“Quiet, Clean, Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

This hotel is on my best list together with:

Berce Hotel Istanbul - Quiet, Clean, Friendly Staff, Super View
Relais du Postillon Antibes - Quiet, Clean, Friendly Staff (no aircondition, but big windows to open)

All of them not because of great food (breakfeasts are perfectly ok) or luxury, but laidback friendly people

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the backyard (with a balcony or terrasse) less hot and more quiet

The location of the hotel is not to be beat. Located directly in the centre of Munich, it the perfect base for sight seeing. An excellent breakfast gets your day started right! Helpful staff and clean rooms too. I'd stay here again.
We stayed in a standard room for 1 night, which was clean, but quite small, even for European rooms. We upgraded to a premium room later in our stay, which was huge. Both rooms were very clean.

This is a wonderful hotel with a Bavarian feel and attitude. The staff is energetic and pleasant, they make you feel welcome and at home. The location could nt be better. You are close to the center of Munich and the Marienplatz. The Vikutalien Markt and St. Peter's church are right beside the hotel. The Jewish Museum and Syangogue are here as well. Only a few minutes walk to HofBrau House. We would highly recommend a stay here.

My daughter and I stayed at Hotel Blauer Bock after flying all night from San Francisco. The Hotel could not have been in a better location. This was our first trip to Munich, and our stay at Hotel Blauer Bock helped us fall in love with Munich. The beds, linens, and comforters felt luxurious. We felt so well taken care of and amazed that the delicious breakfast buffet was included in the price of our room. We look forward to staying here again in the future.

I was going to be in Munich on a brief research trip and wanted reasonably priced lodgings within walking distance of the Bavarian Academy of Science where I'd be working. A colleague recommended Hotel Blauer Bock, across the street from the Viktualienmarkt, 5 minutes from Marienplatz in the heart of the city, and only 5 minutes more to the Academy. It was a very good choice: the cost is fair for what you get (including free internet if you book online), I found the staff accommodating, and the breakfast is ample and satisfying (*excellent* coffee). My single room was definitely bare-bones, but I wasn't going to be in it to do more than sleep (which I did, very well) and didn't need to pay for plush extras I wasn't going to use. If you know what to expect, you won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for a great location and are not picky about rooms, then hotel blauer bock is ideal. Situated right across from the viktualienmarkt sightseeing/shopping/going out is right at your doorstep.
The rooms we had were very out- dated with old small bathrooms, although well kept and clean. Service at the front desk is very helpful, restaurant medium. Although they don't tell you proactively you can order real cofffee(vs. Only filter) at breakfast, although they don't seem to like the extra work it causes them;)
The rooms are definitely not worth the price, but for our use the location was worth it.

Room Tip: Apparently they have newer rooms as well, might be worth asking for those at same price.

Herzlichen Dank für ihre Kritik. Neben Filterkaffee bieten wir zum Frühstück gerne italienische Kaffeespezialitäten auf Wunsch an. Uns wundert was sie daran so verwerflich finden .Schade, das sie unser Restaurant nicht richtig kennengelernt haben aber eine Aussage " Medium" haben wir seit 2004 noch nicht dafür erhalten.( go München- delikat essen- Michelin-Aral-Varta -Marcellinos usw. können sich doch nicht alle irren).
Es ist auch richtig, das wir einfache Zimmerkategorien für weniger Anspruch und kleinere Geldbeutel anbieten. Wer es luxuriöser wünscht kann wie überall auf der Welt für finanziellen Mehraufwand auch mehr erwarten. Hier empfehlen wir unsere Zimmer der Premiumkategorie.
Vielleicht haben wir ja Gelegenheit ihnen dies bei einem neuen Besuch zu beweisen.
Mit besten Grüßen vom Münchner Viktualienmarkt nach Wien
