Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I searched extensively for a hotel in Munich that would suit our needs. This hotel ticked all the boxes and I wasn’t disappointed when we arrived. Close to the city centre, only 6 min on the Ubahn- station a short 4min walk from hotel. But also well away from the Christmas holiday crowds. Room was clean, bright and spacious for the 3 of us and very cleverly designed. Lots of storage space. One thing to note there is no mini fridge in the room, making it a bit tricky if wanting to store some grocery items from the nearby supermarket.
Area surrounding hotel is safe. Staff were most friendly and always happy to assist. There was no kettle in the room however it was no issue when we requested one, a kettle was quickly brought to the room. Breakfast had plenty for us to choose from and great value for around 12 Euros per person. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Great value for the price.

Dear ronitn156, Thank you so much for your great review. I will share it with the whole team. I´m happy to read, that we ticked all the expectations ;). Due to the room concept, there is no fridge in the room, but you can store your items at the reception. Furthermore I am working to find a solution that you can order a mobile fridge to the room. But this will need some time as I need to make sure, that the fridge will easily fit into the rooms and that they are noiseless. Great to read, that you loved our breakfast. We are working hard to improve it all the time. Since a couple of days, we have a homemade nut-nougat-creme and organic eggs from the surrounding countryside. Hope to see you soon again. Best wishes, Christoph Hotelmanager

We have just returned home from our 2 week stay with the Swabinger Wahrheit

The hotel had organised a pick up from the airport and after a 25 hour flight and little sleep we were happy we took up the offer. Our hotel rooms were ready for us on arrival despite arriving very early in the morning. I have to say, nothing is too much trouble at this hotel, hotel management will fall over themselves to help out in any way possible.

The beds are dreamy, pillows are soft and rooms are soundproof. The hotel has a wellness room that we used each morning and the breakfast each morning was super fresh

The location can't be beaten, Schwabing is just north of the city & Old town but the U bahn stop (giselastrasse station) is just around the corner although we preferred to walk along the beautiful main street into Odensplatz and Marienplatz. Its only a 20 minute walk into the city and a few minutes walk to the beautiful English gardens. Schwabing is a trendy area with lots of great shops, restaurants and german bakeries close by. Edeka & Lidl are just around the corner.

We are so thankful that we choose this location after looking around the city. We had thought about staying near the train station for convenience but so glad we didn't

We will definitely return

Great hotel in a trendy neighborhood right outside the central part of Munich. Lots of shops right outside the hotel as well as restaurants. The room is maximized in terms of amenities to square footage of space where you feel there’s a lot of room for what you want/need but in fact the room isn’t huge. Some may find it strange that you basically walk into the bathroom but there are separated glass doors for the toilet and shower. Breakfast was ok (no hot foods available) but for people who are used to continental breakfast, it works. They have a parking elevator which takes your car downstairs but it’s very slow. You drive into the alleyway into the hotel to find the check in and garage. I’d stay again.

Dear laughlovetravelwine, what a great review. Thank you so much. We love our location too. You will just need 5 Minutes with the sub to the Marienplatz.

Trendy type of hotel with a distinct youth hostel flair. Rooms are small and scarcely furnished. We stayed for a night in October 2022 with our daughter. Although the web site states that kids are free, we payed more than 400 Euro without breakfast for a single night in a standard room without even a chair to sit on. I have never stayed in a hotel where the price and the experience where further apart. Needless to say that we will not go back, but I would not recommend this place for anyone looking for good value. Had it cost a third of what we paid, I could recommend it for people looking for a simple hotel without any facilities in a decent location.

Dear alexandersY9069ZS, First of all I would like to thank you for your feedback. I am very sorry to read, that you were not satisfied with our hotel. As you can see from the many great reviews, our guests are generally very satisfied. You booked your room through an online travel agency and you saw the room style as well as the room rate. I agree with you that the room rate was not cheap during the world´s largest construction fair, BAUMA. Unfortunately, as a company, we are also forced to adjust the room prices due to demand and are not able to offer consistently low prices due to the ever-increasing costs. As you have already stated, you will not visit our hotel again. I regret this, but I wish you a good time for your next stay in Munich. Best wishes

A great place to stay just north of Munich city centre. Clean, sharply styled, uncluttered rooms, with comfortable beds. Friendly, helpful staff - with special mention to the woman leading the kitchen who prepared my gluten-free bread rolls on sight every morning. The otherwise buffet style breakfast is all you could ask for. Given the recent snow storm we had the pleasure of two additional unplanned and hassle free nights in the hotel. I would not look elsewhere on a return visit.

On the first night at 03:30AM, the fire alarm in all rooms went off (my watch registered 110dB sound). This is the first time I see that fire alarm is inside the room rather than outside.

My wife and I jumped out of the bed, took just basic belongings (passports, wallets) and rushed down the floor together with a bunch of other guests that were also in panic. When we went down to the reception, there was a guy working who barely spoke any English, and we waited for about 10 minutes until the alarm stopped. I asked the receptions to explain what happened, and he didn't explain anything, talked something in German and from other guests I heard that it was a fake alarm and that we can go back to our rooms. We went back to the room and just as we calmed down and falling back to sleep the alarm ringed for a second again. Frustrated, but we somehow went to sleep and wanted to talk in the morning with the hotel receptionists what happened.

In the morning, another receptionist told us that there were some drunk people who intentionally broke the alarm in their rooms. OK, that is something that you cannot anticipate - but I asked will they be kicked out of the hotel and what they are doing to prevent it happening again that night? She didn't know what to answer, something along the lines "we will see, blah blah". We were away the whole day and when we went back later that night, there was another receptionist, and we asked him what has been done about the situation, and he didn't even know that it happened!

Dear nkltrlvr, Thank you for your review. I am very sorry about the disturbance at night. As you can imagine this is a very serious situation for us as well. In an emergency, this is about the safety of our guests. Our hotel is equipped with one of the most modern fire security system. We are happy about that. Our employee (for over 20 years) who worked at night speaks english. I ask for your understanding that this situation requires the full attention to make sure that it is a false alarm. As you already found out, an other guest caused the alert by an mistake. If a guest will intentional trigger an alert or will damage things, we will "kick them out", be sure. Anyway, once again I am very sorry for the fire alert but this could happen in every bigger building or hotel all over the world. Unfortunately we cannot influence that. Our last fire alert at night was 2018. Best wishes,

Good location, near restaurants and the English Garden. Also close to underground station. 25 mins walk to marienplatz. Beds comfortable. Rooms ok for family for a couple of nights, kids were on sofa beds. Rooms are in a modern style. Hotel has underground parking for 25 euros per day, on street is limited. Breakfast was pretty standard for this type of hotel, although good options nearby. Staff were friendly. There is a small hot tub for guests. Overall we thought this was pretty good choice for central munich.

Perfect hotel, great locality and nice size rooms. Nice outdoor jacuzi and a sauna. Reception staff were very helpfull and friendly. Nice restaurants nearby and UBahn 5 minutes away. A bit irritating to have to write 200 characters in this review when much less would have been fine!

The rooms are exactly as they look in the photos: Modern, functional, and bright. The room with two double beds was perfect for our small family of 3. I loved having enough hooks and towel racks everywhere. But the best thing about this hotel was being able to park the car in a secure garage, and then not needing the car for getting around Munich. Two subway stops within walking distance, English Garden, just a few blocks away, and lots of restaurants, bakeries, and supermarkets within walking distance. Just across the street was a tiny sushi place that was AMAZING. Within steps of the front door, were a BIO supermarket, Asian supermarket, and a nail salon.

We had the perfect short city getaway in this delightful hotel.

Our flight was cancelled, so we booked this hotel on short notice. Rooms were really big with a very good shower. Reception area very cosy, didn't eat breakfast, because we had to catch a flight, but the breakfast looked great. There was a cosy gym and a mini spa. The hotel area is a very nice part of Schwabing, lots of shops and restaurants!
