“First Visit to Munich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Have nothing to compare to, but really enjoyed our stay. Travelled for four night break, as a family. We had three rooms between us, and emailed before to request twin beds, and rooms together and at back. All requests were met. Reception is 24 hour and staff there are exceptionally pleasant. Rooms were very clean, functional, and of sufficient size for purpose. bed very comfy, as was the duvet and pillow. Beds separate but together in the continental manner. Hotel is well situated for bars, restaurants and cafes nearby. All we tried were good. Lots of choices for different tastes. breakfast was included, and was very very good for a city hotel I would say. Again would suit all tastes, and included different kinds of delicious rolls, variety of jams, cold meats, eggs, fresh fruit salad, cereals, cheeses, even smoked salmon. Drinks excellent too. Ten minute walk to centre.

Room Tip: Not a busy street, but possibly quieter at back.

Hotel is positioned nicely near several good restaurants, bars and cafes. Some supermarkets nearby also, as is the University station.
Rooms are clean but small, shower was not positioned properly and IMO Wifi should be included in the room price, not happy about being charged extra. If staying for more than a few nights and budget allowing, would recommend staying somewhere with a bit more room and better beds.
Breakfast was OK and quite varied but nothing special, the hours were good though - 6:30 to 10:30 everyday.
If you get a good deal on this hotel, for a few days I would recommend it, but if your budget stretches beyond it, I'd recommend somewhere perhaps more modern.

Spent 3 nights visiting Munich Christmas market. Hotel is about 10mins walk from U-bahn Odeansplatz, maybe 15-20 mins from Mariensplatz, in a quiet side street. Very friendly and helpful staff, both day and night (24 hr reception - so no need to carry heavy keys with you all day).

We chose the slightly more expensive room, (about €10 more) and had a large queen (king even?) sized bed in a large enough room. The en-suite had a full bath with shower over, which was great to soak in after a day around the snow-covered markets. Everything was clean, and the bed comfortble so we slept well.

Then there was breakfast........ where to star? Fruit juice naturally, then cereals, fresh fruit, hams, cheeses, smoked salmon with sprigs of dill, croissants, bread rolls, cakes, and not forgetting bacon lardons, and eggs three ways, scrambled, boiled or fried, all kept topped up so nothing ever ran out.

All in all avery enjoyable stay.

As others have mentioned the transport system is excellent, and as we were two couples the most economic way was to buy a Partner Card, this is valid for up to 5 people all day. It cost just over €20 from the airport (gezampnetz) and about €10 for teh 4 inner zones of Munich, valid on S & U-bahn, busses and trams.

Excellent and comfortable Hotel on city outskirts. Located just a 5-10 minute walk from Odeon square U Bahn station.If there is a group of you buy the 2-5 persons travel card and you can have unlimited travel for up to 5 of you cost just 10.70 euros. Bargain.The Staff were extremly helpful and could not do enougth for us. Breakfast was excellent and there was a variety for all tastes including bacon and eggs for us Brits and you Americans, Room comfortable clean spacious and quiet. We had an evening flight back to the UK and the staff were kind enougth to store our luggage for collection later in the day. Excellent hotel and highly recommended

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a "queen" bedroom

Antares is a small, cozy, affordable hotel on a side street, walking distance to the Munich art quarter and the LMU university, with good connections from the main station (bus stop round the corner). Rooms are small, clean, rather basic; wi-fi available with extra charge; friendly and helpful service; excellent breakfast with lots of choice. Neighborhood with lots of small cafés and restaurants and interesting art and design shops to explore. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here on a whim during Oktoberfest because they had rooms available in June. The hotel was much closer to the old town and metro than appeared on maps and it was a direct line to the train station and Oktoberfest. The walk to the metro station was approximately 10 minutes and 15 minutes to Marienplatz. The hotel was quiet and the room was nice and clean. It came with a TV, minibar and hairdryer in the bathroom. The best part about staying here was the delicious breakfast served each morning. The breakfast had juice, coffee, cold meats and cheeses, cereal, eggs, bacon and sausage, among other foods. Would stay here again without question. My only complaint is that wifi is not free.

We got a very good deal through a website and, to be honest, were not expecting the hotel to be anything other than in a very good location for sightseeing. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially Reception staff and those who worked in the breakfast room. The room was comfortable and adequate, rather than luxurious, but was beautifully clean and very well-serviced each day. Breakfasts were excellent!
Were I to stay again, I think I would ask for a room at the back as there was some street noise, made worse by the fact that we kept the windows open all night as Munich was basking in 28 degrees - in late April!
The Antares had the feel of a family run hotel, which makes a change from big anonymous chains. I would have no hesitation in staying there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back?
