    Hotel was fine, but rooms very small. Bathrooms were functional, but shower was tiny. Very much like on on an RV. Not sure why folks love this hotel so much. Guess I am just a jaded business traveler and prefer premium hotels even with the kids. The staff was nice, the area nice too. Still, we ended up on the other side of town for most of our tourism.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Laimer Hof Munich

    Excellent hotel


    Having stayed at this hotel for a week we highly recommend it. Our room was comfortable and efficiently cleaned daily. The owners were very friendly and helpful, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. There was also an extensive buffet breakfast in a pleasant environment.

    Although not in the centre of Munich the hotel is near to good and reliable public transport connections which quickly take you to the centre of Munich or other areas such as the Olympic Centre (where you can swim in the 1972 Olympics Pool ). Nearby is the castle Schloss Nymphenburg with its wonderful garden walks and the largest beer garden in Europe, Hirschgarten, complete with deer.

    When we return to Munich we will definitely stay here again.

    Tiny room for the money


    Having read reviews of the Hotel Laimer Hof I was expecting something a little better than we actually got. We were only there for one night but seemed to have got the bargain-basement room - it was tiny, barely enough room to swing a cat, with a very uncomfortable bed. It's a nice location if you don't mind getting public transport into the centre of Munich - we arrived fairly late in the day so decided just to walk along the canal to the Neuhausen area of the city. This is very pleasant and I would certainly recommend the location for non-city types. The staff at the hotel were friendly and the breakfast was pretty good. Perhaps other rooms are much larger, but if you have any amount of luggage at all I wouldn't recommend the hotel as the rooms are simply too small. Had we been staying there longer than one night I would certainly have approached the management about changing rooms.

    Great little hotel


    My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Laimer Hof. We loved the neighborhood - quiet with lots of charm, and also convinient to public transportation. The Hirschgarten is close by and one of our favorite spots. The only downside of the hotel is that our room was small. It would have been nice to have a little extra space to sit and read or plan our day. The lobby area had nice places to sit though.

    Excellent Service


    We had 2 nice, clean rooms at the Laimer Hof - one a bit small and the other quite large. There is no air conditioning but we were given fans - somewhat helpful in the humid heat of late June. The best part of this hotel is its service -- the owners are very accomodative (we arrived at 10am and they were quick to see that our rooms were made up) and they made sure we had directions and ideas on places to go. Schloss Nymphenburg is 5 minutes away and there is a huge beer garden and restaurants 5 to 10 minutes walk as well. Hop on the local street car and it is about 20 minutes to the main area.

    We also took a Mike's Bikes Tour -- fantastic. Wear your swimsuit for a quick dip during the tour.

    As we traveled to the main city area, I couldn't help but think I would not care to stay in the areas of the places I saw. The Laimer Hof is in a residental area, free parking was just out the front door and easy public transportation (they also will sell you the public transport pass). The friendly staff puts this over the top.

    Personal Touch


    Sebastian and Alexandra, the owners, provided a personal touch not often found in hotel experiences these days. We recently spent three days at the Laimer Hof and enjoyed being treated special. All locals attractions an transportation were throughly described and explained making travel a breeze. We got the most that Munich had to offer by getting great suggestions for meals and tours from the staff. We plan on coming back soon and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

    Mini Castle in residential neighborhood


    This hotel has a very charming exterior and is in a residential district a little out of Munich. The owner described it as the Beverly Hills of Munich, but not sure he is familiar with BH as there is no pretentious glitz. It is simply a nice residential area, pretty close to public transportation, walking distance to both the biggest Biergarten in either Munich or Germany (can't remember), and a fabulous castle, where you could spend at least half a day. Our room was very small and light on the charm, but adequate and clean. We were in a section behind the mini castle-like structure, so maybe it was a new section. There is a cozy, homey feel to the small lobby. Folks were definitely bonding over a World Cup game. The breakfast room and breakfast were nice, and the owner, Sebastian, could not have been more helpful or pleasant. If you want charm, perhaps ask if there is an older section of the hotel.

    A Must Stay!


    We were a family of 11 (couples and singles aged 22 to 50). Sabastian, his wife and their staff were wonderful in helping us coordinate reservations half a world away. The hotel is on par with most of the Bed & Breakfast in the states. Yes, it is a liitle off the beaten path, but only about 300 meters from a bus stop (walking distance with luggage). It is close to many quaint restaurants and a beer garden. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would visit again if in Munich.

    Wonderful hotel, wonderful staff


    We stayed at the Hotel Laimer Hof for two nights. It was a little out of the way, but we researched a place that was easy to get to using the trams and the metro (we had a 36 hour Welcome Card with access to all public transportation). Our room was delightful, as was the staff and the breakfast. We stayed at the Hilton Plaza in Vienna a few days later and we preferred the Hotel Laimer Hof so much more! I can't give this place anymore praise!

    Feel Lucky To Have Stayed There


    Great place to stay, off the beaten path but public transportation is nearby. The laimer hof staff are very helful in any request. Rooms are nice. If we ever went to Munich again it would be our choice. Stayed there during US Thanksgiving weekend. Had a festival going on at city center it was great!

    What a gem!


    What a gem of a hotel. We stayed at the Hotel Laimer Hof in the early fall of 2004. We were a little hesitant about staying so "far" from central Munchen, but what a wonderful surprise the Laimer Hof was. A little tricky to find if you're driving (bring a very detailed map!) but if you aim towards Nymphenburg, you'll be ok. The hotel is not a luxury hotel, but what it lacks in extras, it makes up for in charm and friendly, helpful employees. It's a beautiful building, clean, comfortable and very quiet. The location just can't be beat, in an upscale residential neighborhood just 15 min safe walk from the local train to center city (about 10 min train ride). Also 15 min walk from a large biergarten where you can get all the bierwursts you'd ever want. But best of all: Lovely Numphenburg Castle is just 5 min walk from the hotel. The museums there have slightly longer opening hours than the city ones, to you'll be able to fit in an exptra museum or two. If you dont have the engergy for that, the walk in the castle park after dinner is ...well, if not worth the entire trip, it's still pretty amazing. In one of the side-building right outside the castle complex is a great (and affordable) restaurant . We'd stay at the Laimer Hof again, and we will, if we come that way again.

From the top we could see the rides, huge beer tents, thousands of people, churches on the outskirts of the grounds and could even see into central Munich towards the Glockespeil church and the towers surrounding Marienplatz. Following our ride in the ferris wheel we went for a walk and found one of the ...

    After finishing our complimentary beer that came with our meal, many at our table had noticed that everyone also had beers at the other tables but…theirs were bigger, a lot bigger. We wanted bigger beers too! Perhaps just to get the ...
