“Good choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is my favorite hotel in Dresden and stayed here a few times.
Also tried Steingerburger and NH hotel.

The hotel is classic style with a big atrium in the middle. The standard rooms are not so spacious but and are fine. There are a few standard rooms with a blancony to the atrium which is really special.
The rooms also has a big whirpool and the beds are much softer than Steingerburger.

Business rooms are bigger with a sofa, I'd recomended this if you are more than 1 staying.

Breakfast is superb, especially if you are from scandinavia.
I find the the same restaurant a bit pricy for lunch and dinner and I never seen it been very crouded either. There are plenty of restaurants in the area to choose from.

The hotel also have a very nice pool (which I havent seen in other hotels in the city center) and a sauna.
The gym is not good, just a few sqm with sparse and old equipment.

The hotel is located in the city center but it is not ditecly at the Fraunkirche, just a few min of walk.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I stayed in this hotel with four members of my family in the beginning of january. The location, very close to the Albertinum, to several churches and plazas, was superb for what we were looking for, which was exploring the old town, visiting museums, and going to the Semper Opera. Since our visit was in the first days of January the rooms were a bargain (under 90Euro each).

The rooms were ample, with refined decoration, and all necessary amenities, including hydro-massage bathtubs. Also, the hotel`s pool was a very enjoyable treat; small but clean and with an appropriate temperature and good changing rooms with showers and lockers.

The staff was very friendly. Only quandaries would be an overpriced breakfast (22 euro is excessive regardless of the quality) and somewhat elevated parking fees. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dresden.

The radisson is situated in the old town close to Pirnaischer square, a central tram exchange. It offers spacious rooms, the view is not that stunning but some bathrooms offer a jacuzzi.
The breakfast is superb including a wide range of dishes, the staff is welcoming and friendly as you would expect.
Have not had time to swim but will do so when I return...the Radisson is a recommendation for business and leisure travellers alike.

Stayed here in December 2012 when visiting a friend and the Christmas markets. Superb location very close to rail station and the main tourist locations, Frauenkirche, Semper Oper and Alt Stadt.
Would recommend to anyone visiting Dresden.
Hotel is top quality and Webers restaurant is very good. The gym and swimming pool are lo good selling points. This hotel deserves to be higher than 40 on Tripadvisor.

The hotel has the perfect location in Dresden , just a stone trown from the Frauenkirche , the Altmarkt and all the beautiful sights of this Baroque Juwel Town , but in a quiet corner that allows you some peace and quiet at nite. The ambience and furniture are good old classic , very clean and well mainteined , helpful and friendly staff. My room in these early days of december was 309 , a business one that I booked trough the hotel website for a really bargain price. About 30sqm, with a Jacuzzi , a Nespresso machine , king-size bed, sofa, armchair , big desk, home-movies ....all included ....and on the nite of the 5th San Niclaus came by and hanged a socks full of candy at the handle of my doors .... and the others too.... It was a lovely touch for the festive season ....never happen to me anywhere else ....and I travel alot ! ....A word about the breakfast, mine was included in the charge, big buffet , plenty of choice good quality and the ever present friendly staff . I definitely coming back to Dresden and make sure to book a room here again...becase, after all they have a pool too and I haven't had the time to enjoy that ....
