The capital of Saxony, had almost one million inhabitants before the war. Today, although Dresde is certainly thriving, it has roughly 600,000 and its interest lies on its stunning and comprehensive rehabilitation of its beautiful old town.
Ibis Hotels have usually huge advantages. They are incredibly cheap, and fine for a traveller on a budget without having to stay in a shabby place. We are able find an Ibis in every corner of the planet.
Starting at 39 euros, the Dresden Ibis Budget is next to Postplatz, at about 200 meters from the Altsmarkt, at the heart of the city. You will be able to see the gleaming top of the Frauen kirche, if you have a room overlooking the main street.
It is the perfect place not only for the price, but because it’s next to a busy, transportation hub where most tram lines and buses pass by.
It’s also integrated in the largest commercial center of Dresde (perfect because there’s a vast food court in the basement). Two neighbouring take away cafés are great for inexpensive breakfast. The Ibis Budget hotel, despite its name offers cheap accommodation with a decent amount of quality. Recently built, it has superb facilities, the traditional IBIS quality matreasses and bright rooms, beautifully designed.
There’s a integrated shower and vanity in the room, flat screen with lots of channels. A powerful complementary Wi-Fi connection is also offered. There’s a lobby with vending machines; selling soft and hot drinks, fast food, and a minimalist lounge where a breakfast buffet is served. Beware. It’s a bit pricey.
No doubt it’s the perfect choice for an overnight, or even a longer stay. The staff was especially friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate coming back.
