The perfect place during our stay in Dresden. About a 10 minute walk from the Dresden Neustadt train station. Located in a safe area of the Neustadt part of Dresden, off a main boulevard....but within 5 minutes, you are well into great neighborhoods of New Dresden. What is more, it is within 10 minutes of the bridge that you walk... More

I loved staying at City-Oase. It is easy to access (quick walk) from the Dresden Neustadt train station. Enrico the owner is lovely and so helpful. You can tell he adores what he does. He'll share more information about Dresden then you'll ever be able to digest. Each of his rooms is decorated differently. And he & his wife are... More

Pluses-- --Really nice hosts. --Non--touristy area. --Scenic route to the Altstadt, by the Elbe river. Very photo worthy. --Eight minute walk to the Neustadt train station. Maybe 4 minutes to a tram stop. --Beautifully decorated rooms. Ours was the Karl May theme (Cowboys and Indians), a two room suite, with good sized bathroom. --This room was 85 euros. Minuses --...

We arrived here late at night after travelling for over 20 hours. First impressions weren't that great because the area is slightly off the main area and a bit dark and uninviting. However that changes the moment you meet Enrico and experience his warm hospitality and genuine friendliness and helpfulness. And his wife Renate is equally wonderful. Everything you read... More

I stayed at the City-Oase last week and really enjoyed the accommodation. The decor of the room was stunning and it appeared the bathroom was recently renovated. The owner Enrico was very helpful before and during the stay. The accommodation is a 15 min walk to old town (along the Elbe river - very beautiful walk!) and 10-15 min walk... More

We wanted two nights in a hotel close to the central sights with easy parking and City-Oase perfectly met our requirements in terms of access to both the 'new' and 'old' towns. We split our time walking in both parts and the hotel was perfectly located for doing this. The rooms are all 'themed' with their own private bathrooms, if... More

The location of this inn is perfect -- it is five minutes from Dresden's Neustadt train station; a lovely 15-20 minute stroll into the old town through a riverside park with magnificent views; an easy walk in the opposite direction towards the more bohemian nightlife in the Neustadt. Our room, dedicated for the 18th c. writer Schiller, was tastefully decorated,... More

We so enjoyed our visit here. Everything was perfect. The neighborhood will catch you off guard at first but is not only perfectly safe but much in line with other less touristed neighborhoods in Dresdan. Also, it is only a short walk from beautiful Dresdan along the river. Try to spend two full days to fully explore the city. Lastly... More

We loved our three nights at City-Oase. Enrico was a perfect host, speaks English, is friendly, and helpful. The location, although appearing a bit rough at first, is perfectly safe and wonderfully located for a beautiful river walk to the old town, about 15-20 minutes away. We stayed in the immaculately clean and colorful Turkish-themed Yenidze Room. King bed and... More

Do yourself a favor and stay at this B & B! Enrico Ranft and his wife were perfect hosts, helping us with all the attractions and beautiful sights in Dresden. The breakfast was delicious and elegant. Located along the Elbe River just minutes from beautiful historic Dresden. The décor was artistic and inspiring and very comfortable. We will stay here... More
