This hotel is very suitably placed, being 5 mins stroll from the Hauptbanhoff and well located for the centre. It's also only 15-20 mins to the Hofbrauhaus so who can argue with that?
Checking in was painless and the room was clean and well appointed. The bathroom was excellent and the minibar prices were quite reasonable.
Strangely for a hotel in a city, there is no bar as such but you can order drinks in the lobby and either sit in a very small 'garden' area or within the hotel.
There only seemed to be one waiter on in the restaurant in the evening and service was a bit slow, but there are plenty of excellent places in Munich within easy walking distance so I would opt for eating out.
Breakfast was fine, but there were 3 staff in the restaurant which, amazingly, improved service no end.
The one drawback to this place was the heat. It was incredibly hot in the rooms and there is no air-con. Leaving the window open would have been an option if it was not for the noise of the 'ethnically-diverse' neighbourhood nearby. So the option was - leave the window open and be subjected to loud noise for most of the night, or close the window and roast. I like my sleep so closing the window was the better option. At least unill 6am when the chap in the room next door turned his TV on and found '11' on the volume control. Fortunately, a quick call to reception solved the problem.
A nice hotel, but don't go in Summer when it's too hot, and find somewhere else for dinner.
