Great hotel stay, excellent staff, offered upgrade immediately! Very clean and comfortable room. Faces Restaurant was also 5 star calibe! Chilean Sea Bass was superb, my husband had the halibut which was also wonderful!
This hotel was fantastic! We had taken the Lufthansa Airport Bus to the stop next to the Hauptbahnhof, and it was a five-minute walk from there. The check-in staff was extremely friendly (and patient when I insisted on using my rusty German :)), and our room was clean and very comfortable. While the part of town wasn't beautiful (not bad at all, though), it was a short walk to the train station and city center, which was convenient. I generally am kind of skeeved out by hotels because of the horror stories you hear, but I really have no complaints and felt at home here. I would definitely book again.
Munich is a lovely place to visit and this hotel is perfectly located for the city and getting to places outside the city as well. From the airport (Flughafen) you take either the S1 or S8 train which will stop at the main station in Munich (Hauptbahnhof). The hotel is just outside the south exit of the station. Over the 3 days we walked around the city, some of the places we visited were: Marienplatz, Frauenkirche, Hofbräuhaus, Englischer Garten, Munich Residence and Nymphenburg Palace.

Not the most modern and glamorous hotel but very comfortable and clean - cleaning sometimes over zealous. Ideal for city sightseeing - ten minutes to the Rathaus - and the main railway station is one minute away.
Stayed 2 nights after arriving from Prague at Hauptbanhof (main train stn). Location was great for train station, but main Bayerstreasse street to town was somewhat sketchy (didnt' feel unsafe, though). 15-20 minute walk into main city square, Hofbrau Haus. Free morning breakfast was substantial and very good. Front desk staff seemed a bit condescencing toward non-German speakers that we were. Overall, value was good for Munich, but in the future, I would look elsewhere if we were not coming into and going out of Haptbanhof.
Just west of the old town, the area around the main station is crammed with hotels and pedestrian areas filled with shops. Further north is the city's museum district, which is home to the Alte and Neue Pinakothek, the Pinakothek der Moderne, the restored Glypothek, the Museum of Antiquities, and the Lenbachhaus, which exhibits the work of Bavarian painter Franz von Lenbach.
