We stayed in this hotel while visiting the Christmas Market in Munich. It is located close to the train station, where we arrived on a train from Nuremburg and where we took a train to the airport. The hotel is within walking distance of the Christmas markets and the Old City. The person at the check in desk was very...

This hotel is located about a five minute walk or less from the main train station (Hauptbahnhof). I arrived there in mid-morning and a room was not available yet, but they happily let me store my luggage. The woman at the reception also provided me with a map of the city and transportation lines.

Literally a 5 min walk from the main train station and within 10 min from Karlsplatz as a gateway to the old city. The reception was friendly, professional and went out of their way to help us with city sightseeing queries as well. Rooms are really well appointed for the price.

Wish I had spotted this hotel before. Very nice welcome and efficiently run hotel. About 3 minutes walk from the station, although not much of a neighbourhood.However did not encounter any problems whatsoever. Received a quiet room overlooking the courtyard. Highly recommend this hotel. Bar area nicely laid out with a brilliant in-house restaurant.

Average pretty much says it all. I stayed in a remodeled "comfort" (i.e., more expensive) room which was large, but as it was long and skinny the space was not really very usable. The bed, desk, and TV were all placed at the far end of the room by the window. The first room I was given had a heating...

I left my hearing aid on the nighttable, and went for a short walk. The hotel staff did turn-down service during this time, and when I returned, I noticed the right hearing aid was missing. I alerted the front desk staff immediately, and requested the room be checked carefuly when I checked out in the morning. I have stayed at...

Dear Janiceboo, thank you very much for your comment. As you know, our staff didn’t find your hearing aid in your room and the room maid was asked for the hearing aid as well.
