Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski
Ranked #8 of 118 Hotels in Dresden
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Taschenbergpalais is a hotel of highest German standards when it comes to service, location and comfort. Rooms, catering and location leave little to wish for. Breakfast buffet with its 100 Kempinski signature items is a treat. Location is just opposite the Green Vault, the treasure chambre of the Saxon royalty, a must to every visitor. No wonder Taschenbergpalais is charged with hosting state guests and functions like President Obama, Quaan Silvia or the G7 Ministerial meeting in 2015.

This hotel has everything for me, a fabulous location right in the centre of everything that you must see in Dresden, smiling helpful staff, and great facilities within the hotel itself.
We received the warmest of welcomes on our arrival, were guided to our room and our luggage brought up to us immediately. Our room, a 'superior double', had views directly over the gardens of the Zwinger opposite and an excellent desk area. Standard Wi-Fi comes free here (worth mentioning since my recent stay at a very expensive 5-star elsewhere incurred extra charges for this). The bathroom was spacious with bath, roomy shower cubicle, and lovely toiletries. I especially liked the completely separate toilet.
There is a great Bar and excellent restaurants here, so after a day sightseeing it's tempting to just relax and not leave the Hotel! I especially enjoyed the Palais Bistro and Karl May bar (reviewed separately) and also the delicious pastries in the Cafe Vestibul. There is also a beautiful open air courtyard for summer dining which had just opened as we left.
This was the nicest Hotel I have stayed in for some time and I look forward to returning.

Dear FemaleFoodie,
Thank you for leaving such a positive evaluation on Tripadvisor.
We are happy that especially the location in Dresden’s historical centre as well as the view from your guest room have met your expectations and were to your liking.
How lovely that you had the opportunity to visit most of our restaurants such as Palais Bistro, Café Vestibül and Karl May Bar and we really enjoyed your individual reviews of the different outlets.
We are proud of your comment and we have gladly shared it with our colleagues.
Dear FemaleFoodie, it would be our pleasure to welcome you again – maybe in winter, when the above-mentioned courtyard is turned into a sparkling ice rink.
Best wishes,
Your team at Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden

I love this hotel. It is beautiful. Very luxurious, comfortable. What you would expect from a luxury hotel. Our room was lovely and had a double aspect overlooking beautiful architecture. It is centrally located--perfect for the Christmas markets, which, by the way, are fantastic. Really want to go back.

What can I say. From check-in, the staff was attentive and friendly. The door man chased us down just to hand us an umbrella, he said that it might rain according to the forecast.
We had a junior suite and it could fit an entire family of 4 in the suite. Had a lovely little terrace with a view.
Had afternoon cakes and tea there. Superb

In a beautiful location, in the old centre of Dresden, you feel as if you are Royalty yourself in one of the palaces there.
Excellent service, wonderful room and ideal location.
Breakfast exceeds your expectations if you expect the normal buffet...
No wonder so many famous guests have chosen this hotel before.

Already booking a Kempinski hotel is a guarantee of satisfaction. This one is amazing. All services perfect, from the beginning to the end. Spa is ok, with all services, breakfast and the restaurants superbe. All staff nobody excluded kind and professional. Only negative thing, we requested a king size bed and they gave us a room with two beds together. Little thing in an amazing experience..

Room Tip: Specify properly which kind of room you want and bed size.
