Hotel Carmen3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Quite a dated hotel but very clean and very friendly staff. Breakfast very good but otherwise needed to eat outside as bar was very rarely open and am not too keen on Indian food. Room was very overpriced for the standard, mainly due to a general lack of room availability in Munich at the time.
Firs impression about this place mess not so good , but after few days our stay in this hotel I discover only 2 negative things . 1) size of the room , is really small 2) very bad noise insulation In the mean time a lot of positive arguments to chose this hotel Low price , good location , good breakfast, friendly personal... and more .
Clean, Nice staff, Incredible breakfast, Close to S Bahn. Staff all spoke english so they did not have to hear my bad deutsch. Great place on a budget. Easy to get to. All around pleasant experience. Highly recommend!
We stayed here with our daughter for 4 nights, whilst visitng family. The hotel is tucked away behind shops/apartments and the car park is pretty secluded. We parked the car for the whole duration of our stay and it was fine. Parking is €9 a night, which was about mid range for Munich. The room was nice and clean.. we had a double bed and a single. The ensuite was nice, but would have been better if it was white ( the grey suite makes it feel a little dated). It would have been nice to have had a fridge as well, as i am allergic to dairy and had to have my own milk, but reception were happy to keep it in a fridge for me so that i could access it for breakfast in the morning. Unlike English hotels, there is no tea/coffee facilities in the room, just bottled water. As it was quite warm there was a fan in our room. Our daughter is very fussy and would only eat the pancakes and on our last morning, they had ran out so they made some especially for her, which was nice. The staff on reception were all friendly and accomdating. Location wise, it was a couple of minutes walk to the U6 Stop ( Harras) and easy to hope on to Marien Platz. If you are travelling in a group, you can get a 3 day travel ticket that covers the U Bahn, S Bahn, Tram and buses for just under €30.. this covers up to 5 people. There is also an Aldi near by, but bear in mind that shops in Germany close at 8pm and aren't open on sundays. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would stay again in the future.
I am a bit sorry about this review... I mean, the hotel is located close a U6 stop (Harras, next to Theresienwiese), is not far away from the city center, offers a good selection of foods for breakfast and free wifi. However, I spent a couple of night there in June and I experienced two of my worst night ever. With no air conditioned (most German hotels don't have it) sleeping there has been a true nightmare. My room was on the roof level, therefore everything was absolutely warm. Bedsheets and pillow were hotter than hell, the bathroom had no window, therefore it was just like a furnace. Last but not least, the small fridge under the TV sent out its heat just like an oven. The only way to escape this hellish situation was turning on a small-but-noisy fun and/or open up a window that pointed towards the front building (it means zero privacy). The room was really really small and its walls were absolutely thin (I could basically hear other guests moving as if they were in my bathroom). The door as well was very thin... On checkout day I came back from breakfast and found my room opened. Luckily nothing has been stolen. Anyway, it could be a good choice if you travel on winter and/or if you have to spend just one night close to the city center at a reasonable price. If you travel on spring/summer and/or if you have to stay there for more nights, well I cannot recommend it at all.
We were a group of 6 couples - they took around an hour to allot our rooms to us at 1pm in the afternoon. Their Internet though free is a little cumbersome to use and needs re entering at frequent intervals. The rooms are clean , fairly large with comfortable beds and decent bathrooms. There is a Lebanese and an Indian restaurant in the hotel complex , both serving good food at fairly reasonable rates. The hotel is walking distance from Haras underground station from where you can get buses and trains to most parts of the city.
Hotel Carmen was nothing amazing, but hard to fault. The location is pretty good, not far from Marienplatz and Munich HBF by S-Bahn/U-Bahn/BOB. Rooms are good for the price. Average size, slightly dated but very clean. If I went back I'd ask for an extra pillow or two. Free breakfast was very good with a broad range of food. Service was reasonable, staff didn't go out of their way to be friendly like some other hotels but were helpful enough when we needed them.
Got there as Munich availabilities were dropping due to upcoming Oktoberfest. The room was tiny and a bit smelly. The beds were a bit better that military ones. The walls and carpet looked old but not necessary dirty. There is (or I could not have found) air conditioning and heating in the room. I have used the window to cool the room until I was cold. There is an Indian restaurant down-stairs where breakfast is served as well. The breakfast is also poor, as the whole hotel, and I have refrained to use dinner there for obvious reasons. As piece of advice: there are better options in the area.
Nice 3 starts hotel. Only 15mins go to the central station by train. The nearest station from the hotel is Harras which only 5 mins walk from the hotel. Room is clean, staff are friendly and breakfast is good. We are going to Munich for Oktoberfest 2016 and we enjoy our trip in Munich and Hotel Carmen.
Modest hotel, old fashioned but well reserved and clean. bathroom is clean and fully equipped. rooms are ok and clean. breakfast is good. people are polite and smiling. not good for disabled people. elevator does not reach all the sections of the hotel. feels like an american motel. generally there is no big space nowhere, but enough to make the basic things in the hotel. you would not love to spend the day in the hotel. if you find a good price get it and don't worry if you are looking for something special this is not the place
