This hotel has a few quirks and isn't for everybody. Otherwise, it's a very nice hotel in a great location that isn't too expensive for Munich. It's clean, modern, a very good breakfast is included, and the staff tries hard to be helpful. The location is great as it's close to the Marienplatz, beer garden, good shopping, good restaurants, and public transit. Essentially, it's in the middle of the action. Really convenient for seeing everything.
Our room was a good size, the bed was good quality, there was a good computer/work desk, there were curtains, sheers, and metal shutters that could be raised and lowered for more privacy and sound protection (which seemed weird to me but they worked, so there's that). I love that they have it set up for you to put your room key in a slot near the front door to turn on the lights in your room and when you leave the room, you take the key and all the lights are turned off. It's energy conscious and slick. The only clear downside of the room was the AC, which didn't cool the room as well as we liked. One quirk of the room was that the room was separated from the bathroom by frosted glass and the door to the bathroom was a sliding door that didn't quite close all the way. If you're a shy bathroom user, you won't like this. If you trust your partner/roommate/spouse or tend to leave the bathroom door open anyway, nothing to worry about. Another quirk which seemed to be a German thing rather specific to this hotel was that the pillows weren't at all firm. If you're German, you're fine. If you're American, hey, you're the one that came here, not the other way around.
The bathroom is a very good size. It's very stylishly appointed. The lighting is ample, which is a particular preference of mine. I prefer a lot of light. There is a tub and a shower in the bathroom. The shower is roomy and the tub is pretty big. The sink and counter in our room were one continuous piece with plenty of room for toiletries. As well, the floor of the bathroom was heated. Another slick feature of the hotel room.
The internet was free and a good speed. The quirky thing with the internet access was that you had to log back in every time you wanted to use it, even if you'd put your computer or phone to sleep for just a few minutes. That's the kind of thing that drives me a little nutty, but, once you logged back in, service was fast and reliable. And, they provided a laptop computer in the room to use as well.
The elevator was clearly a much later add on to the hotel. It wasn't very big, a European style, it seems, and it didn't stop directly at any of the floors except the lobby. When the door opened to our stop, we then had to go down half a flight of stairs to our floor. This wasn't a big problem for us but it might be inconvenient for some and seems a little odd.
Finally, this hotel seems to be ground zero for gay Munich. The local Pride parade takes place right down the street. The hotel itself has a men's bathhouse on the ground floor. There is literature about gay activities in Munich in the lobby and a quasi-shrine to King Ludwig II of Bavaria, who, turns out, wasn't mad but gay. My wife and I joked that it wasn't a gay-friendly hotel, it was straight-friendly. There were all types of people staying at the hotel, young and old, families with young children, couples. Everyone seemed equally comfortable and welcome. If you are gay, this hotel is likely a plus. If you hate gays, this isn't the hotel for you, which is too bad for you.
