Arriving late at night in Munich, without a hotel reservation, is not a desirable position in which to be. Being an adventurous group, however, that normally it's not an issue with us. But on this trip, when we arrived in Munich we noticed we were competing with an exhibition of many people, who were filling fine local hotels. I previously looked up a selection of hotels and for the city, but I'm very happy that I did not make advance reservations. Many of the hotels showing available were actually in a seedy part of town just a few blocks away. And others, when I stopped in to check availability for The night found that they were priced outside the range at which was my comfort level. Two hotels were over $600 a night. That's generally not in the traveler's budget!
Fortunately,after a bit of desperation, we happened upon the Hotel Torbrau What a wonderful surprise!. From the street, late at night, it doesn't appear to be as outstanding as it is. no grand lobby; no uniformed attendants; just clean, pleasant reception ready for their tired guests. Omar just came on duty and was most accommodating with our room and parking requirements.l knew I would be pleased without even seeing the room. Our room, for three people, was on the first floor one level up from the reception. The room has ample space plus I'm vestibule at the entrance of the room with a separate closet area plus a very large bathroom. The bathroom had a king-size tub, great shower and dual sink, which made it ideal for rinsing our travel clothes, and all the amenities one could want. Our room at three windows overlooking the street and was very comfortable. In the morning we stopped by for breakfast. I'm traveling throughout Germany when a hotel offers a breakfast buffet it usually has limited variety of items. Usually one will find cold cereal perhaps a hard-boiled eggs and fruits of varying kinds. This buffet however how resembles one you would find at one of the finer hotels; complete with linen tablecloths and china dishes. top this off with a very courteous and attentive staff and you have a winner every time! The dining room also has a delightful balcony overlooking the streets in the city.
Obviously, I rate this hotel very highly. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. The Hotel Torbrau has earned five gold stars in my opinion.
