“Check In Nightmare”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2006

We arrived at 15.00 in the afternoon which was during ashift changeover by the recepionists which we were told would take 10mins . At 15.30 the 2 girls were still in chageover mode we had arrived after a3 hour train journey from stuttgart so all we wanted to do was check in .Our party consisted of 14 males which required 7 twin rooms which were booked and payed for months in advance .The check in was not complete until 16.55 which is nearly 2 hours after our arrival as instead of twin beds 5 rooms had double beds so they had to correct their mistake .There was no language barrier and no cash changed hands so why would a check in take so long .

My advice is allow additional time for some more of the above.

My family and I had a great stay at this hotel. It was very clean and basic. The main reason why we chose the hotel was because of the price. Now do not expect anything above a 2 star but for the price you get a clean room and a place to sleep. There is no tv in the room but who goes to Munich to watch tv? And you do a private bathroom, when asked for. The free breakfast is very filling and the location is the best part. Only a ten minute walk from the main walkplatz in downtown Munich. I f I go back this will be where I stay. I recommend it to anyone as they do accept older people which most hostel/hotels do not. It's also great for the younger crowd to be able to meet new people.

The hotel is just about 5min walk from the main train station. The room is clean and fairly good size. Although it is located along a busy road, but we had a room at the back of the hotel and it was very quiet. The room rate we had includes breakfast and it is continental buffet. All and all, it is good value for money.

For a younger crowd, the A&O is a modern place to stay that is almost more like a hotel than a hostel. Each room has a great bathroom, comfortable beds, and everything is new and extremely clean. A basic European breakfast is provided, late-night drinks are for sale, and an English-speaking staff is always friendly and available. The best part is probably the location - a short walk to the train station, Hauptbanhof, can get you anywhere in Europe, and the S8 can get you to/from the airport in about 30 minutes. You won't need cabs, either - you can safely and quickly walk to all the famous sites and, more importantly, beer halls. A great place to crash in Munich.
