Reviewed 30 April 2014

I stayed here for a week in March while attending a conference at TU Dresden. The location is ideal being right next to the train station and having major tram stops a couple of minutes walk away. My room was nice; clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. I would recommend staying here for business or if you plan to spend most of your days out and about. My colleague had a few minor complaints (towels too small and rough, bed not comfortable enough) which I didn't agree with but they don't have irons and ironing boards for each room. In fact the hotel only has one and if someone else has it then you're stuck. For a business hotel there should be more irons. We got a good deal on this (44% off) which made it good value. The non-discounted rates are a bit steep for the quality of this hotel but I suppose the location makes up for it.

The hotel is just across the street from the main train station. It is perfectly located to visit downtown (20 min walk), the university (20 min walk), and the main park (20 min walk). Premises are modern and very clean. I asked for a quiet room (light sleeper) and had one that really was perfectly silent.

Breakfast buffet is German-style extensive and good. Nice gesture: local transportation pass is included in the hotel fees. Internet (very slow!), too. One can rent bikes, which is also very convenient.

The room, indeed, could have used a newer TV set. Otherwise, the shower was bliss!

Room Tip: get rooms X11 and X12, where X is the floor number. These are silent.

It is so nice to arrive by train and just to have to walk across the street to your hotel. Even though it is so close to train station, you have a peaceful sleep. Breakfast was great but the room is small for the amount of quests. Around 9 o’clock in the morning you have to wait till to be seated. Overall we had a pleasant stay and I would recommend them.

The big advantages of this chain hotel are as many have written here its location just a few steps from the Dresden central station and the practical design of its rooms, which due to clever design seem larger than they are. Ours had obviously just been renovated and made the best possible use of a small hallway with adjoining bath (unfortunately the threadbare towels didn't match the quality of the new bathroom). The smaller separate bedroom had huge windows to let in lots of light.

The friendly front desk personnel immediately gave us dental and shaving packages when they heard that we’d left our one bag on the train. Another nice extra were the free umbrellas for guests to borrow on their way out into drizzly Dresden weather. Since we both have annual train passes, we didn’t need the free transport tickets. It seems from other reviews here that InterCity has at last decided to offer free wifi. We found the extra charge during our stay in August very annoying and simply won’t book hotels without free wifi unless we have vouchers for a free stay.

Beautiful sunny skies and the view from our room on the day of our checking out was much better than the truly dreadful breakfast buffet. No fresh fruit at all, old stale coffee, very fatty sausages but at least very friendly staff in the bright breakfast room with large windows on the ground floor.

Since we used one of the special Deutsche Bahn vouchers for our stay, we can’t complain about the price. But we probably would’ve booked one of the many other options in Dresden had we had to pay the regular price for our room.

These hotels are nearly identical to one another, being right next to the train station and having very high cleanliness standards. We knew what we were getting, exactly. It wasn't quite as spotless as the Berlin Intercity hotel but very close, it is a little older.

A clean hotel opposite the station- very convenient! Also close to the shopping area and bus and trams. We were delighted with the complimentary travel pass. Friendly, helpful reception staff. Pleasant dining room with a comprehensive breakfast.
