Immediately upon entering my hotel room at Hotel Am Terrassenufer I saw this:
I went out and took some night photos of Dresden and the next morning I woke up to this:
I know there’s a lot more to a hotel than the view but that’s a pretty good start and you won’t find a view like this in any other hotel in Dresden.
The room was huge, one of the biggest I’ve stayed in for quite some time. The bed was huge too, with two separate doonas which is commonplace in Germany. Wifi was fast but not included in the price of the room which unfortunately is also commonplace in Germany. There is no air conditioner in the rooms. Of course the view of the city skyline is the main attraction and I suggest asking for a room with a view on a high floor when you book.
The bathroom was quite basic with just a shower with a shower curtain but it was spotlessly clean.
The breakfast buffet is served downstairs overlooking the garden. There was plenty to choose from, all kinds of sliced meats, cheese, hot food, cereal, etc. The breakfast staff didn’t speak much English but they did their best to understand me and were very friendly.
Located right on the Elbe River and a 10 minute walk to the Frauenkirche, museums and opera, the Hotel Am Terrassenufer is perfectly situated. If you are arriving by train, the hotel is a short tram ride away from the main train station and the tram stops just in front of the hotel at the New Synagogue tram stop.
The clean large rooms, great location, friendly staff and of course the view make the Hotel Am Terrassenufer a great choice if you’re looking for a hotel in Dresden.
