I had the good fortune to have a business trip to Munich during Oktoberfest. Unfortunately rooms are extremely scarce and the only place I could get a reservation was at the Leonardo. Of course because it was peak season they had jacked up the rates to what one would normally spend at a four or five star hotel. It was decidedly not that. The tiny lobby was rather artsy and I thought for a moment, "oh this will be OK." Ha! The room was cramped, with a tiny bathroom that had a shower (no room for a tub). It was reminiscent of a "capsule hotel" in Japan, only without the amenities. The television didn't work, and neither did the cooling system. I had to open the window (singular) which in its open position transacted the bed so if you sat up you would hit it. I got to enjoy the sounds of noisy Oktoberfest drunks. The place has Internet service, but only for a rather high fee - 24 hours will cost you about as much as a month of home service, depending on where you live. The best thing about this hotel is that it will encourage you to get out and see Munich, because there is no way you will want to spend any time there. On the positive side, the front desk clerk was very pleasant and friendly. The location is good. There is plenty to do nearby. And the bed, though even narrower than a U.S. twin size, was comfortable. So if all you want to do is crash after a night of partying, and you don't mind spending over $300 per night for no amenities, this is the place for you.
