Was at this hotel for 1 night and my review as follows: 1) Location: It is about 5 minutes walk from Munich HBF. Just exit at the Burger King side, cross the road, turn left and turn right after a pizza place. It is on the same street as Leonardo Hotel, Mercure. This street is a much quiet street than the next street of C&A - which is a red light district. Street is safe even walking at night. Overall, hotel location is good especially to those catching a train at the HBF. 2) Hotel Outlook, Lobby and Check In: Hotel looks ok from the outside, lobby is spacious too and check in was quite fast. 3) Room 101 A small compact single room with an even smaller bathroom with super small shower stall. Room is neither luxury nor clean as i found few pieces of hair on the pillows. As the shower stall is tiny, i dont recommend this single room to any larger built individuals. Room is dated in my opinion. 4) Wifi Signal is ok. 5) Buffet Breakfast Basic Buffet Spread and quite crowded. I didnt enjoy the breakfast. Overall, if the price is not too expensive and just a night stayover, this hotel is ok but if you are looking for a proper 3 star hotel, better to pick other hotels.

We stayed here for 3 nights during the off travel season in early November and had a really good experience! The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was good and comfortable. It did get hot in the room (as other reviews have stated) so we had to sleep with the window open. The noise was typical city noise at night (light traffic). Bathroom was clean - shower was pretty small and we had some trouble with getting the toilet to stop running. We loved the breakfast spread each morning. That was definitely the highlight of the hotel and something we looked forward to every morning. We took extra bread, hard cheeses and meats, and fruit along as packed lunch when we did a day trip out of Munich. The area around it is not a nice area. I wouldn't let my wife walk around by herself at night kind of an area. We came back after dark every night and had no trouble. There's people around. We stayed here because of the close proximity to the city center (15-20 min walk) and train station (5 min) - worth it. Is it the nicest hotel? No. But it's a great place to lay your head at night with free breakfast and wifi. We were only here to sleep and I'm so glad I found it. If you have super high expectations for a hotel, then you should stay at a $400/night spot that don't offer free breakfast. They have those down the street from here. But if you're on a travel budget and need a clean, convenient, comfortable place to stay for a few nights, this is a great spot.

We really did not know what to expect after reading some of the scathing reviews written on this hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised that it was far from the nightmare that some others have claimed! Our room was large and clean with big, comfy beds and the bathroom was absolutely fine. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful and the breakfast fine and breakfast room never overcrowded. We were allowed to store our baggage free of charge in a locked room for practically the whole day on our departure day (as our flight was late evening), which was a great help.Location wise it was brilliant and only a short walk into the centre of the city and to the central train station. It's not Mayfair granted, but it's certainly not dangerous as some reviewers would suggest, there were always plenty of people around however late we came back to the hotel. Coffee Fellows just across the street serves lovely coffee and fresh bagels (try the 'Fitness' - yum!) my son loved the white hot chocolate too. If I had any criticism it would be the street noise as we were at the front of the hotel only 3 floors up, but the beds were so comfy I would soon drift back to sleep if awoken. For the excellent value this hotel represents I don't think anyone should be grumbling.

The hotel is very close to the train station and within 15 min walk to the city center. The area is not very friendly during nightime... but you can avoid this. The room was confortable, clean, breakfast ok. I find the hotel suitable for a short citu break in the lovely town if Munchen. There are plenty of kebab restaurants nearby that are open till late - if you are hungry after drinking some beers :)

Nice hotel, good location. We stayed at hotel Germania for three nights in January. I really liked this hotel and it felt like a typical German hotel. The room was nice, and the employees at the reception were nice and kind, which is pretty rare if you're a tourist that doesn't speak Germany. The hotel is located near the railway station, so you don't have to take any further transport if you're coming from the Hauptbahnhof. The breakfast was good, nothing to complain about. We left our luggage for a separate luggage room, before our flight left, so we had more time to wander around the city. The baggage room was free, as well as the wifi. The room was kept clean really well and I was surprised, that the hotel offered lots of sightseeing maps, city maps and museum flyers, which helped our vacation. Definately, if I come to München again, I will use this hotel!

We booked online and upon arrival were very disappointed with the quality of the hotel. Very old and outdated. Room was tiny, cold and noisy. No safe or fridge in room. Bathroom was clean enough but very old. Shower head didn’t work properly and the water didn’t drain. Strong smell in the room also. When we politely told the lady on reception we would like to check out as it wasn’t to our liking, they refused to refund our money. Still went elsewhere. Definitely wouldn’t recommend.

Stayed here in January. The rooms are smallish but really cozy and it’s not a problem. They come with a desk and your own bathroom which is nice. The hotel is really accommodating. The concierge was very helpful when I needed help with transportation. Even the cleaning crew was polite. It’s really conveniently located and the breakfast is better than any hotel food I’ve had. I love this place!

Upon arrival I was skeptical we had to wait until our room was being prepared. We traveled from US and our luggage had to be stored until the room was ready with other luggage the security didn’t seem to be very good and was not comfortable with this aspect. I was given a key by hotel staff and there were Numerous people’s luggage unattended In this day and age / that is unacceptable.IMHO Room was dated I did not discount this fact as we were only sleeping here and not here for any amenities. The hotel restaurant was not good - but did provide energy for a morning of walking without hassle of leaving the hotel. The rooms are dated and very noisy at night The general surrounding of the hotel was poor however it is close to the train station Overall I would not return due to a feeling of safety surrounding the hotel Would not recommend for a family This is an okay place to sleep cheap and closeness to transportation and easy walking to many things Munich offers

We stayed here to explore Munich for a few nights. It was great that it was so close to the Munich Hbf. But it was also walking distance to Marienplatz, Karlsplatz (where they have iceskating at christmas time) and also in the other direction, walking distance to the Munich Documentation centre (museum on the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis). The rooms were small but adequate, as are the bathrooms. Check in was quite easy. The room was small but adequate for what we needed. We’re small people and the shower was like a half size shower, so I wouldn’t want to be any bigger. Breakfast was included. It was buffet style and had what we needed. German classics like sausages, cheese, boiled eggs, a selection of bread and bread rolls. Then there was muesli, cereals, white toast etc. On busy mornings they do run out of tables. But they work hard to clean up and prepare as people leave.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights, and it was the worst hotel stay of our 5 week holiday by far. The rooms are old and crappy, and so disgustingly hot and humid that even in the December we had to sleep with the window open. (There were no thermostat controls in our room.) The walls are also incredibly thin, so at all hours of the day and night you could hear every footstep, cough and running tap. The bathroom in our first room (we had to be moved to another room for our last night...) was enormous, but contained the smallest, most awkward shower I have ever used. The shower was also home to a thriving collection of mould. And the toilet wouldn't stop running! By our final night it had given up completely and stopped flushing, thus why we had to be moved to another room. That in itself was also a hideous experience, as the front desk staff lied to us about checking and fixing the toilet several times (we later found out she hadn't even checked it), and only found us another room when she was caught out in the lie. The pillows were also ridiculously uncomfortable and lumpy, and to top it all off, the buffet breakfast was terrible. The hot food wasn't worth touching at all, and the even the cereal and fruit was disappointing. Don't even get me started on the "coffee." The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that the location is great, but considering there are other hotels on the same street, its proximity to the train station is still no excuse to stay here. Do yourself a favour and avoid at all costs.
