For some alternatives, look at the Steigenberger Grandhotel Handelshof Leipzig and the Radisson Blu Hotel, Leipzig. They are 25 kilometres and 25 kilometres respectively from the center. If those two don't suit you, try the Hotel Fuerstenhof, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Leipzig or the Leipzig Marriott Hotel.
