Mercure Hotel Leipzig Am Johannisplatz

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

The hotel is easy to get to from the city, clean and the staff are both helpful and friendly. The breakfast bar is really good, though I didn't eat in the hotel in the evening. Check-out was smooth and the price was a little less than my booking confirmation.

This was my first stay at any Mercure hotel and I must say I expected more from a 4 star hotel. The most disappointing aspects were paper-thin, cheap towels which are not up to a 4-star hotel standard and the pillows which were a joke! They don't deserve to be called pillows. As another reviewer mentioned, it's like they're filled with air and the moment your head hits the pillow, it sinks right through it! Obviously I didn't sleep well and that's the biggest problem because I chose a superior room facing the courtyard precisely so that a good night's sleep would be guaranteed. The bathroom was also not up to standard and needs refurbishment. Maybe I'm being too critical of the hotel, but it was pretty expensive (105 EUR for one night, breakfast not included in the price) and the hotel is not even in the city centre, so I expected it to be really grand. And it could be, if only the management would pay attention to the issues I've listed above, pillows being the number one problem. Other than that, the hotel is good. As a silver Accor member, I got free drink vouchers for myself and my partner, which was a nice touch. Breakfast is a bit overpriced (16 EUR per person), but is excellent and includes anything you might wish for. The hot options are eggs (boiled and scrambled), bacon, beans, delicious meatballs. There is also salmon and other fish, I think, as well as typical continental options. I recommend the breakfast and the whole restaurant is very nice. The staff are all great, very polite, and both the check-in and the check-out were a breeze. So I do recommend the hotel, but wish the management would do something about the towels and the pillows so that they might leave a better impression.

This hotel is nice in most respects (rooms, the usual amenities), but if you need to use the Internet (and today-- who doesn't?), you should stay elsewhere. Logging in is a challenge-- it is one of those detestable schemes without a password, but with paid options and the need to fill some form with your name and some number, etc. When that fails (it will), you go downstairs to the reception desk and ask for help, where they have no idea how to get you logged in, and will hand you a sheet of paper with a telephone number to call for technical help. Eventually you might succeed in connecting to the internet, only to discover that the network "speed" is around 1 mbit/second, which is enough to slowly download emails that have no pictures, but is useless for anything else. I short, if you are into expensive (but wonderful) breakfasts, go there. If you need to use the internet for anything-- stay elsewhere.

Booked Mercure Hotel Leipzig Am Johannisplatz as stop over on business. Very easy acces from the motorway. Very nice hotel with a lot of comfort in the room to make your stay comfortable. Nice restaurant with good food and wine - and a super breakfast buffet in the morning.

The check in procedure was very strict and detailed even though I had pre-checked in after receiving an email to do so. They even made me sign an sheet of paper promising not to smoke !! That's a new one - never experienced before anywhere - I don't smoke. The hotel having said that, is very modern - and since we were there for 3 days of sightseeing, I regretted not staying in the IBIS which is much closer for a tourist.

I was visiting the Max Planck Institute, directly across the street. I was in a double room on the 4th floor, in the back -- very quiet at night (not on a street front). The room was comfortable -- a standard double room. The breakfast was pretty good -- a buffet with good selections (somewhat heavy on the meat, which I don't eat). This is not a fancy or luxury hotel, but it is a good place to stay on a business trip. The fitness room has a Jacuzzi/hot tub, which I unfortunately never had time to try. The hotel is about 1 mile (1.6 km) from the central train station -- a little far to walk with a suitcase. My taxi back to the train station was about 8 euro. I took a taxi from the airport which was about 50 euro (I arrived late at night and didn't want to deal with the train.)
