Meliá Hotels International has opened Innside by Meliá Leipzig, as part of the Spanish group’s design and lifestyle brand.
The new four-star superior hotel with 177 rooms and suites is located here at the corner of Dittrichring and Gottschedstraße.
Opposite the St. Thomas Church, the hotel complex is an architectural ensemble that consists of two historical buildings and a modern glass roof structure integrating two palace buildings.
In addition, an entire new structure was erected in between the bank and the Kosmos building that brought the facade of Schlobach Palais back to the cityscape.
The facade was designed by the architect Arwed Rossbach in the middle of the 19th century, featuring extensive front decorations with its six-ft. stone sculptures.
Following the design concept of the Innside by Meliá upscale brand, the property combines an architectural style that blends into the cityscape.
With its modern furnishings and partly floor-to-ceiling windows, the rooms are designed in monochrome colours that match the wood look of the floors.
Indirect lighting provides an eye-catching accent to the space.
The hotel provides a special highlight on the fourth floor with its Balcony Suite, offering views of St. Thomas Church.
With its separate living room and ample floor space, this suite can also be used as an exclusive conference room or a location suitable for dinners.
Three flexible meeting rooms are fully equipped with state-of-the-art media technology, full climate control and daylight.
A fitness room with a sauna and relaxation room are also on the property.
“The Innside by Meliá opened at exactly the right time.
“It goes perfectly with Leipzig’s current self-confidence and its dynamic development.
“As an exciting synthesis of history and avant-garde, the new hotel hotspot ideally integrates into the trade fair city.
“It is our goal to enrich Leipzig’s hotel landscape with lifestyle, design and Spanish flair,” said Kai Lamlé, managing director, Germany, Meliá Hotels International.
“We want to present the perfect address for modern hospitality to international travellers as well as Leipzig citizens in equal measure.”
