Fodor's Expert Review Hotel am Viktualienmarkt

Utzschneiderstr. 14, Munich, Bavaria, 80469, Germany See on Map

This little family-run hotel is perfectly located a few hundred yards from Viktualienmarkt and the Gärtnerplatz quarter. Modern and sprightly, it offers great value for money right in the heart of the action. Next door is a small cupcake store and there's a decent Thai restaurant, next to a great new cocktail bar, at the end of the street (Utzschneiderstrasse 6) - and that's just the beginning when you're this central. Free Wi-Fi throughout, and thankfully the hotel now has an elevator.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Rooms at the back of the property are quiet, but those at the front can be louder - check with staff if you are a light sleeper. There's no air-conditioning, but windows do open (although this obviously adds to the noise).

room

Stark white walls and bedding, wooden floors and brown accents give the rooms a light, bright, spick and span feel.

The impressive five-person apartment is remarkably cheap - from €199 - which is a bargain considering you are in the Old Town.

bathroom

Bathrooms are white and crisp, clean and functional. There's a soap dispenser by way of toiletries.

lobby

The lobby is dominated by large windows, suffusing it with natural light.

dining

The buffet breakfast is good - although not always included - served in a stylish front room with neat tables and high-back chairs.

LOCATION

Getting Around

A great location in the Old Town, meaning the sights are all within stumbling distance. Public transport is easy too.

Restaurants

Munich's Hofbräuhaus (8-minute walk) offers tradition, atmosphere and beer by the bucketful - as well as tasty Bavarian classics. Touristy but fun. Or that Thai restaurant we mentioned, Yum Thai (1-minute walk), is just up the road for a quick bite.

Bars

The aforementioned cocktail bar, Garcon (1-minute walk) is small but good - or, as the Germans say, klein aber fein (rather more like small but 'ooh-la-la', or so we are reliably informed). If you're a live music fan, stylish and low-key Jazzbar Vogler (2-minute walk) is barely any further away in the opposite direction.

WHY WE LIKE IT

There are a few bonuses - the family-run vibe, the good breakfast, the bright feel - but the real winner here is the impressive combination of a knockout location and sometimes astonishingly reasonable prices.
