“Good hotel near airport for an overnight”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We stayed here at the end of January for one night only because of the early flight next morning. I thought the hotel was in the terminal but it's not, with the public bus shuttle it takes about 5/10 minutes to get to Terminal 1 or 2. It's not cheap but it costed much less than the Kempinski (which is next to Terminal building) so we chose Novotel.

Anyways, the hotel is nice, the rooms are small but it's ok & clean. There is an LCD TV and media dock in the room. Unfortunately the wifi isn't gratis, infact it's very expensive. But you can use the computers next to the lobby area for 20 minutes of free internet, for example for checking in and for printing your boarding passes in advance (which we did so). In order to use the elevator you need your room key to operate it, which is a good security thing.

The public bus to the terminal buildings passes next to the hotel every 20 minutes after 4am: exactly at 16 minutes pass the hour, 36 minutes pass, and 56 minutes pass the hour. It's free of charge. I don't remember until how late it operates, but the first run from Novotel is at 04:16 am.

We didn't have breakfast because of early departure from the hotel, but in my opinion it's expensive (19 euros if I'm not wrong). The only downside we had in the hotel is that our heating in the room didn't function; after almost one hour of waiting the a/c was still blowing cold air (I've put it on 30 degrees celcius but no avail), so we had to ask a separate heater radiator from the duty manager..

In short words, the hotel is ok for an overnight and if you want to be near the airport.

I used the Novotel at Munich airport for a late arrivlal, leave early overnight stay.
The lobby was quite inviting, however the rooms did not live up to expectations. The shower seemed not properly cleaned, however this could also have been an unlucky choice of material. (yellowish discoloring).
The room had twinbeds which were very narrow (about 80 cms), set apart and very hard. Additonally, the room was ice cold.
I will certainly look for a better option next time.

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Never ever again:

- Exorbitant cost (US$1000 for three nights) - a hotel at the Best Western standard or less - I get a luxury suite in Las Vegas for less
- Exorbitant extra cost of internet access and breakfast ($30/day)
- Small room where you can't open a suitcase without blocking the way
- Staff either knocking at the door or entering the room without knocking in the morning (total 5 times in 3 days) - on last day I put a handmade "DO NOT DISTURB" sign at the door
- It's called "Novotel Munich Airport", but is far away from the terminals and there is no shuttle bus (just public bus, or S-Bahn train with a long walk)

I gave this feedback to the hotel via e-mail. In fairness to the hotel, I a courtesy reply by the General Manager with "our pricing policy is adjusted to the behavior of the markets" and other blah blah.

Stay away from this hotel. If you need to stay at the Munich airport I can recommend the Kempinski Hotel which IS actually at the terminals.

due to flight cancellation, I arrived at Munich one day late and found that my advanced reservation is not transferrable... The hotel dministrator refused to help, explaining that their internal policy doesn't allow flexibility when reservations are made online through Expedia(?!?!). So, we had to pay again for another hotel.

Not sure about you, but I expect some more flexibility from a REPUTABLE hotel. Unfortunately, Novotel Munich Airport is not there yet...

This hotel looked like a glass office building and is really convenient to the Airport. The room was very sharp, clean, looked like an IKEA Showroom !! Big Screen TV, unique IKEA style shower/bathroom, big windows with nice curtains which darkened the room well, stylish lighting and a minibar. The common areas in the lobby were very open and stylish.

This is a nice place, but I thought Novotel was a discount hotel.. in American dollars I paid around $200 bucks to crash and take a quick nap before catching a plane. Overpriced in my view, wish I had checked around a bit more for a better deal... again not ripping the Hotel, just the price, obviously they benefit from a close proximity to the Airport.

Room Tip: Rooms seemed similar, quiet double paned glass.. my side of the hotel faced the Airport loop but I d...

This is a really nice hotel near to the airport. It is not AT the airport as some sites suggest. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious with mini bar and aircon etc. The food and service in the restaurant is excellent but you have no chance to eat anywhere after 11pm. Not even in your room. I would definitely stay there again if I am using the airport .

The hotel is close located to the airport in Munich. Although you should take a bus #635 that departs every 20 minutes from T1 and T2 and middle stations and the trip duration is 5 minutes more or less. Also the ticket price is apprx. 1.3 euro. The bus station of the hotel is across the street outside of the Hotel and the name is NOVOTEL.
The negative part is that there is no satelite bus from the Hotel. All the other hotels arround the airport provide that service and that hotel did not.
In any case it was a nice saty. The room was clean and the personnel kind and positive.
If you dont want to spend lot of money for dinner take the bus and return to the airport for dinner. Will be cheaper since the prices at the restaurant of the hotel is really expensive,.
Thats all. I suggest it to everyone that hotel for a short stay.
