Small, clean, comfortable hotel. Great location from the city and train station. Note there are a lot of strip clubs, male entertainment places and backpacker hostels in the area.

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Hotel Muenchen City Center Munich
Abbiamo soggiornato in questo hotel per 4 notti a gennaio e siamo stati davvero bene. Il prezzo che abbiamo pagato era veramente conveniente. Il Mercure è molto vicino alla stazione principale e ai centri commerciali. Le camere sono grandi, ben arredate e confortevoli. Il personale è molto cordiale e disponibile. La colazione al ristorante era eccellente e i cocktail serviti al bar ottimi. Come già detto nella recensione precedente, questo hotel si trova nella stessa strada di alcuni ostelli, ma non abbiamo notato gente rumorosa o indisciplinata. È disponibile la connessione a internet gratuita, il che è un vantaggio per gli utenti, considerato che in un negozio vicino all'ufficio turistico abbiamo pagato 12$ per 15 minuti di connessione.
Hôtel excellent et très avantageux
Je n'arrive pas à penser à une seule chose négative à dire à propos de cet hôtel. La situation est excellente, très proche de la gare principale, et à quelques minutes à pied du quartier touristique de Marienplatz. Il y a beaucoup d'endroits avec de la nourriture à emporter dans le coin et aussi quelques restaurants. L'hôtel a l'air d'avoir été réaménagé récemment et il est magnifique. Les couleurs sont dans les tons rouge cramoisi et moutarde qui rendent l'endroit bien plus chaleureux et accueillant que la plupart des hôtels d'affaires 4 étoiles. Notre chambre était plutôt grande et elle était dotée de tous les équipements que l'on peut attendre d'un hôtel de cette classe (par ex. connexion Internet, coffre-fort facile d'utilisation, téléviseur à écran plat). Notre salle de bain avait même une enceinte pour écouter la télé, donc on pouvait suivre les actualités tout en se délassant dans son bain. Le lit était excessivement confortable et les édredons et les oreillers sont grands et bien douillets (ils proposent même de la literie hypoallergénique). Le petit déjeuner était excellent, avec tous les plats habituels, plus des gaufres à la demande. Le personnel est sympa.
On y a passé 4 nuits en janvier et on était extrêmement satisfait, surtout parce que le tarif qu'on a obtenu par le biais du Mercure (-) n'était vraiment pas cher. L'hôtel est très proche de la station de métro et des centres commerciaux. Les chambres sont grandes, bien décorées et confortables. Le personnel est très sympa et serviable. Le délicieux petit déjeuner est servi dans le restaurant et de bons cocktails sont servis au bar. L'hôtel est sur la même rue que plusieurs auberges, comme le mentionnent certains commentaires, mais je n'ai pas remarqué de personnes agitées ou bruyantes. L'accès libre à Internet est disponible, ce qui est un avantage pour les usagers, car on a dû payer 9 euros pour 15 minutes dans un magasin proche de l'office de tourisme.
Just look at the pictures!
Excellent hotel. Excellent price/quality ratio (we paid 123 € a night, breakfast included). Very good location.
Near the main railway station. 10 minutes on foot from the city centre (15 minutes to Marienplatz). Underground parking available (13 Euro a day for hotel guests). The hotel is close to some youth hostels, but quiet.
Good. Very formal (as you would expect from such a hotel). Just one receptionist was not kind at all to us (the exception that confirms the rule).
Excellent. Beautiful. You'll find exactly what you see in the pictures published in their website (please see mine as well). We had two rooms, one Superior and one Comfort. Both were furnished with great style (modern style, purple and yellow as the main colors) and spotless. The Superior room was much bigger and had a large couch. In both rooms we appreciated in particular: air conditioning, flat TV (when you turn it on, you will see a welcoming message with your name!). The Superior room also had coffee/tea maker. The bathrooms are new and spotless. There are speakers connected to the TV, so you can listen to TV when you are in.
Excellent. We found: many kinds of cheese, ham, wurst, two or more kinds of croissants, potatoes, fried and boiled eggs, bacon, pickles, salmon, and many other cold and hot sorts of food. A cook prepares hot food right in front of you. The only drawback: the breakfast room is pretty small considering the size of the hotel, so it gets crowded easily.
I would definetely stay here again.
Great hotel. Great price
I recently stayed at the Mercure Hotel in Munich city centre and I can honestly say I was very impressed by the experience.
I travelled with my brother and we stayed in a twin room (it was an "Austrian Twin" ie. 2 single beds right next to each other, which didnt bother me but if you're travelling with someone you dont know particularly well, it could be interesting!!). The room was superb, it was spacious and well decorated in a modern style (see picture) with a nice LCD TV with plenty of channels to choose from (not that we watched much) The room's air conditioning was an absolute god send as it was incredibly warm during the night.
The bathroom was luxuriously appointed with a modern walk-in shower and space-aged fittings - even the mirror was heated so it didnt fog up!
The bar was very stylish and, to my utmost surprise, was very resonably priced with a beer being no more expensive than any of the surrounding bars. The service from the bar staff was prompt and curteous, as was that of the reception staff. We were staying in the hotel during the world cup but the bar was always pretty quiet. If you're after a busier night try some of the biergartens. I can particularly recommend the Lowenbrau Biergarten which is only a 5-10 min walk away. The youth hostel next door to the hotel has a very lively and friendly bar.
We didn't sample the food in the restaurant as we went for the the more traditional bavarian dining experience - there are some great eateries around the train station.
My only gripe is that the price of the rooms didnt include breakfast, which was priced at 14 Euros per person!! A little steep methinks!
There is parking conveniently located underneath the hotel, although, it is a public car park but guests do get a (small) discount.
Perhaps one of the best thing about the hotel was the price. I have stayed in similar hotels in London and paid twice as much, notwithstanding the fact that the world cup was on!
Next time I go to Munich I WILL stay in this hotel.
Excellent hotel and great value
I can't think of a bad thing to say about this hotel. Excellent location very close to the main train station and a short walk to the main tourist area of Marienplatz. Lots of takeaway food in the vicinity and a few restaurants too.
The hotel looks like it has been recently refurbished and it looks great. It has lots of sultry crimson and mustard colours which make it feel much more warm and inviting than most 4 star business type hotels.
Our room was quite spacious and had all the usual facilities you would expect from a hotel of this calibre (eg internet connection points, easy to use safe, flat screen TV). Our bathroom even had a speaker through which you could listen to the TV so you can catch up on the news while soaking in the bath tub. The bed was exceedingly comfortable and the quilts and pillows were big and fluffy (they even provide a spare set of non-allergenic bedding).
The breakfast was excellent with all the usuals plus waffles made fresh to order.
Staff were friendly.
Stayed here for 4 nights in January and was extremely happy especially since the rate we received through mercure(-) was so cheap.
Hotel is so close to the main station and shopping centres. Rooms are big, nicely decorated and comfortable. Staff are very friendly and accomodating. Lovely breakfast at the restaurant and nice cocktails in the lounge bar.
This hotel is in the same street as a few hostels as mentioned in previous posts, but didn't notice any noisey, rowdy people.Free internet is also availiable, which is a plus if you use it,as we were charged around $12.00 for 15 minutes at a store near the tourist office.
Lovely modern hotel near train station
I had no reservation and arrived by train very late about 11pm for one night in mid August 2005. The accomodations for family of four was two rooms : one double suite and one twin room both with full baths. I got a great deal because of late arrival of 75 euro ($93) each per night. The rooms were very very nice (4 star) with flat panel TVs, mini bar, marble in bath, plush beds, etc. The hotel was very modern and newly renovated with elevator etc
The hotel is just a block away from train station. We chose this hotel while looking for a hotel recommended from Frommers. Right out of the train station we walked down the street where the hotel was located and noticed a hostel with some loud kids. So we then walked down around the corner and walked up the adjacent street back towards the train station. The adjacent street was crowded with strip joints with neon signs proclaiming girls, girls, girls, etc. We quickly went back to the first street where I noticed the Murcure sign which I recognized as a quality hotel. It was late so the man at the front desk gave me a great deal which we quickly accepted. The hotel is located in the city center about a five minute walk to the old town.
The hotel staff was professional and very helpful. Overall we were very pleased with our choice. It felt like a safe haven near the train station, but was still very close to all the sights. The rhotel and both rooms were beautiful.
Fantastic hotel. Was undergoing some renovations while I was there but this never caused a problem. Staff were very friendly and inviting. Hall ways are a bit tired and rough but the room was fantastic. Very large comfortable bed, great bathroom (shower was fantastic!!) and the added touch of a brand new TFT screen television. Great room rate as well. Location is great - only a few minutes from the Hauptbahnhof and central Munich. Would stay here again.
Stayed Dec. 2004
Stayed here Dec 4 - 6, 2004. It's literally 2 blocks from the Hofbahnhof - so if you are coming from the airport - just take the train in and save $70 US. It's a few train stops from the city center (2) and you can walk there easily as well. It's on the same block as the youth hostel. The plaque on the outside says 4 star - but I'd put it in the 3 star category - it wasn't fancy. Reception was friendly and the room was very clean. There was a heater - but the curtain at the window covered it so the feather bed was my best friend at night. There was a heater in the bathroom too which was a bonus. Overall, I'd say it's fine to stay here, just don't expect any frills and make sure that you get a special rate of about 90 - 100 euros so you feel better about it. You can check the web site for the hotel for specials.

After a couple of hours sleep, early check out, a shuttle ride to the airport and a plane to Germany...we arrived in Munich. We caught a taxi to the hotel - travelling at 180 to 200km along the highway. The day before we flew I started reading new reviews about the "cheap" accommodation I had booked in Munich. Originally I booked cheap and CBD …

Again we were pleasantly surprised by the room, a large enough bathroom even to do a bit of laundry. Other than a spectacular skyline we didn't expect much from Frankfurt. So when we wandered around our neighborhood for dinner we were happy to discover narrow alleys full ...
The bus picked me up from the hostel in Salzburg at about 2pm, and was scheduled to arrive in Munich by 6pm. As I was getting on the bus, I noticed Emma, my friend from school was on the same bus! We had planned to meet up in Munich however didn't realise we would be travelling together. Emma was travelling with her friend Lucy, and we caught up on the bus trip which was nice. We arrived in Munich at around 5.30pm, and after checking in and freshening up we decided to head down ...

We wanted to ask a neighbor who was out with her dog if the neighborhood was safe for us to ...

Now, I'm just killing time before catching my plane to ...
