We stayed at Hotel Deutsches Theatre on the weekend of May 5, 2006. First of all, the pros. This hotel is within walking distance (about 6 blocks) of the Hauptbahnhof (main train station). It is also just a few blocks from the Sendlinger Tor, through which is the Munich Altstadt (old city) with its many shops. There is also an U-Bahn/S-Bahn (subway/commuter train) stop at Sendlinger Tor which is convenient for getting nearly anywhere around Munich. The staff was at least somewhat friendly and spoke English until they realized that I was always replying to them in German. Rooms were a decent size with windows that fully open. Small safes were in the rooms, the key to which was available for a EUR 10 deposit. The shower was small but adequate. Breakfast offered a typical variety of breads, cheese, meat, and yoghurt. Moving into the cons, the room had a very small TV (but you don't come to Europe to watch TV, right) and a mini-bar, which disappointingly was not in a refrigerator, but just warm drinks sitting on top of the counter. Non-alcoholic drinks were EUR 3. You can get cold drinks from the people downstairs, but they only have sparkling water, so if you don't like this, remember to get your own at a store before closing time, or you'll be walking down to the train station. The decor of the hotel is a bit on the shabby side and the hallways and stairwells are a bit dingy, but it is, of course, kept very clean. We had a room on the courtyard side, which looks across to part of the Deutsches Theater (hence the name). In that courtyard are practice rooms and a dance school, so there will be noise from that until about 10-10:30 at night. "Eins! Zwei! Drei! Vier! Noch einmal!" I don't ever want to hear the song 'Memory' from 'Cats' again either! The area around the hotel has a lot of Turkish establishments and is not what I would call a particularly 'touristy' area, but it isn't scary. I would recommend this hotel to pretty much anyone looking for basic accomodation, as long as they don't go to bed before 10:00pm.

Unique Qualities: Very convenient location pretty much right between central Munich and the train station.

Address: Landwehrstrasse 18, , Munich, Bavaria 80336
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Go out of the train station on the east side. Go right on Schillerstrasse about four blocks, then left on Landwehrstrasse about 2 blocks. This is a different hotel than the "Deutsches Theater Hotel" which is on the opposite side on Schwanthalerstrasse.
