First, please note that this is a gay hotel. They are certainly straight-friendly and welcoming to all. But, just be aware that there is a gay sauna on the premises and most of the guests will be gay.
Now, having said that, as a gay man, I absolutely love this hotel. It is European, not American (e.g. Hilton, Marriott, etc). But, the rooms are nice sized (not large) and the bathrooms are fabulous. Housekeeping service is good - not overly attentive, but they keep the room clean. They have free wi-fi if that's important to you. The front desk is shared with the sauna, but someone is always available and willing to help.
The restaurant on the premises has the best German food in town.
The location is terrific if you want to be close (half a mile) to the Marienplatz and Viktualienmarkt. A tram line is at the end of the block.
The price is very reasonable, especially for the location and the services provided, except during the Oktoberfest. (But then again, NOTHING is cheap during the Oktoberfest.)
Note that there is a very small elevator, but unless you are on the 5th floor, you will have to either walk up or down half a flight of stairs. As an older man, that's not terribly easy for me with my suitcase and they don't have staff to help with luggage.
For the location, the price, the room size, the presence of an elevator, the close proximity of the restaurant, and a European style hotel, I choose the Deutsche-Eiche every time I stay in Munich and having been doing so for 20 years.
