“Great, Great, Great, Great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

Stayed here for a week on a family holiday in august. Lovely hotel, very clean and inviting. The staff were most helpful and pleasant, it was never too much trouble to answer our numerous questions, it helps we feel if you speak to people how you would like to be spoken to yourself. Communication was not a problem, we tried to use our limited German but their English was excellent so we didn't bother and we straight away felt very at ease. The breakfast buffet was superb with plenty of choice especially if you are willing to try something different. The air conditioning coped well with the 30 to 35 degree heat and although the bedroom was on the street side noise was not an issue. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was well laid out, modern and compact but this was not a problem for myself who at 16 stone found there to be plenty of room in the shower. The bar was well stocked, welcoming and comfortable. Can't comment on the sauna as it was so hot we didn't need to use it and I can't stand them anyway.
The position of the hotel was ideal for the excellent public transport system which we could not fault (did not need to hire a car) on the underground we felt very safe even late at night unlike London where we won't use the underground due to previous experiences, we would suggest you look up how the ticket system works before you go there. Tickets are sold from many establishments such as the hotel, newsagent stalls etc as well as ticket machines and If you have any problems the German people will go out of their way to help you.
As to Munich itself, there is plenty to do for all tastes, more museums and palaces than you can fit in in a weeks holiday, you must try the beer gardens and Bavarian beer halls and don't be put off by the thought of sausages and sauerkraut its great. Best thing to do is buy a good guide and do some research. The only reason we rated the hotel very good and not excellent was just because of there being no restaurant but there are enough places to eat in Munich you won't be bothered. The wife says that she would most definitely go back there again and would stop in the Prinzregent am Friedensengel.

I loved the charm of this hotel. We went for a December weekend break and loved it. Rooms are comfortable, staff are very helpful. Breakfast was of high quality with a wide range to suit most tastes. I was pleased with the wide variety of breads, eggs to order and good smoked salmon. The sauna was a nice surprise and great after being out in the cold all day! Being located on the edge of town was fine for us, the transport links are excellent everywhere and the staff are very helpful with maps/directions. It only takes 5 mins to get to anywhere in the centre. If you want a hotel with character for a short break, this is a great option.

We wanted to stay in the city center, but everything was booked by the time I made my reservations. The Prinzregent looked close enough to the city center and I liked the idea of getting out of the fray, so we decided to book there. It turned out to be a great decision. It is super easy to take the tram into the city center from the Prinzregent. Also, because we were there during the Christmas season, it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of all the tourists. The hotel is near the English Garden and it is absolutely beautiful in the winter. I don't know if we would have taken the time to go through the Garden had we not been staying close by it. I loved walking through the garden at night -- seeing kids going down hills on their sleds, the glow of the snow from the city lights -- it was my favorite experience from our entire trip to Germany during Christmas. Anyhoo . . . back to the Prinzregent. The breakfast is spectacular. Great staff, very accommodating -- no problem getting a couple of extra pillows or help with directions.

First the good stuff. The hotel is very clean, in what seemed like a safe neighborhood, the staff was extremely helpful, and the breakfast buffet was delicious. The problem is that this hotel is somehow a four-star hotel and for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why! Having stayed at four-stars (as well as 2-, 3-, and 5- star hotels around Europe), this property truly shouldn't have been classified as a 4-star. After staying here, we then stayed at a 3-star in Ingolstadt that was as good as or better than this property. The prices were definitely more for a four-star than a three-star, therefore made this a HIDEOUS value proposition. Our junior suite was €235 and my daughter's comfort room was €175. If my Jr Suite was the price of the comfort room (or even a little more), then I'd have been much more satisfied.

We have stayed in several other hotels in Munich and this one is one of the best. Location was a 10 minute walk from U4/U5 Max Weber station. We arrived about 10AM and our room was ready in 10 minutes which was a nice surprise. Rooms were small but very clean and priced appropriately. Staff was great and so was the breakfast. We also liked Exquisit but it was booked and is typically more expensive.

The hotel is near Europaplatz, 300m by foot to the tram 19 that in 4 stops permit you to be in the city center.
The hotel has also the tram 18 in front of it, and it's at 200m from the U2 line stop (underground - Metro).
The hotel is characteristic, and the entrance seems a pub.
The room in which I was it's very nice, not too big, and not too small. It contains the bed (queen size), the tv set, minibar and also a table with 2 chairs.
The bathroom is a little small, just the minimum size to include the shower box, the wc and the washbasin.
The hotel is clean the personnel very professional and kind. I asked for some information and they provided me the best possible solution.
