This was first visit to Hotel Nymphenburg. We were greeted by English speaking receptionist, and directed to out room. This was above the front door and facing the very busy Nymphenburger Strasse, and at a crossroad junction. We thought it would be noisy but the windows kept out all the noise apart from one emergency vehicle which made us jump out of our skin. We stayed in June, however it was the coldest wettest weather possible for Munich. 3 days of drenching rain and temperatures of 6-8 degC. The room was a pleasant temperature, not too hot as is often the case in some hotels. The radiators were switched off, but could have been used. I do not know what it would have been like had the weather been normal, as opening the window would not have been an option. Hopefully we will find out next visit.
The bathroom was tiny. There was the smallest bath I have ever seen- probably a half bath. I though it might be amusing to try it, but we found more interesting things to do in our time there.
The shower was good although a bit difficult to get just the right temperature. There were no places in the bathroom to put anything apart from a toothbrush, and to get in or out one had to stand between the loo and the wall, breathe in, then open the door and squeeze out. Possibly 'large' people may find this bathroom a problem. It was ok for us, and clean and pleasant.
The bedroom was a reasonable size, the beds good size and comfortable, the decor was fine in the bedroom, but the bathroom door looked the worse for wear with the previous dark red paint showing through the chips in the white.
The bedroon really would have benefited from a separate mirror. There was one in the bathroom, but with 2 people sharing it would have helped. Also the plug on one of the bedside lights did not reach the socket. On the day we left we found an extension lead behind the curtain!
Breakfast was good- the usual continental selection. The breakfast room was pleasant, with big windows on 2 sides looking onto shrubs (we could just make them out through the deluge of rain :-( ) . Trees and shrubs filled the frontage, so one would not know it was on a main road.
The hotel staff pretty much left us alone but seemed approachable. I think most of the guests were German .The breakfast manager asked us our room number, but had we left the key on the table that would not have been necessary. When we checked out the receptionist spoke very good English and was friendly.
The hotel is in a very nice safe area with many good dining places around. You would need transport into town, but there is plenty of choice, bus, tram, underground train, and you could be in town within 15 minutes of leaving the hotel. You can walk it in about 40 mins, depending on your fitness.
