      Historical Traveler Reviews Germania Hotel Munich

      A good hotel for the drinking traveler


      I just returned from Munich's Oktoberfest and my cousins and I spent 4 nights in the Hotel Germania. The highlights are the hotel's close proximity to the festival and the complimentary breakfast. (Although because of non stop partying we only made it to breakfast once. It was hard to get there before 10am.) The breakfast bar had all the bratwurst you can handle at 8am. The breakfast of champions!

      The lowlights were the shower door in the bathroom and the pillows. The shower door was such a nuisance that I oftened pondered skipping a shower altogether. The pillow did not bother me as much as it did my cousin who had to fold it in quarters in order to feel any benefit. Our rooms ventilation also left something to be desired as the room seemed to be suffocating at night as we slowly filled it with hydrogen sulfide gas.

      You might be asking yourself why I've rated this hotel four stars after the above listed complaints. The reason is it met our needs. We were looking to sleep from 3am until noon and be within walking distance to the festival, the train station and places for good food and drink. This is exactly what this hotel provided. As for the cost. I cannot speak to this since my cousin picked up the tab. (Danke schön!)

      So if you are planning a guys trip to Munich for Oktoberfest you could do worse than the Hotel Germania.

      Hotel was OK


      We stayed there whilst the Oktoberfest was on & this hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the grounds-so that suited us just fine!. The room we had seemed to have been renovated so everything was pretty new but it was quite small. Probably one of (but not the) smallest room we had in Europe-eventhough it was small it was a bit more pratical then some other hotels we stayed at. the breakfast was very nice & most of the staff were friendly - except a lady working in the bar... she wanted to bite everyone's head off! Our room was not at the front of the hotel so we didn't hear noise from the streets but there was a noise at night - not too sure if was from water or heating systems in the building (it would just go on & off throughout the night). overall I can't say it was a bad hotel it was actually ok!

      Nothing that Soap, Water, Paint and New Management won't be able to fix


      The room was decent sized by American standards (large by European), but the carpet was grimy, the walls covered with soot and the lace curtains were so dirty that opening them let loose a shower of dust and left my hands gritty. The bathroom tiles bore scorch marks, and the lampshades were waterstained. All the places I stayed in Germany--no matter how small and remote--were immaculate, rendering the Germania's decrepitude even more shocking.

      To its credit, the Germania's breakfast room was clean, orderly and well run, and served a standard German breakfast (rolls, eggs, cheese, museli, yoghurt, sausage, coffee & juice). The hotel is 2 blocks from the HauptBahnhof, although some surrounding businesses are ...risque--not comfortable or fun to walk by late at night.

      For about the same money, the Best Western is next door, and it appears to at least possess a working vacuum cleaner.

      Dont go there!!


      We were offered a very substandard room-although the hotel is old fashioned it was the obvious lack of cleanliness that caused us to leave immediately and seek accomodation elsewhere.

      Think twice before booking


      This may have been a reasonable hotel in the past but it now needs to be updated and refurbished. The room was OK but the mattress was older than me and I was unable to turn down the heating. The location was good but we paid an extortionate amount per night through Not much choice at breakfast and they ran out of coffee jugs. Investment in this hotel is urgently needed. More 2 star than 3 star

      Great location , but noisy


      We stayed at the Germania during late Sept 2003 during Oktoberfest. The location was great, a block from the train station and walking distance to the Oktoberfest grounds. The neighborhood was safe but a little seedy at night. The hotel is on the corner and our room was right on the main street and the traffic noise at night was pretty bad. The staff was friendly and helpful when asked. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. Room was small as typical for Europe but wasn't bad at all. For Oktoberfest I'd stay near there again for location, but a little too noisy for me on the main street.

      Not great


      The hotel was okay but fairly unclean and rather loud. It needs some updating and does not offer room service.

      Small and good


      I stayed at this hotel in Dec. 2003. It is very near the train station.

      The rooms are small but nice. Public transportation is at the train station. The staff were friendly. This is not the best hotel in Germany, but it is o.k.

      Hotel Germania


      Hotel was reasonably well placed, close to the train station and a short walk into the city centre. Facilites were basic and the rooms were not the most comfortable. The springs stuck out of the matresses and the shower door didn't close properly. You could see that the hotel was a nice hotel that had been let go a bit. The receptionist was very polite and helpful but we would not stay at the hotel again.

We saw the Asam Church, which was built by the Asam brothers to show off their architectural work. Next stop was St. Michael's Church, which is the resting place of King Ludwig II. The last stop of our walking tour was the Frauenkirche, but half of it was under restoration. The ...

We left there because it was so hot and we didn't want any beers so we went out of there, met up with some of the other girls and walked back together. When we got there at the meeting point we saw everyone crowded around and I had no idea what happened then someone said that James and Dan were fighting ...

      After Ireland Mom and I hopped on a plane for Germany. I'd always wanted to go to Germany, I'd seen so many beautiful pictures and heard so many wonderful things about the country. The funny story about our plane ride over was that Mom thought she had to buy these pre-made airplane salads, when she booked our flights months before. So we get on and of course the flight attendant comes only to the two of us to give of our food, for a two hour flight. ...

      What I found interesting was that he said Munich was the one place in Germany where people still wear traditional clothing on a daily basis. At a business meeting it’s likely that half will be in suits and half in Dirndl and Lederhosen and nobody would bat an eyelid, yet turn up like that to a meeting in Berlin and people will assume there is something wrong ...

They were really nice and invited me to have dinner with them, and we hung out until about midnight just chatting. Before they came I was going to experience a bier gartin for dinner, but I would much rather get to know great new people! By the way, I'm extremely impressed with the Germans' English. They all speak it fluently!
