Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Just stayed at the Platzl for 4 nights with my spouse. This was our first choice of hotels based on location and TA reviews. I had emailed the hotel b/c I had a hard time booking on line. They were always prompt in responding to me and provided walking directions from the metro upon request.
Pros:
1. Location - close to Marienplatz, metro, hoffbrau haus, and restaurants.
2. Service - contact person, front desk, breakfast wait staff, door men and pretty much everyone we encountered was polite and helpful.
3. Breakfast - included, lots to choose from.
4. Rooms - I'd say they're nice and kept clean, but I wouldn't call them lavish. Towels and robes provided are old and scratchy. We had a pretty big room, but I believe we had a suite b/c I was informed it was the only room available.

Cons:
1. I would have really liked a digital clock in the room. We woke up every night due to a severe case of jet lag and it was impossible to tell what time it was. (Should we get up? Go back to sleep?) We had to get up out of bed several times to find a watch then turn on a light to check it. Maybe it doesn't go with the decor, but I would have loved to peek an eye open to see what time it was.
2. Expensive. I don't mind paying a high price for a great hotel, but this didn't come with the luxury one associates with such a high rate. (e.g. better quality towels, ammentities, services, etc) You're basically just paying for the location.
3. Noise. We were on the 1st floor. The street noise really only became a problem on Saturday night when there were more people out partying all night. The other nights were tolerable.

Overall we had a great stay and we appreciate the service we recieved. I would recommend this place to friends traveling to Munich.

Great service. Good breakfast. Small but clean, well-appointed rooms. Complimentary parking in Altstadt which was a great bonus. Great nightlife at the back door - Hofbrauhaus and Hard Rock Cafe. And many sites within easy walking distance from hotel.

The Platzl Hotel offers everything you would want in a hotel and at a reasonable price for it's location - a very friendly, helpful staff, wonderful rooms, restaurants, and a first-class breakfast that offers so much food that you can easily skip lunch.

This hotel is a leisurely five-minute walk from the Marienplatz, Munich's central square where you will find the famous Glockenspiel that plays several times a day. A couple blocks further is the Viktualienmarkt (outdoor market) which has over 100 shops and stalls. In the same area is the Asamkirche. One side of the hotel faces the famous Haufbrau Haus. If you're afraid this would be too noisy, don't be. For a few dollars more you can get a very quiet room on the courtyard. Don't miss eating at the Ayingers Inn, just around the corner from the Platzl.

Room Tip: If you're young, you won't mind a room on the Haufbrau Haus side. Older visitors might pref...

The location is perfect, just in the center, 3mn walk to Marienplatz.
We had a large room on the courtyard, so it was perfectly quiet.
The bathroom was large, very clean and well equipped.
Breakfast is really good and offers a large choice.
People at the reception are really friendly and helpful, sell subway tickets and do everything they can to please you.
We can only recommand this hotel.
The only small disappointment : hammam and sauna are very small.

Room Tip: One side of the hotel is above hard rock cafe and hofbrauhaus. So, better ask for a room on the cour...

Would stay there again and recommend to anyone. Perfect location. Wonderful warm staff. Fantastic breakfast. Next to Hofbrauhaus and Marienplatz. The front desk was helpful because we had to keep changing our tour reservations because we got sick. Felix was especially helpful!

I've stayed at the Platzl five times and am about to add stay number six in 2 weeks. I have never been disappointed with my room, the service, the cleanliness, or anything else - always top notch. The price is a bit expensive so I'd rate the value as very good , not excellent.

One of the real clinchers for me with the Platzl is the breakfast - the second best of any hotel I've stayed in worldwide.

The reception staff is always professional, courteous, and helpful as well. There is simply nothing to complain about with this fantastic hotel.

The location is another real key with the Platzl - you are literally right around the corner from the Hofbräuhaus and two blocks from the Rathauses (with the glockenspiel) and the market. The Marienplatz shopping is a short stroll away too.

When I'm on holiday, I look slightly across town for better value. But when on business in Munich, this is my first choice.

Beautiful hotel offering very clean and well organized rooms.
The breakfast in the hotel restaurant was outstanding, a very large variety even by European standards.
The spa on the top floor provided an excellent place to unwind and recharge. American travelers consider yourself forewarned: it is a European spa: co-ed and clothing optional!

The proximity to the Hofbrauhaus is convenient for walking, even it the rain. :)

Room Tip: The rooms facing the street can get some ambient noise overnight - I suspect the rooms opening onto...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
You place great importance on quality and want to be right in the middle of Munich's city life? Then Platzl Hotel Munich and its culinary offerings are the address for you. This traditional four-star Superior Hotel and its two popular restaurants - the Pfistermuhle and Wirtshaus Ayingers - are located in the heart of Munich's old city, right beside the famous Hofbrauhaus. And just a short walk from the Marienplatz, the Bavarian State Opera, Maximilianstrasse and Viktualienmarkt. The Inselkammer family and its team combine Bavarian hospitality and traditional style elements with a modern lifestyle and state-of-the-art technology. It begins with a warm welcome in the foyer, continues through the 167 guest rooms and only ends when you leave Munich through the city's historic quarter. This combination of tradition and modernity also creates the ideal setting for private celebrations such as birthdays or weddings, but also conferences and seminars. Your visit should also include a taste of the culinary offerings at our two restaurants - because gastronomy has a long tradition at the Platzl. As early as the beginning of the last century, the Platzl stage was graced not just by cabaret giants such as Karl Valentin. Good Bavarian food also made repeat appearances, being served to guests before and after the performances. Today, the Pfistermuhle is synonymous with sophisticated Bavarian cuisine - at Munich's only preserved city mill. Since the year 2000, people from Munich and elsewhere have enjoyed the hearty regional dishes at Wirtshaus Ayingers, which is next door, while the charming stores and eateries in the "Platzlgassen" add to the lively atmosphere in the Platzl. Our outside bar the Platzl Karree presents a unique bar concept in Munich's old town. Because of the stylish and yet down-to-earth design the fine balancing act between tradition and modernity with the Platzl Karree is perfectly realized. The dominating colors anthracite with burgundy and the dark parquet flooring create a bar to relax and enjoy. In the new Josefa Bar & Kaffee we serve locally produced unique spirits, cool beverages with herbs freshly from the Viktualien market and own cocktail creations. ... more   less
