Munich airport lodging

We are flying out of the Munich airport early in the morning and are looking for lodging near the airport. Any recommendations?

There are a lot of places in Freising. It's a 20 min bus ride from the Freising Bhf to the airport.

The easiest way to find airport accommodations is to go onto GoogleMaps.com and enter "Munich Airport."

Click the "+" button 2 times, and it will magnify the map to where hotels and B&B's will show up on the map as you scroll up and down. You can click on those hotels to get a link to their direct websites, including rates and pictures.

For example, http://www.gaestehaus-flughafen.de has very inexpensive rooms, and it looks pretty nice.

I very often use GoogleMaps.com to identify rooms, and often see if they're available on Booking.com. I'll also double check to see if they're featured on TripAdvisor.com for info purposes.

Rooms in small hotels and B&B's close to airports are often reasonably priced and perfectly decent. So many of the European business hotels on airport premises are simply out of the budget of independent travelers.

We enjoy staying in Freising for our last night. We have been satisfied with both the Hotel zur Gred and Hotel Bayerischer Hof from the link that Lee gave. You can walk to the train station from either and catch a bus to the airport. It is only 15 minutes to the airport. There is also an ever ready line of taxis at the train station if that is a preference.

The Weißbräu Huber has good food and atmosphere for a last evening in Germany.

For a while Zur Gred was difficult to find because they could only be booked through a commercial booking website :( . However, I recently noticed that they can be booked directly. This is their website; their email is info(at)hotel-zur-gred.de.

Freising is the home of the Weihenstephan, the oldest operating brewery in the world. I spent my last night in Germany in 2012 at Weihenstephan, enjoying a couple of beers under the shade trees in their Biergarten.

The airport Hotel Kempinski is wonderful and has an excellent restaurant. It is, however, very expensive.
I have used the airport Sheraton and the Hotel Arcadia. Both have inexpensive shuttle service to the airport.
Try going to Booking.com and search for Munich airport hotels--lots of suggestions there.

Sometime in the next decade, German Rail is going to run regional rail into the Munich airport, apparently using the current S8 line and platform. One of the trains should come in from Salzburg via Erding, and Erding will then be very convenient by rail to the airport. Until then, Erding is a 32-36 min bus trip to the airport, less convenient than Freising.

We stayed at the Movenpick Hotel which is in an executive park near the airport. Shuttle service to the airport is available. We really liked the hotel and found it through hotel.com. Great breakfast buffet included .

Hi,

We also stayed twice at the Moevenpick in Hallbergmoos near the airport. Very nice place, but in an office park setting. We also stayed once in Erding at the Park Hotel (Best Western). Again, very nice place to stay. We preferred this simply because we really liked the old town of Erding, which was an easy 5 min. walk from the hotel. For about 20Euro, a taxi took us to the airport in about 15 or so min.

We liked the Park Hotel (Best Western) in Erding too. For an early morning flight, it's a pretty quick taxi ride to the airport. The hotel sent us to a great restaurant, the Erdinger-Weisbrau, in the center of town, a short walk from the hotel, and right across from the Christmas market (if you're going soon.)
