Travel Blogs from Munich
Last night we had a delicious dinner at Lenz, just a short walk from our hotel. Started to cool down a bit, thank goodness. Spent the evening, and into the night, listening to a fabulous, old fashioned, thunderstorm. Haven't experienced one like that in a long time. Lasted well into the early morning hours, but brought a lovely breeze with it. …
We both were up early this morning, and made it to Breakfast before it got crowded. The day before I saw someone eating Muesli cereal in yogurt and decided to try it for breakfast. It was delicious! This time we were sitting at a table next to an American woman a little older than me, and a man a little older than my mom. I thought they were an odd …
I like to forget and ignore my age, but I must be getting old, because sleeping in means sleeping until 6:45. Even after not sleeping for 24 hours, I was up by 7:30 on our first full day in Munich. Even my mother slept in longer than me. I managed to shower and get dressed and for the first time take in the pretty, residential area our hotel was …
It was raining when we arrived in Frankfurt, and I was tired after another sleepless, transatlantic flight. I was told we would not have any problem changing terminals without a boarding pass and would get our new boarding pass at the gate, and I tried to follow all the directions. Still, we ended up on the outside of the terminal without a …
We rose early and went down for breakfast after 8 to a sumptuous feast of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, and a varied array of German bread rolls, ham and cheese, meatballs (!) and other things upon which we dined lavishly, washed down with our pot of German coffee and many glasses of orange juice. We then went back to the room and grabbed our cold …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Great location, very clean and friendly. No a/c, which is apparently pretty common in Munich. One block from Oktoberfest

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Uhland Munich
Nice place, big room
The Hotel Uhland in Munich is a great place. We stayed there for 2 nights the last week of May and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They stored our luggage when we arrived early in the morning and let us check in early when we couldn't stay awake any longer after the long flight from the US. They were helpful with directions and things to do in Munich. We didn't like Munich much but the hotel was good. The room was smokey which was annoying but I don't think you have a choice as everyone in Europe smokes.
This is one of the best family run hotels anywhere! The Uhland staff is friendly, warm and helpful and the front desk is staffed 24-hours a day. Most of our interactions were with Gabriella during the day, and Nikolaus in the evening. They helped us with everything from directions, to concert tickets, and restaurant recommendations. There is a comfortable lounge area with a wonderful coffee machine and computer for internet access. The guest rooms are large and comfortable. Breakfast includes a wonderful array of items and the food was fresh and nutritious. The location of this hotel is superb--a quiet, safe, residential area and only minutes from the center of Munich. Public transportation by bus or u-bahn is steps away from the hotel. We were there in March 2004, but for those wanting to attend Oktoberfest, book this hotel early. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the grounds and I can't imagine a better location for those participating in all the festivities. My husband and I have been to Munich several times before and had a hotel that we really liked, which has since closed. We were disappointed to have to find a new hotel in Munich--now, I can't imagine staying anywhere but the Uhland. I am looking forward to our next trip to Munich.
The Uhland offers a very comfortable, home-away-from-home feeling. The staff were helpful, and the rooms are well-equipmented. The breakfasts are amazing: a huge choice, and all of the highest quality. The in-house internet access is very convenient, and quite reasonably priced. It's only a 10minute walk to the main train station, or just a few minutes to a bus or U-bahn stop. However, you have to carry your luggage up the stairs to the hotel entrance.
We recently traveled to Germany and stayed at the Hotel Uhland. It was our first stop (of three cities) and we were happy to arrive to friendly staff, a very clean room, and the nice lounge (coffee machine and internet). We were impressed with the staff--no matter if it was the middle of the night (jet lag) or middle of the day, they were friendly and helpful. One morning i was up at 4 am on the computer (once again, jet lag), and the man working came over, turned on the coffee maker and made me a cup and brought me an English newspaper...
Nice place good location
We stayed there in December during the Christmas markets. The room was ordinary (although we were told upfront that this was the last room so did not have high expecations). The breakfast was quite OK - the staff were very helpful with our questions.
I traditionally stay in the 2-3 star b&b/hotel range when traveling to Europe...around 100 US dollars plus or minues 20 bucks. I have been to about 5 countries and 8 hotels in this range and I can honestly say that Hotel Uhland was #1. Since I am kind of structured thinker...let me break it down into parts. I am a 30 year old married guy. Letting you know who this opinion is coming from...1) Room: Typical European small room but 100% clean and homey. 2) Hotel Ambience: Beautiful well cared for hotel on a quiet street full of beautiful large houses/mansions. 3) Bathroom-Typical of Europe it is small but quite modern. Plenty of shower pressure and modern design...very nice. 4) Staff-HOLY COW they were helpful...they made my stay and I am traditionally the American that just grabs the map and goes about my business. They were quite interested in talking about the US and giving GREAT recommendations for restuarants and beer halls. All recommendations were winners. They could not have been more helpful. and no I don't work there...I just feel a place that takes care of the customers like that deserves business. and depending on when you go its quite cheap for the comfort. 5) Location: about a 10 minute walk from Marienplatz or the center city.
Trip to Munichen
For a hotel at a reasonable price within the centre of Munich for walking and driving around the area, it is excellent. Rooms very comfortable and the breafkast table is more than adequate. We stayed there initially 2 nights and then went touring aroung Tegensee and the surrounding lakes, and spent the last night at the hotel. Routing to and from the hotel outside of the immediate area is very very efficient.
We stayed her in June, 2003. Very nice staff. Rooms were clean and bathroom was nice. I would stay here again. It's a 5 Euro cab ride from the train station. You can walk if don't have a lot of stuff, but the cab will take 3 minutes. If the price is right, its worth it.
Great Family Run Hotel
We stayed for a week in April 2003. It was just what we were hoping to find. A good value, situated in a residential area, but within 2 blocks of a subway station (providing excellent/quick access to all major attractions) and several local restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, but of course the bathrooms are small by American standards. Free breakfast buffet was a nice addition. We would recommend asking for a room facing Uhland street. We would definitely stay here again.
Very Friendly Hotel
The price is right. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The owners are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They were a great help in finding activities, directions and restaurants. I was traveling with my 11 year old son. He was made to feel very welcome at this hotel. The Uhland is a nice place to stay.
