There are three Ibis Hotels in a row as you make your way from the train station to the tourist sites. I stayed in this one, the middle one--luck of the draw.
I was very disappointed in Dresden and in the Ibis in particular. I spend a month each year Eurailing around Europe. In room, Wi-Fi has become more or less standard. But the Ibis did not have it. They only had "computer access" in the lobby. So, I took my iPad to the lobby counter and asked how I would get access. We filled out two different forms in triplicate. I assured the clerk that I was not buying the hotel, just needed access. After about ten minutes of forms to fill out and sign, I was given an access code to use. I sat down and started trying to access the wi fi. The clerk began gesticulating and speaking loudly. Turns out that what I had been granted access to was to use the computer that they have set up in the lobby. Not to use my own computer--heaven forbid. So I went to the Starbucks across the street.
My overall experience in Dresden was about like that. It seems to be stuck in its eastern block ways. I have been to Prague, Krakow, Budapest, and while they certainly are not as prosperous as the east (actually Prague may well be) the difference been east and west is almost invisible. Not so in Dresden. You can palpably feel the eastern block influence in the people.
