Hotels in Munich 4/19 - 4/23!?!

Does anyone have any suggestions for hotels other than those listed in Rick's books? Apparently there is a huge convention starting on 4/23 & everything is booked around that date.

Any suggestions for a clean, safe, not super expensive hotel is appreciated.

Thank you,

Allison

You might try Gästehaus Englischer Garten, a small hotel away from the center, and not a business-type hotel likely to be booked up for a conference.

Also, try a major booking service, such as Munich -info (http://www.munich-info.de/hotels/welcome_en.html) and see what turns up in your pricerange for your dates. You can come back here and check on individual properties for advice.

Good luck. I think it's a building trades convention?

I stayed at the Hotel Royal in Munich during Oktoberfest. I was about $85 if I remember correctly. It is across the street from the main train station. The street has some strip clubs on it, but there was not anytime that I did not feel unsafe at night even walking alone. The free breakfast was good too. If you go on google and plug in Hotel Royal Munich you will find it. Best of luck. Kim

Hello, we will also be in Munich from 4/19-4/21. We booked about one month ago and found a cheap room at the Hotel Munchner Kindl. All of our other choices were filled, and now I know why. Good luck.

You might try out of town a bit. We have stayed in the Hotel zur Gred in Freising and liked it.

Freising on the München Sbahn system and is serviced by local (RB) trains. The hotel is very near the train/SBahn station. Freising is an attractive small town.

This year we are going to try Landshut and Hotel Restaurant Weihenstephaner Stuben, also near the train station.

For transportation to München for sight-seeing, you could either use the Bayern-ticket on the trains or the München Partner Card on the SBahn, both all day tickets.

Good Luck, Gary

When I can't get in with one of Rick's suggestions, I go to www.hotel.de it is the best booking service I've found (even here in the US). No Hidden fees. They have some under 100 euro options in Munich for your time frame.

Try the Hotel Jedermann in Munich. It is only about 10 minutes from the train. It is a great place to stay, inexpensive and a terrific staff and the breakfast buffet is the best!!! www.hotel-jedermann.de

The Ibis Munchen City is right near the station and a great base. Very basic,like Ibis hotels are, but a great base for the train and bus tours which go from the station. PottyaboutParis Sydney Australia
