I chose the Anna for its proximity to a meeting venue in Munich's Altstadt. Additionally, the website photos showed that the hotel had a lot more design flair than the usual basic alternatives that business travelling on a budget usually entails.
I followed the recommendations by other reviewers to book on the 4th floor or higher. As the smoking floor is the fourth, this suited me perfectly. Although I had reserved a single room I was upgraded to a double. The room was fairly basic in amenities, but was well designed and decorated, and light. The bathroom was an excellent size, and even though I prefer a bath, the shower was spacious. My major gripe is over the size of the bath towels - far too small for the average human (this is a very German hotel problem). However there were 2 bath towels provided.
The added bonus to staying in the Anna is the lobby level bar and restaurant area. It appears to be a really popular venue for both locals and visitors alike. This is where you have breakfast (nice buffet, and eggs to order). At night the place is buzzing. There's a great atmosphere, a good menu (the sushi is supposed to be great, but I didn't get the chance to try it), and the perfect alternative to staying in your room killing time until you fall asleep - aka the joys of business travel.
Nice people on the reception - very friendly.
I'd stay at the Anna again if visiting Munich on business. I don't think I would choose a single room, as I would probably find it too cramped having tried the double.
