The Ibis Muenchen Garching is a really basic hotel. Good for staying for sleep but if you want to spend here more time, better choose something else. The price is too high but it's Munich...
Nevertheless, it has very good location next to the train station from where you can go straight to the city center in 20 minutes.
Reception is neutral but I have a feeling that night arrivals are maintained by a security guy standing at the reception. I had a problem with getting the invoice at the beginning. Also I had to ask for a receipt of payment because, he was not intending to do it himself.
Check-in lasted too long.
Rooms are basic too. Cheap design. There are beds (quite comfortable), small flat TV with couple of channels, small closet, no sofa but something similar to it. No socket near the bed, so my phone had to stay on the desk for charging. Laptop the same.
The biggest attraction in the room is a toilet that looks like a portable toilet from the street. The cabin is plastic and seems as it was assembled here in the room from pieces. Makes a bad feeling.
Internet is average (M3 Connect). My VPN worked too slow.
Breakfast is also basic but ok. Normal tables so you can have a seat as a human (not like in Motel One next door).
As it comes to Garching. Those hotels are basic. I stayed in Motel One and it is not much different than Ibis. Ibis has bigger room and better restaurant but worse design and Internet. Nevertheless, it is cheaper. I would never try Ibis Budget next doors. So in my opinion if you want normal basic hotel better take Ibis. If you want some design but tiny room and "fast food" restaurant with no regular tables take Motel One.
Personally, I will take Koning Ludwig II Hotel next time.
