HOTELS
Leipzig is a major Conference City, and has many hotels to suit all budgets. The Centre area of Leipzig has approximately 12,000 Hotel
rooms on its own.

NOTE: When I created this website back in 2006 there was little information about Hotels, today there are many sites where you can
book hotels and read reviews, therefore in the interests of keeping this site more up to date I have decided to remove all the hotel
pages and just add an overview of Hotels in Leipzig (this page). This will allow me to keep the other pages more up to date, apologies
to those that have supplied reviews in the past, I thank you for your words and ratings.

HOTELS - SO MANY BUT WHERE SHOULD I STAY?
My advice is to stay in the city centre, as close to the Station as possible, this will provide you with an excellent base to get around
Leipzig and put you in staggering distance of most nightclubs in the evening. As for the actual hotel to pick, that will depend on how
much money you are willing to pay for a good nights sleep.

Looking at the map below I would advise staying in the Zentrum / Mitte area of Leipzig, followed by Sud (or South, which is closer to the
Agra), staying as close to the centre of town as possible.

SO WHAT IS THE BEST HOTELS TO STAY IN - WHERE DO YOU STAY?
Hotels across Leipzig, like many cities vary considerably, ranging from posh 5 Star Hotels like the Fuerstenhof to cheap hotels like the
Ibis. Below is a list in Rank order of the best 80 Hotels in and around Leipzig based on Customer Ratings, Highest Price and Distance
from the Station. I have highlighted 8 Hotels in Yellow as these tend to be the most popular hotels used by international visitors during
WGT.

HOTEL BOOKING ADVICE - WHEN SHOULD I
BOOK?
Hotels fill up very quickly, most people will book their hotel a year in advance with
some booking as they leave. Motel One is very popular as its quite cheap and in
an excellent location. My advice is to reserve a room as early as possible, you can
always cancel closer to the date if you cannot go, or find a better deal.

I also strongly advise shopping around for Hotel prices, the price you are quoted
especially via hotels own websites can be at the top end of the price range, a few
weeks before WGT you may find that prices come down, so keep checking
throughout the year.

There are many websites where you can book a hotel, however my personal
favorite is
Trivago (as this site checks the prices on a range of other websites and
gives you the cheapest price).

AHHH, ITS NEARLY WGT AND I HAVE NOT
BOOKED -
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Don't Panic, you will find a hotel, it may not be the best, or be in the best location,
but you will find something (although it may take a bit of hunting). Go for
somewhere south of the city centre or just north of the station. There are a couple
of hotels down near the Agra that may have empty rooms and maybe worth
checking (The Atlanta Hotel International).

HOTEL ALTERNATIVES - WHERE ELSE CAN i STAY?
There is an alternative to staying in a Hotel, you can stay in a Guest house / B&B (called Pensions) or in an Apartment. These will be
cheaper and will take a little more work to find (as most of the websites seem to be in German only).

Apartments are getting more popular, some are only rented out for WGT...there are a couple of sites out there to help you book these
but the best has to be
Airbnb . Apartments tend to be located away from the City centre (in more residential areas, however they are
cheaper and give you more flexibility when it comes to eating and getting up etc.)
