The best Dresden cheap hotels
Bed and Breakfast am Schillerplatz
This incredibly cute B&B combines a traditional place to stay with mod cons and a great location. Right next to Blaues Wunder (or Blue Wonder Bridge) this is a brilliant place to spend the night if you want to be immersed in Dresden’s thriving culture. A local market takes place on its doorstep most Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Motel One Dresden - Palaisplatz
Business-like but with incredibly cheap rates, Motel One provides an affordable place to stay without visitors having to forgo a little bit of luxury. There’s a good selection of food at breakfast time and a decent bar to relax in after a busy day sightseeing. Design is quirky yet functional and the location is spot-on for good transport links.
ibis budget Dresden City
Plonked in the heart of the city, this branch of Ibis offers up comfort and affordability without compromising on location. Around the corner from most of Dresden’s major attractions, and a two-minute stroll from the river Elbe, you can’t go too far wrong with what are some pretty excellent prices.
Hotel Zur Post
If you’re taking a trip to Dresden and don’t want to skimp on the traditional experience, then Zur Post could be for you. Aimed at the ‘weekend away’ market, it’s ideal for short stays, offering bed and breakfast packages and a quiet nights sleep. Although it’s not the most central of locations, it offers up the chance to explore the surrounding areas as well as the city.
This family-run hotel can’t be beaten when it comes to a romantic atmosphere. With friendly staff, twee-but-pleasant rooms and a private rose garden, it’s a good spot for sightseeing and having a fully kitsch experience. Based in Neustadt district within walking distance of the Old Town this is a cute place to rest your head for the night.
