Belle Blue Hotel
Ranked #145 of 385 Hotels in Munich
Reviewed 23 July 2013

A very acceptable hotel with 'family-run' feel and all the stuff you want, (good air-con, free Wi-Fi, flat TV) in a compact package, plus thoughtful little extras like a TV listings magazine, Munich guides, free coffee machine all day, which show the owners are trying to give good service. The place is very clean and housekeeping unobtrusive and efficient. Breakfast was OK (we were spoiled because we had just come from the Quality Hotel in Augsburg, see my review) It is a five minute walk from the main railway station and so from the underground, trams and buses. There are several cafes, Rossman, Aldi and Lidl just round the corner and branches of Karstadt and Galleria Kaufhof across the road from the station. Max 10 minutes to the start of the main pedestrian precinct and you can walk to any of the central attractions. From that point of view it was a great base for our 6 days in Munich

It is a mixed kind of area, a restaurant advertising an Iftar Buffet for Ramadan is 2 doors up from an escort bar, with a lot of other small hotels on and just off this street. It is very ethnically diverse and, yes, there are sometimes groups of men on the street and some strip clubs and lap-dance clubs, which are more obvious at night once the neon signs come on. It depends how you feel about that sort of thing. The hotel itself has good security, a perfectly ordinary clientele and is trying hard to produce a good service, seems a shame to let some 'low-life' neighbours spoil their business.

I read earlier reviews that this was in a sketchy part of town and dismissed them, having lived in Philadelphia for 12 years. Well, yeah, it is kinda sketchy. There are nudie dance clubs up and down and groups of men hanging around in every public space. I wasn't too excited to return here at night. If you have a car, reserve parking in advance. I didn't know parking was so difficult in Munich, although the hotel had a partnership with the Martim and it was only 10 euro per night with validation. It's a pretty long walk (15-20 minutes) to the Marienplatz, but not far from the train station. The hallways reminded me of a youth hostel, but the room itself was very modern, with free wi-fi and air conditioning (a must, because it was so noisy down on the street). The breakfast was good. Next time, I would stay closer to the stuff we wanted to visit.

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!
