“Christmas stay at Hotel Excelsior 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Our 1 week Christmas stay at Hotel Excelsior 2012 was very good indeed.
Booked 6 nights on website special rate.
The whole hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas "wonderful"
We stayed in one of the older traditional style luxury double rooms on the top 5th floor.
We were asked if we wanted to upgrade to a renovated Alpine room, but being Christmas we preferred the smaller (Cosey) older style decor and furnishings of the luxuary double with marble mirrors, wood paneling and beautiful light fittings. The TV was older in design but then who cares when the only channel in English is BBC world news !
The whole hotel is clean and well managed.
Realy quiet on the top floor of this hotel & the bed was very comfortable so good nights sleep.
Breakfast was perfect when included in the room rate it's great value.
A good hot breakfast selection and a vast selection of pastries fruit yogurts cheeses cold cuts.
The hotel bar is small but fun with friendly bar staff. We had a great pre Christmas evening sampling cocktails beer & schnapps !
All the staff were friendly and helpful at the Hotel Excelsior.
Great location, 1 minute from train station, centre of Munich.
Good free wifi (on our rate)
Will book room again next time I visit Munich.

Room Tip: Ask to see rooms as they do vary in taste and some of the older rooms are actually very attractive...

Hotel was in an excellant position. Less than 5 minutes walk from the main train station and on the main road to the Marienplatz for the Christmas markets.
Desk staff were very friendly and helpfull. Upgraded to the Alpin rooms on the second floor.
The rooms were very high spec.Ideal for a luxury city visit.

Room Tip: Although romm 224 was fantastic. About 3am the water pipes noise did wake us up.

The hotel is in a great location. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic! The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and willing to assist in any way. The room was big and the bathroom was fabulous !! Highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: May want to stay away from elavator - it can be noisy.

This hotel is old but with only very limited charme. The standard rooms are very small and mine had a 20" TV of the old type. Haven't seen that around for years. Extremely small bathroom to an extend where using the toilet is difficult.
Good complementary breakfast and well placed in the end of the pedestrian street.

The hotel is very well located. Only a few minutes walk to the main sites including Marianplatz. Rooms are comfortable and the staff very helpful. Best to book in advance as prices can soar if you leave it to the last minute.

Room Tip: Junior suite had plenty of room.

We were three friends who had three single rooms for two nights during the Oktoberfest. The hotel is situated opposite Hauptbahnhof (the central station) and 15 minutes walking distance from the festival ground. The hotel itself is clean and well equipped with everything you can expect of a four star hotel. Our rooms faced the courtyard which meant that we slept without disturbance from the outside world. The breakfast price was as well the room prices high, so we chose the good coffee bar right opposite the hotel for our breakfast.

Stayed there one night to visit the city. Since was oktoberfest most of the hotels in the city were packed or charging at least 3x the normal value. The hotel is nice located and in general is a very good balance in price/product. The room that I stayed was really tiny, but apart of that no problems.
