I was very much looking forward to staying at the Hexenhaus and I was not disappointed.
It is very old, very small and exactly what you expect. We ate in the restaurant on both nights that we stayed as it is a bit of a trek out of Dresden and there really is nothing else around. I would recommend that you book if you wish to eat there as it gets busy. The food is the usual German type of fayre which we enjoyed.
The rooms (apart from 3) are not in the hotel and are a 5 minute walk away. They are very new and really nice - spacious, modern and well equipped.
When we were there the weather was awful (heavy snow and -12 degrees) so the walk to the hotel for breakfast and dinner was a bit of a nuisance for my elderly parents but fine for us.
The big drawback is the commute to Dresden. You have to walk to the end of the road catch a bus that goes to the main railway station or change for a tram that also takes you to the main railway station. There is then a good 15 min walk to the Altstadt. Having said that we caught a taxi from the airport which cost €30 and then used taxis where possible except that we were in effect snowed in!
All in all we had a very nice trip and I loved the Hexenhaus but with the weather and my parents it was just a bit too far out of town.
