This welcoming, family-run pension is in a quiet western suburb. If you're traveling with children, you'll appreciate that it's a 10-minute walk from Schloss Nymphenburg and around the corner from the Hirschgarten Park. The tram ride (No. 16 or 17 to Kriemhildenstrasse stop) from the main train station is 10 minutes. There's free parking, too, so it's a good option for those traveling on from Munich, or for people who want a quiet, green retreat that feels like home while in the city.
The hotel is close to Europe's largest beer garden, The Royal Deer Garden. Fun in the summer!
Rooms are simple and traditional, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes - there are some affordable suites with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, which is great for families.
Bathrooms are clean and functional, with modern facilities, and larger than average.
A small, friendly lobby area with a pine reception desk and plants is staffed by an extremely helpful, welcoming team.
The delicious European-style breakfast is great, with homemade jams from the Black Forest, sausage, breads, and loads more.
YOU SHOULD KNOW You can book with or without breakfast - it's 10 euros, which is a reasonable price for the spread on offer.
The hotel is not central, but public transport is easy enough - there's a tram stop by the hotel or the nearest S-bahn is around 15 minutes away on foot. In some ways, that's one of its strengths: it feels like a quiet retreat, and there are a number of attractions nearby, too.
Kleine Rose (5-minute walk) is a great little Greek restaurant with large portions near the hotel. Or try Ristorante Risotto (5-minute walk), a pleasant Italian with a cute outdoor terrace.
Simon's Cocktail Bar (13-minute walk), through the park, is an unusual spot - great views and tasty drinks, but beware: it's only open Fridays and Saturdays, and that's by reservation only. And you can't miss Europe's largest beer garden when in Munich, can you? Luckily, the Royal Deer Garden (Hirschgarten in German) - (6-minute walk) - is very near.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Simple and unassuming, Kriemhild is still a lovely little hotel, with proper family-run values and a guaranteed calm, quiet stay. It's good for families, too. On the downside, it's a schlep from the city center - but then, that might be exactly what you're after.
