We booked this hotel for one reason only - hotels during Oktoberfest were extremely expensive, and we could get a room here for free with our Marriott points. The whole time leading up to the trip I was hesitant about staying here as it seemed so far out. we've been to Munich before, but were traveling with 6 others from the States who had never been, so I wanted them to be in a good location. we all decided that it didn't matter, as we were coming for Oktoberfest most of all. Well, we were pleasantly surprised.
First off, the hotel is quite modern and clean, and spacious. Unfortunately for us, my partner had to do some work when we arrived and he had ample space in the room to work on the computer and not feel cramped. The bed was large and comfortable. No complaints at all.
Secondly, we were close enough to the train station to get anywhere we wanted. The city center was only a few stops away, which took no time at all. The walk to the train station was under 10 minutes and very easy to get to. It also happens to be the same line that takes you to Oktoberfest, so you don't even have to deal with changing lines. Again, no complaints.
Lastly, we realized that we were in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Munich on the 2nd day there - Haidhausen, We decided to take a different way to the station, and were walking through some pretty cool-looking streets. Found some adorable cafes and bars. We then googled Haidhausen and found out its known for its nightlife as well.
Side note - the hotel is connected to another hotel, and there are 2 check-in areas/cafe areas. If you come off the elevators from the Residence Inn and buy a soda at the cafe/kiosk, its about 3 euro, whereas if you cut through the cafeteria area and get a soda from the other side, its only 2 euro. Pretty noticable difference to just go 1 minute out of your way.
Overall, we loved our stay at the Residence Inn and would recommend it to others.
