The staff was very friendly and very 'johnny on the spot'.... The rooms were a little small, but definitely a cool spot.
The breakfast was a nice continental variety.... and definitely an added plus.
The location in general was easy to get to from the train station and it was easy to get to all the main areas....
The street the hotel is one has a wide variety of entertainment... if you want a casino, a strip-show, etc..... kinda cool to actually be in the middle of all that amusement...
However, the very Middle Eastern ethnicity wouldn't be for everyone ( I never felt threatened, but never felt completely at ease...and would definitely not go out after dark alone).

After 2 different stay's coming and going through Munich, I guess I'll start by saying the hotel staff was terrific, good breakfast, and the room itself a clean, basic, exceptable night's stay both times... But, the downside is, as reported by many other's, is the AREA, which is IMO is a real negative and definitely a not so nice experience to walk through coming and goiing to the Blue Belle at night , it can best be described as a classic seedy european railway station area, and unfortunately simply can not be egnored when rating our stay at Blue Belle. While you always have to overlooking a few short falls in any hotel, our basic 3 star stay at Blue Belle was completely overshadowed by it's surrounding area.
Move this hotel one mile in any direction, and I would recommend it... But sadly I'll be avoiding it next time in Munich

Stayed four nights. While the bed and bath were clean, the walls were filthy and it didn't seem like the cleaning crew actually cleaned the bathroom while we were there. The neighborhood does have strip clubs but the neighborhood still felt safe despite this. Easy walk to the city center. While the location was good, the room wasn't great. Would not go back.

Belle Blue is an excellent little hotel and at a great price. The area has casinos, restaurants, and strip joints but all pose no problem. The rooms are small but this is the true common place in Europe. Nice little breakfast until 10am. The hotel is very clean.

We were greeted early in the morning (well before check-in) by Andrea who helped us map out what to do that day! They held our bags all day and let us freshen up in the hallway bathroom since we had just gotten off of an overnight train. Our room was ready later in the day just when they said it would be! We were very happy with the space and cleanliness of the room. Our only complaint would be that at certain times of the day it would smell like the restaurants on the bottom floor. It smelled like it was coming through the bathroom vent. We just shut the bathroom door and it pretty much fixed the problem until we needed to get into the bathroom again! The area around the hotel was fine. It wasn't nearly as scary as some of the past posts I read indicated. I wouldn't want to walk around by myself at night as a 20-something female, but with my husband and/or during the day it would be fine! It's basically just strip clubs that open up in the evening. It was a 10 min walk to the city center which was amazing as we never took a cab once! We also went to the Aldi around the corner and bought bottled water (I think it was a 6 pack for 2 euro) and were set for a couple of days! The breakfast was extremely convenient on site and yummy. It wasn't anything super special but very much appreciated when in a hurry to get ready and start the days adventure!

The hotel property was nice and the adjustable air conditioner in the room could be adjusted to be pretty cold, which is a plus. Rooms were on the small side, but there was a desk, fridge, and safe in the room. The breakfast was pretty good (boiled eggs, shaved meats, cereals, yogurt, breads, mozzarella/tomato, juices, and a latte/coffee machine). The hotel is 5-10 mins from central station. There were a few negatives about the hotel:

1. Potential theft issue - We were traveling with another couple who stayed in another room. Each of us came up missing money while we were staying at this hotel (100euros for them and 50euros for us), and each of us discovered the money was missing on the same day that we'd left cash in our room while we were out of the room (we didn't normally leave cash out in the room). When we left our money in the room, it was to go have breakfast in the hotel in the morning. When we came back to our room 20 minutes later, our room had been cleaned (at 9am). We discovered we were 50 euros short about 30 minutes later. We did not report this issue to the hotel because we were not 100% certain that the money had been stolen from our room and we did not want to falsely accuse someone. However, based on the circumstances, we do believe someone took the cash from our rooms. Net, be sure to lock up all your cash, even if you're only stepping out to the breakfast room.

2. The hotel is in a sketchy neighborhood. My wife was followed by a group of guys when she was outside the hotel and it just generally didn't seem like a very safe neighborhood.

My husband and I were looking for an afforadable place to stay while we were sightseeing in Münich. This place was perfect-- a bit removed from the busy tourist area, but not too far from everything (just down the street from the train station). The rooms were clean and the breakfast was amazing for being included in the price. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The only downsides were the area outside the hotel was a bit questionable (as far as safety) and the maids came in our room even though we had the sign "do not disturb." Other than that, I would recommend this place to anyone.
