Hotel Italia3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Hotel Italia is a clean, tidy hotel that accommodates to guests in Munich. We only stayed two nights and for two nights it did the job. The hotel itself is quite sufficient, however the street that the hotel is located on is in quite a bad area. The location is only a short walk to the main attractions and city which is perfect, it's just the attention that is brought to the street is unwanted. There are strip clubs and gangs all down the street which is such a shame for a good hotel. The hotel does have a wonderful breakfast spread for guests and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Very basic Hotel and not good value for money. We paid £100 per night for our stay, in my opinion it is worth around £30 Breakfast was included which was a pleasant surprise but it was poor quality. Continental style only so no hot food available. There is plenty of everything though so no need to go hungry. Unfortunately our room was close to the stairwell where the cleaners uses as a base, so when she started each morning we were woken.
we grabbed one of the last rooms here for Oktoberfest. We booked 3 beds on hostelworld but when we arrived we were informed that only 2 beds were in the room, and the room was genuinely so tiny you couldn't fit another bed in there. We ended up pushing two twin beds together to make a king for the three of us and they charged us for the third persons towels. The hotel is nice and clean, and offers complimentary breakfast, It's on a kinda sketchy street but a close walk to the nice part of downtown and the Oktoberfest grounds.
where to start to be fair to this hotel ? its in a very bad area , (location to train station and city centre is ideal ) but thats about it !!!! i have never seen a german street so dirty and filthy in my life .the refugees have it in a terrible state ,the intimadation you feel as you have to walk up and down to this hotel is terrible ,definatly no place for children or young women . and thats only in the daylight hours .. night time was horrendous ... having to walk over vomit and urine on the street is bad enough ,but to have to fend off and walk between 10/15 refugees at a time is worse .. the noise and shouts all evening and middle of the night is non stop . terrible dirty shops and food stands plus the sex shops in this area make this area very tacky.. hotel itself is clean and bright ,breakfast is sparce enough only cold meats and fruit ! as for staff been friendly , didnt find then in any way friendly .only spoke to us when we were paying and when we checked out ! and as previous poster said rooms brutal warm and cant open windows due to the noise.. would be a decent hotel to stay if it wasnt in that street ..and staff got training in customer service ! feel sorry for the owner as its the only clean property on that street and whats moved in on that street isnt their fault ! sorry to say i wouldnt recommend this hotel or be back to ever again .
For some obscure inexplicable reason this hotel had a high rating on booking.com. A big mistake to rely on them and not read the reviews here. The hotel is decent, clean, and maintained although beginning to show wear and tear. The toilet seat, shower door, and desk light were broken. The toilet seat and desk light were fixed without my asking for the second night of my stay. The shower door stayed broken. The room was too warm, even though it was October, and there is no climate control, it must be really bad in the summer. The street is full of strip joints and bars and hotels. This hotel entrance is hidden by the next door strip club on one side and the other by a Turkish low class restaurant. The noise from the street was unbelievable. We arrived on a Sunday evening. literally hundreds of men (no women) of middle eastern origin, sitting in the restaurants, coffee houses and bars and milling in the street. Shouting and load music from the bars. The acoustics funnel the noise up from the street and it feels like you are in a room with a loudspeaker. it is impossible to open the window because of the noise and the room felt like a sauna. The noise stopped at about 0400. ie one nights sleep missed. On Monday night the noise was reasonable by comparison. it must be a weekend phenomena. The breakfast was a minimal European style breakfast, and fairly reasonable. The staff is very nice. the receptionist said to me , this is not a place to bring children. In the past I stayed a few streets away and had a totally different experience, quiet etc., it is this specific street. i would definitely not recommend the hotel , but only because of the location and street situation.
Overall, I do not recommend this hotel. This hotel has a decent location geographically- it's located central to Munich and a five minute walk to the HBF station. This was the only positive aspect of the hotel. Initially reading comments regarding the neighborhood being Turkish and the red-light district, I brushed off the negative comments. There is no AC in the room and it can get very hot without the windows open; only problem, everyone is up until 6am in the streets. There are constant sirens a few blocks over and they sound as if they were in your room. The locals keep to themselves, but the streets are beyond dirty. Witnessed a few times people shooting, up presumably heroin, right on the sidewalk, which led me to think that area isn't very safe (but that's from my perspective). Munich police don't mess around though.The rooms were okay size if you just need a place to stay and were pretty clean. The bathroom was okay, but the shower was beyond small and awkwardly shaped. The Wifi is unstable and by that I mean it drops every few minutes and you have to re-type all of the network information- not a strong signal either and we were directly above the lobby. Overall, location and room is good for Oktoberfest, but you won't get any sleep. If you're American, trust me, YOU WON'T GET ANY SLEEP. Staff was friendly and speak decent English. Oh and there is no laundry service as advertised. I was told there is a laundry facility a few blocks down. Didn't try the breakfast, but it seemed popular.
My wife and I are life-long world travelers and consider ourselves rather experienced and worldly -- but this hotel is well below our standards. We drove into downtown Munich during a particularly hot August. We found the Hotel Italia in a busy, rather run-down section of the city. We reluctantly checked in and went up to our room in their tiny, ancient elevator only to find a small and minimalist Motel 6-style room... and without air conditioning. The room temperature was literally like a sauna! With perspiration dripping from our brows, we immediately went online to find other accommodations. Within minutes, we found a lovely room at the Courtyard Marriott for nearly the same price -- and in a much better end of town (the eastside of Munich is far preferable). We also looked at the equally nice Residence Inn (with in-room kitchens) just next door to the Courtyard, but no rooms were available for the length of our entire stay. Sadly, after being in our blazing hot room at the Hotel Italia for only a few minutes, we paid for a one-night stay and checked out immediately. Calling this a fleabag may seem a bit harsh, but the reality of this property is dramatically different than the online photos and some of the positive reviews. If you're a starving student traveling on a tight budget during moderate weather seasons, this hotel might be acceptable as a bare minimum. However, because of both the neighborhood and the inadequate facilities, Hotel Italia would be inappropriate for families and most mature couples. Definitely NOT recommended.
1) fairly central location - about a 15 min walk to Marienplatz 2) right in the heart of what appears to be the Arabic district - therefore the best Donair in town ! 3) older classic downtown german architecture with a full breakfast Enjoy !!
This is a good hotel. There is a really good breakfast and clean cozy rooms. However, the hotel is located in a very noisy Turkish area. It seems to be close to the center, but sleeping with open windows is very difficult. Of course, if you are very tired for a day - then the noise will not interfere. Plus, too small beds and cushions for us.
We visited this hotel and Munich for 3 nights and o was very happy with this hotel. Our room was for three and was on the 6th floor. For me the best thing about the hotel was how amazing the staff were. We were treated very well and they did everything in their power to insure we were comfortable and happy. Our room was much nicer than other rooms in Europe. We had a safe, hair dryer, spacious shower, fan, comfortable soft beds, a phone, lamps, and a mini fridge. The only thing we're had been worried about was the location because of other reviews, but if I come to Bavaria again I will definitely stay here again as the location and noise level did not bother me at all.
