“Great City Location”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

I stayed at the Konigshof Hotel on 9th May and the best thing about this hotel is the location.
Its supposed to be five star and there is no doubt that the room rates are very espensive. I paid over €400.00 for 1 night and breakfast was €29 extra.
Breakfast was special with full silver service and a fantastic view over the bustling Karlstad plaza. The food and service was excellent but its not worth €29.00. You can find a good breakfast nearby for €6.00 so if you stay here for the location then I suggest you dine out.
The room was luxurious with gold plated taps and all mod cons. The wellness area is very small and the sauna was not working and very little steam in the steamroom. The jacuzzi was OK but it did not have a swimming pool which is dissappointing. However the bathrobes, towels and all the other little extras e.g. free hair comb slippers etc was impressive. BUT you are paying for it.
My overall impression was that this hotel is overpriced.
The staff are excellent and I would certainly return if the hotel drops their prices by 50%.
I will not be going back purely because of their prices.

I totally enjoyed this hotel. It is located conveniently in the city center. It is easy to get around by public transportation. The front desk was wonderful. I liked my room. It was very quiet. Loved the bathroom shower arm. I did not eat breakfast in the hotel because 29 euros for breakfast was very expensive. There are a couple of Starbucks nearby. The lobby is inviting and gorgeous. Outside of the hotel both In the front of the hotel and on the side... the areas with greenery were filled with trash. I was told it was the city's job to clean it up but the trash does impact the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the hotel service areas. Rooms on the side without the traffic are quieter.

I had stayed there some years ago and i came back the previous week.Everything was perfect, as always ( tho room, the staff, the breakfast etc). We had an early flight and we arrived in the hotel about 11.am. They given us the room immediately, which was very important and we appreciated it very much. Also the location of this hotel is fantastic, in the heart of the city. I would strongly recommended it and i would stayed there again.

Reviewed 4 January 2012

I stayed here for two nights recently and while I do understand some of the previous negative reviews, I enjoyed the hotel and would not only recommend but would stay here again myself if in Munich. The issue most previous negative reviewers had seems to be the style and character of the hotel, calling it out-dated and run-down. It's true the place does seem a bit past its glory days, and the style is squarely a bit old-fashioned, but nonetheless I thought it was very comfortable and a pretty good bargain considering the location and the amenities (in particular, breakfast and wifi included).

We had a superior room which is the lowest class of room, but it was fine. It did have the dreaded twin-beds pushed together but we found it perfectly comfortable. One problem we did have was the pillows - they were horribly thin and ragged. We asked for a couple extra pillows and they arrived within minutes. The hotel is one which has a "pillow menu", so you can choose from among several varieties of pillows, but unfortunately we didn't notice the pillow menu card among the literature until we were packing up to leave.

The breakfast buffet wasn't impressive in my opinion, but you can also order a la carte from the menu - eggs any style, a few types of sausages, etc., and the a la carte menu is also included in the free breakfast deal.

The real value for me is the location - it's right on a main square in Munich (Karlsplatz), which is a short 5 minute walk down a pedestrian zone to the main town square (Marienplatz). It's also immediately adjacent to a major transit hub (underground), which has two trains (S8 and S1) running to/from the airport for 10 EUR each way. The convenience factor there was much appreciated.

Overally I would definitely stay again, and would recommend to others.
