Hotel on the outskirts of Munich.

My daughter is traveling to Munich the last week of Sept. Being new to European travel, she did not realize she was arriving at the busiest time of the year. She is having difficulty finding a reasonably priced hotel. Does anyone have any suggestions of hotels that might be just outside Munich, but close to a bus or train line?
Thanks,
John

If that's when she needs to be there, or she wants to attend Oktoberfest, then I encourage her to keep trying, probably with online search engines. Hotels prefer to book longer stays, so some might not reply if she's only requesting a couple of nights. Several edge-of town recommendations have been made by other contributors on this Travel Forum, which you should be able to find using the Search field above with terms like "Munich hotel" or Munich Oktoberfest. The Oktoberfest site connects you to this hotel search. When I attended Oktoberfest in 1994, the worst room in town was still available and still affordable (booked in person at the tourist office, place was near Laimer Platz underground station). If she's there on Sunday, 9/21, I recommend attending the costume parade.

Try the Park Inn by Radisson München Ost. Lovely breakfast and I would stay there again.

IF she can speak or write in German, I suggest she contact this place. It's in a northeastern suburb, just a few blocks from an S-Bahn station into town (about 25 minutes to Marienplatz). I've stayed there a half dozen times. The don't speak English (or at least didn't when I was there). The website doesn't say anything about the price being "from" or that prices might be higher at some times.

Another option might be this place in Landsberg am Lech. I was there the last Saturday night of Oktoberfest, and they had not raised there prices. If she actually wants to go into Munich, it's about an hour's trip with a change in Kaufering.

Both websites are only in German. I don't think Hotel Strasser would answer an email request in English (they told me they didn't want guests who couldn't speak German), but I think Augsburger Hof would. At least they tried to speak to me in English when I was there. Try, it can't hurt.
