Great place to stay at the center of the city. Shopping centers and great restaurants close by. Staff are ever smiling and eager to offer help and advice to guests not familiar with Munich. Deferentially enabled staff are employed within the hotel and this indeed goes to show the maturity of the management and the respect towards human values. The... More

I stayed at the Excelsior for a week in November, for business reasons. The hotel foyer is very quaint, decorated in Bavarian style. The room I stayed in was one of the Alpine rooms - I'm not sure how many room styles there are - and was spacious and comfortable and clean. The best description I can give is to... More

Located in the center of Munich by the central railway station. Very basic room that feels a bit old. There are actually old fashioned single rooms with a narrow single person beds (90cm) in this hotel. Noise from outside street can be bothersome on the lower floors.

Hotel is modern and clean. Booked an Alpine room which is large and spacious. Big bathroom with a great shower. Even a separate toilet. Central location to main train station and even to city centre. Quiet in the rooms even with trams and buses close by (we were on the second floor). Can not fault the place
