“Served Its Purpose”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2008

The hotel is very close to the Hauptbannhof, the Central train station, it was clean and reasonably priced. We were kept awake by the street noise, there is not AC, so if you are there in hot weather, beware. If you can find a reasonbly priced hotel near the Ost bannhof, I would suggest that area first. If you are looking to get to the Marienplatz, it is just a few stop by train from any of these. Getting around Munich is really easy.

  • Liked — Close to the train station
  • Disliked — Overall feeling of the place was not good, the area surrounding the hotel was not that great either.

Creatif Elephant was for me an on usual hotel. Never the less I did enjoy my stay and find worth the price I paid for.
Since I reserve the cheapest rate, didn’t expect a big room and that’s exactly what I got.
A room with a mini tv and a queen bed!
Bathroom was separated and a cross my room!
I found that hilarious, but other might not!
If you decided to stay here make sure it says ENSUITED room.
Then you now for sure you have a bath facilities in your room.
It didn’t bother me since the purpose was to have a “roof above my head” after a whole day sightseeing and then continue my travel by train.


The hotel has just been renovated so it does look nice and new.
The staff was a mix between happy to help you or just do what they have to do.
The breakfast was great. Plenty of choices for a continental breakfast. (and even so I had the cheapest rate it was included)
However I would advise to have your breakfast as soon as possible, since it can get crowded.
The breakfast room isn’t that big.
Lucky for no, there were no early riser on Sunday and had the whole breakfast section for myself.
The hotel is located 5 min (or less) from the hotel.
As you get off the train, metro go to the stand of the Lufthansa airport bus and with your back to the station keep walking straight, cross the street (pedestrian walk)
Continue heading straight into a small street with a casino/gambling establishment on your right.
Then turn left (you should see a red/white building) keep walking and you will find it!

  • Liked — Free wifi and breakfast. The location 2
  • Disliked — The small tiny room..but that's what you get when you have the cheapest rate

Spent two nights at this hotel in mid-March 2008.

The rooms are nicely appointed, but standard fare for a 2.5 - 3 star hotel; Bathroom was very nice with stand up shower only. Good water pressure. View is of street and buildings across.

The hotel is close to just about everything downtown, 10-20 minutes walk or 5 minutes by subway to Marienplatz, Haufbrau House/Hard Rock; Museums and the nude beach.

It is located super close (3-5 minutes walk) to the Hauptbahnhof central train station, 45 minutes from/to airport;

Parking garage around the corner is convenient, but spendy.
Wi-Fi access. Staff is professional, helpful and fluent in English.

Breakfast is excellent. Included eggs, sliced meats, cheese, breads, yogurt and fruit, juices and coffee.

We chose this hotel since it was listed in our "Let's Go Germany" book, and it was really close to the train station. The hotel exterior and common areas were bright, new, and "creatif", but we were surprised at how bland and tired our room looked. Although the furniture was modern, it looked very well-worn and the lighting was poor.

The rate we received without advance reservation was 75 Euro, which was pretty good. So overall, a decent value for the cost. Comfortable bed, and very convenient location.

Stayed March 2008

We stayed for 1 night at Creatif Elephant in a double room. We were pleasantly surprised to find someone at reception 24/7, and very polite and friendly. We were also pleasantly surprised that there was an elevator!

Our room was nice and clean, the bathroom spotless. The receptionist sold us a soft drink and a beer and gave us glasses to take up to our room, which was a nice touch.

Breakfast was nice, and served hot food in addition to the continental stuff. Waiting staff at breakfast were a bit surly. Also, it was very busy - hard to get a table to yourself.

The internet was available, but in a corner of the breakfast room so not really available until after breakfast finished.

This place does have a good breakfast and free computer access.. I stayed here with several friends and we chose it for the location near the train station. The bathroom has a window in into with exposure to the room so not a lot of privacy. The room was very small. The guy that we signed in with was not friendly but the rest of the front desk people were fine. The location is close to the train station which was great. I would not stay here again. I believe there are better options in Munich for the same price

The room was small, bathroom likewise , no air-conditioning so you had to keep the window open thus hearing street noise. Breakfast- only 2 women helping, and they had to do everything, so often there were items needing to be restocked eg. fruit juice, and you either had to be very patient, or do without. Sometimes there were not enough tables. At the end of the day, I decided I would rather have paid more and got a better hotel.
