    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.

    A-Class Hotel


    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.

    Excellent Excelsior


    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.

    Good Location


    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.

    Munich, What a City!!!

    The city of Munchen or better known to us, Munich, was our destination today. We decided to take the train in as it would have taken us just as long to drive and then we would have had the hassle of finding parking and driving through a city which we were advised to avoid driving in due to its narrow streets and trams. Nathan was more than happy to take the train as this gave him a chance to take in the scenery better, as well as allowing him to sample some fine ales ...

    ... I believe it after seeing this place.

    We took our two hour train ride to catch up on anything and everything. Once we arrived I made sure to romantically sprint through the crowd to hug Hannah. We had some food all together and proceeded to all catch up together. I had my first realization during this time that life continues without me. Hannah began talking about a couple people she hangs out with all the time and I realized I didn't know who they were. That's ...

Now though, I don't want to stay for her, but if I did stay I'd not want anyone but her. There's a difference, extremely important nuances. Could I earn enough money in the U.K. to set myself up properly, to actually save money? Is it worth me going home for a quick cash injection? What the hell do I even want to do? I want ...

    Our stomachs have never been so full, as the various filled rolls, cheeses, pastries and drinks are all of very high quality.

    Today we girls and boys have again gone different paths, as we wanted to spend the day shopping a final time in Germany, so off they went about 10.30am.

    ... and it was beautiful. Unfortunately we did not get to see the butterfly garden inside the Palace because we didn't know it was there and we had to catch one of the last buses. We then got back on the bus and passed by BMW world and Olympiapark but did not get out because we were tired. Then we were back to the hotel to relax until dinner. Our tour guide recommended a biergarten called "Park Cafe" so we headed there for dinner. Near there was a garden called ...
