From the moment we checked into the Platzl Hotel we felt like we stepped back in time into the heart of old Bavaria. This hotel has beautiful woodwork all throughout the building and even in the guest rooms. The lobby is grand and inviting. The complimentary breakfast is expansive and delicious complete with an actual honey comb! The location is superb and it is right by the Marienplatz and the Hofbrahaus! This is just an overall fantastic hotel and I will definitely stay here again next time I am in Munich!

I've stayed at this hotel on 3 separate occasions. It's wonderful! The location is literally less than a 5 minute walk to the Marienplatz. So close to all the wonderful things downtown Munich has to offer. On my last visit the airline had sent my checked luggage somewhere else; I was without toiletries, makeup, etc... for 2 days. Down a block and around the corner from the hotel were a small grocery store and a drug store. I hadn't known about these on previous visits and was happy to discover something new.

The breakfast at the Platzl is always excellent. I love eating 'German breakfast' and was not disappointed. Cooked egg, broetchen, deli meats, cheeses, yogurt, fruits..... it was all there.

The only complaint I had on this last visit was that my room (a little one since it was just me) backed up to the street that had a restaurant. The street noise was bad until about 2am; not a pleasant experience when trying to adjust to a new sleep pattern.

Dear alidoremi, thanks a lot for your really kind feed-back of your visit of Platzl Hotel. You are right: we are located in the real heart of Munich-centre and of course there are many pubs nearby and of course the famous hofbräuhaus. Some noise in the evening is nonavoidable.
We hope, we will see you again - best regards! Your Platzl-Team

We knew this hotel had great reviews and it's location was good. But seriously- we had no idea just how good. Everything and anything fantastic was just around the corner from this hotel. What a wonderful base we had for walking. Loved Munich- could live there. The hotel had the BEST breakfast of all the Europe hotels we stayed at. Whilst it is not huge by any means (particularly as we travel Asia a lot) but what was there was delicious and quality. Service was good too, but sorry- Prague and Paris really made us feel welcome whilst Platzl were just polite but not interested in asking us anything about where we have come from for where we are going to next, or any conversation really.. Not that it matters as a good room and good service are more important. It's just a nice touch.

This gem of a hotel is situated right in the very heart of Munich Old Town - two minutes walking from Marienplatz. The room is spacious and has everything you need. The hotel itself is Bavarian style, with massive doors and solid furniture. I just loved the breakfast - plenty of food and very delicious. The reception staff is always ready to assist. I also enjoyed Moorish kiosk at the top floor - good for relaxing after an eventful day. I have already been there two times and pretty sure I'll come again!

Room Tip: I loved the room facing the street better 'cause the cortyard ones might have some kitchen smell

We do not have anything to add to the fact that we truly enjoyed all three days of our stay in Platzl Hotel. There was not a single disturbing factor which by itself is very rare these days. Breakfasts were fantastic, bed - super convenient, staff - very nice and helpful, location is one of the best in Munich, what else would you need?

This is a great hotel, with very friendly personel. Not cheap, but value for money. Nice lobby with comfortable club chairs, spacious and clean rooms. We had a room with centre court view, which was very quite, although there were many noisy and drunk people in the street because of carnival. Breakfast was very good. Bathroom was clean, but a bit small.

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
