“a good balance between convenience and location”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

You can reach the central (pedestrian) area of Munich from this hotel in about 15 minutes on foot. The hotel is comfortable and the buffet breakfast was rich. The room (#211) was quite small and had a view on the back of the building, but for the rest it was very clean and was serviced daily. The price is not bad, considering that Munich is quite expensive in general.

Room Tip: #211 has a view on the back of the building, the bathroom window leads to the fire escape stairs.

This hotel is in a very good location of Munich. It is located in Munich's university area within proximity of a number of restaurants, bars and cafes. It is also in within walking distance to Marienplatz, the museum's area, Leopoldstrasse and Englischer Garten.

our room was a bit outdated but clean and spacious. The staff is friendly and helpful. You get free wifi and the breakfast buffet offers a good choice.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in September 2012 and really enjoyed our stay. It was centrally located, about a 10 min walk to the Marienplatz and Banhofbahn. The breakfast was probably the best we had anywhere in Europe during our 3 week stay with the most selection. The room was quite average in size and clean. The ladies behind the counter were friendly, but didn't always have the best knowledge for how to get to places such as Neuschwanstein and Dachau and we ended up just figuring it out on our own. They do have a computer in the lobby you can use to access the internet which was very helpful!

This small hotel is well situated and has a great breakfast buffet. Very helpful staff with good English. BUT: the single rooms on the upper floors are slightly upgraded dorm rooms. As sparse as they can be: bed, chair, desk, tiny bathroom with a shower stall, low ceiling, rather claustrophobic. The 1st floor (2nd for European readers) double rooms are larger with higher ceilings. The bathroom is still tiny and barely accomodates one person at a time. Toiletries are basic: shampoo and soap come out of one dispenser, bring your own conditioner and lotion. No air conditioning: one has to open the window with accompanying street and construction noises. No wi-fi in most floors, one has to go down to the lobby to check e-mail.

The Carlton Astoria is a small, but very well situated Hotel in Munich. It's walking distance to Marienplatz, Die Englisher Garten, Schwabing and so on. It's between the Odeon Platz and University U-Bahn Stations.

The Hotel is small and outdated, but offers ok 3-star accomodation. However, in Summer the rooms are very warm, so be prepared for a rather sweaty sleep. When you've gotten through the night though, there is an excellent breakfast waiting for you. A lovely start to the day with good food, coffee and smiling waitresses. Top notch in my book.

The rest of the staff consists of opposites. There is one that always smilies and offers kind words. Another has good and bad days, while the third is not at all happy with her job. Ignore her and you'll be happy with your experience.

The hotel needs a renovation. For example, my shower kept malfunctioning the last time I was there and I had to hold the shower myself while showering. Not a big deal, but a little irritating.

All in all, the hotel is ok, but nothing for the picky. If central location and affordable price are important factors for you, this is a good choice.

We stayed here for a week in April 2011. The hotel is very clean, and the staff are helpful (they all speak very good English). The room was larger than we expected and very comfortable. It was a GREAT location for getting to the downtown area, although a little inconvenient for the subway.
