“Central with historic charm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Another find thanks to Trip Advisor. We booked a Junior Suite and it was a lovely 2 room, large bathroom suite. A lovely outlook, very quiet with space for two to spread out, nice after a few weeks away. We stayed 5 nights and the help from reception was wonderful as were the staff in the breakfast room. It is really nice to have breakfast included in the room rate too.

Just a few steps from the train and walk to the marketplace and stacks of restaurants made the stay great. I would certainly stay here again.

There are many good reasons for choosing Hotel Torbrau. I think these are the best reasons for choosing the hotel:

- The hotel has a central location
- The front desk oozes solid hotel training and delivers consistently high quality service*
- The hotel is generally well maintained although a bit outdated when it comes to interior design
- Wifi is free of charge although not high speed

*As an example of the service the hotel offers: when we had to leave for an early flight the staff ensured that we were given free breakfast-boxes to eat in the taxi. Now that's how you make hotel guests leave a hotel on good terms.

The only downsides that I would recall are that:

- The hotel only has a tiny and old elevator (type: one person with two suitcases fills the whole space) and walking up the gigantic stairways may not be an option for all guests.

- The minibar is starved and you will have to rely on room service for example to get a soft drink, and the room service menu is quite uninteresting.

- There is no pay-TV/in-room entertainment system

- The rooms are priced at the higher end of the scale compared to what the hotel offers all in all. I would not go as far as to say that it's unreasonably priced but...

All in all -- it's the high quality staff that makes this hotel sparkle! With another type of staff, I would probably only have rated the hotel "average" instead of "very good" in light of the high-price-but-low-frills offer.

My family of four adults stayed here for three nights. We were in two deluxe rooms, each of which was spacious, comfortably furnished and bright with morning sunshine. The rooms were clean and the beds were quite comfortable. Traffic noise was modest, perhaps because there is some minor road reconstruction taking place on the street and certain access routes are closed. Onecof the best attributes of this hotel is its excellent location, which is only a short walk to Marienplatz and so many other preferred venues in the city center. There's also a metro / subway stop about 100 yards from the hotel entrance for those wanting to visit something further away from the city center, such as Dachau. We rented a car on our last night, and the hotel offered us parking at a very reasonable cost. I'd stay here again.

Torbrau is a great hotel experience. The location is ideal within a few minutes easy walk (5-10 minutes with backpacks) from the Sbahn-get off at Isator station. Also just a 5 minute walk to the Mareinplatz and Hoffbrau house! The rooms are very quiet and are spotlessly clean! The bed was the most comfortable in our entire European adventure. We would highly recommend this hotel to all of you future travellers! You won't be disappointed! We also enjoyed the Mike's Bikes tour and we'd highly recommend that!

This is a beautiful hotel within walking distance to the Marienplatz area where you will find the Glockenspiel, St. Peter's Church, the outdoor market and the Hofbrauhaus. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bed was incredibly comfortable with great pillows and comforters. The staff recommended a great restaurant for dinner and was very friendly. After a day of exploring Munich we sat outside of the restaurant to enjoy martinis and people watch. There is an excellent breakfast buffet that is included with your room. We would love to return to Hotel Torbrau!

I stayed at the Hotel Torbrau with my wife and 6 year old daughter for a long weekend and was made to feel very welcome. The staff have been trained to a very high level and were always extremely helpful and courteous. The hotel is located very close to Marienplatz and is in close proximity to a great selection of shops, restaurant, bars and Isartor S-bahn station.
Our room was comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was of very high standard as you would expect from a Bavarian hotel. Another great feature of this hotel was the free wi-fi - there is nothing more annoying than having to pay for this services in most other hotels.
We also visited the hotel's restaurant which served an extremely high standard of Bavarian food including the delicious in season asparagras. In summary I would highly recommend this hotel either to a business traveller or family wishing to stay in Munich.

The hotel is located in the very centre which is very convenient. Rooms are medium in size, clean and comfortable. On average breakfast buffet, which is a bit disappointing knowing what portions are usually known for Bavaria. There is a restaurant in the hotel but we didn't visit it, only bar in the 1st day.
In general a decent hotel. I would stay there again.
There are only 3 insignificant remarks.
1).On default they give us only 1 key from the room, which is not convinient if you divided and one of you came back earlier and decided to take a shower, it takes time to find a reserve key.
2). WiFi is free, but you need to ask WiFi password every 24 hours on reception.
3). We had 1bad but there were separate mattresses.
