“Stylish, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Very comfortable. Perfect location at the Viktualienmarkt steps fro Marienplatz. Excellent staff, extremely helpful. Very nice breakfast, but very pricey, especially with the market right outside the hotel.

I stayed for 3 nights and was suitably impressed by the hotel.

The rooms were spacious, nicely decorated and shower/tub combo was nice. They have rather quirky 'luggage' style tv racks and close storage spaces but they work well enough. The rooms also have a nice little seating area.

The hotel restaurant is highly recommended for dinner - the Japanese fusion 'thing' is done very well here. The sweet potato appetizer and Irish beef was divine.

Location is great, very central to everything. Parking is easy - do it yourself, just pull up to Rindermarket and its on the left; pull in and done. Its easier to find that yourself than it is to try and find whatever the hotel provides for valet (I never found where you were supposed to park otherwise for check-in/drop-off).

The only small annoyance was the wifi not reaching the restaurant. Oh, and sleep quality will be a bit impacted if you sleep in late and the church bells start bonging on you.

All in all a nice stay (although I did have to move rooms as detailed in the room tips)

Room Tip: I hate to put these comments in here as I am sure they are a nightmare for the hotel but I would avo...

We loved this hotel. The rooms are incredibly spacious, comfortable and interesting. The fit outs are beautiful And minimalist. The location is amazing- right on the Viktualienmarkt (a little tricky to find... If you come from the market there is a lift next to the chocolate shop). Try and be there on a Saturday the atmosphere is fantastic in the market.

The breakfast is amazing. We'd been traveling around Europe for a month and this was the most outstanding breakfast buffet in terms of choice, quality and uniqueness. There is a heavy Japanese influence at breakfast and at dinner it is a really wonderful Japanese restaurant.

The prices are high, but the quality of the room, and the service was great. My only criticism would be, a hotel that charges these prices would generally have someone to help you with your bags. This is minor, but when lugging large cases on the street looking for the entrance it would be helpful.

A wonderful facility. The breakfast buffet was the most impressive spread I've experienced in my travels in US or abroad. The staff was friendly and fluent in English. The quality of the room greatly exceeded my expectations. A high quality design and furnishings. Be sure to remember your outlet converter though - the one I bought at REI did not fit in the circular, recessed outlets. Wifi was included in the room and convenient for planning the next day's events. If you are able to splurge, I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Courtyard view was fine - if you can look out on the nearby market it might be fun

Stayed here for two nights over the Christmas holidays. The hotel is conveniently located off the Marienplatz (although a little tough to find in the crushing holiday market crowds) and is also right across from the Viktualienmarkt which is a local food market. We actually walked from the main train station to the hotel (was about a 15 minute walk) but I'm sure we could have gotten there quicker via the metro and going back to the train station we took a cab which was very quick. You are definitely paying for the location to be in this hotel. The room was on the small side but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and well appointed. WiFi is included but had a data max per stay of 500MB, so be careful of this if you will have heavy internet needs. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but had drinks at the bar one night and they were equivalent to what you'd pay in a bigger city for trendy cocktails. You definitely pay a bit more for the location but it is absolutely worth it.

Stayed there just before Christmas and 3 other times before that. Can not have a better location and the hotel offered a lot of charm. Staff were very pleseant. Not a 5 star feel but a 5 star location and did the job. I read a comment about the room menu. Who needs it with so much choice of places to eat in the centre of Munich.

Had a one-night lay-over between planes, had some time to kill in Munich for about 19 hours. Very pleased with this hotel - in the very heart of Munich old-town. Everything is super-clean, staff is super-nice, we were super-satisfied. A little pricey, but location is totally worth it - few steps from U-Bahn, several steps to the Marienplatz with all the gothic-style buildings and churches. Glockenspiel show is a must-see.
