With voucher in hand we expected to check in at the Excelsior. The Concierge stated that there was a problem with the system so without warning we had been booked at the Schwabinger Wahrheit in Schwabing instead. I am fully aware of the fact, that our visit coincided with ESMO a

This is a nice hotel among many hotels in the district. It is very accessible from the Munich Airport. There are at least two train lines (S1 and S8) that take you near the hotel. Many of the must-see places are in walking distance to the hotel. Wifi is not super but ok. The brea

Dear Hans S, Thank you for stay and your nice feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at our Excelsior hotel and you evaluate our rooms, service, as well as our downtown location to be good as well as convenient. Great that we could indulge you with our breakfast buffet, but please let correct you, the charge is € 22.00 per person. I regret we could not fulfill all of your expectations on our hotel.

Hi Ross, We are looking at staying at the Excelsior Hotel soon for the first time in a Junior Suite Deluxe or Classic and I see that you stayed there recently in similar accommodation. I'm not sure about the difference in the rooms except the one that is 50EUD more per night is smaller so I wonder if you could expand on your experience with the condition of the accommodation to help us decide. Also is the area safe to wander at night? Thanks Andrew
Dear Andrew, please let me take this oppurtunity to reply to you as well and give some more details on the two different junior suites. It sounds great that you intend to stay at our Excelsior hotel. Both junior suites are spacious with a comfortable additional sitting area and luxury bathroom. It is a difference in style/design. The classic junior suite is designed in a traditional, romantic, country house style. However the deluxe junior suite, as renovated last year is kept in a modern, elegant style and combines timeless elegance and modern comfort. So I guess it depends which style you prefer for your visit. For further questions pelase feel free to contact us. With best regards Julia Sprung
