The first thing to know about this hotel is that it is NOT part of a chain. It is unique and has its own charm. As others have pointed out, it is centrally located near the Munich HB (central station), a post office, and a Rewe supermarket. There are also lots of ethnic restaurants in the area, and a few "gentlemen's clubs." For the price I paid this was an excellent deal, especially since it included a great breakfast which included eggs made to order (omelet, scrambled, or fried). I was told that wifi was only available on the ground floor and that wired internet was available in the rooms. However, much to my surprise, I was able to get wifi from room 207.
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. They do request that you leave the key if you leave the hotel. Like many European hotels, the room is small but was nice enough and had a good desk for working on.
If you decide to stay at this hotel here are some useful tips:
The room doors use old style metal keys. I was in room 207 and to enter the room there was an outer door and then several inches in, there was an inner door. To lock/unlock the door requires turning the key TWO FULL TIMES. It is a little confusing at first because when you turn it once you do hear the bolt move, but it is not fully in or out until you turn the key a SECOND time.
There is an excellent Pakistani/Indian restaurant, Lahori Hajweri across the street. You have to take one flight of stairs down into the basement to reach the restaurant, but it is well worth it as the food was very good and very authentic!
It is easy to buy food at the near-by Rewe supermarket and you can keep your own drinks cold in the small mini-fridge in the room.
The room has a custom looking combination closet, bureau, TV cubby. The TV does swivel out to face the bed. If the TV does not turn on when you hit the power button, try pressing #1 on the remote. That is what worked for me. Alas they do not have very much in terms of English television.
Once you are in the room you must use your metal key to lock the door. LEAVE your key in the lock. That way you won't misplace it and in case of emergency you will not be fumbling with the key to get it back into the lock so you can unlock and open the door. This was one aspect that struck me as odd as it is possible to lock someone into the room since there is no way to unlock the door from inside the room if you do not have the key!
