We spent a long weekend here while visiting Dresden for the first time.
We travel quite a lot worldwide and had booked this hotel on its name, location and facilities.
The first impression is "WOW" and the reception is acceptable and friendly. However the room we were given was of average size with only one armchair.
We are used to, in this price category unlimited and not complicated WIFI access, what we got was 15 mins. free and then pay WIFI!! This is definitely not on.
The price of the breakfast at Eur 28 per head is a deterrent and the local snack bars are full in the mornings with hotel residents.
The swimming pool was as cold as Alaska and not very impressive for a Hotel that advertises itself as a spar hotel.
My wife had a massage which she described a "Business like", not that it was not competently carried out but she has had better experience.
The plus points are the location and the Karl May bar.
We enjoyed our stay in Dresden but it was not enhanced by the hotel stay so we must say for the price our experience was average.
