Excellent location as it is next to Isator station on the direct S Bahn trainline from the airport and just a short walk to the Marienplatz. very helpful staff who provided us with tickets for both the bus tour and train tickets without taking commission. Our request for a quiet room was granted although there is little city noise anyway. Our room was 304 which overlooked a courtyard not pretty but quiet. The room was very clean with comfortable beds. In fact the whole hotel appears to have had an update and is tastefully decorated throughout. The only regret was lack of tea/coffee making facility in room. As liquids are restricted on cheap airlines it is essential to have toiletries available and hair conditioner would have been a welcome addition to shampoo and shower gel provided. However, it was very good value for money and made our 3 day stay very enjoyable.

Room Tip: Room 304 is quiet. As there is not an attractive view, it is better to be higher. We asked for quiet...

My daughter & I spent 6 nights and picked this hotel based on location and recommendations on Trip Advisor. Lots of slush all over sidewalks but easy access from airport S-bahn. 5 minute stroll to Marienplatz and easy access to all major sites. Except for visiting friends in suburbs, we walked everywhere. We were upgraded to larger room, most likely due to length of stay and scarcity of other guests. The heated towel rack is always a bonus. do bring your own hair conditioner as few European hotels supply that. We loved the view of the cathedral and other spires. Breakfast is served until 10:30 which is a real help as we tended to stay out late. Eggs could be cooked to order, just ask. Large and tasty layout of variety of foods and prosecco! bowl of apples always on front desk. Staff helped to locate classical concert tickets prior to arrival and that was most helpful. Loved the restaurant and will report separately. Would definitely stay again. The price isn't inexpensive as Munich is one Germany's more expensive cities but one does get their money's worth. Would definitely stay again.

We have stayed at the Torbrau multiple times over the last three years as we travelled in and out of Ankara, Turkey on the only real direct European flight. I cannot express how much I love this place - so close to the city centre but not noisy, friendly, helpful staff and the breakfast buffet is to die for (I always say a stay at the Torbrau puts on several kilos). It's right next to a subway station (Isartor) which is on the airport express route but we also had no problem finding it by car. We are now back in Australia with no hope of a European stay in the near future so will have to rely on my fond memories.

This is a lovely hotel! The location is so handy being right next to the subway, the staff were great and very helpful. I had a lovely room over looking marienplatz and it was spacious and clean.

I was only on a short trip visiting friends but it fitted my needs perfectly. It is very reasonably priced for what you get.

I forgot to ask where they buy their sheets as they were so comfortable the bed was lovely and there was no noise for such a central hotel. I would highly reccommend it! I must come back again!

Room Tip: One at the back on a higher floor would have lovely views

As much as I travel and use Tripadvisor, I decided it is time for me to add some reviews. I stayed in this wonderful hotel for 5 nights over New Years with my 10 year old daughter and loved it. It is an easy direct subway ride to this location, no transfers required from airport. Ask the airport help desk for a subway map, it was very useful.
Walk up the stairs near the subway bakery, look to your left across a narrow lane, and you will see the stars on the hotel sign. You will not need a cab to the hotel if you are able to carry your bags up the 2 short flights of subway stairs. It is only a few minutes walk to Marienplatz, and also walking distance to the wonderful science and industry museum. The hotel has been kept updated, and everything was in great shape, and clean. Breakfast was included and eggs were done to order. It was excellent. Wifi was also included, and was okay, not great. Not every hotel in Munich provides breakfast and wifi, and they can be expensive, so these amenities added great value. English was well spoken by courteous staff, some friendlier than others, but all willing to help. When I checked out, they even offered to have a staff member carry my bags to the subway, and also took my bags to my room. There is a small elevator and only carry on size bags fit, but it was not a problem. The only reason I did not give the property 5 stars was that my room, for the intermediate price level, seemed small, with many angles from the 5th floor roof providing places to bump my head. Also the restaurant attached is under new management, and did not offer any items for children. On the plus side, the top floor view toward Marienplatz was fabulous, incredible for New Year's Eve fireworks. There is a nice little restaurant , Opajita, just around the first corner as you head toward Marienplatz. Good food, reasonable prices, English menu available. I loved the hotel, would stay again, but would try for their larger rooms facing Marienplatz next time.

Room Tip: The best rooms are the the largest rooms on the 5th floor facing Marienplatz. Nice views. If you are...

Excellent location, situated beside the Isator S Bahn station and 5 mins walk from the Marienplatz and a host of shops, bars and restaurants, oh and just 3 mins walk from the famous Hoffbrau House, can't forget this! The Hotel staff were very friendly, spoke excellent English and were keen to help with travel plans. I believe the Hotel has been undergoing refurbishment so is very nicely decorated with all new bathrooms. The only negative I would say about the bathroom is that the bath is very slippy and could use a rubber mat for safety. The continental breakfast had a varied selection of fruits, cold meats, cheeses, breads and croissants all very fresh and excellent quality. My husband and I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel in the future. One last thing, the rooms were very quiet, you couldn't hear the traffic of other visitors outside your room.....

Stayed at the Hotel Torbrau over New Years, and had a fabulous time. The hotel could not be more convenient for exploring Munich. It is a 5 minute walk to Marienplatz and a subway station is steps from the front door. There are all kinds of excellent restaurants close by, and the hotel's Schapeau was very good. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a great breakfast buffet in the morning, that is beautifully prepared and presented. You can also order omelettes and eggs. We stayed at the hotel for New Years' Eve, and had their buffet dinner which was served in the breakfast room. They had a swing band, and the food was wonderful. At midnight, Munich went crazy. I have never seen freelance fireworks like that. Quite dangerous, but also fun. If I get back to Munich, I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room was newly remodeled. Not sure if every room has been redone.
