Stayed 3 nights at this hotel on a business trip that took place in May 2012.
Hotel is very modern and comfortable although it is located in a business area which means there is nothing to do at a walkable distance. Hotel is located 4,5 km North of the city center and 1,5 km West of Englisher Garden (at more or less half of it’s length) and 500 m from the Nordfriedhof subway station (U6 – blue subway line). From this subway station it is 6 stations away from Marienplatz (city center). To get around we used subway during the day and taxi at night.
On the top floor of the hotel there is a small gym with a couple of exercising machines and a sauna.
Breakfast at hotel was pretty good with the normal food you can find at this type of hotels: fruits, milk, variety of breads, ham, cheese, cereals. I especially enjoyed the fact you can make your own freshly squeezed orange juice and that they have espresso coffee (ask for double). Service is pretty friendly.
Room is modern. One of the walls is a window facing outside (i was facing North), which means you have to close the shutters while getting dressed or you could be seen from outside by everybody driving along the freeway. Bed only has a blanket that is used as bed sheet + blanket (modern stuff !). Room has a flat screen TV with mainly German channels and a couple of others, for example: TVE, BBC, CNN. Mini bar is free but only has 2 bottles of water + 2 soda drink’s.
Bathroom is openly connected to the bed room which means you can basically take a shower and look outside through the room window.
Since we were travelling within a group of 9 people Michael from the front desk was great with his dinner suggestions (excellent choices) and helped us by calling and reserving for the group and arranging for our transportation. Other staff was also very friendly.
Also check reception for special subway ticket prices. You could get special tickets here.
