“will never stay there again”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

The most unfriendly staff - by far - I have ever encountered. Acted annoyed if asked for directions or recommendations, and downright refused to provide any assistance with printing boarding passes for a flight leaving next day! I would never stay there again.

The Domus is very similar to other hotels which I have reviewed in the Lehel district of Munich. I stayed in a twin-bedded room which I would describe as comfortable and more than adequate for one’s needs. The bathroom had a bath which I always view as a plus point in hotels as it allows one to relax at the end of a busy day. The breakfast (included in the price) was fine and the lady who manned the reception desk was helpful. The internet connection (which had to be paid for) worked fine for me, so all in all I had the surroundings that I needed. The hotel fits into that middle range – not ‘tatty’, not luxurious but reliable, ‘smallish’ and not part of an ‘identikit’ chain. The plus point of Lehel is that you are in a residential district of Munich with its own character & small shops, yet you are within the metro system and the city centre & English Garden both are within short walking distances.

I stayed at the Domus hotel for 3 stays during a business trip to Munich. The hotel is not altogether bad but for the next trip I will look for another hotel.

Pros: clean, large room; good continental breakfast in friendly atmosphere; central location in a quite part of Munich very close to the Englischer Garten, Hofgarten and Haus der Kunst.

Cons: no wireless internet, just ethernet access to local LAN with 8P8C connector/cable; my access (with Intel MAC) to the LAN failed however despite repeated attempts and trying several configurations. When I asked the reception staff to inform me if the access to LAN works for other guests and to check if the connection is ok, I was quite rudely "informed" to try again. As a result I had to find a hotspot in a local coffeeshop to connect to email. For this reason alone and any lack of help from the hotel staff I would not recommend the hotel, at least for business trips if you rely on internet access to stay in touch with your business at home.

Additional cons: unfriendly staff at reception, no bathroom supplies except all-purpose soap, no coffeemaker or iron in room.

Very unfriendly staff. The hotel is quite outdated. There are much better hotels in Munich!

This hotel was book for me for a business trip in Munich so I didn't expect anything extravagant. Arrived on a Wednesday, planned to stay throughout the weekend as the conference ended on Friday. Informed the the receptionist that we were extending our stay for the weekend and would like to stay in the same room. She was very unaccommodating and seemed upset that she had to work to look up our other reservation. In addition, to the rude staff, there are no irons, coffee makers or washcloths in the rooms. Each floor has a iron room where you need to be escorted into before using the room. We booked a double bed for two people only to realize that we got two twin beds pushed together with two separate comforters.

With all the cons we experienced at this place, the location, however, was very convenient. It was located in a quiet neighborhood with quaint bars and cafes nearby. There U-Bahn is located steps away and Marienplatz is within walking distance.

If I had to go to Munich again I would not book a stay at this hotel but for free it's not that bad.

The Domus is in a quiet back street, easy walking distance from the Marienplatz and the Englisher Garten, but removed from the bustle and noise of the city center. A friend recommended it to us. He occasionally stays there during Oktoberfest.
Breakfast is included in the room price, and is substantial. If you plan to explore the city on foot, you'll need it.
If you plan to use Munich as a base, and travel further afield, the nearest subway (about 100 yards away) will connect you with the Hauptbahnhof, and from there you can travel to anywhere in Europe by high speed train.
The hotel staff are friendly, and speak English.

Some local friend recommended the Hotel Domus for our stay in Munich for five nights. The hotel is very well located in central Munich, close the city by foot or Underground. Rooms are clean (a little on the smaller side, but still good value for what we paid). The breakfast buffet provides a good start into the busy day exploring Munich. Staff is friendly and helfpul. Also, very trendy location (our friends told us). All good!
