Reviewed 27 June 2012

Hotel is on Schwanthaler Strasse corner Schiller Stasse a 10 minute walk from the Train Station.
It is on a busy Street.
Has a small "Lobby", The rooms are small and consist of a doble bed and to 2 nightstands a desk with a flat screen TV and has a nice large Bathroom. If you only need to sleep in the room and do not need a large space to relax in a easy chair it is a good place to stay. I had a room at the street side and despite dobble pane windows you still could hear the noise from the cars and people talking below at 3 AM. Also the room was very warm due to the mid day sun but they have a fan.

The best in this hotel is the Breakfast. I would say it is the best Breakfast in Munich or even in Germany when Breakfast is included in the price of the room and I have been to more than 15 Hotels in Munich over as many years and to some more than once. Only the Hotel Cristall on same street had a better one, with Wine, Champagne, fresh made Orange Juice and other things which you never found and find anywhere unless you pay 25 Euro and up for Breakfast. That was some time ago but now they charge extra for it and I have not been back since. Also their rooms went up which to around 130 - 150,- Euros.

Another thing to know, If they have a " Special Discount " with no cancelation they charge your Credit Card at the time you make the reservation even if you arrive 3 or 4 months later.

I would give this Hotel a Rating of good but there is no GOOD RATING on this site, this is unusual that they have Average and then Very Good , Tripadvisor shure screwed up here !!!

Room Tip: In the back of the Hotel.

Although it is located in a sketchy part of town, the hotel is very nice and quiet inside. The staff was very helpful and everyone spoke excellent English. The breakfast buffet was included in our stay and consisted of a great variety of fresh breads, cold cuts, yogurt, cereal, juices, etc. Definitely recommend!

Hotel Praesident is located very near the main train station and just across the street from the Deutsches Theater. The rooms were clean and modern, a bit small, but it is in the heart of the city.

The ample breakfast buffet was a nice way to start the day, and the staff was friendly and ready to answer questions.

The one big drawback is that it is on Schwanthalerstrasse, which is very noisy, up until 2 or 3 AM. If you don't mind a bit of noise, I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to be close to the train station and a short walk to the Marienplatz and all of the offerings of the Munich city center.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not overlook the main street to get away from the noise.

This was a good Hotel for the money but if you want a nights sleep ask for a room at the back of the Hotel as you are situated on a very busy street. The rooms are very hot no air conditioning, I was there in May had 3 nice warmish days and the room was stifling so if you go in the height of the summer BEWARE. The staff are very helpful especially the lady at reception and our maid for the room was very good, all in all a good experience Munich is lovely.

Room Tip: Go to the back.

This clean, comfortable, tasty breakfast, well equiped hotel exceed my exectations for a hotel close to a central city train station in a slightly doggy area.

The only item that did not work perfectly was the room safe.

The extras were remarkable for a budget hotel. Free wifi, a small bottle of Sekt, good shower gels etc.

Breakfast (inlcuded) gets a special mention for extras such as expressos made to order.

We needed a hotel near to the station for a late arriving overnight stop before heading to the mountains. The Praesident fit the bill perfectly. It was a 5 minute walk from the station and even arriving at nearly midnight, the reception staff were friendly and helpful.

The room itself was comfortable, spacious and well equipped albeit that it was a little anonymous in the style of most "business" hotels. Breakfast was excellent and the beer in the minibar was reasonably priced (not that we had it for breakfast!)

Overall it was good quality and good value for central Munich.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel attract a little street noise but it is not excessive.
