I spent almost a week Residence Inn which was quite pleasant stay. I always thought about Residence Inn as a home like stay, and in fact it was that way. It is perfectly suited for extended stays especially if you prefer to cook yourself. As a part of room you will get kitchenette, quite nicely equipped (dishwasher, microwave, cooking plate, fridge ,dishes, mugs etc.).
Best part of the hotel is that it is quite new. I saw elevators dated for 2011 so building itself cannot be much older (at least it does not look like). During walk to your room you may sense its still new smell.
Location: Depending on which part of Munich you are interested in. If Ostbahnhof area is your sweet spot, no other hotel won't be better. Residence Inn is in a walking distance from Ostbahnhof - no more than 500-600 m away.
Rooms/facilities: Hotel foyer is bright and welcoming, hotel rooms are modern, nicely decorated. If you have a room from courtyard side, you will have more enjoyable view rather than from a street. You may get a room with ether shower or bathtub (which is a bit small).
Rooms are not very large, however cleverly furbished that allowed use fairly small space very efficiently (e.g. hidden in walls wardrobes with sliding doors).
Amenities: As it was mentioned in the beginning kitchenette is very conveniently equipped - you can prepare virtually any meal and then serve it easily).
Each room has built-in self programmable safe. There is also free Wi-Fi available in rooms.
Big disappointment for me was lack fully fledged recreation area. A pool is missing and gym was cramped that if there are more than 3 persons inside, you will feel very uncomfortable.
Service: Receptionists were always nice and inviting - but room service was not the utmost quality. One day I haven't received tea replenishment other day I had the feeling that floor has not been swept up.
Dining: Complimentary breakfast has a decent dishes selection and basically anybody will find something to eat. The only annoyance is the small number of seats and not very eager to clean staff during morning rush hours.
I noticed that between 7.00-7.30 it is always difficult to find a free seat (not saying about a table). In fact if the staff have responded faster with cleaning on tables which were left when customer already left, it would have changed completely the picture.
Price/Value Ratio: Price could be a bit lower (>200€), however if you take into consideration complimentary Wi-Fi and breakfast you can live with that.
Overall: I have to stay in Ostbahnhof area again, I will stay in Residence Inn.
