Recent guest reviews

The hotel is located perfectly right next to the old town and is only a 15 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof. I found most of the hotels in Dresden were reasonably priced so I decided to treat myself to a nice hotel for a couple of nights. This hotel definitely met my expectations with the modern and clean rooms with a wonderful view from the back rooms overlooking one of the Dresden churches. The breakfast included in the price is also an added bonus and the breakfast was of a really good standard with plenty of choice to choose from. The staff are friendly and I would definitely stay here again.

Clean rooms, perfect location, kind and helpful staff, great breakfast. We requested the breakfast to be prepared 30 minutes earlier than when it is scheduled to (06:00 am instead of 06:30 am) because of an important cooperative operation we had with the German Military Air Force and the staff positively answered to our request. Even though we informed them late at night, they had the breakfast ready at 06:00 am. I believe no other hotel would have agreed to help us this way. I also suggest to rent some bicycles that the hotel provides. If i visit Dresden again, i know where i'll have a convenient and happy staying. Great job Holiday Inn Express!!!

I stayed in this hotel during a business trip together with some colleagues. The hotel is modern, with minimalistic style and amazingly clean. I have to point our how helpful the staff was on the evening of the 28th of January . My colleagues and me (a total of 9 people) was necessary to wake up very early nex morning and we asked for an earlier than usual breakfast. I did not expect our request to be accepted but it was! The staff made arrangements to help us, although I could see in their eyes that what we asked was clearly difficult to do. I cannot thank them enough for the favor. It shows clearly that the hotel staff is dedicated to the help and the service of the guests. One important issue: the wifi internet was extremely slow! This is definately a point for improvement. The wifi is the reason that I am reluctant to give five stars, but I will! It is very rare to find such helpful receptionists in big hotels with a lot of guests.

The hotel is very good choice as for a long stay and for a short. The rooms are clean and good equiped. The bathroom is very big and comfortable as for 3* express hotel. Breakfast have all that you need, and the big plus that on weekends they extend time till 11-30.We had 2 rooms on the 6th floor overlooking the squre with church - marvelous view:) The only minus is that they do not provide slippers.

My husband and I spent several nights at the Holiday Inn while we were in Dresden to visit the Christmas Markets. Great service- very friendly staff. Breakfast (included with our stay) was good. Centrally located. We would stay there again.

Great location. Tidy clean rooms. Queues very long at check in but staff very helpful indeed. Breakfast was standard and not so special. Near to trams and 5 mins tomain station and 1 min to historical centre.

We love visiting Christmas markets in different cities each year and our choice this year was Dresden. The hotel is located very strategically, very close distance from the Dresdner Striezelmarkt and the Frauenkirche where there was another Christmas market. At the opposite of the hotel it was the shopping streets and another Christmas market, and just walking distance from the main station. The sightseeing double decker bus is just in front of the hotel. Breakfast was good and plentiful, however there wasn't any warm stuffs like scrambled eggs or sausages etc besides the boiled eggs, therefore I have it 4 stars instead of 5. We were in room 613 which has a great view (see picture attached). The room was a bit small but it served its purpose. We were almost out the whole day anyway.

First time visit to Dresden and I used TA to find a centrally located hotel for 1 night. This hotel was very close to the main train station, easily walked in December with pull luggage. Very close to Altmarkt Christmas Market and others. Very easy walk with lots of shopping, pubs and restaurants along the way. Great location for many of the main sites, too. We were 4 adults so based on the photos posted and description, I booked 2 rooms, each with 2 twin beds. Was offered French double but twins seemed more reliable. The room was comfortably sized. Modern bathroom with excellent shower. TV, electric kettle, coffee and tea. Wi-Fi was terrible. Very quiet room. First floor so we used the very clean stairs to the lobby. Large lobby with seating. Breakfast included - cereal, breads, ham, salami, cheeses.

i spend 3 days here room was clean.this hotel is in the center so just in 2-3 min walk anybody can reach to the shopping mall or old town.which is the plus point of this hotel😀.but i was big disappointed 😞with the breakfast 🥐🥩which was offerd by the hotel.for veggies🥦 there are not so much collegue was a veggi so he was disappointed too.overall this hotel is nice if you just want to be in the center.If you spend sunday in Dresden then be aware that all the shopes & malls are closed on Sunday😒.

I would like to recommend you this hotel, due to the low price, nice looking and friendly stuff. The room was small, but clean and modern...I have got just 2 bad things, first very very bad wifi connection and very pure breakfast. This type of hotel, need to have better breakfast then just only basic morning thinks. If you spent time in Dresden, just let it book.
