Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Monaco
Nice Hotel, Convenient Locationfrom tia18
We had a room with a double bed and a single bed. The room was huge, extremely clean and very nicely decorated. My parents also had a nice double room but unfortunately the man in the adjoining room was a heavy smoker and that made their room quite smelly.
The breakfasts were also good with a buffet of cereals, breads, rolls, yoghurt, fruit, eggs, hams, cheeses, spreads, juices, and cake.
The hotel has a great location. It is close to the Main Train Station & a walk away from the Marienplatz. The area may have a few strip joints but from my experience this is pretty normal in Germany and it doesn't mean that you are staying in a bad area (I have even seen a strip joint in an airport in Germany).
Nice and cosyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Try the Indian restaurant around the corner by the CA on Bayerische strasse, very chaotic and very good.
Lovely hotel and locationfrom accel626
Flower Power!from hkeenan
I was however pleasantly surprised. The staff were so friendly and the room was HUGE! There was a bit of a flower and cherub theme going on though, even down to the staff wearing flowers round their necks but if you can get over that then you will realise it is one of the best value hotels in Munich.
The location is great.It is literally a 5 minute walk from the Train station and a 10-15 minute walk to the main square. The breakfast is adequate and was included in our bargain price. The staff even threw in a free phone call back to Ireland which was very nice.
The only criticism i would have would be that there was no safety despoit box and we were asked to leave the key at reception every time we went out which i didnt feel comfortable with.
Near Central Station and easy to get around the cityfrom kaitakkid
We booked a double bedded room but got twin beds...it didn't bother us and we didn't ask to be moved, but I am sure they would have accomodated a move should we have wanted one...The bed's we had however were not comfortable and a week in them was more than enough, although the linen was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was good size and there was always plenty of very hot water. Breakfast was very good....a buffet style layout with almost everything you could ever want..very comprehensive....There was no other resturant or bar on the premises but there are many withing a few hundred yards of the hotel.
Late at night / early hours of the morning the area becomes a tad noisy, especially if you have a room facing the road. I didn't see any air conditioning, so in summer it could be quite noisy with the windows open at night. The staff are good. There is no parking for guests. Probably slightly over-priced for quality, but good for convenience. I would return there...but only if the beds were better.
Loved the Monaco!from TravelDocinOK
Big surprisefrom A TripAdvisor Member
If you don't want to pay a lot and want to be in a central place in town (only 5 minutes walk to the pedestrian area in the centre, a few mn iutes from the "Hauptbahnhof") we can recommend this hotel!
Great hotel - Would stay here againfrom kilmistr
Hotel Monaco! What luck!from tat2dhelen
The staff at the front desk informed us that we could stay there both nights if we wanted. We went and checked out Hotel Deutches Theater and hands down decided to stay at the Monaco. They even freshened our room the next day while we were out (not my normal European hotel experience). The owner Christine was so nice and friendly as was everyone who worked there that we met.
We paid 129 Euros for the Quad per night and that included breakfast in a lovely breakfast room.
It was only a five minute walk to the train station and five minutes to the city centre.
We will definately stay here again! Don't let the area or the outside scare you. We were so grateful for the mixup at the Deutches that allowed us to find this gem!
Stay somewhere elsefrom SueFritz
Our non-smoking room was down the hall from the front desk, where the clerk smoked all night and you could both smell and see the smoke coming in under the door. There was so much noise in the street below (strip club down the block) that we got almost no sleep. The room was okay but I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Top Local Tips for Munich
Fussen and Neuschwanstein If in munich, definately take a day trip (at least) to Fussen in southern Bavaria. It's only 2 hours by train, and it's beautiful, surrounded by forest and mountains. Most importantly, visit Schwangau just next to Fussen, and see Schloss (castle) Neuschwanstein, the most amazing thing I've seen!
Broeding Great truffle and vines.
walking in munich Everything is fairly close and within walking distance of the main square. Check out the food market to the south of the square, the Residenz north of the square, and the clock tower in the main square. Easy to use trolley and underground.
