Room was smaller than expected, but for the size the bathroom was a good size and you could turn around in the show aways a bonus. Overall the room was good as it is really only a place to sleep.
The other pluses was the breakfast, the hot food was hot and the cold food was cold. Scrambled eggs they'd used real eggs not powdered, fruit juice tasted fresh as did the fruit salad.
Bit of a downer was the fact they were doing refit probably for October fest (as the whole city seemed to be in on it), so work started at about 8:30am and then seemed to go on until almost 8pm. But once finshed I'm sure it will be fantastic.
The only thing that was a big pain was the WiFi signal strength was very poor in my room, I could of done the net surfing and e-mails in the lobby or the corridor, but sometimes you just want to sit down and relax when doing these things.
Otherwise a great place to stay, and right in the train station.

Perfect for our needs
Well done trip advisor for pointing me to this hotel. I stayed here purely after reading reviews. I was not disappointed. It is in an excellent location with the city centre just 10 minutes walk away. Its clean, spacious with good sound proofing. When we arrived we were greeted by 4 apples, and half a bottle of wine with packets of sweets on our pillows - all complimentary. Fantastic.
The breakfast was superb with a huge range. This was however not included in our room price (Expedia).
They also offer a free city pass to use the transport but we had already purachased one at the airport.
A lovely hotel and yes I would go back there.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Checking in and out was speedy.
We enjoyed Munich very much. The City Centre of course, the pretty Englisher Garten which was beautiful in the autumnal colours. A fun visit to the Hofbrauhaus for some beer, sausage and live music. Take the tube to the Olympic Park too which is beautiful and a lovely place to walk around the lake and take in the peace and quiet. Excellent views from the artificial hill in the centre and the tall rotating restaurant.
This hotel is in a great location. I arrived in Munich central station, after my plane flight, not knowing exactly where the hotel was. We were going to get a taxi but just walked around the corner and there was the intercity right infront of us. I was surprised how nice the hotel was inside and we received a free transport pass for munich city when we checked in. Our room was spotless and modern but a bit small but that didn't bother us. The windows were also soundproof and we had air conditioning which was greatly needed. The next morning I couldn't beleive how great the breakfast was and what a huge variety they had. You're never stuck for food when you stay here as there are millions of places to eat right next door in the train station if you're too lazy to go looking for a restaurant. The tourist information office is also right beside the hotel which helped us alot. The marienplatz is only about a 15 minute walk from the hotel or you could just take the subway with your free travel pass. If you want wonderful views of cathedrals and fountains out your window don't stay here, but all that is just a few hundred metres away. I would definitely stay here again, even just for the great breakfast and free travel pass!
After travelling for 10 days, we were very happy to enter a very comfortable, very clean hotel room. The room was also totally soundproof, is very centrally located, and all sorts of public transportation at your doorstep. Oh, and you receive a complimentary pass for public transportation for the duration of your stay. My husbands favourite thing was the fact that we each had our own fluffy duvet on the bed!
Great location, helpful staff
Great location for rail travelers, connected to the station. Views are poor, but the windows are soundproofed for a quiet night. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful, the breakfast offers many choices in an attractive setting. Hallways and lobby are spacious and well decorated.The rooms are fine, if not huge. A great practical choice, within walking distance of Marionplatz or tram connections.
Best hotel in Munich
Great value for money, great rooms and friendly staff. I travel a lot in munich and Intercity hotel Munich is by far the best value for money. Very good location, amazing breakfast buffet and wireless internet. Highly recommendable for every traveler to munich...
Can't beat convenience
Stayed there for the second time this past January for 3 days. Got a great deal on a "winter special". Double room w/o breakfast for 75 Euros. It was an unbeatable price in the heart of Munich.
As stated in the other posts, it is adjacent to the Main train station and we literally walked out our front door in Hamburg and took the Deutsch Bahn direct to our hotel in Munich. Although next to the Hauptbahnhof, security and noise were never an issue. Rooms were clean (although ours was a little "tired"), staff was friendly and the lobby/public areas were well maintained.
The convenience of the being next to the Hauptbahnhof can not be overstated. Even though we elected to pass on the breakfast buffet (13 Euro per person per day), we had several bakeries and other eating establishements right in the Hauptbahnhof or nearby.
Although not the Ritz Carlton, the InterCity hotel is definitely a value worth exploring.
Our family stayed in this hotel for 1 night in October 2004. We wanted to be near the train station as we were leaving for London the next day and wanted to make the most of our time. What a great hotel! It is literally right outside the main train station. Staff were excellent. They were so helpful and so very friendly and they spoke English. Rooms were on the small side which is normal in Europe but had all the amenties you could ask for. The bathrooms were wonderful, very clean and bright with great showers. Beds were the best with comfy down comforters and pillows. The complimentary breakfast was unbelievable and so delicious. You can't believe all the food choices from lox and bagels, to made to order egg dishes, muffins, cereals, and fresh fruit and yogurts. The other great perk is the complimentary travel pass you get upon check in. We traveled all around Munich back and forth on that pass. Some of the area around the train station seemed a little "seedy" with some strip clubs, but we never felt in danger and walked around freely. The train station is open 24 hours with tons of shops and great eating places. Our family would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Comfort and Superb Service
I had stayed at this hotel a number of years ago and returned there for one week in August 2004. The rooms are small but totally efficient with a bathroom which has more than adequate counter space and a shower which is very modern. The airconditioning is very efficient and adequate on the warmest days. The breakfast buffet is a dream with a great choice in foods. Staff are very helpful. The free bus card is an advantage. You can walk to the trains, trams, or the Greyline tour bus departure point. I will stay here again and praise the hotel most highly.
Good hotel with a bonus
I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights in late June 2004. The single room was compact (although it did have a double bed) but it was comfortable. The bathroom did not have a bath tub, just a shower. The hotel is directly adjacent to the main railway station, but the double glazed windows meant it was very quiet. The main railway station is filled with shops and food outlets that appear to be open all day and night (including a book store which had English books and magazines). It is a very short walk to Karlsplatz, and from there an easy walk down a predestrian path to Marienplatz, the heart of the old town.
The resturant in the hotel was reasonable. But the bonus this hotels provides is that it offers its guests a free card that allows free travel on the underground and trams within the main part of Munich for the duration of your stay. I liked Munich and I liked this hotel and I would certainly consider staying there again should I visit Munich again.
Great location, perfectly adequate hotel
I stayed at this hotel for 3 days in March 2004, and several times in earlier years. Its great advantage is its unsurpassed location right in the Munich Hauptbahnhof, with connections to all the major subways; all kinds of 24-hour services and facilities available inside the HBF; and with the main downtown pedestrial zone (Kaufingerstrasse) starting just outside and extending down to the Marianplatz, the heart of the city, a few blocks away. You used to be able to enter the hotel by going down a hallway from inside the station; following a recent remodelling you have to walk out a side entrance and a few steps down the s sidewalk.
But if you're arriving or leaving by train or by air using the S-bahn train from the new airport, its the fastest way to a bed. Beyond that it's a perfectly decent if somewhat limited hotel: Nice lobby, nice restaurant, good breakfast, well kept premises, rooms are quiet, baths are modern. The furnishings in the rooms are somewhat spartan, however; some of the singles are very small in size; there's no exercise room or similar luxury amenities -- and those classic German-style comforters which are the only bedding can be a bit short for 6 foot 2 inch Americans!

Our flight from Munich was about 45 minutes late leaving. The flight was relatively smooth with a few bumps descending into Munich but no screams were heard nor applause on landing.

The Munich preparation is more sour, we were told, so we chose that for something different. It actually tasted like fish ...
