“Hotel awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2010

Hotel awful. It is conveniently located in city centre. But opposite to hotel the Arabian cafe in which Arabs loudly sing songs is located and shout since morning till the late evening. Rooms in hotel very small also are badly equipped. Floors creak. Photos of rooms on a hotel site do not correspond to their actual condition. The owner of hotel does not put up money in repair and reconstruction many years. Ventilation in rooms is not present. Fresh air can arrive only through a window that in very inconveniently winter. Very bad acoustics in rooms. We well heard even quiet conversation in the next rooms and from a room above. A breakfast poor, very small choice of dishes. This hotel cannot have 4 stars. A maximum of 3 stars should be. I do not understand people to whom this hotel was pleasant. There can be it friends of the owner of hotel? Unique plus of this hotel a convenient arrangement in city centre.

Hotel location is very good, on a quiet street just two blocks from train station, and also two blocks from Stachus, where the main pedestrian street starts. Double door system in the room prevents hearing noise from the hall. Breakfast had good variety. On the negative side, my single room was a bit small.

We stayed in Alpen Hotel for two nights.One at the beginning and the other, one week later,at the end of our trip to the Italian Dolomites.
Great location,3 min walking to Munich HBF ( with direct train to Munich airport),5 min to Karlsplatz and 8-10 min to Marienplatz . Easy acess to all the Munich main sights on foot or by metro. Great value in central Munich.
The Hotel ifself is lovely,it seems more like an house,with beautiful details and lovely staff.
We had a triple room which was comfortable and very clean.
Good breakfast and great service.We had a dinner one night at the hotel restaurant and the food was very good and well priced.
I have no doubt... I will stay always in Alpen Hotel when in Munich!

My family had three rooms for 10 days during Christmas break. Convenient location, nice staff, great breakfast, clean and quiet rooms, we had a great time. We would stay here again and recommend Alpen Hotel.

The Alpen Hotel is very conveniently located to the main Munich train station on a quiet side street. The staff was very professional and extremely helpful. The interior is very lovely and has an elegant yet homey feel to it. The elevator was interesting. The room key is large (you won't lose it) - just don't drop it on your foot :-)! The room was very clean and pleasant with a comfortable mattress and a big window. There was also a well stocked mini bar. The shower had good water pressure. There was a full breakfast buffet included in the room rate that had everything you could possibly want for breakfast (and then some). The coffee was very tasty and they had some out in the lobby for the afternoon as well. Overall, I thought this was a very nice hotel at a reasonable price and would recommend it highly.

My Mother and I took a side trip to Munich and needed a hotel at the last minute. We located the Alpen and booked for 2 nights. Because we were taking the train, I wanted to find something in close proximity to the station. The price is not "cheap" so this is not a budget hotel but we got more than we expected for the price. Our room, while small, was the perfect size for 2 people. The staff was warm and friendly (although a couple of them need a couple minutes to warm up). The breakfast was great! I will certainly stay again and would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Munich. It is also located very close to the main section of the city, maybe a 7 minute walk to the entrance gate.

Was leery of this place b/c of its proximity to the train station. Neighborhood felt at first a bit shady but turned out to be VERY safe. Staff could not have been more helpful and the breakfast was out of this world! Every b'fast food you can imagine plus quick service for those (included) double cappucinos. And turned out to be a quick walk--maybe 3-4 city blocks--to Marienplatz. If you are coming into Munich for a brief stay & need easy access to the train, the town, and want a perfectly nice clean room, this is the place!
