This is certainly one of the best Holiday Inns I have stayed in! Location-
20 mins walk from Dresden central Station Hbf along quiet streets.. or 7 mins by taxi.. I was going to stay at the Holiday
Inn express near central station but it was on a very busy street and very noisy..
this is a 3 story hotel which blends into the quiet street on which it is located.. though there is an Aldi and Lidl nearby within 200m.. very quiet area with almost no passing traffic..
The Hotel is smaller than most Holiday Inns and this adds to the intimate character of the Hotel.
upon entering the lobby..it has a very 'boutique' style.. bright, warm, cosy and welcoming.. It has a Large Lounge area with bar, Restaurant and business area.. plus 2 TV areas...one public and one by the Bar which was quiet and discreet..
Reception. efficient, friendly staff.. very organised and quick check in..
Room: I was offered an Executive upgrade which was a big room.. (bigger than most Intercontinental rooms.). well designed and decorated.. modern and contemporary.. more in the style of the other IHG chain.. Indigo at a fraction of the price..
Big firm King bed with 2 quilts and 2 soft and 2 hard pillows.. nice art with large abstract mural of Dresden as a feature..
2 floor to ceiling windows which open to either a balcony or walkway to the garden.
good work desk and powerpoints, lamps etc. and flatscreen TV in special back lit wall unit. and fast wifi for duration of your stay..
Amenities include. tea-coffee, safe good fast air con and complimentary mini bar with a selection of beer, soft drinks and juices.. also starbucks chocolate and still and sparkling water...
room was bright and spotless..
Bathroom.. power shower.. all amenities incl towels, gowns and slippers... sleep quality excellent as no ambient sound..
Overall a very good stay for my 2 nights.. Check out was again very efficient and the staff were more than friendly both day reception and on night duty. Definitely a Hotel to return to when I have more time to explore the Beautiful City of Dresden.. (30mins walk or 10 mins by bus from hotel) [Less]
