MEININGER Hotel Dresden Zentrum

The MEININGER Hotel Dresden Center at Wiener Platz is the second hotel in Saxony and the 14th location in Germany. This new hotel is MENINGER’s third new opening this year.

The MEININGER Hotel Dresden Zentrum features 173 rooms with 719 beds, ranking it among the hotels with the most beds in the city. On its four floors, the hotel offers different types of rooms for families, backpackers, groups, and business travelers.

The central theme for this music-inspired hotel design was the poem “Ode to Joy” composed by Friedrich Schiller in Dresden and later set to music by Ludwig van Beethoven. In the lobby, lounge furniture is arranged according to the note progression of the famous Beethoven composition, while lamps hanging like notes from the ceiling, spotlights and red curtains lend the breakfast area a theatrical atmosphere. Furthermore, every guestroom has a glittering disco ball.

From a roof patio with sun loungers, hotel guests can enjoy a unique view of the historic center. In addition to the MEININGER Hotel, the building on Wiener Platz also houses a 3,800 m2 Edeka grocery store on the ground floor. Peter Simmel, the building’s proprietor and investor, is thrilled by how the project turned out.

We are looking forward to the new, very central hotel in Dresden. Between the Central Station and the Central Bus Terminal that will eventually be opened, the hotel is situated in a part of the city that is becoming increasingly more important in terms infrastructure. For the wide mixture of guests who typically visit MEININGER hotels, we have double and multi-bed rooms for up to six people. As is the case with all MEININGER hotels, its facilities include guest kitchens, a bar, and a game zone with a foosball table as standard. […] The MEININGER Hotel Dresden Center is already the seventh new opening since the beginning of the pandemic, and is once again a result of a major team effort. It is a sign of our resilience as a relatively new hotel brand.

Thomas Hagemann, COO of MEININGER Hotels

With the new opening in Dresden and 13 other locations in Germany, the hotel group currently oversees 7,400 beds in Germany. The expansion of MEININGER'S hybrid hotel concept into new and existing markets will continue for the foreseeable future. For the next 12 months, additional hotel openings are planned for Venice and Cologne.
