From the moment you step into Das Nikolai you feel like you're at home. The hotel just has that comfortable, family feeling and it has a lot to do with the warm, friendly staff. We stayed in Munich for a little over a week with an overnight trip to Austria in the middle. As such, we stayed in two rooms.
The first room was very large and comfortable. There was lots of storage for clothes and luggage. The bathroom was nice with good water pressure and temperature. And best of all was our large balcony overlooking a charming courtyard!
The second room, which we were in for only one night, was smaller but adequate. The only complaint about this room was that the bathtub had a window into the bedroom - a very large and unnecessary window that prevented any semblance of privacy.
The area where the hotel is located is very nice and trendy with lots of restaurants, bars, gelato shops and stores like Zara. There is a supermarket across the street for snacks and the underground station is a 3-minute walk. It's a quick 3 stops to Marianplatz, or you could walk for about 25 minutes.
Lastly, the breakfast is really good at the hotel and I recommend taking advantage of it. Everything is really tasty and fresh - all kinds of fruit, salads, meats, cheeses, bread and eggs on demand.
And once again, I'd like to highlight the staff, especially the gentlemen manning the front desk and the lady who runs the breakfast. They were so friendly and helpful, not to mention knowledgeable about their city. They gave us great tips on Oktoberfest and some restaurants.
