Flemings Hotel in Schwabing offered a clean room at a great value, with an average location and extra nakedness free of charge. Honestly, before I distract you with any other details, in my opinion, the most important tip for travelers to know is that the shower is in full view of the room (at least the standard room). For many travelers, and I realize not all, this may be difficult to understand because it just doesn't make sense.
I planned a trip to Munich for my girlfriend and wanted to make sure we could stay on foot or public transit most of the time, had effortless access to some good biergartens, and stayed within a budget at or less than 150 euros a night. To be upfront with my bias in fairness to future travelers, I rarely seek hotels with fancy service, large rooms, and lots of amenities such as a pool or gym.
Location: Flemings in Schwabing gets an average vote for location. It is about a 5 minute walk from the Dietlindenstrasse U-bahn, which is convenient for traveling down to the Marienplatz (one of the main squares in Munich), because you do not have to change trains, but still felt just enough 'up-the-road' and outside of the buzz of other parts of the city. No real complaints here, it just did not stand out. We definitely did not feel like we had good eating and drinking options just on our doorstep. Alternatively, the hotel is a short walk to the huge English Garden, which seems like Munich's Central Park. With good weather, this is a pleasant detail, as the Garden has great areas for picnics, sports, and you will find some biergartens too.
Value: Flemings Schwabing came in under budget, so it get a big bonus there. Taking the price into consideration, the location does not seem that bad, but for those travelers that have a little extra padding in their wallets, you could consider a hotel with a better location. For those on a budget, this place may be just right. (Except for the big fat naked caveat I mentioned above, and will describe more)
Cleanliness was excellent and at the typical German-standard. Above average compared to hotels in many other countries.
Shower: If you are looking to spice things up in your relationship, or looking for a fun and awkward surprise for someone special, maybe the standard room with the open shower is for you. I imagine many folks would just laugh it off, or have fun with it, and that's great. Either way, travelers should definitely know what they are getting into here! It's not something to complain about or something to even take away from the hotel, its just different.
Good luck, and enjoy SchwaaaaaaaBING!
