“Great place for New Year in Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We stayed at the Platzl Hotel for 2 nights over New Year. The hotel is pefectly located opposite the Hofbrauhaus and a short walk from Marienplatz. I'd recommend it to anyone.The hotel was clean and comfortable. We booked a superior room which was spacious with a large bathroom. The room overlooked the courtyard, which was a blessing as the rooms overlooking the street could be quite noisy, expecially those that overlook the Hofbrauhaus. The New Year's dinner at the Ayinger's Inn at the back of the hotel was excellent - and lucky that we booked it in advance as everything in Munich was completely full.

The hotel is located in five minutes walking distance from Marienplatz, the central square of the city. Marienplatz may be easily reached from the airport by train.
Location is the best you could wish - the most attractions are in walking distance.
Standard rooms are not very big but perfectly clean and quite spacious to fill comfortable.
Breakfast offers you a wide choice of high quality food, I think everyone will find something up to his taste there.
A little bit expensive but it worth it.
Definitely will stay again here.

We spent Christmas at The Platzl and it is one of the best hotels in Munich. It is centrally located in the "allstadt" or old town just 2 blocks from the Marienplatz. More on that in a minute. The Platzl has been lovingly restored and boasts sparkling clean rooms fully equipped with free Wi-Fi, mini bars, safe and a full bath. Rooms were modest in size and I would say about average for a European hotel room. On Chrismas eve the staff brought a plate of German cookies and fruit to out room which really hit the spot around 10 pm. The lobby had a beautiful tree decorated with authentic German ornaments made of straw.We were able to get a great price through booking.com that included a fairly extensive breakfast buffet with hot food and TONS of yummy breads rolls pastry and cheeses. Yogurt and fresh fruit as well. In fact you can make your own Mimosas with the Deuchesec ( dry champagne ) and fresh oj from the buffet or settle for a hot cappuccino and croissant. Great way to start your day of touring in Munich and beyond.
I can not say enough about the staff at the front desk who can get you directions anywhere, make you dinner reservations and I imagine would do just about anything that was asked of them. I must mention Felix who is a wonderfully jovial bilingual fellow who each morning would mail our postcards off to America. Now he knows the city and can tell you where to eat or how to catch the S8. The whole staff was awesome.
The Platzl is a short walk to the Hoffbrau house (around the corner) which can be rowdy at night but is just authentic german fun!! Beer and pretzels. Is there anything better? Carbs with carbs! The hotel also has two fabulous restaurants. Ayingers is pub-ish style food with a German flare. Their home brew was particularly good, fresh on tap and potent! The other restaurant is more formal with a lovely vaulted ceiling and traditional German fare. Pricey but delicious. Small and quaint. So if you want that quiet candlelit dinner you will love Pfistermuhle. For a night cap there is a nice bar just off the lobby.
Finally,( I know it's long but so much to say) the Marienplatz is just steps from the hotel. Maybe 2 blocks. This is the old center of town and laden with gothic buildings, churches and a world famous Glockenspiel. There are shops to explore and if you wander another two blocks to the Viktuelenmart ( not sure on that spelling) you can grab a hot wurst and a cold beer all while hanging out with some friendly German folks who we found to be warm and helpful. But you gotta try the wurst cuz it really is the best.
One tip I can offer? Ask for a "quiet" room on the courtyard as for us 50-something's the sound of the Hoffbrau house is loud with the windows open. The Platzl really had everything we needed and more! Auf wiedersehen!

Room Tip: "Inner" rooms are away from the main streets and more or less in a courtyard. We slept wit...

Perfect location and lovely hotel for a Christmas stay. We could walk anywhere. My favorite memory is walking through the park on Christmas morning. The Christmas market was two blocks away with a safe and easy walk. We brought our little family dog and felt perfectly welcomed. Everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful. Comfy and cozy with plenty of room.

Stayed for 3 nights during Christmas Holiday. The room is average in size and old but very well maintained and clean. Breakfast is very good with plenty of choices and several varieties of muesli (something special to me). Location is perfect, 3-minute-walk to Marienplatz, Maximillianstrasse and the shopping area. Hofbrauhaus and Hardrock Cafe are right behind the hotel. Sometimes we heard noises from the Hofbrauhaus but not disturbing. Wifi is free and very good connection.

Perfect location for a Munich holiday. The staff are most helpful, friendly and competent. We had to most enjoyable Christmas dinner at their restaurant. The breakfast is one of the best spreads we have encountered - fresh, tasty and great selection.

This was our second Christmas in Munich and the Platzl made us feel so at home. The people at the desk, Liza and Felix, (only names I remembered) helped us tremendously with getting us in our rooms, finding restaurants, directions, etc. We had an inside room which was quiet on the 2nd floor and the whole hotel is spotless. Loved eating at their restaurants, Ayinger's being especially well suited to our plebian tastes. Do make reservations so you aren't disappointed. The garage is very convenient but not for the faint of heart being under the hotel with a few steep and sharp turns - nothing insurmountable though. The location is perfect for the Christkindl Markt in the Marienplatz, eating and shopping. The victualmarkt is a treasure unto itself as well. Lots of jolly people enjoying the festive season. Thanks, Platzl for the wonderful food, accommodations and hospitality!

Room Tip: Our room overlooking the back courtyard was quiet but might overlook a beergarden in the warm months...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
You place great importance on quality and want to be right in the middle of Munich's city life? Then Platzl Hotel Munich and its culinary offerings are the address for you. This traditional four-star Superior Hotel and its two popular restaurants - the Pfistermuhle and Wirtshaus Ayingers - are located in the heart of Munich's old city, right beside the famous Hofbrauhaus. And just a short walk from the Marienplatz, the Bavarian State Opera, Maximilianstrasse and Viktualienmarkt. The Inselkammer family and its team combine Bavarian hospitality and traditional style elements with a modern lifestyle and state-of-the-art technology. It begins with a warm welcome in the foyer, continues through the 167 guest rooms and only ends when you leave Munich through the city's historic quarter. This combination of tradition and modernity also creates the ideal setting for private celebrations such as birthdays or weddings, but also conferences and seminars. Your visit should also include a taste of the culinary offerings at our two restaurants - because gastronomy has a long tradition at the Platzl. As early as the beginning of the last century, the Platzl stage was graced not just by cabaret giants such as Karl Valentin. Good Bavarian food also made repeat appearances, being served to guests before and after the performances. Today, the Pfistermuhle is synonymous with sophisticated Bavarian cuisine - at Munich's only preserved city mill. Since the year 2000, people from Munich and elsewhere have enjoyed the hearty regional dishes at Wirtshaus Ayingers, which is next door, while the charming stores and eateries in the "Platzlgassen" add to the lively atmosphere in the Platzl. ... more   less
