“Absolutely the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for 4 days in May. Besides the fact that this hotel has everything that you need of excellent quality and in good location, the most impressive was the hospitality of the place. We have never before, and we travel quite a bit, felt so welcome as in this hotel. Our plane came early to Munich, and we were in the hotel around 9am or so. I expected that they would keep our luggage until the time of check in. But we were greated by the manager, I presume , within next 5 min. He welcomed us to the breakfast area for a breakfast and a cup of coffee after the TransAtlantic flight, and in 30 min informed us that the the room for us is ready, and it doesn't matter that we came so many hours before check in time, we were welcome any time. The pleasant experience continued throughout our stay regarding the service, breakfast, room, and location. I recommend this hotel to everybody. Next time when We are in Munich, this is the place to stay. No doubt.

At first when planning our trip to Munich, we thought we'd stayed in European chain hotel because we knew what we would get - and Rick Steves had it listed in a guide book (although he did call it boring). Then we found an article in Saveur magazine about Munich and the Hotel Admiral was recommended. So glad we found this hotel. It was super comfortable and quiet (we had a garden-view room on second floor) and the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. We have to give a special shout-out to Raha at the front desk, who should be listed in the dictionary under "best customer service." Kevin was a fabulous host. And the breakfast was exceptional - I swear there was every type of fruit imaginable. The location is convenient - right across the river from the museums, in walking distance to Marienplatz, and 2 blocks from a mainline subway stop. We would stay there again - absolutely!

I would rarely bother to write a review, but I thought Admiral deserved the effort. It's a great little hotel and the staff are extremely helpful (reservations etc) and polite. They put a great deal of effort into the breakfast and the rooms. They obviously care about the details. For the price and location it's great value. Having a balcony is also a plus. Highly recommend.

We stayed here four nights on our last trip and we were very pleased. Right in town but on a quiet side street. The staff was very helpful and polite. Our room faced the garden and was nicely appointed and very clean. Breakfast had a wide variety of foods and everything was very fresh and good quality. We appreciated the fact that breakfast was available for 3 hours each morning. Being on vacation, it was nice to be able to sleep a little later and still get breakfast.
Overall, if you are planning a stay in Munich, I think that you would be hard pressed to find a nicer hotel with better staff than the Admiral

We stayed here for a short break in August to take in the sights of Munich. I found the hotel staff to be very pleasant, helpful and most importantly, welcoming. Although our stay was short the room, the breakfast (which is delicious) and the atmosphere was very good. The room was a little warm on occasion (its August after all) but this did not hamper our enjoyment we simply went out and enjoyed the city. I can recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a pleasant stay in the centre of Munich.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the Garden if you can.

I would certainly like to give the Hotel Admiral a fine review. There were many things about it that I liked. The staff was friendly and helpful, the vaunted breakfast was very good indeed, and it was pleasant to sit in the garden during the evening when all was fairly quiet. Quiet was, however, not always the case in our room. We had a room on the first floor (104) facing the street. The Hotel Admiral does not have air conditioning, and, given the temperature of Munich the last time we were there, I can understand why this is the case. However, this visit was warm in July 2013, and although the overhead fan helped, it was necessary keep the windows open. That created problems.

By five in the morning the street noise from deliveries was beginning to be a problem, and when the construction crew working on the building next door arrived before six, it was as if we had a half dozen extra guests in our room. I think I know several of the workers by name. I realize the Admiral can't be completely held responsible for the construction noise coming from next door, but it seemed to me that it was not particularly good customer service to charge full price for a room that was so noisy. My wife made a comment, and the hotel refunded our two days of parking; I said nothing. I don't know if there's a solution as long as construction continues on the building next door, which will probably be the case for the remainder of this summer. I don't know that any of the front rooms would be particularly quiet, since construction is taking place all over the building next door, and I'm not sure how much quieter it is during the day on the backside. We were told that the back side of the hotel was no quieter, but I'm not sure if that's the case. It's certainly quiet on the back side in the evening, but at that point, so is the front side.

I do appreciate the fact that a brochure in our room advised us just how much there was to see at the nearby Deutsches Museum, and we certainly enjoyed the half day we spent there. The parking under the hotel is tight, but it is convenient. You may have to back your car off of the parking ramp to load the car.

Room Tip: Avoid 104 and 105, maybe anything on the front side.

We had a great stay, location is great with 10-15 minute walk to the old city. We were lucky and the weather was great however leaving the windows open means lights and waking up early. The breakfast is great and the backyard is absolutely charming. Overall I recommend to stay there is weather is good during your stay and you are an early riser.
