When I planned our trip to Dresden I found out that all the downtown hotels in our price range had no more rooms left, so we decided we would give the Mercure Elbpromenade a try and we did not regret it.
Check in by a friendly, enthusiastic and efficient young man was a breeze. Our room was big by European standards and had the usual amenities except a room safe, so I had to bring my laptop to the reception for safekeeping during the day when we were sightseeing. We had a room with water view that was absolutely quiet. (room 227) Everything was spotlessly clean and worked well. Two complementary bottles of mineral water and one of apple juice were in the mini-fridge.
The breakfast buffet had a wide variety of food to suit all tastes, staff was well-trained, friendly but not intrusive. The hotel is situated about 3 km or a 10 minutes tram-ride from downtown in a mostly industrial area. A train station is about 130 metres away if you want to travel by train, there is free parking on the hotel grounds or an inside parking for a fee. On the day of our departure we simply walked the few steps to the train station "Bahnhof Cotta", took a local train that brought us to Dresden Main Station in 7 minutes and took a train to Berlin.
Internet is provided by an outside supplier and has different rate plans. I used a 60 minutes plan where you log on and off at will and it lasted me two days at a cost of 3.95€.
