Close to the main train station in Munich, the Hotel Royal's single room was expertly designed and comfortable without breaking the budget. The flat-screened TV had many channels and was on a swivel just a bit above the foot of the bed, so that one could move to the comfortable chair over by the window and swivel the TV to see it well.
I was pleased to have plenty of storage, a desk, free wi-fi that the desk gave me the password to, upon check-in. Soap dispensers were at the sink and in the shower. The rooms seem to have been recently refurbished. I heard no sound from adjoining rooms.
The only drawback is the noise outside on the Schillerstrasse, especially on weekend evenings and late into the night. It is very helpful that the room is soundproofed, though some noise gets through the closed window. When I opened the window for some cool air, in came a cacophany of sound and music. The good thing is that one has only to walk a block and a half through this neighborhood.
I did not partake of breakfast, as it is separate from the room cost. Overall, I would stay here again for its excellent room design, price, location close to the Bahnhof, and roominess for a single. I would say the neighborhood is OK if you use common sense.
