“Nice hotel, nice staff in a beautiful city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This hotel was great! The building is historic and tastefully decorated. Very clean and comfortable room. The owner/manager Monika Clauß was very kind, attentive and it was helpful to us that she speaks English. The breakfast was pleasant and tasted good. She set out yogurt, granola, breads, spreads and also asked if we wanted meats, cheeses, eggs. The location of the hotel was great. It was near Marienplatz, the University, as well as lots of historic buildings and a park. I would definitely stay here again.

Pleasingly old-fashioned (WLAN is included, though), family-run hotel, well located and with a very friendly landlady. Reasonably priced, especially if compared to other hotels in Munich. Not all rooms have en suite bathrooms, but the shared bathrooms are absolutely clean. Breakfast isn't overwhelming but absolutely acceptable.

We stayed for 3 nights and found the place friendly and very conveniently located.
The room was large, but did not have private facilities which did not pose a problem. The bathroom was across the hall.
The breakfast was good and the owner was very attentive and helpful.
For the price it is very good value.
My only comment would be that I was not sure what floor the hotel was on when I arrived. The signage did not say.

We liked the convenience to airport and main rr station; the quality of breakfast; the friendliness of the owner and that she speaks English.

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.
