“not great for Americans”
Reviewed 24 November 2007

A small and cozy family-run hotel in a decent location (in Schwabing, near the Münchner Freiheit subway station). And if you like relaxed Old-World charm, you might enjoy staying here. Breakfast was very pleasant, with a fresh Continental buffet, and staffed by a cheerful lady who always remembered who likes which drink in the morning.

But there are problems, too. First, I didn't get all the messages that people left for me with the front desk. I got maybe two out of five over the course of a four nights' stay. Second, they never once got my wake-up call right. One time the phone didn't work; one time the manager forgot (or was sleeping); I don't know. There's really no excuse for it. If you absolutely need to get your messages or to be woken up in the morning, this isn't the hotel for you.

They had just installed wireless internet a day or two before my stay, and I can tell you that it hardly worked in anyone's room. There was a PC in the lobby that anyone could use (when it was working, ca. 75% of the time), and down there I found the wireless signal strong enough to catch as well, but there's a big difference between internet access at a public PC in the lobby and wireless internet access in your room. Don't count on the latter.

All in all--not a disaster, but I wouldn't stay here again.

  • Liked — In a quiet and pleasant neighborhood.
  • Disliked — They're not equipped for 21st-century travelers.
