Reviewed 9 January 2014

Stayed here with husband and 30 year old daughter enroute to Salzburg so wanted to be close to station for early morning train. Easy to get to from airport by train and close to city centre.
Room and bathroom comfortable. Tea and coffee in room and breakfast, complimentary, very good.
Only downside was lack of proper curtain on bathroom window - it was a thin blind that fell down!

Room Tip: (No swimming pool - rating won't unclick!)

Stayed at the Helvetia Hotel in Munich 3 nights in December 2013. A comfortable, clean hotel in an affordable price bracket. The location is unbeatable, very close to both the Hauptbahnhof (central train station) and the city centre. Plenty of coffee shops and restaurants around, even late into the night.

My only problem at the Helvetia was a lady that worked at Reception called Julia. She seemed mighty unfriendly, and treated me as the queen of the hotel and I'm one of her servants. Apart from her, though, all other staff were nice and friendly, so I'd come back to Helvetia if I could avoid Julia.

Room Tip: Whether you are a smoker or not, I'd advise you to book a smoking room. This way you get a room...

I stayed here with my boyfriend last week, and we loved the place. The room was clean, and each room has it's own unique print on the wall- we had the cow room!
The staff were friendly.
The Old Town was a 5 minute walk, and there was a great Italian restaurant around the corner.
Great value.

If you are looking for somewhere clean/comfortable to lay your hat after a busy day exploring Munich, in a convenient location, with friendly staff -- then I highly recommend Helvetia. The staff were very helpful with advice/recommendations, always pleasantly greeted us when we entered/exited the hotel, and even provided us with extra pillows and printed out our boarding passes for our flight. A lot of people have criticized the location as being "dodgy," but we thought it was great: right next to the main station as well as walking distance to the city centre. Yes, there are casinos, nightclubs, girlie dancing places, etc. around, but we never received ANY hassle from anyone on the street, nor did we feel unsafe at any time. Plus, busier areas are generally safer than quiet, dark side-streets. Would be happy to stay at Helvetia on the next visit to Munich!

The room was well-equipped with all I could need, including towels, soap, shower caps, dryer, teabags, coffee, mineral water, air-conditioning, wifi, television, electric water kettle, closet with hangers, etc. The room was tidied between the two nights that I stayed. The staff spoke perfect English and were very helpful. Maybe the location is in a not-so-friendly neighborhood, but that's just typical for any place near a city's main train station. Besides there was 24-hour reception, so I felt quite safe. stayed in a Standard Double Bed Private Ensuite in August 2013

You can't beat the location of this hotel in regard to transit and the Marienplatz. The first night we were a bit weary of walking around in the area surrounding the hotel as it felt a bit "sketchy" but by the second night it was fine. The staff was very friendly, the room was just fine. They allowed us to leave our bags at the hotel for an entire day and allowed us access to a bathroom to get cleaned up and changed for our night train out of Munich.

Stayed a couple of days in this hotel, very well located just a few meters from the main train station. Breakfast was very good and the price is quiet affordable. The room distribution was a little bit awkward, but for a couple of days is ok.
