Can anyone recommend a pleasant B&B or small hotel in Dresden, Germany

Would like to stay in the Altstadt, near stops for public transportation (tram or bus) and would like to hear from someone who has actually stayed there.

I'm not saying there isn't one... but the rebuilt Neumarkt section of Dresden appeared to me to be almost all chain hotels. And it's relatively small and traffic-free. Walking towards the Hauptbahnhof through the modern pedestrian shopping area, I saw nothing but chain hotels as well.

You might need to look on the opposite side of the river or out in a further district to find what you're looking for. But if you can go for a nice business class hotel, I can highly recommend the Steinberger de Saxe. You couldn't ask for a better location.

Thank you, the Steigenberger looks great; their website offers a discount for booking three days in advance. Location looks perfect.

The rebuilt section of downtown is mostly chain hotels now but they are all very nice and the location can't be beat. Steigenberger de Saxe is a fine example.

For those wanting something a little more "back door" the Neustadt area is where you will have better luck finding smaller hotels and guest houses.

I stayed at the Steinberger De Saxe,great location and they have underground parking.It is a short walk to a variety of restaurants as you walk toward the waterfront or what they call The Balcony of Europe.

It's not exactly a B&B or small hotel, but I'd highly recommend the InterCity Hotel in Dresden. I was there last September, and found that it was a good choice, for these reasons.....

  • It's in a fantastic location, right across the street from the Dresden Hbf.
  • Being close to the station provides access to some small shops and grocery outlets which are open later in the evenings.
  • There's a Tram stop right across the street (about a one minute walk from the Lobby), so convenient to get anywhere in the city.
  • It's built at the end of a new outdoor shopping area that has an abundance of small cafes, stores, etc., all easily walkable from the hotel.
  • The rooms were modern and comfortable, and unlike many hotels in Europe there were LOTS of power outlets.
  • The staff were exceedingly helpful. For example, I had trouble getting the Wi-Fi to connect on my Netbook. The desk clerk called a tech assist company and they walked me through the procedure on the phone and we had it working normally in a few minutes.
  • They serve a great breakfast! One can definitely fill-up before going out touring.

If / when I return to Dresden, I will defintely stay there again.
