“Excellent location, clean and warm, good breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2010

I stayed here for 2 nights with my daughter to visit the Christmas market. We were literally 5 mins from the main Marienplatz square and were able to pop back to warm up inbetween shops. The whole experience was magical with snow and Christmas cheer everywhere.
This pension is basic but homely with character. The most important thing to me is it was clean and warm and so near to the centre.
I would go again another year. Not sure what the summer would be like without air con. But as a winter retreat it was great.

This little hotel is very friendly and perfectly situated in the beautiful city of Munich. 8 of us stayed there on a stag weekend, it was basic but perfect for the type of break we were on.

The hotel is extremely reasonable and the breakfast was great, a good selection. We arrived later than expected due to a delayed flight, the lady welcoming us was very accomodating and friendly.

Would definately recommend this hotel to the budget traveller who wishes to be close to the city highlights

We booked Pension Seibel thru the Bureau of Tourismn at the Airport in Munich. We asked for a good 3 to 4 star hotel in Munich's City Center and this came highly recommended by the Bureau of Tourismn!!! Unfortunately we had to pay right there without having seen the Pension, thus, we had to take the room as they wouldn't give us the money back.

The Pension is upstairs above a shoe store of the same name. There is no elevator and there is no reception. The Pension was old, run down and smelled revolting. Our room was small with some old furniture that was probably salvaged from the garbage. The bathroom was small and unfinished with a shower. Overall the room and bathroom were unbelievably dirty and just disgusting, a disgrace for German hospitality. The breakfast was O.K., but there was not enough food for everyone. The staff was not very friendly and welcoming. The one and only thing that was positive was the location with everything within walking distance.

  • Liked — Location, close to all attractions
  • Disliked — Everything - most disgusting hotel ever

My wife and I and another couple were excited about staying in such a great location. Unfortunately, when we arrived in the early afternoon, we found that the management had given away one of our rooms, despite our "guaranteed reservation." We were given the option of two couples sharing a bedroom and bathroom in a room that resembled a hostel, or they would find us a couple of rooms in one of their "sister" hotels, which we were told had free parking.
Not wanting to be separated from the couple we were traveling with, we took the management up on their offer and set off to their sister hotel, which was miles away. As it turns out, that hotel did not have two rooms either, so one couple stayed there and the second couple went to yet another nearby hotel.
Located as it was on the outskirts of town, it was a long cab ride to the attractions we wanted to visit. Oh, the "free parking?" It was up to us to find parking on the street.
Although Munich was fun, this run-around hotel experience was not. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, based on the unprofessional way our reservation was handled.

The location is brilliant, walking distance to lots of attractions, However there is no elevator and there are rooms starting from the first floor so if you have heavy baggage beware.
The room was cute you could say, but with wobbly wooden stairs in the room leading to an unfinished bathroom and no bedside lights it was not so comfortable.
Breakfast was good and the staff friendly.

I just got back from a weeklong stay at Pension Seibel, and I have to say that all of the negative reviews are a little off-base. Yes, its entrance is next to a shoe store, but the name of the shoe store is also Seibel, and there is a sign that says "Pension" over the entrance of the pension. I found it with ease.

Anyway, I found the rooms to be clean and the beds to be comfortable. Our bed was up against the stairs, so it was little loud sometimes, but it wasn't anything too terrible.

The location is fantastic. It's a block from Viktualienmarkt (the huge market). It's only about a 5-7 minute walk from Marienplatz (the city center), and only a few minutes more to the Hofbrauhaus. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance.

The breakfast buffet is decent: meats and cheeses, pastries, rolls, bread, Nutella, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, milk, yogurt, apple juice, OJ, coffee.

The staff was so-so, but I didn't interact much with them. At no time did the cleaning staff knock on our door before 1pm.

This place is a shambles. We had booked here but they cancelled our reservation without even telling us. They then reinstated it but then cancelled it again because we didn't send a fax immediately containing our credit card details. The desk staff were rude and unhelpful over the telephone - I can't comment on the place as we didn't even make it there.
