Late change of dates - need munich hotel suggestions

we had to change the date of our trip and having trouble finding reasonable hotel in munich.

Looking for pension/hotel around $200 a night or less and must include breakfast. Our go to used to be Pension Lindner but alas that is not an option anymore.
Waiting to hear from Hotel Uhland, Schwabinger-Warheit, Pension Siebel.
Motel One near Sendlinger Tor has one night unavailable and Hotel am Viktualienmarkt is booked full. I'Ve also checked hotel am markt, hotels laimer hof, schlicker, platzl, royal, goethe, exquisite, monaco, torbrau, and haberstock. Does anyone have other recommendations. The other hotels I saw listed seemed to be above our price range.

Thank you

We are in Munich right now. Staying at Hotel Metropol, just outside Marionplatz area. Includes breakfast. We like it so far.

I too used to love Pension Lindner. Too bad Hotel am Viktualienmark is booked, we have had two great stays there. The other place we have stayed is Hotel Lux, which we adored. We were there just this past December and our triple room was $200/night including taxes. Breakfast was a bit more, I think 12 euro pp if I remember correctly. but it was well worth it! FWIW, I would stay there in again in heartbeat.

Maybe you can look at Motel One Deutsches Museum if others fall through. I haven't stayed in that location but a person from Munich recommended it.

Dates can make a huge different in price, so it is important to specify.

I just looked at a hotel near the train station that we have liked for short stays, and mid-week room prices varied from €369 in June down to €169 in August. Some of that reflects on the type of room still available, but it is all based on demand, which can be driven by events.

The dates are 6 September through 12 September, before Oktoberfest.

Knowing the dates, I just checked Hotel Lux. For 6 nights it forms in at $1073 total. On there is only one room left. If I were you, I would snag it. Wee LOVED that hotel!

The Marriott Aloft is right across from the Munich main train station, very reasonable, breakfast extra, but still ok. Not in Old town, but always an option, and you may have credit cards points to use.
Safe travels!

We end up in Munich almost every December after visiting the Xmas Markets and we have stayed at many of the hotels listed above. We have stayed at a few of the ones you mentioned. Our new favorite hotel with a fantastic location is Hotel Platzl - their breakfast is also one of our favorites. We have already booked them again for December 2023. You can check them out on TripAdvisor, but I always book directly on their website.

I recommend Hotel am Viktualienmarkt, and best breakfast ever!

We loved Hotel Uhland. Huge rooms in a renovated mansion. Wonderful breakfast spread included. Spotless. Moderately priced. It's close to the Oktoberfest grounds so if Oktoberfest is going on, I can see why you'd have a problem.

Hi Cindy,

I was recently in Munich and we did Uhland (loved it) but we had to do another hotel for a portion of the time due to availability. We stayed at Wunderlocke with 3 people and loved it. If this is in the summer you must go to the Tollwood Summer festival (across the street from Hotel Uhland). Best of luck and you will find something.

Hi Cindy!
I'm in the same boat, but looking for Oktoberfest dates. So I know I'm going to have to pay more. I'm curious about why Pension Lindner is not an option anymore? Was it price or is it no longer available. I'm nervous that I booked it and it has closed down or something. Any insights would be helpful!

I booked directly from their site, at least I think it's their site...

Just returned from a stay at the Hotel Metropol. It was excellent in every aspect.

My understanding is that Pension Lindner closed in July 2020. We stayed there in October 2019 and mentioned we will see her (the owner) on our next trip to Munich. Our 2019 stay was our third. We were told that it was doubtful the pension would be open due to the lease ending. With the housing market so tight in Munich the terms of the new lease were expected to be such that running a pension would not be financially feasible.

If Pension Lindner has reopened, please post the information. We have stayed other places in Munich. Pension Lindner was my favorite.

Please let us know where you end up staying.
