This hotel was a mixed experience. The exterior paint job is kind of cool, but inside was not so stylish. My shower was small and broken, the room wasn't very sound-proofed, and the Wi-Fi was neither free nor working. On the plus side, its handy to the station and okay walking into town, and the staff were good (I'd say... More

Excellent place to stop well situated , short walk to central station easy to get to major sites. Very reasonably price breakfast staff very helpful. If you want a clean and accommodating place to stay for a couple of days this is where to stop.

Easy access from airport, walking distance to Central Munich and all the attractions (Marienplatz, Town Hall, and Hoftbrauhaus), central train station two minute walk. great prices, many local cafes, restaurants, shopping nearby and even a Laundromat nearby, too. Staff very helpful, many bus tours leave from outside the main train station, a two minute walk. Daily breakfast available in the... More

The Elephant was perfect for me as a solo traveller. I got there easily from the airport by train to the Hauptbanhof, and walked about 5mins. I left by bus and this was an easy 10 min walk. The hop on hop off bus was nearby, and old Munich town easy walking distance. Staff very friendly and helpful breakfast excellent... More

A no-frills hotel, very close to the central train station. Staff was helpful. Room is clean. My only complaint is that the cleaning lady ignored my "don't disturb" sign on the door. Very recommended if you don't want to spend too much.

very close to train station, very close to the main centre, 5 minutes walk. very safe city, room was good enough, clean and only moan is the lack of sound proofing, in the toilet we could hear everything from the next room and through the door of the room, hotel recently painted in different coloured emulsion paint looks quite good.

We were in Munich for a couple of days and this hotel was selected for its location to the train station. The train station is handy for bus tours too. We took the train to the centre of town to visit the main attractions. Hotel is a short walk to/from Augustina Biergarten (fabulous food & beer) The room was very... More

The location isn't ideal for sightseeing, since it's close to the station (really, really close), but not that much to the Downtown, more charming area. You can, however, get trams or buses really easily. The room itself is ok -- not a good view or anything, but comfortable, with good heat (since it was Winter) and decent internet. Breakfast isn't...

Yes, Creatif Hotel Elephant (never got the elephant part, though) is located just three minute walk from the Munich Central Station and it is the location I chose it for in the first place. It also has a rather colorful facade, which makes it to stand out in the neighborhood. Although pretty close to two major thoroughfares and has a... More
