I booked a room at the Swissotel Dresden am Schloss without knowing a thing about the city. When I arrived at the station, I was delighted to find that it was located right in the very heart of the old town. If you choose to walk from the station, it's a straight shot down to the hotel that takes about 15-20 minutes. The hotel itself is very pleasant, and my room was nice and spacious. There are two public terminals in the lobby that you can use for free. The main positive is that you are in a stunning setting - when you step outside the hotel, you are only a few minutes from all the sights of the old town: the cathedral, the Schloss, the walls, the museums and the extraordinary Frauenkirche. You can enjoy these monuments and streets early in the morning and as the suns sets. Despite all the tourists marching up and down all day, my room was pretty quiet - then Dresden's old town was mellow the nights I stayed in the city.

Excellent hotel in the historical center

Posted Sep 5, 2014
We greatly enjoyed our five day stay here. Many of the museums and churches of historical interest are within steps from the hotel. So is the Semper Opera. One observation: access to the fitness center required significant additional euros as it was not included in the room rate. On the other the rate we got through Expedia was very reasonable so I am not complaining. Especially since the bike/walking trails along the Elbe river bank offer excellent jogging possibilities if the weather cooperates. All in all excellent value.

Excellent location

Posted Aug 5, 2014
Excellent location, clean and huge room, the only tiny issue was the strange in-room toilet arrangement, would have prefered a toilet, basin and shower all in one private room. Would definately stay again.

Great Hotel Experience in Ideal Old Town Location.

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: 1st class stay
Location: Best parking tip in the area: 3.50 Euro/24hours in the underground parking garage of the Centrum Gallerie directly down Prager Street, a 10min walk.
Immediate vicinity of museums which made it great for returning to hotel to recharge between outings. Hotel staff very helpful. Very nice breakfast as expected.

Lots of room

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Location, cleanliness, and size of room. Blackout drapes too.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Historical sites and Frauenkirche are all within walking distance as are the shops and many restaurants. Had a great meal at the Augustiner Rest.
Our "grand room" with breakfast was huge. We could have danced a polka. Very very good location.

Central Dresden Gem

Posted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
A beautiful modern hotel that blends in nicely with its historic surroundings in central Dresden, the Swissotel exceeded all expectations regarding service and amenities. Our upgraded suite was well worth the expense for all the extras, including bathrobe, slippers, International NY Times at the door, free minibar, and one of the best breakfasts spreads I've ever encountered.
