Mercure Hotel Leipzig Am Johannisplatz

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was out for a weekend trip with a friend and we chose Mercure as the hotel is close to the rail station as well as the city centre. The rooms were pretty spacious and clean with all amenities provided for. The breakfast spread was also quite a bit with lactose free and gluten free options. Overall pretty impressed with this Mercure.

The Mercure Hotel is an OK Hotel for a short trip. Nothing to complain here, just that it needs a little TLC and updating. The breakfast is great with everything you’d want. Reception staff is very friendly, restaurant and bar staff not so much. A big issue was, that the heating in my room didn’t work the first night and my room seemed to have been an ex smoking room. A smell you just can’t escape.

A comfortable stay for four days. Room was clean and spacious, breakfast was good, but cooked breakfasts in Germany never deliver like ones in GB. The hotel was 10 minutes walk from the heart of Leipzig which meant it was quiet but convenient. The bath towels were a bit small, but that was my only gripe. The staff were buisness like, knowledgeable and friendly. Not the height of luxury but a good base for a few days. The room was a bit warm at night and lacked air conditioning. I would stay there again for buisness, but not for a treat.

I spent the weekend at this hotel and I have to say, the best I can say was that it was very average indeed. The decor is straight from the 90s! When I checked in, I was informed that I had been given one of the nicest rooms in the hotel! It was fine but if that was one of the best rooms, I dread to think what the others were like. This hotel does not have aircon and was like a greenhouse! Nothing can be done about the weather of course, but perhaps the hotel could offer a fan? My Accor status wasn't recognized once here - not the end of the world but usually Accor hotels at least mention it! I had dinner in the bar after I arrived. Every hotel bar in the world does a decent burger so I thought I would try theirs. It arrived and whilst it looked good, it wasn't just cold in the middle, it was actually still frozen! There's absolutely no excuse for that! I wasn't offered a discount/refund - I was given 4 small slices of bread with olive oil with a comment that it was "with the complements" of the chef. Breakfast was pretty decent to be fair - there was a good selection of hot and cold food to cater for most palettes. Apparently this hotel has a 4 star rating - I would challenge that and say that it's 3 Star at a push. I am a regular guest at one of the Berlin Mercure hotels, which is a world apart from this and has a 3 star rating. Disappointing - I would not return to this hotel at all. I am a loyal Accor guest and hence chose this - however I would recommend looking at another Leipzig hotel - there are plenty better choices.

Apart from the check in, the staff i talked to to book a taxi or for direction were incredibly unprofessional and made you feel like you were annoying them. In the evening i asked a receptionist to call a taxi, she bearly acknowledged me, made a call -to the taxi company; they seemed to have a great laugh!- then went back to chatting with her colleagues. I called her back, asked if she did book it, she seemed bothered just answered "yes!" and went back to chatting. The room itself was ok, nothing special and looked old. I won't come back.

Perfect hotel if you are going to WGT. Close to Moritzbastei, the trams and the center of Leipzig. The hotel is wellknown Mercure quality - good rooms, nice personnelle and good facilities. Recommended.

The hotel is in a very quiet area near the Medecine school. The restaurant offers very good food. There are not so many restaurants option in that area so one can eat at the hotel three times a day. The staff is friendly.

In many ways, this Mercure hotel is absolutely perfect. Great location, nice rooms, friendly staff, etc... but how on earth can they be running a 4* hotel without air condition? Beats me. But heck, as long as it's not too hot outside, I'm always happy to stay here.

Hotel check in fast and quick,rooms superb and clean . Hotel was smart and clean and had a relaxing bar area. Breakfast room was large ,clean and airy . vast range of breakfast from full english to continental

This Hotel is great for a business stay in Leipzig. There is WiFi in the hotel, good service at the reception and at the bar. The rooms are clean and quiet. The center for shopping or restaurants is 7 minutes walking distance.
