Palatial accommodation in great location

Posted 12-Oct-2017
Pros: Beautiful, close to the key places to visit and very comfortable. Good dining options.
Cons: Teabags as well as coffee in the room.
Location: The view from our windows was stunning. The Zwinger is across the street on one side and the Residenze Schloss on the other. Everything is walkable.
After arriving in Dresden by train it was bliss to check into a beautiful room, make a nice coffee in the machine provided and sink into a pair of very comfortable big armchairs to drink it. Our beds were exceptionally comfortable and the stylish bathroom provided both a bath and a separate shower. Our room was on a corner opposite the Zwinger and the Green Vault with superb views of the platz opposite. We were able to walk down to the reconstructed Cathedral of St Mary and shop or visit the many restaurants there while observing the many horse drawn carriages offering tours. We visited the three museums in the Zwinger and each was brilliant. August the Strong must be one of the greatest collectors in history. His astronomical instruments were the finest and most beautiful creations at the forefront of science in the fifteenth century, his ceramics from China and Japan in the same century incredibly beautiful and there are thousands of them and his art collection includes Rembrants, Reubens, Velasquez and other masters as well as a whole room of Canalettos. The Residenz Schloss across the street displays the treasures of the Green Vault artfully reassembled after it was bombed during WWII. We enjoyed the food at the hotel bistro and the pub which is also part of the huge building. The latter attracted many locals and had a great atmosphere. Breakfast was served in one of the huge restaurants and offered every imaginable option but was pricey. We loved our stay here.

It's like sleeping at the Louvre

Posted 15-Sep-2017
Pros: The indoor pool is great and big enough to swim properly. I went in the afternoon and had the whole pool area to myself !
Kempinski got everything right here ! The building that houses the hotel is a monument in itself, yet the rooms have all the modern equipment you could hope for, including an efficient and quiet air conditionning system. The location is as central as it gets, in the old town and only steps away from all the tourist attractions, restaurants and shops. The "hop-on-hop-off" tourist bus stops directly in front of the hotel. I took the very convenient train from the airport to the main station (2.30 euros), which is a 15 minutes walk to the hotel.

Beautiful hotel by old town

Posted 06-Sep-2017
Pros: The location and majestic looks.
Cons: Nothing can be improved.
Location: Wonderful location. The music hall housing the Dresden Philharmonic is a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
The hotel is within walking distance from all the historicl sights of the old town pedestrian zone. The hotel looks like a castle, and has a beautiful swimming pool.

Fantastic hotel which goes the extra mile to look after guests. Great location in a very walkable city, plus just a ten minute walk to the mitte station which takes you straight to the airport. Upgraded to a superior room for free on arrival which was excellent. Would definitely stay here again!
