Munich - 2 nights

Will be spending 2 nights (1.5 days) in Munich in late July, looking for a few suggestions. Arriving by train Sunday afternoon, leaving by car Tuesday morning. Can anyone recommend a decent, fairly inexpensive hotel ($75-$100)? I'm picking up a car from Hertz when I leave, is it important to have a hotel near Hertz, or is it easy to lug our bags on a train/tram to get there (2 of us)? Danke.

Good luck finding anything even remotely close to the price range that you want. It will be even more difficult if you plan to be particular.

Unless you get out of Munich, plan on spending $150 to $200 a night for something nice inside of Munich

Ken,

I agree with Ray about an inexpensive hotel at this late date. You might try the Munich Tourist Office at muenchen-tourist.de. They have a pretty complete list of hotels, and you can check price and availability.

Regarding your Hertz car, where are you picking it up? Hertz has several locations in/around Munich.

The trains (S-Bahn, U-Bahn) are great and pretty easy to manuver, even for a rookie.

Too bad you are only spending 2 nights in Munich. It is a great city with much to see and do.

You might try the Hotel Jedermann, near the train station. It's reasonably priced, good breakfast, right on tram line. Their website is www.hoteljedermann.de.

Well, it was worth a try! Stopping in Munich is actually a last minute change of plans, as an addition. Hence, only 2 days. But thanks for the info, I'll try the tourist office. Any advice on how best to spend my short time?

Not sure about where I'll pick up the Hertz car, but since it's on my way out of Munich it could be whatever is the most convenient location. It's probably obvious I haven't researched Munich yet - kind of doing it back-assward.

I stayed at Pension Seibel last October. Great location near the Viktualienmarkt and Marienplatz and close to the U-Bahn if you need to take it to Hertz. We rolled our luggage onto the U-Bahn and went to the train station easily. The Pension is a bit shabby, but it's inexpensive and the breakfast is abundant and good.

I agree, decent and the price range is difficult. We just spent 2 nights at the bayerischer hof which starts at 200 (it was a paid for spot from an employer). I wish you luck also if it is as hot then as it was when we were there..because they apparently do not believe in air conidtioning in these places. I am curious is anyone knows if this is typical of hotels there?

If by chance you are in Munich over a weekend, I would strongly suggest the Munich Marriott which has terrific weekend rates and which is a very nice hotel with all the amenities. It is on the U-bahn line and we arrived by train and then took the U-bahn with no trouble at all. Our rate was under $100.

I suggest trying nethotels.com. Just state what you are looking for and they will find you something. They got for us Hotel Elefant, which I've read a lot of good things about for 99 euros for a triple , which was half of what I could find on my own. I don't believe they have ac though. I have just been researching Munich because we will be there July 10 & 11. I am certain there is a good deal at a chain with ac near the Mirabel gardens. Marriot is having a summer magic special which allowed us to get a 5 star hotel in salzburg for only 134 euros--incredible. Check last minute.com for munich and when I figure out which hotel is was in Munich, I will write back. (maybe it's Marriott Renaissance--see www.renaissancehotels.com I think) But if you keep looking, you WILL find a great room at your price. Good luck.

Try the Hotel Daniel and the Mark. We stayed at the Daniel this past April. Had a triple room for about $125 a night, which included a nice breakfast buffet. Stayed at the Mark in October about two years ago and paid about the same. They are both nice, comfortable hotels and are located not too far from the train station and an easy walk to Marien Platz.

Although, it is a shot in the dark of the hotel you will get, I used priceline for Munich. I got a room at the Marriott on Berliner Strasse for only $50 dollars a night. Might be worth trying.

IMO, the best hotel in Munich is Arabella-Sheraton. Despite being a Sheraton it is not expensive - we paid only $104/night. It is right next to the subway station and that makes it extremely convenient. I think they have Hertz next to it. I don't remember the address, remember only that street is something like "Germinstrasse".

Since you are limited on time, you might want to have one of the walking tours that the tourist office offers. You get to walk, but get alot in in a few hours time. Watch for timing though; many tourists offices offer early AM tours. I know I had a walking tour in Munich in the afternoon since I was only there for the day my first time.
