“Perfect location for train travelers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

When we arrived we had a really sweet welcome by the reception lady. She helped a lot with saying some things about the city, answered our questions etc.
We got the room on the 4th floor, we got a shower in the room but no toilet. Toilet is shared but that was not such a big issue. Breakfast is on the first floor and it was AMAZING, in comparison to other similar price places we definitely were more then happy. A big variety of things to eat so probably everyone can find something for their appetite.
So i really can't understand why there are so many bad reviews. I think is just unfair for the place.

Its really a hotel for someone who is on a very tight budget. Almost all the rooms dont have a private toilet or Shower. They are in the Hall , Shared with rest of the 10 rooms on each floor. There are only 5-6 rooms in the hotel that have a private shower and toilet. The hotel is very near to the main railway station but that means it is surrounded by all kinds of Bars and strip club joints, and if your room is on the side of the building facing the road, be ready for a sleep less night. The rooms are clean but the furniture is old , very very old. The bed is not at all comfortable, it was not in my room. The hot water is not that hot. The rooms are cold, radiators dont work properly and the so called FREE INTERNET is as good as not present. The Wi-fi Signal is very very weak. The only good point about the hotel is the decent Breakfast in the morning. And you cannot pay by a card, Only cash and that too complete rent upfront.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the road.

Its a real rip off; dirty, noisy, not even a piece of soap, and the promised "free" WiFi is a 5 minutes trial of a free Munich service provider.
its not worth the money!

I stayed in this hotel with a group from My company, so I know every room there, The rooms are average in size, poor rooms, not too clean, they clean the room upon your request, some rooms have smell, shared bathrooms not clean, they have a left, great location on a main street.
Overall is ok if you travelling alone with limited budget. but you need to double confirm your booking details.

This Oct.'08 stay represents my most recent stay (out of 4 total) at the Pension Augsburg. Comments would apply to all of these visits.

Pros: - Fantastic Location...within one block of the Hauptbahnhof!....a 15-20 minute easy walk from the "Marienplatz", Munich's Central Square.
- Great Value...given it's location.
- Most staff are courteous, helpful & accommodating.
- A large variety of restaurants/cafes, shopping, internet/call centers, theaters, nightlife options, etc.. available in immediate (active, but relatively safe) neighborhood.

Cons: - You may experience difficulties IF unable to handle (at least) some basic German. Not all of the staff are multilinqual/English speaking.
- a little "rough around the edges".....worn furnishings & decor/less than (the usual German) meticulous cleanliness, outdated fixtures, etc..
- Breakfast, while good, is an optional offering at 8 Euro....a bit steep given that much more reasonable options exist throughout the neighborhood.
- A bit noisy (with traffic & people) at night IF you get a room facing the streetside (i.e. front of building).

Be advised that the Pension Augsburg does offer a couple categories of rooms. The "more-basically-appointed"/less-costly hostel-like rooms are the ones to which all of my comments are referenced.
The best deal would be the rooms without ensuite facilities. You still have a wash basin in room, with shared (normally clean) toilet & shower facilites in the hallway.
Everything taken into consideration, it should be easy to tolerate minor sub-standards of cleanliness, decor and amentities in order to stay at such a well-located & value priced accomodation, in an otherwise very costly city.

Please note: The Pension Augsburg does seem to be in the process of changing their name to "Pension am Hauptbahnhof", along with ongoing restorations of rooms (which might, unfortunately, affect the price of rooms in the near future).

Called also Pension am Hauptbahnhof:
he worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
ROOM RATE:
We booked directly with the hotel, by email without guarantee with credit card. They don't tell me that in my room there are 2 separate single bed intead that 1 big bed, even if I specify that in my reservation.
you cannot put the beds together because they are at two opposite side of the room.
Smells of sigarettes, it's very dirty and the bathroom is horrible.
Bed sheet sets are dirty, with hair of someone above.. horrible, horrible and they don't clean the room and change us towels for 2 days!!!!
I told this at the reception and they don't apology but they only answer me that it was not their duty!
the carpet in the room is grubby.I slept 4nights with my towels above the bed.the bathroom smells of everything.. that's disgusting.
Location is the only good quality: near the underground and the main station.
The beds, furniture and everything are outdated and old which explains the low room rate.(50/78 euros for 1 night, double room).
This hotel is like and hostel, but usually hostels are very clean.
I suggest to everyone to go to another hotel in Munchen.
