Across the street were several buildings dedicated to Kaiser William and they now house an art gallery (Haus fer Kunst) and the Bavaria National Museum.A short walk to the east is the Isar river and the Luitpold Bridge. Above the bridge is a Friedens-engel ( an angel of peace) on a column, and I believe, like the tower in Berlin, originally ccelebrated the Prussian victory over the French in ...
... listened to the music. General merrymaking! One thing to note was that whenever someone stood up on a table and began to skull the stein everyone would cheer and encourage the person then go wild if they finished it. At one point it got a bit silly though every minute someone was up. There was one guy who stood up and started to rev up the crowd to get behind him, but he failed to finish. You should have heard to crowd boo him! Hilarious! Two steins later and it was time ...
... we were in Germany and in a bar i thought i better try the local beer, just as i thought just like our beer, but i forced it down and staggered home, singing merrily. Now just need my lederhoses, which by the way you can buy and people do because there were people walking around in them.

Historical Traveler Reviews K+K Hotel am Harras Munich
I have never been so annoyed by a hotel. Upon arrival you quickly learn that having booked your room via the Internet, you fall into what the K & K Hotel Am Harras considers "lowest class". The would rather sell their rooms at a much higher price, but since that is not working at the moment, they dump some of them off via the Internet. The staff was rude. I got stuck with unexpected charges which according to the literature in the room should have been included in the room price. The breakfast was mediocre, which is sad given the high price. The Internet service should be a plus, but the staff was working on it while I was there so it was unavailable for a few hours in the middle of a business day. The location is quite a schlepp too. Should have stuck with a more central location. Two thumbs DOWN!
Great location if you can handle the ride on the subway - a subway stop is located right nearby. The rooms are somewhat small, but must have recently been remodeled. There is free internet access in the lobby - which is a definite plus.
Nice moderately-sized rooms. Great breakfast buffet. Hotel is NOT in the center of Munich. However, it takes only a minute to walk to the subway/U-Bahn station and then a few stops on the train to get to the center of Munich.
Highly recommend Mike's Bike Tour around Munich. Very fun and efficient way to see Munich. Also, Mike's Bike Tour has a day trip to the Newschwanstein castle which is also fantastic for the active traveler.
Next best thing to being at the Center of Town
Located 3 easy U-bahn or S-bahn stops from the attractions of central Munich. Room spacious, quiet, pleasant. Breakfast excellent. Free internet access especially convenient. Staff courteous and helpful. Would gladly stay there again.
Wonderful hotel a bit out of the way
I stayed here for business and pleasure in November 1999. It was new or newly renovated, and the room was quite large. I must have had a suite, and there was a small sitiing area and a separate bedroom. The decor was simple but clean. The room and bathroom were extremely clean. The breakfast buffet was fine, and I think there was some hot food. I don't know the actual location of the hotel, but it was only 1-2 minutes' walk to the U-bahn station. It is a bit out of the way, and there is a limited number of restaurants in the immediate area. However, it is a short U-bahn ride away from the center of Munich. I can't remember the price since I didn't pay, but I recall that it was pretty reasonable.
Not central enough
I am unsure how this is a 4 star hotel...3 at best. The staff is very unfriendly, the rooms are mediocre (although the bathrooms are very big by European standards). It is far from the center plazas and in a more residential area. The breakfast was okay but the service was lacking. We had to beg for coffee every morning and ended up serving ourselves on more than one occasion.
A small hotel with clean, neat, but small rooms. The free internet in loby was great. The hotel resturaunt was only open for breakfast. Very few places to eat near by. Location is fair. You have to take the U for shopping, eating etc. But the price is what makes it above average.
Nice friendly hotel
Very nice hotel, steps away from U-Bahn and S-Bahn. Newly renovated rooms, very good buffet breakfast, hot tea or coffee around the clock, and Internet facilities for guests.
This hotel in the south west of the city centre is ideal as a base to explore. It is literally a minute's walk from the hotel door to the U-Bahn, which will take you easily anywhere in the city. Convenient for buses too, with several passing the front door. Hotel is modern and comfortable, has hot drinks available in the lobby for free, and unlimited internet access in the lobby for hotel residents. Excellent buffet breakfast. Warning : do not drive in Munich unless you absolutely have to. We arrived after dark, with a poor map, and finally located the hotel by pure luck and a massive amount of deduction. Traffic is very heavy at most times. This hotel has underground parking, and I strongly recommend that you put your car there for the duration of the stay. Cheap at the price, at 8 euros a day!
