“Excellent location and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Decided to try this hotel chain and wasn't disappointed, they are very well designed, efficient and compact rooms. The hotel is very close to all attractions, many restaurants and lots of shopping right there next door. Ample parking under the park plaza, very safe and modern location. This is the place to stay at - not luxurious but very practical. You'll have to get used to having the shower and bathroom sink right there next to your bed, but it really works, they save a lot of space by doing it this way. Breakfast and Wi-Fi go together, if you but breakfast you'll get free Wi-Fi which is good, works ok.

Room Tip: this is a huge hotel, two buildings joined together, all rooms look alike

The price seemed unbelievable -- only €45 per night for a room in the absolute center of Dresden. Then we saw the room and understood. It's very small. Like really, really, small. There was a double bed, with a bunk bed on top. In the corner there was a small shower stall, next to it a stand with a sink and mirror. The toilet was thankfully in a closed off section next to the main door.

I have to say, my first reaction was not good. But it was actually ok. When you are in bed, you don't notice the rest of the room, and it wasn't too difficult to manage the toilet/sink/shower business. It wasn't a great room, but it was good quality for the money.

As average as the room was, the location of the hotel is PERFECT. No need to have breakfast at the hotel, right next to it there are so many cafes and restaurants you can have breakfast there. The Frauenkirche is barely a five minute walk from the hotel.

Oh, and the service! The reception was manned first by a very friendly, helpful and funny lady, and then the following morning by an equally affable gentleman. Very helpful with advice on parking, shopping, sights, etc. Excellent!

I would stay there again.

A minimalist (but not utilitarian), well designed room, a stone's throw from all the Dresden sights at only 45 euro for a couple. We ate breakfast at one of the many cafes in the Altmarkt Galerie next door. Can recommend 'Aha' in Kreuzstrasse for fresh home-made, organic non-Germanic food.

You can't beat the location. The hotel is right in the city center, inside a large shopping mall. All sights are within easy walking distance. The rooms are typical Etap-style. Breakfast is good as well and the service at the reception excellent. Plenty of parking space around. Wifi is free and working well. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main street could hear some noise from the cobblestone read.

Good budget hotel, newly refurbished. Good location, great breakfast. Good service at the reception. Available parking nearby with enough spaces.
Cleaning services could be better. Otherwise I can recommend this hotel for a short term stay.

The hotel sits inside a shopping mall. Use the entrance (exclusive door) facing north.
Passcode as door key, easy to check in and out (no check-out actually).
Staff are nice and helpful.
There is only one computer for public use, so be prepared to queue up if you forget to bring your own wifi device! (Wifi is free)
The room is pretty small but for solo traveller it's enough.
Good value!
