We spent 3 very enjoyable nights here for my husband's 50th birthday at the beginning of April, and would definitely stay here again.
We got the S8 train from the airport to Marienplatz which took @ 35-40 minutes. We walked easily from Marienplatz to the hotel in @ 5 minutes - it is not worth getting a taxi to the hotel as the train is so convenient, and the hotel is in a pedestrianised area anyway.
Check-in was easy. Other reviewers have mentioned that the staff were not very friendly, but I found them very pleasant and welcoming to us. Maybe just a little quiet and shy. Our room was on the 3rd floor, but we did not use the lift as it was tiny - but great for 1 person and a suitcase! The room was as I expected from the photos - very minimalist with lots of stripped wood panelling, which can give the impression of being stark and quite hard. So if luxurious surroundings and soft furnishings are very important to you, this hotel would not suit you. However, all was of good quality and extremely clean. The bathroom was modern and again, really clean, and the bed was comfy. What more could a traveller want?
The location of the hotel is fantastic! It is right in the middle of everything! On the doorstep is the Viktualienmarkt, where we had breakfast every day and wandered amongst the stalls. All the breweries are nearby, which is a very important point for beer lovers! The subway at Marienplatz is 5 minutes away, so access to attractions further afield is very easy. We walked as far as the Englischergarten, and enjoyed a cold beer and currywurst at the cafe/bar in the centre.
We checked out in the morning, and the staff gladly stored our luggage behind the reception, until later. We did not eat at the hotel, but I believe the restaurant gets good reviews.
All in all, the Hotel Am Markt is a little gem in a fabulous location, and I would tell my family and friends to stay there!
