As a result of saving my points I made a short stay in Munich to see if the city would stay on the list for a normal citybreak. Because of the reviews and the location I choose Platzl Hotel. I wasn't disappointed. The hotel is about 5 minutes from the S-bahn/U-bahn-station at Marienplatz. The staff are very friendly (everyone you'll meet) and the male staff from the check-in even said hello with my name when I came back from visiting the city. The doorman is also friendly and opens the door for you when you leave the hotel. You just feel very welcome.
I had a middle solo-room at the front at the fitfh floor. If you close the window you'll hear nothing. During the night I heard a couple of times some drunk guys outside. It wasn't that annoying and I could live with it but when I return for a citybreak I will choose a solo-room at the back. It's a little bit more expensive but maybe better.
The room was big enough for a cityhotel. I had the bed, a desk with minibar and chair and also a chair by the window. I had enough space to sit and walk around. The minibar was well filled but I missed a bottle of still water. There were enough bottles with water but all with gas. I asked the reception and could get a bottle at the bar. It was a nice cooled bottle for the warm weather. The TV was great. You had about 50 channels with channels from Germany, England (BBC, ITV and newschannels), Russia, Italy, Arabic, China and Netherlands. It was plenty. The only weird thing about the tv was that the sound of the TV in the bathroom wasn't muted when I turned the sound off in the room. Especially when you want to watch early and don't want to disturbe the neighbours. Maybe I did something wrong. But it hasn't any influence on the review. The room was clean and the bed good. The pilows were too soft but I could get a pillow with support which was good.
The breakfast was great. You could choose anything you want and there were even newspapers you could read.
Overall I will certainly use this hotel when I'm visiting the city as a normal citybreak.
