Travel Blogs from Munich
... day in Germany. A 20 minute walk to the train station in the easily 30 degree heat had us sweating while we waited for our ride. Two and a half hours later and three train changes we were in Munich, Germany. After we were ripped off by a taxi to get to the Mercure Hotel, we were ready to see the city. We caught a tram into the city centre and hopped on a red open top double decker bus for a city tour. Worst €30 we’ve spent yet! ...
... feels like a whole world away. The buildings are very stark. The majority of them have been built since WW2 for obvious reasons. It was bizarre to go from hearing such a fluid language to one that was guttural and harsh.
Munich was very touristy. People were everywhere and everything seemed very commercial. Shop, shop, shop. We wandered about. Saw some cool buildings. Then ...
... to bid Leisel goodbye and attempted to squeeze in another stein at one of the other famous halls, but it turns out we should have kept our booties planted right at that table. The Oktoberfest was crawling with people and all of the other halls were not seating anyone else. The place was jam packed with people, but was orderly as typical of Germans around the world. The intense drunken nightmare was sure to come later on, but we were glad to be safe in our hotel beds by ...
... in the rain. :( Our guide gave us some history on Mad King Ludwig II. He was passionate about theatre, opera and arts. The composer Wagner was his mentor, almost a father figure to him. He built a palace that mirrors Versailles and he also built the Neuschwanstein, that was inspired by an opera by Wagner, so it does feel somewhat magical. We weren't allowed to take pictures inside. The rooms were beautiful, but the most beautiful was ...
... In the dreary state the lot of us were in, we weren't paying a whole lot of attention to the road etc so at about 1am when we stopped at a service station we asked the attendant what country we were in... she replied that we were in Belgium but Germany was about a kilometer down the road! The most unusual sentence to hear at any time of day especially in a hysterical tiredness. We were SO excited!
We arrived in Munich city at about 7am. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Exquisit Hotel Munich
Just returned from a trip to Munich & Salzburg. The Exquisit Hotel was very nice. We booked through Expedia, so they tried to give us the "special rate" room, which was out back in some type of apt. building. We weren't okay w/ that - felt like an alleyway out there. So, they got us into the actual hotel w/ a great room overlooking the street. Very clean, nice & comfortable.
Staff was very helpful. Continental breakfast was great. Very close to the city trams and S-bahn so using those helped to get us across the city. Loved Munich. Great city and so much to see!
Would recommend this hotel.
My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights in December and found the location ideal for the Christmas markets and for the U Bahn, which is practically outside the hotel. Our room was clean and reasonably spacious. We enjoyed the breakfast very much and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. There is no restaurant for evening meals in the hotel but we found plenty of restaurants within walking distance and two especially to be recommended vegetarian ones, Bux and Prince Myshkin. The only slight fault we found was that our room seemed to be the only non smoking room on the floor and that the smell of smoke was around and in the corridor. Also the lobby was smokey but there was a non smoking part in the breakfast room. Unfortunately smoke seems to be a general problem in Germany. We did however thoroughly enjoy our stay and would recommend this hotel.
Location is good - about ten minutes walk to the Marienkirche and centre of Munich, and right next to the tube station and good tram routes. Easy to get to from the airport as well. Despite this, the street on which the hotel is situated is a no through road, so it's quiet. Watch for the bells of the neighbouring church, though! They do switch them off at night...
Great rooms! Wonderful breakfast! Nice people! Hard to beat!
This hotel is an excellent choice for exploring downtown Munich. The rooms are spotlessly clean, modern, comfortable and quiet. The quality and variety of the breakfast buffet is amazing - be sure to try the Muenchener Weiss Wurst. The staff members are courteous, friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient; just a short walk to Sendlinger Tor and within walking distance of many of Munich's most famous attractions. This hotel is an excellent value. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Exquisit Hotel and plan to return the next time we visit Munich.
Exactly what it says on the tin
An utterly splendid little place slightly off the beaten track but still well placed for the city centre and railway station. Superb friendly staff bilingual but also happy to humour you if you're keen to practice your pigeon German. The only fault was the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms which I rather like - otherwise indeed exquisite and great value.
Decent Hotel, Good Location
Good hotel in Munchen that caters to the business traveller. My family and I stayed here last week and enjoyed our stay. It was about a 10 minute walk to Marienplatz and a 10 minute walk to the train station. The breakfast was excellent with a lot of choices--both hot and cold. Our rooms were clean and very spacious. Both rooms had an upstairs loft where the bedroom was. I recommended this hotel if you are looking for 4 star accomodation on a budget.
My husband, two teenaged daughters and I just returned from an absolutely fabulous stay at the Hotel Exquisit. Everyone there was so very helpful in giving us directions where we wanted to go and also suggestions of places that would be fun.
My family of 4 had a suite here in June '04. The room was very clean, spacious and quiet. The breakfast was excellent (maybe the best we ate on our entire trip) and the front desk always went above and beyond our expections.
Great little hotel
We stayed for 2 nights in December '03 having specifically requested a 'Maisonette' after visiting your site. The room was wonderful and the bathrooms not only functional but glamorous.Excellent breakfast, reasonably good buffet meals through the rest of the day. The best things are the location and , of course, the staff - very friendly and professional.They were very busy around Xmas and a little shorthanded,so the only thing we can complain about is that nobody helped with our bags upon arrival ( which we didn't mind but others might ) There was a little present awaiting our 6 year old when we checked in ,the extra bed was very good quality and they were very concerned that she wasn't eating enough - so you can say they are very kid-friendly.We'll come back in a heart beat
When we visit Munich, our priorities are to find a place with a convenient location (very close to a central U-bahn station) and a quiet location. These are sometimes mutually exclusive. Hotel Exquisit manages to fill the bill, though. The hotel is just steps away from the Sendlinger Tor U-bahn station on a very quiet street.During slow times, the hotel may have specail offers, as was the case with us. We ended up in one of their "Maisonette" rooms, which has two levels. The hotel is very modern and clean. They offer an incredible breakfast buffet and the staff is very friendly. We would definitely stay there again.
