My friend and I stayed in the hostel section in a double room. This was a really good location and it was easy to get to the older part of the city. The room and shared bathrooms were quite clean but the entire building was permeated by an odd and perturbing smell, which tarnished the experience. The internet was also not great, and kept kicking me offline. However, contrary to other reviews, we found the staff quite friendly and helpful. A tip, though: bring hand soap with you to the bathroom because there is none provided!

The Cityherberge in Dresden is only a few minutes walk from Dresden's Altstadt, eliminating the delay and expense of public transport. The hotel is spotlessly clean and though the bathrooms are shared, there are plenty of them, and in immaculate condition. The buffet breakfast is quite varied and satisfying (although the filter coffee ran out one morning, and we had to do with instant!). The only complaint is the narrow beds, and no TV in the rooms, but apart from this, it is a perfect place to stay, and at a fair price. The free WiFi is a great perk, and the downstairs lounge is a nice place to relax with a coffee in the evening.

Room Tip: Better to pick a double room rather than a single or a twin - to avoid the narrow beds! But I did sl...

I stayed at the Cityherberge last August and I suggest it: good value for money!
The room I was given was clean and comfortable. I chose a room with shared bathroom and the common bathrooms were very clean.
The location is great: just 5 minutes from the central square and old town, 10 from the river.

It's a bit more than you expecting from the hostel, a bitt less than hotel. But it's clean, nicely furnished, 100% better than it looks from the outside and really close to the old town city centre. Our room was basic, just enough for a couple, it has enough of storage space and own bathroom, but without soap and other things. Only the bed was quite soft and made by two singles. Breakfast was nice and tasty, although the staff were a bit slower than guests.

I stayed at Cityherberge for four nights while attending a scientific conference in Dresden. The organisers had negotiated special rates for conference participants at a couple of hotels, and I chose this option. Even the normal rates would have been very affordable.

The accommodation is located very close to the old city centre and tram and bus lines.

My room was very basic yet clean. There were not so many places to put my stuff. On the other hand, there were lots of electric sockets within very easy reach, which is kind of exceptional for hotel rooms. The fixed coat hangers that did not come off the rail were very annoying. The air in the room was always a bit stale.

My room did not have an ensuite bathroom (some rooms do have). The shared bathrooms were clean, and there was a sufficient number of them, but it was very strange that there was no hand soap in the bathrooms.

I was travelling by motorbike, and I gladly used the free guest parking in the inner courtyard. On the hotel's website, a free welcome beer was promised for motorcyclist guests. Nobody offered any welcome drink to me, even though it was obvious to the receptionist that I arrived by motorbike. In general, the reception staff were not particularly friendly.

The breakfast buffet was OK, but the breakfast room was often quite crowded.

This hostel has also rooms with private bathrooms. Breakfast is in the next building. 15 minutes walk from the cental train station. 15 minutes walk to the museums and river. Comfortable bed. Exellent for short time stay especially if you travel by train. By the way, there is an express bus that goes from Tegel airport in Berlin straight to the central train station in Dresden. Average ticket is 18 euros and 9 euros if purchased by internet. It takes about 3 hours.

It's not a hotel but a hostel. Location is close to the city centre. The hostel is equipped with basic necessity. The room tends to get hot during summer. The breakfast was very basic too. The place is good for stay if one for business purposes in Dresden. But I would suggest to take hotel in the centre of the city. Very Basic place.
