The 4 star Best Western Hotel Cristal is a perfect base for either the working or pleasure traveller. This is because its location just down the road from the Central Station means guests can easily access both Munich Airport and the Trade Fair. Its location in the heart of the city makes it perfect for shoppers and sightseers alike, with attractions like the Oktoberfest, the Marienplatz, Pinakothek art galleries (both old and new), the Hofbräuhaus and a host of museums all on its doorstep.
Fans of the colour blue will love the 3 star Hotel Belle Blue. As its name would suggest, blue is the main colour theme across its 30 unique and luxurious guestrooms. In less skilful hands, this idea may have resulted in gaudiness, but the hotel’s expert interior designers ensured that the utmost in good taste and contemporary style remained a priority throughout the hotel. Of course, there is more to this hotel than merely what is inside; it boasts an enviable location in the heart of Munich which also is removed from the noise that such a location normally brings. Hence, while many of the prime attractions of the city are within walking distance, one is still assured a good night’s sleep.
The 2 star Hotel Dolomit is a relaxed affair; you will not find any stuffiness or pretensions here. They know that whether you are here for business or leisure, when you get back to your hotel you just want to chill out, maybe call friends or family back home, and watch some TV or lazily surf the net. The combination of WI-FI, in-room telephone, sound-absorbing windows and satellite television across the hotel’s 37 spacious guestrooms guarantees that all these boxes are ticked.
Budget travellers to Munich should look no further than the A&O München Hackerbrücke. Not only is it just down the road from the bus and main stations, but the Oktoberfest and a host of pubs and nightclubs, such as the Augustiner Biergarten, are just a 10 minute stroll from the hotel. And what is inside the accommodation itself, one might ask? Well, you can make new international friends in the Skyline Terrace Bar downstairs, which boasts a great atmosphere. The en suite guestrooms are cheerful and airy, and are equipped with hair dryers. Not only this, but each has a balcony from where, on clear days, guests can admire the gorgeous Alpine landscape. You are also guaranteed a friendly welcome and efficient service from the multi-lingual staff, who can answer any questions you may have and maybe even book a tour for you via the on site travel agent.
It may well be that you don’t want to stay in a hotel, whether it be for the want of a new experience or to save precious pennies. If this is the case, then maybe a camping ground or a youth hostel is just what you are looking for. These options have a lot to offer, such as a friendly bunch of like minded people from around the world, a great social atmosphere and, in many cases, a communal area where you can hang out and chat with your new friends. Care is taken to ensure they are near public transport (what’s the point in staying somewhere cheap if it’s not accessible?) and it is up to you whether you wish to stay in the heart of Munich or further out, to get a feel of the countryside.
