“A Hotel with room to improve”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Nice friendly hotel excellently located in the most touristic area of the city, at walking distance from MarienPlatz. The Hotel is clean and the staff is very nice, but the room had a terrible bed, more aproppriate of a youth hostel than a hotel this category, and you could hear too clearly the vacuum cleaner in the corridor in the early morning, and your neighbou's cough and other physiologic noises

We stayed at this hotel after spending a week in the south of France and it was a perfect fit for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was well taken cared for and larger then I imagined. Breakfast was in a bright cheerful room on the first floor and was well stocked with an abundance of various foods to choose from. Location was perfect and just a few minutes walk from Mainenplatz with many bars and restaurants and of course the market stalls.We took the train from the airport and the hotel was a block from the underground train stop. I looked at a number of hotels in Munich and just got a good feeling about this one. Glad I booked it.

Room Tip: The front of the hotel is on a main street so if you're a lite sleeper ask for a room off the ma...

The Torbrau turned out to be perfect for us. The hotel is expertly run, with comfortable rooms and beds, A/C, and a terrific breakfast buffet. We also enjoyed the bar and bartenders....2 young men very serious about being mixologists...and had a great time tasting their manhattans and enjoying bar snacks. The Torbrau is in a perfect location with an easy walk to all of interest in central Munich. They are also close to a Hop-on-Hop-off bus stop which got us to all of the outlying sites including palaces, the Olympic site, the BMW factory, etc. If we ever return to Munich we will certainly stay at the Hotel Torbrau.

The staff has a great sense of humor.
We loved saying hello and goodbye to the strange little display between the first and second floor. Excellent location. The rooms are nice-size (there were three of us). The beds are extremely comfortable. The caramels are a great treat. What a lovely place.

Right in the heart of 'real' Munich, walk through the heart of this fabulous city and enjoy. Then cool off (A/C!!), rest up and go for the next round. Pleasant hotel and staff - great history. Make sure to visit Viktualien Market, have your beer at in the pedestrian zone, aka Kaufinger Strasse (great courtyard) and enjoy a true Munich meal at the Spatenhaus.

I have stayed here many times. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We once had trouble with our vehicle and they helped us find someone to fix it. They also have a fantastic breakfast which comes with the room. The hotel is in the middle of town and right next to the U-bahn station, Isartor. So it is very convenient. It is also very clean and they supplied actual soap instead of "shower gel" which many other hotels have, so I liked that a lot. But more than this, it was the friendly and helpful staff that makes me go back there again and again.

Location was perfect as it was so near Marienplatz, and yet away from the noise. The front desk staff were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfast at Hotel Torbrau was fantastic! They also perfectly cooked the eggs which we requested (Cheese omelette, Onion omelette, Sunny side-up). Good breakfast in the morning made each start of the day wonderful. The rooms were not as nice as we expected (a little old actually) but it was definitely clean and thankfully, the beds were comfortable. And you must try the restaurant Schapeau at Hotel Torbrau! It is fine dining type of cuisine but the food was great! My hubby and I dined there twice! Overall, Hotel Torbrau was a wonderful experience!
