“not what it seems”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

we booked this hotel based on the photos etc shown on website. the site turned out to be overlooking the theresienwiese park, which is just a large semi surfaced space, and not really a park. the hotel was a lot less well maintained than shown in pictures. it also turned out to be a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel. there were no meals available and when we asked for a cup of tea, the receptionist was shocked that we could even ask for one! but eventually, we were given one.
bedrooms were comfortable. but when we asked for a small bed for our 4 year old handicapped grandchild, we were told that that it was normal for such a child to sleep in the bed with their parents. we had in fact asked for one when booking two months earlier.
altogether, a disappointing visit.

The hotel is in very good location near the theresienwiese park (octoberfest place) and 5 min walk to the U train station. Only one stop from Munich Central station (Hauptbanhauf) and two stops from Karlsplatz and walking via neuhauser street (like la Rabla) you are in Marienplatz the center of Munich. Now about the hotel. We stay in second floor and the hotel is without elevator. It is old fashion hotel like traditional houses with wooden floor in the rooms. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are large. The breakfast is good and the breakfast room very beautiful with nice view to the park and last the staff is very friendly and helpful.
With bayern ticket 29 euros (2-5 person) we went in one day to Regensburg and after to Nuremberg and coming back at night. The next day with other bayern ticket we went to Salzburg Austria. The bavarian train system is very easy and you can go anywhere from the Central Station to any bavarian town or other place.

Room Tip: Rooms in front of the hotel have view to the park.

The manager of the hotel would not give me a confirmation of my reservation and room price.
Then when my son asked him about the rate he quoted him Euro 10.00 more.
I dislike dishonest people.
When I asked him about the safe in my room, he said that he would show me how to open it.
When I asked him again the next day, he said that it was broken. Actually every room had a broken safe. Why lie?

Only one stop from the Hauptbahnnhauf, this hotel has three accommodations. The Park Hotel farther away and the pension in downtown doesn't seem all that nice. Located at the Theresienwiese station, it is about a 5 - 10 minute walk up a sloping hill next to a giant field/parking lot and on a larger street. Relatively quiet, this hotel offers a nice breakfast for about 5 Euros extra. The staff is friendly, but make sure you do your own research. The manager told us that all the museums were closed for the Christmas weekend (25th and 26th). A stop at the tourist information in downtown told us otherwise. A half dozen were open on the 25th and almost all of the museums were open on the 26th. The safes in at least two of the rooms do not work. When we asked the manager, he said it was because the battery was low. In both rooms, the safe digital display told us otherwise - battery HIGH. He never bothered to fix them. He was professional, friendly, but also defensive. However, I would recommend this hotel for it's price and the breakfast.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem pretty spacious.

We stayed here in October (9-11th, 2011) and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very clean and breakfast was very nice (and the breakfast room was lovely). While perhaps not the newest and most modern, it was a very nice hotel - lots of charm and character. The key was not your usual card, it was an actual key with a heavy fob with the room number on it! It is right across the street from the Octoberfest grounds (though it was already over when we got there), just a few minutes walk from the train station, so it was also about a15-20 minute walk to the Marionplatz, which is where all the shopping and attractions are located. Staff were as helpful as they could be, which made for a nice stay. Thanks!

Ignore the bad rating - it baffles me where it came from. Like most hotels in germany, this one is very clean, comfortable and affordable. The breakfest is excellent, the rooms are spacious and spotless, and the staff is helpful. It's a 5 minute walk to the subway and a 30 minute walk to town. Only a high maintenance whiner would not like this place.

Plus: It is like a 2 min. walk to Oktoberfest grounds.
Negatives: It was a dive! 229 euros a night for a dirty room that looked like someone had set mini-fires on the floor. I didn't go barefoot in the room my whole stay. It looked like it was a lovely hotel several decades ago but it has been completely let go...I felt like I was staying in Hotel California from the Eagles song.
Munich has excellent public transportation that runs until 2 a.m. (Oktoberfest closes at midnight). My friend got a much nicer placer for MUCH cheaper that was only 4 metro stops away.
