Historical Traveler Reviews King's Hotel Center Munich
Location, location, location
Kings hotel is 5 min walk from train station. We booked through the tourist info at the station and got a discount. Lovely hotel, great breakfast, friendly staff and beautiful rooms. Hotel has a great feel from the minute you walk in the door.
Great Central Place to Stay
We had a great 2 day stay the the Kings Center. Within 10 minute walk of Marienplatz and 5 minutes to the Munich Haupbahnhopf (train station). The rooms were clean, and decent in size. The breakfast was good but the selection was a little weak.
The front desk was very helpful for non-german speaking visitors. I noticed a lot of american's staying a the hotel.
I would return.
A Great Stay at King's Center
We stayed six nights in this hotel. We arrived early and were able to check in at no additional cost. The rooms were neat and clean. The decor was very impressive for the price. We had a double, which did consist of two twin beds pushed together but that was not a problem at all. The bed had a huge wooden headboard and the wooden canopy at the ceiling. It was comfortable. It was all very nice. There was a large armoire for bags and coats. For a European hotel room, I considered it spacious. Plenty of room to walk around without bumping into one another. The bathroom was bright and clean. There was no tub, but the shower was roomy.
The staff were helpful and nice. The lobby is always kept neat and staffed. The breakfast room is joined by a short corridor and has a buffet style set up. That was an additional 12E per person. Not a huge array of choices compared to a buffet at home, but all the food was good and fresh. It is a ten minute walk from the Hauptbahnof if you exit near the DB trains toward Arnulfstrasse, go straight across the street, down one block make a left, then a right for one block and then a left at the end and the hotel is on the left. As far as the area, there were no problems. There were no "seedy" shops by King's Center; I only saw one and it was on the next block over. We walked to Stachus and Marienplatz a couple of times and it was only about ten to fifteen minutes. You can take the train, it's about the same amount of time. It's a good location for just about anything you'd want to see or do. Augustiner Keller is a short walk away too. My bf recommends the dunkle!
We were pleasantly surprised all in all by the hotel. Booking over the internet made us a bit leery but it turned out to be a good deal. We'd stay there again if we return to Munich.
A 3 Star Hotel Not to be Missed
Myself and my girlfrield has a short stay in Munich and we decided to stay at Kings Center Hotel because of its location and good price and we think we had made a right decision.
The hotel is located about 5-10 minutes walk from the Central train station. At first its not easy to find. The hotel can be confused with King's Center First Class (which is very close to this hotel). To get to the hotel, you will have to come out from the right exist at the train station and you have to pick the right street at the 4 way intersection before you can get to the hotel. But with a little bit of research beforehand, you should have no problem to get there.
The location of the hotel itself is excellent, its about 15 minutes walk to the famous city hall, the cathedral and the shopping mall. 5-10 minutes walk to the central train station which connects you to the airport as well as everywhere in Europe. There is a tourist information centre located near the train station as well as the bus stop for all the local tours.
There are also internet cafe, post office, supermarket, pub and restaurants (that over late) nearby. If you have enough european food and want to try something different, there is even a Chinese/Japanese Restaurant 2 minutes away.
The room itself is small but its acceptable. (Good enough for 2 people). When I say small, I dont mean tiny. I never feel the room size is inadequate and I have no problem to accomodate my big luggage at the room.
The bed is canopy style (which makes it special) but I dont like the idea of having 2 single beds put together = 1 queen size bed. I dont like the gap in between the beds, no matter how small the gap is. It does comes with a TV.
Bathroom is reasonable, with good hot water and good water pressure. There is no soap and no shampoo but instead you got liquid form soap.
The room has central heating system and its adequate. I dont feel cold when the temperature outside was minus 10 degree Celcius.
Check-in and check out is quick. Flash your passport, they get a copy, fill in the form and its done.
The lift is a bit small and there is only 1 lift. Expect delay if you have to use it at busy hours.

King's Center Hotel is not a 4/5 star hotel but its a hotel that is conveniently located and provided above average standard with a good bargin price. if the price is right - its a good choice to stay there.
Very nice and very affordable
The rooms were very pretty. We didn't think they were too small at all. It was very clean and the staff was beyond friendly. The shower was absolute heaven compared to other hotel showers. The only thing I didn't care for was the liquid soap but that's a very minor detail. We stayed in the front building and my mom and aunt stayed in the rear building. Both rooms were nice. When we imformed the desk on checking in that we didn't have any luggage yet, the woman offered to take my slip from the airline and contact them for us. We went out for awhile and when we came back, there was a message on our TV saying the airline was sending the luggage. We came back again in the afternoon and there it was! So nice! We took several day trips so we appreciated being so close to the train station. Our trip was 11/04.
Our favorite place in Munich
We've been to Munich four times and have stayed at the King's Hotel 3 times. Its rooms, although small (typical for Munich), are very clean and nicely furnished (the canopy beds are a nice touch).
The hotel is especially convenient for people arriving or departing by train. You can easily walk the 3 or so blocks from the main train station to the hotel. It's also within walking distance of the city center -- although I wouldn't say it's in the city center, but about 10-15 minutes away (maybe 8-10 blocks). The walk's a scenic one though...and if you don't want to walk, you can take the subway at the main train station.
The breakfast is always good (simple and traditional) and the staff are always very helpful - all of which eagerly and effortlessly speak english.
The King's Hotel isn't the Ritz, but it's one of the best 3 star hotels I've stayed in in Europe.
Not a big bang for your buck
The lovely rooms are small, but authentic. This hotel does not have air conditioning. It was 95' The rooms have only a central air handling system - that it was not working in our room. Therefore, we had to open the windows over a very busy street. Needless to say, we didn't get any sleep for the three nights we were there due to traffic noise and honking and garbage trucks etc.
The management said perhaps it could be fixed on Monday - we checked in Friday evening and had to go through the weekend hot and bothered. We decided to leave a night early and never received a refund. Management was ineffective and uncaring.
You go King's Hotel!
I highly recommend King's Hotel Center (the one near the train station) if you decide to stay in Munich. We loved Munich so my review might be tainted, but honestly for the price we payed ($90 a night from expedia.com) in August was excellent and the hotel was centrally located, clean, large rooms, bathrooms, and English speaking staff. We walked everywhere! You can walk from the train station to the hotel in 5 minutes. The area is commercial but safe. The center is a 15 minute brisk walk. I will stay here again and recommend that you stay here too!
Nice place to stay
I'm very satisfied of the hotel I chose to stay for my new year eve!
The hotel is 100m from the rail station and at the same time you are very close to the center of munich or to public trasportation. The room was small but confortable, nice and very quiet. I did not have breakfast 'cause there are a lot shops neraby where is cheaper. It's a good choice if you want a warm place to rest after visiting the town.
Lovely, friendly hotel
Stayed at the Kings Hotel, Munich 20/21 April, 2003. A small and intimate hotel. The room although small had everything you could wish for and after all, on a City break how long do you spend in your room? The staff are so friendly and went out of their way to help. Unfortunately on the way to the hotel our suitcase broke, we called into the sister hotel who arranged for a member of staff to take our suitcase on for us. Although it was only around the corner - nothing was too much trouble. The location of this hotel is the best in Munich. A short stroll from the main railway station from where you can get the airport bus.We didn't eat at the hotel but spent quite a lot of time at the bar and were made to feel as if we were the only guests there it was all so personal.I would thoroughly recommend the Kings Hotel - it was superb.Finally, a special mention to Mark. Whilst all the staff are lovely, Mark, an apprentice (although only for another 6 months!) was brilliant.

The airport security panicked and thought this could be part of a terrorist attack and they rang up the police department. The guy on the other end was laughing his ass out. It was the police who had stolen the tree and in order to get it back airport security had to throw a party for the police people.
