0.17km from Wir Raum CafeAbsolutely fabulous hotel. Our room was spacious, and rather sumptuous—it was quite romantic, as advertised. It was also very quiet, even though it was on a corner of the hotel, overlooking two streets. This is a tranquil corner of the “new town,” although the area is full of galleries and a number of good restaurants not far away. The AC was great (it was 98 degrees one day, so we really appreciated it). We stayed four nights, and the hotel was so comfortable it felt like home. The staff was extraordinarily helpful and friendly. They helped us figure out the tram routes and advised us on the most economical way to buy tickets, which enabled us to go to some terrific restaurants outside of the center. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel—there are several good cafés five minutes away. The location was perfect, if you like to locate slightly outside the tourist scrum. It was about a twenty minute walk across the bridge to the old town, which would have been a jumpy place to stay, with lots of mediocre restaurants and cafés and hoards of tourists. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Dresden! If you get a chance, I’d particularly recommend Restaurant Stresa. Much more reasonably priced than Caroussel, and if it isn’t as plush it nevertheless has an innovative chef who’s going to be a star. The setting is sleek and relaxed, too—especially if the weather’s nice and you can sit outside.
