Fresh tea was served and I have never seen such an expansive buffet at even 5 star places in Asia.... ..so many cheeses, sausages, smoked salmon, and then shrimp cocktail, pates and muesli plus a selection of breads, jams and...

Great location when you arrive from the train, few minutes walk from Munich passage all the way to mariaplatz. The stuff is amazing, hospitality is great. Breakfast was more than we expected, if you want to fill the traditional Munich in style, this is the place. The room itself are not fancy.

This cozy hotel decorated in Bavarian style is located in a quiet street between the main railway station (Hauptbahnhof) and Karlzplatz, just across the street from Karstadt department store and ~5 minute walk from the closest Kaufhof, which makes it easily accessible and perfect for shopping. And it is also perfect for sightseeing both in Munich and the vicinity. You...

I wanted to stay at this hotel for its proximity to the shopping area. The room is tiny, and you could hear every movement in the hallways. I think the floors of the hallways are hardwood and not carpet. Huge selling point though is the service, the staff is extremely courteous and make you feel welcome the minute you walk...

I've been to Munich 5 times, and I've just stumbled upon this lovely Hotel Excelsior. The hotel has a great location, with literally just a few steps from the Hauptbahnhof, and simply a 10-minute stroll to the Marienplatz. It has a lovely decor, but what makes them extra special is their staff, and their extra impressive services that exceeds even...
