Below is my experience based on a two-night stay at the property.

My arrival experience: Warm welcome from the General Manager, Jörg Müller, before being escorted to the room.

What I loved: Many things. Mostly, the staff and their fine dining restaurant.

What about the food: Fantastic evening at their Villers Restaurant. I am surprised it does not have a Michelin-star. The General Manager told me it was a matter of priorities. He wants to give the guest excellent value and fantastic food but getting a Michelin star is not a goal. The best thing on the menu is the dish in the picture above. Salmon freshly imported from the Faroe Islands.

What about the service: Great service from the wonderful staff. Always smiling and ready to help. The property only has 92 rooms, which is unusual for a hotel of its kind. Staff have time to talk and at times, it felt like I was the only guest. The lobby is very quiet and not full of non-guest like most other historical city hotels in Europe.

What about the rooms: Classical rooms, without being outdated. Beautiful bathrooms with Molton Brown products and separate shower from the bathtub.

Number of rooms: 92.


Type of property: Classical city hotel.

Location: Leipzig, Germany.

Facilities: Spa, Swimming pool, gym and meeting/business facilities.

Complimentary internet: Yes, speed at around 1 Mbps. Good enough for video and Skype.

Affiliations: Luxury Collection.

My overall impression: Great+ experience.
