“Old style hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This hotel is in very central location of Munich. The staff is very friendly. I really admire breakfasts and also timing since on Sundays you can enjoy your breakfast till noon.
The room was small and a bit dark but clean.

Easy location from airport, and close to Marianplatz station. Behind the hotel is the Hoffbrauhaus which is very authentic and a warm atmosphere. The hotel is very traditional, and the first impression is that your custom is important to the hotel. it is understated and in my opinion classy. The rooms are nice but compact (small) and have stayed in a single room and double rooms. One thing which I like is that there rooms were very clean, in particular the bathroom. Always nice! Breakfast is really lovely, and ensure you make time to enjoy what is on offer. The team are dressed traditionally, and are very helpful. The hotel is certainly not in the value range, but that said, for the location, the service, and the overall package, I think it worth while. One thing to note however, is that with the hoffbrauhaus behind the hotel, it can get a little noisey, and if you go to bed early or are a light sleeper it may be better to have room at the front / side of the hotel. Not a problem for me, but could be an issue if you are travelling with young children, I have stayed in the hotel on 4 occasions, and will rebook for my next trip to Munich. One final point, for the Christmas shopper, the market was situated near to the hotel, as is the Cathedral and Rathaus.

Excellent hotel in such a fantastic location. Just a couple short blocks from the Marienplatz station with direct connection to the airport and Hauptbahnhof. Near some good restaurants and bars, as well as tourist and historical sites.

Checking in, service was so incredibly welcoming after the long flight, and the English was very good. My room was small, but comfortable. I was only spending one night, so it was perfect for that, but anything longer might be a bit tight, especially if I was spending some time in my room (i.e. not just using it as a place to sleep). The view from my room, however, was just so fantastic, looking over the church steeples and the sunset.

I slept too late for breakfast, unfortunately, so I cannot comment on that. I had a couple drinks in the bar, which had friendly service but only a couple of mediocre beer choices. WiFi was free and fast, which is great for a hotel in city center.

Would not hesitate to come back!

We stayed for three nights in a standard room with everything we needed for a short stay. The room was clean, the staff polite and helpful, location - perfect, breakfast the best we have ever had in a hotel! If we'll have an opportunity to visit Munich again, we won't waste the time trying to find another hotel - only Platzl!

A traditional hotel which provides the highest standards of hospitality and comfort. A perfect location in the old city of Munich. The staff are wonderful and very professional. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have experienced worldwide. Excellent reception and welcome. Very near the famous restaurants, bier halls and markets. Shopping right on your doorstep. If you are traveling with heavy luggage form MUC take the S-Bahn to the Central Station and taxi to the hotel.
The quieter rooms are located on the courtyard and these can be reserved on-line.

Two night stay during a business trip. Fantastic location and very friendly and professional staff without being overbearing. Rooms are not overly large for a long stay but very comfortable and modern with a quality feel. Bar in hotel is small, not much atmosphere but with so many bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood, why would you stay in the hotel? Sauna and Steam room are good. Would recommend for a business or couples and friends.

Room Tip: Not sure which side my room was on but there was a bit of noise from the revellers on the street aro...
