Rooms are quite large and work there is possible. Bathroom is also on the good level and nothing I can complain if checking cleanness. Something called 'river view' is not exactly what I have expected. This hotel's gable wall facing the river. From other rooms you can see the river, that's it. No terrace or balcony. Breakfast is very average...

This hotel is aimed at business travellers including those at the nearby convention centre. There were no such events during our visit, so the hotel was very quiet and the prices were low. The rooms are fine and the service is good. There's an adjacent restaurant which is not so good.

Dear Mr. Sidmouth, thank you for taking time to give us a feedback of your stay in our house. We will forward your comments to the whole staff. We have two adjacent restaurants which both offer delicous food to our guests. What exactly did you miss? If you told us the reason for your dissatisfaction, we could have reacted accordingly....

We (myself, DH and DD) recently stayed at the Mecure while my DD participated in the IDO Tap Championships this December. The room was spacious - we had a triple occupancy room which provided a french bed (a double with individual duveas) and an additional bedroom which was a couch that converted to a double bed. My DD loved having...

Very comfortable, spacious rooms well presented and stocked. Breakfast was amazing with a huge amount of choice to suit everyone, the view from the breakfast room over the Elba just made breakfast a wonderful experience. Easy to find location, with a choice of eateries very close by for convenience. The hotel will also take a dog !

The Mercure Riesa is a basic accomodation with not the most modern rooms anymore but still not yet rundown. Convenient location with two restaurant attached and a 10 min stroll to oldtown ... what hasn't much to offer anyway. Rooms are airconditioned.

The hotel is modern and well positioned next to the Elbe and close to the city centre. There is a budget supermarket close by if you need provisions. The bus and railway stations are 5-10 mins walk away. The rooms are a good size, with plenty of natural light. The breakfast was varied and ample. The staff were helpful in...

“I had 117 - first floor (lifts available) there was a wedding party underneath on Saturday which generated a little noise which quelled. If you're sensitive to noise then avoid or check beforehand.”
