TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Metropol Munich
The hotel is fairly well located: a very short walk to the train station, 5-10 minutes from the start of Munich's main pedestrian thoroughfare, and a 10-15 minute walk to Marienplatz. They offer parking on-site and there is also street parking (which needs to be paid for most of the week). The rooms were fairly well appointed, with wonderful iPod/iPhone speakers, big beds, a coffee maker, and international TV. The bathroom is a bit small and there isn't a bathtub, but it is still a pleasant enough space. The breakfast offered in the morning is fantastic, humongous, and delicious!

... for its young German atmosphere. It was crazy, much more hectic but laid back than Hofbräuhaus so people were stood on tables chanting and singing but the security wasn't bothered - special rules for the Germans I guess. But it was great, when everyone realised we didn't speak German they were being extremely helpful trying to teach us the words to the songs and translating them to English for us - it was a good laugh. Matt and I wondered around the grounds during ...
... who got to the summit, only three returned. The official credit for the climb goes to a rich English aristocrat called Edward Whymper along with another and a Swiss guide, but nobody knows how the other four who died roped together, including a vicar, came to fall. Some say the rope was cut, and it’s in the museum where the whole story is told according to what they know. The impression I got was that the English at that time didn’t come out of it too well.
... this wasn't going to be. I remember sitting in Kew Gardens last year when Mammy talked about going to Barcelona or Munich, and I thought that Munich was just a relatively big town at the foot of the Alps and not worth prioritising. We didn't encounter any problems on the holiday, and got admitted to everything to everything we wanted, which was a big plus. The weather was warm but not impressive, yet even that didn't make a difference. The food was always delicious, even though we ...
... After a 2 hour train ride to get there, we then had to spend a bit over half hour in line to buy a ticket. The ticket was to get inside the castle but you could only do so by going on a 30 minute guided tour. I was happy just to just walk to the castle and get some photos but we ended up getting the ticket which really was a waste of money as the tour was pretty **** and obviously a tourist trap. We bought the ticket at 1pm but the next English guided tour was at 3:30pm so ...
... Fortunately the Hotel Excelsior is a mere 300 metre walk from the station exit which proved a Godsend with two suitcases weighing 23kegs each. As we arrived late afternoon we opted for a casual stroll to the Marienplatz for a wander through Die Markthändler vom Christkindlmarkt in München. The last Saturday night before xmas in amongst thousands of people engaged in last minute shopping....get me a drink! With ...
