“Decent pit-stop in Munich, but not much more”
Reviewed November 15, 2009

I needed a hotel for the night in Munich as we were to pick up a car here for a trip across Europe. I needed something close to the Hauptbahnhof (Main) since we were arriving by train and I needed to pick up the car at the airport. Plus, we were arriving in Munich on the last day of Oktoberfest. Because of that, rooms were slim pickins in Munchen.

The location is close to the train station, if you exit the station on the proper side (Bayerstrasse side). A short 2 or 3 block walk and you're there. The lobby is small and there is really no amenities like a bar or lounge. Reception was friendly and spoke English. I don't believe the hotel offers parking so you'll most likely have to park in a public garage, but there are a few close by.

The hotel is on a busy street corner, so sleeping with the windows open really isnt a possibility. The windows work well when close though to keep the noise out. We had to suffer a bit since the previous occupant of our room was a smoker, so we chose to keep them open. The rooms themselves are spacious and decent, in a minimalist sort of way. Everything seemed new, and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was a highlight, with a nice stand up shower-tub, and other modern touches.

There are many little coffee shops and restuarants in this area, so finding food shouldnt be an issue. Be aware that its more of a fast foody area, so to find a decent restaurant with a proper atmosphere you may have to wander into town. A walk down to the Marienplatz area will take you maybe 20 minutes.

All in all we found the hotel worth the price, and a pleasant enough place to stay for a night. If you're looking for atmosphere or romance, look elsewhere.

The hotel was selected by a colleague (recommended from a list of hotels provided by a trade show organiser). As a major trade show was occurring, and Oktoberfest was about to start, the availability and cost of hotels in Munich was an issue. This hotel was selected as we could get the number of rooms required at a reasonable rate.

The location (just off the central station) is in the Turkish quarter, and be aware of the peep show booths and sex shops around. About 6 minutes walk from the station and underground, and 10 mintues to the old town, it is handy enough. The reception staff speak good English.

The rooms were large (most with kitchens and living rooms - although the kitchens were not well equipped, but with a kettle although no tea & coffee provided). Bathrooms were nice enough, and fresh towlen supplied each day. Cleanliness was fine, some furniture was a bit ancient. Decor wasn't too inspiring / comfortable. The aircon didn't appear to work (cool down) and as the rooms mostly face the street, leaving a window open would not be an option.

The Atlas Residence has no eating facilities at all, you go around the corner to a sister hotel for this in the morning - only an issue when it's raining. Breakfast was fine, cold and hot buffet selection.

Overall it wasn't a bad hotel for the money, although given the location I doubt I would re-book.
