“Just OK - wouldn't go back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Location is at the edge of an industrial area with a fair amount of road noise out front (but mostly dies down during the night). Subway is a 5 minute walk, then 15 minute ride to the city center. Building is from the eighties - solidly uninspiring. Renovation must have been some years ago - hotel is reasonably well maintained, but could use some updating. Room was in decent condition and fairly clean, but nothing to write home about. Hotel staff was friendly but I had to ask 3 times for thinner blankets (the provided blankets are very warm). Wifi was very flaky and frustrating - kept disconnecting, and low transfer speeds. During part of our stay there were several groups of somewhat 'sketchy' guests - I wasn't concerned about safety, but the feel of the place was strange - more like a train station, with a lot of coming and going. Overall, our stay was just OK but I would not go back.

Visited this property on holiday but may be better for business travel as is some distance from major tourist sites. Rooms are adequate but show some wear. Staff was friendly and attentive and grill has a really good menu.

While not located in the city center, this hotel is located a 5 minute walk from the metro which will take you right to downtown. In fact, the staff can sell you a transit pass that works very well if you are going out to Dachau, for example, and generally touring around the city. We merely left our car in their underground parking for 2 days while we went sightseeing. All in all, a good hotel and one that I would recommend.

This hotel is within walking distance of our office so we use it regularly. It's very clean and the staff are quite pleasant, however over the years it has gotten quite dated. The rooms are small but adequate and they do have some nice new linens and pillows. Don't forget your toiletries though. You'll just get soap here. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good with lots of hot items as well as typical fruits, cheeses, breads and cereals. There is also a small workout room if you need it.

I booked this hotel in August for the height of Oktoberfest and there weren't very many reasonable yet not scary looking options. This choice ended up suiting our needs perfectly. We arrived to Munich around 10:00 and wanted to get to Oktoberfest as soon as we could so despite the fact that our room wasn't available, they gave us a key to the pool area to change and then held our bags until we returned much later that night. The staff was friendly, helpful and spoke perfect English. The room was average and maybe a little bit dated but was clean and suited our needs. My only gripe with the room is that they put us on the ground floor and we could hear people out in the courtyard in the morning. We ordered room service a few nights and it was nothing great but perfectly edible and they also can bring you liters of beer via room service if you're too lazy to go down to the bar. Oktoberfest was about 15 minutes by subway from the hotel and the stop was about 2 blocks away. We cheated and took cabs home a few times and they were in the 20 euro area, if memory serves me. There are also always cabs outside if you prefer that option to public transportation and it takes approximately 35 minutes to get to the airport via car from this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to stay away from the ground floor (Rooms 0**).

Short and sweet - stayed here during Oktoberfest because rooms were available. Decor is a bit dated, beds were doubles and on the small side and worn, and the location is in a business district and 20 min from downtown. Rooms otherwise clean and neat. Breakfast room and breakfast selection was above average. Main complaint was that WiFi did not work for two of the four days we were there. We were a group of 12 and we all had the same issue. When I inquired at the front desk they said there was no problem. Magically in day 3 of our stay it started working. Bah!

The reception staff were excellent. I arrived around 10h30, so room was not ready. The reception offered me a key to the pool area, so I could shower and change my clothes after arriving by overnight train. In fact, when I returned to reception, my room was ready. Room was clean and comfortable. Had an evening snack in the bar, which was well prepared and a a good price. My only negative is the cost of breakfast - at €20.00 it is quite expensive. I chose to go into central Munich for breakfast.
