“Fantastic Location near the München Hauptbahnhof”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Weary travellers will be delighted with the short walk from the Munich Central Train station (München Hauptbahnhof) to the Pension Locarno, as well as the friendly welcome in reception. The hotel itself is nothing special, although the rooms are spotlessly clean, but the real attraction is the great location for a short stop in Munich at a competitive price.

Stayed here in a triple room, two seperate rooms in this one! Room was oposite the shower and toilet room which was handy.
Check in was nice and easy, the lady even allowed me to check in early which was great!

Good for the price and location!

I stayed at this hotel on the second weekend of Oktoberfest. The hotel was in a great location with only one stop on the train or a short walk to all the Oktoberfest festivities.

Unfortunately this is where the good news ends. The room was small but had a wash basin in each, which was great in the mornings as there was usually a line for the shared shower and toilet and the shower was so small that you could barley dry yourself. The breakfast was included but was very basic with only some bread, spreads and ham with some very watered down juice. The Wifi also seemed to drop in and out at times which was a little annoying however it was free so cant complain too much.

Im sure there are plenty of hotels around the same area at the same price so i suggest shopping around a little before you decide.

Room Tip: Would recommend asking for a room not facing the street as the hotel is on a fairly busy street and...

Munich is our stopover on our way to Austria and we were looking for something simple, clean and close to the main train station. This hotel fits the bill very well. Having been to many budget hotels years before I was very impressed with the friendly and helpful attitude of the gentleman and lady we encountered at the reception. Our room was spacious, again considering the room charge. The hotel has wired internet outlet and they even lent us the cable as we did not bring it with us. The wired internet worked very well and we created our own hotspot for our other devices. We had to share WC and bathroom with two other rooms, not convenient but it was only for one night.

OK so I gave Pension Locarno Very Good. Well it's Average at best but what it looses in the fact that it is average it did make up in customer service.
This place is, from my understanding a Ma and Pa operation, but after taking the night train from Berlin to Muncih, with my somewhat older father, and getting into Munch at 8am (and hotel checking in times usually not until about 2pm at best) these guys were not only happy to let us check in at 8am but also gave us a room straight away so we could shower and catch up on the sleep that we didn't get on the supposed 1st Class night train from Berlin.
Firstly the lady owner was so nice and fully understood that I was traveling with my dad that she just gave us a room straight away. OK so the room had the slight smell of cigarettes and was not better than staying at the old family beach house but hey, we smelt worse and just wanted to freshen up.
Durring the course of our stay they were both so helpful. They fully excused all of my Australian version of German and were more than helpful with directions and guidance of Munch. Being my 3rd trip to Munich I thought I had it down pack but they recommended some great things to see and do.
As much as I didn't think that the place was either a high or a low to stay at, over the course of our trip, I did buy the owner a bunch of flowers based solely on the customer service which was over and above even some 4 hotels that I have had to stay at.
P.S Pension Locarno is one of the closest places to stay to the HB Hoff and only about a 10 min walk to so many great attractions and the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus is 2 minutes walk away.

Room Tip: If you are going to Munich for Octoberfest I would definitely recommend you stay here if on a budget...

This is a budget hotel so don't expect all the bells and whistles.
It is clean and they serve up a very acceptable breakfast.
The location to the main railway station is superb. You can walk down to the subway without crossing the stree and step directly into the station. It is also close to the pedestrian walkway that leads to the Marienplatz.
A well run little family hotel
