“Good hotel at great location with excellent service”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Stayed two nights while in Munich- can definitely say that lots of attentions have been paid to details. Consider this is a private owned business you will really appreciate the personal touch. They compensate areas could be improved with the great service and friendliness.

If you tired of those huge hotels where you do not feel welcome, try this small hotel in Munich. Its location is 2 blocks away from Ubahn that takes you to Munich main attractions within 2 stops. Staff is helpful and nice. Apartments are small but very confortable and well decorated. Finally, breakfast is delitious

Our recent stay at the boutique hotel, Das Nikolai in Schwabing, is all we expected from earlier reviews on Trip Adviser. It sits in convenient and quiet corner just a few steps from the busy Leopold Str, between two u-bahn stations--Gisela Str and Muncher Friehiet--and only a very few minutes ride to the Marianplatz. It is also within walking distance of many restaurants and shops and the English Garden.. I would say the location is as convenient as those in the middle of the city, maybe even more so. The rooms are attractive with a softer atmosphere than the usual colorless German hotel rooms. Rather than two duvet covered beds, this room included a desk, sofa, two chairs, duvet covers, colorful lamps, a small dresser with a pale green color scheme. (very nice for quiet conversations with friends who we had arranged to meet in Munich.) The bath is small, but efficient The breakfast buffet with rolls, breads, eggs, fruit, meats, cheeses, vegetables, yogurt, salmon, jams, and a variety of other spreads is more than ample. Best of all is the very friendly staff, ready to assist at any time of day with any sort of problem. I will certainly stay at the Nikolai during my next visit to Munich.

Room Tip: The location is quiet enough that any room would offer a good night's sleep.

If you're looking for an independent hotel in a local neighborhood close to central Munich, this is the place for you. We loved this neighborhood (Schwabing), as it was a long walk or very quick subway ride to the old town and was full of shops, restaurants, cafes and beer gardens. It was a quiet location even though you are only 1 block from the main retail and dining street. It is also just a few blocks from the English Gardens, which we enjoyed walking through to reach the city.

We stayed in room 304, which had a great balcony overlooking a small park. It seems like there may be quite a variance in the rooms, so worth paying a bit more for a double and requesting a specific room in my opinion. Service was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 304 and loved the balcony with a view.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with our son in a rollaway bed. Overall it was a comfortable stay. Room was clean with all the usual amenities although only 1 luggage stand. I would also prefer a door on the bathroom. Although it is no smoking, there was a smell of it in our hallway (no where else thankfully). As others say the breakfast is good and is open for an extended period 7am-11am. Jobst is the most friendly and helpful staff member. Located near many restaurants, a laundry and shops. 3 stops from Giselastrasse U-bahn to Marienplatz. Also on the same line to BMW Welt which is worthwhile (the plant tour - best to book). Booked it based on the positive TA reviews which were a very reliable representation of the hotel as well as location and good value.

Room Tip: Suite is good for a little extra room. We were on 3rd floor over the entry - it was quiet and we did...

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at Das Nikolai on the days leading up to and the first day of Oktoberfest. I picked this hotel specifically because it was a little outside of the main square and away from all the craziness that would ensue over the next couple of days and I am so glad I did because they did not disappoint. The young man at the reception (I can't remember his name now!) was there every single morning to help us and answer any questions we had about where to go and getting around town.
The rooms were spacious and clean and as everyone has already mentioned, the breakfast is absolutely wonderful - pastries, breads, a plethora of fresh fruit, meats, cheeses and eggs made to order every morning.
It was our first time to Munich, so we had a lot to learn about the upcoming Oktoberfest but the young man at reception gave us a ton of tips and even printed us out maps of the parade routes and a map of the fairgrounds and the best beer tents to go to. The hotel is situated in a nice quiet neighborhood close to tons of restaurants and cafes and only two U-Bahn stops from Marienplatz. I could not recommend this hotel more - the staff and owners really made our stay in Munich perfect!
