“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

I booked this hotel through last minute .com as one of their secret hotels, so until I paid, I didn't know what we were going to get. Paid £467 for 5 nights with breakfast and we were not disappointed. I was travelling with a mate for a city break. The hotel is just a 5 minute walk from Munich main station. Here, you have access to main regional train services and the Tube system for the city and beyond. The hotel was very modern, clean and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent with a various and quite extensive choice. There was tea and coffee facilities in the room too. Staff were very helpful and polite. I would describe the general area as a typical central train station area. Yes, lots of casinos, betting shops and "gentlemans" clubs (nudge nudge wink wink you know what I mean) but if that concerns you that much, then you'll have to pay ££££'s more to stay in an exclusive area of town. The hotel is also a 10 minute walk from the Oktoberfest site. The ONLY issues we found with the room were firstly, the design was such that the bathroom is sort of open plan with no door and a frosted window between the bathroom and the sleeping area. There were doors to the shower and toilet room, but if using the sink area, the light would shine through, so if one of you got up early, the light and noise would wake the other up. The second problem was the room safe. It was a standard type digital hotel safe, and whilst free to use, WASN'T bolted in, so you could literally pick it up and walk out of the hotel with it! After raising this with reception, it appears that none are bolted in. Other than that, the Hotel was excellent value for us and a great location and I would stay here again, and recommend it to friends and family. Oh, finally, there's a Lidl just one minute down the road, great for buying bits and pieces if you're on a budget.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights and loved it. Close enough to old town to walk and close to the train station! The hotel is very new, modern and the rooms are very large! We had a very large shower with rainfall shower head. After a long day out sight seeing with the high in the 40s and raining it was nice to come back and take a warm shower. The beds were extremely comfortable and you had your own air conditioning/heat controls.

Many have complained about the location but my daughter (21) and I never felt unsafe. To miss the casinos and strip places you can exit the south side of the train station (right by the Hotel Sofitel) and cross the street and head west on Bayerstratte, go two blocks and turn left on Mitterstratte and then walk one block to where it intersects Schwanthalerstratte. There is a pastry, coffee, sandwich shop called BackWerk one block east of the hotel where you can pick up something for breakfast. A large grocery called Lidl is in the same block right past BackWerk. We loved our stay at this hotel and would highly recommend it to friends!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room on an upper floor facing the back of the hotel. We were on the 6th floor...

Obviously no one wants Persian rugs and Toby jugs in a modern, 4 star hotel but this place goes slightly too far the other way. The breakfast room literally looked like a hospital cafeteria and the bar in the lobby is too well lit and has no atmosphere. The rooms are completely white. All this is just an aesthetic consideration, however. More problematic is the fact that there is no door on the bathroom and if someone turns the light on, the person in the main room is disturbed. This modern trend for making the bathroom part of the room is gimmicky and impractical, particularly for two friends. The staff were friendly and efficient, especially the barman, and the breakfast was very good with lots of choice.

Stayed at this hotel June 2013. Lovely hotel, modern, clean, great breakfast, very close to main train station, large park nearby where you can run. The literary them is well done - for example, each room has a short literary quote above the bed - clever....!

HOWEVER......... they let it down with their strange smoking policy. Smoking rooms are mixed in with non-smoking ones. Why on earth would you do this? I had requested a non smoking room which I got (I have mild asthma), but I was placed directly opposite a smoking room - not good for my asthma, and of course the corridor always smelt of stale smoke - yuk! So, I asked to be moved - and I was the next day - to a non-smoking floor which was perfect. If they must have smoking rooms in the hotel why don't they simply congregate them on the same floor?

I stayed in Rome on this trip and the hotel there was totally non-smoking. If they can do it in Rome (which is smoking central!) they surely could do it for this hotel.

So, in summary this is a great hotel, highly recommended (and would have been 5 stars), BUT you need to ask for a non-smoking room ON A NON-SMOKING FLOOR...

Room Tip: you need to ask for a non-smoking room ON A NON-SMOKING FLOOR

A really modern, hip hotel. The rooms are large with two closets. Don't see that very often in Europe. Nice, modern bathroom with a full length shower door. The bed was so comfy. We had a room over the street but noise was minimal. The neighborhood was train station type if you know Europe. Plenty of casinos so not a good choice if you are a gambling addict. Real pearl of a hotel in a sea of seediness

Beautiful interior design and room, free apples at the reception desk, close to the metro- central railway station, One metro stop from the old town. Very convenient to reach from the airport train. The shortest way from the hotel to the metro station: turn right and right again. Enjoy Munich.

The hotel itself was mostly great - lots of closet space, big beds, a great breakfast that's worth the 18 euros per person, a nice rain shower, good number of power outlets, and free wifi (had to keep logging in, though). Although the towel warmer was permanently disabled, the bathroom was good, if small. There were, however, a lot of light switches that were very confusing. Often I was trying to turn on just one light and ended up turning on everything but that light, or turning off all the lights. The front desk personnel were nice sometimes, but other times seemed irritated.

The housekeeping was not as good as the hotel rooms. The blanket on the foot of the bed had a huge stain shaped like someone had sat on it, and was never changed out for a clean one. The amenities in the room included just one tiny bar of blue soap (sized like a pat of butter), and no bath gel or shampoo. When we found the housekeeping staff, they said they would give us some soap for the shower, but ended up just giving us two shampoos. The front desk, however, had real bath gel, and brought it up to us on a different day. It seems like the housekeeping carts on each floor were not stocked well enough to service the rooms. On different days we would get different services. One day, the floor was not swept. On another day, the towels were not changed.
