Fodor's Expert Review Mercure Hotel München Altstadt

Hotterstr. 4, Munich, Bavaria, 80331, Germany, Munich, Germany See on Map

This straightforward, comfortable hotel is a decent deal for its great location; there are a number of Mercure hotels in Munich, but this location, between Marienplatz and Karlsplatz, is right in the Altstadt. Breakfast, included in the price, is better than you'll get at lots of hotels, and even some restaurants.


Rooms are air-conditioned and modern, with spotted carpets and standard-issue hotel-style dark chairs. Nothing to write home about, in short, but comfortable enough. Rooms with single beds are available.

A free mini-bar with soft drinks is replenished daily, which is a nice touch.


Bathrooms are a little small, but well-equipped and clean.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Irons have to be requested from reception, which feels a bit weird, considering the boards are in the rooms.


The reception area is unremarkable but staff go the extra mile, including assisting with early check-ins where possible.


We've mentioned the breakfast already, but it really is a blinder, and always included in the basic price.


Getting Around

The hotel has a great central location, particularly considering the price.


Get your German beerhall fun in at Ratzkeller (6-minute walk). Or take a break from the heavy Bavarian fare and try some tasty Vietnamese at Soumi (3-minute walk).


Head for Unter Deck (4-minute walk) for live music, dancing, and a general party atmosphere. Or MUC (8-minute walk) is a friendly, classy bar.


A professional, international-standard chain hotel in the very city center of Munich, stay here if you want a reliable three-star with a great breakfast and helpful staff.
