A good place to stay near old town
Posted Dec 28, 2016
Mercure hotel is perfectly placed 300 m from Munich Central Station, about 1km from the shopping street and old town.
Plenty of places to eat around, all decently priced.
Guests should be ready for a typical European central station diverse crowd and few somewhat seedy establishments in the area (look at Google maps and you will understand) but never did I feel any danger or discomfort.
A couple of well-stocked supermarkets, Aldi and Lidl are just around the corner if you want your own breakfast.
Rooms are very clean and in very good condition, all young reception staff spoke excellent English. Do not know if this was a Christmas gift or a regular service but minibar - beer, water and soft drinks - was completely free!
The only minor gripe would be fairly thin double glazing that sometimes did not protect from over enthusiastic passers by. If you want a quiet room, I suggest you try asking for one without the street view.
Overall: excellent stay, very happy with the hotel.
