“Our best hotel experience in Germany so far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

This is absolutely pure luxus. We were very satisfied with our stay there.

Friendly and effective staff, who were good at english, where our german vocabulary failed ;0)

Nice, tidy and very quiet rooms with view to the vineyards with their guard towers and a small ruin.

Excellent breakfast. We bought their 3 course menu at night (EUR 25), which was also an experience and could absolutely be recommended.

Nice park with a significant greenhouse for this 250 year old Camellia. Buy your ticket at the reception and get a discount. Take your tour in the park early in the morning or in the afternoon, as the park could be crowded with tourist.

Take the small Ferry across the Elbe. Just drive aboard in your car. Below EUR 5 for the car and two persons. It's just in the "backyard" of the castle and the fastest way to Dresden City. Otherwise you will have to drive along the Elbe.

Take a walk to the vineyards or go there by bike/car. Just 2 km. Good view of the castle, sourranding and Dresden.

It's possible to rent a bike (or bring your own) and discover the area along the Elbe.

Fortress Königsstein is only about 20 km away and an experience too.

We only missed a indoor pool or wellness area.

The Hotel lives up to it's 4-star rating and more. In fact it is much better than many 5-star Hotels I have stayed at. Everything is impeccable - nothing is out of place. The rooms are immaculate and in pristine condition, and have everything except tea/coffee which was surprising. The breakfast was very good, and the evening meals we had were delicious. All of the staff were very courteous, and the bartender Manuel a star. We really felt that the Hotel did all they could to make our occasion as memorable as possible.
The Hotel is/was a part of the Schloss, and occupies a fantastic position next to the Palace and River. It is extremely good value, and it's hard to imagine how it could be improved on (in contrast with Dresden itself which is dull and uniteresting). It's odd that the Hotel does not have an English version of its website.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

We stayed here for Christmas 2011. The rooms were large and clean. The staff were great, not all could speak English but many could and they all went out of their way to help. The restaurant was wonderful.
It was a lovely family run hotel which was lovely particularly over Christmas.
Because we travelled by train the hotel picked us up and dropped us off at the train station.
I would definitely stay here again it is a beautiful place.

Requested a upper level room (would highly recommend this--so you can leave windows open with privacy). Our room overlooked the outdoor restaurant seating and garden area. Room was extremely clean with a large bathroom (very nice!!!). Take a walk through the grounds and down to the castle's verdanda are overlooking the Elbe River and watch river cruise boats and just imagine what it must have been like years ago. Enjoyed a ride in one of the hotel vehicles (ours was a BMW sedan) for 25 euros to the train station. Well worth it! As others have mentioned, excellent breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: upper level room for more visual privacy overlooking courtyard/restaurant. Tree canopy over restaur...

Dresden is a live example of what mankind can do, for the good and for the bad. After the terror and destruction left by WWII, the wonderful historic buildings were rebuilt at perfection. Just a few kilometers away from the fantastic historic town, the Schloss Hotel Pillnitz is a gorgeous destination for romance and gastronomy. The hotel is spotless, with friendly staff and a fantastic restaurant. Taking a peaceful walk in the castle garden after a fantastic meal under a full moon is a privilege not to be forgotten.

The Schlosshotel Dresden-Pillnitz is ideally situated between Dresden, Saxon Switzerland and among other nice places the Bad Schandau, located in fabulous castle surroundings.
Staff really outdid themselves, when my wife and I visited the hotel in mid-October, '08. Room was nicely rustic, super-clean and with most options, including a hairdryer and fridge. Exceptionally clean bathroom & shower, and the whole hotel seems to have been refurbished just "days ago", as everything just gleams! We are giving a full five stars to this 4-star hotel!

After staying in and driving through centers of several large cities-Budapest and Prague, we really enjoyed the quiet relaxing atmosphere of the Schlosshotel Dresden Pillintz. Even though the location is more than a 20 minute drive into Dresden, this area directly next to the palace is lovely and local restaurants were delightful. There is a nearby ferry and then a bus ride into the city but we did not use it. We thought that breakfast was one of the best in our 16 days of travel, but their restaurant was very over-priced for lunch and dinner. The rooms were comfortable and decorated nicely, but there is no business center to use internet . The staff was helpful , pleasant and all spoke English. We would have extended our 2 night stay if available.

  • Liked — More relaxing atmosphere than city center and beauty of the area. Also the wonderful palace next door
  • Disliked — 20 minute + drive into Dresden
