Greeting you immediately as you get off the ferry across the Elbe, Hotel Elbiente has a relaxed atmosphere. The room was modern, with a great shower for relaxing after a hike up the Bastei or a run along the Elbe. The colour scheme of the room did seem a little less contemporary, but with good wifi and cable tv/radio (all...

This hotel is located in Rathen on the Elbe river bank. There's a walking road climbing easily from the hotel to Bastei park. Rathen is a picturious village. The hotel is very nice and comfortable. The room is very well equipped. We enjoyed every minute in this place. Visiting Dresden is an option. Take a train from Rathen and in...

The hotel is a little difficult to get to - you have to park across the river and take your luggage to the ferry and pay 1.50 euro per person to cross the river to the hotel - but the hotel does give you a free exit ticket to the car park so parking is free. The restaurant was very...

The hotel is well for vacation. It is located along the riverside of Elbe, sharing the beautiful view. The room is reasonably large, though a bit old. Breakfast is excellent, good quality and good variety, even with champagne in one morning. I also had dinner in the restaurant for 2 nights - quite a nice place for friends or couple...

Pleasant hotel on riverside of Elbe. Superior room with balcony and beautiful view, comfortly king size bed, modern design, soundproofed. Small and clean wellness. Restaurant:tasty food with good value for money, only wines are overpriced. For us the best hotel between Dresden and Bad Schandau. Very professional staff. Small mistakes: no WIFI in room, no coffee/tea facilities in room, worse...

Husband and I stayed here for one night in December 2011. We travelled from Dresden by train (25 mins, fantastic scenery). From the train station, it's quick ferry ride across the river. There are many great bush walks in this area (including the popular Bastei walk) and the Elbiente is an ideal base due to its central location. We had...

Very friendly people, nice rooms with view on the river, good restaurant and new renovated swimming pool and spa. The village is very nice and the Elbiente is the first house of the village. Don't miss the Felsenbühne (open air theatre) and the "Bastei" hike (about 1 hour from the hotel).

If you are traveling using a GPS, make sure you set your address for the train station across the river to find the parking lot. We wound up on the wrong side. Room was great, setting beautiful, traveling to Dreseden simple by either train or Steamboat, we used one in each direction. Everything was perfect and the staff was even...

“Rooms I think are all quiet but the rooms on the river side would get a lot of sun so in the summer months even though it cools down those rooms could be quite hot as there is no cooling system - only heating. We opened all our windows just off front and a cooling breeze settles in at night”
