We rented one of the apartments, across the street from the hotel, to capture the feeling of being a local Müncher. Located on the first floor, the apartment had neither elevator access nor air conditioning. Still, it was clean, well equipped, and spacious. A desk provided a reasonable space upon which to work, as well as a complimentary laptop (IBM Thinkpad) and clock/ipod docking station. A small balcony had sitting area and table, overlooking a quiet, shared courtyard. The kitchen area had a table for 4, fridge, microwave, stove, sink, as well as cutlery, china, basic utensils ... sufficient to eating in if you prefer. The breakfast buffet across the street at the hotel was included with our room rate; it was basic but enjoyable and included an assortment of hot/cold food, bread, coffee/espresso, etc.. Couldn't ask for a much better location, a block from major sites, public transport, many restaurants and small shops, and parks. We visited the rooftop patio of the hotel but it was mostly unremarkable (basic, small, and overlooking many rooftops) -- although the view was useful in gaining an orientation to nearby points of interest. I'd rent an apartment again although perhaps on not so hot a day!
