You place great importance on quality and want to be right in the middle of Munich's city life? Then Platzl Hotel Munich and its culinary offerings are the address for you. This traditional four-star Superior Hotel and its two popular restaurants - the Pfistermuhle and Wirtshaus Ayingers - are located in the heart of Munich's old city, right beside the famous Hofbrauhaus. And just a short walk from the Marienplatz, the Bavarian State Opera, Maximilianstrasse and Viktualienmarkt. The Inselkammer family and its team combine Bavarian hospitality and traditional style elements with a modern lifestyle and state-of-the-art technology. It begins with a warm welcome in the foyer, continues through the 167 guest rooms and only ends when you leave Munich through the city's historic quarter. This combination of tradition and modernity also creates the ideal setting for private celebrations such as birthdays or weddings, but also conferences and seminars. Your visit should also include a taste of the culinary offerings at our two restaurants - because gastronomy has a long tradition at the Platzl. As early as the beginning of the last century, the Platzl stage was graced not just by cabaret giants such as Karl Valentin. Good Bavarian food also made repeat appearances, being served to guests before and after the performances. Today, the Pfistermuhle is synonymous with sophisticated Bavarian cuisine - at Munich's only preserved city mill. Since the year 2000, people from Munich and elsewhere have enjoyed the hearty regional dishes at Wirtshaus Ayingers, which is next door, while the charming stores and eateries in the "Platzlgassen" add to the lively atmosphere in the Platzl. Our outside bar the Platzl Karree presents a unique bar concept in Munich's old town. Because of the stylish and yet down-to-earth design the fine balancing act between tradition and modernity with the Platzl Karree is perfectly realized. The dominating colors anthracite with burgundy and the dark parquet flooring create a bar to relax and enjoy. In the new Josefa Bar & Kaffee we serve locally produced unique spirits, cool beverages with herbs freshly from the Viktualien market and own cocktail creations.

The hotel had a fantastic location, was very nicely appointed and the staff was quite friendly. There is a small fitness center with new, nice equipment which works well. The website highlights the spa which was not operational while I was there, but I would liked to use it.

Dear Creactmed, Thank you very much for the time you took to write your feedback. To read that you could enjoy your stay in our hotel, makes me very happy. Your feedback makes us very happy and it is a great pleasure for us. Our spa is open from Monday to Friday from 4 PM to 10 PM and on weekends on holidays from 10 AM to 10 PM. We choose this opening time because we want to avoid idle times. I am very sorry that this was not in your opinion. Best regards from Munich Heiko Buchta-General Manager

The women service members wear stereotypical Bavarian garb, insultingly-accentuating their breasts and body, whereas the men are fully clothed; seems quite inappropriate, and a crass violation of women’s rights and empowerment. The room had an in-wall leak loud enough to wake us

Dear Aniceto Andres S, thank you for taking time to write your comment. We would like to take a stand regarding your feedback. At the beginning of the employment relationship, all the staff members can decide by their own if they want to wear the dirndl during the work or not. Most of them decide to wear it, because we are a traditional and Bavarian hotel and we a proud to demonstrate our culture. However, it bothers us deeply that you were awoken by the noise of renovation. This does not represent the high-quality standards we put on ourselves. Our goal is to give our guests new energy and let them feel recovered after a stay with us. I must send you my honest apologize for this issue. We would appreciate it, if you would let future guests the free choice whether they want to stay in our hotel or not. It would be a pleasure if we can welcome you again to show you a better service. Best regards Heiko Buchta-General Manager

The hotel does not offer a shuttle. Just take the SBahn 1 train to Marienplatz stop. The hotel is a very short walk from there. It’s much cheaper than a taxi.

We found the beds to be very large and I reckon you would be fine sharing it with a young child.

We used a tour company called tours by locals that you can google. Our tour guide was Jay who actually started out doing Oktoberfest tours but took us on a tour of Neuschwanstein and the surrounding area. We would recommend him as he was a very good tour guide. He can tailor a tour for you.

"The whole hotel is very quiet"
"Ask for a room facing the courtyard."
"Room faced the street so lots of noise from drinks and the post office early morning."
"Go for the bigger rooms, but the beds are wonderful anyway"
