“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for a week. The staff were very helpful and courteous. I didn't like the bed coverings as they were too warm for me, though that is a personal preference. The rooms( we had both a double and a single) were clean, and comfortable. The cleaning staff were quick and thorough, and the amenities comparable to most hotels. You got free Internet for a 24 hour period which was enough for me. We didn't try the sauna but did eat in the excellent pfistermuehle restaurant. The location for the Christmas markets could not be surpassed.

We stayed at the Platzl Hotel for 3 night in January. The hotel is really the perfect place to stay as you can walk to the Hofbrau House, the Marienplatz,, the gorgeous Viktualienmarkt, the main train staion etc. The rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were great ( champagne on offer every morning!) The hotel staff were very obliging and happy to help with any request we had. We would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for one night at the Platzl Hotel in January. Very nice hotel, very helpful and friendly staff. The hotel is in a great location for exploring the centre of Munich. I was really impressed with the recreation area, which has an amazing sauna/steam room area and a relaxation area that makes you feel as though you are in another era. Breakfast was also very nice.

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.
