Pension Locarno
Ranked #310 of 388 Hotels in Munich
Reviewed 3 November 2010

I give this a 5 based on what it is...a great place to sleep and shower. The room was clean, relatively spacious by European standards, the toilet and showers were very clean and literally two steps from our door. The pension is extremely centrally located and it's so easy to get around Munich from this spot.

No internet, but there is an internet cafe in the casino a block away. The staff was very helpful, and the breakfast room was very cute (didn't eat breakfast but I enjoyed taking photos there). I would definitely recommend this place - no complaints whatsoever.

Walking distance from the hotel and major site seeing places of our interest like the Hunting Museum, Toys Museum, Siemens Forum Meuseum and Marienplatz made this choice unbeatable. We even walked down to the Hard Rock and the next door Beer Hall!
As for the hotel, no complaints especially with a comfy bed. The shared bathroom was not clean enough to be comfortable when nature called but - it is a shared bathroom.
Needed hot milk for the bay and they were friendly enough to provide the use of the hotel microwave. Free internet but no wifi!
Great place, would recommend and stay again!

This was a rather hurried booking made at the reception after we decided to extend our stay in Munich - but couldn't at our previous hotel. The lady at the desk was extremely courteous and provided us with a room which was basic, but clean. This is at the no frills end, but its location cannot be beaten if you want to be central and at the hub of transportation. You cannot get closer to the main railway station. We probably paid more than the norm because the city was busy with a fair and the end of Oktoberfest. It was very acceptable.

We were very happy with Pension Locarno! Service was friendly and accommodating. Rooms were small, as one would expect for a one-star hotel, especially one so centrally located, but they were clean and comfortable. Common bathroom and shower were clean and stocked, with good pressure and water temperature. The weather was unseasonably hot and humid and they have no airconditioning (almost no one does), but they provided a room fan. We faced the street, which was a little noisy (especially after the World Cup games), but you could get a non-streetside room. Continental breakfast was adequate for 5 Euro. The location could not be better: across the street from the train staion, steps from the subway entrance, a block to the beginning of the pedestrian zone, 10-15 min walk or 2 subway stops to the Frauenkirche, Rathaus, Glockenspiel, Viktualenmarkt and Hofbrauhaus. We had a triple room which was not easy to find in other hotels. We were out and about all day long and so op-ted for a no-frills hotel to provide bed and shower only. All in all I thought it was a great value for 72 Euro a night. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a centrally-located one-star hotel.

We had a wonderful experience staying in Locarno. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful and nice, it is conveniently located next to the train station and close to the center of the city as well. The shared bathroom situation was fine because the toilet and shower are separate rooms, which actually makes a big difference. Most of all, it was CLEAN. If you are on a budget and want to enjoy Munich, definitely consider Pension Locarno.
