Travel Blogs from Munich
Je sais que ce blog est au sujet de ma vie à Indy, mais je vous écris de Munich ce soir. Dans le cadre de mes nouvelles fonctions, je dois être ici pour un meeting… Je sais, je sais, je fais dont pitié. Mais croyez-moi, j'aurais choisi un autre timing que celui d’être à moins de 2 semaines d’immigrer aux USA. À cela ne tienne, je …
We arrived at the BMW Welt by friendly taxi driver from Iran. We were instantly greeted and they took our luggage and checked us in at the Owner's Lounge. All you can eat and drink in the lounge. Many people seem to drink beer with breakfast. Odd before you are about to drive your new BMW. Ten percent of all European Deliveries are made to …
... that off with a slice of cake with nutella spread. I did well. I only did this because then I skip on lunch and then we can have dinner. I will happily have beer which will fill me and whatever we decide to have. I always think substantial but the small meals suffice. We decided to sleep in today and wait for Jasmine when she returns then we´ll go out with her to the gardens. I´m cool with it. I don´t mind either way. I can say I´ve ...
... that the family gave many of castles to the state and they were opened as museums 6 weeks after his death.
At the end of the tour we went along to look at the cafe up on he upper floor, the hall it was on ended with an entrance to a balcony, this had views over the entire countryside. We stayed and tool the view in but notice the weather closing in, as we had to go back down the mountain we left the castle, but not without going through the museum shops which seemed to be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Munich Arabellapark Hotel
Well, they lied, but they apologized
I just wanted to update my earlier review to note that the managers of the Bogenhausen and of the Arabella's overall both wrote me to acknowledge my complaints (which I made separately to the Bogenhausen manager by email).
After some negotiation, they agreed to provide me with a free upgrade at the Arabella Grand when I next return and to credit me for the second night of problems during my last stay. Overall, an appropriate settlement. Since I'm in Munich often for business, the free upgrade has real value to me.
My opinion of the Bogenhausen as a place to stay remains unchanged, but they deserve credit for trying to compensate me for the problems.
Good value, positive overall.
Spent three nights at this hotel with my boyfriend just before the new year. Our stay was very pleasant and hassle free.
We were given a wonderful room on the 21st floor with a great view. I read some other reviews complaining about a metal grid on the balcony but ours had a very light nylon one, barely there.
The hotel is not very central but with Munich's excellent public transport this is not a problem.
The pool/spa area is very nice too.
Would recommend it.
Nice but with some problems.
Nice location. You can find anything in the area surrounding the hotel, filled with small shops, supermarket, bakeries and fine small restaurants. The U-Bahn station is close to the hotel and Marienplatz is just four stops away, with only one change of trains in Odeonplatz. The hotel was under remodelation during our stay, so the noise was very uncomfortable and the smell of the plumbing in the bathrooms was horrible. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant is great but very expensive (20 euros per person, plus service and tax). The hotel reception staff is very unfriendly, except mister Tashi, who is a person always willing to help the customer.
I am headed back to Munich in two months and am not staying at the Arabella Sheraton this time around.
First the good... it was cheap at 87 Euro /night on a corparate rate. The rooftop spa is very nice and included with your rate. And that's about the ONLY thing that is included. Plus a one night extension went up 30 Euro for the same crummy room.
Stayed for 5 nights in early Feb '05. No broadband internet in rooms but T-mobile per day access in lobby. Apparently they are upgrading rooms and are half way through the hotel. I stayed in the older room which was nicely simple but not luxurious. Room had balcony that was covered by wire mesh (to prevent jumpers?) which gave it a tenament feel. The breakfast buffet is very nice and extensive. I believe it is 15-20 Euros a day. There is a nice pool/spa area at the top. Hotel is located near train station to downtown which is very handy. I believe it is a 10 euro train to the airport but a 50 euro taxi ride. Also a few shops and restaurants nearby.
Stayed here for a short 4 night break. Standard room was nice, but upgrade to executive room for £50.00 per night was well worth it. The room was outstanding with extremely high levels of decor and facilities. Restaurant was over priced / lacked an 'international menu', and Breakfast was like wise. However dined in the cocktail bar on several nights, excellent value / service and food. Overall a great base for a short break, with access to U-Bahn and S-Bahn all within minutes.
The hotel is ok but they hit you with charges for breakfast $20 per person and phone calls $4 for toll free, etc, etc. I was led to think that breakfast was included, and $4 for a toll free call that did not even get conected. All in all I paid $120 in charges over 2 days I did not expect. A rip off.
Yet another clearly over-priced Sheraton...
This hotel is not to be mixed up with its sister hotel Sheraton Grand across the street. While Grand supposedly is 5 star this one is possibly 3+ (despite a nice pool area). In this very ugly 60's type concrete building the rooms is quite spartan without basics such as safe, fast Internet connection and only one English TV channel (CNN but plenty of German, Spanish, Italian, Turkish and Portuguese ones), a lobby cafe that's a joke, a restaurant totally lacking ambience e t c.
If you do not have to stay in the area - don't go there. If you do have - choose the Sheraton Grand (if money is not a problem) or Hotel Rothoff around the corner instead.
