The hotel is not fancy of good looking as you might expect. However the location is great. Walk in 5 minutes into the city centre. Across the hauptbahnhof so easy with your transfer from and to the airport. Friendly staff and it was clean. If you want to sleep quiet. Ask for a room at the back. Its quiet compared...

This is located just opposite the Munich Hapurbahnhof. The check-in is pleasant with the extremely helpful lady at the reception. We were given a room soon after arrival at 10.30 am. The room is old and small. Clean. The toilet has been refurbished lately, and is good. No air-conditioning in the room, just a table fan. It was very warm....

When you enter this hotel you found out that you are in Germany at the first of the last century, the hotel location is perfect right in front of the Munich Hauptbahnhof. The hotel is price convenient. Finally the wifi is horrible in the rooms and no A/C so don't go in the summer.

Well located next to the train station. Rooms are small with no air con which is not very convenient during a hot night. Breakfast was good and they offered a variety of products. WIFI was available, but signal was so weak that I couldn't connect my computer. This is really sad! Parking is available for 15!! Euros. In conclusion, the...

This hotel was convenient to central station, was clean with a relatively new bathroom and comfortable bed. Nevertheless, in hot Munich in July, the small room was very steamy overnight. The doors needed a strong bang to close, so sleep was disturbed by other guests arriving and leaving. Value for money for a short stay if travelling by train.

Pretty much par for what you'd expect from this class hotel. PROS: - Location right across from Main Railway station; - Clean ; - Very helpful staff CONS: - Very small rooms and bathrooms; - The rooms have sterile a "70's hospital room" feel; - One small elevator for for the entire hotel ( better to take stairs); - Some...

At arrival check-in was fast though we didn't get a very warm welcome. The location of the hotel is excellent, it's close to the main attractions on foot and very close to the main station (which soon turned out to be not such a good thing) The room was the worst we've ever seen. It was a twin room but...

The pictures we saw made us think this would be a decent hotel, but the pictures are misleading. We had a room for four that smelled like stinky feet. The hotel is outdated and worn down. It seemed about as clean as you could expect for the condition. There is no AC which isn't terrible unless you are staying during...

We had a good stay in München, and the way from the hotel to city center was very short. It was easy to see that the hotel could use some upgrading, especially the rooms. But we enjoyed staying here. And the breakfast was cheap enough and very good, so we chose to have breakfast at the hotel both days.

The price and location was right...so that was the reason for booking this hotel. It was OK. For sure not my favorite. We were traveling with 4 guests...and the room was very small. There was no AC. We stayed on the 6th floor and the elevator was very small so we didn't use it much. The train station next door...
