“Wonderful Hotel, Great Staff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Stayed at the Hotel Torbrau over New Years, and had a fabulous time. The hotel could not be more convenient for exploring Munich. It is a 5 minute walk to Marienplatz and a subway station is steps from the front door. There are all kinds of excellent restaurants close by, and the hotel's Schapeau was very good. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a great breakfast buffet in the morning, that is beautifully prepared and presented. You can also order omelettes and eggs. We stayed at the hotel for New Years' Eve, and had their buffet dinner which was served in the breakfast room. They had a swing band, and the food was wonderful. At midnight, Munich went crazy. I have never seen freelance fireworks like that. Quite dangerous, but also fun. If I get back to Munich, I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room was newly remodeled. Not sure if every room has been redone.

This is a tricky one, I would really like to give it 4.5.
We had a deluxe dbl at the Torbrau. It was an older style room and at first seemed a bit closed in with only one small window in the main room and another in the bathroom. However the room was spacious and very comfortable with a good bed and a seating area with a couch, 2 chairs and a coffee table. The bathroom was large, with a seperate shower and bath and his/hers sinks. Everything was well presented. There was tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Breakfast was wonderful with an enormous selection at the buffet and egg dishes cooked to order. There is another restaurant/bar downstairs.
The location is great, so central. There is some parking available just outside the hotel.
Really there was nothing wrong with this hotel, it was just a little characterless. That is probably just my taste, but so many places we stayed at in Bavaria had so much charm and the Torbrau did not. It felt a little cold, a little stuffy.
With one exception, all the staff we dealt with were very pleasant. Overall it was a good stay, and I would stay here again, but it was not one of my favourites.

Located in the heart of old town, with reasonable room prices and attentive staff! Excellent breakfast and spacious rooms!
The hotel even congratulated the guests with Russian Christmas, provided sweets and champagne!

We stayed here for 3 nights just before Christmas and would definitely stay here again - it was fantastic! The hotel location is perfect; we took the S-Bahn from Munich Airport and there was stop right opposite the hotel entrance. Hotel Torbrau is pretty much in the centre and it was only a very short walk to the Marienplatz, Hofbrauhaus etc.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and were quite happy to go out of their way to make our trip extra special!
The room was impeccably clean, warm and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely: always fresh and with plenty of variety.
We also ate in the restaurant Schapeau (separate review) and would recommend it for food and drinks.
We were lucky enough to experience Christmas in Bavaria and the markets in & around the Marienplatz were wonderful. The only thing missing from our trip was snow but you can't have everything!

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.
