Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Blauer Bock Munich

Convenient and friendly


Despite the crazy heat wave, we had an excellent stay here. Rooms were clean, and had everything we needed. The kids would have like a TV, but with all the nearby sights, I didn't miss it. The room was hot due to the unseasonably hot weather. Could have used a fan, but unfortunately the hotel didn't have any. We had our windows open all night, so we got lots of street noice, but that was preferrable to the heat. Probably would have been quiet with windows closed, but not an option in this weather (I can't blame tha hotel for the heat!). Double doors in hallway, so we never heard any other guests. Great location, 3 minute walk to Marienplatz, right by Viktualienmarkt. Lots of great restaurants in both. Nice people at desk, helpful and friendly. Breakfast was included, good and large.

The Thai restaurant next door (Yum2Go) was fantastic - excellent food at a reasonable price. If you like pasta go to Pasta y Basta (a short UBahn ride away). Very inexpensive, but excellent food.

Loved Munich and I would stay here again, but I wouldn't want to be in Munich in a heat wave again, there's really no place to go and cool off.

Great place for a tourist visit


RECOMMENDED. The Blauer Bock has been a Munich institution for a many years. Close to the central Marienplatz, there are numerous restaurants and activities close by. Access to the S- and U-Bahn is also available. Friendly service in the nicely maintained property. Due to the age of the property, each room is unique and vary from single rooms without bath to full rooms. Despite being on a little used street, rooms facing the street encounter noise. There is an interior garden and rooms facing this area are quiet.. Good value for the money and makes for a nice location for a Munich visit.

The good and the bad


The good news is that the staff is very helpful and friendly, the hotel location is great., and the breakfast is excellent. Also, they now accept credit cards for payment. The bad news is that if you get a room facing the street you will not get any sleep because of the noise. In the past few years, they have redeveloped the area and there are now restaurants and outdoor cafes they stay open late. From your room, you can hear everything. Early in the morning, the trucks start passing by and you think they're coming through your room. There is no air conditioning in the hotel so if you're there in warm weather and have to leave your windows open to get a breeze, you're stuck with the noise. Some ceiling fans would help, but there aren't any.

Great Stay


Excellent location. Great service. Close to many beer halls.Great price for Munich

A unique place - great value and very clean


If you like chain hotels, TV and internet connections, then Blauer Bock is not the place for you! However,if simple clean rooms, friendly staff, great location and fantastic prices are your priority, then the Blauer Bock is a good place to stay. The city centre location is fab, but it is still fairly quiet as the street is not busy.

Not luxury, but a lot of charm and nice employees


Quiet sleeping, especially if you ask for a room facing the backyard. Very nice, friendly persons working there. But it is a kind of budget Hotel.

Only thing that puzzled me was they only (at that time) took cash.

Been there twice and will most probably be there again in Febr. 2006 (and I'll write a new review if I remember)

Great Stay


This hotel is a real find. The rooms are comfortable, plenty of room to hang clothes and store luggage. The bathrooms are functional and clean. The breakfast is awesome -- plenty of variety. The staff very friendly and helpful. Location can't be beat - footsteps away from the viktualien market. Subway about a pleasant 10 minute walk away. Don't pass this one up...

Highly Recommended.


If all you need is a great place to crash, and a hearty breakfast buffet, you cannot beat Blauer Bock. It is at an excellent location, just off of Marienplatz. Quiet, safe, clean, nice breakfast (lunch meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, yogurt, rolls, jams, juices, hard-boiled eggs, etc). Very good rates: small room (community bathroom) all for only 35 Euros (including taxes & breakfast!) Staff could have been a bit more helpfully outgoing, but they were friendly enough. From now on, it's Blauer Bock when I go to Munich!

Good, clean hotel. PERFECT location


The Blauer Bock has, perhaps, as good a location as one could have in Munich. It's just about a 5 minute walk from Marienplatz, and is right across the platz from the Viktuelenmarkt.

You'll not find a hotel with a more central and convenient location for three times as much money. I learned of the Bock back in 1985, courtesy information supplied by a German exchange student here in America. I have stayed at the Bock three times since. Always clean, comfortable and quiet. The management doesn't see a lot of foreign tourists, and seems to enjoy having you around.

There are some limited parking spaces available, be sure to ask in advance....AND get there early to claim your spot. Parking around the hotel on the street is tough.

Without hesitation, I recommend staying at the Bock. I"ll never stay anywhere else in Munich.

Hotel Blauer Bock


Spent many months scouring Trip Adviser trying to decide where to stay on our short stay in Munich. Read about the Blauer Bock in travel guides but it listed it as a budget hotel and I was concerned it might be very basic. It was great! Centrally located In Sebastiansplatz close to the Marienplatz between the Stadtmuseum and the Viktualienmarkt and within walking distance of the Hauptbahnhof. OK it is not your 5 star luxury but we had a large room (by European standards) with bathroom (including bath) and as we had a room at the back it was quiet. There was no TV but how much CNN can you take? The stairways, halls etc looked as if they could do with an update but they were doing some renovations while we were there in January so they may well get done shortly. This cost us about 100 Euros per night including breakfast and I know that they had much cheaper rooms if you shared a bathroom etc The staff were friendly so we were really pleasantly surprised. Well worth a try if you are looking for a cheap hotel in a central location!

We lose it laughing, I'm in tears as we continue to talk ****, some girls are too drunk to know who's telling the truth and who's lying. Liam finishes off with "Do you know dolphins? Yeah I train them." I keel over sideways on the bench before he finishes the sentence, as soon as he says "do you know dolphins?" I am in stitches ... who says that? Everyone knows dolphins. Maybe you had to be there and four steins down but ...

We made it just in time to run and find dirndls and then get back to our hostel to change and head to Oktoberfest. As soon as Michelle and I got to the dirndl place, a guy came up to me and said "we have nothing for you" I won't lie I was angry and walked away leaving Michelle to find a dirndl on her own. I walked back to the hostel just in time to change in to a dress and we headed to the festival. On the way we stopped back in to the dirndl shop and they had ...
