“location, location, location... and great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is reportedly one of the oldest hotel in the Munich's Old Town, dating back to XV/XVI century. It is a good 4* place, with all you can expect from such a place (no minibar in the room might be the only disadvantage, but there is a great bar downstairs).
The best thing about Torbrau is its location - 50 meters from the Isartor, which means majority of tourist attractions are within a walking distance. Additionally, the S-Bahn trains stop just 200 meters from the hotel entrance, thus you can get to/from the airport real fast (approximately 30-35 minutes). The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. Definitely this place is worth staying.

Excellent location ( a short 10 min walk to Center, Marienplatz) and excellent value in this European hotel: daily rate is excellent with large and comfortable room and an oversized bathroom; immaculate and staff is VERY obliging. A wonderful breakfast buffet, too. The hotel staff arranged for a private car to pick us up at the airport (and did this via email from New York).
More, the staff had a car ready for us to take us to the Rail-Jet Train on the day of departure with our destination to Vienna. Just a great experience and HIGHLY suggeat travellers consider this hotel when stayin in Munich. And while visiting Munich, do NOT miss the Victualienmarkt, The Residenz Palace as well as the Haxnbbauer Restaurant (all is walking distance from Hotel).
The Torbrau Hotel and, indeed, Munich is a destination not to be missed!
More, at he Tourist Info Center just beneath the famous Gluckenspiel at Marinplatz Center, arrange for a guided tour to Dachau.........an unforgettable experience !

We stayed at hotel Torbrau for a short break and we had a really nice experience. Rooms are very confortable and quiet, staff kind and willing to help and location great (just 5 minute by walk from Munich main square!). Complementary mini bar, then, has been a nice and unexpected surprise.
I would surely recommend this structure to other travellers.

I stayed for two nights in a single room, which was adequately equipped for my needs. The bathroom was excellent , quite new I think. Although small, the room had plenty of desk space and a suitcase shelf, as well as the single bed and wardrobe.
The staff were friendly and helpful. I thought the included breakfast was very good, with eggs cooked to order as well as the buffet selection.
The location is particularly good, being only a few steps from the S bahn entrance and an easy walk to all the main attractions of the old town.

I stayed five nights in this hotel with a group; my room was modern and comfortable with a pleasant view over rooftops; not enough drawers for two. The service was friendly, breakfast exceptionally good, and dinner in the restaurant one night was very good. The hotel is very central. I would happily stay there again

Spent three nights in Munich at the end of october so Oktoberfest was over and city was not too crowded. Hotel Torbräu has great location in old town and service was very good and friendly from the first arrival until the goodbyes.
Room was just basic level and we had a view mainly to the parking lot but everything was clean and worked well. There was no minibar but with excelent and not expensive room service it wasn't problem at all... Breakfast wasn't very versatile but quite tasty anyway.
Very much possible that I'll choose to stay in Torbräu on next trip also.
