“Superb place - what a gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2010

Casual search sometimes makes you fall over fantastic places. Goal: close to the Christkindlmarket. Goal 2: not too expensive. Found: The Lux Hotel. Super! Great location - literally around 2 corners of the world famous Munich Christkindlmarket. A small place, that you would overlook unless you know it's there. A lovely, small yet very trendy restaurant downstairs, which was packed on both nights that we'd been there. Young, trendy and friendly staff. very relaxed. Chilled even would be the right word. The hotel - a wooden staircase up to the guest room floors (ouch with all our luggage) - but the room was nice. nothing special - basic equipment; very small bathroom. but practical furniture, and in the end, the breakfast & the staff + the location counted much higher than the room which might need a bit of a re-furb. The breakfast was an a la carte menu with a nice choice, yet included!! in the room rate. and the quality of it was amazing. super fresh; tasty; and fantastic cappucino. Seriously - I think half of the team are Italians - cause that coffee was constantly perfect :-). The location was good; Internet codes are available at the restaurant/bar & its for free. works in the room + in the bar. attentive service. the only down-side was the lack of luggage storage on check-out day. It was just parked under the stair-case, which was openly accessible to all other hotelguests passing by. That felt weird. So try to avoid having to store luggage. The check-out time was very early with 11.00am - that seemed odd & unpractical for us (used to a 12noon check-out + a late-checkout around 1pm normally no problem). Otherwise a great place and would stay there certainly again at trips to Munich!

We stayed here for 2 nights, Late September in the middle of Octoberfest.
The Lux is quite close to the Hofferahouse in the middle of the Old town Of Munich.
The Hotel was renovated recently, and the rooms are quite Modern and Fresh.
very clean. IU would 100% recomend a stay here.

The Downstairs restaurant bar were great with a quirky retro feel, the food was spectacular and the bar served great wines and champagne. The button on the side of the wall " push for Champagne" was fun and the Champagne was good quality and not over the top cost wise. Food was top notch.

We really enjoyed our stay rooms were quiet despite a lot of foot traffic out front due to
Octoberfest. Staff were very friendly and helpful and assisted with directions etc.
The hotel is small, you check in through the bar reataurant area but I would really recomend it. Only downside no lift

This is a great location, around the corner from the Hoffbrau Haus. This hotel used to be Hotel Alcrom, it was taken over and remodeled. The old hotel style looked like you were sleeping in your grandma's bedroom with really old furniture from the 1900s. The most bizarre thing happened to us, my fiance stayed in this hotel 2 years ago when it was Hotel Alcrom by himself for a business trip. 2 years later he brings me on his trip thinking its a different hotel and it ends up being the same hotel and we stay in the same room. Now that it's been remodeled, its really swanky, trendy, and clean. We stayed here for one night, which was our last night in town. The bathroom is small, if feels like the the shower is a 3X3 box, there's no counter space, BUT the perk was they had AVEDA products!! The room has no phone, the hotel has no elevators, and the noise level from the street was a bit loud. The staff was really nice and they took care of us. There is a really cool trendy bar/restaurant that serves amazing food and dessert in the lobby. A DJ spins music on Friday nights there. It was nice to eat and drink and walk up 3 flights of stairs to our hotel room. We will stay here again for the price and location.

Not bad, but nothing grand either, the photos on the hotel website do not reflect the real scenery.

ROOMS - Freshly designed, modern style - they have made grand effort to freshen up the building. The furniture and room finish look a little cheap. The design is too simple and crude, so despite the fresh cleanness I did not feel very comfortable there. The street noise is really noticeable.

LOCATION - 4 minutes by foot to Marienplatz and the tube, very convenient. Did not have time to walk around more, no additional comments.

RESTAURANT - the Hotel restaurant is brilliant, it has magnificent cosy atmosphere, shick design and goooood food. Having breakfast there was also pleasant. You get restaurant type breakfast menu and serving on a broad selection of food. Just grand!

STAFF - I would say that there is no staff at all in this hotel, you check in and check out in the restaurant.
