“Sleep deprived.”
Reviewed 10 December 2007

This is an overpriced hotel. Read the wonderful reviews and decided to stay at this hotel. I was so disappointed. The room is clean, no question about that but there are no phones, and no alarm clock in the room. I even went out and bought one myself. There's a 12-inch tv in the room. In short, there the bed, a small table, a tv, a closet and the bathroom. Literally nothing else. They advertised Wifi access, when I inquired with the front desk, they said no, they don't. Location is excellent but it tends to draw not very desirable customers who would come back drunk at 3 or 4am and shout and bang on the walls and doors of the rooms. The walls are paper thin so you can hear the opening and closing of doors 3 floors away. My room was at the 3rd floor. I stayed for 4 nights and did not get any sleep for 3. Only slept at the last night, I was way too tired already after being so sleep-deprived. The breakfast is so-so in my taste. Just 4 types of cold cuts, 2 types of bread, coffee, apple juice, hard-boiled eggs and tasteless fruit cocktail (right out of the can).

  • Liked — cleanliness and excellent location - 2 blocks from central train station
  • Disliked — no phone, no Wifi, no alarm clock, less desirable guests

Round 15.00 I checked in, which took about 3 minutes. The staff spoke English fluently, so there was no language barrier. I booked a room for one which was located on the 6th floor (the highest one). The room was big enough for one person, and even a small bed could be placed along the other bed. There was a desk, a BIG closet (+ a smaller one), Tv. The bathroom (unlike other hotels) was big enough for one with a bath, hairdryer, towels, toilet and washbasin (+ shower gel).
In the morning there was a full continental breakfast.

If I have to be in Munich again, I’ll probably sleep here!

(2 thing's that need a little attention: 1/ the curtains are not that thick, so the light comes in. 2/ There were no English channels on the TV)

BUT THE REST WAS GREAT!

Reviewed 10 October 2007

We stayed at this place for Oktoberfest. It was a great find, at an extremely reasonable rate...40 euro/night per person. We booked a room that sleeps four and has a private bath. It was basic, yet relatively spacious and very clean. The location is awesome. It is within 5 or 10 minutes walking distance from all the tents; 10 minutes walk from the central station, and 15 minutes walk to Marionplatz.

The breakfast, included in the rate, was quite decent, with breads, yogurts, cereal, milk, juices, boiled eggs, coffee, tea, butter and jams. During Oktoberfest, if you want to stay within walking distance of the festivities...you WILL hear noise at night. What do you expect with THOUSANDS of drunk people walking the streets at midnight? We slept just fine. If I ever went back to Oktoberfest again, I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to most of my friends. I would not recommend this place to people who are somewhat fussy or who expect Marriott standards for hostel prices. It's got what you need, and it's very clean. The front desk person was very polite.

The hotel is close to the main train station, has a GREAT breakfast, and is very clean and comfortable. The drawback is that it's dorm-like (we didn't mind at all). Other guests were a mix of business people, families, young backpackers and middle-aged tourists. The front desk spoke great English. The place is excellent for the price.

Reviewed 15 September 2007

The place is i a very good location, just next to the main train station. Hence, there are many cheap places to eat.

The price of the rooms is higher then the service provided. But this is ok for Munich.

There is a good wireless connection for 1 eur/hour only. Unfortunately, wireless works next to the reception and cafeteria only.

The place is clean and quite. The furniture is new and of a good quality. The personnel is friendly and helpful, speaks English

I would stay there again.

The hotel is located on a busy street. There's a new(?) four floor wing in the hotel that has at least double rooms. Try to get a room from that wing. The rooms there are very quiet since the rooms don't face the street but a inner yard. Seems that the rooms in the wing have been renovated lately. At least some rooms have a spacious balcony. The room was very clean and spacious enough. The bathroom was excellent.

The Internet access was not free.

The staff seems the know several languages, e.g. French.

The breakfast in the hostel/hotel is well worth it's 5€ price. There are some newspapers available in the breakfast room.

The lift broke down during our stay and didn't get fixed, because it was weekend.

The hotel is a very good deal.

Got a great rate. Good location (near train station and about a 15 minute walk to Marienplatz). Clean rooms. Efficient staff. Comfy beds. Good breakfast spread.

Only drawback is the hotel doesn't have A/C (norm for hotels of this price in Europe) and it's on a busy street. So, if you get a room on the street bring earplugs cause it gets really, really loud. Certainly ask for rooms that don't face the street.

We'd stay there again, but we'd ask for a room off the courtyard.

  • Liked — Cleanliness.
  • Disliked — Street noise.
