I was here for three nights and can thoroughly recommend it for a short stay. It has two main selling points. First the location, just a few steps from the Frauenkirche square, which is more or less the heart of the tourist area of Dresden. Just five minutes walk from the main sights - Residenzschloss, Zwinger, Bruhl Terrace and Albertinum. Second the very reasonable pricing - you get a suite of rooms for less than you would pay at a hotel. I had one of the cheaper apartments, which consisted of a decent sized bedroom, large bathroom, small kitchen (no oven or microwave, just a hob) and lovely living area (dining table and chairs, sofa and armchair).
Many reviews mention the noise from the surrounding streets. I must say it was not a problem during my stay - Munzgasse is a bustling street filled with restaurants, but if you close the windows no sound gets through. In any case the bedroom was at the back, overlooking a quiet courtyard.
There are a huge number of restaurants within walking distance, although they are all fairly similar medium-priced places - no outstandingly good ones, no fast food takeaways. And if you are planning on self-catering, the nearest supermarket seems to be at the far end of the Altmarkt shopping centre, about 10-15 minutes walk.
It's about 25 minutes walk from Dresden Hbf, along the main shopping street. If you have luggage I would recommend taking Tram 8 to Theaterplatz - a ticket from the machine costs just 2 euros.
The only two slight drawbacks were: the limited kitchen facilities - OK for a short stay, insufficient for longer; and the breakfast - you have to go across the square to a separate building, and it is somewhat overpriced at 12 euros per day. But these are minor points and overall it is an excellent choice.
