Munich was on my 2013 European itinerary, albeit just for one night, and I had no hesitation in booking rooms at the 4* Holiday Inn Munich City Centre after staying there in 2010. Location and access to the S-bahn rail system which connects to the airport are two of the factors that make it a good choice in my books.
Rooms at Holiday Inn Munich City Centre
The hotel offers a total of 582 rooms, seven of which are suites and six are wheelchair accessible. Interconnecting rooms are also available.
Standard rooms (which I stayed in on both my visits) are modern and comfortable and include tea and coffee making facilities, desk, TV, ironing facilities and free WiFi. The bathroom features a bathtub (with shower overhead) and hairdryer.
If you are travelling with children, kids under 19 stay free at Holiday Inn Munich City Centre when sharing their parents' room (using existing bedding).
Dining at Holiday Inn Munich City Centre
Holiday Inn Munich City Centre offers two dining facilities and a bar.
Grat3 serves an excellent breakfast with extensive offerings and is also open for lunch. Lunch options include organic salads and Bavarian dishes.
I suggest purchasing an accommodation package with breakfast included as to purchase breakfast separately it costs €25 per person. The hotel is large and therefore has to feed a lot of guests at breakfast time which can mean waiting for a table, so allow yourself plenty of time.
Isar3 Bar, Cafe and Restaurant is open 24 hours a day, serving everything from Starbucks coffee to international cuisine.
This restaurant only opened in 2016 - on both occasions I stayed at Holiday Inn Munich City Centre we ate at the on-site Hoch3 restaurant which served delicious Bavarian cuisine. I would expect the quality of meals at Isar3 to be equally as good.
Other hotel facilities
The hotel also has an indoor swimming pool and a fitness centre is located in the adjoining shopping complex. Hotel guests receive discounted entry for the fitness centre. Also in the complex is a shopping centre which includes two supermarkets, clothing and shoe stores, a sports store, and more.
Getting to Holiday Inn Munich City Centre
The Holiday Inn Munich City Centre is situated close to the Deutsches Museum and is a leisurely 20 minute stroll (1.5 kilometres) from the heart of the city where you'll find the pedestrian shopping area, Marienplatz, Rathaus and Hofbrauhaus.
The hotel is built above the Rosenheimer Platz underground station where trains leave regularly for the 45 minute journey to Munich Internation Airport.
If you arrive into Munich by train, a taxi from the Hauptbahnhof (main station) to the hotel costs between €12 and €18 one way.
Car parking is available at the hotel for €20 per day.
Would I stay at Holiday Inn Munich City Centre again?
Yes, definitely as I believe it is good value and it is in a great location. The hotel would be a great base whilst enjoying some fantastic day trips from Munich.
I booked and paid for my stay at Holiday Inn Munich City Centre before I left Australia. You can check current rates for Holiday Inn Munich City Centre and book online HERE.
