“A bad mistake”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is a well below average hotel which charges high rates when they can get away with it (Bau Munic Exhibition time!!!). It's not often I feel totally ripped of but I did here at 239€ per night. Not much good to say about it at all.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The hotel was undergoing some construction during my stay, however this was not a big inconvenience. I was more than satisfied with the room (perhaps I had lowered my expectations after reading some reviews here). It was small but modern and clean, just fine for a business trip. The staff was also very understanding when I had to cancel one night at the last minute as they did not charge me for this.

My only complaint was the strange smell in the stairwell and hallways. Fortunately, it did not extend into the room itself so it was not that big of a deal.

The service was not good, they try to charge you everythig and they do not try to help you.

This is the last time I reserved in this hotel, I have tried other mercure hotel in Munich and this is the worst, the otherones are fine.

Best regards.

This Mercure disappointed a little. We've stayed in Mercures before - in France and In Austria - and we're very impressed with the high level of cleanliness, modern fixtures, friendly staff, and efficient services. But this Mercure fell a little short. Although the room (a penthouse suite) was lovely and the check-in was fast and efficient, we hit a problem with the in-room coffee machine, and needed one of the staff to help us figure it out, even though there were clear instructions next to the machine! Then, when we did get it working, it made the most terrible coffee and tea. Message to Mercure Munich Schwabing: replace your in-room coffee equipment with simple, effective Keurig machines!

Also, in this suite, we experienced loud conversation early in the morning from staff in the corridor outside the bedroom area in this suite. Again, nothing to wreck our stay there, but still below what we expect of a Mercure.

Nice hotel located not far away from the "party mile" of Munich - Leopoldstrasse. I don't have anything bad to say about this hotel - but then again it's one of the hotels that probably won't stick in my memory.

Checkin went smoothly - like almost all other German hotels they still consider WLAN an opportunity to rib people off - €9,00 for 24 hours of really low low low bitrate internet. I used measuring software - and detected a download rate of less than 400kbits/s - that reminds me of the good old days with dial-up connections and ISDN. Really not cool - and extremely annoying!!

Room was fine but small. The window was open and room was full of noise from the heavy traffic outside - however noise disappeared when closed the window - so thumbs up for noise reduction windows.

TV is on the desk next to the bed - when meant that I wasn't able to lie in the bed and watch TV (unless ONLY lying on me left side). Come on, folks - it's on the first page in the "Building a hotel manual" - TV must be placed on the wall or a table at the end of the bed!

Bathroom was really nice and seemed relatively newly renovated.

I only stayed for one night - so can't comment on the general cleaning. The room seemed fine when I was in it.

All in all a nice hotel - maybe a bit pricey for a quite basic hotel. Paid €171 for one night without breakfast.
