“Cheap place”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Pros:
- Cheaper place to stay and nearby the main attractions in Dresden.Our room was 51 euros per night (We stayed in September 2013).
- No room key required as all rooms had a special code to enter room
- Clean room with a double bed and a bunk bed. Sink is outside the toilet and shower area.
- Room is not big, but was enough for our one night stay
- Free luggage storage area

Opportunities for Improvement:
- Have an early check in if a room is available. The front desk was not friendly and said to come back at the check-in time.
- Breakfast seemed expensive too.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

The hotel room is nice, the location great, BUT - which is a very important thing for me - the advertised "Free Internet" is horrible:
- I wasted more than half an hour because the obligatory login window (where the terms and conditions have to be accepted) did not open, just trying to go online.
- The speed is ridiculously slow. Half an Mbit, often even slower.
There is a reason for that: The hotel tries to sell you a faster internet connection for 6€ / day.

Every cheap hostel for 20$ / night is capable of providing fast and easy to use internet access for free. What's the point in crippling this service in a much more expensive hotel?

Room Tip: Stay away from this location if you rely on internet access.

Dear Mr. Marten S.,

thank you for taking the time to write about us.

We are pleased that you review our hotel good. Nevertheless, we regret that you had the impression that the internet had an inappropriate speed.

How you informed our colleague, we have two W-LAN offer. One is for free, for the purpose to inform themselves on the net or send an e-mail. Or with the paid version, which is capable to download large volumes of data or surfing super fast on the net.

By the way, if you book our business package, you only pay € 2 for it. (9.50 € for the breakfast € 7.50 and high speed internet 2 €)

We would be very pleased if to welcome you again in our house.

By then best greetings from Dresden by the entire team

Of course Ibis Budget is a very simple hotel, but it was all I needed, in the best place of Dresden. Very clean, the recepcionists very helpful and almost all speak english very well. When I went to Prague my bagage was left there without any cost. The breakfast is good and cheaper. Moreover, it is located in Altmarket Gallery, the best shopping in Dresden and the trains are in the hotel door. The localization is wonderful and I visited all the touristic points on foot. If I will return to Dresden I will stay there again.
