My running buddies and I stayed at Fleming's Hotel for the Munich Marathon and it was ideally-placed for all of our needs. Its proximity to the main station (Hauptbahnhof) was what drew us to the hotel and that enabled us to easily get to the Olympic Park on the S-Bahn as well as to pick up the sightseeting bus. The city centre is also a short walk away - within minutes you can be in Marienplatz. Great location and surprisingly quiet at night.
The accommodation amenities were quirky but nice. Some people may not like the aquarium-style shower room but I thought it was very cool. Maybe I'm an exhibitionist at heart? The toilet room was too small and I found myself hitting my head on the door. Still, the hotel makes great use of the space - remember it is right in the middle of the city. The bed was low but comfy and the lighting was pleasantly moody. After the race, we made use of the spa including the saunas and there's a nice, relaxing area just off to the side with deck chairs and calming poster-sized photos on the walls.
As for internet connectivity - the hotel uses a system that requires a code for every device with which you wish to connect. It was slightly annoying having to go to the desk each day for this but hey - it was free!
As always for us on a race weekend, food amenities were paramount. The restaurant offered a decent value and the breakfast buffet (included in our rate) had a great selection of meats and cheeses as one would expect in Germany. We ended up at the hotel bar for our post-race celebration and the bartender treated us well, introducing us to local spirits and joking with us. The rest of the staff were a tad stiff, I have to say, but very professional.
All-in-all, a very pleasant stay in a hotel with a quirky layout I would definitely recommend it for business travel, traveling alone or with some friends. And yes - there was a shoe polish machine (I always love a good shoe polish machine)!
