We choose to stay at this hotel in August as the Holiday Inn in Munich Centre where we had previously stayed was too expensive this time. I am glad to say we were not disappointed with the hotel.
Firstly, it is a little out the way being c. 12-15 minutes from the station called Taufkirchen to the centre (don't go from or stop off at Unterhaching Station, it is much further to the hotel). Trains to the centre of Munich are only every 20 minutes and take around 20 minutes to get to Marienplatz so it can be a bit of a trek if you are doing it each day. If with a family/group get the excellent value three day ticket for Munich City (Innenraum) at 23 euro.
When exiting the station take note of the Holiday Inn sign which guides you to them from the station. Go through the mall and turn right at the end of the mall, don't keep going as we did and get lost in a housing estate!
The staff are nothing if not pleasant and helpful, we could not fault anything there.
The room itself was actually two rooms on two floors, very unusual and yes the stairs were a bit steep but a handrail was provided. Our son slept downstairs and this doubled as a living room for which the room was a little on the small side. However, there was a flat screen tv on each floor which impressed us and there were many stations available, including BBC World. Also free wifi which is not always the case with Holiday Inn and this was fast and reliable.
Bathroom was clean and good hot shower with towels replaced as required.
Beds were comfortable and there was an efficient air conditioning machine which you could set to belch out cold air which was great as it was roasting when we first arrived.
Tea and coffee sachets were not always replaced.
Breakfast was varied as usual at Holiday Inns and the pleasant and efficient omelette chef who made omelettes to order with ingredients of your choice was a welcome bonus. It is somewhat expensive so we couldn't eat there every day but you can book before you get there - 15 euros each and we got it for 12 euros for our son who is 13. The bistro was also inviting and we ate there twice, a little expensive but not overly so. You can sit outside in a pleasant area there, weather permitting.
For eating and shopping we would recommend the mall area near Taufkirchen station. This has a cheap breakfast bar where we went several times, rolls for 20 cents plus. Also a Lidl, a greengrocers, and a Pauliner Biergarten. Also there is a Penny Markt down the road from the hotel where we stocked up on water, chocolate etc. and you can take the bottles back for recycling and get some of the purchase price back.
There were some additional nice touches. There is a pleasant rooftop terrace on the fourth floor from where you can see the Alps (and some giant cranes!), a room downstairs where you can iron clothes, a kids play room and a shoe shining machine.
Overall, we were very happy with our stay, perhaps it was little too far out for us as we wanted to go into the centre of Munich every day. But there is little to fault in the hotel itself.
