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 $.
