After our very average stay in Berlin we were very impressed by this Radisson Blu. The staff were very friendly; rooms are very nicely furnished, almost reminiscent of the castle we'd visited the day before (and the bathroom was huge). Great location with lots of mid-priced food within walking distance; it's about 5-minute taxi ride from the main train station,... More

The Radisson Blue is located in the historic beautifully renovated Gewandhaus at the outskirts of the Inner Old City. Very friendly and accommodating staff, kudos! The place is meticulously maintained, old-world charm and comfort, we had an excellent and comfortable room (especially after complimentary upgrade), the breakfast buffet was excellent, as was the high-speed WiFi with free access to the...

The Gewandhaus has a good position not far from the main square. Slightly old fashioned, though not the worse for that. Very comfortable room, very plush marble bathroom, nice foyer and attentive staff made this an excellent base to explore Dresden from. The breakfast is expensive at 22 euros - we went round the corner to the many cafes in... More

I really did not like this hotel for several reasons. Being there on business, it is important to have a functioning internet service. This hotel's internet kept cutting in and out. The problem was systemic at the hotel and not just localized to me or my computer as several others in the lobby were having the same complaints as me.... More

Very nice hotel in perfect location in the centre of Dresden. Short ways into the city and close to the famous sights of Dresden. Would stay again if I have to go back to Dresden. The staff is very friendly and check in and check out was very convenient.

I often choose Radisson hotels when I travel, because of their consistent quality, the free Wifi and the safes in the rooms. This is particularly the case in Germany, where many shops and restaurants prefer cash and haven't really caught onto free Wifi. The Radisson Blu Gewandhaus Hotel is a renovated older building within walking distance of all the attractions... More

Very nice hotel with excellent service og sweet personal. We were opgraded to Business Class and got a large room with a very nice open view. Our dog was very welcomed, which made us feel even more welcomed! Central, yet quiet location. Whenever in Dresden again, we will definitely stay at this hotel!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Radisson Blu Gewandhaus Hotel is located in the heart of the historic centre of Dresden and just 500 metres from the Elbe River. The capital of Saxony is one of Germany’s most beautiful cities and the hotel lies conveniently close to many of its major attractions such as the Semper Opera House, Zwinger, Bruehl’s Terrace and church of Our Lady. The history of the Gewandhaus can be traced back to 1295, when the cloth hall was first documented. Originally built as a warehouse in 1768 the Gewandhaus was reduced to a burnt-out shell by heavy bombing in 1945, before being rebuilt as a hotel in the sixties. Now Radisson Blu has completed a lavish refurbishment programme. This charming boutique hotel, whose facade has been restored to the original baroque style of Dresden’s famous architect J. F. Knöbel, has 94 double rooms and 3 suites, all furnished in the Biedermeier style, and offering a spacious marble bathroom with airpool bathtub or glass shower. Air-conditioning, safe, minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, radio and cable-TV with movie channel, three telephones, fax and PC sockets are among the first-class facilities. Around the magnificent Atrium our Weber’s Restaurant and bar, Chimney lounge and 5 conference rooms with daylight are located. The exclusive spa area with pool, sauna and gym equals an oasis for relaxation. Non-smoking rooms, special rooms for disabled guests as well as rooms for allergy sufferers can also be booked. Room service is available 24 hours a day. ... more   less
