“Highly recommend, pleasant location, and a great manager"”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

My wife and I had a great experience! Monika (the owner/manager) is one of the most pleasant people to be around. She is always upbeat, helpful, and does everything with a smile on her face. She made us feel extremely welcome. We stayed for 4 nights in a double room (two twin beds put together) on the third floor. Our room did not have its own bathroom (other rooms do) only a sink, which worried us at first, but there were two shared bathrooms on our floor that were always clean and available to use. The rooms have no A/C but the windows open up and that kept the room comfortable, even in early August. Parking was extremely convenient and never a problem for us. The parking lot was just outside the front door of the Pension and cost 4 euro per night. Wifi was included but the connection wasn't always the best in the room. When we were on the 4th floor (where breakfast and reception is) the internet was always perfect. Breakfast was included and we thought it was sufficient but others might prefer more. It consisted of an assortment of breads, cheese, sliced meat, jams, Muesli, yogurt, boiled eggs, juice, tea and coffee. It takes place in a small room that at times required us to wait a couple of minutes for a seat, but no big deal. For us, the location was, for the price we paid, pretty good and easy on the eyes. The Pension sits right next to a giant arch on the main road and it was about a 15 minute straightforward walk to the city center (I believe two stops away by underground but we never used it) through the university district. There are some good restaurants around the corner and Monika gave us some good suggestions (we ate at a nice Bavarian restaurant and an Italian joint). Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again if we return to Munich.

This hotel was great! The building is historic and tastefully decorated. Very clean and comfortable room. The owner/manager Monika Clauß was very kind, attentive and it was helpful to us that she speaks English. The breakfast was pleasant and tasted good. She set out yogurt, granola, breads, spreads and also asked if we wanted meats, cheeses, eggs. The location of the hotel was great. It was near Marienplatz, the University, as well as lots of historic buildings and a park. I would definitely stay here again.

Pleasingly old-fashioned (WLAN is included, though), family-run hotel, well located and with a very friendly landlady. Reasonably priced, especially if compared to other hotels in Munich. Not all rooms have en suite bathrooms, but the shared bathrooms are absolutely clean. Breakfast isn't overwhelming but absolutely acceptable.

We stayed for 3 nights and found the place friendly and very conveniently located.
The room was large, but did not have private facilities which did not pose a problem. The bathroom was across the hall.
The breakfast was good and the owner was very attentive and helpful.
For the price it is very good value.
My only comment would be that I was not sure what floor the hotel was on when I arrived. The signage did not say.

We liked the convenience to airport and main rr station; the quality of breakfast; the friendliness of the owner and that she speaks English.

Me and my partner spent over two weeks in this hotel. It cannot be more conveniently located:from airport with S-8 to Marienplatz & then U-# for 2 stops to Universitaet. We toook advantage of the "Bayern ticket", a bargain at euro 26 for 2 & went to Ulm and Augsburg for the day. The rr station is only 15 minute from the hotel by subway and the ticket we bought was valid on the subway. Mrs. Clauss, the owner of the hotel speaks perfect English and serves superb breakfasts. Check the place on fb if you don't believe me.

Room Tip: The hotel is small, we stayed in room no. 36 which was quiet and spacious.

Hotel-Pension Am Siegestor truly is a home from home. A lovely old building full of charm and warmth is made all the more homey thanks to its owner, Monika Clauss, who greets all her guests literally with open arms.

The rooms are spotless, the breakfasts copious, staff charming. Frau Clauss is not only a fabulous hostess but also an inexhaustive one-woman show for tourist information, weather reports (!!) and transport advice. And the location is absolutely perfect. Bang in the middle of Munich with the U-Bahn just around the corner, you can get to just about anywhere in Bavaria without any difficulty at all - and indeed, cross over to Austria, too, on a day-trip.

This is our second stay at Hotel-Pension Am Siegestor and we would definitely go again.
I couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Room Tip: They are all good!
