As much as I travel and use Tripadvisor, I decided it is time for me to add some reviews. I stayed in this wonderful hotel for 5 nights over New Years with my 10 year old daughter and loved it. It is an easy direct subway ride to this location, no transfers required from airport. Ask the airport help desk for a subway map, it was very useful.
Walk up the stairs near the subway bakery, look to your left across a narrow lane, and you will see the stars on the hotel sign. You will not need a cab to the hotel if you are able to carry your bags up the 2 short flights of subway stairs. It is only a few minutes walk to Marienplatz, and also walking distance to the wonderful science and industry museum. The hotel has been kept updated, and everything was in great shape, and clean. Breakfast was included and eggs were done to order. It was excellent. Wifi was also included, and was okay, not great. Not every hotel in Munich provides breakfast and wifi, and they can be expensive, so these amenities added great value. English was well spoken by courteous staff, some friendlier than others, but all willing to help. When I checked out, they even offered to have a staff member carry my bags to the subway, and also took my bags to my room. There is a small elevator and only carry on size bags fit, but it was not a problem. The only reason I did not give the property 5 stars was that my room, for the intermediate price level, seemed small, with many angles from the 5th floor roof providing places to bump my head. Also the restaurant attached is under new management, and did not offer any items for children. On the plus side, the top floor view toward Marienplatz was fabulous, incredible for New Year's Eve fireworks. There is a nice little restaurant , Opajita, just around the first corner as you head toward Marienplatz. Good food, reasonable prices, English menu available. I loved the hotel, would stay again, but would try for their larger rooms facing Marienplatz next time.
