“Great Hotel super location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Hotel Torbrau is the perfect hotel for visitors to Munich. Although the rooms are a little small the charm of the place makes up for that. Great restaurant attached and the S baun station is only 25 meters from their front door making it a breeze to get to the airport. Friendly staff, great breakfast room. You can't go wrong....

Stayed one night at this hotel in Munich during the Oktoberfest, and it was very nice. It is one of the more expensive alternatives, but
1. clean
2. in a good location, just a couple of minute walk to the subway
3. spacious room
4. excellent breakfast included
5. shopping area
6. hotel parking spots
7. friendly bar personnel and nice hotel bar
negative would be
1. 3 people in the room and only shampoo and soap for 2
2. highly priced
3. reception people were not friendly

I would return, as I would rather have a nice central room than worry about the snobby reception.
*watch out for SMALL garage places!

We visited during the Oktober Feste and it was obviously more expensive than other times. Torbrau is a nice smaller hotel with friendly service and in a good location for walking all over town, including the beer gardens. The only problem we had, is the stairs you have to climb (with your luggage), no matter what floor you are on. To reach the elevator you first have to go up a flight of stairs and when you get to your floor you have to either climb or descent another flight of stairs. Bad design!

Room Tip: For a quiet room, ask for a room on the courtyard.

I love Munich and the Torbrau is the place to stay when you are here. Very close to the centre of town and the breakfast buffet is to die for. Great staff who are always happy to help whether it's directions to a restaurant or opening hours of a laundromat.

Great location just at the edge of the center of Munich and its historic city center. Rooms are on the small side, but very adequately furnished. Bathroom with separate tub was very large. Quiet and safe area and only a 5 minute walk to Hofbrau house, and city center. Beds were comfortable. Buffet breakfast was consistent, but varied with plenty of choices.

Nice place to stay. However, you have many other cheaper and better options in Munich. It's right at Isartor, with easy access to the S-Bahn. My room (406) had a terrible bed, and the AC unit was very noisy. Bathroom was not very functional, and when showering, water would go hot, cold, hot. The elevator is very tiny, and about 5 flights of stairs from the ground floor (reception). Breakfast was good. Staff very friendly.

This was our second time staying at Hotel Torbrau and we thoroughly enjoyed it once again. We stayed in a deluxe room (these were the only ones available at booking due to Oktoberfest), slept soundly in the comfortable beds and relaxed in the amazing shower. The shower had 4 different nozzles - one of the best showers we've ever had! The cleanliness of the hotel was also very impressive. The front desk staff was very helpful, the breakfast was great, and the location can't be beat. The room was very pricey though (about 200 euros MORE than in January), but we attributed that to the busy time period and bigger room. This will be the only hotel that we stay in when we visit Munich!
