“Great hotel in good location...”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

This is a very nice hotel located just outside Munich. The town of Garching is very nice, a small quiet place with great access to the "U" service, underground train running directly into the centre of Munich.

The rooms are nicely equipped, clean and comfortable.

I stayed there with a friend as a base to visit the Allianz Arena, the football stadium. The "U" service is 2 stops, 10 minutes, and no crowds as the vast majority of people will be travelling from the city centre.

it is off of the main tourist route, it's very much a rural area, but a great place to stay if you want to stay out of town but have good and immediate access by subway...

If you need to visit the Technical University this is your place. Price/quality ratio at its top. Comfortable room, clean, new bathroom, free wi-fi. The U-Bahn station is just few steps from the entrance if you want to reach Munich. If you are not a great eater, breakfast is a bit too expensive (12 €), but just around the corner you can find an amazing bakery (that serves coffee too) or a supermarket. Close to the hotel there is also an interesting Bavarian restaurant, good food at low price. If you travel by car you have to reserve the parking, or if you are very lucky and plan to leave before 9 am, you could park on the street for free. Overall, recommended!

Of course Garching is not a prime tourist location, but it's the seat of a number of world-class research institutions. Hence the hotel will cater to visitors of the above institutions. For this purpose, it does its job perfectly. Located at the exit of the subway that will bring you either to Munich or to the research institutions in one convenient stop, the hotel offers spacious clean rooms for a competitive price. Again, hardly the hotel for a romantic escapade, but, if you need to be in Garching, it's very good.

If you need to be at the Max Planck Institute or the Technical University, Munchen then this is a great place to stay. Fairly quiet and great breakfast. Dinner is good too. The staff is very nice.

I was in Garching for work and preferred staying there rather than travelling down to Munich and didn't regret it.
The u-bahn station is so close it seems part of the hotel (unfortunate that it is not easy to go airport-Garching by public transport).
The hotel is in a pleasant pedestrian square with a nice sparkling fountain that fortunately you can't hear from the room because they are insulated and nearby there are many restaurants.
I was given a room in the residence, not the main building: the entrance is discrete and need to swipe key both at the entrance and at the beginning of each corridor to get access, so you feel safe.
Room was large, comfortable and clean.
Breakfast is amazing, huge choice and the best bread I've ever tasted in my life.
Staff is very helpful and friendly.
Very good value for money.

Nice and clean place. Beds are quite ok and the rooms are quite spacious.
Good breakfast buffet.
It's right on top of the subway between central Munich and the technical university (TUM), but you can't notice the subway at all when you're in the hotel.
Perfect place to stay if you ever visit TUM, 20 minutes walk, or 2 minutes with the subway.

Coming form Australia, this hotel is easy to get to and very handy when visiting the TUM (ony one U-bahn stop away). The station is only meters from the hotel!
I love the bar in the lobby, the retaurant with turkish food is great value and the breakfasts (included in the price) are great value - smoled salmon with scrambled eggs and fresh juice, or really indulge in the meat/cheese/breads/cakes!!
