Maritim Hotel Dresden
Ranked #11 of 118 Hotels in Dresden
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We stayed three nights at the start of a cycling tour. The hotel was not difficult to find by public transport, S Bahn to Dresden mitte then 10 mins walk. It is 5 mins walk north of the sights of the Altstadt, especially convenient for the opera and Zwinger art gallery. It is also only 15 mins walk to the Neustadt.
The hotel is very smart and has an enormous parking area underground. The staff were helpful and efficient but those in the breakfast buffet seemed rather busy and disinterested. Our room was a large standard room with a slightly obstructed view of the river. It was comfortable but there were no tea/coffee facilities in the room and internet use was 5 euro/day. Being on the first floor we would have liked to use the stairs but these are restricted for emergency use and so we had to queue for the busy lifts.
The breakfast buffet was busy, with lovely views of the river and a wonderful choice of meats, cheeses, cereals, dairy, hot and cold food and drinks, fruit and salad.
We would gladly stay there again.

Room Tip: Standard rooms tend not to have the best river views. Upper floors would have better views but more...

Dear guest, thank you for your feedback in regards to your stay here in our Maritim Hotel Dresden. Both praise and constructive criticism are important for us, therefore we are thankful for evaluating our hotel on tripadvisor.com. As per our understanding you felt comfortable in our Hotel with any problems apart. Further to your suggestion of opening the doors for taking the stairs, we ask for your understanding that those doors always need to be kept close in order to protect the safety on the floors. We are currently testing to provide free internet for guests of Maritim Hotels in Berlin and if this is going to be a success, it will probably get applied on other hotels of the chain as well. So maybe it will be free of charge during one of your future stays in Dresden. We feel very sorry you couldn’t really enjoy the breakfast because of our staff in the restaurant. We ensure that we spoke to our restaurant manager to work on constant improvements in the near future. Nevertheless, thank you once again for your stay with us and we would certainly be happy to welcome you in the future again while staying in Dresden.
Kind Regards,
Jörg Bacher, General Manager

Stayed here with my wife for two nights in May, great location by the river and a pleasant stroll into town, ten minutes. The food, service and a fantastic breakfast together with a large room with plenty of space, I will be back here, that's for sure. G Cook

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the river.

The Dresden Maritim is a first class hotel, right on the river bank and very close to the city centre. Accommodation is excellent and breakfast is superb. However we have one criticism:

We arrived on 7th May and on entering our allocated room, immediately noticed a very strong smell of stale cigarettes. There were ash trays in the room. We returned to reception and requested a transfer to a non-smoking room. The person behind the desk insisted that this was a non-smoking room and that they could not move us as they were fully booked. She made no offer of cleaning or freshening the room. Our tour guide, Chris from Riviera Travel, very kindly insisted that we exchange rooms with her, which we did.

Advice to travellers: Make sure you insist on a non-smoking room at the time of booking. Also make sure you get two room key cards as you will both need one to operate the lift.

Advice to hotel: Don't completely book all rooms. Leave one or two empty in case of unforeseen circumstances.

Room Tip: Don't let them fob you off with a smoking room!

On our visit to Germany we stayed at The Maritim Hotel which was part of our package and it was well worth paying a little extra to stay in such a superb Hotel. The Maritim was next to the conference cantre and overlooking the river Elbe and within walking distance to the main tourist sights of Dresden. Huge atrium with glass lifts, but only 2 of them which work on a security card system but you often have to wait some time particularly in mornings and earlt evening. Large rooms. Great breakfast. Helpful staff. A great base from which to explore Dresden on foot.... shopping mall and restaurants....yet very quiet. Close to be able to take a boat trip.Bar does not open until 5.30pm!! and its for smokers...what a shame.

Well located on the riverbank, a close walk to the historic center of Dresden, the Maritim Hotel is right next door to a major conference center.
My wife and I stayed for three nights, on our first visit to Dresden.
The hotel looks like it may once have been a large mill building, that has been converted to a hotel.
The entrance leads to a soaring atrium, with two glassed-in elevators efficiently serving the rooms on seven floors.
The restaurant overlooks the river.
Our room was spacious, well designed and comfortable, equipped with attractive, matching art deco design furniture and furnishings, and was spotlessly maintained throughout our stay.
The bathroom was also spacious, with separated toilet, and bath/shower combination.
Everything functioned well.
Our only - and minor - complaint was that we were provided with only one small bar of soap during our stay, and there was no facial tissue ( kleenex ) provided in the room.
We thought the room price was very reasonable.
We would stay there again.

Room Tip: An upper floor room overlooking the river would be an ideal location.

Dear Guest,
Thank you so much for your positive feedback about your stay in our Maritim Hotel Dresden. As we can read you’d really enjoyed your stay here in Dresden. You’re nearly right as you said these building were a mill building. In the historic the 100 year old building was used as a warehouse in the first years 1913/1914 for tobacco, wool or e.g. spices. We’ve noted your comment relating to the soap and told it our executive Housekeeper. It would be nice to welcome you again in our hotel.

I spent a couple of nights at the Maritim whilst attending a congress. The quality of the rooms is very good, decoration and cleanliness not to be criticised and the bed was most comfortable The hotel provided excellent food for a large number of guests and the staff were all extremely friendly.
Of course one of the highlights of the hotel is that it lies alongside the Elbe and is only a short distance from Dresden centre and the sights.
I can recommend this hotel to the discerning traveller.

First trip to Dresden. Organised tour via Riviera Travel . Excellent Hotel. Huge converted warehouse on the banks of the river. 10 min walk into town. Great lobby area . Glass lifts that took some getting used to . Would have liked stairs other than the fire escape . Made the busy times a little frustrating. ( minor niggle ) Excellent room . Very quiet. Amazing breakfast in a lovely room over looking the river. Probably the best breakfast selection we have seen. Would have liked some free wifi i have to say. 15mins thats all would have been nice . No problems as u could buy a day pass for 5euros. (minor niggle again) . Great stay and would recommend the hotel no problem. Very helpful staff, no problems with english speaking.

Room Tip: Floor one was excellent and quiet .
