this certainly is not a 4 estars hotel, but a 3 stars.
the room (double with courtyard view) was much to small for a 4 stars hotel and does not deserve its price (230 euros with breakfast for two included).
the bathroom was reasonable, however only shower and no tub. the last time i saw a double room without tub in a 4 stards hotel was 30 years ago.
the size of the room was small. there was a minibar, a safety box, an lcd tv with satelite channels and a small working talbe. the wardrobe was minimum and there was not enough space in the room to leave a suitcase.
the bed was good but despite of it, you can hardly sleep as the interior soundproofing does not exist: you can hear your several neighbours breathing, talking, waking up, using the toilet, walking by the corridor.... most of two stars hotels are better in this respect.
in order to avoid noises from the street on a saturday night, i chose the "courtyard view" (20 euros more expensive than the other double rooms. the view was a plain roof and a building in front.
the hotel charges 24 euros per day for the wifi. such price is an abuse in my opinion and i did not use the wifi. there is a free pc at the lobby area which was always occupied.
other insultingly expensive extra was 25 euros per night for a small dog in the room. i could understand it once during your stay in concept of extra sanitation , and perhaps something cheaper for the rest of the days.
the hotel carpark is reasonably better than other hotel carparks, suitable for big cars with a cost of 19 euros per day, which is not cheap either, however more reasonable than other extras.
the staff was the best in teh hotel, always friendly and helpfull.
breakfast was good, with a good selection of cold meats, pastries, yogurt, fruits, cereals, eggs of your preference, sausages and bacon (including order of bavarian sausages which is not in the buffet) and good coffee.
there is pleasant bar at the lobby. i did not use the restaurant and the spa.
the two lifts did work, but very slowly.
the location of the hotel is excellent, at the heart of the city.
despite of the good staff and the good location, i would not recomend this hotel and certainly will not return to this hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You place great importance on quality and want to be right in the middle of Munich's city life? Then Platzl Hotel Munich and its culinary offerings are the address for you. This traditional four-star Superior Hotel and its two popular restaurants - the Pfistermuhle and Wirtshaus Ayingers - are located in the heart of Munich's old city, right beside the famous Hofbrauhaus. And just a short walk from the Marienplatz, the Bavarian State Opera, Maximilianstrasse and Viktualienmarkt. The Inselkammer family and its team combine Bavarian hospitality and traditional style elements with a modern lifestyle and state-of-the-art technology. It begins with a warm welcome in the foyer, continues through the 167 guest rooms and only ends when you leave Munich through the city's historic quarter. This combination of tradition and modernity also creates the ideal setting for private celebrations such as birthdays or weddings, but also conferences and seminars. Your visit should also include a taste of the culinary offerings at our two restaurants - because gastronomy has a long tradition at the Platzl. As early as the beginning of the last century, the Platzl stage was graced not just by cabaret giants such as Karl Valentin. Good Bavarian food also made repeat appearances, being served to guests before and after the performances. Today, the Pfistermuhle is synonymous with sophisticated Bavarian cuisine - at Munich's only preserved city mill. Since the year 2000, people from Munich and elsewhere have enjoyed the hearty regional dishes at Wirtshaus Ayingers, which is next door, while the charming stores and eateries in the "Platzlgassen" add to the lively atmosphere in the Platzl. Our outside bar the Platzl Karree presents a unique bar concept in Munich's old town. Because of the stylish and yet down-to-earth design the fine balancing act between tradition and modernity with the Platzl Karree is perfectly realized. The dominating colors anthracite with burgundy and the dark parquet flooring create a bar to relax and enjoy. In the new Josefa Bar & Kaffee we serve locally produced unique spirits, cool beverages with herbs freshly from the Viktualien market and own cocktail creations. ... more less
