I had a sudden 5 day training trip and this was the only hotel which had a room available on such short notice on booking.com. So I didn't read any of the reviews. I didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised.
My room was a superior double (it was the only room available at the time). It was huge and extremely clean. In fact, it looked brand new. There is a small TV with a couple of english stations. The TV is weirdly located on the left side of the bed (and not in front). There is a cupboard, which when you open, the lights come on automatically. There are two robes and room slippers. There is a safe in the cupboard large enough to fit two laptops. The minibar has variety of alcohol but no snacks. There are heaters in the room as well as the bathroom. So the bathroom towels were so warm. Everytime, they did my room, they kept a couple of chocolates on the pillow.
The location is just brilliant !! Walking distance to English Garden, Marienplatz, Hofbräuhaus, St. Peter's church and Asam's church. There are loads of restaurants / shops just 5 minutes away. But the best part is that hotel is 5 minutes away from the main square and not in the main square so it is peaceful.
There is no wifi (in the room) or breakfast included in the room charge. So you have to pay for those separately. The breakfast comprised of mainly cold foods but they did prepare scambled egg upon request for no additional charge. I personally found the breakfast to be too expensive (10 euros for breads and cereal !!!). There seems to be just one restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There didn't seem to be room dining options. I could be wrong but I didn't notice an in-room menu.
The hotel staff were very friendly. Check-in and check-out was extremely quick and smooth. Printing was free. They gave me an adapter and iron / ironing board for free. Even called a lady cab driver to drop me to the airport when I was leaving. Being a single female travelling solo, this was a nice gesture from the hotel's side.
If ever, I am back in Munich, I will certainly stay here again (but maybe not opt for the expensive breakfast).
