      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.

Breaking the silence between me and Lori I started to sing “have a holly jolly Christmas” which she gladly joined in without any hesitation. So with that, we spent the rest of our way back down to town singing Christmas songs. I have to say it really brought our happiness level up! Despite almost

      ... us. The pretzels were amazing by the way. Then there was a live band playing authentic German songs. Mostly drinking songs. Like the song that I'm pretty sure is called Prost (cheers if you remember). Then there was this one song that had a dance so we all stood up on the benches and the girls next to us taught us what to do. That song is still stuck in my head. It was so much fun. Then every 5 minutes someone would stand up on a table and chug the rest of their stein and ...

His most famous castle he created is probably Neuschwanstein, the castle that the Disney emblem is modelled on. Linderhof, the palace we visited on Thursday was the smallest palace but the only one ever completed and also Ludwig's main residence. It was excellent! All of the design details were so elaborate.

The party atmosphere is initially felt by the hundreds of people flocking towards the one spot, flooding along streets dressed in tradition German attire. When you reach the grounds you are confronted by the smell of cinnamon and theme park rides. Typical of the ...

      The next day we got up and had a big cooked breakfast then jumped on the bus and drove to Hofgarten (Austrian alps) all laughing about what had happened the night before - majority of us only had 2-3 hours sleep (if at all).

      As I said this was easily the best night we had whilst being on contiki so I cannot even imagine how much fun Oktoberfest would be! I will definitely be going to that next ...
