The Motel One Nikolaikirche is in the perfect location: directly in the city centre of Leipzig, Germany, next to to the Nikolaikirche. It is an easy and pleasant six minutes walk along streets with art nouveau decorations from the railway station to the hotel. The old town hall, Auerbachs Keller and the Museum der bildenden Künste are just around the corner. It is a good hotel chain and I absolutely love their reduced design. The bar, of course, is called 89 and the decorations show scenes from the peaceful German revolution in 1989 – the way to German reunification.
I arrived at 12 am and they already had a room ready for me; otherwise, I could have stored my luggage with them. At arrival, I received a large bottle of Viva con agua mineral water which is great so I didn’t have to buy something for the night. Rooms are rather small but well designed. Wifi works great and hassle-free. The only thing that could be improved is breakfast: they say it is mostly organic but some things are missing like scrambled eggs or something warm.
