I travel to Munich every year with my family of 4 and every year we stay at the Kriemhild. This year I traveled twice to Munich in June and again in August and of course stayed at the Kriemhild. Before finding this hotel we tried other hotels and rented apartments but were never satisfied. This hotel feels like home to us for many reasons. The staff is always very friendly, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is great. In the past we stayed in the family suit 302/303 which has 1 normal sized double room and a small double room attached through a door. The benefit of this room is that it has the 2 bathrooms, which is a bonus when travelling with kids. This year we stayed in 301 and will probably never change rooms again. It was very large, had a small room for the kids with 2 twin beds, so no fighting, and the bathroom was huge with a bathtub. Both suites (301 and 302/303) had air conditioning which was great in August.
When I traveled in June I was without my kids but with other family members and was able to see what a normal sized double room looks like. We stayed on the 1st floor at the beginning of the trip and the 2nd floor at the end of the trip. All the doubles I saw were a large size for a German hotel and had good bathrooms. Again, all very clean. These rooms did not have air conditioning which was not needed in June.
The Hotel is located in a great location for anyone but especially nice with kids. The park nearby, Hirschgarten has a restaurant/beergarten and the park has 3 playgrounds! Castle Nymphenburg which is close by in the other direction has huge grounds to let the kids run and it also has a restaurant/beergarten. The area is safe and clean and we always feel safe walking back from our adventures, even when it is dark. There are other restaurants in the area include a French restaurant and an Italian restaurant, both within walking distance. Also in the area are several pastry shops.
The hotel staff speak English which is great for when my German is a little rough during the first few days in Germany. The tram which takes you to downtown is only a 7 min walk away (about 3 blocks) and the front desk sells the transportation tickets. The hotel also has parking for about 7 cars for free, but if the lot is full there seems to always be parking on the street within a block.
My children look forward to returning to the Kriemhild every year because the staff is friendly and helpful. They like running up the stairs while we take the elevator. They especially love the breakfast. Often we meet interesting people at breakfast, sometimes English speaking tourists, others who are staying here while visiting family members who live in Munich, like us. Because we travel to Germany every year we have stayed in a lot of Germany hotels and this one is always our favorite. We look forward to staying here every year!! We highly recommend this hotel.
