I've contacted several hotels in Munich for lodging April 21-23; the first three I've checked --Uhland, Monaco, Royal--are booked for one or all of these days. I found the Hotel Hahn at Landsberger Straße 117 D and the Hotel Atlanta at Sendlinger Str. 58. The former has a tram close and the latter has a public transit station close. I'm not familiar with the locale of either hotel, and definitely not the hotels. Has anyone stayed at the Hahn or Atlanta? If so, how was it? I'm looking for a room for double en suite within 500m of an SBahn or UBahn station (or tram) and need to keep the cost no greater than Euro 90.00/night. Is this going to be possible during the Munchener Fruhlingsfest? We don't need to be in the city center so long as there is a SBahn or UBahn station nearby.
I've stayed at the Hotel Hahn and liked it very much. Clean, traditional furnishings (if that Bavarian gemutlichkeit gets you going...), a little bar in the lobby serving great Austrian wine and Municher beer... I would consider staying again. The one downside is that it's a little further away from the old city than many other hotels in a similar price range. It is connected by streetcar/tram to the Hauptbahnhof, Karlsplatz, etc. The tram stop is a 5 minute walk away. It's also about a 20 minute walk to the Hbf. And if you're going to Fruhlingsfest, you're actually closer - walking distance in fact - to the fairgrounds than many other hotels, so that's a bonus. If it's available for your dates, I'd book it.
Sarah: This is what I needed to know. By the way, do you recall how often the tram runs and how late in the evening. This will be our second visit to Munich and we want to see several places we missed on our first visit. We will likely be using the SBahn/UBahn quite a bit, and may not get back to the hotel until the evening 21:00 h or later and will use the tram to get us closer to the hotel. Thanks again for the information.
I know the trams run at least until 11:30pm-12am. We weren't back to the hotel before 11pm most nights we stayed there. Another plus, despite the somewhat boring neighborhood it's in, is that it's just past the Augustiner Brewerey and has one of the best Augustiner beer halls in town. (Of course there are Augustiner outlets everywhere, but this one had the highest local/tourist ratio of ANY beer hall I've been to in Munich, and the food is fantastic!)
