6/10 Good

Why are there giant Ukrainian flags hanging outside of your hotel? Why do you think clients need to know to whom you support on a distant conflict? How about focusing on your hospitality job instead of meddling in politics. I do not appreciate your virtue signaling. On a more particular note, bed arrangament was uncomfortable.

City Hotel
Located in the center of town for easy walking. Nice, big rooms. There is no cafe, just a bar. Nice for drinking but not for eating. Either pay way more to eat a good but limited menu or walk outside to the many available alternatives.

Beautiful grand hotel in perfect location
The hotel combines contemporary luxury with classical grand hotel charm. My room was spacious with a separate dressing area and large bathroom with separate bath and shower. The bed was super comfortable. All the furnishings were of the highest quality. I had a view of the main square and the room was very quiet as the sound insulation was very good. Due to covid the restaurant was closed but it was possible to get dinner in the elegant bar. The breakfast had a very good selection of tasty cooked items and a selection of cold cuts cheeses and breads was provided to each table on an elegant 3 tiered plate holder, which was a very nice touch. Unfortunately the spa was shut due to covid, but I am sure it would be worth a visit once life returns to normal. The hotel staff were all charming and helpful. The hotel is luxurious in the true sense of the word ie wonderful comfort and service without being ostentatious. The location in the heart of Leipzig is perfect as well.I thoroughly recommend it and will stay there again next time I am in Leipzig
