“Nice, family place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Spent a Friday night in early October and found it very nice, friendly and convenient. We were able to walk to Marienplatz and Hofbrauhaus, and there is a U-Bahn just outside the door. Just a smaller, family run place that is nice.

This hotel is like trip against the time. In best meaning of it. Breakfast is served by ever smiling service, from Tuesday to Friday by owner herself, Mrs. Wissman. Food is HOT, fresh and awesome, not like in buffets in chain hotels (yes, Radisson Blu, I'm looking at you). Marvelous coffee makes your perfect day. Just ask for extra cappuccino after you finish your breakfast ;-)
Rooms are simple, but very clean and stylish. Cleanliness must be one of top priorities of the service. Writing desk is in most rooms (If not in all) as well as TV with cable (except CNN, everything is in German). TV sets are changed with LCDs, one room after the other. Bathrooms have plenty of good quality towels and soap, filled and checked every day.
Hotel has 24/7 reception service, so you can keep REAL keys with huge key chain at the desk. No lousy credit card which you have to keep (and can loose) with you.
I know, all are just little things, but for frequent visitors like me (at least one week in every month), it's important. As well as the fact that every service person soon recognizes you and you can get every time the same room. No unwanted surprises, just a perfect service.
Hotel is located right next to Theresienwiese where famous Oktoberfest happens every year. For other travels, you can use underground which has stop right below the hotel. Entrance is 70 meters from hotel door. After 3 stops, you're at Marienplatz, Munich downtown.
You can park your car right in front the hotel or in hotel garage, which is located circa 10 minutes by walk from hotel. During Oktoberfest however, leave your car wherever it is now and take train/plane (it's 3 stops/1 change from Hauptbahnhof). Parking is pure horror everywhere in the city and cops are eager to leave you little yet expensive memorabilia behind your wiper. In general I recommend to keep your vehicle at hotel parking place and use great public transportation. If you buy week ticket in MVV sales point 150m from hotel (same U-Bahn station), you can travel whole calendar week (Monday till Sunday) for just 12.70EUR (it covers rings 1 and 2 - from Hauptbahnhof to Ostbahnhof and to Olympiapark, Poccistrasse is last station of ring 2). This ticket cannot be bought in vending machines, you have to go to MVV centre! Also please note that it's really from Monday till Sunday, not 7 days from purchase.
I stay in this hotel since it restarted in 2006 every month and I can recommend it without any reproof. Quality is constant ever since. Little teasers for 'stammgaeste' are also very nice.
If I would suggest improvement, it would be air condition. It's pretty hot in summer in Munich. But honestly, if I would have to choose between hot served breakfast and A/C, I'd go for Mrs. Wissman's breakfast, that's no-brainer for me. I love this hotel!

Room Tip: Top floor suite has tub, others have shower. Rooms with windows to Lindwurmstrasse are noisy.

We stayed here during Octoberfest and the hotel is just perfect. Closed enough ( 5 minute walk) to the Octoberfest yet far enough from all the noise. The hotel is quiet at night even with the traffic outside. The staff are friendly and the bathroom is just spotless. It is a 3 star hotel but is better than 4 and some 5 stars hotel we stayed at during this trip. It is situated next to a train station that will take you to the centre of Munich - 3 stops away. If you prefer taxi, it cost roughly $6-$10 euros. From here we were able to go to Salzburg and Fussen. Recommend this hotel if you are looking for good area and cost. Free internet is also a plus.

I came to Germany for the first time & just booked this hotel. Stayed there for 2 weeks & it was fantastic. The great thing about this hotel is its tidyness and friendly staff. Its on top of Metro subway thus anytime we can just catch a train & reach places. Lots of restaurants around & 2 stations away from the city center. Breakfast is good with EGGS + lots of cheese/chocolate creams for bread.

The hotel was clean and easy to get to. Really close to the Oktoberfest grounds. Having a metro stop right outside the hotel was great!
The breakfast was good - it was a nice treat to have eggs included ( and not just bread & jam).
There is parking outside (6 spots), but there are n additional 3 in a garage 5 minutes away (extra 5 euro fee). We were able to get the free parking 1 out of the 4 nights.
The room was a little small and the bathroom was right beside the bed (not a lot of privacy!). The bed was spacious and comfortable. There is no AC and the winow opens to a busy street.

We arrived in Munich in the early morning after a long overnight flight from Singapore, and got to the hotel using the city's efficient subway system without too much difficulty. Instead of the usual refrain from many a past hotel experience to wait around till closer to check-in time, the front desk staff took pains to check with the chamber staff on the earliest availability of the next cleaned room. We were pleasantly surprised to be invited to have breakfast while waiting for our room to be ready. Breakfast in the lovely and cosy dining room was outstanding, with a nice selection of breads and spreads, cold cuts, and bacon, ham and eggs to order, in addition to orange juice and tea, coffee, or hot chocolate. The charming ladies overseeing the dining room warmly attended to our various requests, and even provided a packet of gummy bears and a small puzzle for our 8 year old son. We enjoyed this same impeccable breakfast service throughout our 5 day stay at this hotel. Very soon after we were done with breakfast that first morning, we were able to check into our room, well before 10.30 am. The room was a bit tight for 2 adults and a child, but did not pose a hardship. Thoughtful touches included welcome bottles of wine for the adults and a bottle of orange juice for the young one, as well as a bowl full of assorted candy. The bed was comfortable, and the toilet a bit tight but sparkling clean. The hotel is located only 20 meters from the entrance to a subway station (Poccistrasse) and thus very convenient to reach the main train station (Hoptbahnhof) and downtown tourist areas including the main square (Marienplatz) and the Deutsches Museum. We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at the hotel which allowed us to visit all the main attractions in Munich without much difficulty via the excellent subway system.

I have stayed in Munchen in June, with my husband, for 5 nights. The hotel is at the junction with the highway and near the Puccistrasse Metro station (http://www.mvv-muenchen.de) at two station from the city center.
The staff is hospitable. Instead of smell of smoke at the reception, the hotel is more cleaning. There is an elevator The double room was comfortable.
There is a furniture and a desk. The big wardrobe has a security box.
There is the WI-FI line but the service is limited to four password throughout the hotel equipped by a local network than you can found in internet paid. There is a TV flat. The floor is carpeted.
The single room is not so different.
The prefabricated bath has, in addition to the sanitary (shower), a mirror and a hairdryer, two big and small towel.
The breakfast is a full of salty food (cheese, ham, salami, butter…) or marmalade, Nutella, orange juice, fresh fruit, two types of bread….coffee, tea..and the specialty are eggs with bacon.
During my stay It rained. I did not hear any noise with all windows closed. You can hear the traffic on the main road at night with window opened.
I recommend the Italian restaurant, two streets near: FRIULANA Osteria Pizzeria(see the review)!
I think that I will return in this hotel because It’s in a strategic position and is more comfortable!
