“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2010

My mind boggles as to why on a backpacking tour we decided to choose this hotel in Munich. It is definitely not walkable from the main station (which we found out to our weary exasperation) but accessible via 2 metro stations. The Nymphenburg road is quite a posh area, but kind of desolate after 7-8 PM. The next bit of disappointment came when we were put in a room with twin beds (when we had specifically booked and pre-requested for a double bed room) and the receptionists not willing to accommodate (probably also not being able to, owing to rooms being full). Internet is expensive in the rooms (wifi), but a single desktop at the reception is available for this purpose. Good dinner options are few in the vicinity too - apart from McDonald's and an Indian restaurant (next door). Breakfast was good, though, with a nice spread. But, ultimately, could not help feeling that we could have been better off elsewhere.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2010

Stayed for 3 nights during Octoberfest. Disappointed with the room - very small and certainly not a brightly painted one that other reviewers have mentioned. Room was at back of hotel with a nice little balcony overlooking courtyard. Bed was perhaps the most uncomfortable one I have ever slept in - choose twin beds rather than a double. Double was extremly small more like a large single. Breakfast was very good but although they advertise breakfast until 10.30am - staff started clearing away before 10.00. Bacon and eggs finished by 9.45 one morning we were there and while there was plenty of other choice surely the hot food should still be available. Staff very friendly and location very good being close to Ubahn and in a nice neighbourhood.

I enjoyed my brief stay in the Hotel Nymphenburg, I do think the price of £170 for a double room for one night is excessive, it may well be comparable with other properties in the city.

The hotel is convenient to the city centre, a short ten minute walk to the nearest underground station, and 2 stops to Marienplatz.

Breakfast was included in the room rate, internet access is available free at reception or pay wifi in the bedrooms. The manager and staff are friendly and helpful. There are a number of cafe / restaurants nearby with a lovely Italian restaurant directly opposite the hotel.

This is the perfect hotel! Everyone is so helpful and friendly, rooms are cleaned every day, there is even an internet access in the lobby. Breakfast buffet is superb, U-Bahn (subway) and metro-bus stop are only minutes away from hotel (5 minute ride to the Marienplatz), and there are also a lot of restaurants nearby (bavarian, indian, greek, McDonalds etc.) I arrived at about 6 am and they gave me a room, even though the reservation started at 3 pm! This is the place where I will be staying when traveling to Munich again. I was in room 405, single, non-smoking room, in august 2010.

Review of single room 510.

Couldn't have been happier with the reception I got. Polite and friendly, but not overly so. All staff I met gave me that sort of ah-want-you-to-have-a-great-stay feeling the whole time I was there.

The room was spazzy in its decor - magnesium-blue walls with lots of colour splash which got me ready for a highly-sexed and bammy night.

There is a teeny-weeny balcony that overlooks a massive rectangular-shaped residential courtyard, with pine trees down it's inner perimiter along the length of the back of an Asian restaurant, which pumps out lustfull smells all night long. I got intense lung-filling bellows of lemon grass, scallops, coriander, marinated and grilled meats and white tights.

Bed was superb - comfy and encouraging a restful night's sleep. Bathroom was outstanding. Shower was reservedly on the small side, however, the room cost 57 Euros including breakfast, so any complaint there is only because there's nothing else complaining about.

Notable about the bathroon was the toilet. The flush on it went on and on and on. Perhaps a good 15-18 litres of water for a single, highly-impressive and powerful flush. As a result, this baby could cope with the loads from a platoon of special forces after a night on the bend. I gave it everything I had after two full Greek meals from the nearby Taverna Pavlos, and it came out trumps - not a single track mark.

Breakfast was standard I'm afraid, but cosy because it was pretty full so I got talking to a mature Korean girl at my table who shared my views on the sanitation.

I'd go there to the same room again and again, but I'm not so sure guests on the other side had a such a quiet night. It's a busy main street and if it's hot and sticky you've got no choice but to open the window.

First-time up it's a JA JA.

Nice stay, good value. Quiet area, close to the metro. Walkable to Oktoberfest (15-20 minute walk) or downtown. Shower is a bit cramped. Color selection strange/funky... yellow room with red (blood like spatter) on the walls. Bed was comfy.

We wanted reasonable accomodations for Oktoberfest at short notice (booked in July and there weren't many choices left) and this fit the bill.
