We like the way this privately-owned place honestly fills its niche in the Munich hotel scene. While glossy newcomers charge as much as they can get away with for designer bedrooms, this place is open about its strengths and weaknesses, and charges accordingly. The strong point is, of course, the peaceful location and ambience: on the edge of the Englischer Garten, the building is an old mill, covered in ivy. You can listen to the sound of the fast-running stream that passes alongside the building through your open windows at night.
     Some of the bedrooms are spacious and light, though others are small, a few sharing a shower on the floor below and decorated in a style that may seem old-fashioned. But so what when the rooms are pleasantly home-like and when the price is in keeping? Some rooms are as cheap as 70 euros, perhaps the best-value accomodation in central Munich when you consider the charm and the peace of the place, and that all is beautifully maintained.
     The breakfast room, with views, makes a pleasing start to the day and in fine weather you can be outisde in the garden. There's a useful choice of restaurants nearby in Altschwabing, and a popular Biergarten five minutes away in the Englischer Garten. The hotels hires out bicycles, so you could take some exercsie in the Englischer Garten, too.
