“Excellent location to Munich Central Station”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We were in Munich for a couple of days and this hotel was selected for its location to the train station. The train station is handy for bus tours too.

We took the train to the centre of town to visit the main attractions.

Hotel is a short walk to/from Augustina Biergarten (fabulous food & beer)

The room was very warm and there was no air-con. Didn't matter so much for us as the weather was cold.

We had 3 people in our room and the 3rd bed - a convertible chair - was very uncomfortable.

The hotel is well priced and located, clean & reasonably comfortable. Reception staff were efficient.

The location isn't ideal for sightseeing, since it's close to the station (really, really close), but not that much to the Downtown, more charming area. You can, however, get trams or buses really easily. The room itself is ok -- not a good view or anything, but comfortable, with good heat (since it was Winter) and decent internet. Breakfast isn't that good and there are few options to eat nearby (though I would imagine everyone who is there for leisure would spend little time in the surroundings). Overall, good enough for its price (one of the best in the city).

Yes, Creatif Hotel Elephant (never got the elephant part, though) is located just three minute walk from the Munich Central Station and it is the location I chose it for in the first place.
It also has a rather colorful facade, which makes it to stand out in the neighborhood.
Although pretty close to two major thoroughfares and has a multistory parking lot behind it, the hotel is quiet enough to give you a good night's sleep.The staff are very nice and helpful, the breakfast was surprisingly good for a budget hotel like this, but not 'creatif' at all.
The room... Well, it WAS clean. And it was... well, shall we say spartan?
First, it was small. For a solo traveler like me it was OK. But it also had some very peculiar shape - rather long and about 170 cm wide. Yes, 170 cm. The bathroom was clean, with some peculiar color bricks and tiles, which must also be part of the "creatif" side of the place, though towels seemed rather worn.
In short - nice hotel for a couple of night stay, especially if you are looking forward to a train journey around Germany.

We stayed in this hotel during one of our previous visits to Munich; liked it despite squeaky beds (unavoidable for pine-wood furniture). So, this time we did not hesitate to book it again. But this time it was slightly different.
All good things about the hotel - friendly and helpful personnel, excellent location and good price - are still the same as before... And we really appreciate it.
However, there are some issues we discovered this time.
1. Our room had sleeping arrangements for 3 people (we asked for 2 people, but were given this one). Well, one double and one single beds occupy the whole room leaving no space for suit-cases and creating difficulties to move around.
2. The shower was really small and inconvenient - small corner bath with curtain. We know that other rooms have modern shower. So, it was unpleasant surprise for us.
3. Sound-proofing. I would say it is no sufficient. This time we had neighbors on the both sides and could hear when people come and leave their rooms. It was a real issue for us as after long flight from Sydney to Munich we wanted to have more quiet environment.

We would consider this hotel for our next trip, but we would be very specific about rooms - asking for rooms 1 or 2 on any floor - no neighbors and good shower.

I've stayed on the Creatif Hotel a few times that I stayed in Munich. The hotel is very central and the staff very helpful. The decor throughout is a bit qwirky. I would recommend creatif to a friend.

Only one block from station, creative little hotel with port hole window to bathroom & hansel/Gretzky cottage furniture. Mid understanding that breakfast was included ( it wasn't) however it was nice selection so ended up being ok value for what we ate. Overall choice was for the location - turned out to be a great place to stay with its colours & style.

Stayed here for 3 nights during a visit to a few countries through Europe.

Reception staff all very helpful and friendly, were happy for me to check in a few hours early which was appreciated. Room was basic (all pine!) but clean and tidy, did like the little packs of Haribo on the pillow!

Location is excellent - just a few minutes walk from Munich HBF railway station, and easy links to trams/buses. The city centre was a 15 min walk away.

Used the wifi service (2 Euro for 24hrs) a lot - found it to be of a good speed. Never tried the food there at all.

All in a all a no frills clean and basic hotel in a great location. Recommended.
