Interesting stay
It is an interesting experience to stay on the boat. When I wake up, I saw a swan swimming from my window.

Mal was ganz anderes !8
Eine besondere Übernachtung in Dresden. Das Zimmer ist einer angenehmen Größe gewesen. Aber man darf nicht 2,00 mt gross sein sonst wird der Aufenthalt etwas unangenehm. Die Decke ist relativ tief und die Betten zu eng übereinander. Die Lage ist gut : man kann problemlos über die Elbe in die Altstadt laufen.

nice boat, bad neighbors
The staff were very friendly, everything was always clean, and I felt safe traveling as a single woman. The area itself could be perfect because it's close to the river and park but there's an establishment close by that plays very loud techno music for most of the day and night. The loud bass kind of makes it hard to enjoy the river or nature.

Quirky hotel boat. Torch required in dark...
Unusual hotel boat 10 minutes walk from the Neustadt station. Friendly helpful staff and clean rooms. ***warning*** you need a torch after dark as the path/road in poorly lit

A quirky place to stay
This was a quirky place to stay, our room was on the top deck and was simply furnished, but comfortable. Our room had a sink. The bunks were a little small and lacked head room, but we all seemed to sleep well. It was interesting to see the fish jumping outside the boat! The receptionist was very knowledgeable and helped us plan our visit to Dresden. The only negative was the shower arrangements, the communal showers desperately need modernisation to make them fit for purpose. Also the Wi-Fi does not reach the bedrooms.
