“Good Value Hotel”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Hotel is a short walk from the Marienplatz and main station. We had a nice room at the back of the hotel which was clean, warm and comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a very nice selection of meats, cheeses, smoked salmon with a hot selection of sausages as well as a variety of breads and pastries.
The street was not what you would call pretty there was Mac Donalds, Lidl and Aldi near by and some clubs including a lap dancing one but did not hear any noise or feel frightened. If I went back to Munich would use this hotel again as it was good value for money and central located

Room Tip: Maybe ask for room at back of hotel

We stayed at the Hotel Praesident in July. The hotel itself is nice - we had a room in the back. The rooms are tiny with no air conditioning. Breakfast was a very nice buffet spread. The big downside to this hotel is the neighborhood. It is in the red light district with lots of sketchy dudes hanging out in doorways. There are strip clubs, sex shops and hookah lounges up and down the street. Pay a bit more and stay further from the train station.

This is a little gem of a hotel very close to the Marienplatz and the Central Train Station. You can easily walk to either place. Easy access to the underground shops and trains, too. The hotel rooms are very tiny, and I do not recommend three people in a room. You literally trip over each other. But they are very, very clean and safe. Rooms on the front of the hotel are noisy, those on the rear are quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful - meats, eggs, fresh fruit, cheeses, sweets, coffee, juice, tea and breads.

The downside is that there is no air-conditioning, and it is almost impossible to cool the room off at night after the temperatures soar up to 85 degrees during the day. No window screens, no cross ventilation. The staff did provide a small fan - when asked - but even then we did not sleep well.

So save this little hotel for cool weather, don't take a triple room, and don't look for luxury. Be sure you ask for a room away from the busy street in front. I'd stay there again under these circumstances, but never again in the summer!

Stayed for two nights in June 2013.

+Decent location near the train station.

-Our room, and probably others, was infested with BED BUGS. We actually physically saw them. Unfortunately that was when we were already packing up to leave and my partner had been bitten numerous times.

+ Breakfast buffet was good.

- Front desk staff rude.

- No free wifi. There is one shared kiosk between the entire hotel in the lobby.

Avoid this hotel at all costs.

I like the service in this hotel. The room and bathroom were very clear. New furniture. Nice stuff. Very good breakfast.

But, this hotel is located on a very noisy street with a lot of cars and trucks up to midnight. Also there were a lot of casino, sex-shops, strip-clubs and bars around the hotel. Many beggars and suspicious persons around the hotel. Pedestrians shouting loudly under the windows of our room until 3:00am! Even closed window didn't help. It was a bad night. Also the outer surface of the window was dirty.

Price was 114 EUR that is too much for a hotel in such bad location!

I stayed in another hotel in Munich in May 2013 in 1 km from Marienplatz for 80 EUR which was located in a quiet and pleasant location. So I don't understant how hotel Praesident can costs so much.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel

We stayed in this hotel at the end of May and found it very convenient place for weekend city break. We were impressed by very polite and attentive staff starting from reception team to chambermaid and ladies serving breakfast. The breakfast buffet was very reach and far exceeded our expectations. Hotel is perfectly located – five minutes on foot to the old town and railway station, all nightlife options just next door. Rooms were normally sized, clean and well maintained. To be honest it was a little bit noisy at night but taking into account that hotel is located in the center of the city (not in the country side) it is unavoidable part of attraction you came for.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room 64 with street view and had a good rest.It was surprisingly cold outside(only pl...

Sure, the neighborhood is seedy but if you don't want to cough up the money for a different hotel, just deal with it.
Rooms are basic but enough. Windows open.
Breakfast was very impressive with large spread.
Staff friendly and a bit sarcastic.
Easy walk into central Munich.
