“Not up to Sheraton Par During my Visit”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

I stayed here right after Christmas for several nights, and it was an experience. The light switches are unlike any hotel you will ever encounter, so be prepared for frustration. Bring 120v adapters.

The drapes have no pull cords, so be prepared to leap the desk, and straddle the desk lamp, to close them in the middle.

The King Beds advertised and charged for are "Not King Beds!" They push two rolling twins together, and charge you for a King Bed! Watch out for the slit trench in the middle of the night!

The #4 U-bahn Arabellaplatz stop "DOES NOT HAVE ELEVATORS" and it "STOPS RUNNING AT 20:00-HOURS! It is not close to the tourist areas, so it is quieter, but you waste time traveling.

The pool is an ice plunge experience. It does not need to be, as it is not a lap pool. Nice with a 1mil wetsuit, I just forgot to bring mine.

The TV has no english channels, except the news.

If you have a maintenance problem on the weekend, forget getting it fixed. Our tub did not work properly, and the shower bottom leaked like the Titanic, flooding the bathroom. The ice machine did not work, and they had five days to fix it.

You could not touch the small refrigerator mini-bar, without it immediately charging you for what you moved. It was cool, not cold, so you need ice anyway.

Cleaning staff, they forgot way too much stuff, like toilet paper!

It looks nice, the room size is big compared to Vienna & Paris, and its in a nice area. The price is lower, but you give it back paying high prices for Wi-Fi in your room.

It has a great, good priced, two floor, big super market at the metro stop, which is about two football fields distance away. It has a hot food cooked section, and downstairs tons of beers and wine. A great place to shop!

It has church bells to keep you awake, so take Bose QC20 ear buds to cancel the noise, sleeping pills, or a case of beer.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing away from the church bells!

I stayed two nights at this hotel between the period of Christmas and the New Year. Checking in was fast and the young lady with blonde hair was very polite and answered most of my questions i.e. parking etc.

I upgraded to a room on the Executive floor on the 23rd floor. The room was clean, well-appointed with very comfortable bed. There was no bathtub but the shower was clean and water pressure is good. The view from the hotel is great too. The food and service at the Executive Lounge on the 22nd floor is good with a choice of finger food and selection of alcohol. However, I am bit surprise it is quite a small lounge for a big hotel. We opted to have breakfast on the main restaurant downstairs as it had more choices and I particularly like the Asian section.

The location is slightly outside the city centre but this is Germany and the trains are super-efficient. The closest underground station is about 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel – Arabella Park. Do use the entrance door on the back of the hotel. It only takes about 6 – 7 stops on the U- Bahn (U4 line) from Arabella Park station to the city centre i.e. Odeonplatz station. The area around the hotel appears to be quiet with a few bars & restaurants along the way to the underground station. Overall it was a pleasant stay and we would be back again if we are visiting Munich.

Room Tip: It is worth upgrading to the Executive rooms.

This is a nice hotel with good amenities and nicely appointed rooms. However, one of the concierge staff was not at all helpful and dismissive in his attitude towards us. What a great letdown for such as classy hotel.

During my moving to Munich I had to stay a couple of nights at the Sheraton before being able to enter my new place.
I was surprised with the excellent value for money offer I got for a room, which I would expect from an Ibis or Holiday Inn but not the Sheraton.
The room was top quality as well as all the facilities. You would easily par EUR 300 for such a room in any city in Europe, but I pay nearly a third of that.
Amazing view over entire Munich from the hotel, easy and not too expensive parking and very efficient and friendly staff. I will definitely recommend this hotel to people visiting Munich.

The rooms are spacious, great facilities. Free wifi in the lobby. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Not centrally located at all, however there are three or so restaurants and grocery store and pharmacy close by (100m) should you do not feel up to a trip to the centre of town.

We (a family of 3) spent 3 nights in Sheraton in pre-Xmas season and we had a great time. We had booked our stay there online, and there had been in discrepancy between the online reservation and what the hotel had reserved for us. We had requested, booked and paid for a triple and the hotel provided us with a double room. The concierge took care of that issue and they accomodated us to a triple room appropriately.
By any chance, dont miss the hyper-breakfast. :)

Yes, it is a "box" hotel but it was a great place to stay while we were in Munich for the Christmas Markets just a few days ago. It is a bit of a ways from the city center, but that problem is solved with the U Bahn just a short distance out the back door of the hotel. It is a no brainer as we were on the last stop of the line and it is a straight shot to a stop near the Marienplatz.

We had our breakfast included and what a breakfast it is:-) So many selections for a breakfast buffet, all wonderful. We did not eat at the hotel for lunch or dinner, the prices looked to be a bit on the higher end.

There was a small Christmas Market out the back door, a number of restaurants, and a supermarket near by. We shopped the supermarket several times and ate at the Christmas market...best hamburgers ever and only 4,50 Euros for a huge cheeseburger.

The hotel is clean, HUGE, and very quiet. The bathroom was large and very nice. The only "complaint" was the lighting as with most hotels anymore, it was a bit dim in the room. Other than that, it was a very pleasant 3 night stay and you are away from the huge crowds that flock to the Christmas Markets each year.

I have no problem recommending this hotel. We did not use the spa though saw others with their spa bathrobes on. The weather was warm and sunny so we wanted to be outside and to visit as many Christmas markets as possible. We visited nearly all of them:-)

Room Tip: We were on the 10th floor and the room was amazingly quiet as were the corridors. I think that any f...
