The choice of 3 star hotels in the center of Munich is quite large. I will give examples:

The hotel has a sauna, underground parking and bike rental (for an additional fee), Wi-Fi in the lobby, which, according to some reviews, is caught in the rooms.

Cheap hotels in the center of Munich

The most budget option in the city center are private guest houses (this is something like guest houses). An example is Pension Locarno  – next to the central train station. Prices from 58 euros per night.

Pension Lindner . It is located 300 meters from Marienplatz and Viktualienmarkt, has a high rating. Affordable price, the availability of rooms with both shared bathroom and private. Due to the affordable price and high ratings of guests, rooms are very quickly disassembled, so it is better to book a stay in advance. Since the reception does not work around the clock, arrange in advance and in as much detail as possible with the owners about the time of arrival. As a rule, if you discuss everything in advance, the owners wait until late at night.

You can also consider Pension Am Jakobsplatz  – another private guest house located in an apartment in the center of Munich. A rating of more than 9 points is justified by its excellent location (9 minutes from the Hofbräuhaus and 2 minutes from the German Museum), pleasant staff, good breakfast and caring for guests. The guest house also has free Wi-Fi. Toilet and bathroom – one for 2 rooms, a shared kitchen, in which tea, coffee and fruit are freely available. Reasonable price for the center of Munich, so reservations must be made in advance.

Also Hotel Dolomit , which we stayed in 2016. Then there was a price of 60 euros per night, and for the promotion 3 nights for a price of 2 we got a price of 40 euros per night. Now (in 2019) prices have risen and in the off-season start from 80 euros for a double room, and the usual price – from 110 euros. Large, clean room with a private warm bathroom. Located near the central train station, to the Marienplatz square on foot for about 12 minutes. To be honest, in the first minutes I’m a little uncomfortable in the area, since it’s not at all a Bavarian area, but then you get used to it and you understand that everyone is basically peaceful, busy with their own affairs – with shops and hairdressers. Therefore, personally it seems to me that it is a completely safe area.
