Excellent hotel in Munich

If you have reason to stay near the Munich main train station, I highly recommend the Schiller5 Hotel on Schillerstrasse, just a block outside the station. I know this area is not considered the nicest, but the street is fine and the location so convenient. The hotel itself is great---very friendly staff, and a lovely modern room. I booked a prepaid rate in advance and got a great deal on a rooftop studio--- a very large room with balcony, huge bathroom, and kitchen facilities ( fridge, microwave, and stovetop).

We had only one night in Munich, arriving and departing by train, so the near-station location was a perfect choice. But if returning to Munich, I would book there again even for a longer stay, as the room was so nice. Plus the nearby Geisel's Vinothek was a very nice place for a light (and late) dinner.

Thanks for the recommendation. Last time we were in Munich we stayed near the train station and it was awful - the hotel and the area. It was only one night, thank goodness, otherwise we have left. Will file the name away, never know when we will be passing through again.

On both Schillerstraße and Goethestraße are numerous Pensionen and 2 star hotels A few years back I checked out a couple of them as future possibilities to stay in the train station area. I always stay in a Pension in the train station area, very satisfactory for a single (EZ), be it two nights or four, taking the Arnuftstraße exit, go through the Bahnhofspassage, which has been expanded, refurbished, and finally completed, and come up across the street from the Pension.

Barbara---the area around the train station is often described as "seedy", but it varies by street. There are some nice hotels around there, so the neighborhood is gradually being upgraded.

Hotel Schiller5 is so close, just 1/2 block from the pedestrian subway exit from the station, that one has minimal exposure to that aspect.
