Attentive staff, ready to help. Clean, comfortable rooms (some on the small side). Five minute walk from Marienplatz and 100 feet from the Isator S stop. Great breakfast in the AM. Great value for the $.

Went to Munich on a business trip together with a group of 8 for 2 days - the 2 following days it was a pleasure trip together with my husband. Everybody was very satisfied - which is normally almost impossible - to make everybody happy I mean! Very central, very clean, very friendly and helpful staff... And very delicate in all ways. The rooms, the breakfast (order your own omelets etc) and the decorations. I really liked the unique combination of old tradition / history and modern design - it was all so clean!. Very service minded lobby bar with piano music and friendly waiter - perfect after a night out. Especially the waiter from Ireland was nice! We were even offered free Gluwein in the reception. I will defiantly stay here next time, and so will all the others in my group!

Room Tip: My husband and I had a superior room, 201, and it was perfect. Clean, calm (back yard) windows in al...

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid November (couple with a 21 month old daughter). Front desk staff is very friendly and responsive. We arranged babysitting for 1 night via email with the front desk staff and were very satisfied with our experience.

Location wise, this is a fantastic choice. The main attractions like Marienplatz, Viktualienmarkt, Hofbrauhaus, etc are all less than a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The high end commercial stores are also a stone's throw away. Very accessible from the highway (didnt have much traffic getting to the hotel or back on the autobahn).

Rooms were clean and spacious. We had a room facing a side street on the 5th floor and there was no street noise on both the Fri and Sat nights we stayed there. There were 2 complimentary bottles of water provided in the room for our 2 night stay. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, with ample toiletries and a well functioning hair dryer. No shower cap was provided but the front desk took care of that in minutes when I requested one. Beautiful bathtub with a built-in shower.

The hotel offers paid parking and if their lot is full, you can park at nearby hotels as well (front desk staff will guide you) for about 16€/day.

The hotel has a restaurant/bar called Schapeau. Very good food but slightly overpriced, extremely friendly staff and quite kid friendly ambiance. Locals seem to frequent this place late at nights for drinks. A Sunday brunch with live swing music seems to be also quite popular at the hotel.

There are a number of restaurant choices all within minutes of walking distance from the hotel. We ate in Schapeau the 1st night since we arrived rather late and tried a typical Bavarian restaurant about 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel on the 2nd night.

Breakfast was included in our room rate. The buffet spread was quite varied and included a few varieties of local sausage, eggs made to order, a large choice of pastries and breads, several kinds of cheese, salads, cereals, yogurts, jams, fresh juices, sekt, etc.

Room Tip: If you are averse to taking stairs, ask for a room on a lower floor since the single operating eleva...

Yes, I really liked it. Reservation for 2 rooms, 3 nights. It is a great hotel. Very clean and comfortable. Smaller rooms, but standard for Europe. Triple was a bit crowded (third bed = small couch) Very nice breakfast. Walking to Marienplatz, Hofbrauhaus, train close by. Pretty expensive. Will stay there next summer

Hotel Torbrau has a prefect location at Isartor near Marienplatz.
Room and breakfast was excellent.

We did miss a refrigurator to cool our champagne, but the hotel delivered a wine cooler promptly.
When we needed ironing a shirt, the hotel delivered an ironing kit promptly.

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....
