“Business hotel atmosphere, but great location for exploring old town Dresden”
Reviewed June 23, 2009

We stayed two nights at the Dorint Dresden after experiencing sticker shock at the room rates being asked by hotels located in the heart of old Dresden. This hotel could be any Marriott or Hilton in any city on earth. It will not add charming photos or memories to your European vacation experience, but is perfectly nice and comfortable, and is a very easy walk or tram ride to Dresden's tourist sights. We couldn't find a thermostat anywhere in the room, but the windows open in a couple of different configurations, so we were able to get cool air into the room.

Comfortable modern hotel within a 10-minute walk of all the Dresden sights. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Awesome breakfast buffet. Only problems were that there's only one computer in the "business center" and there's only expensive wireless in the rooms, and that the fitness center is pathetically tiny with pretty old equipment and little ventilation. Otherwise it's a good hotel.

It's difficult to be critical about this hotel. Using the Accor Group website we received a very acceptable rate for a room with an extra bed for our granddaughter (€79 per night). The room was ample for our needs and well maintained. The reception staff are all professionally trained and speak perfect English (better than the English people do!).

If you read other comments you might get the wrong impression about some aspects of the hotel. True, there is NO control over the air conditioning BUT, in the same way as modern cars have climate control, the temperature is set to be the best of the worst and the worst of the best. As long as you leave your curtains closed during the day even a room facing South (which ours did!) can be kept cool and throught the night we were not cool but were reasonably comfortable. A bigger problem is that IF your room faces Grunaer Street then you MUST like the sound of trams from 05.00! Better to book early and ask for a room that does not face that street!

All food in the breakfast room, restaurant and bar is first-class, as is the service. The location is just seven minutes walk to the edge of a most beautiful city but the tram goes from outside the hotel if you don't want to walk. Would we go back? Yes, undoubtedly.....and we will.

  • Liked — Excellent personal service
  • Disliked — Trams at 5.00 am!

Hotelroom with minibar.
Little chocolate on the pillow after each cleaning session.
We made the room very dirty and the cleaning lady cleaned it all very well.
Swimming pool is rather small.
Free apples at the reception
Hotel is on walking distance (10 minutes) from the centre.
Parking at the hotel is expensive (15 euros in their own parking basement). In the streets next to the hotel is 3-5 euros a day.
Breakfast is also expensive (also around 15 euros). We went once to the Subway restaurant (usually good, but not in Dresden) and once we took a brunch (very good) in the city centre (also for around 15 euros).
We got a very nice price for the room through Booking.com

The Dorint Dresden is situated a 10 minutes stroll from the old town with it´s famous sights. There is also a tram station right in front which is really convenient. The hotel staff was friendly and quite heplful. I booked a comfort room which was quite spacious and well maintained.The only thing that disappointed me was the "Aqua spa" with its small pool/jacuzzi-combination.
If you prefer lots of restaurants and bars just outside the door you should book one of the other partly more expensive old town hotels.
Nevertheless the Dorint Hotel is a good choice for exploring Dresden on foot or by tram.

This hotel is located just outside the 'main attraction' sites in Dresden. It is a five minute walk to the old section of town which was fairly convenient.

It was very clean and the staff was helpful (for example, they offered umbrellas to you when it was raining outside). They had a great breakfast buffet--something for everyone. I would recommend to plan on having breakfast there.

They seem to have a nice business center (but we didn't use it), a swimming pool and spa, two restaurants that served good food and a smoking room. Overall it was a very nice experience, I would plan on staying there again.

One note, they do have adult channels on the television that can be blocked ahead of time if you wish.
