“Average hotel, too far from attractions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2011

Hotel is OK but misses the small 'plus' to make your stay a pleasure!

Location is not convenient. Tram 12 was out of order due to works in progress, hard to get to the attractions in historic town and 'neustadt'.

Breakfast was too expensive (17,5Euros).

Nice staff

We were on a motorcycle tour and arrived bedraggled with no reservation, so were very pleased when we were greeted with such a friendly welcome! Luckily we got a room on the 6th floor, and whilst the signage stated the hotel was currently being upgraded there was nothing noticably dated - the room and bathroom was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for an overnight stop.

The hotel has an underground car park which is a real bonus when travelling by motorbike! We were also given a very good recommendation for supper that evening by the hotel reception.

Breakfast was a lovely full spread, and we sat outside in the courtyard which was a great start to the day. I was very pleased we stayed here and would definitely recommend it to a friend.

I researched this hotel on Trip Advisor before I booked a room and the only negative comment was "The pillows are too soft". True they are but apart from that everything was excellent. Would definitely stay there again.

Location: in a quiet area, in the World Trade Center building, Dresden’s attractions within walking range (about 10-15 minutes away, or two stops by tram 12, stopping right outside the hotel).
Frontdesk: kind of mixed feeling, the girl checking us in rolled her eyes when we requested a quiet room far away from the lifts; fellow-workers were all friendly and supportive.
Room: had 439 for 2 nights, to the garden-side (that's the quiet side!), room very small, could open our hard-case Samsonite, and deposit it in an open condition, only after having rearranged some of the furniture; walls very thin, in the corners it seems, that upper surface of wall is of card-board (?) [see picture proviede]; the bed is kind of small queen-size, in addition, when your partner moves, the mattrasse, one piece, moves too, so getting some nice sleep kind of difficult. pillows small and too soft.
Important: it seems that the majority of rooms get burned by the sun; the room has a ventilator up on the ceiling; so choose a room on any floor accordingly when booking; the hotel offers some protection, though: at exactly, I guess, 8 o’clock in the morning the canvas blinds in front of each window in the rooms come out, to provide some shade, so that the rooms don’t heat up dramatically during the day.
Breakfast: GREAT, wide choice, enjoy.
Garage: in basement, charge you about EUR 12/day, you may leave the garage and come back various times a day, ticket is provided by hotel.
Internet: rip-off, EUR 8 / hour, provided by T-Mobile hot-spot only. Disgusting, WLAN and internet should be included in the services any hotel offers, even the ***** Thailand- and Cambodia hotels we stayed in about 2 weeks ago, most had internet for free, and that at a great speed ! Unbelievable !

Rooms are a good size, quite and clean. Beds are comfortable, but the pillows are a bit too soft. Bathroom was a good size with good water pressure, but the water wnet a bit hot and cold, but nothing to worry about. Parking is under the hotel at 12 euro a night - quite reasonable compared to some places around Europe. We did noy eat breakfast at the hotel as it was 18.50 euor per person which is very expensive. We went to the mall and had breakfast for 6 euro. Hotel has free internet,

In my first visit to Dredesn I was very pleased to have had this hotel recommended by a local Dresden resident. It was extremely clean, very quiet (day and night), very warm in colors and decor, excellent breakfast and dining, and very close to the central part of the city...easy and refreshing walk of 7 minutes. The rate was excellent and provided great value for my Euros. The only (minor) negative is that they did not exchange dollars at the front desk. I found so many things to buy in Dresden that I ran out of Euros! But this hotel deserves its fine reputation and, for sure, I will be back!

Very nice hotel, the information provided by booking.com or tripadvisor.com fully reflects the reality and therefore reading the info on these websites and then coming there, we thought that we were already there before.
Room very clean and nice with very comfortable bed. Very nice bathroom with large towels.
Perfect breakfast, with the great selection - eggs, sausages, salads, vegetables, fruit, cheeses, salmon, ham, salami, etc.
Looking forward to come back.
