Very central hotel, but old unmodernised tiny rooms with creaking beds (when was the last time you saw those radios built into the headboard of the bed?). How it ever gained a 2 star rating I don't know. I think in the 70s the owner decided to retrofit it with more rooms, because the rooms are rectangular with pre-fabricated algae-green plastic bathrooms slotted into them. Mine was nicely decorated with hairs, from a part of the body we don't need to discuss.
In terms of conveniences, there are no hairdryers in the rooms, nor any at reception. And if you need an iron, you need to leave a deposit at reception because they keep on being stolen apparently.
It is central though, 2 mins from hte central station and nicelysandwiched between 'sexyland' lapdancing club on one side, and 'erotic world' on the other. If you don't wish to spend your money at these establishments, there are numerous homeless people on the street who will happily take your money instead. In fact, while we are discussing the disadvantaged in society, I suggest they just the munich council buy the hotel and let the homeless live in it. I've stayed in far better hostels, at vastly less cost, than this hotel.
And talking about money, I paid €391 for 2 nights, which is insane. I'm sure the owner could purchase several irons and hairdressers, and still have plenty of change, at that cost. He certainly hasn't ploughed any of his profits back into the hotel. Maybe he blows it all drinking at Oktoberfest?
You may think this review is unbalanced and unfair, but I've not had a few weeks to reflect on the hotel. Believe me, this review could have been far worse.
So in summary, avoid it, let the owner go bankrupt, and give it back to the homeless on the street in which it stands. You will then be helping society immeasurably by taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor. And you never know, they may even install hairdryers.
