We have stayed at the Helvetia during both our trips to Munich. The hotel is located very close to the haupbahnhof station and in easy working distance to the old town. It opens out onto a red light district but it is busy and we always felt safe despite all the goings on. The rooms are clean with standard but...

Excellent location just near the central train station; easy walk to Oktoberfest and old town. Other reviewers mentioned seedy area (true there are strip clubs etc) but its very busy so you don't feel unsafe whatsoever. Rooms were surprisingly quiet and decently modern. All in all we were very happy for the price (since other options were much more expensive...

I mean the price is good if you looking for a little comfort in pricey Munich. Very close to Hauptbahnhof and shopping centres, so I liked that very much. It is close to strip clubs and night hangout spots though-but very safe! One night I got lost because I forgot the hotel name! (Shocker) I stopped at a hotel and...

Excellent location at the city center, near Hauptbahnhof, Karlsplatz and 7-minute-walk from the famous Marienplatz. Close to plenty of restaurants and malls, but the area is quite noisy at night. Small but efficient and clean room with a large, comfortable bathroom. While provided with tea, coffee and water supplies, the rooms have barely slight access to internet connection.

Hotel is close to Munich Main Train Station. Only 10 minutes walk. With restaurants and shopping close by. Walking distance from main shopping malls. Few bars near to hotel and hence is noisy at night, There are 4 large garbage bins on the roadside just opposite the hotel. Very noisy and disturbing sleep when clearing of garbage in early morning....

The rooms were ok and the service was good but not great for solo travelers at night. The area is seedy since it's right by the train station. I went with a group of people but not sure if I would stay in that area alone. The sink was clogged as soon as we got there and we had to...

Decent hotel for the money and location. Its right next to the central train station and in walking distance of most attractions/shopping areas. Food is good in the area, which looks a little sketchy at first. The room I had was nice, on the 4th floor that had a window that opens out into the middle courtyard. Rooms are clean....

We were in town to watch the Bayern Munich game against Mainz. We only stayed for one night and we wanted a hotel nearby the Hauptbanhof. Our room was on the top floor and we liked it. However, it could get a bit stuffy but this can be fixed by opening the window. The room was basic and the bathroom...

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, really quiet, had a great sleep. Wifi was hit and miss in our room, probably due to being at the back of the hotel. Clean, close to the main train station. It is in an area that isn't pretty, but is just a 10-15 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants....
