The setting of Burgkeller could not be better. On top of the hill, with amazing views across Meissen town, with a terrace where one can sit under the chestnut trees and enjoy the scenery and the red brick rooftops of the town. It is literally right next to the DOM, the amazing Cathedral and it is part of the wall of this historic area of Meissen.
Having said this, the hotel itself has potential to be one of those amazing luxury boutique hotels, but, I felt that it does not live up to it's 4 star rating. Compared to other 4 star hotels, there is a need here for more improvement.
Maybe I am too critical, but , as soon as I walked in and saw bicycles in the reception small area, I was a little bit surprised. The room was big and bright, but, the carpet was terrible..and I do always notice carpets.
We were then so happy to find the restaurant with the lovely view over the town. We sat by the window feeling very happy, delighted with the classical music in the background. A few minutes later the music was gone and someone's voice could be heard...it was the radio. And looking through the windows I felt like taking the napkin and cleaning the glass myself!! Ok, these are details, but, it is the details that make all the difference. If you are paying for a 3 star hotel then you have different expectations to a 4 star or 5 star hotel!
Somebody should invest money and love so that this beautiful building reaches the potential it has!
