Hotel Luitpold
Ranked #188 of 385 Hotels in Munich
Reviewed October 7, 2012

If I could travel back in time for only one day, I would use that one opportunity to cancel my reservation at Hotel Luitpold.
The staff are universally, overwhelmingly rude. They refuse to speak English and interrogated us about having 2 guests in our double room IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY. They were hostile towards us, unabashedly so, to the point where we avoided coming back to the room we paid so much money for. I have never felt so uncomfortable, unwelcome, and disgusted in my life. I have stayed in a variety of hotels, from motels to 5 star resorts, and Hotel Luitpold is unquestionably the worst place I have ever been. We even considered sleeping in the street over this hotel. The beds were tiny, there were bugs in our room, but all of that aside, the customer service was ATROCIOUS. Keep out of this hotel, stay away from its staff, particularly the older gentleman who enjoyed screaming at a couple of young girls who were just trying to get the key to their room. The key which they keep hold of like their life depends on it. Hotel Luitpold felt more like a prison than a three star hotel, complete with guards on a power trip. It's an awful, awful place. STAY FAR AWAY.

Room Tip: The elevator barely works, so try not to stay on the top floor

Hotel Luitpold doesn't get any more central than this. It's right on the pedestrian walkway and only a 5 minute walk to the best restaurants and bars.

The hotel is very clean. It would have been nice if Luitpold had their own pub or lounge area, but they don't, so we had to go out of the hotel even just to chill out.

The price of the room was totally inflated, but I expected that for the height of Oktoberfest. If you sleep with the windows open at night (which you sort of have to, to cool the room down), then be forewarned that the bar patrons get loud and roudy at 3am as they're leaving the bars. Personally I slept right through it.

I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: I stayed in their top floor "apartment" which sleeps 4 people, but even the regular "...

PROS: Very clean - Good breakfast and very attentive server and a lovely setting - Excellent location - Convenient price, considering that it includes breakfast - Towels and linen nice & crisp.

CONS: No internet (was told that they have Wii Fii in the hotel - via Telekom for a fee - but could not connect as signal was poor) - Sewer smell coming from the pipes in the bathroom (we had a higher room) - TV is an old miniature, with only German channels (CNN is on 2 hs at night) and very bad reception - Toiletries are almost inexistent, so, thake your own! - Beds are very hard and pillows very uncomfortable.

I stayed previously in this hotel (a few years ago) and the standard has gone regretfully down!

The hotel is right in the middle of action and very close to the Railway Station. In spite of that it is in a very clean and safe locality. Place of interest such as Marien Platz are near by, in a walking distance. All the city tours start nearby, making it very convenient to cover all of the city with ease.

Breakfast is adequately good and ample.

Room Tip: Look for rooms at the back of the hotel since they are quieter at night.

Right in the centre of the city opposite to the Central Train station. It is very close to restaurants of different varieties. For those who fancy Halal food then feel at home. It is 10-minute walk to Marienplatz and only short walking distance to shopping areas. The rooms are average in size but adequate with nice big window well decorated and furnished. Bathroom is small but adequate too. The breakfast is very good and has many varieties where the waiter is eager to serve you with a smiley welcome. The breakfast area is nice and light. Most importantly the receptionists who are the family members who own the hotel. They are very helpful and polite especially the senior person who owns the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel and do not hesitate to stay in it when I visit Munich again.

We have stayed at Hotel Luitpold on several occasions over the past eight years. It never fails to deliver good value in an excellent location for visitors to Munich. A clean comfortable room with a good breakfast and friendly helpful reception staff is more than adequate. We stayed for three nights at €47.50 each for bed and breakfast in the city centre - fantastic value. There is only one slight crib - the room this time was small with a tiny bathroom/wc with a sliding door. No problem sharing it with my wife but it may be problematic for a couple of friends sharing a room?!
