“Quick Oktoberfest Trip - Great Value/Location”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

My sister and I just returned from Munich where we stayed at the Holiday Inn - City Centre for 3 nights. This was my 3rd time staying at this hotel and everything was as I remembered.

1) The location is perfect. It's easy to find and you don't need to leave the underground. This is a plus if the weather is bad upon arrival. Also, it's close to Marienplatz - about an 8 minute walk.

2) Check-in was quick and easy..... not to mention, they allowed us to check-in early. Our flight from the US arrive din Munich an hour early. We arrived at the hotel around 820am. We were in our room and resting by 840am.

3) Our room was clean - sheets were fresh and towels were stocked. The ONLY negative about the room was that it was a smoking room. The smell was not overbearing, but you could smell the remains of second-hand smoke.

4) We did not have any disturbances from loud Oktoberfest partiers. I was pleasantly surprised that we were not awakened in the middle of the night by people who had been drinking.

5) We did not eat or drink at the hotel so I cannot comment on food quality or prices.

Overall, I give this hotel a 'very good.' What would make it better? Free WiFi throughout the building. Not sure why free WiFi is not standard in hotels in 2012.

We stayed one night using Priority Club Points. The staff member that booked us in wasn't very friendly and at first couldn't find our booking. We had a good size room and bathroom with the shower over the bath. Good beds and good airconditioning and tea & coffee facilities. The room had an old tv and expensive wifi. As breakfast was expensive we brought breakfast from the local shop. The train station is under the hotel and has a supermarket and fast food outlets but they are closed on Sundays. The hotel also has a swimming pool.

Stayed one night. Loved the under pass from the underground station to the hotel. Quite a few shops in the under pass ranging from breakfast place to a grocery store.
Reception was cordial and knowledgeable.
No complimentary wifi in such an advanced city is a miss. But overall a good stay. Recommended if price is right.

Want breakfast? 23€. Want a snack? 5€ for a small can. Want Internet? 18€ a day. Want a movie? 13,50€ a day with porn. What seems like a reasonable room rate could have ruined my Munich stay had it not been for the pleasant cafes nearby, the grocery on the lower level, and the S stop downstairs. Want tourist info? Hope a rack of pamphlets and computer-generated maps will be enough, because that's all they had at the unmanned desk. Taxi is 60€ to the airport. My room for 4 nights was clean, but the housekeeper kept placing my toothbrush in new spots each day. Why touch personal items?

Stayed in July 2012 with my husband and daughters (15 and 11). Booked one queen room and adjoining two twin bed room for the children. At the time of booking, they were offering the second room for the children at 50% off. Very convenient and welcome for our stay of seven nights.

Rooms were clean and comfortably furnished. Beds and pillows were comfortable. My husband and I especially liked the individual duvets/comforters on our bed. However, I did have to request the duvets be changed in our rooms after the first night as I found they may not have been laundered the best prior to our stay. This request was met with an apology and quick action.

Minibar in room had small area for personal items. TVs were dated and internet was wired only in the rooms. Too expensive for me to care to purchase but I understand these issues are being addressed very soon.

Lobby was very busy with families just seeming to sit around and many young unattended children running around and climbing on and over the furniture. The staff seemed a bit exasperated at this some times and tried (unsuccessfully) to have the parents regain order over their children.

We used the free internet terminals in the lobby each day. Seems that the morning was the best time to access - we were able to use each day with no problem and no waiting.

We ate in the bar/restaurant area a few times and were able to access the "Kids eat free" for our youngest daughter. Paninis were excellent and kid's meals were tasty, even for our picky eater. Service at the restaurant/bar was fantastic and very friendly. Did not eat at the breakfast buffet as the cost was higher than we wanted to pay for what we could eat for breakfast - it would have come to about $100 Cdn per day for us. Instead we picked up pastries at one of the food places attached to the hotel, and fruit and juice at the grocery store. Gas station next door was also great for purchasing snacks and water, and for exchanging large bills for us.

Excellent location, easy walking distance to many Munich attractions. Attached to the S-Bahn with a direct link to the airport. Very handy after a long overseas flight. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Room Tip: If travelling with children, inquire about special rates for second adjoining room.

I stayed for three nights on business and found the restaurant very good.The best feature by far was the night porter who after I returned in a taxi which then would not take a card payment said don't worry and payed the bill and put it on my room a life saver!
The hotel could do with a revamp but the rooms are cleaned by a great team she hung all my cloths up as I had not had time it was like having the wife with me.
Great stay with no major issues

It's a Holiday Inn, staff were pleasant and efficient in all aspects... The bed was comfortable, the room and bathroom was clean... The internet is a little pricy... The S-Bahn being underneath the hotel was extremely handy, but it was an easy walk to the Old City and some sights. No safety issues that I could identify and I was out at all hours of the night. EuropCar has an office attached the to Esso next door, and there is underground parking at the hotel, both extremely handy.

Room Tip: High rooms facing Old Town give a good view of the City, especially at night, so I'm told.
