The A&O Dresden opened in August 2007. The centrally located building offers you 165 rooms with modern furnishings in various categories. On the roof of the A&O Dresden there is a terrace and bar from which you can let your eyes wander over the panorama of the Altstadt.
The A&O Dresden is only 400 meters from the Dresden Central Station, just two bus stops away. Due to its central location and good connections the A&O is suitable for those coming by car, train or bus, and is great for excursions into the city.
The unique bar on the rooftop terrace, with its breath-taking panorama view over Dresden's Altstadt, is one of the highlights of the A&O Dresden. In addition the location has seminar rooms and a lobby with a bar that invite guests to work and relax. Because of its central location city tours are offered beginning at the A&O. There are parking spaces available for guests arriving by car or bus.
