“Nice little Hotel near the Railway Station”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

We chose The Eder for several reasons - it's a small family-run more traditional Bavarian hotel as opposed to the modern chain hotels you get in every city. Also, it was near the Railway Station (so easy to get to) and also 5-10 mins walk to Karlsplatz and Marianplatz for restaurants, sightseeing, shopping etc. And the reviews on Tripadvisor described it as clean and comfortable which is basically what we were after for a couple of nights in Munich. Obviously, there is no lift there so if you have a lot of heavy luggage probably it's best to ask for a room on a lower floor.

Our room was certainly clean and comfortable even though the bathroom was a little tight space-wise. The staff were friendly, helpful and spoke good English, and the breakfasts were very pleasant in the mornings - meats and cheeses, juices, coffee on the table, fruit and yoghurt, bread and jams and boiled eggs in the basket (didn't find them the first day we were there). Our first night, we dined in the 'Augustiner Brau' restaurant on Marianplatz which was very good, and the second night, as we had walked alot during the day, we went with a recommendation from reception for a restaurant just minutes down the back road 'Alt Gesellenhaus' which was also very good - we ate in the little courtyard/garden area.

My initial concerns about being in an area close to the Railway Station (sometimes usually seedy) were unfounded as the side street felt safe and quiet even though there is a casino nextdoor. There were some pretty major roadworks outside the front door of the hotel, but we didn't hear any noise from them at all while we were staying but then again we were out all day. So, overall, we had a happy stay, and would gladly book again if ever we should return to Munich.

Room Tip: Choose a lower floor as no lift. The quietest rooms are probably at the back of the hotel.

I stayed for 4 nights during a very crowdy time in Munich. It is simple and comfortable, has an excellent location, very close to Hauptbahnhof, very close to Karlplatz, very clean, frendly personnel, excellent breakfast. The bathroom was a little small, but considering the fair price it was a very nice package.

This is a small mom & pop hotel locate about 2 blocks from the central train station in Munich. It is off the main street (Bayerstrassa) so it is quiet.
All the inter city, suburban, and urban trains come into this station as well as a lot of the buses and trams so it is easy to get from here to anywhere in Munich. I stayed in a single room and it was about 8 feet wide by 12 feet long with a tiny bathroom. I was in room 49, which is on the ground floor. The hotel serves a nice German breakfast (meats, breads, cereals, milk, orange juice, coffee, fruits). The rooms are spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable. The one drawback is that it is not air conditioned. So this can be an issue if it gets hot. I was fortunate and the weather was just right. I slept with the windows open which kept it cool. My windows faced the courtyard so I didn't get any traffic noise, but I did get noise from people sitting in the courtyard and talking until late in the evening.

This is not a fancy hotel. It is a good basic place to lay your head at night that is convenient to the entire city. I stayed three nights and was happy for the inexpensive price and great location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the courtyard, not the street if you want a quiet room

We were only in Munich for two days and walked around the city a lot, coming back only to crash at night. The hotel Eder worked very well for such an agenda. It is a very nice, simple hotel, that is an easy walk to the train station. It is only about 10-15 minutes, by foot, to the city center as well. The rooms, while small, had everything we needed, as well as being clean and comfortable. The staff at the front desk were very nice, even having breakfast ready early for us due to a morning flight. Breakfast was solid, albeit not memorable. The free wifi was nice to have at night and worked fine. All in all a nice little place.

Great location, very good staff and breakfast, good cleanliness and value, no extras...
Nice clean hotel with very helpful staff and a nice breakfast with a location that makes it easy to get around. Wifi worked well. Nice garden area. Our room was small and simply furnished .. A desk, a wardrobe, two beds and a chair. The shower worked great. It was perfect for what we wanted which was a safe, clean, comfortable place to sleep so that we could tour the city. If you want to hang out or relax at a hotel it's probably not the best choice

I've stayed at the Eder a few times over the years now, the Eder is a family hotel, not a chain, so you can be safe in the knowledge that the hotel is run with an amazing level of pride.
The hotel is perfectly located being just a two minute walk from Karlsplatz where you can catch the S-Bahn Trains S1 & S8 direct to and from the airport with no changes, and also a two minute walk from the Haupbahnhof (main train station) with connections to the rest of Europe. Both are also stops for the U-Bahn (underground trains), Trams and Buses.
The hotel itself is typically Bavarian with ultra clean rooms that are both functional and comfy, but may be a bit smaller than our friends from USA are used to if you've only ever stayed at larger chain hotels. The fixtures & furnishings are all excellent quality & I know a good matress when I sleep on one !
Breakfast is typically continental with a lovely fresh selection of cold meats, bread, cheeses, cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, boiled eggs, sweet pastries, tea & coffee & fruit juices.
The hotel itself does not have a restaurant, but if you can't find somewhere to eat in this part of town you are not trying hard enough ! In the hotels locale there are all your usual fast food joints if thats your kind of thing, there are also a huge array of restaurants from all corners of the world and cultures, walk from Karlsplatz towards Mariansplatz and you can find many more restaurants and traditional Bavarian food in the guise of the Auguststeiner Großgaststätte and the over-touristy Hofbrauhaus.
The hotel staff are always friendly, helpful & knowledgable, and speak excellent English.
I keep coming back as this is my sort of hotel, family run - prime location - and excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room if you can't handle stairs.

Staff very friendly, attentive and helpful. The breakfast was great and the dining rooms had a real German feel. Can't say enough good about the place. There was some street noise but you have to remember you're in the city and it is a small family place.
The second best place we stayed during our 2 week vacation in Germany. Definitely the best breakfast we had. Highly recommend
