Very clean and modern. Room and staff very friendly. Being a runner, I would have thought there would have been some exercise equipment or small gym. None! Lucky the weather made it nice to run outside. There is a Fitness First Gym, but I paid good money to stay at this establishment. The Holiday Inn Express in North America have some sort of exercise equipment, why not in Europe. Very disappointing.

Dear Glenn A,

thank you very much for your stay in our Holiday inn Express Dresden City Centre and your positive statement at Tripadvisor.

We are pleased, that everything was to your satisfaction.

We terribly sorry, but a gym is not a standard of the Holiday Inn Express Hotels in Europe.

We wish you and your family Merry Christmas and a happy new year 2013.

Well locate near the old part of town. This hotel is quite new, about 2 years old I think. Rooms and facilities are ok. Breakfast can be a drama as it is very busy in a confined space. They do charge for wifi, not great these days. This is just a base from which to explore the surrounding areas. Plenty of restaurants and bars close by.

We were visiting Dresden for a few nights to attend a conference at the University, and the Holiday Inn Express was recommended as a good place to stay, particularly as it was a very new hotel. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the rail station (through the pedestrian shopping district) and close to the Altmarkt - so, very convenient. There are tram stops nearby, as well as an extremely busy road, but we weren't disturbed by noise during our stay. We had a Priority room on the top floor (even though we didn't book it). Indeed, the rooms are new and freshly decorated. Ours was very clean and comfortable. The only downsides: given that it was effectively an attic room, some of the room space was unusable due to a sloping ceiling (not a big deal). The bigger deal was the typical Holiday Inn Express "double" bed, which is insanely tiny. Honestly, spend a bit more money and get bigger beds - the rooms are certainly big enough to manage.

Breakfast in the morning was very good - the breakfast rooms were heaving at all hours, but the staff kept the tables clear, and there was plenty of fresh bread and other good stuff (though the coffee was just average). In general, the hotel was extremely busy (with lots of tour groups).

Staff were professional without being particularly friendly or welcoming.

Would we stay again? Probably not as a couple - the beds were just too tiny. However, for a work-related trip for a couple of nights, I'd certainly consider staying again - the location is excellent, and the price very very good.

Room Tip: Higher floors are undoubtedly quieter, but you may have a longer wait for an elevator!

As other reviewers have said - the location of this hotel was great. I was actually in town to visit the military museum but wanted to be close to restaurants and other sites at night - and this was perfect for it. The view from my room was the Kreuzkirche and the Altstadt. You could walk to all of the signature old city cites from the hotel. The mall was also very close, and great for picking up little items needed on the trip or for a quick lunch. The nearby restaurants were also great. While my traveling companion and I both speak a decent amount of German, we felt more comfortable speaking English and the staff was always accomodating about this. They also helped us book tickets for the city tour, gave us a map, and helped us figure out the city. This was great - as many other places including museums and restaurants, can't offer much help to English speaking tourists as they tend to speak little. As one of the workers at the hotel put it - thats why you come to a hotel first!

We never had trouble getting towels. Breakfast seemed to get busy later in the morning, but we were always up early and often were the only ones there. They offer breads, honey, jams, yogurt, meats, cheeses, cereal and a few other odds and ends. As well as juice, coffee, water, and milk.

The stop for the city tour and the tram are right outside of the city. The Hbf is less than a mile away and easy walking distance or a quick cab ride away.

The showers were great and roomy. There isn't however very much space in the "closet" it can only accommodate a few pieces of clothing and not much else. Could have used a little more surface space as well for work/unpacking.

Overall - great hotel, and a great price.

This property is ideally located in the center of town. It is in the middle of the shopping district with a large department store across the street and a large indoor mall about 100 yards distant. The Altmarkt is also in the vicinity.

The staff was friendly and the rooms are a bit larger than the traditional European Holiday Inn Express rooms. The shower was terrific by European standards. The rooms are sound proofed and although there was a large church nearby, we did not hear the bells chime.

The breakfast was the usual good Express fair. The only drawback is that it fills up with tour bus patrons that sit at the tables sipping coffee and tea while people are waiting to sit down and enjoy their breakfast. This all clears up by about 9:15 am.

Although the hotel claims it has a garage with limited parking spots, I couldn’t find it. However, there is a large 24-hour public parking lot across the street that is very inexpensive which we used with no problems.

Air conditioning worked very well. There is free internet access in room for Platinum Priority Club Members.

We would give the hotel a 5 star rating and definitely will return. We already have a reservation this December when we visit Dresden’s Christmas Markets.

This hotel is perfectly located very close to the old town but at the same time in front of a huge, modern mall. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable, and everything is as I'm expecting when staying at Holiday Inn. A satisfying breakfast buffet is included in the price. Staff is professional and helpful. The only negative remark I have is for the underground garage, too small for such a big hotel and which requires a good luck to find a place.

Wonderful bargain, with buffet breakfast included! Definitely get your money's worth here - will definitely return!!!
