We arrived late to the hotel and the night receptionist immediately recognised us being the final guests. As we arrived so late, he immediately gave us the room key and we were not asked for anymore details. We could go straight to our room and have our good night sleep. The bed was very comfortable. I would fully recommend to... More

This hotel is really well situated near the English Garden and it is a pleasant walk into the centre of Munich. The hotel staff and owner are all very friendly and helpful and make for a pleasnat environment. The breakfast buffet is really good.

The location of this hotel is good. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing about it. Room was cramped. Very stuffy. Windows on fourth floor barely opened. The shower was absurd. It was a bath with a shower head, but shower head was over a ledge. The bathroom light lit up the entire room, so good luck going to bathroom in... More

We chose Das Nikolai based on Trip Advisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The value for a European hotel was great; very reasonable price, clean, large room, great breakfast included in rate. The staff was very friendly, and was around 24 hours a day. The location was wonderful, we walked out of the hotel and right into a street fair, walked... More

Have you ever wondered what traveling might have been like before the age of mass tourism? I often have -- and must say that staying at Das Nikolai Hotel gave me an unexpected glimpse into that past. From the moment we arrived we were treated like long-lost, treasured relatives and this personalized service never failed during our 3-night stay. We... More

I used the Nikolai hotel due to professional business during to nights in October 2014. The hotel is nice, small, but very welcoming. The rooms are small, but not too small. Everything is very clean. The staff is very friendly and genuinely helpful. The breakfast room is nice and the selection is very good. It is well located in Munich... More

my review is based on a one-night-stay in september. the hotel is situated in an old (historical) building; our room was of modest size, furniture was renewed, wc and shower have glass doors, no noise proof, i did not find the cushions to be comfortable; no wardrobe to put your clothes away (if you stay for more days, it is...

This was a great little hotel just outside the main tourist area. We wanted a hotel that was not in the touristy area of Munich, but also within walking distance of the U-bahn (about 5 minutes). This is on a quiet street just off Leopoldstrasse, which was a main street with a lot of restaurants, shops, bars, and markets. It... More

Without doubt this is the best hotel we've ever stayed at in a large city. It has far more character than any of the large and far more expensive chains. The owners and the staff were very welcoming and friendly from the start. Nothing was too much trouble - 'breakfast finishes at 11.00 but if you want to have it... More
