Nice HotelPosted Oct 7, 2014
Location: Close to train station, shops & restaurants
This hotel is conveniently located across from the train station & walkable to town. The décor is outdated but everything is clean. Breakfast was good. Some staff members were nicer than others. Overall, it is a nice place to stay.

DisappointedPosted Aug 19, 2011
The people who run the hotel are very nice and friendly and provide lots of help and advice. The wi-fi works OK and they have some parking. reception is only partially manned throughout the day. It's convenient for the train into Munich, but it's a bit pricey compared with driving, and the surrounding coutryside and lakes are nice. The village is fairly quiet, with a few small eating places at reasonable cost. We stayed in three Bavarian hotels, all about the same price, but I have to say that this was by far the worst. Our room was so dated that we considered checking out immediately, but it was late and we needed a large family suite, so not that easy, so we stayed. The decor was dire, the windows didn't seal, so we could hear the local drunkards into the late hours, the TV was an old CRT with four channels. The bathroom was horrid, very old with damaged fittings and filthy extractors. Breakfast was pretty much "help yourself", with nobody on hand, and with instant coffee and other elements running out and not replaced. Not unacceptable, but poor compared to our other experiences at the same price.

We would use Hotel Simon again - very convenient for rail travel into MunichPosted May 9, 2010
We wanted to visit Munich for a couple of days before travelling elsewhere in Bavaria. We had a rented car, but did not want to drive aorund the city centre and struggle with parking. Because we planned to head South after staying in Munich, Gauting was a convenient location to get to after picking up the car at Munich airport (Satnav made finding the hotel easy too). I'm sure that the excellent Munich public transport would make getting to this hotel from the airport straightforward, and it would take perhaps an hour. The railway station in Gauting is right opposite the hotel, so after arriving, we were able to use S-bahn and U-bahn to go wherever we wanted. Approx 20 minutes to city centre. The hotel provided good, clean, basic accomodation (small apartment with some cooking facilities which we did not use) at a very fair price for a family of four. The sleeping arrangements were a little cramped, but the good breakfast (included in the price) offset this. Note that Expedia guaranteed the booking with credit card, but the hotel preferred to be paid in cash when we were there. We did not explore Gauting much, but as always in Germany we found it easy to stroll around and find good-value pizza (and beers of course) etc. We would not hesitate to use this hotel again if we were in the area.
