“Dirty and not a pleasant stay”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I recently stayed here on a business trip to Munich and although I requested a non smoking room when booking, I was put in a smoking room! The room was dirty, it stank, the bathroom was in dire need of a clean and re decoration. I travel alot and this is most definately the worst hotel I have stayed in...

Room Tip: Don't bother

When we booked the hotel we were told that 1) there was on-site parking 2) there was internet 3) we had a non-smoking room. None of this was true. In addition, the room was FILTHY, worse than any hotel I have stayed at in my life and I travel a lot - mold everywhere, stains on the carpet, stinks, sink and shower wouldn't drain, etc. They required payment before we went up to the room (should have been a big clue) we went down and asked for a new room, they said no. We asked for a refund, they said no. They were rude and condescending, we went back to the room and tried to make the best of it until I walked around the bed and my shoe stuck to a stain on the floor. We packed up and left, after 5 months we are still fighting with them through our credit card company - absolute nightmare and completely unprofessional. DO NOT STAY AT HOTEL MARIA MUNICH!

Room Tip: Rooms are filthy, they do not have internet access, they lie in their advertising, hotel is ugly, wo...

The photos for this hotel are so deceiving I wouldn't even rate this 1% if it was a hostel or motelit is that gross.
The only good points for us were it was lose to Oktoberfest and the lady at front desk was helpful and polite , it ends there !
The bathroom stank the floors were dirty the double bed wasn't a double just2 singles pushed together.
There was mould and rust in the bathrooms.
We paid just under 1000 euros to stay 3 nights and feel completely ripped off I would rather pay that money to stay in a nice hostel!
I'm sure there are plenty of other nicer places around use this as a last resort !
I read the reviews and thought people were being fussy that is defiantly not the case listen to all the prior reviews !

Room Tip: Just do not stay here full stop

While the hotel rooms were tidy and clean, the noise in and around the hotel was hard to ignore. People in the courtyard were partying late into the night, and work being done out on the street made that side of the hotel noisy. The hotel is conveniently located if you can sleep through the racket

We are a travel agency in Genova and in November 2011 we booked 5 rooms for 2012 Oktoberfest.
The 50% deposit was due on August 5th (to be debited to our credit card) and the settlement at clients’ arrival at the hotel.
The group cancelled the reservation, but we forgot to advise the hotel before the deadline for the payment (a mistake of ours). As soon as we realized the mistake, we tried to get a reduction of the penalty and ask to know until when the penalty remained 50% (as not specified anywhere) in order to resell the rooms to somebody else.
Despite several phone calls, we were not able to get this piece of information. For weeks we have been trying to talk to the director or somebody else in English without success. They answered in German only and we had to translate in German (though the confirmation was written in English!)
When we decided to cancel the rooms as they never answered to this question, the surprise was that they debited the 90% of the total amount of the stay to our credit card. They informed us about it – in German – only after the debit was made.
We are not criticizing the first debit (even if normally hotels are more understanding) but the second one..
It is the first time in all our 30-year-experience that it happened to us. Really very unprofessional. A piece of advice: never give your credit card details to the Maria Hotel in Munich!!!

Booked this hotel while on the road in route to Munich. First impression when arriving was a little disappointing since a lot of the entryway and hallways were under construction. However, we were more than impressed with our room which appeared to have already undergone construction. Very modern and clean. Morning construction noise made sleeping in a little tough but based on our completed room the hotel will be top notch once completed. Just a few growing pains. For the price we could handle the slight inconveniences. Excellent breakfast as well by the way.

We should say that we booked this hotel through hotwire.com but we don't know how much this affected the price.

The hotel was simply not nice as it was under construction; no carpets (just concrete) in the hall ways, construction noise during the day and our room didn't feel finished. Room looked stylish, but didn't appear well put together (a bit fell off the toilet doorway).

The breakfast was nice and did bacon and egg :-)

"central location" is cheeky as we used the tube to get into the centre (though only a couple of stops)

Also it was just too expensive.
