“Fabulous location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I relied on TripAdvisor to select the proper hotel in Munich for a short business trip and was very impressed. The service was excellent - from the doorman to the waiter at breakfast. Even the single room was surprisingly spacious, though the pillows were a little flat. I was easily able to navigate the city - by foot and by train - from this location and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

You can't beat the location if you want to explore Munich on foot. The hotel was clean, staff were professional, the rooms were large and well kept. The bathrooms are large and well appointed. The breakfast was incredible and was included in the price of the room.
And there is underground parking!
Our room was on the 5th floor and we never heard any noise - but it was January and the windows were closed.
The 'spa/workout' room was interesting, but not incredibly useful if you plan to work out.
My only complaint was the pillows - they collapsed into nothing but a ball of hard feathers.

Overall, this is a GREAT hotel.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the top floors or rooms facing the interior in the summer months to avoid noise from...

Booked as a last minute business trip for a trade faire via a hotel broker website, the hotel was as a welcome end to a long day of travel and exhibition viewing. The staff are very professional and courteous on check in, check out and booking a table for dinner. The quiet double bedroom on the third floor looked over a large courtyard and the snow-covered roofs of the neighbouring buildings. It was indeed quiet, and clean, there was plenty of room and hanging space for two on a short trip, and had a modern, clean bathroom. The 5th floor sauna/steam room area was a bonus. The breakfast buffet was ample, lots of choice including some hot and local dishes (wiesswurst!) cooked to order. Only small niggles as to why I haven't given it five stars: the single duvets on the Austrian twin bed felt a little small and I would have liked a tea tray in the room. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Quiet rooms overlook the courtyard.

The Platzl is a top quality hotel in a great location; only minutes from Marienplatz and the S Bahn.
Our courtyard room was very quiet and comfortable with a really comfortable bed and lots of real pillows. Baggage unloading was easy and parking in their garage was the least expensive we've found in the city. Breakfast was included and just outstanding with great effort to avoid use of packaged products. Lobby staff was most helpful and competent. One suggestion: bring bar soap. Their environmentally-friendly squeeze bottle on the wall soap can be annoying. We will stay there again even though it's pricier than others.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are quieter than street-side rooms, especially if you want to open a window at night...

location, room size and furniture, breakfasts are excellent. Hotel looks a bit old and outdated in terms of design but very clean and wel kept.
rooms facing the street are quite noisy. we stayed for 8 days but was asked to add a security deposit or pay some in the middle. quite bizarre but were told that the message was generated automatically by the computer system.

Platzl hotel is in an ideal location in Munich. Stayed for 3 nights in December for the Christmas markets and had a great time. Good service, delicious breakfast, and room service was also very nice.

Only complaint is on check in: I arrived before check-in and they held my luggage while I went exploring. Came back about 30min after check in time and room still wasn't ready.

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.

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
