“Fantastic New Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2010

Stayed at the Eurostars Grand Central in Munich last month as it was part of a package through lastminute.com. It's a fantastic hotel with easy access to Hauptbahnhoff, the central station as well as the AIrport which is about 40 minutes away on S1 & S6 lines, the station for which is a few minutes away from the hotel. We arrived at Munich International Airport early Saturday morning and got ourselves a partner day ticket for the entire network. It costs18.80 Euros for 2-5 people and is of good value if you are five. Hopped on to S8, (S1 would do too) as both these trains ply on opposite directions but pass thorugh most cety centre stations. We got off at Hackerbrucke. Once you exit the station through a flight of stairs, turn left towards Arnulstrasse (where you can see frequent trams plying). Once you get to Arnulstrasse turn left and walk about a hundred metres until you reach Eurostar. The hotel has coloured windows and is a very modern building on the outset, but no different from other group hotels in terms of character. The entry to reception is bland, though, the restaurant looks grand. The small lifts overlooking the apartment block, which I suspect is a part of Eurostars is enough to accommodate a small family and luggage.

The rooms itself are either side of each corridors, with one side devoted to darker colours and the other side for plain white. The rooms are extremely clean, has great lighting and the has made use of space perfectly, with sliding doors for wardrobe and bathroon. Once complaint though is the bed and the sliding glass door for the bathroom. For couples it should be a single bed, and not a twin bed joined in the middle. The bed is extremely mobile and you sure to fall in between if you tyr reaching your other half. Again, the bathrooms great if you are couple, but can get a bit embarassing if you are with a friend. Anyway, the staff speak English, and are professional rather than friendly. The free wireless internet access is a bonus, but you have to ask at the reception while checking in (You will be given a short slip with the username/password), or you will never know.

In terms of ease of access, the hotel is about 10 mins walk to Hauptbanhnhoff or two stops away on the trams. Marienplatz should be about 20 mins. Get out of the hotel, turn right and keep walking straight until you come across the station to your right. On yoyur way, watch out for Augustine Keller, a beer garden which has fantastic food, great beer and friendly staff. If you want truly enjoy Bavarian style, enjoy sitting under the sun in the midst of trees at Augustine Keller, or if its a rainy day, I would go a level down via lift to the hidden jewel. It's bit harder to find, but ask the staff or make your way towards the toilets and you should see a lift to your right which brings you to the basement. Try Suckling Pig and potato dumplings, which is aptly called something like spanwerkel, or get a knuckled pork depending on your appetite. It's a fantastic Bavarian experience.

Plenty to write about Munich, but just realised that this is a hotel review. The hotel also has a roof top closed swimming pool and fitness centre, which we didn't use due to lack of time. Breakfats wasn't a part of our deal, but we were offered for 18 Eur which I thought was extremely steep. You can get a filling of great bavarian breads and sausages for less than 3 Eur, so I would look our for those Bavarian bakeries. Breakfast at the American Coffee place, Coffee Fellows is quite good and filling. So I would avoid hotel breakfast if its not a part of the deal.

All in all, a nice hotel recommended for a short getaway with friends or family.

Stayed for a 2 day break with g'friend and another couple. plenty of room with balcony. en suite is big with excellent shower.

location is good, best to use suburban train back to airport. shame i did not check out the local beer garden. taxi is under 10E into town.

Defo would go again! : )

check out a river side bar (quite expensive) called Nektar. Its beach themed and is really cool on a summer/sunny day. its on the island bit of the river near town.

One of Lastminute.com's secret Hotels. Stayed here with a group of lads on a Stag trip. It's about 15 minutes walk to the city centre passing a fab open air beer garden on the way. The rooms are modern and comfy, there is also a pool, sauna and open air sun deck on the top floor. The only downside was the price of booze in the hotel bar.

Georgous hotel with convenient location (near train station) and great staff. Upscale design and fantastic food for a bargain price. The pool was small, but since the hotel was quiet (offseason) when we were there, we had it to ourselves. I will definitely stay here again. The only negative I can think of is that the parking garage was difficult to navigate. The hotel only maintains a portion of it, the signage is poor and we ended up wandering for quite awhile (with our suitcases). A few extra signs would be an easy fix....but again, it would not deter me from staying here again. For those with children, the Krone Circus is within walking distance.

Elegant spacious interior with very helpful staff, and large modern-design rooms (hardly any drawer space though). Excellent breakfast with lots of choice.

Just a couple of hundred yards away from Augustiner Keller one of the top traditional pubs with massive beer garden, great food and great beer. Tram stop just 50 yards away takes you into the middle of the city (tram 17 is best for all the nicest parts of Munich). Also very close to Hackerbrucke train station which is very convenient for airport (just 40 minutes away) and also daytrips like Steinberger Lake.

This was an excellent hotel and an ideal base for our short city break.

This hotel is very modern close to metro station but also in can walk into town in less than 20 minutes.
Very nice breakfast, friendly staff and ultra modern rooms.
The only complaint i would have is that the pool water was a little cold but other than that all great.

Also very close (only a 5 minute walk) to one of the brauhaus not the Hoff Brau Haus but a very nice one.

Stayed here for a weekend break to go to the Bauma trade fair. The hotel is very smart and stylish, staff were helpful and the room was spotless. Swimming pool is small but lovely with a rooftop sundeck next to it.

Couple of gripes though:
We could clearly hear the lift going up and down and doors opening and shutting in our room (301) so avoid the rooms next to the lifts. There was also a mysterious periodic clicking noise, possibly from the air con? Didin't keep our 3 year old awake, but annoyed us a little bit.

No milk, not even powdered, supplied with tea and coffee in the room.

Hotel website says use Donnersbergebrucke S-Bahn station, but Hackerbrucke is much nearer.
