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.

Within a walk of a few minutes you find a large number of cinemas, restaurants, small theatres, and, of course, the State Opera House and the "Deutsche Theater".
