Booked this at the last minute. Got a free room upgrade through TripAdvisor link.
Located a couple blocks from the main train station so very convenient to public transportation. Would agree with other reviews about the neighborhood but also did not feel like this was a big problem or that I was in any danger.
This definitely looked like the nicest hotel in the area. The main tourist attractions/city center/Marienplatz area could be reached on foot in about 15 min. Otherwise, the train station is so close that you could hop on the metro for 2 stops and be at Marienplatz in minutes.
Staff was extremely warm and professional. (Every single one of them!)
We got there early and they were able to get us checked in within 20 minutes - and did not make us feel like this was an imposition. The hotel looks like it has been renovated recently, with modern, comfortable decor.
The deluxe room was spacious with a true king size bed (not two separate mattresses pushed together, as is typical in Europe).
Bathroom was spacious, with a large rainshower. Extra touches like pillow spray and aromatherapy sticks were nice.
There is a kettle with teas and instant coffee in the room as well as a small refrigerator/minibar.
I was impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel. Attention to detail is obviously a priority here.
Street noise could be heard from the 3rd floor only when the windows were open but it was extremely quiet when they were closed.
The breakfast buffet was outstanding. Breads of all kinds, cereals, yogurts, fresh fruits, pancakes, waffles, ham and cheese toasties, boiled eggs, an egg/omelette station - cooked to order, cold meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, stuffed peppers, salads, cucumbers, tomatoes, bacon, sausages, a plethora of jams/jellies/preserves and 3 kinds of honey. Huge selection of gourmet teas along with a coffee machine that will make any kind of coffee or espresso - based drink. You get the picture.
Wifi was reliable throughout the hotel, including our 3rd floor room.
It may seem a little pricey compared to other hotels in the area but it is definitely worth it. I would not hesitate to stay there next time I am in Munich.
