I booked this hotel early in the year for a conference that ended the day Ocktoberfest opened. Our conference had been originally planned at the technical high school just down the street, but ended up at the technical university on the outskirts of Munich. Nevertheless I always prefer to stay in the city, and the good transport in Munich made this hotel very convenient.
Like most big European cities the room was small, but not Tokyo small. I had a good work area, and the wifi connection was first-rate. Front desk staff were helpful and always cheerful.
However my day started with, and ended with, the bad memory this hotel conjures up. Opened first for the 1972 Munich Olympics, the hotel has memorabilia all around the hotel. That was fine. However the elevator doors were placarded with the Olympic rings and the phrase "Olympiade 1972". Many people will remember what a tragedy this Olympics became, and being reminded of this incident twice a day was disturbing to me. I shared this with hotel management and would hope they consider toning-down the overt reminders of this particular Olympic games.More
