Its a bit remote from the city center, so you will have to Ubahn in to see and do anything, but it is only about 15 minutes to Marienplatz, so it is still well situated for sightseeing. I used it for business stays and appreciated the attached parking garage. Room prices are pretty good.
I think the rooms may vary a bit in their level of refurb. I've stayed in two executive rooms that feel a little dated with dark wood furnsihings and shiny wallpaper and I've stayed in another that was lighter and a little more modern. Bathrooms have small shower/tub combo (not very wide tubs so standing is a little weird with your feed riding the curves up the wall of the tub a bit.. Rooms have been very clean. Each have had fridge, TV, hot water kettle, tea/coffee, minibar stuff, though the restocking of the supplies is spotty (I had no spoons in my coffee service the first day on my current stay and the second day they didnt replenish the coffee....and there was a half eaten kit kat in the minbar, lol....someone fell down on the job that day, I guess). I think most rooms have a little balcony.
Reception is friendly, the restaurant is fine (i've had about 4 different entrees over time and have been happy with them). Service in the bar is great and one of the girls has a great memory. Returning two weeks after my previous stay, she greeted me by name and remembered what I ate and drank the last time....that's service. Breakfast is good and plentiful with a hot buffet and the usual cold buffet with meats, cheeses, cereals, pastries, yogurt...at a cool E22, its no bargain. But what's new? You can stock up on food at the nearby grocery stores for breakfast if you want. There is a beergarden in the summer.
I'll be back for a stay with my wife in a week to check out the Christmas markets in Bavaria.
I have become ADDICTED to the sauna/steambath/pool area. Fantastic, relaxing, clean, well kept.
A reminder to all my fellow Americans: Germans sauna in the nude and you will need to as well. If you don't, its pretty rude, and kind of like you are peeping. The first time I went down, nobody was in there and I screwed up the nerve to shuck down and jump in and get settled, i figured if anyone came in I'd be fine. I was shortly joined by people of various sexes and ages and...ya know what...it felt pretty normal after a while. Nobody is staring at you and judging you (well, maybe a little, but who cares...they're strangers) I've used the sauna daily since and it has been pretty busy in there this weekend and I'm pretty much over the bashfulness. I'm no Adonis...anyone wants to look at me, that's THEIR problem, lol.
The sauna is on the left as you walk to the pool, so even if you are just using the pool, you may see some naked folks, be warned. In the pool area, swim suits are expected, so even those coming out of the sauna will suit up to go in the pool (usually, lol....one couple did not this afternoon, but there was no one around to be offended - if this were a spa, it would be normal to bathe nude, too). Proper procedure for neophytes is to shuck down and use one of the two showers outside to the sauna to soap up and rinse before you grab your towel, lay it down on the sauna bench and keep your butt and feet on the towel. After you've had enough, rinse off, suit up and go to the pool area for a cool dip or to relax on a lounge chair.
