This country-style retreat across from a cemetery in leafy southern Leipzig is a pleasant antidote to a busy day on the tourist track. The Battle of Nations Monument and various natural attractions are within walking distance...

Spotless, well-maintained and near the Hauptbahnhof.
Seaside Park Hotel Leipzig
Facilities, including a large wellness area, are good in this conveniently located art nouveau–style business hotel.
Flair Hotel Alt Connewitz
Saxon hospitality is alive and well at this mother-and-son operation in the southern suburb of Connewitz. Rooms are older but in great shape and the restaurant's home-cooked meals are the perfect hunger weapon...
Victor's Residenz Hotel Leipzig
There's something comfortably stuffy about this venerable abode behind a stately Art Nouveau facade. It's welcomed visitors since 1911 and now treats guests to updated old-world flair and friendly, unfussy service...
The Westin Leipzig

Galerie Hotel Leipziger Hof
Leipzig's most unique place to unpack your bags is this 'gallery with rooms', which brims with originals created by local artists since 1989. It's a first-rate stay, yet relatively affordable, as is the restaurant.
Hotel Fuerstenhof, A Luxury Collection Hotel
The grande dame of the Leipzig hotel scene, with a 200-year-old pedigree, finds umpteen ways to spoil its guests. It has updated old-world flair, impeccable service, a gourmet restaurant and an oh-so-soothing grotto-style pool and spa.
Novotel Leipzig City
Good value, central and great for families.
Motel One Leipzig Nikolaikirche

Leonardo Hotel Und Residenz
This modern oasis of charm in southern Leipzig may not be in the thick of things, but it's actually a great base if you're headed for concerts at Werk II or Conne Island. The bus stops right outside, making getting into town a snap as well...
