Recent guest reviews
I travel to Munich regularly for work and have been hoping to find a dependable, comfortable, and reasonably priced place to stay at more consistently rather than bouncing between different cheap but uncomfortable vs. nice but expensive options. This hotel has a lot going for it -- close to metro, close to supermarket, fridge and kitchen sink in the room, laundry in basement, good wi-fi, etc. -- and was close to becoming my go-to option. However, the management really lost me with sleazy pricing when I wanted to extend my stay. Because of the nature of my work, I often don't know an exact departure date but was assuming I could just extend my stay longer if rooms were available. When I checked with the front desk, they said they would check with a manager, and when I came back late from work, I was told a fairy tale about how suddenly the hotel (which was almost half-empty for the entire time I was there) was about to fill up, and therefore I could only extend if I paid a 30-40% higher nightly rate for the rest of my stay, with full payment up front. I was annoyed but also tired, late for a phone call with my spouse, and not interested in searching for a new place at the last minute, so I finally handed over my credit card rather than doing what I should have done first, which was to go an online travel site and confirm that there were still plenty of rooms available at the earlier cheaper price. When I later went back downstairs and pointed out that I could have just clicked online to get the cheaper rate, which would have saved me money and also cost the hotel the booking premium they would have paid the online travel company as opposed to just extending my room at the same price for me but higher profit for them, the response was essentially "Too bad, we've got your money now." I suppose it's probably not that unusual for hotels that want to skim as much as possible from one-visit tourists, but it's not a way to win regular customers like me. Anyhow, if you are only visiting Munich once and know that your travel plans won't change, this place could be nice, but never EVER try to extend your stay with management at the hotel desk. Just go to an online site to book your additional nights, and then shove the new reservation in their faces and demand to stay in the same room. It's a pity that this is necessary when there could be a win-win relationship for hotels and customers instead, but it will save you from paying a lot of extra money for no reason like I unfortunately did.
Completely unfamiliar with Munich and luckily booked this hotel. Easy 4 block walk to subway stop. Nice to have a refrigerator and cook top in room. Grocery store next door. Sauna too.
The hotel is next to a small grocery store in what appeared to be a quiet residential area. The staff spoke english well and were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious by european standards. It was only a 5 minute walk to the closest U station, Gern, and four stops away from Hauptbahnhof station. My only complaint is that my room was directly above the hotel restaurant and I could clearly hear the patrons dining on the outdoor patio well into the night.
a clean & functional hotel with a good restaurant with a friendly team so certainly good value for money.
Located on a quiet street, quick access to the train. Only complaints are the awful pillows and noise outside all night - there is a cafe and a grocery/market that was right outside our window and it sounded like they were getting deliveries all night! Excellent value for Oktoberfest though. I would stay there again.
The hotel was at a perfect location for us. It was not downtown but close to lots of transit options and then pathways to Nymphenburg and the Olympic park. The front desk staff were always very helpful and the breakfast was delicious and convenient. I also loved that there was a grocery store really close by.
Excellent location and price for Oktoberfest! Overall the room was very clean, but the toilet was kind of gross and they never re-cleaned it after I asked (only asked once).
The "room" was a spotless, well-decorated apartment with a fully-equipped kitchen, living room, work station, and separate bedroom. The kitchen and living room were on the first level, the work station was on the mezzanine, and the bathroom and bedroom were on the third level. (The layout would be unsuitable for someone unable to climb stairs.) My only complaint: the lack of air conditioning during very hot weather.
