We wanted to visit Dresden because we had read about it's painful reconstruction after WWII, which lasted for many decades, and warranted it's been named a UNESCO World Site. We were not disappointed. Just seeing the Frauenkirche (reconstruction finished in 2005) is worth the visit! The entire "altstadt" (old city) is an attraction in itself, with all the magnificent buildings, outdoor cafes, horse drawn carriage rides, as well as the modern tram, and stores. The hotel is within a reasonable walking distance of the Elbe river. There is a road near the river where people walk and ride bicycles, and from there you can see the buildings on the other side of the river. Crossing the bridge on the left, takes you into the heart of the old city. Do take comfortable shoes to walk as most of the roads and plazas there are with old style pavers, which add to the ambiance. Dresden is a city with much to offer the visitor, and not just in the old city. There are many other beautiful places to visit. I recommend purchasing one of the small guides, which have a lot of information about the city and it's surrounding attractions.

"Nice hotel in good location, but parking's limited"
I arrived (by car) late in the evening, and couldn't find a free parking space in the hotel's parking lot. Instead, the staff directed me to a commercial parking space in an office nearby, knowing that the office staff wouldn't be needing the space the next morning (Sunday). But if I hadn't arrived on a Saturday (or Friday) evening, I might have been SOL.
Apart from this, the hotel was comfortable, and only about 1km from the Dresden Altstadt (old town). It's also very close to the Dresden main railway station.
