“Mix of 5* and 1* features”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

This was a tough one to review... There are some really good features about it and the price is definitely a bargain, yet few things has really put me off.
I stayed for two days in a single room. The room was tiny but very functional, I had to trouble arranging my stuff comfortably. It was very clean, and both the room and the hotel's main areas are nicely decorated and finished in light wood. The shower was one of the best in terms of water pressure & temperature rangeI've had in a while.
Location is truly superb - it's 5-10 min from the main station on one side and the bustling historic and shopping city centres on the other, yet it's hidden from all the buzz.
Another positive was the breakfast - not a huge selection, but very much to my taste and of great quality - baked goods, cold meets, fresh farm cheese, surprisingly good for a hotel coffee.
Now - for the not so good things, which brought the rating from 5* to 3* for me. First and foremost - the staff, especially reception, were incompetent, unwelcoming and patronising. I arrived very early (7am) and was told the room would be ready by 11am, even though my booking had 13:30 as the check-in time. I return at 11:40, and there's another reception staff who's shocked by the very idea the room can ever be ready before 13:30, pretty much implying I was lying... A minute later maid informs him that the room is indeed ready... It's not a big deal, I was in the end checked-in early, but with an attitude. Dared I ask for a help with my heavy bag - as my room was on the 1st floor and there's no elevator - he rolled his eyes and left me struggling with the stairs.
Second big disappointment was the WiFi - I can deal with several levels of logins & passwords if it brings me a fast connection. Not the case - and I'm not talking streaming videos, it was a matter of luck to get the signal, and the traffic was not enough even for an email with no attachments. Worst hotel internet ever.
Finally, my room was facing the inner courtyard and hence was hidden from the street traffic. Yet, some people (staff?) would sit there chatting & smoking till late, and even with the windows locked I was getting both the noise and the cigarette smell.
Overall, 3* is an average rating, but there was nothing average about this place - some things (price, location, decor, cleanliness, breakfast) were spot-on, but others (staff, WiFi) were simply dreadful.

A five minute walk from the main station, and within walking distance of the Marienplatz and all the local shopping. The staff was excellent, the rooms were adequately spacious, bathroom was nice, and everything was very clean. We were also very pleased with the included breakfast. The location was outstanding and for what you pay, it will be difficult to beat this hotel. We would certainly stay here on our next visit and recommend this to anyone traveling to Munich. This hotel is a great choice.

Room Tip: Choosing a room that does not overlook the street will make your stay a little more quiet.

This hotel is 1/12 blocks from the main train station in Munich, with easy walking to the city center. The staff was most helpful with providing tips on restaurants, tours and places of interest. Our room was on the first floor (one floor above ground floor); it was very clean with a lovely bathroom - even heated tile on the floor! It is an ideal place to stay when vacationing in Munich.

Room Tip: A back room has less street noise- we were not bothered at all.

I stayed at Hotel Eder for 2 nights. My single room was on the third floor so I had to carry my suitcase up 3 long stairs. The room was small but good for 1 person. There is a bathroom with toilet and shower so it was very nice. Wifi is free and good signal, absolutely no problem. Reception staff are very nice and helpful. Breakfast was okay and adequte for the room rate. The hotel is very close to Hauptbahnhof (the Munich central train station), less than 5-min walk. Hence if you are travelling by train, it is very convenient.

Excellent city centre hotel, close to station & bars/restaurants. Single room was compact but clean & quiet. Decent breakfast for budget hotel. Friendly & helpful reception staff. Wifi signal strong. There is no lift so not really suitable for elderly or infirm.

Room Tip: Lower floors if elderly or infirm as there is no lift.

This hotel is conveniently located, room rate very reasonable, and service alright – especially in letting us store ski gear in a downstairs space. The drawback is the lack of a lift. We could cope even on the 3rd floor, but anyone with limited mobility would have a problem.

Room Tip: Avoid the corner rooms numbered –6, which are doubles in a single room space, narrow and cramped.
