“THE BEST IN MUNICH....LOOK NO FURTHER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This hotel is situated on a quiet side street of one of the most prestigious areas of Munich. A short walk to the trains for a 10 min ride to Downtown Munich. Great Restaurants (German, French, Steak) all in short walking distance of the Hotel.
Very nicely decorated, very clean and just little touches that made you feel so welcomed.
Sebastian and Alexandra are the very best host. You feel like "family". Breakfast was another treat. Fresh breads, meats, eggs, vegetables all perfect...One more treat that I loved "Latte Macchiato" at breakfast.
This place will not disappoint, you just have to understand the next place you stay probably will not match up to this standard. Sebastian and Alexandra, Thank you for an incredible stay.

We only were in Munich for one night and staying here was the best choice. The location is great, only a tram ride to downtown Munich. The hotel was clean and pretty typical of a European hotel. What made this place great was Sebastian and Alexandra the owners. They provided great info on what to do and how to get there, it was like talking to family and getting the low down on what is worthwhile to see. Wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely go back and stay here again.

If you map the location of this hotel it seems like it may be too far to explore Munich. How wrong you would be. The Laim S2 trains top is a 15 minute walk from the hotel and a 10 minute ride into the city center. The tram is even closer (about a 5 minute walk) but a little longer of a journey. The best part about the location is the tranquility of staying in a suburb near the Nymphenburg Palace. Aleksandra and Sebastian are wonderful and helpful hosts. Sebastian will talk your heads of if you let him. And Dicky the dog is quite the charmer.
Laim has a few restaurants in the area that scracth most of the itches of any guests (Greek, Steak, Italian, French, etc.). Best of all, the hotel is within walking distance to the Hirschgarden which is the largest Beer garden in Munich and serves the quite-potent AugistnierBrau.
The only negatives were that everythging in the room needed to be opened by a different key (a kind of B&B charm if that interest you) and that the double mattress are two twins pushed together that easily slide apart.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms or bad rooms, as you are in a suburb where you can sleep with the windows wi...

This hotel is an excellent choice if you are planning a visit to Munich. The hotel looks like it is on the outside of Munich-which it is but with the location by the palace and garden comes tranquility that you do not find in the downtown city area. There is much to do inthis area and other sights in downtown are easily accessed.

The owners Sebastian and Aleanxdra cannot do enough to make your stay at their hotel one of you most enjoyable.

Since there are many reviews here are some tips if you are coming to this hotel for the first time:
1. This is a historical hotel and many times Americans are used to the large hotels found in chain hotels--if you want a large room--pay the difference and get a room for 3-4 people but the 2 person rooms are very clean and adequate just smaller than Hitlon or Marriott usual chain rooms
2. Breakfast at the hotel is excellent and has a Bavarian Flavor
3. The trams 16 and 17 are only a short walk from the hotel--the S1 can get you from the airport--get off at Laim--you may want to make a google map with directions from the train stop to the hotel --in both English and German--the walk is about 10 mintues....stay out of the bike lane with your suit cases or you might get run over...LOL....there are also buses and taxis to get to the hotel and Sebastian and his staff can email directions
4. buy the group tourist ticket if there is more than one of you....at the airport ....there is a 3 day ticket and other options--they will also sell you 2 tickets--we needed 4 days of tickets --so we purchased a one way group ticket for the S1 on the day we arrrived --the a 3day group ticket--they sold both tickets at the same time at the Bahn ticket airport both--just make sure your 3 day ticket is makrked tostart the next day
5. have euros--many of the smaller more traditional non-tourist restaurants do nto take credit cards
6. There is a regional train from Munich to Salzburg,Austria that is very easy to use and the ticekts are every cheap ---the hotel is great at arranging this---NOTE: We can share with you from our experience in Salzburg, the ticket office -even though they speak English--does not always give the right information....the train schedule -which is in German--has abbreviations--
RE means regional RJ or ICE are different trains-with different tickets Both the information and ticket offices told us the platform and train back to Munich--unforutnately it was not the same type of train we rode into Salzburg on--we had to pay again--the trip was great any way and well worth the extra cost...now we know how to read the schedule
7. Tours by Locals has some great Munich tours that are private--get a guide who is German or who has been in the country for over 10 years ...this will help you get a better feel for the area and culture
8. If you are American--allow for airport time and many times there are double screenings at teh Munich airport..and make sure you keep all your borading passes if you are going to multiple countries or your flight schedules...this will help out processing as some EU countries did not stamp passports and this will be questioned by German custom authorities

Room Tip: see above--if youa re disabled--make sure you let Sebastion and his staff know when you book under c...

We stayed the four day weekend over Thanksgiving 2012. Our family room was so spacious, the staff warm and informative and the location safe and quiet! A top notch visit from arrival to checkout! We would highly recommend and will definitely return!

We stayed at Hotel Laimer Hof for two nights in November, 2012. The hotel is in a quiet residential area outside of Munich, in Nypmphburg. There are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance, including the large beer garden, and the palace is only two blocks away. The hotel staff, including the owners, are excellent and could not be more helpful. The breakfast was nicely done, and the rooms are nice, very clean, though they tend to be a little small. Car parking is free, and is located alongside the hotel. Wi Fi worked well through out the hotel, though there was a two hour limit, which is going to be improved by December, 2012. The trip to downtown Munich is a short, simple, 15 min tram ride. We are very glad we stayed at Hotel Laimer Hof, and would highly recommend this well run hotel.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, but the owners will help get your bags up the stairs.

We were EXTREMELY pleased with our stay! From the time you check in the staff is extremely friendly and helpful with any questions you may have. Their location is outside the main city area, but it is still easy to access everything from the subway. We enjoyed the Nymphenburg area greatly. Walking distance to Nymphenburg Palace (gorgeous!), a beer garden, and many wonderful little restaurants. You may also catch the tram to the city, which we enjoyed from the subway.

The rooms are small, although I understand there are larger ones from what we had, but that's Europe and is a fun experience. There are no safes in the rooms, but the staff will lock anything you may want behind the desk. Breakfast is delicious and fun to dine with other hotel guests in a family-style room. Staff is extremely friendly and able to answer any question you may have, and offer recommendations. This was a nice escape from the city life. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here. Note that the front desk is not staffed from 11pm-5 or 6am, but the doors are locked and only guests can access the building so we felt very secure and safe.
