Albergo Toscana - Bad Schandau - Building
1
9.4 Excellent (680 reviews)
Overview Reviews

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was actually much nicer than I imagined from looking at the pictures. It was clean with a very comfortable bed and quiet which my dog and I both appreciated.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We end up with an apartment complete with a real refrigerator that makes real ice! A very welcome sight. Check in was easy, staff very helpful. Not everyone does English, but there was always someone around that did. The breakfast was awesome, it’s not often here to have things cooked to order. From here you’re literally in the shadow of the Aufzug Ostrau, elevator which takes you to the mountain top. Rooms were huge, separate living/kitchen areas, bathroom separate as well. They have the old-Skool skeleton like keys for the doors, the building itself is quite a structure, it’s been redone tastefully inside. There’s a large covered outdoor sitting area with a table in the rear. It is very quiet at night, security does not seem an issue at all, a very safe area within easy walking distance to some really good restaurants, etc. From here you’re close to a great many sights. Probably the best bargain of our trip. Love to do it again sometime!
Cons: Nothing the hotel can do about this, but I found the public transportation schedule to be very confusing. You have to cross the river from the Bhf, it can be done by ferry boat as well once you become more savvy. Best bet, if you’re new, is get to Elbkai station by whichever bus you can (its in the middle of town, close to the river) then walk down the river sidewalk to the spa, turn left. Going through town pulling luggage with cobblestones wasn’t much fun.

10.0 Excellent

Pros: We absolutely LOVED our stay here. Very friendly and helpful hosts, comfortable and clean rooms and beds, wonderful water pressure and hot water in the shower, and the location can't be beat...It's right on the small town square where the church is. Breakfasts were wonderful, especially with the spread of homemade jams and marmalades.. the lemon curd was to die for. The hiking trail to the Bastei starts right behind the hotel. Highly recommend this hotel!
Cons: Somebody may complain about parking, but we had no problems with it. Parking was in a lot only a minute's walk away. And the hotel gives you parking passes for your stay. You can pull your car up to the hotel door to load/unload, and then park in the lot. Nothing negative about our stay.

Pros: The host was very friendly.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff are very friendly and accomodating. The tram stop is right outside the hotel so very easy to use. In a good location for hiking and accessing the park. Great breakfast. Very nice rooms and very clean and comfortable.
Cons: Have to pay with cash (and the nearest cash machine is in Bad Schandau) - we were given warning so it wasn't an issue but just a heads up. The property is a bit out of Bad Schandau so maybe not the best location if you're not interesting in the park/hiking/etc.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Newly renovated room was super clean, big comfortable bed, good breakfast, great location to hiking (also tram and bus stop 50m away to town) and you can hike directly from the property. Owners were very nice and helpful with suggestions and transport. We didn't eat dinner in the prnsion but it liked very nice (options in town aren't great).
8.8 Excellent
Pros: + Fantastic surrounding (incl. view from the rooms) and easy access to some hiking routes. But also problematic from the transport standpoint - see the minuses + Extremely friendly family owning the guest house + Breakfast was good, even though it did not have a lot of hot food + The dinners were great as well (note that you have to ask for them in advance)
Cons: - Short windows for breakfast (8:00 - 9:30) and dinner (18:00 - 19:30) are problematic, especially given that the transport to the hotel goes very infrequently. - Location is nice, but it's not easily accessible, esp. with heavy luggage. The tram goes quite rarely, and does not go in the evening. The bus (241) goes just a few times a day. It's even worse in winter.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very helpful. Meals were great! Room and interior was extremely clean. It has been renovated in the past few years and now they are working on the exterior. Imagine it will be even better in a couple years. Trails right outside the door-just what we were looking for.
Cons: The outdoor patio may be improved a bit, but we still enjoyed beverages outside with the birds chirping and amazing scenery.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This was a lovely place to spend a few days. The welcome and service were superb. Breakfast was excellent. The selection of fruits, the yoghurt, the breads, cheeses and the coffee all appreciated. We had dinner there one night. This was also very good and we would recommend. The walking in the area was great. The Bastei is a must see but there's plenty more close to the Waldhaus. We would happily stay here again.
7.9 Good
Pros: Good breakfast and dinners
Cons: The room was very small, no space for night tables etc. The dinner, delicious itself, was served too eartly, 18:30, so after the dinner there was not much to do and the village (Bad Schandau) was far off.

10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked everything, to be honest. The rooms were normal regarding style and decoration, but that does not matter when you are in such a lovely location. The staff was very helpful and the environment was very positive. Everything was very clean and quiet, so my boyfriend and I could enjoy a relaxing weekend there, especially after long hiking days in the area (beautiful forests, by the way!). I am glad that we did not go to the towns that are nearby, which we found noisier and less charming. Stadt Wehlen was the quietest of them all, truly, and we felt very thankful for that. Sitting at the terrace of this property on a summer evening was very comforting and nice. From this terrace, you can also enjoy the views of the Elbe. The breakfast buffet was outstanding! My favourite items were the jams, which I believe are the best ones I have tried so far, especially the one with apple and sage and the jam made out of mango and rhubarb.
Cons: It would be nice if the check out time is a little bit later than 10 am. I think 10 am is pretty soon, but overall I cannot say anything bad about this property, really.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable beds. The best breakfast buffet I’ve seen in a long time!! The owners were very friendly although they weren’t there when I arrived they have a very easy and secure system that I used to retrieve the key myself, and met them the next day at breakfast. Gorgeous outside area and location.

Pros: Overall, we were satisfied with our stay at the Pension Am National-park. The view was surreal and the air was so crisp. The facility was clean and the staff was friendly. We will be returning in the future.

The breakfast was very tastey and the staff were friendly and attentive.
Cons: There is not much to complain about this guest house. We spent great time during our stay. Yet, I wish the room had mini-refrigerator and also a kettle. The restaurant of this hotel (for dinner and lunch) was not that cheap and thus it would be nice if the restaurant was offering lower prices to the hotel guests. Otherwise, everything was fine.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: View from balcony. Dinner. Best restaurant choice in the area was at Zur Ausicht. Other restaurants in town not very friendly.
Cons: I needed to have brushed up on my German more before trying to check in. Last night was very noisy as there was a loud party up the hill that went into the early morning. We need were tired enough that we still slept okay.

She let us check in early so we wouldn’t need to leave our bags in the car. She also recommended the Therme Spa which was a wonderful way to spend a Friday night. Great hiking from the hotel. Also breakfast was really good.
7.9 Good
Pros: Considering the high season, it was certainly worth its price. The location and the house itself are very quiet and generally pleasant; there is a botanical garden just across the road and you can easily get to the nearby pathways to access the complex net leading to the most famous locations of Saxon Switzerland, still being able to get to Dresden in about fifty minutes.
Cons: Worst thing was the sketchy english language support. As for the rest I have to admit I misunderstood the kind of structure because of the name: it is really a very organized guest house rather than a proper hotel.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is set in a picturesque town, a very clean hotel, and a charming terrace for a tasty breakfast. The owners are very courteous and pleasant.
Cons: No air conditioning.Although the owners are very nice, it was hard to communicate because they do not speak English
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Hotel Garni Dekorahaus is in a beautiful location with traditional well maintained rooms and easy access to public transport and Bad Schandau city centre. The host was very nice and took extra pains to ensure that we had a comfortable stay. Though he did not speak any English and my Deutsch is almost non existent, we were able to converse well and he gave several recommendations which helped us have a fantastic experience touring Sachsen Schweiz. Breakfast fare while limited was of good quality. I will definitely stay there again. Dankeschön!!

4.6 Okay
Pros: The location is really nice and convenient, easy to reach. The food from the hotel restaurant is extremely delicious, haven't had so great hotel food for a long time.
Cons: SECOND-HAND SMOKE. If you hate smoking people, don't stay here. There is no airconditioning in the room so you have to open the window to get fresh air, which is great in the region. But the hotel didn't ban smoking at the balcony of the room, so you can breathe in other guests' second-hand smoke EVERY morning for free and make you have a super bad headache and disgusting when you just woke up. This totally ruined our beautiful honeymoon mood.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location, views of nature, breakfast, perfect SPA, restaurant, personal of hotel reception ( theirs information by e-mail about parking and ferry costs and timetable some days before visit ).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is located in an excellent location to explore the whole region. The hotel is very well appointed with excellent facilities; the spa is particularly well appointed with a good sizes swimming pool. The staff were always friendly, helpful and courteous. The rooms are of good size and are comfortable as are the beds. The hotel is maintained to a high standard. There was always a good selection for breakfast and the timings were good. We were able to make full use of the public transport from Kurort Rathen to visit the area and to use it to support our walking and explorations.
Cons: We felt the evening meal choice in the hotel was limited with a restricted menu, which didn't change on a daily basis. However the sister hotel offered a much greater choice and is located nearby. Although WiFi is available in the reception area, its coverage elsewhere is limited, This is now unusual in most hotels which offer full coverage.

5.0 Okay
Pros: The location is great. It is easy to go hiking. The sauna area is really large and nice. It was very relaxing.
Cons: - The personal was really not friendly. They did not try to make efforts to make our stay nicer. For example: this morning, for our last breakfast, we borrowed (for 2 minutes) a bottle of water from the buffet to go fill our glasses at our table. When the lady saw it, she came straight to our table and took the bottle back to the buffet without any word. In addition, when they say the breakfast is over at 10.30 am, do not except to find any food at 10.31... - You really have to pay for any extra: if you want to access the sauna, you have to pay. If you want to use a bathrobe in the sauna, you have to pay. If you want to drink water in your bedroom, you have to pay... - There are signs everywhere to tell you what to do or what to not do. - The hotel is quite old and it smells like it is old...
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A very charming and comfortable hotel in the heart of Saxon Switzerland of the National Park, Bastei in 5 minutes walk - of course, a room with a view. Very good breakfast and coffee. The restaurant and fish was also delisious, kids menu.

7.9 Good
Pros: If you want to see the Bastei rock formations at a time of day when it is not totally swamped with visitors you should stay here and go out late or very, very early before the sun rises. The hotel is clean, the rooms are good and it has a good breakfast.
6.3 Good
Pros: Location is super. Good breakfast but not with the panoramic view. Only the restaurant for dinner in the evening has a the exceptional view.
Cons: No airco, so we opened the window (it was 35 degrees!) but there was a lot of noise till late in the night and from early in the morning. Bad pillows.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good breakfast
7.5 Good
Pros: Very beautiful hotel, clean, nice beds and bathroom and a very good choice of breakfast.
Cons: The hotel was clearly understaffed (this was also the reason why the restaurant was closed). This became clear with very rushed/impatient staff. We were given the wrong room (this can happen, no problem), but when mentioning this the staff reacted quite irritated (even though we were right and we spoke to the same person who checked us in). Not unfriendly but clearly understaffed. But at this price point you may expect a little more.
6.5 Good
Pros: Great location, tiny rooms, but I thought that was ok. The best thing was the shared terrace and the self-service bar (even though it wasn't always stocked). That really made up for the tiny rooms. The view of the river is great.
Cons: The staff wasn't very friendly, bordering on impolite and they were pretty gruff most of the time, especially in the restaurant. The owner is around alot and he is nice, but otherwise we were snubbed a few times, for example when we wanted to eat dinner without a reservation, even though the place was half empty. We were also barked at for not putting our breakfast trash in the bucket on the table because it looks messy, I mean, hello? It's our table, and we're onl holiday, be chill.. The quality of the food in the restaurant is so-so, the pasta is too expensive for what it is. The breakfast is poor compared to other hotels, with weird, sweating meats (eww) and little fruit. They don't change it either so it get's pretty boring after a few days. Also they don't have ANY newspapers lying around, not even a German one. Very disappointing.
5.6 Okay
Pros: The staff were friendly and thoughtful; the included breakfast was very good, people at reception were pleased to assist tourists
Cons: size of room was a bit tight for three people

Cons: On the day prior to my leaving a British couple were told that the hotel did not accept visa and they had to use travellers cheques. I was told that the hotel did not accept mastercard. Luckily I had a Maestro card with me. What would have happened if I had not. A visit to a bank for cash. anotherwise excellent stay (you need to speak German to enjoy the hotel properly

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good, quite location, very close to the Bastei Bridge Beautiful view from the balcony Delicious breakfast

4.6 Okay
Pros: The location is really nice and convenient, easy to reach. The food from the hotel restaurant is extremely delicious, haven't had so great hotel food for a long time.
Cons: SECOND-HAND SMOKE. If you hate smoking people, don't stay here. There is no airconditioning in the room so you have to open the window to get fresh air, which is great in the region. But the hotel didn't ban smoking at the balcony of the room, so you can breathe in other guests' second-hand smoke EVERY morning for free and make you have a super bad headache and disgusting when you just woke up. This totally ruined our beautiful honeymoon mood.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location, views of nature, breakfast, perfect SPA, restaurant, personal of hotel reception ( theirs information by e-mail about parking and ferry costs and timetable some days before visit ).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is located in an excellent location to explore the whole region. The hotel is very well appointed with excellent facilities; the spa is particularly well appointed with a good sizes swimming pool. The staff were always friendly, helpful and courteous. The rooms are of good size and are comfortable as are the beds. The hotel is maintained to a high standard. There was always a good selection for breakfast and the timings were good. We were able to make full use of the public transport from Kurort Rathen to visit the area and to use it to support our walking and explorations.
Cons: We felt the evening meal choice in the hotel was limited with a restricted menu, which didn't change on a daily basis. However the sister hotel offered a much greater choice and is located nearby. Although WiFi is available in the reception area, its coverage elsewhere is limited, This is now unusual in most hotels which offer full coverage.
