“Great spot”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Lovely spot with attentive staff. Let us into our room early. Room was immaculate. Great location with delicious breakfast. There is no elevator so if stairs are an issue, request a room on a lower floor. There is a lively bar and street scene; so if you are a light sleeper you might request a room towards the back of the building. We will definitely return.

What more could you want? Really close to the centre (Marienplatz) and all the transport you need to get to anywhere in munich. You dont need to go far to find great places to eat, and the best place to drink - In my opinion - is the hotel bar.
Great decor with subtle muted lighting makes for a comfortable experience. The staff are very freiendly and know their cocktails (if that's your thing - you are in for a treat).
The rooms are cosey, the bathroom we had was a bit of a funny shape. But the shower was amazing. Everything was clean and tidy. you get a TV and a safe in your room and a hairdryer in the bathroom.
There are no lifts so just be wary of this if you get a room on the 4th floor! Saying this, the one staircase you use to get to your floor is a lovely spiral one.
The walls are thin, so you will hear everything from your neighbours room. and they will hear you! Not a problem unless you have a noisy family next to you.
As it is set pretty much in the centre you will get noise from the street. - but i think thats part of the munich experience.
I would stay here again. If i wasnt staying here - i would definatley go there for some drinks. And get the scrambled eggs with herbs and tomatoes for breakfast - delicious.

The Lux hotel is superbly located about 3 minutes walk from Marienplatz. The location could not be better, with a Devine cafe/pastry shop below also. There are 5 floors (no lift) with an exquisite spiral staircase up the centre of each floor. The rooms are average with an amazing shower. Road side is quiet but the unfortunate thing is that the room walls are like paper. EVERYTHING is heard in the other rooms beside. Bring ear plugs or hope that you don't have a family beside you! The bar is so beautiful with Art Deco/mirrored walls/ceilings, smart cosy table areas & low lighting. The ambience is cool & jazz like.its there where you have a great breakfast in the morning.

When I first arrived here I was a little surprised that check-in was taken care of at the bar. However, it was smooth and the staff were extremely friendly and efficient.

I was on the 4th floor and had to carry luggage up the stairs as there is no elevator. No problem for me but not ideal if you have kids/prams or are elderly. I should add that they offered to help me but I was too proud to accept :-)

The room was spacious and comfortable with an imaculate bathroom and free wi-fi that worked!

What made this place for me was their excellently stocked downstairs bar and the mixologists that ran the joint. I've been in many decent cocktail bars but this place was exceptional, not only because the menu included some very unusual concoxions and twists on the classics but also because the bar staff were so enthusistic about discussing their creations. I would recommend the bar to anyone who is not a hotel guest, especially solo's!

The a la carte breakfast was excellent and the staff could not have been more happy to help. The rooms have no ironing facilities but if you ask at the bar they will have the kit delivered to your room.

All in all, I would recommend to business travellers and solo's/couples on a weekend break in Munich! Central location is also ideal.

This small hotel is situated in the very centre od Munich. Unfortunatelly they don't have their parking lot, so you must try public parking. Rooms are very nice and clean, beds are comfortable and breakfasts are very good.

This is a nice hotel smaller in size. It has a great location near Marionplatz. It's only a block from the Hofbrauhaus so you can easily find your way back after a liter or so of bier. The rooms were a bit small, but if you don't have lots of luggage, there's plenty of room. The bathrooms were also small, but not the smallest I've ever seen. Their a la carte breakfast was one of the best breakfasts I've had in Europe. It's a little different than typical European buffets, but was excellent nonetheless. The staff was great and very helpful. It was interesting that hotel reception was in the bar, but it worked. The only slight downside is there is no elevator, so carrying a heavy suitcase up to the 4th floor was no easy task.

This perfect located small hotel is perfect for a weekend stay in München. Clean and simple! A la carte breakfast included in the price an for people like me who are fed up with bad buffets - this is really nice.

The best thing - the bar. Nice staff and good drinks.

The only thing that could be bad is that there are no elevator. That is not a problem for me, but if you are older or have small kids it could have been problems.
