If you arrive in Munich via the main train station, take heart! We took the Gray Line Lufthansa City Bus from the airport to the train station. We got our luggage from the bus and walked with our luggage to the hotel. Although we arrived much earlier than our check in time, our room was ready and the friendly desk clerk checked us in. I hate it when hotels won't allow you to check in early even if your room is ready - especially after a 12 hour flight! The hotel is across the street from some type of seedy club that is frequented by Muslim men, but it wasn't loud or a nuisance, it was just a bit creepy. At any rate the hotel is very nice although it doesn't look fancy from the outside. The lobby area is very nice, but small when compared to a US hotel. It has a very nice breakfast buffet dining area that is full service with thoughtful waiters and staff. This buffet is expensive, but a very nice way to start the day. No other meals are served here that I know of. There is a little grocery store a block or two away if you want to eat on the run and cheaper or bring snacks back to your room. There is a little refrigerator in the room. There are also a number of nice restaurants in the train station. The hotel has an elevator that is full size like an American elevator. The hallways where the rooms are located are also very nice and clean. The room itself is high quality and large enough. No it is not as large as a suite in the US, but it is probably larger than most European hotel rooms. It has 220 volt wiring, so bring your adapters for electronics, etc. The bathroom is large enough and has a nice shower facility. One thing that is nice is that the door to your room is a safety door meaning that it is airtight like a door on a cruise ship. That means that no light comes in and it is much less noisy. Of course, in the event of a fire, no smoke would come in. We stayed for five nights and took Gray Line Tours every day. The tour busses load from the Karstadt Dept store which is across the street from the train station, so you are just a short walk from there. It is also within walking distance of the main downtown pedestrian city center of Munich. We really had nothing but positive experiences here and were delighted with the hotel. Finally, this hotel has something that a lot of Euro hotels don't have - free wifi! When you check in or each time you go by the front desk, ask the clerk for a slip of paper that gives you code for 30 mins of free internet. They are not stingy with the codes so you can get as many of them as you need each day and return the unused ones back to the desk clerk when you check out. The wifi was not the fastest, but was adequate for checking email and Facebook.
