“Basic hotel near the station”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We wanted a hotel next to the station and this was the best in terms of price, distance and reviews by tripadvisor members. We went for it and there was no problem at all. There is nothing great to write about this hotel except that if you are on a budget, you can go for this. We thought it had attached bathroom and toilet, but realised did not. We must have overlooked. The shared toilet and bathroom were very close to the room in the small corridor where we had our room -- I think to be shared by three rooms. It was clean, neat and nice. Room was small and very basic.
Do not expect anything great from here. This is a hotel with very basic facility. If you are on a budget, you can go for this. I am not sure whether you will find it comfortable when with families. You can keep your luggage after checking out... in the corridor. They do not have a luggage room. Just an okay hotel for stay right next to the main railway station.

Wife and three kids arrived in munich late 22:00. After a 8 hr train ride everyone was tired. Straight out the Door and turn left. To the end if the train station you see either the western union
Sign or the locarno sign. Do not be detered by the
entrance.The gentlemen
Had us fill out the info and passport number and bingo we were in the room. Plain, simple, king,single and they had an extra cot for my son.
Not what the family expected but exceeding mine. Bathroom
And shower at the end of the hall. Once apon a time this was standard fare. Kids are sleeping. Extremely clean shower, great water pressure
,largest shower that we had in the past week.WiFi is the bbest so far. Is it noisy.
Had the window open and listened to the sounds of the city. Everyone was sleeping in ten minutes.
I listened for a hour. Radio sstation Munich at night. We
rleft our luggage at the 72 hhr lockers. Gave us a chance to check Munich out.
Sehr gut. Erste klasse.

This pension is located next to the main train station. If you're only staying one night and/or is on a tight budget you can consider staying here. WC and shower are in the corridor. We stayed here on a Saturday to Sunday night and it was hard to shut out the noise from the tram passing next to us and the noisy Müncheners. I had not expected much from a breakfast costing 4.50 € but to be fair it was quite decent for that price.

We were only staying here as a stop over after a flight, so arrived quite late, so didn't require too many facilities. Just as well, as the room was the most basic I've ever stayed in at that price, and it wasn't even en suite. There was a separate shared toilet room and shower room out in the hall.
Basically, from what we experienced against what we paid, we were simply paying for the extremely handy location, and not for the room. If you simply want a bed to sleep in, and a convenient location (right next to the bus station and train station), then this is perfect. But if you want an actual hotel room with the usual facilities, it's not worth half the price.

Pension Locarno is right beside the Central train station in Munich. The hotel is very basic, no tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer available from reception. Rooms small with shared toilet and showers. Breakfast room is small with continental options, except no fresh fruit. Staff friendly, good for a weekend away if you want to spend more time away from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th floor, marginally less noise from the street and trams.

Great price for a budget room which was spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast buffet was very good for a low price. Very easy to find and just across the street from the Hauptbahnhof.

good location. poor service.
I don't recommend.
shower and toilet in the corridor outside of the room.
shockingly bad value for money.
If you thought to go there with a girlfriend or wife, I recommend to look for another hotel.
