“Spectacular use of Marriott points”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had one day/night in Munich following a river cruise and were using Marriott points; this hotel was among the lower levels as far as point cost, and we couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised...as other reviewers have mentioned, it was terrific. Modern spotless rooms, very comfortable bed, quiet area, incredibly helpful front desk staff, and a superb & enormous breakfast included. The location was great - 2 blocks' walk to the Ostbahnhof and just 3 stops away from Marienplatz. The parking is pricey if you use their garage, but there is on-street parking for just 6Euros for 24-hours, and we had a spot directly in front of the hotel.

Great room, great house-keeping, new and very functional room, super front-desk people (especially Hanna & Leena), amazing breakfast buffet included, free wireless internet, perfect location to major train station. Absolutely no complaints...we stayed seven nights and will definitely return. HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR TOURISTS AND BUSINESS TRAVELLERS.

The hotel is very nice, in a fairly close location to the train station. Rooms are clean have the amenities that one needs complete with a kitchenette counter with a microwave, stove, and utensils. Very nice hotel, breakfast with many items including hot food. Front desk staff fumbled at checkout. We suggest that seasoned staff stand with trainees. This hotel met all of our needs while we were in the area! Very expensive at Oktoberfest time, but we found the value in the hotel's newness and location to the train station. Just a short ride to Oktoberfest one way or the city main the other way!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the courtyard side of the street, it is quieter.

I really enjoyed my stay here and recommend this hotel. It's in a great location, just a 5 minute walk from Ostbahnhof where you can get connections for trains, S-Bahn, subway, buses and trams. The hotel is only a year old and I found the room up-to-date, comfortable and quiet. I was impressed to find a Nespresso espresso/coffee maker in my room, along with a stove, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. The fitness center is decently equipped for a hotel (mix of cardio, dumb bells and multifunction weight machine). The staff at the front desk and on the floors were courteous, friendly and professional. My only disappointment was the WiFi service. I found it to be so unreliable in my room, that I ended up just using the data plan on my phone (luckily I had a German SIM card and didn't pay roaming fees). Hopefully, this was just my room and not every room.

Tip: Taking the public transportation around Munich is much easier than driving or finding a parking space. When you go to Ostbahnhof to buy a ticket, you may want to use one of the self-serve machines. Just be sure to press on the picture of the British flag on the bottom of the screen to change the language to English. This will make life much easier, unless you read German.

Tip 2: If you go during Oktoberfest, you may want to send postcards home to friends and family. The German Post Office (Deutsche Post) has a temporary substation at the festival. If you mail your postcards here, they will receive a special Oktoberfest postmark.

Room Tip: Select a room that is not on Orleansstrasse. This is the road in front of the hotel and it is relat...

We stayed for a month and felt like we were living in our own place. We were just a short 5 minute walk from the Ost Bahnhof train station where you can also get the "S" Bahn. The room was extremely clean and efficient. We had numerous dinners in the room and had every modern feature except an oven. The morning buffet had a good assortment of local and international items. The buffet is shared with the Courtyard, so at times it was very crowded. The staff was very friendly and helpful and had no problem communicating to them in English. We had a room on the street which had a view of the trains, and had no problem with any noise. The room was very quiet. Munich is a great city for bicycling and it would be great if they had bicycles. Since we were there for a month, we purchased used bikes from a local bicycle shop at a great price. The front desk gave us that advice.

We stayed here for 4 nights using my other half's Reward Points and, to be honest, weren't expecting too much.
But we were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is very new - only just a year old - and the studio rooms are brilliant.
Not only spacious for 2 people but also clean, well-decorated and with fridge, dishwasher, hob and all the crockery, cutlery and glassware you could possibly need.
There's a sofa, a couple of tables & chairs plus a large glass desk and ample wardrobe space plus an in-room safe.
Great and efficient free wi-fi throughout the hotel.
The hotel is just a few hundred yards from the Ostbahnhof which has excellent connections. All 7 S-Bahn lines run from here, making it amazingly simple to go anywhere from the city centre sights to the airport. Also 2 U-bahn lines so we were able to go directly to the Oktoberfest ground in about 10 minutes.
The highlight, though, was the included 'continental' breakfast. We expected something along the lines of Express by Holiday inn with a limited choice - how wrong we were!
There was a terrific buffet with fresh fruit salad, fruits, cold meats, cheeses, pastries, hot food like bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs, baked beans, hash browns - I could go on but I'm sure you get the picture.
The reception and housekeeping staff were helpful and cheerful - special mention to Wilson who, despite the hotel being fully booked, was kind enough to give us a late checkout until 2pm as we had an evening flight home.
Can't comment on value for money due to using points but I would highly recommend this hotel as an ideal base for a few days in this fascinating city.

Room Tip: Room 521 is at the far corner of the top floor, facing the street. Very little noise from below and...
