When looking for a hotel we are always looking for the best value for money. I like staying in affordable yet clean hotels that have simple yet modern interior design. We stayed at a place that ticked all those boxes and exceeded expectation when we went to Dresden, Germany. Our friends found this amazing deal on Booking.com at only € 70 per night, including buffet breakfast for 2 people. It was discounted from around € 100 and required no upfront payment and had free cancellation.

The rooms are small but lovely and most importantly quiet – I assume that it had sound-proofing. We did not get garden rooms, but still had a nice green view. I am not sure if it was upgrade, or the garden view is even much nicer.
Breakfast was the typical eggs, cold cuts, breads, cereals, fruits, etc. There was a good coffee machine, teas and juices. Though it was not fancy and served cafeteria style, we were happy with the wide assortment and great value.
We did not use it but guests are free to use the fitness center which has a sauna. Parking is free and there is a lot of parking slots.
Getting Around Dresden
We purchased from the hotel reception the € 8 Day Ticket which is good for 2 persons. It is valid the entire day of purchase until 4 am of the next day. Find the right Dresden Card for you and your travel companions here. To plan our trips around Dresden we used the DVB Journey Planner.
Good to Know About Dresden
Dresden is the capital of the German federal state of Saxony (Freistaat Sachsen). Located on the Elbe River and is an industrial, governmental and cultural centre, known worldwide for Bruehl’s Terrace and its historic landmarks in the Old Town (Altstadt). – WikiTravel
Dresden is considered to be the Florence on the Elbe and truly I can see why (more pictures to come). If you love architecture, history, art and culture, Dresden is but a 2 hour drive from Berlin. You can also go by bus and train. Read about how to get from Berlin to Dresden here.
Dresden is home to August der Starke (Augustus the Strong) the most famous among the Saxon kings and princes. As Frederick Augustus I, he was the Elector of Saxony and as Augustus II, he was the King ofPoland and Grand Duke of Lithuania. Find out why he was called August the Strong here.
August the Strong’s sponsored the effort that lead to the discovery of the secret of making porcelain. Before this the highly prized porcelain came all the way from China and the secret of how it was made was a closely guarded secret that Europeans tried to uncover for a century. This fine porcelain invented by Germans in Dresden, continues to be produced at the Meissen porcelain factory. It was the very first porcelain company in Europe and this hand-made hard-paste porcelain is stronger and more expensive than soft-paste porcelain.
