Which hotel: Uhland, Blauer Bock, or King's Center?

Hi everyone, My sister and I are traveling to Munich in early June for a week. I saw recommendations here for these hotels, and was quoted the same price by all 3. After reading the postings, I still cannot decide which one to take. Can anyone help me decide?

One more question: Uhland has confusing tourist/standard/comfort levels based on 'size and furnishings', but no indication for 'how small is small'. Is anyone familiar with the differences?

Thanks Gary. Were you there during the summer? I woory about the noise many travelers refer to if you need to leave the windows open.

I might have been one of those people recommending the Blauer Bock. The location was excellent, being near Viktualienmarkt and therefore Marienplatz. It is near several restaurants and sights. The hotel is older w/o being run down. It has a good breakfast and a nice staff.

I know that other folks have there own good experiences with other hotels. We considered the Hotel Uhland ourselves based on good recommendations here and elsewhere (Tripadvisor) but settle on the Blauer Bock for its location.

Regards, Gary

Yes, we were at the Blauer Bock during the summer and had a room on the street. There is club across the street that was noisy when it closed. I would recommend asking for a quiet room not facing the street in that case.

Hello,

Me and my wife stayed at the Hotel Uhland in December 2004. I was confused by the comfort levels also; after e-mailing back and forth I was still confused. I picked the standard level. From what I remember we had more than enough room for two people - queen size bed, wardrobe, chair/table, at least one side table next to bed, TV mounted on the wall, ample size bathroom - even had door(s) that opened to another room just for our use that would have been nice if we were staying in warm weather. I think you can also pick type of bed(s) you want (twin/queen/etc.) From what I gather tourist is smallest rooms, comfort are largest rooms. Hotel is about 10-15 minute walk from train station/S-bahn/U-bahn in a neighborhood I thought was safe at the time. Staff very friendly, decent breakfast included in price. Rooms were quiet as was the neighborhood.

We recently stayed at the Blauer Bock and were delighted. The hotel is clean, centrally located, large spacious rooms, good breakfast and well priced. You might also check out reviews on Trip Advisor.

We had a giant corner room facing the hall across the street, but it was winter. Even though, we had the windows open a bit and it was fine, but they have plenty of rooms not facing the street, as previous poster notes.
