Upon arriving in the hotel we were warmly greeted by the Hotel Staff and the super adorable Hotel Dog - dalmatian Greta ! The Staff was very friendly and had awesome tips on how to spend our time in Leipzig ! Whenever we passed the reception all of the employees seemed happy and were always smiling and in a good mood - no matter what time of day it was ! Our room was really big and very clean and we a had a huge balcony with a nice view . The offered breakfast was very good with a huge variety and totally worth the money ! All in all The stay in this hotel was very pleasant and if we go back to Leipzig this will be the place to stay ! We travel quite often and the staff in this hotel was a delight !
The receptionist greeted us with saying that we were very complicated. We had not asked for anything. We do mot ecpect to be evaluated by the staff when checking in. No one in the reception smiled at any time during our stay. I thought it was candid camera but it was for real. We will never come close to this hotel chain again. There are many similar complains already and no action from owners. I think they should move all personell from the reception to a reception at a nuclear plant or some high security workplace. They would do a good job there.
Very small room, hardly good for one, chair you can hardly move as there is no room. basically it is a bed and TV, walking distance from the city center (ab. 800 m) there are many hotels around the old city area, breakfast is ok. Parking is at the basement, very narrow way in/out.
Hotel was OK, rooms were pretty nice and clean, as expected. Check-in experience was not great. A welcome smile doesn't cost anything ... Location was great, just 5 minutes walk distance from down-town.
This hotel has a funky, modern design. There is cabinetry built around the bed that perfectly and expertly houses things like the room's safe, the mini-bar, closet space, and also becomes a little night table on each side of the bed complete with a power outlet on each side for convenient cell phone charging. The hotel has nice, bold colours and my room had a large drawing of Keanu Reeves, which I thought was pretty funny. The hotel has no parking. You can park on the street (which was completely packed when I got there); street parking is free after 8pm and until 9am the next day. Or you can park 2.5 blocks away at the nearby zoo's parking garage, for EUR6 per 24hours, but it didn't look like there was in/out privileges (granted, I didn't ask). The location is a little ways away from the main downtown tourist area where the Bach museum is, and could probably easily be walked, however since I was planning to carry on to Berlin after visiting the museum, I decided to drive downtown and park again there. There is a very large parking garage underneath the markt. I didn't partake in the hotel's breakfast service, however they did have a to-go offering of a cup of coffee and a muffin for EUR5, which I thought was a fantastic touch for those of us heading out early.
Ok I went the extra ( minimal charge ) for room with balcony Well not just that which is good but the room was huge Had tea coffee facilities Bathrobes Only English news Channels Ten mins walk from main station Breakfast is €15 but tbh very good range and filled me until evening so worth it About 20 mins walk to the main attractions of city but pleasant Beware passing tram noise from early !
I have stayed twice in about three months. The first time I thought it rather strange. I think it is still a little odd but my impression has improved. The first time I stayed I had to stand for some time as there was no-one at reception. Then I was required to sign some sheet of paper confirming that I knew the dire consequences of having a cigarette in the hallowed hotel. As an Accor platinum member I have never seen anything like this in one of their hotels, or indeed any hotel. It is quite rude I think, and authoritarian, as if they do not trust their terrifying, addicted guests not to keep their hands off the tobacco. And I don't even smoke. The rooms are decorated in an, um, unique style, with Aristotle quotations juxtaposed with modern art portraits of Hollywood stars such as Bruce Willis. Apart from that, the rooms are decent and I have seen via being upgraded, and not being upgraded, two different standards. It is only one tram stop from the Hauptbahnhof, so it is well located. The prices are not too bad either.
This is a friendly hotel in the immediate proximity of Leipzig central station. I arrived early, and my room was not ready (yet). I was shown to the lounge, got a cup of coffee and could access the free wifi of the hotel. Ultimately I was shown my room, at the second floor, well stocked, and a comfortable bed and small office chair and table. Great. The downside is that when you enter the room you need to put your access card in a specific slot to kickstart the energy. No issues with that, but by doing so, the TV set springs to life and a blaring sound fills your room. Not so much appreciated and my suggestion is to kill that default (would spare a lot of energy in addition). Speaking of energy, by accident I had left my charging cable at home. I asked the ladies at the reception whether they had a solution and they had. One of them borrowed me her personal charger. That is cool. I returned it next day. So my punch line; nice hotel, great personnel.
Not been before, but will come again. For some reason the Novotel in Leipzig has closed, and I did wonder about the location of the Mercure Art. But it's not far from the main station, a tram stop is very conveniently placed nearby and it's the right side of town for the Zoo and one of the main parks. Also, the slightly quieter location meant I got an excellent night's sleep every night I was there. Room was excellent, modern, large bathroom, good-sized balcony. Breakfast worked well and I never had to wait for a table. I don't think they do evening meals but I wasn't after one anyway. Friendly staff and pleasant area at the front to sit, where I was offered a drink. Pity the lift packed up twice as my room was on the fifth floor, but they had someone in promptly to mend it. WiFi was free and worked well but you do have to keep logging in every time with a password and it covered only one item at a time. Overall I would certainly recommend it.
The hotel is situated close to main station but not in a tourist area (but close to a supermarket KONSUM), the rooms are great unconventional with an art touch. The staff was very friendly and helped with all questions. The status advantages where given; I didn't take breakfast.
