Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Excelsior Munich
Beautiful, clean, stylish, grate
the hotel is grate, best location, subway just in the entrance. loby is fine, wellcome was warm amd helpfull. the room is beautifull and very clean. the bathroom was amazing. brakefest was very good. the vinoteck's food was delisiouse.
we had grate time, will come back !!!
We stayed here for a week and you couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The hotel was spotless. We had a junior suite overlooking the street. The room was gigantic! The bathroom looked like something out of a palace! The restaurant food was yummy!. Breakfast was yummy too!
The subway was just steps away. several good hotels near to sample their bars. The Excelsior is not in what I would call the most interesting area of town but it makes up for it in service and location to Hauptbahnhof!
Excellent hotel great staff
visited the excelsior hotel in the second wek of oct 05 for 3 nights in munich germany.
was most impressed by the hotel in every which way, the staff was excellent the concierge service was above par, and the breakfast and the breakfast room were both to die for and looked forward to the breakfast room every morning.the staff all over the hotel was excellent and the room was superb, did not have a good view otherwise i would have rated the hotel excellent but as of now above average.
will definately stay here again when next in munich.the hotel was also extremely central locationwise.excellent is all i can say.
Stayed at this hotel for 6 days during a conference. It is very centrally located - the central station is literally outside the hotel, there is a massive departmental store right opposite the hotel which is a great place to shop, the hotel is surrounded by cafes and restaurants. My single room was large, very clean and well furnished. Bedding was very comfortable and the bathroom was shining clean and full of amenities. The only downside of staying in Munich in summer is there is no air-con in any hotel or restaurant. But I asked for a fan and it was delivered to me immediately. Another good thing about this hotel is that the mini-bar is included in the price. It was very handy in the hot and humid weather. Breakfast is adequate with lots of choice. Staff is very polite and helpful. I would recomend this hotel and the hotel restaurant and especially the wine but do make sure that u book in advance as it tends to be fully booked most of the nights.
City Centre Quality
Traditional, but not stuffy, hotel perfectly located close to Hauptbahnhof, walking distance to shops.
Friendly, helpful, professsional staff. Room was large, decorated in a traditional style. Package included breakfast and free mini bar.
In house restaurant has a reputation for its winelist and you can sit at the pavement tables and watch the world pass by.
Munich is a lovely city, clean and friendly with plenty of parks.
Excellent location and breakfast
My husband and I spent 3 days and nights in Munich, and made hotel reservations on the fly at the train station tourist office. We wanted something within close walking distance of points of interest in the city, since, having never been there before and only relying on a German phrase book to communicate, we didn't want too much in the way of navigating around Munich.
The Excelsior is rated as 4 stars and cost us around 140 euro a night, and even though we are very budget-minded, found it to be well worth it! The room was gorgeous and the included breakfast provided traditional German meats, cheeses, musli, and breads, as well as good ol' scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage. They also have a wine bar, which we unfortunately never made it to, due to all our wanderings around town. The hotel is located right on the other side of the trolley bus stops that are in front of the Haupftbonhof (central train station). From the hotel, you can walk along the pedestrian zone (streets closed to car traffic) and work you way within 10 minutes to Marienplatz, where ther famous Glockenspiel is located.
The staff is great--we had many questions about how to get from A to B, and they showed us how to interepret the Metro map, among other things (the Metro and public transport systems are great and uncomplicated to understand, after a little practice). Even afer we moved on to the next city on our itinerary, we were contacted by the hotel staff when they recognized an error they had made in charging us--and on their own refunded us the difference. Whenever we go back to Munich in the future, I think we'd try the Excelsior again!
High standards, great rooms
Excellent location (at the main train station, close to main shopping area and Marienplatz. Big department store just opposite the building), easy to find while arriving with a car and superb huge high-ceilinged room was really a value while travelling with a family. Minibar full of FREE drinks (soft-drinks, juices and beer). Huge and convenient bathroom. Valet parking, EUR 15 per day.
Breakfast (hot buffet) generally good, but no fresh vegetables/salads available. However, if you mention it to a waiter, he can fix some lettuce and tomatoes from the kitchen with no extra charge.
Overall experience of the hotel and service more 5-starish.
Some spice: TV-set, at least in my room, was a bit tiny and somewhat did not respond to the general (high) standard of Excelsior.
A classy hotel
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights Thursday - Saturday. The staff was friendly and professional, and the rooms were very large. I especially liked how the walk-in closet and large bathroom were seperated from the bedroom. There can be some street noise below, but not too much. The windows have outdoor blinds, black-out shades, and heavy curtains. If you like a dark room, this will accommodate. The hotel is situated on the edge of the pedestrian zone with a self-service pay parking lot directly across from the hotel. We would definitely stay here again.
The Hotel Excelsior was an excellent choice for our stay in May, 2003.
It is less than a block from the main train station, on the pedestrian mall, so is very convenient to everything central. The staff were freindly and efficient, and most spoke English quite well. The room was large by European standards and the bathroom huge and newly redone. We booked through one of the discount web sites so we paid substantially less than the advertised price. We highly recommend the Hotel Excelsior.
Friendly staff and centrally located. Rooms are large
and comfortable. Rooms facing the street behind the hotel are rather noisy with streetcars and other traffic operating during the night, Windows are double glazed but that really does not eliminate the noise. I have stayed here four times and plan to go back again this year.

Early start.... And off we headed for Berchtesgaden - then into the special bus (to negotiate the narrow road) up to the tunnel.... Where we walked along to the lift. And what a lift! All brass, large enough to fit a car - and up we went, into the house that was built as a gift for Hitler for his 50th birthday. And which he visited no more than 13 times.... And he never slept there. It was ...
... half hour of sleep. I, however, couldn't. So our cabin mate (a bloke from Brazil studying architecture in Frankfurt) and I set out for a few drinks to hopefully make the seats a little more bearable and the transition to slumber smoother.
We ended up arriving a 6:10 am local time, and headed to the hostel about 500 m away from the station.
I hate to rush to post, but we are headed to Austria momentarily. However, I I have posted lots of new pictures!
I arrived in Munich early evening and despite poor instructions on how to get to the hostel, I managed it without going wrong. This hostel had already won me over, as it had carpet in the corridors!
After checking in amongst the noise of excitable kids (I assume on a school trip) I headed out to see Munich. The Christmas market here was the biggest yet, with it just being one main market rather than several small ones like in Berlin and Dresden.

We decided that we wanted to be a bit more touristy today and go and do some of the rides outside so after a few steins we headed out to check out the rest of the festival, well some of us did others were happy to continue drinking and keep our table.

We continued walking through a plaza, down a series of stairs and down another street. The walk from the subway took about 10 minutes and we could clearly tell we were heading to a festival that celebrated beer because everwhere we looked there were people already drinking beer as they walked towards the gates.
