“Great location, perfect service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Spent three nights here at Christmas. Great service, friendly staff, great Internet connection, clean and comfortable. Absolutely perfect stay. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great Munich experience! Breakfast was especially good, and the adjacent restaurant was so good we ate there twice and had drinks there on another occasion.

Unusual these days, for many hotels to remain the same or better. It seems like updating lags behind because of lacking funds to maintain. Not the case with the Hotel Torbrau. Over the years, we have stayed here 3 or 4 times. The hotel has been modernized, updated and is a great choice for a key location in Munich. A very plentiful breakfast, knowledgeable and helpful staff and well priced.
This visit, during the Christmas Markets, each evening from 5:00 until 7:00 pm, we were greeted with gluhwein and cookies. Nice when you come in from the cold.
Excellent hotel. good rates for Munich!

Room Tip: We asked for a room that did not from the street. Our request was filled to perfection and our stay...

We couldn't have been more pleased with this hotel. Very accomodating and friendly staff that went out of their way to help. An excellent location for walking around Munich. The room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom spotless and large. We opted for the room with a separate sitting area and made the right choice. The raised area with the bed was a little cramped, but, being a corner room, the windows made it seem larger. The two windows faced the street, but we couldn't hear a thing. Very quiet. We were given gluhwein and cookies in the lobby when returning from the snowy Christmas market at the Marienplatz. There was a business center with a computer where we printed off our boarding passes. The experience couldn't have been better. We'll absolutely be back.

Room Tip: Get the room with the separate sitting area. It made the visit even better.

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...
