Stayed here on business so I didn't get a choice in the matter. Based on the pricing and competition I would not choose to stay here. That's not because it's terrible (it isn't), but because there are better options available elsewhere for similar prices. The internet was comically slow and room service was of fairly low quality. I don't normally... More

As a family of four adults travelling together, we had booked two rooms for 3 nights. Having arrived in Munich in our rental car, we were confused when following the GPS to pull up at a Leonardo Hotel, our booking was for a Holiday Inn. At the time of our stay there had been no information sent to us about... More

Sorry to say but for the same amount of money I have stayed in much well equipped and better smelling hotels. Internet is super slow. Cigarett smoke on the corridor is really disappointing. Hotel really needs modernization! :) Anyways, it's clean with small rooms.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay during a tourist visit to Munich, this is NOT the place. In desperate need of modernization and updating this hotel is old, set back amongst trees and difficult to find if you do not have a car or a navigation system. Public transport is a bus and the hotel is... More

Stayed for a week late December 2013-January 2014. Initial room allocation for 2 people, small by way of room and bed sizes, as well as wood furniture that made it look outdated. Asked to change the room and it was politely effected from the second day via an upgrade at no extra charge. New room even exceeded expectations. Moving on,... More

If you get there by public transport you have to walk at least 15 mins so better take a cab if you are tired. Check in was fast but too little information about the hotel facilities and the area. The room was in a good condition the bathroom not. Minibar is empty so you have to use a vending machine... More

I had a bad first impression as I walked into the lobby. Everything looked old-fashioned and tired. As I was standing in line to checkin I looked more carefully and realised I was being unfair - the reason it looks so bad is because there is construction work in progress to resurface the floor. Maybe they will clean up the... More

I spent three night at the Holiday Inn in Effnerstrasse, in Nov. 2013 (room 314). Not too bad, the price was reasonable, and the accommodation in general comfortable.
