    All members of staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The location is great next to a beautiful park, right on a cycling path and with a river boat pier nearby. Excellent food.

    Amazing place near the castle. Park is nice as well as river views. On site restaurant has plenty options for food and drinks and is absolutely affordable. What could be better than 2 beers near the fireplace after walking all day long? Recommend it. Definitely exceeded my expectations.

    I wish the staff for the buildings followed the 6:00 closing time. I got a ticket late and had just one hour to see as much as I could. The staff began closing up windows at 5:30 and by 5:40, one guy was telling me "bye bye" and shooing me out. So I hurried faster than I wanted to get through most buildings and even the gift shops so the staff could be finished before 6:00. Please explain the meaning of the closing time to patrons.

    Room, bed, and pillows were comfortable. Staff turning down the bed was luxurious. Woman at desk told us how to take a ferry and tram downtown which saved us a lot of time. The food and ambiance of the whole property were just magical.

    Limited nearby parking. If you come late, you have to park way around in back.

    Our "comfort" room was small, but quaint. Nice location right on the Schloss Pillnitz property. Excellent breakfast buffet included, with a very accommodating wait staff.

    Bicycle Friendly AND Elegant

    People who complain the hotel is not "in" the palace are nit-picking. It is a few meters from the palace and our room looked out over the roof and one of the inner gardens of the palace. The entrances to both the palace and the garden are, at most, a 1 minute walk away. The hotel is very attractive inside and somewhat plain but not unattractive outside. The service was friendly and helpful, and they had a secure dry place overnight for our tandem bicycle in a locked bicycle garage. The hotel room was spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. We really appreciated being able to check in and then spend a relaxed time in the palace gardens, which are well worth seeing.

    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    The Schloss Pillnitz (castle/stately home) itself is quite impressive but the hotel is at the edge of the palace complex and not really part of it so the aerial photo of the castle in the booking.com ad for the hotel is totally misleading! The staff and the manager were somewhere between inexperienced, indifferent and surly. The lounge is unattractive and there are no other facilities. It's also too far from the centre of Dresden

    Hotel is in an annex of the castle while I was more interested in staying within a castle.

    Service was impeccable. Not only did the employees tend to our every need, they did it with a smile and pride.

    It was wonderful to be on the grounds of a genuine palace and be able to walk through the magnificent gardens after closing time. Our lovely room also had a view over it. Breakfast was fantastic and served in a beautiful room, or in nice weather could be taken on the terrace. Highly recommended!

    Shame there was no A/C in summer it must be very warm in the bedrooms.

    The location, near the River Elbe, in Pillnitz Castle grounds and beautiful gardens. Dining or having a drink on the patio is not to be missed.

    Need to have a car to stay here as its a little far from Dresden. Not all rooms of same category are of equal sizes.

    Beautiful property. Great location. Inside a beautiful, old castle with the Elbe river at walking distance. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and there are lots of small touches to appreciate. Totally recommend the place.

    I liked that this place has some much history! It has a tour guide only in German but you can request English during summer. The grounds are romantic and relaxing... It will take you at least two the three hours to walk around and enjoy. There are very beautiful shops in the grounds.. Just too much to see... The drive to Dresden was about 20 minutes. Will stay here again during the summer. Can't wait!
