8/10 Very good

Really enjoyed the close proximity to the Christmas market and ease of access to the train station. The Valet Parking was super helpful - I would not have otherwise wanted to attempted to park my car myself.

Exceptional!! Beautiful rooms, thoughtful extra items with fabulous smelling soaps and lotions. Super quiet even with Christmas market outside. Phenomenal breakfast!! Every food I loved was there: poached eggs, salmon, veggies, muesli, a million breads and cheese and omelets to order. Full German, English and American breakfast foods and fish and cheeses. Wonderful coffee and free champagne. Service was so polite and attentive. Hot hot sauna and steam room were great after all the sights and museums of Leipzig. We went to the opera dressed to the max from this posh hotel and it felt just right.

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.
