Like most reviewers, I can assert that the location of this hotel is excellent: Right next to the Old Town and a subway station. The main train station is only a 10 minute walk away (by subway just one stop).
The hotel is clean with a modern feel. Unfortunately the rooms are tiny, and there is very little space for your luggage. There is no safe in the room. Also, the walls are quite thin and it's possible to hear what your neighbors are talking about. Bring ear plugs if sleep quality is important to you. Otherwise the beds are comfortable.
We had some problems with the temperature in the room. It was constantly too warm and there was no fan of any sorts on during the winter (seems the whole system was switched off). Fortunately, one can open the windows. Curiously, also the lobby area is extremely warm - almost to the point of it being uncomfortably hot.
The breakfast buffet is basic but adequate. We'd recommend to have breakfast as early as possible. At 9 am you might have to wait in line for a table.
It can be a little tricky to find the hotel at first. If coming from the airport, you can e.g. take the S1 train to the main station (Hauptbahnhof), change to subway U1 or U2, get off at Sendlinger Tor, locate the Herzog-Wilhelm Strasse exit and once you get up to the street level turn left. The hotel is just 100 meters away.
For affordable restaurants close to the hotel, we'd recommend e.g. Cafe Cord (turn left when exiting the hotel and walk 100 meters) or Cafe Mozart on Pettenkofferstrasse (about a 5 minute walk in the other direction). Opposite of the hotel on the other side of the street is a little cafe with scrumptious cakes. If visiting Munich during the Christmas market season, the Glühwein is tasty and the atmosphere cozy at the Sendlinger Tor market.
This hotel could be even better, if the hotel staff were a bit friendlier. Especially the staff at the front desk could develop a friendlier attitude towards the guests.
