“Great Boutique Hotel in Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We had a recent stay at Das Nikolai Hotel and loved it. The Leopold area it is located in is very nice with lots of restaurants and shops, beautiful architecture and right by the English Gardens. It was very easy to walk to many sights and as well the trains were a block away and very convenient. The hotel has been beautifully updated. The two rooms my family had were large by european standards and very charming with great furnishings and comfortable beds. There are also small balconies to sit on if the weather permits. The rooms were very quiet with one of them facing the courtyard. The breakfast room was very pretty with a great selection of foods available including eggs made to order. The staff were all very helpful and accomodating and there to answer all questions and make recommendations.
We would return to this small boutique style hotel with personal service in a very nice area and would highly recommend it to others.

Stayed here for two nights this week. Had previously stayed in one of H'Otellos a couple of times but very sterile. Pictures on line looked more appealing from Das Nikolai's website and so it turned out to be.
Reception was friendly and efficient. I actually arrived about midnight first evening and was greeted easily and given key with absolute minimum fuss.
Room (102) not huge, but a bit of individuality with lamps and chest of drawers. Will be interesting to see some other rooms over time. Free wifi. Room faced out onto street but was still pretty quiet in evening.
Breakfast room nice and really good selection with fresh cooked egg dishes available (and with smoked salmon was a real treat). Everyone there spoke English well (and friendly).
Easy walk to main drag and loads of bars / restaurants.
Only minor gripes were the usual German issue of offering 2 single duvets on a double bed. Also slightly odd that wc is behind only a partial door rather than fully shut off. OK for me as I was on my own, but might be slightly odd if together.
For me, a decent place and will look forward to another return as in Munich maybe 2-3 times a year.

We had a great time at the Nikolai Hotel. It's situated around the corner of Leopold street, a nice street with a lot of shops. Also a very nice biergarten (Bachmaier Hofbräu) is located very close by.

The hotel is just great. Nice spacious rooms, good bathroom and comfortable beds. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They do their utmost to make the guest feel good. The breakfast is splendid.

We will be back.....

One of the best breakfasts I've ever had in a hotel. Great croissants (better than in France) and an unbelievable selection of fresh fruits. (only way to improve would be to have fresh squeezed juice). Otherwise the room was fine (a little bit small) and the location was convenient (25m by foot to center and 5-10 by metro). Very friendly staff.

I'd forgotten there are hotels like this.. where every detail down to the drinking glass in the bathroom has been chosen with care. I believe the owner of this hotel is on the premises - but even if not, it feels that way. Agree with another reviewer that the entry is off-putting- it is around the corner from the street, and the reception desk does double duty as a bar and a coffee making station. But the genuine warmth of the reception and the charm of the room( I had number 204) make up for that and much more. Breakfast is almost unbelievably sumptuous. Area is full of interesting boutiques and gorgeous Art Deco buildings. (See my report on them at maryaliciatravel.com)

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a nice view over a small park and the double glazing makes them quiet.

This small boutique hotel is a great find offering excellent value. Well trained, friendly and professional staff. Rooms are admittedly small, however, are very comfortable, well appointed and very cleverly designed to maximize use of space. Add in the surprisingly good breakfast (freshly cooked eggs if you so choose) and you have an excellent base for your stay in Munich.

Room Tip: If staying on weekend, request a room on the upper floors away from the street.

When we pulled up to the Das Nikolai, we were a bit startled: It doesn't look like much from the outside, and the lobby is essentially non-existent—just a work space in a pleasant but somewhat nondescript corridor. But our welcome was warm and our room was 'wow'—not large, but with high ceilings, classic tall windows, and many other lovely appointments. I'm not sure what the other rooms in the hotel look like, but if they're anything like this, you can't go wrong. Happily, the area was quiet and allowed for a good night's sleep. Staff were helpful and accommodating, breakfast was attractively served and fresh, and the location is excellent. And if you're tired of pigs knuckles and sauerkraut, try the Sushi Box or one of the other small but excellent restaurants in the neighborhood.
