Grabbed a breakfast on the patio and went to our room to nap before hitting the streets for a beer walking tour. The hotel is very centrally located and easy to walk or... More

Dear Guest, Although it seems we lived up to your expectations in our service, we would like to apologise for the (second) room not beeing completely odour-free. This is obviously not indicative of our usual high standards. Nevertheless, we are delighted that you enjoyed the warm service and the great location. We hope we are able to welcome you back...

The room size was good but the tv was very tiny. The staff was very helpful and offered amazing service. Hotel location was average, around 15 min to the center. I would definitely stay there in my next visit

When I checked in at night, after having gotten up at 4:30 in the morning, I was given an upgrade without even asking for one. The room was spacious (with the most comfortable bed and linens), and the bathroom was large, clean and comfortable.

I took a group of 32 people to stay there. Everyone loved it! The service was superb and they make a point of giving everyone special treatment. I would recommend it without hesitation. It is convenient to the major Munich Museums.
