“Great Location to downtown Munich”
Reviewed 14 November 2010

We stayed at the Acanthushotel for the Electronica Tradeshow at the Messe Center. The hotel is perfectly located near the U2 U-Bahn station which is about 10 stops from the Messe center. The hotel is within about a 10 min. walk from Marienplatz and about 20 min. from the Hofbrau House.

The hotel has wireless internet for about 5.5 Euro for a 24 hour period of time. However, they were frequently running out of them and only had the 12.5 Euro cards available. There is a Starbucks nearby which offers free internet access as well as the Apple store near Marienplatz.

My room was on the 4th floor right behind the tiny elevator. I thought it would be noisy, but I never heard it (though I tend to be a sound sleeper).

Breakfast was good and felt it was good for 8 Euro.

Only some of the staff spoke clear English and some didn't speak English at all.

Overall, the hotel wasn't the most comfortable, but the price and location made it a great compromise. No A/C that I could see, so it could be hot in the summer time. My room was on the street side and the street sweeper woke me up early Saturday morning as my window was open.

We stayed here 3 nights in Sept 2010. The room was decently spacious as well as the bathroom. The elevator was a little small !!! (holds 1 person + 1 large bag), but got the job done. The breakfast here was outstanding - a great spread of meats, cheeses, bread, and also lots of local delicacies. It was just what we were looking for and there is a very cute breakfast area to eat as well. We found the front desk to not be over the top with customer service, but attentive to all needs and helpful with anything you requested. No free parking but we dropped our car off so no problem. We took the subway to the airport also and that was within walking distance (very easy!!).

Overall a very nice hotel and we would consider it again.

The hotel website does not represent hotel. We were greeted by a grumpy desk clerk who blew cigarette smoke in my face as I arrived. This was the welcome we recieved and was an indication of more to come. The smell of smoke was terrible. It wafted up from the courtyard and bar at all times. Made the hotel unbearable. The rooms were tiny and less than clean. The common areas were dirty and in need of updating. The numerous silk flowers in the hotel served more as dust collectors than decorations. We left after one night and couldn't get out of there fast enough! Worst hotel of a three week vacation.

We stayed for 4 nights and loved it. The hotel is on a side street so it's quiet. The room was clean with comfortable linens. The bathroom towel warmer was a nice perk. The breakfast buffet offered many fresh and tasty typical European choices including fresh fruit. The coffee was excellent and there were high quality teas as well. Great city center location. Walking distance to the central train station. You can relax after your day's adventures and enjoy a drink in their quiet bar area which doubles as the breakfast buffet space. A special surprise was the small burlap sack of fruit, nuts, cookies and candy outside our door on St Nickolas morning.

Pluses: location (really close to historic sites and centrum); reasonably priced (100 euros per room including a great breakfast); nice staff; good-sized room with big, comfortable bed.
Minuses: bad pillows; no air conditioning; no free WiFi; nice HD TV with nothing much to watch.
