“One of the best stays anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

The Helvetia must be one of the best stays I have ever had anywhere. For a single room the size was more than adequate, I dare say ample. Also very clean and quiet. There is an option for breakfast which I did not take as Munich offers some great alternatives. The Hotel is located right off an Underground exit and a few hundred meters from the train station which is very convenient.

The (minor) downside is that the free internet was not reliable or fast enough.

I will definitely consider this place again on another visit.

Hotel Helvetia makes a good effort at providing a 3 star hotel It is conveniently located, 100m from the U-Bahn entrance and 400m from the Hbf. Breakfast was a reasonable buffet selection and hot scrambled eggs and bacon and worth the €9.90 charged. My room was quiet and comfortable enough, the only downside was a slight damp smell in the bathroom. All in all a good option is you want to be near the station in Munich.

This hotel has rooms that are very very good and wide, clean, with TV, free WI - FII. The hotel is exactly in the centre of Munich, and it's very usefull to visit the city. the staff is really very friendly.
There is a special price for the park for the customers of the hotel. We had a problem with the ticket of the park, but they solved it as soon as possible.

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!)

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

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!
