After 7 long days with research I finally made up my mind for where to stay and which hotel to choose for my upcoming Munich weekend in November. I want the room to be trendy or modern, spacious, and in a good & central area of Munich.
CHEAP & BASIC (& TRENDY) HOTELS in Munich
Motel One – Munich Sendlinger Tor
Price: 168 Euro 2 nights
Small (16sqm) stylish room, bargain price-wise, but for a small room like this I’d want to live even more central than by the Sendlinger Tor.
Motel One – Munich Sendlinger Tor
Rilano 24/7 Hotel München City
Price: 198 Euro for 2 nights
Small (20sqm) trendy room, light colors, “close” to Hauptbahnhof.
Angelo Designhotel Munich
Price: 192 Euro for 2 nights (Superior Twin or Double Queen Superior)
Small (19sqm) sterile (either yellow or red themed) no frills room. Not very central. Location: Leuchtenbergring.
Voted one of the trendiest hotels in Germany.
Price: 218 – 398 Euro for 2 nights (Studio or 1 bedroom apartment)
Stay in a central location and don’t sacrifice the space as the studio is 25sqm and the apartment is 33sqm. It is only cleaned once a week so you don’t get the hotel treatment, but you’re not paying for it either.
UPGRADE FOR LESS (Standard vs Deluxe) in Munich
Hotel Eurostars Grand Central
Price: 366 Euro for 2 nights (Junior Suite), although I could find very little information about the Suite on their own website.
Location is either here nor there, close to Hackerbrücke (trade area). If you prefer a central location then Eurostars Book Hotel is an alternative if you want to upgrade for less, but don’t mind to stay in a sterile environment.
DIFFERENT HOTELS in Munich
Design Hotel Stadt Rosenheim
From 218 – 298 Euro for 2 nights
Unique designed rooms in a boutique hotel located near Ostbahnhof. Not the most central choice, but the hotel seems interesting as it is part of ‘Unique Hotels of the World’. The pictures of the rooms both thrilled and depressed me.
Hotel La Maison
Price: From 258-278 Euro for 2 nights
The boutique hotel (La Maison) offers romantic and dark room in the middle of Schwabing (22sqm). I almost booked this room as I really wanted to stay in this area (and sleep in a great room), but ended up not booking it as I don’t feel comfortable with half of the bathroom in the bedroom.
RUNNER-UP HOTELS in Munich
Hotel Le Méridien
Price: From 193 Euro for 2 nights
Hotel Le Méridien has a central location and an OK rating on Trip Advisor. There are two different styled room types in the hotel, and I would not consider anything other than the ‘Plus’ category (Superior Plus; 29sqm, or Deluxe Plus) which has an art theme if chosing this hotel. By looking at the pictures it seems like these rooms are the ‘newest’. There is also a spa at the hotel.
WINNERS/ BEST CHOICES IN HOTELS in Munich
Sofitel Munich Bayerpost
Price: From 350 Euro for 2 nights
The hotel looks stunning, the spacious rooms (classic room is 25sqm) as well, and Hauptbahnhof is only 100 m away.
Price: From 358 Euro for 2 nights
Tempting boutique hotel in a very central location, perfect for a short-time stay(?), I guess I will find out.
Edit: No, I won’t, as I decided to change my dates, and this hotel was not available for my new dates.
Hotel München Palace
Price: From 396 Euro for 2 nights. Does not cost much to upgrade, and I definitely would have.
Rooms look elegant, luxurious and spacious, and there are no cons here except it’s not very central. If I was staying any longer I would stay here.
Edit: I will be staying longer, so I chose this hotel! Read all about it later.
