Novum Hotel Muenchen Am Hauptbahnhof
Ranked #239 of 387 Hotels in Munich
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed here on a city break for 4 days and only really used the hotel as a 'base of operations' as it were.

The location was excellent as it is right by the train station and allowed us to get around Munich very easily.

The room was clean and comfortable, with a good shower and decent beds etc.

Breakfast was also very good with a selection of hot and cold food.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the bar was a quiet place to relax and have a beer before heading out into the city.

Although the room was basic it and the bathroom were adequate. The shower head would not stay in place despite turning down the power which was annoying. The pillows were really pillowcases with some air in them and even two didn't offer support.
The bar claimed to offer food but all but one item was unavailable and it was unstaffed most of the time.
The area is a bit downmarket but the underground is basically below the hotel and the main Munich rail station across the road. You will find beggars and afew sex shops!
The restaurant a few doors along in the Eden hotel wolff was classy, a bit more expensive and great food. Rechthaller hof almost next door had a good 2 course lunch and beer for about 27euros for two.

The one good thing this hotel has is its location. Its directly across from the main train station and 10min walk into city center, so thats perfect. And also the wifi is relatively fast and free - so you can stay on facebook all you like. It is also clean and tidy.
However every single negative comment made by other reviewers is correct. Luckily we only stayed 2 nights (any more and I was finding a different hotel). It was priced at 198 euro for the two nights and that was too much.
The hotel is non smoking but people do and it flows through the rooms from down the hallways. Shower heads fail to stay up and water pressure tends to increase only as you increase the hot water.
You will have blown globes in atleast one light fitting. This is surprisingly really annoying.
Our bathroom light was blown when we arrived so we took it out and down to reception to get a new one (as we do not like to shower in pitch black). It was a Saturday evening and reception could not give us a globe and said we had to wait till a manager arrived the next day.
We left the hotel at 11am in the morning and no globe had arrived. We returned around 5pm and were told we had to move rooms as they couldn't fix the light and housekeeping had found another problem.
Great no worries we moved. This second room also had blown globes and a floppy shower head.
If it was 50 euro it would be acceptable...

this is probably our fifth or sixth stay at this hotel. previously it had a different name, but the property is still our choice of a reasonably priced hotel in Munich. what we particularly like is the convenient location. it is just across the street from the main train station and steps away from the U-bahn and S-bahn.
during this stay we had a good sized room at the back of the hotel. We thought it would be quiet as it faced a parking garage, which just so happened to be the place we had to drop off our rental car. It certainly wasn't the hotels fault that there was a rowdy crowd on that street late at night.
our room was not ready when we arrived, but they checked our luggage into a secure room - no charge and we left to do some sightseeing. the room was ready when we returned and had just gotten a brand new bathroom, which they had just been finishing up.
we liked our room - it was adequately sized. We really like the breakfast buffet and the desk clerks couldn't have been nicer. Again, a successful stay,

The best breakfasts i have ever had (wide choice of German sausages, sort of German original potato salad, cheeses like camamber and what not, and as we have 5 hours time difference with Germany in winter, it was like a quite sufficient tasty lunch for us as breakfast time in Deutschland is our lunch time)) , rooms are clean, linen - white and fresh, small bathroom, but its just a 3 star in the centre of the city, no high demands... when the window was open it was noisy, cause night club, bus stop and Hauptbahnhof itself were still right under the window)) We liked the place, attitude and everything, Would come there again,15 minutes walk from Marienplatz, and 20 metres from the main railway station to visit Fuessen, Salzburg, Nuernberg and what not)

This Hotel was known as The Ludwig Hotel the last few times that we stayed there and this 3 night break was our first stay since it has changed its name to Winters Hotel. It has been updated to go along with its name change and now also has a Cafe/Bar where you can have snacks or pizzas and a few beers or coffees. The hotel is a typical budget German Hotel with rooms that are very basic, but typical for this type of hotel. If you want luxurious and spacious rooms then you need to look elsewhere. We always pay extra for a comfort room and this is still very basic, I dread to think what a standard room is like. Matress on the floor perhaps? The breakfast at this hotel is substantial and hearty with a good choice and variety of food and no matter how busy the restaurant gets the food never runs out. For best value for money I recommend booking a package that includes breakfast as paying seperately for breakfast for 2 is quite expensive. The best feature of this hotel is its location right next to the Hauptbahnhof (main Raliway station) with a direct S-Bahn link to the airport. If there are 2 or more of you travelling from the airport into town then buy a Partnerkarte which costs 20.40 Euros and gives unlimited travel on the S-Bahn until 6:00AM the next morning for up to 5 people. 2 doors from the Hotel is the Rechthaler Hof which offers typical, very good Bavarian fare and beer at very reasonable prices. If you want to go further afield the Hofbräuhaus is a 20 minute walk or a 2 minute S-Bahn ride away. There are several eating places in the traffic free zone, but they tend to cater mainly for tourists and are thus on the expensive side. From the hotel it is a 5 to 10 minute walk to the traffic free shopping centre and the Christmas Market and you can make this walk without crossing roads by walking through the Haptbahnhof and into the nearby enormous Karstadt department store where you can also get a good lunch for about 6 Euros..

Room Tip: Pay extra for a comfort room and make sure that breakfast is included in the room cost.
