Comments - Suggestions - Recommendations for Lodging in Munich
Still can't find anything in Munich to your liking? Why not stay in one of the suburbs of Munich or in one of the many small towns outside of Munich and take an S-bahn, U-bahn or train into Munich for the Oktoberfest or for sightseeing. On the below linked page I have listed links to several possibilities in the outlying areas around Munich along with approximate rail travel times to the Munich main train station -

(Intexa2) ...When we arrived by taxi, not knowing anything about the city but wanting to be close to the center of the old city, I was dubious about whether this was a good hotel (it's a 3 star). Turns out it was a great choice. Only a half block from the fountain that is the entrance to the pedestrian zone of shops that leads to the old city center square. Only 3 blocks to the train station and the city tours. They did not have an AC room available when we got there but moved us to one the next day. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Do not be afraid to ask for new room if you don't like the one you get. I made my reservation, at the last minute, via Venere.com after deciding on the hotel and checking several sites for the best price. Wi-Fi free in room, but somewhat weak signal, but usable.

(RJKARR) ...I have stayed a couple of times at the Erika. It's conveniently located between the train station and the Marienplatz, within easy walking distance of both. English is also spoken. It's been a few years since I've stayed there so I can't give you a current rate, but it was inexpensive. It has rooms with bath and some without. I know it has everything from single rooms to at least a triple room, which I had once. There is no parking available, but it does have an elevator to get to the rooms. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Hotel (Garni) Jedermann
Tel - 089/543240 ~ Fax - 089/54324111
(near Oktoberfest grounds)
(Tooooobah) ...My main Hotel in Munich proper is the Jedermann. I've stayed there a couple of times now.... Given the fact that they are located about a seven minute walk away from the Theresienwiese, a ten minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof and there's a street car stop right outside the front door, I don't think you can find a better situated hotel at a better price anywhere in town. The Breakfast Buffet there is fantastic too. All you can eat to boot! ...You can't beat 'em with a stick as far as I'm concerned!
(JESTER1J2D) ...a couple of blocks from the bahnhof, from where you can jump on the bus for city tours. The tram stop is right outside the door, for local transportation, which is great. Nice staff. Great room, fairly large, modern. No view. Free internet access, in the lobby. Parking extra, across the street. Nice frühstück dining room, small bar. Would I stay there again? - sure - liked it...

(Ten minute walk to Hauptbahnhof)
(Cathypen) ...Would definitely recommend Hotel (Garni) Uhland. In nice old neighborhood but close to markets, restaurants. Convenient location, 10-15 minute walk to subway, train station. Excellent reservation communications and efficient English-speaking staff. Great breakfasts included. Reasonable fee Internet access available to guests. Only consideration is our last night there was somewhat warm, and there were no fans or a/c.
(Linda & Todd) ..We recommend the Hotel Uhland in Munich. It's on Uhlandstraße near the Oktoberfest grounds. The owners are very helpful, and our window had a view of the church. With a giant duffle bag on wheels, and a backpack, we were easily able to walk from the train station. Our current guidebooks warned about the area south of the station being iffy, but that was outdated, it had changed to a fine neighborhood. We walked to the Waschsalon (Laundromat) and felt perfectly safe and comfortable.
stayed at the Hotel Uhland and would stay there again...the Oktoberfest was ½ block from the front door
and the MarienPlatz was a 15-20 minute walk with a lot of shops along the way...we parked in back of the hotel
without problems.. the room was comfortable, the breakfast good, and the hosts were very friendly.
(AMWeg) ...Large, airy rooms - ours had a balcony. Friendly, accommodating, English-speaking staff. We loved it here. Short walk to train station and great beer gardens. Very close to Octoberfest grounds. Welcoming breakfast room with tasty fair and a wonderful neighborhood restaurant nearby (recommended by the desk clerk). Very quiet atmosphere on a side street in a residential neighborhood. Off street parking included if you have a rental car.
(Arkgal) ...Very enjoyable and friendly hotel very near the site for Oktoberfest. We stayed during Oktoberfest - close enough to walk, yet not bothered by any of the noise and activity. This hotel is in a mansion of years past on a lovely neighborhood street. Also within walking distance of the Hauptbahnhof - about 15 minute walk. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. Internet access in a sitting room on the main floor. I would recommend and stay here again. Very clean with updated bathrooms and comfortable rooms.
(LOUGEE1043) ...we stayed at the Uhland and really enjoyed the hotel...a pretty building on a quiet residential street..free on-site parking and free loaner bikes for those who are inclined..included a full breakfast.
(Earobey) ...Having flown into Munich we had reserved a room for our first two nights. We found it to be convenient yet quiet. lt truly is a renovated mansion on a short street filled with the same. The same people you see in their website assist you at the hotel. The owners were there on the weekend. Rates are extremely reasonable for beautiful rooms, nicely decorated with lovely drapes and sheers and nice furniture and excellent bath. They have free or very reasonable internet sevices. The breakfast room is quite attractive and has a large selection of items. There are several neighborhood restaurants they recommend and we found both we tried to be excellent. As we were leaving we even noticied an ice machine (the only one we saw in 22 days). We were so pleased our first visit that we emailed them later in our trip and reserved a room for our final night.

(Oldgybe)...Older 4-story hotel near Max Monument and the Isar River. Tram 19 is 1 block and Isatorplatz S-bahn 3 blocks. Most rooms with shower/toilet on floor. Just a few with toilet in-room. Clean and cheap. includes old style rolls and jam with coffee for breakfast. Very limited car parking and very congested in area and hard to find a parking place on the street. Have stayed here 9 years, continue to stay here mostly because of loyalty as they gave me a place to stay during my first Oktoberfest visit. There are more budget places in München, with a better breakfast, but I continue to stay here and do recommend it as a budget stay.

Two blocks from Oktoberfest grounds
Near Poccistraße U-bahn station
(PStuyvsant) ...the "Pension Schmellergarten" is located about two blocks from the fest grounds. I had previously stayed here and was lucky to nab a room by making a reservation back in February. Frau Kuhn remembers me and gives me the same EZ as before... color TV, small balcony, and facilities right outside the door.

(email@example.com) ...We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Laimer Hof. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood near Nymphenburg Palace. It is about a 15 minute walk to the nearest metro stop. The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to answer questions for us. They have a nice breakfast room where they put out a good selection of sliced meats & cheese, breads, cereals and fruit. Just a short walk away is the Hirschgarten; a beautiful beer garden with lots of picnic tables and food stalls.
Hotel am Markt

Email - Hotel-am-Markt.Muenchen@t-online.de
(RJKARR) ...I wanted to stay near the Marienplatz because I didn't want to have to walk far in the cold weather or after dark, yet I couldn't afford to stay in one of the expensive hotels. So I chose to stay at the Hotel Am Markt, which is one-half block from the Marienplatz. You couldn't ask for a more perfect location than this little hotel. The room was really tiny and very weird shaped. I practically had to stand in my luggage to get to the radiator to adjust the heat. But heck, I was in Munich and the room was clean and comfortable, though quite bare bones. Since I arrived earlier than the hotel expected, my room would not be ready for another hour. They showed me where to put my luggage until I could actually check in.

(8 blocks west of train station)
(Capitals321) ...The Hanh is a very nice little hotel just west of the Hauptbahnhof. If you exit the station to the south onto Landsberger street - turn right. The hotel is near the bridge which crosses the railroad tracks to the north. Our room was decorated in traditional bavarian mode (which we loved). Excellent breakfast. Nice staff.
Hotel (Garni) Kriemhild

(Near Nymphenburg palace)
(M7727) ...the Kriemhild was very nice... we had a little trouble finding the place, as we did not have good Munich maps... but people were very kind when we stopped to ask directions. The room I had was rather large - double bed - bedside tables - lamps - extra couch and chair plus table - nice bathroom with stall shower, basin and toilet. ... the breakfast was a regular full buffet, with cereals, cheeses, sausage, everything...there was a small back garden.
Tel - 089/558091 ~ Fax - 089/5503665
(Very short walk to Hauptbahnhof)
(Daka2110) ...The hotel is about a block away from the train station.. We drove and the hotel had inside parking for us (for a price of course)...Our room had a double bed and a "cot type" single bed.

Across street from Hauptbahnhof
(Billmelk) ...we were
very impressed with this hotel, not so much for the ambiance, but for the room size and the unbeatable location
directly across the street from the main train station. Our room (#412) was incredibly quiet, spacious and had
a bathroom the size of our entire room at the hotel we stayed at in Mittenwald. The rooms have soundproof windows,
so train noise is not a problem. Breakfast was included with the room and consisted of the usual German fare; meat,
cheese, bread, jam, cereal, juice and several warm beverages. We've booked this hotel again for a return trip ..because
we'll be traveling by train, and the location is ideal.
(AOConn1) ...My sisters and I stayed at the Hotel Amba in September. I chose it for one really good reason: I couldn't find anything else since we were going for Oktoberfest. While it's defintely not the most picturesque place I've ever stayed, the location (right across the street from the HBH) is very convenient and the hotel has all the amenities you need. We had a triple room with a shower and the full breakfast was very good. I can't remember exactly how much it cost, but it wasn't cheap due to Oktoberfest. My overall impression? Low on charm, high on convenience.
(THELROSE) ...Some of the rooms are very odd shaped, but all very clean and comfortable. The breakfast room was nice with a very good selection. We always walked to Marienplatz from there as we are avid walkers. It's about ½ hour walk. One good thing is that the Panorama Tour office is just a few doors up from the Amba. Very convenient for 1st time visitors to arrive by train, get to hotel, book a tour and then the Hertie Dept. Store on the opposite corner. The bus from the airport stops almost directly across from the hotel.

South of Deutsches Museum between Kolumbusplatz and Rosenheimer Platz
Closest Ubahn stations - Kolumbusplatz and Fraunhoferstraße
(SenSate147) ...Der Hotel Prinz icht wunderbar! We really enjoyed this little hotel just off of Regerplatz near Rosenheimerplatz. The service was flawless, the suite was modern and yet quaint as well looking out onto Poepplestrasse und Hochstrasse, and we just loved it!
An der Hauptfeuerwache 14 (Blumenstrasse 40)
Tel - 089/231880 ~ Fax - 089/2607364
(Mtcjones) ... spent 2 nights in the Acanthus Hotel (indeed charming with a warm, friendly staff). The small hotel is sandwiched between other buildings in the middle of a block on Blumenstrasse, not far from the bahnhof and within easy walking distance of the Marienplatz and other attractions. The u-bahn Sendlinger-Tor is 50 meters away. We stayed in "Alba-Rose" rooms with flowered wallpapers & fabrics, an antique writing desk in one, antique chest in another.. includes an especially nice, large breakfast for such a small hotel. The tiled bathrooms were spotless, small, but adequate; beds comfortable with down pillows and comforters. There is a tiny, broom-closet size elevator which holds two people with two large suitcases. We had to take turns going up. There are less expensive rooms available in the "Rustikana" style--pastel fabrics and modern furniture. There is no restaurant, but a charming bar/breakfast room next to the small lobby. The Acanthus accepts all major credit cards. We plan to stay there the next time we go.
(THELROSE) ... The Acanthus is across the Sendlinger-Tor-Platz, just by Herzog Wilhelm Platz. You come out of the hotel and make a right and go to Sendlinger Straße and in less than a 10 minute walk takes you to Marienplatz. Sendlinger Straße is a very nice shopping area. Was ideal for us. Have never had a nicer breakfast buffet anywhere in Germany.

(just south of train station)
(BANAS WSF) ..Our stay at the Germania was nice. They are a few blocks from the main train staion. Our room happened to face the street and that was our only complaint. Until traffic died down we heard the noise but being tired we really didn't mind so much. The room was clean and nice, breakfast included. They have a garage for parking. The staff was friendly, spoke English and helpful with directions. I would stay there again.

Hotel am Moosfeld
Am Moosfeld 33-41
Tel - 089/429190 ~ Fax - 089/424662
Email - email@example.com
(DWilhem) ...We would like to recommend the Hotel am Moosfeld on the outskirts of Munich. It is in the suburb of Trudering (very near the old airport) near the S5 line with a station on the U2 (at the Am Moosfeld stop) which is about 600 yards away. We have stayed in this Hotel sixteen (16) times since 1987 and have always enjoyed the hospitality of Herr Bredenfeld, the owner. In fact now we are treated as family, not guests, which is a wonderful experience. The hotel is located in a mix of high tech businesses and residential homes and apartments. In fact the part of the street that the Hotel is on is 95% residential. The Hotel has typical clean double and single rooms, a large breakfast room and a small basement restaurant and bar. Herr Bredenfeld built a guest house next to the hotel with large bedrooms, sitting room and full baths. The guest house contains an indoor pool and exercise room/sauna, etc also available to the Hotel guests. Herr Bredenfeld owned a beer garden, which is about 5 miles away, but recently sold it to a wonderful gentleman (directions are supplied by reception). The breakfast spread is bountiful, with a large selection of breads, hot and cold items, etc., and Herr Bredenfeld is always there to greet the guests. We may sound like we work for the Hotel with this glowing report, but we don't. It is such a pleasant place to stay and we usually rent a car and they have plenty of garage parking (charge) and outside parking...
City Partner Adria

(Radicaldeparture) ...I've stayed in the Hotel Adria twice and found it to be a really nice, comfortable stay. It's in the Lehel district so it's nice and quiet, but a quick walk/subway trip to Maximillian Str. and just around the corner from the park. The breakfast is great, no curfew and the staff is very helpful.

It is spotless and the Hotel folks are extremely nice and helpful. The breakfast is wonderful at this Hotel. Great place to stay if you want to be in walking distance of Munich City.

(Steve - Atlanta, GA) ...The Platzl has maybe the best location for a tourist in Munich. It is convenient to everything and has some very good restaurants and pubs all around it. It is also right next to the Hofbrauhaus Beergarden, which makes for an easy trip back to the room! :)

(Fadoinka) ...Very elegant hotel in prime location at Karlsplatz. Lovely rooms with marble bathrooms and all amenities. Very gracious and helpful staff. One of the top restaurants in Munich with lovely views. Gorgeous public areas and a very pretty piano bar. Located about 3-4 blocks from the Hauptbahnhof and around the corner from a pedestrian street with loads of shops and cafes in and around this area. Only a person of "bad humor" would not enjoy this treasure. A top choice!
