“Good location for a visit to the Bauhaus”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Stayed 3 nights in August whilst visiting the Bauhaus. We did not have breakfast or eat in the hotel as there is a bakery right opposite the hotel where we ate every morning (take-away and tables inside and outside the bakery). The room and bathroom were clean and had what I would consider standard basic hotel facilities, although a little dated. As it was very warm weather when we visited it was a downside that there was no air-conditioning in the room. We were able to open the room windows but ran the gauntlet of mosquitos as a consequence.
Parking is available behind a barrier which is a bonus, with a daily fee.

They only reason we stayed in Dessau was to visit family. I would say that that this Hotel is the best attraction in Germany. There is not much to do in Dessau.
Considering the location on the hotel, all staff spoke reasonable english. The rooms were clean and tidy and were fairly modern.
The heater does take some time to warm up. Internet is slow & expensive.
Overall very good!

The hotel itself was okay, clean but a bit dated. No aircon in the room which probably isn't a regular concern but during our stay it was too hot and we couldn't open the windows due to the mosquitos. The staff stood out as some of the most miserable people I've ever come across in hotels. Their English was good but they were very dismissive almost to the point of being aggressive. All communication and forced niceties on their part appeared through gritted teeth. We felt quite uncomfortable when checking in and out. The staff did seem a bit more friendly with the older guests and it may have been down to some underlying distain for having to provide a service for a younger couple as we are. They appeared to have decided that they 'didn't like the look of us' from the start and were rude throughout. Hugely underwhelmed by the whole process, wouldn't stay again. PLEASE CHEER UP!

Stayed here during a trip to see the Bauhaus. Hotel is fantastic, clean modern rooms. The front desk had excellent english and it had free off street parking. There are plenty of good restaurants and bars within walking distance. Breakfast was expansive and fantastic (bacon wrapped asparagus !) but was expensive.

Clean hotel close to lots of restaurants. Rate included breakfast which was quite good, extensive buffet with hot food. Internet in the room was steep, free in the lobby, but extremely slow. Room was clean, rooftop sauna was in good shape although closed for the 2nd and 3rd day I was there for some reason. All in all a great hotel, had stayed at the much more expensive hotel in Dessau previously and it is not any bette for the price.

Room Tip: Free wifi in the lobby if you ask for a login

If you find yourself in Dessau, this is a decent place to spend a night or two. There is not much to see in Dessau other than the Bauhaus, but this hotel is centrally located near the town hall and plaza and it's clean & relatively quiet.

NH Dessau is a basic corporate chain hotel, with typical amenities such as room service (limited menu), laundry, conference facilities, minibar, parking and internet. The room was cleanly decorated and the bathroom was nice.

At 74 Euro per night for a double, the price was pretty good for what you get. But all the extras (and they charge for everything!) are very expensive. Parking costs 8 Euro per day, internet is 10 Euro per hour, laundering your t-shirt will cost you 4 Euro, etc. etc.

We especially liked the green roof and the way they named their conference rooms after Bauhaus architects.

  • Liked — Short walk to restaurants, good value
  • Disliked — extra charge for internet & parking
