The Westin Leipzig is a nice place with very friendly staff, a beautiful lobby, and with an efficient business air to it. I immediately wasn't crazy about the fact that no Internet access was available for anything less than 15 euros a day, but this is an unfortunately common staple of "high end" hotels, so I wasn't overly surprised. The fact that the advertised pool amenity also has a special pay per use surchage did surprise me though, and not in a good way. Give it another five years and this hotel will be charging for use of in-room towels. Its location is a rock solid B. It's quite close to the central train station, which is very convenient, but getting to anything interesting from it generally requires crossing some busy and not-particularly-pedestrian-friendly roads. Its immediate vicinity is fairly sterile and mostly devoid of anything interesting. The rooms were clean, but small. They had a "master switch" near the entrance instead of the more European-typical key card slot, which was nice, because at least I could charge my laptop while I was out of the room. Leipzig is quite a beautiful city, so I'd very much recommend staying at something a little lively and inside the city center (which is possible at similar price points to the Westin). That said, if you're just looking for a bed with reasonable cleanliness and helpful staff, the Westin isn't a bad choice.
Polite and professional staff. However, the hotel chain need to come up to speed in providing what their North American counterparts provide in rooms. Iron and ironing boards, alarm clocks, 110-240 volts, round and flat pins are necessities and not luxury. Come on this is the information age, provide 1-5 computers with internet access to your clientele for free. Its good business.
good location while visiting Leipzig, friendly and helpful staff
Centrally located within easy walking distance of the Hauptbahnhof - the main train station. The city's streetcar hub is right at the main station, also, so you can easily get to just about anywhere in Leipzig. It's important to note that the train station is nothing like what might come to mind if you think of main train stations in the U.S. It is clean, safe, and has two sublevels of bright, attractive shops and clean, comfortable, and affordable food stores and restaurants. It even has a post office!
