“Clean place to stay in convenient location”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

This is probably the best hotel I stayed in for business in the last 5 years. Fot only EUR 75 I got decent size room, with very modern design and clean. Price included continental breakfast. English breakfast was not available. Internet access cost extra five euro but was very fast and reliable.

Location wise one cannot find better place. It is just next to the old town.

We arrived by train and walked to the hotel -- there's a pedestrian street that's easy to negotiate -- about 1000 meters from the station to the hotel. Reception was very good and helpful. Rooms are very clean, medium to large by European standards, with a well-equipped toilet with shower. Bathroom has a really nice feature -- a blue-light nightlight. English language TV is CNN International, CNBC (boring), and BBC World News. Breakfast was busy but there are lots of places to sit - selections are very European so American guests need to adapt a bit. Many bread choices (gluten free, too), cereal, fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, a wonderful jam selection, peanut butter, honey, cold cuts, cheese slices (gouda and edam), and a machine for cappucino & lattes, plus regular coffee. All of the tourist attractions are within an easy 10-minute walk -- Starbucks is 5 minutes away. Non-smoking hotel! Can't miss with this choice.

Pretty typical H.I. Express. Small rooms but modern and clean bathroom. Nice roomy shower. Location is not far from the old part of town and the river. Parking is available in the shopping center across the street for 8 Euros. Breakfast was a bit disappointing. Not much selection but certainly adequate.

Holiday Inn Express is efficient, comfortable, and the staff is exceptionally friendly and polite. The location is a short walk from the train station where the money change kiosk is and a short walk to the riverside historic sights. It's surrounded by restaurants. If you want to sleep with the windows open, choose the back rooms. If you are a couple, they usually give a choice of one double bed or two in your room. Take two. Then, you'll have someplace to put your second suitcase and there will probably be two towel bars in the bathroom instead of just one. It seems the one bed rooms are for one person. The breakfast buffet is very good and the atmosphere is casual and convivial. The decor is modern. The downside is that it could be anywhere in the world, but that's true of all the hotels we've seen in Dresden.

Room Tip: If you want your windows open at night, choose a room at the back of the hotel.

All rooms are equipped for two people, so all rooms have towels for two person. The standard size for a double bed in Holiday Inn Express in Germany are 1,40 m. But all guests are allowed to choose between double or twin bed rooms.

We would be pleased to welcoming you again as our guest in the nearest future.

We stayed here overnight in January and were very happy with the facilities , especially considering the price. We arrived early having found the hotel quite easily even though we were travelling by car so we could not access the room but the staff were very friendly and put our luggage in their secure room until checkin time. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the city centre and there is a large inexpensive car park opposite.Breakfast was included and was good.All in all a pleasant stay.

We stayed in Dresden in January (have been lazy about reviewing all the places we have been); it was a good price, good location, good value. The interior is clean & modern - so very nice. The location is a 10 minute straight walk from main train station, easy & free. 5 minute walk to Frauenkirche, & another 5minutes to the river. Tops 10- 15 minutes to all the sights right in downtown. The breakfast was normal for Europe & fine. They even had GF bread - although like most packaged GF bread is awful, but I give them an A for effort. Front desk staff was polite. If we come back, i would definitely stay here again.

This is a well designed, modern hotel on the fringe of the old city centre in Dresden. It has standard HI Express rooms, with excellent bathrooms, coffee making facilities, and an in-room safe. A high standard of room cleaning and refurbishment is maintained. The whole building gives an air of up-to-date luxury.

Rooms at the rear of the hotel are probably quieter, but there is the nearby Kreuzkirche, with a clocktower which chimes the quarter hour throughout day and night. Effective double glazing is provided, but even in snowy weather, we found the need to open windows to cool the room, and so suffered some night disturbance.

There is an excellent included buffet breakfast with a wide range of fruits, juices, cereals, meats, cheeses, breads and pastries. This provides a good start to the day for those who like a hearty breakfast.

The hotel is well located for sightseeing, with all the attractions of the Old City within easy walking distance. If arriving by train, the hotel is an easy half mile walk from the central station via a pedestrian shopping area. Dresden’s largest department store is directly across the road and there are two food supermarkets in the Gallerie Altmarkt two minutes away. Numerous restaurants are nearby as well as food stalls in the indoor shopping centres.

Staff at the hotel reception are mostly helpful and friendly. One minor criticism. Despite booking and prepaying for our room via hotels.com, and being a member of HI priority club, we were required at check-in to leave a deposit of 50 euro. It was not made clear why this was needed, but the receptionist refused to give us our keys until a credit card was produced and 50 euro authorised. We hope that this amount will not be debited from our account! A better explanation is needed as to why this is required.

However, overall this is a very good hotel and recommended for a short stay in
Dresden.
