Reviewed 11 March 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights recently while on a solo visit to Munich. Ivanka was quick to respond to my booking request and only required a faxed confirmation form with passport details. No credit card details or deposit were required. She then emailed me some helpful directions on how to get there and what to do on arrival. The apartment sits on the 5th floor of a residential apartment building. Off the entry hall is a spacious bathroom and entrance to the apartment, with Charlottes apartment opposite. The room is spacious with a comfortable queen sized mattress, dining table and built in wardrobe space. There is also an extra sleeping area atop a ladder and sitting on a loft area. I found the room well heated and quiet with nice little touches like tea selection and chocolates. The bathroom was clean and modern with good shower and bath. I cant comment on the breakfast as Charlotte was away when I stayed. However, I did find some wonderful places for breakfast and dinner very close by. It is also very convenient for the city centre with tram and train options nearly on the doorstep. Travel to Marianplatz took only 10 mins. Highly recommended!

Situated in Garching, 20 minutes by subway north of downtown München, it is easily accessible by car. Got a room with breakfast for €66,50 (which included wifi in the room) which where added with €5 parkingfee. Good place for an overnight stay, but not more. Quick and helpful reception service who helped me to understand the U-bahn-system in München. Do not forget to punch your ticket before entering a U-train! Simple but clean and nice room. Every necessity is there but not anything more. There is a bar in the lobby and a similar bar with more snacks in the IBIS hotel just beside Motel One. Haven't bothered to look for any food in Garching since I found good food in central München.

Motel One is a budget hotel that caters to lone business travellers who needs just a space to sleep or work. The rooms are a bit smaller in size, but comfortable and clean. The bath rooms are also clean... The rooms dont have ward robe or drawers. There are open shelves and hangers. This room may not be suitable for people traveling with family. The front desk staff is very helpful and speak very good English. The property is just on the Garching Hochbruck railway station - so the city center is just a 20min commute. Breakfast is modest but not hot. Value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Hochbruck station are good.

Nice modern hotel right on the U-bahn, a very easy ride into the heart of Munich without the bother of using our car. As others have noted it is not near any restaurants and we didn't want to bother heading back into Munich after an entire day of sightseeing so on the recommendation of the hotel staff we jumped on the U-bahn one stop further along to Garching. It stops right in the plaza and we found a good assortment of restaurants in a village atmosphere. We enjoyed our dinner so much we went back twice to the same small restaurant. One minor point if you are using a GPS to find the hotel put in Garching as the city not Munich. Our GPS initially led us to a small crowded street within Munich, defintely not where we wanted to be.

We stayed at the Motel One - Munich-Garching for one night (two single rooms). It's located in an industrial area with little to offer the traveler in the way of services (there was a biergarten down the block but we didn't try it). However, there is an U-bahn station immediately next to the hotel that will take you directly to the city center.

The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful.

We got rooms (two singles) for an OK €109/night. Breakfast was €7.50, and there was a special offer that threw in the wi-fi for free. The breakfast was good although a little limited in selection. Parking in the underground garage was a cheap €5.

The hotel was very stylish and appeared clean and well maintained. Rooms were quite small. The bed seemed particularly hard but I slept well on it. The wi-fi signal was very good (fast enough to stream video) and the flat-screen TV had lots of TV channels, several in English.

However, there were many flaws in the how the room was designed which seriously impacted its functionality. The biggest problem was the lack of adequate workspace. If you need to work in the room, look elsewhere. The room had one tiny table without a lamp or nearby electric outlets, and only a small backless stool to sit on (the only outlets in the room were located on either side of the bed at floor level, plus one in the bathroom. Fortunately I travel with an extension cord!). Lighting in the room is poor, with no light near the desk. There is a large round ottoman with a small backrest that presumably is for seating, but it's uncomfortable to sit on. There are no nightstands by the bed. The bathroom is very small, and I wasn't able to shower without drenching the bathroom floor. For storage there were a few small shelves and a very narrow space to hang clothes. It's hard to imagine how they could come up with such a poorly-executed room design.

On our trip, we stayed in another Motel One in Salzburg, Austria, with nearly identical rooms (actually a bit larger since they were connecting), and all my comments about the room applied there too.

I've stayed at Ibis hotels several times, which seem to be in the same market niche as Motel One. In fact, there was an Ibis hotel right next door (as well as an Ibis Budget hotel). All else being equal, I would choose Ibis over Motel One. Ibis is less stylish, but the rooms are vastly more functional, having few of the flaws I've discussed above. However, in this case, Ibis' room rates were much higher.

The Motel One in Garching is located in an industrial area. So the neighborhood is less impressive.
The Hotel itself is very clean, well equipped and the service staff is friendly and helpful (I assume that the hotel is quiet new). In the first floor you can find a big lounge area with seats inside and outside.
Although th room is quiet small you will find everything you need and in a good quality.

If you want to travel to City Center there is a trainstation right beside the hotel with trains going at least every 20 minutes.

You've seen one Motel One Hotel, you've seen them all.
And that is a good thing, because you get exactly the same quality for a low price in all locations that I have been to so far. The chain hotels are all nicely designed, in a friendly turquoise color scheme, you have the same not-too-big-but-still-ok rooms, clean bathrooms, identical small but sufficient bar menu and rather extensive breakfast buffet.
On the plus side: very clean, very friendly staff, brandnew features including flatscreen tv.
On the minus side: no real closet in the room (but who cares), free ipads available in the bar did not work (too good to be true), wireless is a bit tricky (ok, that one is a bit annoying).

Overall I would rather stay here than risk more money and NOT know what I get. My choice whenever I have to stay in Germany.
Very good value for money, so book early!
