After complaining to my colleague about the poor experience I had at the Marriott hotel in Munich over a delicious dinner at the restaurant Freisinger Hof, he mentioned that next time I should stay at the hotel which is 100 yards away.
Having to return to Munich the following week I reserved a room at the Freisinger Hof for 118 Euro which included free wifi and a great breakfast for just 10 Euro; I had paid 189 Euro at the Marriott as well as an outrageous 19.95 Euro a night for wifi!! I would have been charged for breakfast if it was not removed as my boss is a frequent stayer with Marriott; maybe the marketing people at Marriott should rethink their strategy - I doubt I will ever become a frequent stayer if I have to pay all these ridiculous extra charges.
Anyway back to the Freisinger Hof; it is a family run hotel which you can tell from the friendly staff everywhere. My room was clean and basic with a nice large bathroom and alll the amenities you expect from a good class business / chain hotel.
The hotel is close to the upmarket suburb of Bogenshausen and in the north east of the city so in the right direction for the airport.
I shall definitely return and I have a feeling the stay will be even more pleasant when spring and summer arrivesin this beautiful part of Germany.
