We spent five nights at the Aparthotel Muenzgasse in early May 2013 for a short holiday. We have not stayed in an "aparthotel" before (as opposed to a hotel of bed and breakfast) and found it an ideal way to visit Dresden, We will consider similar organisations on future trips away, especially if the location is as convenient as the Aparthotel Muenzgasse.
The photos on Tripadvisor show that the layout of the different apartments is not the same. Our apartment consisted of a spacious double bedroom / living room with separate kitchen and bathroom. There was plenty of storage in the main room and entrance corridor and safe in the wardrobe to keep valuables.
The kitchen was well equipped. We used it to make breakfast on most days and to prepare lunch to take away but we could easily have prepared full meals if we had wished. There is a bakery for bread close by and supermarkets on the other side of the Altmarkt.
The bathroom was spacious with a bath and shower (though I had to crouch to use the shower as the water ran cold if you held it above head height). There was also a washing machine which we did not use. The apartment was clean and tidy and comfortable. As we stayed more than four days our towels were changed once during our stay.
We only encountered the staff when we checked in (the reception is at No 10 Muenzgasse) and when we left but they were frendly and helpful. We were able to check in for our flight home from a laptop in receeption.
The Aparthotel has an arrangement with a nearby restaurant, the Gasthaus am Neumarkt, where we had a good meal one evening and buffet breakfast on our last day. It would have been possible to book breakfast there each day from the Aparthotel but we decided to prepare our own breakfasts.
The location of the Aparthotel Muenzgasse could not be bettered. It is right in the centre of the historic old town of Dresden. We were in room 403 (entrance in Muenzgasse No 2) with a view of the Frauenkirche from our window. Other appartments might not have had such a good view. The double glazing meant that we were not disturbed my any noise in the square outside. The Muenzgasse is a lively street lined with restaurants and bars outside. We ate in only one of these. We found that there is a huge choice of restaurants of various styles in Dresden and even in areas frequented by the many international tourists they tended to be of a good quality and at a reasonable price (lower than in the UK). Above all the Aparthotel was within easy walking distance of all the places we wanted to go including the Albertinum, the Zwinger, the Semperoper, the Hofkirche and the Frauenkirche. This saved a lot of time and also meant that we could return for a rest in the afternoon before continuing our sightseeing and did not need ot uyse public transport to get around the city.
The tram stop Synagoge is a few minutes walk away and we used it to get to and from the airport and also to go to the main railway station for a couple of trips out of Dresden. Trams into the Neustadt also go from the Theaterplatz which is equally close.
All in all we recommend the Aparthotel Muenzgasse highly for a visit to Dresden.
