I would highly recommend this hotel but only if you can get a substantial rate reduction. It's a business hotel at Munich's exhibition centre but if there are no large events taking place, you can get a great deal. I booked through the hotel's own website and stayed 6 nights for an average price of €64 a night. Hotels in Munich tend to be expensive and this one offered very comfortable accommodation at much less than I would have paid for similar in the city centre.
Messestadt West U-Bahn station is right outside the hotel and there's a lift from the platform if you have heavy luggage. The journey into the city centre takes about 20 minutes and the service is very frequent (about every 10 mins). Tickets can be bought at machines in the station or from the hotel reception.
My room in the hotel was large, comfortable and equipped with everything I needed, including coffee & tea making facilities, a minibar, an electronic safe big enough to house my laptop, a large desk with handy power points and nice lighting which created a cosy atmosphere. The bathroom was sparkling and although it didn't have a bath, there was a nice shower cubicle.
Breakfast in the hotel was expensive (€17) but there's a large shopping centre just yards away where a food hall and cafes offer a wide range of options at much more reasonable prices.
Dinner in the hotel restaurant was nice and the staff were friendly and efficient but again, it was too expensive. The shopping centre closes at 8.30pm but a couple of restaurants stay open all evening and offer much better value.
There is a free Internet terminal in the hotel's reception or you can pay for WiFi access in your room. The cost was €5.95 for 30 mins, €12.95 for 2 hours or €29.95 for 24 hours. Although expensive, it's not as bad as some other business hotels I've stayed in.
The hotel staff were helpful and friendly and I felt totally safe as a single traveller. All in all, it made an ideal base for my trip and I would happily return, provided I could get another good deal.
Directions: Just a few yards from Messestadt West U-Bahn station.
