“Nearly perfect modern hotel”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Although the hotel seems out of place being in a not so clean area of town, don't let that affect your decision. It is very convenient to the train station (and you can walk to Marienplatz from here in about 10 min). It is about 5 min walk from hotel to train, so no need for expensive taxis. Rail system in Munich is superb (always on time, fast, clean, modern, and safe)...
Hotel staff were exemplary in service, smiled, and accommodated all of my needs (and spoke English). I got the cheapest room but it was a bit too small, ok for one, but cramped for two. I'd recommend spending more to get the larger room, especially if you are from the USA like me and are used to larger rooms. A big plus at this hotel was the free breakfast buffet....excellent quality food and friendly and helpful staff. The modern bathrooms were excellent including the shower rain head from the ceiling. It was odd that for all the money spent on the bathroom (nice tile, high end fixtures and faucets, lighting, etc) that they chose to put a fiberglass floor in the shower despite having tiled walls....it was as if they ran over budget and made the cut here. But my only real gripe was the mattress (too firm for my taste) and the pillows ( way way too soft). Even with two under my head, I could never get enough support. Everything else was excellent....good water pressure and lots of fast hot water....bathrooms are well ventilated, and I never heard my neighbors, or outdoor noise (my room faced the courtyard on level 3). The flat screen TV and A/C worked without problem. The WIFI was great all except for 1 morning where for 3 hours it couldn't connect (I use my iPad during travel).

If they change mattress and pillows to better comfort, I'd have given them a 5 rating, but still very good value for $.

Room Tip: Get the larger room. The small room is too small for most couples.

I cannot say anything bad about this grand hotel. It is very centrally located (super close to the main train station), has large rooms and bathrooms, is VERY clean, and has an AMAZING breakfast with cook-to-order station and is INCLUDED in the room price! Very highly recommend this hotel to all!

Marc Muenchen is a great hotel for anyone doing business in or visiting Munich. The staff is very attentive, the hotel is designed well, and the breakfasts are first-class. It is also centrally located, minutes from the Central Train Station, and although the area around the hotel is not the best, it is very safe. It is a true boutique hotel with very reasonable prices. I stayed there for nearly a week when I was in Munich for a business trip, and I have zero complaints about the hotel

Excellent Service
I emailed the Hotel about our late arrival. Upon we arrived at the Hotel, the male staff could remember my surname and I thought that their service were so personalized.

We were upgraded to a larger room too, thanks so much!

Nice room
The room were clean and there was a bottle of sparkling water for us to drink.


Great Breakfast
Delicious and a lot of variety for you to choose

Nice and professional staff
He helped us to print the eticket for our flight though there was no printer for hotel guest

Reasonable Price
The price was good for its value

I must recommend to all my friends and expressed my thanks to all the staff !

Stayed there for 2 nights. Hotel is new, my room was large, nice free wifi with good speed, breakfast with good quality and assortment and price is competitive. They even provide a spray with essential oil to parfum your pillow before sleeping! Never seen this before. What else to request?

On the less positive side, despite the shower is very big, water pressure could be much better. other than that, flawless and would repeat. Location a mere 3 minutes from main central train station.

The rooms was clean and comfortable. They had very convenient parking (for a charge). The wait staff was very courteous. The breakfast (which was included) was very tasty and expansive. The reason I give it 4/5 stars is the location. Although it is fairly central to Munich center, it is quite a gritty neighborhood and in some parts didn't feel that safe to walk around especially at night.

Stayed 3 nights at the Marc Munich, and was so happy with my choice, after perusing numerous alternatives. For anybody arriving by train, the Marc is within 5 minutes' walk, and the shuttle bus for the Ingolstadt factory outlet centre departs from the nearby Sofitel Hotel. I was upgraded to an extra-spacious room, and the bed was firm and comfortable , with 2 armchairs, coffee table, writing desk and chair. Groovy colourful lighting options - red, blue, etc, and appreciated being able to open the window, as is the norm for most European hotels. Slept very well as it was very quiet, overlooking an courtyard, and the nights were cool enough without requiring airconditioning.

Proximity to the Hauptbahnhof (Central Station) is important as many tours depart from there, including the superb Dachau Labour Camp tour (http://www.dachautour.com/), not just for its historical content, but as a lesson on the ability of humans to survive the worst atrocities.

The staff are friendly, never failing to look up, smile and offer a cheery greeting as guests walk past, and always ready with suggestions/advice regarding local attractions. Free Internet was a bonus.

Enjoyed the breakfast buffet, which seemed more extensive than many standard European establishments, including a chef for made-to-order pancakes and eggs. The entire hotel feels very cosy as it is a boutique-style and furnished with tasteful colours and fabrics, in a somewhat cheeky way.

Highly recommend the Marc Munich!
