I stayed at the Hotel Astoria in Schwabing on Nicolaistrasse. It is about 3 Ubahn stops from downtown.<BR>The main street of the area is near the hotel. There are quite a few restaurants and other shops along it.<BR>I found a delighful Italian ice cream shop dangerously close to the hotel.<BR><BR>Nicolaistrasse itself is a short side street between Leopoldstrasse, the main artery, and the Englischer Garten. <BR>We enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the gardens one mild September afternoon. The area seems to go on forever. <BR>The breakfast at the Astoria was really first class. Plenty to eat with a wide variety of delicious breads, cheeses, fruits, cereals, and fruit. There was also fruit juice, tea, and delicious coffee. <BR><BR>Our room was comfortably large. Compared with the room we had in Paris, it was at least twice as large. And the shower was a real shower compartment, unlike Paris, where there was little danger of drowing the bathroom. <BR><BR>It is also easy to reach from the airport. We took the Lufthansa bus into the Nord Friedhof stop. We could have gone to the Gieselastrasse Ubahn exit, but because of our luggage I opted for a taxi. The bus driver radioed ahead for a taxi, which pulled in behind the bus. We transferred our luggage and were soon at the hotel.<BR><BR>Mrs. Hildebrandt, the lady in charge during the day, speaks good enough English to help. She is a very friendly lady. Other staff members speak some English, and all are helpful.<BR><BR>As you can tell, I liked the place and you can easily guess where I am staying this year in Munich. <BR>

You didn't mention your budget, for how many people and how are you travelling- car/train etc..?<BR><BR>In Munich we stayed in Pension Westflia which was really good. I think it was around DM120 at that time - 3 years ago. It was a double with a bathroom. It's really close to the oktoberfest grounds, walking distance to the train station and old town center of Munich. <BR><BR>In Prague, we have stayed in a few places.<BR><BR>Hoffmeister was okay for a 4-star. Didnt' think too much of it.<BR><BR>Ambassador cannot be recoomended. It's situated on Wenceslas sq. We woke up in the middle of the night (we had taken a suite for the night) cause it was too warm to sleep, called the front desk, to be told that this 4-star international hotel suite didn't come with air-conditioning. I bet their casino was!<BR><BR>Our favourite place to stay in Prague was where we stayed 3 years ago, and ended up goign back to - in an apartment of a family of musician and it was just really nice. The price was significantly less, sleep was a lot better. And they are a stroll away from Charles bridge. If you're wanting to hear more, send me an e-mail. This place was $30/night.

Sorry I should clarify - we stayed in an apartment that was on top of a privately owned house in the Mala Strana distric of Prague. <BR><BR>
