“Charming hotel and neighborhood, but you have to want this location”
Reviewed 17 May 2012 via mobile

This is the third time we have stayed at Freisinger Hof, and it suits us perfectly. It has obvious Bavarian flavor. Front desk personnel dress in dirndles and decor reflects Bavaria. Signage is in German, but we got along fine speaking English. We speak no German.

Breakfasts are not exactly included, but you're expected to eat there and are charged for breakfast unless you tell them well in advance (I don't know exactly how far in advance) that you won't be having breakfast. Breakfast is good with wide variety of fruits, cereals eggs, salads, cheeses, sausages, etc. Scrambled or fried eggs can be ordered.

Rooms are immaculate and bathrooms luxurious. We stayed on the side of the hotel away from the street and overlooking a small terrace. We had a small suite that was spacious and well appointed. There was a minibar with the usual fare.

Another time we stayed here in summer when it was very hot, and the hotel is not air conditioned. Air conditioning is not the norm in Bavaria.

The location is not walking distance to the usual tourist destinations, and I think it requires more than one bus or combination of bus, tram, etc to get near Marienplatz, art museums, etc. It is located very near the vast Englishergarten. We enjoyed daily walks there. The neighborhood is charming with shops and apartments. We want to stay in this area because we have family nearby, but the location might be a problem if you're interested in typical Munich sightseeing.

We'll definitely be staying here again.

We found this hotel via HRS when travelling from Belgium to Slovenia. Not far off the motorway 99 (ring around Munich), the buildings - hotel and restaurant - are in Austrian/Bavarian style, and so is the excellent 'cuisine' in the restaurant. Staff is friendly, professional and flexible, and rooms and bathrooms are modern and clean. No mini-bar but free wine and water in the room. Also free use of fitness and sauna. A glass of home-made jam as a good-bye present rounded off a perfect stay - congratulations!

There are numerous excellent hotels in Munich. Unfortunately they are either very expensive or lack character, or both. This one here is the exception, and it is for the right sort of guest almost flawless at that. Housed in a historic brick building,it is lovely to look at, inside and out, and spic and span. It's a few minutes' walk from the river Isar and the surrounding park landscapes, connecting to the English Garden, which is a real plus to help the jet-lagged traveler unwind. The service personnel is very friendly and service-oriented indeed, the buffet breakfast rich in choice, the dinner restaurant very, very good if you like traditional and only slightly fancified Bavarian and Austrian food and wine (beer, too, of course). The rooms are spacious enough and tastefully appointed in a mix of modern and traditional elements with a properly modern bathroom and shower (good pressure). The rooms are well insulated so you don't hear your neighbours or folks in the corridors, and in any case, the typical guest here is the more settled type. The place is very convenient if you want easy access to and from the airport (about a 15-20 minute drive on an almost straight line) and offers parking out front and in a garage.
But understand that this isn't a five-star hotel. It's four star which means the service is less comprehensive, there is no gym worth mentioning (OK, there is one but it's small), no pool either, and no air conditioning.The location is a major limitation: staying here really only makes sense if you have a car or are willing to shell out sufficient dough for taxis. Public transport connections in this spot are a real hassle, and the center of town is not in walking distance. The beds are European size (still, after all these years, European hotels seem to think that a submarine style bunk may be called a "single bed") but at least they are reasonably firm so I slept well. I advise against booking a room facing the road. That is not a small back alley but a fairly lively through-road. And with no air conditioner it will be tough sleeping with closed windows for parts of the year. The rooms facing the backside are the ones to go for. Nice view onto the garden and trees beyond. You might want to ask for a room as far away from the beergarden as possible to ensure quiet. Not that it gets very rowdy down there and they do close down at 11pm I think but still, if you are noise-sensitive like me, then best to make sure.
One more time about the lack of air conditioning. This, like the bed sizes, is a regular problem in (central and northern) Europe. The logic here is: why invest in an aircon if it gets hot only a few days of the year? It must be said that it is not only a "few days", more like a few weeks including surprise heat waves as early as May, and those can be nasty. And some people just don't sleep well when the temperature rises much above 20 C. And if you have a hotel facing a through-road and even make the effort to install relatively well-insulated windows, then it would seem to me that you should at least offer some rooms with aircon.
Enough of the griping! Depending on the time of year, this will be my base camp for Munich henceforth because you cannot find a better deal, with the same rates year-round, in a lovelier setting.

Had a wonderful 2 day stay here recently. Pretty hard to find fault with anything during our stay. The room was immaculate, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was probably the best we have ever experienced in Europe. It features free parking and is located in a nice neighborhood though the street its located on is a bit busy. The only downside might be the proximity to downtown though public transportation is only a block away and I'm sure it wouldnt be terribly difficult to use it for a trip into the city center.

Traveled to Muenchen with my fiancee along with other family (kids too). The Freisinger suited all of us well. We stayed on the floor directly above the pub/restaurant area, but didn't notice any of the noise mentioned by others.

The initial check-in was OK. The young lady at the desk seemed a little annoyed at first with our request to have all the rooms together, but they were able to quickly accommodate (in which case, not sure why the frustration). That turned out to be a very isolated incident, the rest of the staff was very pleasant and helpful.

A repeat of previous comments, the hotel is not close to the city center. We opted for a mini-van style cab, a 15 minute ride which came to about 40-50 Euro one way. I figure it equals out somewhere since you pay more to stay closer to the center. Depends on your personal preference, but having the quiet getaway was quite nice for us. After opting for city-center locations in places like London and Rome, guess we finally learned our lesson!

The breakfast is most deserving of top marks. Many many options, whether you're craving some Bavarian Weisswuerste, a simiple bowl of cereal, or the wide selection of Deutschland's trademark bread and meat selections, you won't be disappointed. Great variety, and plenty of it. The Pickled Herring was particularly noteworthy.

Overall great quiet place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised at the quaintness and extremely well kept appearance of the entire property. Clean rooms, and comfortable beds. Wouldn't mind a repeat stay one bit!
