Novotel Munich City

Reviewed 10 May 2013

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip to Munich. The hotel is centrally located, close to the English Gardens.
The hotel is nice, clean, in a quiet street, and the room was big.
The bathroom was nice, but the drain needs to be cleaned out as water collected on the floor and took a long time to drain.
The breakfast was very good, and they had made to order eggs and omelets.
But - as a business traveller I find it incredibly annoying to have to pay extra for WiFi. 9 EUR for 24 hour access to the Internet is just a rip-off. To me this says that "Since ou're a traveller, and can afford to stay at our hotel we will rip you off some more by charging for WiFi". In 2013 this is not something that a serious hotel should do.
So, overall nice, clean etc - but I will not stay here again.

A bit pricey considering location of this Novotel but first impressions were good! We booked two bedrooms and although exceptionally clean, both smelt heavily of smoke and as none smokers this was offputting! Receptionist apologised but said unfortunately some people did not abide by the rules. This was a lame excuse and normally we would have asked to speak to the manager but as we were only staying one night decided to avoid the aggravation.

Tried the leisure facilities; pool not bad but sauna and steam room not in operation and no one around to advise. Again, not good for price charged. If you are a smoke and not bothered about leisure facilities, you might rate this hotel higher.

If you have difficulty walking, this hotel is a good 15 minute walk to the centre.

Room Tip: Non-smokers insist on SMOKE FREE room!

Do
Great value and excellent location!
Would definitely stay there again.
My children loved it ...and the playroom with the Xboxes.
Proximity to the Sbahn and the Munchen Sbahn Ubahn grid.

Don't
None
Got a good package when prepaid 3 days and that was an excellent value for a downtown hotel in Munchen.

When I arrived the hotel I found cobweb was hanging down the ceiling of the toilet of the room. The bed sheet wasn't perfectly clean and the curtains of the room was dirty (obviously somebody may have killed some mosquitos using the hotel rooms curtains!)

Thanks God after bringing this complaint to the hotel management they upgraded my room and the next room was perfect. So I thanked them for this. Another surprise in this hotel is that, if you want to check out at aroun 3:30 you can't !!! Because somehow the computers are closing accounting books I think and you can't check out before that IT operation is over. Anyhow I had to wait but let me warn you, if you have an extremely early flight do the check out before other wise you 'll have the same problems I had. Other than these hotel is generally very clean. FREE WIFI must be added to the services for a hotel at thiis level. Location is excellent too.

This is a big hotel, I literally had to walk for 5 mins to get to my room. I had stayed in the Novotel in Paris the the week before and found these rooms to be a little shabby compared. The hotel is located just out of the city centre so a 15 min walk to get into the centre of town. I found it a little expensive for what you get. Not sure I would return.

My faily uses this hotel each time we travel to Munich and recommend it to anyone, particularly if travelling with children, who stay free in parents room. The location is central and the city center with bars and restaurants can be reached by foot.

i stayed there for a two day business trip. the hotel can be easily reached and is in close proximity to downtown, too. the rooms are pretty new refurbished and have everything a business traveller needs. id did not have a chance to eat breakfast, but my colleagues were very pleased with the breakfast buffet.
