Novotel Muenchen City
Travel Blogs from Munich
Today was a lovely day. Unfortunately it did not start too well because we went to the BMW Museum only to find it they are shut on Monday's. Doh! So we had a look around the showcase building with all the latest cars and motorbikes and even saw a motorbike display. A rider was on a dirt bike going up and down the stairs.
After that we …
... down to Rudesheim and got the boat back to Braubach - had a lovely 3hr boat trip looking at all the castles. We eventually left Braubach on Wednesday afternoon after we had to wait for the owner to come back from his lunch break and unlock the elec box so we could get our hook-up cable out.. Which he was in no hurry to do! We then drove down to Karlsruhe and found another site for an over night stay, one ...
... that showed the body piles in the rooms that we were actually standing in.
We toured the main complex of buildings which were used to interrogate prisoners, strips them of their belongings and register them in the camp. Everything has been kept in its original condition and there are still slogans written on the walls that the Nazis put there. One of the most powerful phrases we saw was the infamous 'Arbeit macht frei' the inscription above the door at the entrance ...

We ditched the tour group and found the restaurant the aunties had loved 5 years ago when they were last in Munich. Of course we had the weiner schnitzel and also tried some wine soup (really really good - despite sounding pretty ordinary).. And in one of those small world moments - as the aunties were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Muenchen City Munich
We have just recently returned from a trip to Munich. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone who is visiting Munich.
Great and quiet location un the city centre
We stayed there at the end of October 2005. The hotel is new and very modern if you donīt like the modern equipment look for something else. The location is simply great, just 10 minutes away from the city in a quiet location. If you have a dog you can walk in the park next to the hotel. We didnīt have breakfast as it was 15 EUR per person and we are not big eaters. Instead we had a great sandwich just around the corner. I recommend this hotel and will stay there again.
We stayed June 17-19, 2005 - excellent choice. The location is in a quiet area but very close to the S-Bahn and just two stops from Marienplatz. The hotel room was quiet and dark, pefect for sleeping in after all the sightseeing. The staff was very helpful and friendly!! We would definitely stay again and will recommend this hotel to anyone going to Munich!!
I stayed at Novotel Dorint Munchen City for three nights on Christmas holiday and my stay was definitively pleasant.
Stayed here Dec 2-6 2004. The reception staff speaks very good english. The rooms are large with very high tech ammenities. The beds have fancy lights on the headboards, the bathrooms are ultra modern. Seperate toilet room from rest of bathroom which includes shower, bathtub, and strange sink. The only real problem we had was the shower water pressure and temperature. The temp would go from normal to blazing hot to freezing cold all in a matter of 5 seconds. It would cycle like that every 40 seconds or so. Also the water pressure would cycle between blasting out spurts of water and air to normal flow everytime it was turned on. A little irritating. Told front desk staff about it but nothing was ever done. It appeared that all rooms had opening windows, which gave a nice breeze of freezing air into the room when opened. Had to call everyday to get extra towels and an extra sheet as there was a bottom sheet on the bed but no top sheet. Mini bar was relatively cheap with the first drink or snack on the house. The pool is the tiniest I have ever seen. Nice shoe buffing machines on every floor. Parking was 12 Euro per day and quite convenient. Nearby there is a mall with huge grocery store, nice authentic Bavarian restaurants, and city center is approx 2-3 miles and 7 euro by cab. There were little burlap sacks outside all the doors as we left. Inside were some nuts, an orange, apple and candy. Would definitely stay here again.
Great Modern Sleek Hotel
We stayed here during the opening weekend of Oktoberfest and loved the hotel - very new, modern, 'swanky', reminded me of 'W' hotels. The bathrooms were great as well. All the personnel were friendly and spoke excellent English. It's about a five minute walk to the nearest subway stop and 15-20 minute walk to Marienplatz. Definitely worth a stay.
Great place to stay
We found the hotel to be modern and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and so were rates.
Good choice, especially for a weekend rate
It's situated behind a gas station and looks like a Motel 6 on the outside. But it's what's inside that counts, and here, it's surprisingly modern, stylish, sleek, trendy, etc., and certainly more luxurious than I expected for 65 euros (a weekend rate). Despite the hotel's name, the location isn't exactly "City Center" but it's still just 10-15 minutes away from Marienplatz by subway or 20 minutes on foot. Nice "wellness area" (er, health club) and swanky lobby lounge are bonuses.
We had the pleasure of staying in this hotel early May of 2004 and found it to be a great place to stay. It is a modern hotel (new in April 2004) with large rooms along with a big bathroom which has the luxury of a bathtub and seperate shower cubicle. An other plus has the toilet in its own room seperate from the bathroom. There is also provision for two suitcases (one seams to be the norm) and quiet airconditioning that works well. The breakfast which was included in our package was very good. We would have no hesitation of recommnding this hotel for its location, services and for a pleasant stay.
