Expert Tips


Deciding where to stay is the most important decision.

After a long day in a foreign city the less you have to worry about the better.  In Munich, Germany's wealthiest city, there are plenty of options that will more than address every conceivable need a guest could want. From family run hotels like the famous Bayerischer Hof Hotel to the corporate business style hotels such as Hilton or Sheraton, you cannot go wrong with anything on our list.  Unique or standard is your choice and sometimes location is the only factor you care about, but that is certainly no reason to compromise any of the other features.  As you go through this list note that some have rooftop terraces with pools, some have multiple restaurants and bars, some are downtown, some are better for public transportation while others are better for the car, some are better for tourists while others are better for business trips, some cost several hundred euros and others only a couple hundred.  If the hotel is on the list, it meets the highest of standards and one should not worry.

The standard for any hotel on this list includes breakfast although internet access is usually an additional fee. but with reasonable speeds and no hiccups unlike at the budget hotels.
