Ranked #16 of 67 Munich B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 July 2013

It was a great pleasure to stay again in this little hotel. The shared bathrooms are no problem, all is very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. Fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee, tea - we had all we needed. Less then 5 min. to the metro, bus, good restaurants around. Belo Sono is our prefered adress in Munich.

Room Tip: We love the little apartment with the kitchen and bathroom.

I got a double room with my girlfriend for 5 days in Munich. The room was very nice, and even had a balcony. The shared bathroom really isn't a big inconvenience, and the maids keep things very clean. The staff were awesome and very helpful with explaining the local transit system, and recommending places to check out. Overall, I'm definitely staying here again when I take another trip to Munich.

Great little hotel/pension close to public transport, supermarket, cafes and restaurants. Super comfortable beds with spotless bathroom. Fridge, kettle and small dining table a big bonus. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend if you're heading to Munich!

The room itself was all you need from a pension. Clean, decent enough bed. Shared bathroom, microwave and kettle downstairs. Location isn't great. Its two blocks from the metro stop 'Schwanthalerhohe', which depending on where you are isn't great to get back to as you sometimes need to make a couple of changes. Check-in hours are a bit narrow, only 3 hour window on a weekend. I am not sure what they do outside of those times. When returning at night, you have to look for the light switch, which means a few strides in the dark before you get to turn it on! Lastly, the place smells a bit of smoke. According to another review, if there is a balcony in your room - those rooms stink! My room didn't smell as I didn't have a balcony, but the rest of the place smelt a bit icky.

Dear neofytos,
thank you for staying at Belo Sono. Our location is only 2 minutes walking distance from the underground, bus and taxi station Schwanthalerhöhe. Maybe you walked in the wrong direction?
We are at Belo Sono between 9:30 - 19:00. While we are cleaning, the office is closed. It opens for scheduled arrivals around 12:30. Guests arriving late can use the self check-in details. You can call and email us all the time. Meaning, if you have a question at 9:00 just call. If you have a question at 9:30 talk to us or call and we meet you. We have seen many guests buzzing the door bell when we were cleaning the rooms instead of just coming to us directly. I think that's because people keep thinking this is a hotel.
Belo Sono is a non-smoking accommodation. It is not allowed to smoke inside the building and it is not allowed to smoke on the balcony. There is a bank and an ashtray in the yard for smokers. Unfortunately, some people do not respect the non-smoking rule. I am sorry for that and wish smokers would be more respectful.
Also: when you are staying at a place and have a problem or do not like the room, why don't you just talk to the front office? they can help you out most of the times and they are all happy to help if you give them the chance. Don't you think?

Stayed at this property twice in one week, great location, three blocks from the octoberfest fair grounds, and beer gardens. The first stay was in a room without a balcony, simple with a shared bathroom. The second stay was a room with a small balcony, which people could smoke on, which left the room smelling like an ashtray. The rooms are located on multiple floors, and there is no elevator.

Dear Roger,
thank you for staying at Belo Sono twice. I am glad to hear that you liked your stay and would book again.
Belo Sono is a non-smoking accommodation. It is not allowed to smoke in the building. not even on the balcony. We have a bank and an ashtray in the yard where smokers can go and smoke. Unfortunately not all guests respect the rules what makes me angry and sad at the same time. There is nothing I can do and I appologize for their behaviour.
Thank you for pointing that out. Maybe some smoker will read this and think about what they are doing to us and to other guests.
Kind regards

We were only staying the one night as a slow paced arrival to our final destination, Morocco. I did want to see some of the sights but that would mean we would be checking in after the office was closed. This was not a problem and Martina was very helpful in actually suggesting we leave our luggage in the main train station lockers instead of trekking to the Pension first to check in. She said she would provide a code for us to get in and we would be able to come when we were ready, we were also departing before the office opened and that too was not a problem. Martina was so very helpful from start to finish, she provided me with all the information I needed to arrive and depart with ease. We were even provided with a list of restaurants in the area ahead of time and a detailed picture map of how to enter the Pension and return the key when we left. Martina made sure we were well taken care of even though we never actually met; all plans were executed as discussed. Martina definitely takes care to make sure your stay with her is perfect in every way. We found our room clean, comfortable and the shared bathroom was never an issue…of course, we were only there the one night, but we had no problems at all. The bedroom was spacious and the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was always open when we needed it and it was always clean, with good water pressure and plenty of hot water…and there was no noise from the streets so we had a good night’s rest.

There were plenty of restaurants open late and two at the corner street of the Pension. The U-ban was very close by as well as the taxi stand and the bus. We decided to take a cab to the main train station in the a.m. as the next train to leave from our station wasn’t for another 25 min., we didn’t want to chance missing our connecting Lufthansa airport bus that left the main train station at 5:15 a.m. Even at that hour we were able to purchase a coffee and a pretzel in the main train station. Just note, you will have to climb stairs to get to your room as there is no lift in this Pension, at least we didn’t see one, so if this is a problem, then you should discuss with Martina before you look elsewhere, she may have a suggestion or solution. if not, you should definitely consider staying here, Martina will make sure your stay if a perfect one. Thanks Martina!

Dear guest, thank you so much for your feedback.
A late check-in is indeed no problem at all. I can arrangte it by using the key-boxes. It is very important that guests contact me in advance and tell me their arrival time. Some guests arrive early or depart late. The luggage lockers at the main train station are very convenient. Guests can leave their luggage there once they have to go back to the station anyway.
I am at Belo Sono between 9:30 and 19:00, but even after 19:00 you can contact us by calling or sending an email. The office is closed while we are doing the cleaning but we are there. Guests can just give a call and we meet them.
We have many new restaurants in the area which you should try ;-) So, what are your travel plans for 2015?
Kind regards,
Martina

Stayed here when I was in Munich over the weekend. The rooms are really nice and well furnished. It was very comfortable and homely. The room is heated and there is a wash basin in the room. The bathroom was shared with a few other rooms but it was not a problem as it was very clean.

Also liked that the U-Bahn was only a 5 minute walk away. And it is only a few stops from the centre.

The only thing that was lacking was interaction with the staff. Perhaps it was because we stayed over the easter holidays? The check-in area was often closed when we were around so we did not get to talk to the staff personally. However, they had previously emailed us some maps and recommendations. That was really nice and helpful of them. :)

Dear cherryadexx, thank you for staying at Belo Sono.
I am happy that you had a good time here and liked the accommodation. I hoe you can visit soon and check out what is new. We work at Belo Sono from 9:30 - 19:00 every day. You can find us cleaning the rooms in the morning and in the office after 12:30. If we are not there, that means that we are still upstairs. You can call or email us 24/7. Maybe you left before 9:30 and came back after 19:00 or didn't call? That is the problem most of the time. Guests don't realize that we can't be upstairs and in the office at the same time haha.
Be save!
