Our family of four stayed at Hotel Uhland three nights in early September. We arrived on an early flight and came to the hotel where we were enthusiastically greeted. The gentleman who worked at the desk during the day spoke perfect English and was always ready to help us by answering questions or giving suggestions. Our rooms weren't ready but we were able to sit in the coffee lounge and use the bathroom to change clothes (after traveling 18 hours) and leave our luggage for the day. The hotel is on a lovely quiet street about a 10-15 minute walk from the main train station. It is only about 3 blocks from the Thereseweise U-bahn and about a 25 minute walk to Marienplatz. We walked it several times and enjoyed the walk especially after meals of sausage, pretzels and beer! The hotel is kept up very well and is very clean. The beds were comfortable and our large double room was very large by European standards. Our adult children had a regular double room which turned out to be a room with a double bed and then a small room off of that with another bed and a large bathroom. It worked well for our two grown children to share. The rooms were at the end of a hall and had a double door that closed off between our two rooms and the hall so we were able to close that and keep our room doors open and it felt like we had a suite! :-) It was perfect for us. The breakfast was served in a small, pleasant breakfast room and was typical for a German hotel with breads, meats, cheeses, cereals, boiled eggs, juices, coffee, etc. One morning we had been out dealing with a car rental issue and we got back too late for breakfast but the woman serving breakfast told us she hadn't put the food away and we should come and eat anyway. It really helped us out with our schedule for the day and we appreciated it very much. This is not a hotel that Americans would call 5 star-- with fancy amenities but it is 5 star in my book for the perfect European hotel experience I hope for--with helpful, friendly staff that go out of their way for you, large, updated, clean rooms with a comfortable mattress, in a quiet neighborhood and close to the sights. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hotel Uhland and would look forward to staying there again.
