I stayed just one night and hosted a family reunion, which went off very well. Everything was just as I would wish, no problems at all. Not cheap, but I got what I paid for, I will stay here again when I next return to Munich.

Exceptional service. Great location. Very short walk to the train station. Short walk to the city center. Close enough to all of the action, but quiet enough to relax. And the bathroom floor was heated.

The hotel and accommodations were wonderful. The room was clean, the staff made us feel as though we were their number one priority and the bar had live music that we were able to enjoy. We would definitely consider staying here again.
