“Efficient, Friendly and Helpfull”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

We found the hotel very comfortable with efficient, friendly staff, helpful at all times. Reception check-in was quick with no waiting or unnecessary fuss. Rooms are of a good size if not spacious with very comfortable beds. We certainly slept well. Our bathroom was spotlessly clean with plenty of warm fluffy towels. The restaurant is excellent with well prepared mels served by attentive staff. Breakfast is the highlight of my day and I was not disappointed with the wide range of choices and delicious omelettes cooked to order.

Location is also good along the river with walking boulevardes alongside and the tourist sites just a short walk over the bridge. We felt very much at home here and the staff gave the impression that they were actually pleased to see you. We would definitely stay here again.

Dresden is a beautiful city, amazing history & architecture. We stayed at the westin bellevue for three days the location could not be better, just cross the bridge & you are in the city of Dresden. At night the view from the hotel is magical. The hotel itself is elegant, well priced with breakfast that exceeds ones expectation. The Canaletto restaurant is one of the best places to dine food is superb, service is attentive & the hospitality is an experience in itself. We loved our stay.

Loved the hotel and staff. Hated the cost of 17 euros for internet. What the heck is with that? Everyone here is very helpful and attentive. Missed breakfast by 8 minutes. Tried to tell the lady who checked in that we overslept. Flew in the night before. Did not bend the rule for us although I'd thought for 8 minutes, I'd have tried harder to make the customer happy. Small matter though because everyone else is very nice. Conflict information on check out time but again small matter.

The Elb sight is breath-taking (especially by night) ! The staff is always nice, willing to help and efficient. The food is excellent (Canaletto restaurant) and for breakfast, the choice could hardly be wider. The room is spacious and well-designed not to mention the bathroom ! The pool and SPA facilities are really nice and not crowded. The hotel is halfway from Neustadt and Altstadt which is really ideal to discover this wonderful city (either by foot or with public transportation nearby the hotel). We really enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: Rooms with view on the Elb are definitely the nicest.

The Westin Bellevue Dresden hotel employees are excellent. From the hotel reservationist and the wonderful front desk staff to the restaurant employees and housekeepers, every one at the Westin exceeded any expectation I had. These employees displayed warmth, professionalism, and knowledge. This service is what makes the Westin Dresden an exceptionally great hotel.

Upon entering my room, I realized that I had been upgraded from the junior suite I had reserved to an even better room type. My suite was unbelievably nice.

Regardless of however nice the suite was, it was just a room for sleeping. Service is what makes for hotel great. The Westin Bellevue Dresden IS a great hotel.

Although the hotel is located on the opposite of Dresden’s old town the Westin Bellevue is the perfect accommodation in Dresden. It is situated next to Augustus Bridge that brings you in directly to the historic center.
Moreover most rooms face Elbe River, its long promenade and the famous and historic buildings and places. I recommend to sign up for their Starwood Preferred Membership before your stay to get a free upgrade to the rooms with the scenic view.

Approaching the hotel from Große Meisner Straße it might not appear very attractive but this changes as soon you entered the brown shimmering bulky complex. The building frames a beautiful old palace containing a restaurant and atrium, besides you have a direct access to Elbe River Promenade.
In summer (weather permitting) to hotel opens its beer garden that faces Elbe River and Semper Opera. The perfect location to end the day after an extensive sightseeing tour.

In case the weather is not cooperating hotel guests have free access to the pool area in the basement. Since large glass windows you can enjoy frame it the scenic view while you are swimming or relaxing in the loungers. Sauna fans can splurge themselves in one of the different saunas and have the opportunity to cool off at the outdoor patio.

BTW - Third parties like Expedia offer sometimes rates far below the hotel webpage!

We have just returned from a 4-night stay at the Westin Bellevue. We found the hotel extremely comfortable and the staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. We were staying with our 2 young children and found that the hotel claim to making children welcome was absolutely true. The swimming pool and spa were perfectly clean and of a good size and our children enjoyed the smaller pool. The breakfast was the highlight of the children's day with a wide range of options (and more, when we asked). Overall, I would certainly recommend a stay at the Westin Bellevue, with or without children.
