The Westin Bellevue Dresden
Ranked #25 of 118 Hotels in Dresden
Reviewed 4 September 2013

As a SPG member, I often stay with Westin. This hotel has a good view of the city, and is a convenient stroll across the bridge to the inner city. However, the service, ambiance and rooms of the hotel are about average for a chain hotel. I would put it this way- if you are planning on paying for your room in Dresden versus using points to stay at the Westin, choose the Kempinski in the city , which is far nicer, and not much different in price. Obviously if you can stay free with points at the Westin, it is a no brainier.

Room Tip: You want a river view room, which has great view of the old city, especially at night

We stayed in this hotel last week for a friend's wedding (the wedding was not in this hotel but all the guests were staying here). It was a lovely hotel, with a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk from Old Town. The hotel was proper equipped the way a luxury hotel should be and the breakfast spread was very good although it should be made a part of the hotel accommodation and should not be so expensive. However, we did make an international call from the hotel room once and we were charged at an exorbitant rate of 8 eu per minute. that was ridiculous. The hotel also made a blunder by charging our card twice, anyway when we told them to cancel the transaction they did so but that kind of mistake should not be made.Further, I had asked for a double bed room but our beds were separate which had to be joined together. That is not a preferred option. However, overall stay was very good and we would be happy to return.

We travelled to see a concert on the riverbank, and the receptionist tipped me off that the band we were seeing were staying in the hotel. I liked that. The reception area is very well kept. Our room was a long way from the reception, and overlooked the main road, but the insulation was good, and I like being able to see the action. As well as being near the concert venue, we were just over the bridge from the old town, which is beautiful. I would also not miss the chance to visit the new town on the same side of the river. I thought 21 euro for breakfast was a bit expensive, and a bakery over the road in the new town did a super spread for 5 euro. The tram stop is right outside the hotel if you want to explore on public transport. I would definitely come here again if I had the chance.

Room Tip: One side of the hotel looks out over the river and old town. This is probably a betterview.

The hotel is excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful. our rooms had views over the river and were very spacious. The breakfast, which was not included in the price, was amazing with lots of variety. The hotel is in a great position nice and quiet and as a bonus has it's own beer garden. we did not have time to try out the pool as we were so busy sightseeing. A hotel that makes your holiday complete.

If you're looking for somewhere comfortable to stay then I can recommend this place. I stayed here for just one night on a road trip through Germany and found it to be very comfy. Bed was nice and the views from my room where good too! The hotel is a short walk to the 'old' Dresden making it a great place to leave the car whilst exploring town.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with city views

I would give 4 stars for this hotel, only because it is a bit old, especially the pool is very old school. It is not luxury rather comfy feeling. They do provide slippers and many other stuffs as long as you require them. Great location, just 10 min walking distance to attractions. However, I do not recommend to couples that have babies, as it is not convienient to lift the strollers when you get up to the bridge in order to get to old town. I am also not impressed with breakfast , find it pretty ordernary. The hotel has a nice garden but it is not modern, hence you only see lots of old folks around.
