Holiday Inn Express Dresden City Centre

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A very central location, just a few minutes walking from the central train station and right next to to the historical center with the main atractions. The room was a simple and not large enough for a family (a couple with 2 children), although clean and with a good bathroom. The breakfast was the standard. Excellent service, specially for the check-in.

We selected this hotel for its perfect location, close to the train station, across from a wonderful mall, and a quick walk to the center. We used points plus cash and were placed on the oddly chosen reward rooms. Hmm, what does this mean? In our case, it meant a tiny spartan room with virtually no amenities. The bed was small and squishy to the point we were awake most of the night. It was not especially clean, either. Many others have noted the poor WiFi but it works fine if you are up in the middle of the night. The breakfast is plain but adequate. The service was fair but we felt we were staying in a much less than standard hotel. I am usually a big fan of HIE, but not this one.

Enjoyed the location of the hotel, we were able to walk everywhere. room worked just fine for us. Breakfast was excellent, tons of meat, cheeses,bread,cereal,fruit,etc. Huge breakfast room so even though there were lots of people,no problem finding a place. What truly surprised and baffled us was the quality of the Wifi, especially as this seemed to be a business oriented hotel. We had to constantly re-login and the service kept dropping. Disappointing but we coped. Extremely pleasant front desk and breakfast room staff

Amazing location. Rooms as per usual standard of this chain, very good and smart. Super shower. Very smart bar area. Right opposite main shopping area. Car park was full when we arrived so we had to park at the shopping centre opposite which was a ten minute walk. Excellent car park and shopping centre though. Great breakfast too. Very quiet on the side, our room was overlooking the back. They got our reservation wrong by putting us in double rooms rather than twin bed rooms but we were lucky in that they sorted that out. Be careful with this, we booked by Amazon and had proof that we had wanted twin bed rooms when the reception tried to blame us. That loses the hotel a star rating hence four. Overall experience excellent.

We visited in June 2017 and spent 3 nights there. It was a very good experience. We were allowed an early check in. The breakfast is also very good and filing. This hotel is centrally located. All the sight seeing places are at walkable distances and also the main train station is just a 10 mins away by foot. I would definetly recomend this hotel and would like to stay there during my next visit to Dresden.

Despite our rewards club status the room on the Club member floor was very small with a tiny, super soft bed . After a fitful night we encountered a super crowded breakfast room . There was no place to sit and trying to get a small plate of fruit and pastries turned into a early morning battle . The front desk was only interested in processing our bill .

This hotel was excellent. Close to all the amenities and attractions of the old town. City mall across the road. Hop on/off 100 meters away. Staff helpful and breakfast was excellent so overall a very pleasant stay.

We booked a room for a family of 4. The room is adequate for 2 people, absolutely no way to accommodate 4! There is no breathing space for 2 adults and 2 children. WiFi works well only in the lobby. The cups in the room were not washed for 2 days - our left-over tea stayed with us. Modern bathroom, very good breakfast. Very good location - walking distance to both city center and the main train/bus station.

Hotel receptionist was friendly & efficient. Quick service even though there were quite a few people to be served. Room was spacious & mordern with fridge and kettle. Beautiful bathroom and lovely strong hot shower. So enjoyed it. Free wifi and fantastic breakfast. Location was right in the middle of shopping malls, restaurants and the main tourist spot - the beautiful 'Zwinger'. Would definitely recommend staying here.

I always stay at Holiday Inns when I get the chance for many reasons and this one was fit the bill! The hotel was clean and the staff were very personable and kind and even offered me and my family places to visit. The breakfast was not to bad either and the staff again was very quick in stocking food. The only downside I have to this hotel was the internet. As a priority club member we were all situated on the top floor and the internet reception was spotty at best. When I asked the front desk they said we needed to be closer to the middle were the signal is best. You would think that IHG would have some of the best internet especially since customers are paying for that service.
