“The best and inexpensive place to stay in Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Me and my partner spent over two weeks in this hotel. It cannot be more conveniently located:from airport with S-8 to Marienplatz & then U-# for 2 stops to Universitaet. We toook advantage of the "Bayern ticket", a bargain at euro 26 for 2 & went to Ulm and Augsburg for the day. The rr station is only 15 minute from the hotel by subway and the ticket we bought was valid on the subway. Mrs. Clauss, the owner of the hotel speaks perfect English and serves superb breakfasts. Check the place on fb if you don't believe me.

Room Tip: The hotel is small, we stayed in room no. 36 which was quiet and spacious.

Hotel-Pension Am Siegestor truly is a home from home. A lovely old building full of charm and warmth is made all the more homey thanks to its owner, Monika Clauss, who greets all her guests literally with open arms.

The rooms are spotless, the breakfasts copious, staff charming. Frau Clauss is not only a fabulous hostess but also an inexhaustive one-woman show for tourist information, weather reports (!!) and transport advice. And the location is absolutely perfect. Bang in the middle of Munich with the U-Bahn just around the corner, you can get to just about anywhere in Bavaria without any difficulty at all - and indeed, cross over to Austria, too, on a day-trip.

This is our second stay at Hotel-Pension Am Siegestor and we would definitely go again.
I couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Room Tip: They are all good!

I definitely recommend the Am Siegestor. Keeping in mind that this is a reasonably cheap guest house, it was a lovely place to stay. Its best feature is the wonderfully warm welcome you will receive from the host Monika; after staying in impersonal hotels and hostels, it is so refreshing to feel looked after and at home. The location of the guesthouse is also a definite plus. It is right by the Englischer Garten which is great for any number of outdoor activities. Also, there are plenty of nearby restaurants and bars in the surrounding streets. Don't be concerned about not being right in the city centre, it is a short 10 minute walk or two stops on the underground (the guesthouse is right around the corner from the Universitat station which takes you directly to Marienplatz, giving you access to the Hauptbahnhof and from there, long distance and regional trains). The room was clean and comfortable, the television worked, and the free wifi had good and reliable signal. Breakfast, included in the roomrate, was typical guesthouse fare (bread, ham, cheese, condiments, cereal, boiled eggs) but there was a wide selection and it was of good quality. I really enjoyed the Am Siegestor and I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We stayed here on our first trip to Munich this December, as we chose to experience the Christmas markets, and all the other delights Munich has to offer. This really is a lovely place to stay, where guests are made to feel welcome from the minute they arrive. Frau Clauss gives a personal but professional touch to the whole place. We would definitely choose to stay again if we were to vist Munich.

Room Tip: Rooms looking over back may be quieter, but it goes without saying the ones at front have better vie...

We absolutely loved our stay at the Hotel Pension Am Siegestor! This is a gem in such a lovely city! My parents and sister had a room with a private bath. The three of us had a room with no bath which was no problem. Our room had a sink and there were two showers and three toilets down the hall. The breakfast was very nice. Everything was so clean. The view from our room was of the Univisity. There is an amazing pizza place that I will have to remember to review right down the street. The subway is right around the corner as well. Great location, great place, fabulous price!

Munich was first stop on our trip throughout Europe and we only stayed two nights. I wish we stayed longer. Pension felt like home, and city had so much to offer.
We were welcomed like a family member, treated very well. Room was spotless, breakfast had everything you would want, including eggs, unlimited coffee, juice, bread, cheeses and so much more.
Monika Clauss takes care of your every wish, and I don't think "NO" is in her vocabulary.
We hope to travel to Munich soon and will stay there again

The hotel is located near the university and the central Leopold Strasse with a lot of restaurants and cheerful students. One metro stop from Marian plats. The owner is super nice and super friendly. The breakfast was great. The rooms are large and very clean. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Munich.
