“Free internet slow. Transport pass of limited use.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel has unfortunately lost marks from me due to the ‘free’ internet advertised when booking being extremely disappointing. It was so slow that I had to wait to just downloading text based e-mails. They have faster connections available, but you need to pay extra for those.

Had the internet been both free and reliable then my score would be better as the hotel is modern, comfortable and the room was clean and well equipped.

They did provide a free transport pass for Dresden; however this was only the central zone, which is of limited value if you want to visit anything that is not right in the centre – it does not even cover the entire tram network.

The hotel is right outside the main station and there is a tram stop on the street in front. I choose to buy breakfast from the station each morning as this was much cheaper than including breakfast at the hotel and you are really spoilt for choice at the station.

All the reception staff spoke English which is always a bonus.

It is very clean and modern place in great location. We loved our room and the bed was super comfy. The complimentary transport ticket is a nice surprise.
I would give it a 5 stars if the parking was free but it is rediculusly expensive. We parked on the street right by the hotel despite the advice from the receptionist and it was free.

Our stay was average. We asked for a high floor and got the 1st floor. We said we were on our honeymoon and got given a twin room. We were told on check in that breakfast was included only to find (while eating our breakfast) that - surprise - there had been a "mistake" and we had to pay €30 instead. Queried it and were told there was nothing that could be done so rather than cause a scene in the breakfast room we just paid. The saving grace for this place was location - right across from the main station and next to the trams.

Stayed for one night on business trip. Hotel was very clean, friendly staff and a very nice food in the restaurant. Location is right opposite the train station so if you need to get connections to anywhere it is very convenient. Plus the free travel pass with the room was very good value in itself. I would stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2015

We were staying in the InterCityHotel in January 2015 on a day trip to Dresden. The hotel is well located right in front of the main railway station (Dresden Hauptbahnhof), From there you can make it to the main Tourist attraction in 15 min walking. The rooms are clean and functional. The staff was very friendly and has offers some extra which we liked very much. They gave us free public transportation ticket so we could us the tram and the bus to do our site seeing, they offered a discount at the parking lot attached the the rail station and free WIFI.

We would stay there again.

This is a great hotel, right at the railway station. The rooms are clean and spacious with all the trimmings. The free wifi is slow but it works. Faster wifi is available for a fee. The staff are helpful and proactive. I was offered a free city map and coffee before I had the chance to ask. The discounted offers in the off season make it great value.

Room Tip: My room, 312, was a corner room with big windows on two sides making it feel light and airy. It also...
