My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in December, during the Christmas Market season.
We chose the hotel as it was close to the main train station and Marienplatz (historical town centre). And it was really close! It is only 5-10 minutes' walk from the train and U-bahn Station (great when coming from and going to the Airport) and about 10-15 minutes' walk from the town centre.
As some people have said, the area may look a bit out-there, but it is not. Yes, there are Turkish take-aways, and yes, there are a few strip-clubs, but the area was safe to walk around and stay in, and it was also very quiet. A few minutes' walk and you get to shops, restaurant and more well-know take-aways (McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut).
The hotel itself is modern and well decorated. Our room was on the 4th floor and was spacious and always warm, which was really appreciated during the very cold December weather in Munich. It was clean, comfortable and featured what anyone would expect: flat screen TV (with English, French, Spanish speaking channels), bathroom with shower and bath, desk and tea/coffee making facilities. We really appreciated the little gesture on arrival: the accomodation staff had placed Christmas Chocolates on our pillow, that was lovely!
The room also has a minibar, with really cheap water, soft drinks and beer (all for €1 a bottle); this was really convenient!
The breakfast was really great, one of the best we have had in Germany. The buffet was really varied: great selection of juices, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, bread, pastries/cakes cheese. Really a lot of everything. There were continental choices but also scrambled eggs and cold meats, which was a nice touch. We really loved the "Stolen" (German Christmas cake) they had available in the morning at the buffet.
The hotel was really lovely and the staff was professional and helpful.
We cannot fault this hotel, and if coming back to Munich, this is definitely going to be our first choice!
