Courtyard by Marriott Munich City Center
Ranked #93 of 389 Hotels in Munich
Reviewed 19 June 2013

I have a problem with Marriott calling this a Category Six hotel and it being billed as a Four Star hotel. We arrived from Budapest where we stayed in a fabulous Marriott. However, the cost for this Munich Courtyard was more than what we paid in Budapest. The staff is efficient and friendly. The hotel is a bit sparse on amenities, although it does have a nice restaurant and bar area. However, our room did not even have any drawers for putting clothes away and there are no 110V outlets (you will need to supply your own converter).

Now for the issue of location. It is central to the city, with the Marienplatz about a 15 minute stroll away and the train station a few blocks away. However, if you are travelling with a lot of luggage, you will probably have to walk from the train station to the hotel because the cabbies don't want to give up their place in line to drive you a short distance (we had luggage in the cab and the driver removed it when we gave him the address). The train station is also convenient because you can use the Lufthansa Airport bus for 10.5 euros versus 65 to 75 euros for a taxi getting to or from the airport. Why the low overall rating? This hotel is surrounded by beggars, seedy casinos, strip joints, and is basically in the heart of a ghetto. Neither my wife nor I felt safe outside after dark. I have posted a photo of the "view" from our room on the 4th floor.

Room Tip: There are no rooms with "views" at this hotel. Ours had a view from the front of the build...

Myself and my Husband checked in on a Friday night, its just a few minutes walk from the central station and is found easily,
Reception staff where very friendly, check-in was smooth.
Room is clean, had a problem with the TV, offered another room immediately but decided to stay as we are more interested in seeing the sights than catching BBC world or CNBC.
Breakfast has been good, no complaints, Room is cleaned to a good standard, staff are very friendly.
We have had a few drinks in the Bar and service along with quality has been very good, my Husband is fussy with he's drinks and was impressed by how good the cocktails were.
Overhaul we would stay here again, its within easy walking distance and ignore reports of how bad the Red light district is, there are Bars and Erotic Clubs but they are not in your face and you never feel un easy.
Would stay again

Room Tip: Ask for a Courtyard setting as its very quiet

Easy to reach by S-bahn, and walking 10 mins to the station. Eventhough it's not located in the center of the city, but it's still very convenient to get there. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. However, the shower could have had a door or something to prevent the water gets everywhere.

Very conveniently located. The staff, especially the manager provided excellent customer service. The rooms were quite spacious and very clean (regular Marriott quality). Breakfast was quite a large spread with any choice you could think of.

The Courtyard is a very nice hotel. Rooms are similar to US Courtyards and the lobby and restaurant area are much nicer. Our room had a very comfortable king bed, plenty of closet space and bathroom with shower. It was clean, modern and had a TV with several channels although we watched CNN for the most part. The staff is very friendly, pleasant and helpful. You could not ask for more in a hotel. There is a business center in the lobby with desktop PC's and a printer. Location of the hotel is 18 minutes walking distance to Marienplatz (center of old town) and 25 minutes to the Hofbrauhaus at a reasonable pace. It is a great location to explore Munich. I have seen some reviews where individuals were concerned about the location. There are a couple of casinos and "Erotik" shops in the area. Every ethnic group and country you can think of is represented on the streets. There are also many hotels and tourists, Porsches, Mercedes, Ferraris and Audis parked in the same area. We didn't stay out past dark but never felt concerned about walking from the hotel to the city center.

We stayed 3 nights here. The hotel itself is very clean and well-maintained, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. If you're an American in Munich, you'll feel right at home here. The hotel offers free wifi in the lobby, but charges for wifi (or wired internet) in the rooms. The neighborhood here is a mixed bag. The immediate area is not all that great, with a surprising number of street beggars. However, it is very close to the Hauptbahnhof (main train station) and extremely convenient to the U-Bahn and S-Bahn, and a very short walk from the Marienplatz, Maximillianstrasse, and Oktoberfest grounds. There are a number of decent restaurants within a short distance, including the excellent Augustiner Braustuberl as well as the somewhat-overrated Hofbrauhaus.
