Sirens Sirens ALL NIGHT LONG!
We managed to get a very good deal on this hotel as a packaged deal with Lufthansa flights from London Heathrow. It says 4 star but I think this is slightly misleading.
The rooms were basic and nothing special. I visited the fitness room as soon as we arrived hoping for a good workout before I hit the beer halls and food stalls. When I arrived into the fitness room it was pretty clear it was an afterthought on the hotels part. It has a stationary bike circa 1975 and an early step machine model that squeaks more than anything else. Not a treadmill in sight. I guess I had high hopes. Do not book this hotel thinking you are getting access to a very good fitness room!
There is one glaring thing that bugged the hell out of us. It was very hot in our room even after the radiators were turned off. This forced us to sleep with the windows open in early March, which can be a bit chilly in Munich. Also, I think the hotel sits on a street that is frequented by emergency services because there were sirens all night long and all morning long. Not sure what this is about but it does not make for peaceful slumber.
Now for the good points! You can't beat it's location. It is 5 minutes from Hoptbanhof(central train station) and super close to the grounds where Oktoberfest are held. The staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms were cleaned very well each day.
It is cheap and cheerful. You get what you pay for on this one.
