Another outpost of the reliable, business-like H'Otello chain, which aims to bring a bit more of a stylish feel to the medium to basic end of the chain hotel market. Located in the still-trendy Schwabing district, like one of its sister properties, this branch delivers on simple, smart decor and cleanliness, plus a decent breakfast, as well as good prices.
The king-size beds in the otherwise stripped-back, grey and white rooms are a big plus.
YOU SHOULD KNOW There's no air-conditioning, which can make hot summers uncomfortable.
The similarly minimalist bathrooms have rain showers.
For longer stays, the suites have kitchenettes, living areas and bathtubs in the bathroom.
Sleek and plain, the lobby is a clue towards the hotel's white, minimalistic aesthetic.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Some guests have complained about the quality of some of the reception staff's English.
The decent breakfast buffet includes homemade yogurt and lots of fresh fruit.
The hotel is a few minutes from Luitpold Park and equidistant from the Olympiapark and the Englischer Garten, and close to two metro stations for travel into the Old Town or the airport.
For a treat, excellent--but pricey--Italian food is available at Vinpasa (3-minute walk). Or try Ethiopian food at the famous Blue Nile restaurant (4-minute walk).
Bar, restaurant, club and garden: Lebenslust Schwabing (3-minute walk) has it all going on. Or for a more relaxed experience, nearby tapas bar Bodeguita (5-minute walk) is cool.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Reliable and well-priced, in a trendy location outside the Old Town, this chain hotel ticks the boxes for a quiet, comfortable stay with a bit more of an eye on sleek, modernist design than most in this price bracket.
