From the start of the reservation process through to check out the employees at the Platzl Hotel we encountered were nothing but fantastic. Questions, revervation changes, restaurant recommendations, etc. Whatever we needed there was an employee on hand to answer, do, suggest.
The hotel is in a location that cannot be beat for touring downtown Munich, getting to Oktoberfest and sadly when it is time to leave it is also very easy to get to the train station. (It was not however easy to get to as we arrived during the second day of Oktoberfest and there was a huge parade that basically shut down all roads so the taxi could not even get us close - hey, the day was warm and sunny and the parade was a sight to see so it worked out okay! But for those thinking of going during Oktoberfest in the years to come I suggest a wee bit of planning could help you on that one!)
The breakfast buffet which is included in our room rate was incredible. We had spent about four nights travelling from Frankfurt to Munich and our breakfasts along the way could not compare - anything you could imagine wanting for breakfast was available to guests of the Platzl.
The room was spacious, well organised and exceptionally clean. It is not a criticism as I read reviews prior to selecting the exterior room and just a suggestion for those who might also be light sleepers that they think about booking an interior room - especially during Oktoberfest. (My husband had zero issues sleeping through the celebrations so to each their own!)
When we are ready to relive Oktoberfest I would absolutely, hands-down, no questions asked book the Platzl hotel for my stay.
- 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
