“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I visited Munich in April when there was a wonderful heatwave, nice. I came from the late winter from Finland and was very pleased with my trip.

The hotel is located opposite the main railway station so it is very easy to reach. It is very average in every sense but I have nothing to complain about. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have had when travelling.

The room was small, and I have never seen a smaller bathroom. The sink had to be placed outside the bathroom.. No aircondition. Very noisy - even at 6th floor. The main train station is located across the street, where our window was. We did not have a good nights sleep. The furnishing and colours looks like stuff from 1980.

The furniture looks very old. There are a lot of paint issues. The light fixtures are in bad shape. The hotel does not have air conditioning, so in the summer it gets very hot. The traffic is loud. There is no swimming pool, and the fitness center is nothing special. The internet connection is very slow.

An affordable hotel located across the street from the main rail station. The rooms were of reasonable size, clean and comfortable; if a bit dated. For the price it is a good deal, especially if you have to catch an early train.

The major drawback was the lack of air conditioning in 30C. This required us to leave the windows open at night, normally not a problem, but with trams and train announcements at all hours, it made for noisy nights and early mornings.

Reasonable price, across from the main train station, easy walk to the central city. This was the best priced hotel we found in Munich that wasn't a hostel. I was worried about it being located next to the main train station since that often means noise, dirt, and crime; but it wasn't a bad location. We never felt uneasy or unsafe, we heard no train station noise, and it was close to many Munich attractions. For those who are prudish, there are some discreet prostitution businesses on the street. If that bothers you, choose a different hotel. But this is not a big red light district such as you find in Amsterdam. The bed was comfortable, everything worked in the hotel, and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are several other hotels on the same street, plus restaurants, and of course the train station across the street is packed with restaurants, cafes, bakeries, markets, even a Starbucks. If you're coming by train you could hardly do better than to stay here.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room away from the train station and got one, but there was some noise in the s...

Nice budget priced hotel that is located near the main transport hub and close to many nice restaurants. Walking distance of many attractions and the underground station is close by. Room is adequate but for a hotel the lack of tea and coffee making facilities is a big minus. The wifi signal is not very strong.

Chose to stay here, close to Munich's Central station whilst in transit (late arrival, early departure). Perfectly adequate for my purposes, but my single room would have been a bit small for a longer stay.
