Admiral Review

The small, privately owned, tradition-rich Admiral enjoys a quiet side-street location and its own garden, close to the river Isar, minutes from the Deutsches Museum. A comfortable bar with regal-looking chairs is right behind the lobby. Many of the nicely furnished and warmly decorated bedrooms have a balcony overlooking the quiet secluded garden. The breakfast buffet is a dream, complete with homemade jams, fresh bread, and Italian and French delicacies. An increasing proportion of the breakfast is organic and it can be taken in the garden. The use of the minibar is included in the room price and Wi-Fi is free throughout.

    Admiral Review

    I have stayed at the Admiral 25 or 30 times, in both single and double rooms, often as part of a group of business colleagues and social friends. The rooms are, of course, immaculate and extremely comfortable (although I do strongly prefer the more spacious beds in the double rooms), and service could not be better. The owners and service personnel will stop at nothing to accommodate requests and to ensure that one's stay is peaceful and enjoyable. I find it refreshing that the Admiral was ahead of the curve in establishing non-smoking floors, which at one time was extremely rare in Germany.

    A previous poster made a comment to the effect that the breakfast buffet is "not the best in Europe." This wouldn't appear to be a controversial comment on the surface, but more than one of my colleagues have come to the opposite conclusion - in any event the breakfast always draws raves.

    I have never encountered rudeness at the Admiral (which is somewhat unusual in German hotels), and the front desk staff are as good as any concierge, with none of the pretentiousness that one often experiences elsewhere.

    It is true that the night staff usually doesn't speak English at the same high level as the day staff, but it IS Europe, after all.

    The owners have done a wonderful job in transforming this hotel into a luxurious destination, and I am anxiously looking forward to my arrival there in two weeks.

    Admiral Review

    We just came back from a visit to the Admiral. First, the minibar is no longer free. There is now a charge. Also, the WIfI internet access doesn't work very well and very hard to get a connection. The staff at the front desk was very rude and seemed bothered by questions. As there was no concierge, we needed to ask the front desk staff about recommendations or where to get certain things and they seemed very put off by having to assist us. Upon checkout, there was no "thank you for staying" or any pleasantries, just handled a large bill. We had to keep asking for more towels as they gave us 2 towels for 3 people staying in the room. The breakfast was very good but not the best in Europe. The location is very good as it is close to everything, but not worth the money for the rude service.
