I came with few expectations as it was a late booking through Wotif, the same day I decided to go to Dresden. My room is comfortable enough, and quite large compared to some rooms.
The hotel is located conveniently enough - it's only a couple of minutes' stroll to Altmarkt, and although I haven't gone there yet, probably the same across the bridge to Neustadt.
No room service, and bar and restaurant are both somewhat limited, but what they do provide is good.

... they had not decided to rebuild the Altstadt in this way. It is beautiful, but in some ways I think it is fake and even means forgetting (or down playing?) their dark history by rebuilding everything so it looks the same as it did before. They could have rebuilt things in a more modern, bright and refreshed way, whilst still paying homage to their history, and giving more meaning to the few buildings that did survive the war and bombings. But perhaps this would be fake too. ...
... great. Then Caleb went on to Prague, and Nick and I rented bikes and did a big day cycling to what we could going off of a map. That night we tried out a bit more of the nightlife and found a reggae/hip hop club. It was fun. Then Nick left, on to Prague. I had a day not doing much besides planning and staying close to the hostel. I did get out for dinner to an Indian restaurant, which was surprisingly good. I took it easy that night since I knew I was cycling the next day. And ...
... structures, while the incendiaries ignited them, severely reducing the number of shelters available to the retreating German troops and refugees. The bombing raid on Dresden destroyed almost all of the ancient center of the city in three waves of attacks. Widely quoted Nazi propaganda reports claimed 200,000 deaths. The German Dresden Historians' Commission, in an official 2010 report published after five years of research concluded there were up to ...
