“Be aware: Paper-thin walls”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

I stayed in the Hotel Carmen for a few nights being on a business trip. I initially chose that based on TripAdvisor reviews: proper infrastructure, parking area, descent breakfast. But: already on the first night there it was impossible sleep, as you can hear all neighbours, who either stay in their rooms or walking on corridors. Every single whisper, every toilet visit...

So, if staying there, have some beers to sleep better!

The great things with the hotel were: they had a great breakfast with varieties of different things to choose from! The underground was with a close walking-distance from the hotel,however,walking to the city-centre might take about an hour (5 km). The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful! The thing i would change would be that there was no airconditioning in the room, only a small ventilator. It was about 32 degrees celsius when we stayed in munich, so it caused a bit of a problem. Otherwise,great hotel!

Don't know what other people have experienced, we go there once a year: it's perfectly situated close to public transportation, our room was spic and span, the breakfast buffet has got a wide variety of items so everyone should find something. The staff is friendly and as it is not right on a street the rooms are quiet. What more can we ask for?

No air conditioning at all. The rooms were like something you'd find in a cabin by the lake rather than in a hotel. Small bar and small breakfast area. It is in a part of the city that is completely dead. I will say that there is a nice Indian restaurant at the hotel and the staff was friendly.

The location was at the heart of the citybut I was sorry to see the entrance of the hotel.The view from my hotel room was a courtyard, rather a car park.

The room was alright wsith all the essential furniture. The bathroom was small and the uncovered glaring bulbs were an eye sore. never seen mud coloured towels in good hotels in my life.

The receptionists were dumb and some were not helpful.No fan s were provided although it was very hot.

The only good thing about the hotel was the breakfast spread aand the indian hotel "Mehfil".

This is not a 4* hotel, it is a 2* hotel.
There is a horrible smell when you get in the hotel (of dust and dirt), the carpets are incredibly dirty, also the rooms are not cleaned properly.
Do youselves a favor and avoid it!

The free wifi is what brought me to Hotel Carmen. Overall the hotel was very good with breakfast being excellent. The room was small as expected in Europe, but clean and comfy. The hotel is set back from the road so street noise was not a problem (although it was winter and the windows were closed). The staff was very helpful.

The only down sides were it's a bit out of the city center, although an easy S-bahn or U-bahn ride a way. The walls were thin and I could hear my neighbors. Luckily I only had one neighbor and they matched my schedule, but this could have been very bad.

Room Tip: I had room 301 which only had one room adjoining it, which was nice because the walls were thin and...
