Hotel Saechsischer Hof
Bruehl 26, Chemnitz, Saxony, 09111, Germany
3 Stars in Convenient Location
I picked the hotel mostly because of its location, conveniently close to the station and the city centre. It is a locally and family owned place, which to me is a plus (I don't believe in big chains). Sächsischer Hof well deserves its three stars. The room was newly renovated with a modern bathroom and a good bed. (Sorry I forgot to take a photo of the room.)
The hotel has a restaurant on the ground floor but I did not eat there - it looked quite good, though. The breakfast buffet was really nice.
The only problem was that one day my room was not cleaned because the cleaner had not yet completed her round by 2 p.m.! The complaint with the boss obtained me, as compensation, a nice big calendar with photos of Saxony for next year (and the cleaner an unpleasant talk with her boss, I assume).
Their website looks sort of incomplete at the moment but the photos will give you an idea. I booked the hotel via www.hrs.de.
Unique Quality: - Family owned
- convenient location: less than 10 minutes walk from the central station, one block from the bus station, walking distance to city centre, Theaterplatz, Schlossteich.
- abundant breakfast buffet
- in theory quiet, in a pedestrianized street and most rooms look into the courtyard - unless some students in the houses around are having a party... See my Brühl tip about the housing project for students in this quarter.

The Donkey's Bridge
What's so special about a Donkey's Bridge? Well, this is actually a play of words: In German a mnemonic aid is called Eselsbrücke, i.e. Donkey's Bridge. Near Rabenstein, there used to be a real Donkey's Bridge crossing a long closed railway track. Nowadays, the track is gone, too, but as a rememberance, they've erected a tiny Donkey's Bridge which looks kinda cool to me.
Karl-Marx-Stadt --> Chemnitz
"Karl Mary Kopf"
Chemnitz wouldn´t be the same without it...it is the emblem of the City.
The name of the City during the times of the GDR was Karl-Marx-Stadt and after the wall came down it got its old name back.
"The old and the new City Hall"
The amazing thing is that the old City Hall looks like new one and the other way around.
