Not a bad hotel at all... nice lobby and a location very close to Central Train Station and Oktoberfest grounds, which made it convenient. The room was a little aged or tired in appearance and decor. A structural pillar got in the way at times, and the bathroom, while clean and nice, was pretty small. The crampiness of it, if that's even a word, was enhanced by the angled ceiling. The odd arrangement of the shower/tub made it virtually impossible to shower without spraying water all over the bathroom. Despite being in serious need of upgrade or renovation, the room was quite clean. The bed was firm, and almost cheap feeling, but did nicely nonetheless. The hotel used standard metal door keys, instead of a modern electronic key lockcard system, which meant trudging around trying to keep track of a physical key and fob instead of simply having another card to shove in your wallet. It also meant to had to remember to lock the door when you left, as it was not self-locking. I opened the windows to have some fresh air in, as I couldn't figure out how to make the A/C work... the thermostat appeared to be quite old and it was unclear whether it was for A/C or only for heat. But temps were moderate, so it wasn't really that critical at the time. Open windows meant sound coming from the outside. my windows faced the inner courtyard, and there was very loud whooping and hollering from nearby partiers until wee hours of the morning. Luckily, it didn't really stop me from sleeping, but I simply note this for others who might like quieter conditions. The final annoying issue was that the power went out IMMEDIATELY when you removed the key fob card from the little power activator switch by the door (a power saving feature common to most hotels these days.) That meant I had to somehow get the key into the keyhole to unlock the door (key was required from the inside as well) in darkness... or using any light that might be coming through the window. Since I was departing at 5am, I was in the dark. Overall, I probably wouldn't recommend the hotel as a 1st choice, but it would probably work well in a pinch. BTW, the promised WIFI didn't work while I was there. I don't believe it is accessible from the rooms (not from mine, at least... no signal at all), but it was supposedly usable in the lobby. I got a passcode and could connect to the access-point, but it was not really working with the Internet at that moment, or for the next 30 minutes. There was a laptop machine and printer available for free use in the lobby as an alternate.
I've been a frequent guest at this hotel. To date I think I've stayed there around five times. The hotel shines with friendly service, clean rooms, and it's location is literally across the street from the central train station. While the rooms are quite small and they can be stuffy as well, for a mid-range place to rest the Drei Loewen is up to the task. The pricing is reasonable too which is always attractive. Since most travelers will take advantage of the great transit system that Munich has, it just makes sense to the near the hub of it which is the Hauptbahnhof. You can walk out the door of the hotel and within around 100 feet there is an entrance way with escalator that takes you into the underground walkway to the train/subway station/food shops. If you seek a larger, comfy room for relaxing while lounging the day away, you might seek a hotel with a bit quieter location. Also the rooms are pretty small too so for couples that might be a consideration to look elsewhere. I've always been a single traveler, so the space suits me fine since my days my days in Munich are spent out and about.
I chose this hotel for price and being near the main train station. The street had some casinos and strip bars but seemed safe enough at night. An S-Bahn entrance is nearby too. Bathroom was bright and big, great shower but the second morning the water was only warm. Bathroom had a radiator heater but it was not enough for me, keep the door closed and heat builds up a little. I was there early May, it was cold and rainy outside. BEd was good for one, nice warm blankets. Flat screen TV but the only English was Bloomberg and BBC. It was funny to see Big Bang Theory in GErman tho. I did not use the restaurant, buffet breakfast was 15 Euros. I went to the train station for most of my meals, Yorma, Dean & David, etc. Next to the hotel entrance is Ali Baba, doner and kabobs, nice fod but I'm not crazy about lamb. Water there was only 1.5 Euros. Staff were helpful and polite, but very GErman (formal). One internet laptop in teh lobby, with a printer. Free for guests.
My wife and I had a great stay at the Drei Loewen. The Hotel is ideally located. It is a 5 minute walk from the central train station. If you are in Munich for the Oktoberfest, it is only a 15 minute walk to the Oktoberfest grounds. In fact, many tourist activities are in walking distance - shopping, beer halls and beer gardens, historical sights, various sightseeing opportunities, etc. The bar is very small - just a couple of bar stools in the lobby area. There is a nice seating area though for those wanting a nightcap. The hotel was very very clean. We stayed 7 nights and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The room was great. Like many hotels in central Munich, there is no air conditioning. We stayed in late September and the weather was very pleasant, so the lack of a.c. was no problem. There are casinos and mens clubs nearby. But this did not cause us any concern at all. We never felt unsafe no matter the time of day/night. You will find that casinos and mens dance clubs are just a part of this entire central Munich area, no matter where you stay. If we ever return to Munich, we will stay at the Drei Loewen.
Short but good, Room size could be somewhat lspacier.
The hotel was within walking distance to the Marienplatz and very close to the train & subway system. Avoid the rooms at the rear because of a Youth Hostel Hotel. Very noisy and up all hours. The front desk staff complimented us with a buffet breakfast for our trouble. Overall a good stay, large,clean & comfortable rooms.
Very convenient to the train station and an easy walk to the main shopping and activity district of Munich
we sought a clean safe quiet place to rest. This place fit the bill perfectly, so we decided to return in a few days. The management offered the same price as we had gotten from [...]. A deal.
Great value when compared to rates for hotels at more premier locations in town. Neighborhood reminds of the olden days outside of military bases or some of the side streets of Manhattan...strip clubs, pawn shops, etc... This particulary comment would apply to all hotels located just south of the HBF. Wouldn't recommend stumbling around at night after a few liters of beer. The room was small and clean. Effective for a couple, but way to small for more or mere friends.
The hotel is only a 5 minute walk from the train station. The rooms were very nice and the staff was very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again on our next trip to Munich.
clean, simple, nice rooms. close to the central station but the neighbourhood was not very safe. hotel staff was nice and friendly, willing to help.
Breakfast was good, room was very quiet and easily insulated from the world.... happy with services, too.... would stay there again.
