“Excellent budget boutique hotel in Munich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

Excellent budget boutique hotel 10mins on foot from the central train station.
Clean, nice decoration, friendly staff.
We had booked a twin room and they gave us a 4-bed room without any additional charge!!

Often finding a single room is sometimes costly. I chose this hotel based on the location, price, and reviews read here. I needed an inexpensive, clean, single room in Munich and I found it here. The check in is at the cafe out front and the rooms are in back. Although they are private rooms, it is more of a hostel/pension atmosphere rather than a hotel. My single room was good value, very clean, and comfortable. I only stayed two nights but unlike previous posts they did come in and clean up the room. It was a convenient walk to the train station and also not a far walk from downtown. I would stay there again.

Very original place. Location perfect to reach the city center in 10 minutes by foot. there is also a little parking inside. the rooms are very small: there is not place for two persons standing!!! the bathroom is ok but it was strange to find a towel and near it a cartel which says "only for decoration: please don't use it" ...but unfortunately it was too late...because we had only 2 towels, so we had alredy used it!! really nice the breakfast in the cofee near the hotel: eggs, fruits, sausiges, pancakes etc

Hotel is near munich central station. Room is small. As there are only 8 rooms, the reception was not occupied, in fact they dont have any reception. There is a small bar/reastaurant near by and a guy there acts as the receptionist. Free wifi at the bar and not at the room. They had tried to bring some kind of mood in each room. But I dont find them interesting. The screen is too light that you get full sunlight and heat inside the room at early in the morning which disturbs you a lot.

Likes:
10 minute walk from main train station
5 minute walk to the enterance of the Oktoberfest, which was vital after a trip in.
Connected to a bar/restaurant which was another nice place to hang out
Lots of convience stores/restaurants in the area
Renovated rooms with different themes.
Free Wifi

Dislikes:
Pricer during this time (expected)
No in-room safe
Staff not to present. Hotel staff is actually at the connecting restaurant when you check in.

Overall:
During this festival, it was worth the money to be this close.

Upon arrival we reaslied that the hotel was a rear building, beind a cafe. We had to walk around a large bin on its side that had been cleaned out and left open in the middle of the pathway. Not really the welcome we were hoping for! We then realised that reception was in the cafe in the front building, not in the hotel itself.

The dark artistic photos of the hotel rooms make it out to be quite funky, with their colour themed rooms, but as soon as we arrived we realised this was just a way to hide the average quality of the rooms.

Even though the rooms were advertised as "double" it was actually two single beds put together (we didn't notice this in the picture!) and the sides of the beds created a 20cm wooden gap between the matteresses, so not the romantic ideal!

Our room was never cleaned the entire 4 days we were there, and when we went to check out at 7.30am we realised that the reception only operated via the cafe, which meant it was closed (it was a Sunday). We ended up having to spend a fortune on our mobile to call the hotel owner, and ended up just leaving cash and the key in the room.

The only saving grace for this hotel was it's free wifi and that it was close to a train stop and only a 15 minute walk to the main train station. Perhaps this place is ok for singles who want a funky place to stay, but as a couple, we found it pretty average!
