Reviewed September 29, 2012

We got a great deal for this hotel. We needed a reasonably placed hotel near the train station for an overnight stop. The rooms were dated but clean, We had asked for a room at the back and the room was very quiet. I would imaging the rooms at the front are very noisy. The breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts we have had at a city hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back.

This hotel is located about a pleasant 10-15 min walk away from the Centre of Munich. Having read some previous reviews about the location I was not really sure what to expect ie sex shops, casinos etc yes they are located around and about but they are not that evident and the street certainly is not seedy. The only place I can equate it to is the bottom of Edgeware Rd in London although not as wide or busy Certainly nothing to worry about. Once inside the hotel the room was a very generous size the beds are certainly comfortable and the shower powerful (cant ask for much more than that) We had a room on the back which was quiet as everyone has eluded to on previous reports The staff are very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was second to none The prefect way to set you up for a days sightseeing.
Would I stay there again? Certainly
Value for money ? Definitetly

We stayed here for a stop over as it was close to the train station. The room was quiet but lacked air conditioning and a mini bar, also no free wifi is available. The breakfast was good, the room was clean. Loved the little sweets on the bed too !

Room Tip: we were at the back of the hotel and it was quiet

The room is quite large for a family but there isn't air conditioning and with the windows open the noise of the traffic is very high!
The hotel is situated near the center of Munich but it is in a street were there are a lot of bar and night clubs, so the noise, if you have e room open on the main street, is terrible!
The breakfast is good, the best that we have eat in Germany in hotel.
Appreciated the cheap parking for the car that the hotel offer.

Room Tip: Rooms on the court are more confortable

Overall, I was not impressed with this hotel. It did have nice decor in the rooms, breakfast was great, the staff was friendly, and the hand soap was nice. Otherwise, wi-fi costs 5euro/day and in my opinion this is something that comes standard/free/included with this type of hotel. There was a lobby computer that you could use for free for 20 minutes at a time so this was nice to have at least some access without paying. Also, this is not located in a very nice part of town - there are bars, casinos, and strip clubs lining the whole block. I liked that it was close to the train station and city center, but there has to be something better than this.. Street was always fairly noisy and since there was no air conditioning, I had to leave my windows open for air flow, thus the sound traveled in too. Upon asking to move to a room across the hall (on the backside of the hotel), I was told that would not be possible. I think this hotel should have been cheaper for what it offered. There was nothing "presidential" about it.

Hotel is on Schwanthaler Strasse corner Schiller Stasse a 10 minute walk from the Train Station.
It is on a busy Street.
Has a small "Lobby", The rooms are small and consist of a doble bed and to 2 nightstands a desk with a flat screen TV and has a nice large Bathroom. If you only need to sleep in the room and do not need a large space to relax in a easy chair it is a good place to stay. I had a room at the street side and despite dobble pane windows you still could hear the noise from the cars and people talking below at 3 AM. Also the room was very warm due to the mid day sun but they have a fan.

The best in this hotel is the Breakfast. I would say it is the best Breakfast in Munich or even in Germany when Breakfast is included in the price of the room and I have been to more than 15 Hotels in Munich over as many years and to some more than once. Only the Hotel Cristall on same street had a better one, with Wine, Champagne, fresh made Orange Juice and other things which you never found and find anywhere unless you pay 25 Euro and up for Breakfast. That was some time ago but now they charge extra for it and I have not been back since. Also their rooms went up which to around 130 - 150,- Euros.

Another thing to know, If they have a " Special Discount " with no cancelation they charge your Credit Card at the time you make the reservation even if you arrive 3 or 4 months later.

I would give this Hotel a Rating of good but there is no GOOD RATING on this site, this is unusual that they have Average and then Very Good , Tripadvisor shure screwed up here !!!

Room Tip: In the back of the Hotel.
