“Almost perfect”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Clean, convenient, great staff (shout out to Stefan Gabbart, who manages the front desk skillfully and seemingly effortlessly), and attractive. We would definitely stay here when we come back; large, comfortable rooms (we chose one with a full shower); very cute little bar with great bartenders. Nice breakfast buffet in the sunny breakfast room.
Excellent location within walking distance to Marienplatz and central city.
A perfect choice.

I and a colleague stayed in the Platzl hotel in the beginning of July while attending a conference in Munich and we couldn't be happier with the hotel! As many reviews already noted, the location is one of the main advantages of the hotel as it is walking distance to most things of interest. Our conference was quite far away from the center but the nearby subway made it easy to get there. The room was fairly spacious by Munich standards, clean and had everything you need. The hotel itself is fairly small, which is always a good thing in my eyes. It had an amazing Turkish baths inspired facility with sauna, steam room and massage showers which was great after long days at the conference. Breakfast deserves a separate mention I think, as it was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had with great variety of fruits, juices, sausages, pastries, yogurts, eggs made fresh on request just the way you like them. I also loved that employees were dressed in traditional clothing. Basically, the only thing I could complain about is the price, but considering the prices of most hotels in Munich, the location and service of the hotel it's probably worth it. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: A room that doesn't face Hofbrauhaus is preferable as it does tend to get loud.

Heart of the old town..EZ walk to many sights...good restaurants 1-3 blks away..do not go to the Italian La Galleria across the street..salty and overpriced...ATM directly across the street in the Post Office. Do go to the high end deli one block across the street and up the "stairs"...not too far from Subway...a little over $65 Euros from the airport...beerhalls and gardens just blocks away..Try Brenners for fine dining but not expensive!...Staff friendly and good service...incredible breakfasts...take others advice about the rooms and locations..we were not there during the truly busy season...good elevators..rooms mostly quiet...my only complaint about the room was that the darn telephone was on the desk and NOT on the night stand by the bed! This is terribly inconvenient..anyone calling you have to get out of bed to answer the phone..I solved this by unwrapping the more than extra telephone wire under the desk and stretching it across the room and putting it on a small table by the bed..not quite long enough for the night stand but adequate to not have to get out of bed...not sure the mgmt. appreciated that...ALSO as incredible as the breakfast is...it could use some more meats that are NOT PORK..yes, I know I am in Germany but enough is enough..one "veal" sausage is not enough..2 small complaints I guess but otherwise for the money at the time a good value.

Room Tip: read all reviews...

Very nice hotel with an excellent service and comfort. Buffet for breakfast is excellent with various choice. Very good service from all the staff.
Perfectly situated in the center of Munich, close to the Underground or S-Bahn.
It is highly recommended.

The Platzl is certainly not inexpensive, but only after arriving did we realize that its location is priceless. Just a short walk around the corner to Marienplatz, many other important sites, and the S-bahn subway to the airport. We asked for a superior room, and apparently that gets you a quieter room facing the courtyard (important since some of the exterior rooms are near the infamous HofBrauhaus beerhall which can attract some noise into the night). Personally, I found the hotel room pretty small and spartan for the rate we were paying...but we treated well, the breakfast was unusually good, the restos associated with the hotel -- the Pfistermuhle and even the Ayinger pub -- didn't disappoint. And, the location, let me repeat, is something not to overlook.

Fantastic location just 4 minutes walk from Marienplatz and the station with direct trains (S1 & S8) to the airport, also just round the corner from the Hofbräuhaus and Hard Rock Cafe.
My room on the 5th floor was very comfortable and well equipped and with the window shut you could not hear a sound and with the window open you could hear the famous Glockenspiel and various other church bells ringing. The bed was very comfortable, air conditioning worked well and there was a fairly well stocked mini-bar and a safe in the room.
Breakfast was brilliant with a huge choice of hot and cold foods and is served from 6.30 till 11.00.
The staff were all very friendly, profesional and helpfull and spoke very good English, the only negative point about my stay in Munich is the amount of weight I have put on with all the good food and beer.

We have visited Munich many times and stayed in several good hotels. This time, on our way home from the Dolomites, we chose the Platzl for its location in the centre of the Old Town near the market and Marienplatz. Also it has many excellent reviews on Booking and Tripadvisor! We paid a little bit more for a quiet room overlooking the courtyard which was well worth it for the two nights we stayed. The bedroom was comfortable with good quality beds and bedding. The bathroom is efficient and functional. Breakfast is excellent but when the main room is busy, there is an overflow room some distance away. This entails a lot of walking too and fro, collecting food and drink items, and would be very tricky for less mobile guests. On a positive note, the long walks involved will keep the weight down as you enjoy the lovely food on offer! Breakfast is served from 6.30am until 11.00am giving tremendous flexibility to travelers.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and get a courtyard room for quietness.

Dear Brandon, thank you very much for your kind feedback! The way, you have written about our breakfast and it's situation is really a new aspect. Our fitness-room is in the 5th floor - but, reading your report, we are reflecting to close it. Breakfastroom will be fitnessroom. What do you think about it? But the main thing for us is, that you feel good in our house! Best regards - Heiko Buchta and team

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
You place great importance on quality and want to be right in the middle of Munich's city life? Then Platzl Hotel Munich and its culinary offerings are the address for you. This traditional four-star Superior Hotel and its two popular restaurants - the Pfistermuhle and Wirtshaus Ayingers - are located in the heart of Munich's old city, right beside the famous Hofbrauhaus. And just a short walk from the Marienplatz, the Bavarian State Opera, Maximilianstrasse and Viktualienmarkt. The Inselkammer family and its team combine Bavarian hospitality and traditional style elements with a modern lifestyle and state-of-the-art technology. It begins with a warm welcome in the foyer, continues through the 167 guest rooms and only ends when you leave Munich through the city's historic quarter. This combination of tradition and modernity also creates the ideal setting for private celebrations such as birthdays or weddings, but also conferences and seminars. Your visit should also include a taste of the culinary offerings at our two restaurants - because gastronomy has a long tradition at the Platzl. As early as the beginning of the last century, the Platzl stage was graced not just by cabaret giants such as Karl Valentin. Good Bavarian food also made repeat appearances, being served to guests before and after the performances. Today, the Pfistermuhle is synonymous with sophisticated Bavarian cuisine - at Munich's only preserved city mill. Since the year 2000, people from Munich and elsewhere have enjoyed the hearty regional dishes at Wirtshaus Ayingers, which is next door, while the charming stores and eateries in the "Platzlgassen" add to the lively atmosphere in the Platzl. Our outside bar the Platzl Karree presents a unique bar concept in Munich's old town. Because of the stylish and yet down-to-earth design the fine balancing act between tradition and modernity with the Platzl Karree is perfectly realized. The dominating colors anthracite with burgundy and the dark parquet flooring create a bar to relax and enjoy. In the new Josefa Bar & Kaffee we serve locally produced unique spirits, cool beverages with herbs freshly from the Viktualien market and own cocktail creations. ... more   less
