“PERFECT LOCATION IN THE CENTER OF MUNICH & BAVARIA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We spent five days at the Platzl Hotel as home base for exploring Bavaria and Munich, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cups of hot Gluhwein in hand, our primary focus was on the Christkindles Markt a two-block walk from the hotel in the City Hall Square. Whether we/you are shopping the Christmas markets, singing along at the Hofbrau Haus (a half-block away) for Octoberfest, or venturing out to Garmisch, Oberammergau, or the castles of King Ludwig II; we would stay at Platzl Hotel again. Super Bonus: the BEST breakfast buffet we have had in Europe. Added bonus: Wonderful pub, bar and restaurant attached to the hotel and a very friendly and helpful staff to make reservations for you. From the veal goulash and spaetzel at the pub, to the Stollen (Christmas cake) and pastries on the breakfast buffet, to the comfortable rooms and baths; you will enjoy your stay at the Platzl Hotel. Two pieces of advice: request a room on the "quiet side" to avoid the late-night revelers from the Hofbrau Haus and Hard Rock Cafe, and enjoy the wonderful restaurants within the immediate area of the hotel. Prost!

Room Tip: Select a room on the "quiet" inner courtyard. We enjoyed the 1st Floor because of its eas...

The location couldn't be better. One block from the Hofbrauhaus, same block as Hard Rock Cafe, two blocks from the Christmas markets, three blocks from the Residenz, three blocks from the UBan/SBan. The breakfast was excellent, and I appreciated the long hours. The front desk staff was so friendly and helpful. The little bar is cozy, the lobby is nice for sitting in the evening with friends and a glass of wine. Rooms have wi fi. There is a computer room for those of us who don't travel with laptops. There is an excersize room and sauna. I would definitely stay there again. Rooms are spacious with plenty of room for open suitcases, and lots of closet space. Hairdryer and robes are a plus. Safe is handy, as is the refrigerator (for storing leftovers from restaurants).

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the inner courtyard or a room on Sparkassenstrasse. They are the quietest. Th...

We stayed at Platzl Hotel during our Christmas break in December 2012. We really enjoyed the location, great hospitality, atmosphere and friendly staff. Easy to get in and out, easy to to park, ... I put Platzt high on my favorite-hotel-list for Munich.

A truly 4 star superior property. Excellent staff. Large lobby. Above expected rooms including size.

The location is spot on. A large luxurious breakfast where you can order hot dishes including Munich sausage.

An attractive and very well maintained modern hotel. Right in the center of things, within five minutes on foot from nearby Marienplatz. A positive feature. Lovely, spacious lobby. Most courteous, helpful, reception staff. Fronts on Sparkassenstrasse which can at times be a bit noisy with impatient traffic. Which might advise one to go for the somewhat more expensive room(s) that locate away from street traffic. One modest complaint: While the single room accommodation was amply roomy by many German hotel standards, the bathroom was quite restrictive; the hand-basin was so small it did not lend itself to filling with water for much use. Aside from its more elegant dining facility, the hotel is linked to the nearby Ahinger Hof (opposite the Hofbräuhaus) that features well regarded beers from its own brewery outside Munich. The food is reasonably priced, excellent, and served within an attractively designed Bavarian restaurant atmosphere.

Room Tip: Simply be mindful of rooms that front on a well trafficked street.

The Platzl was the highlight of our Munich stay. Classy, and comfortable. The front desk staff was very helpful. Our room was impeccable. Breakfast was wonderful. Location could hardly be better - near the Glockenspeil and the Hoffbrau Haus. Worth every penny to stay in the heart of the action.

I always stay at the Platzl when visiting Munich. The location is ideal for the shopping, public transport, the Christmas markets etc. although being so central can be noisy at night.
The staff are courteous and attentive, rooms comfortable and weii maintained. I found the free wi-fi throughout the hotel easy to sign up for and speeds for email were good.
The highlight of the hotel is the buffet breakfast - I just wish I could do it justice!
