Just what you need
Agree with what everyone else says - great location, great price, nice staff, clean room (if a bit on the small side).
They say you get what you pay for, but in the case of the Kings Hotel Center I really feel that I got a whole lot more. I'll be staying here again the next time I come to Munich.
The King's Hotel Center was a very beautiful hotel with extremely small rooms and no closet space. Also the room was hot and had no air conditioning. The housekeeper gave us a fan which helped.
Breakfast was very expensive and not included in the price for our room.
Does the trick...
If you're simply looking for a place to stay during Oktoberfest, I would highly reccommend King's Center Hotel. It's simple, but has good character. The rooms are nice, but not showy. The bar (located in the front lobby area), is a great place to have a drink or three and socialize. The staff is what makes this hotel. They serve you with a smile and takes pride in making you happy during your stay. It's just a small walk from the Munich train station. There are more prestigious hotels in Munich, but if you don't care about the ritz and the glamour, then King's Center definitely does the trick!
Great hotel for a short inexpensive trip to Munich!!
What a great hotel!!
We found it to be just what we needed for our 3 night stay.
We had a double room (which I didn't feel was too small) with a shower room, which was clean, tidy and comfortable.
We bought our room through hotel connect website, rather than direct from the hotel. The price included breakfast, which can be expensive if not included in room price. We payed approx £200 for a double room for 3 nights so we were very pleased.
The breakfast was lovely, it included bread, egg, cheese, meat, salad, cereal, yoghurt, fresh and dried fruit, toast, juice and hot drinks. I am unsure why some previous reviewers have said it is limited as we found it quite delicious.
The location is good, with only a 5 minute walk to the main station. The hotel does not stand out from a distance, so make sure you know where you are going before trying to find it.
I must say we had a fab time in Munich, we found it to be a lovely city where all people seemed so friendly and approachable. I would certainly recommend the hotel and the city to anyone looking for a break from real life.
We visted the Dachau concentration camp which was very educational and eye opening and I would recommend anyone to go and have a walk around and see what really happened. It is now a quiet peaceful place where you can hire a hand held guide tape a walk at your own pace and listen to the information.
We also took a tour at the Munich football stadium which was a little difficult as it was in German (no English tours and we only speak English) but we got to see the changing areas and publicity areas etc. I think it is possible to prebook English tours if there is quite a lot of people going.
Back to the hotel..
the only bad points were that the safe in our room did not work and when we advised the staff they did not offer to replace it or lock our valuable items else where.
So overall the hotel is a great place to stay, we went in March/April 06 and had a lovely stay. I would go back anytime and recommend to all.
