Having stayed at Best Western Atrium Hotel in Munich previously, i decided to stay here again. I was going to arrive in Munich late at night from Dresden, and Best Western Atrium Hotel's proximity to the Hauptbahnhof (Main Train Station) made it an attractive choice.
The neighborhood can appear sketchy, but I felt safe. The street from the train station leading up to the street on which this hotel is on is lined with adult entertainment venues and lots of Middle Eastern restaurants.
The street on which Best Western Atrium Hotel is located is very quiet, and is lined with many stores, and a hotel or two. I was cheerfully greeted at the reception. Since my trip was in the middle of the insane June heat wave in Germany, the receptionist then sincerely apologized that they had a problem with the air conditioning system, and that they had provided a fan in the room to ensure my comfort. She offered another fan as well if I found one fan to be insufficient.
The hotel was freshly renovated. My room had more stylish furniture than the room during my previous stay. it was modern and clean, and had everything for a comfortable stay. When one fan proved to be insufficient, they quickly provided a second one as well, which made it for a very pleasant stay. My room overlooked a courtyard or back street and it was very quiet. the bed was very comfortable.
Since I am a Diamond member of Best Western Hotels, at check-in they usually offer water and some snacks. This particular hotel also offered me a voucher for a drink at the bar, which I redeemed for a beer, consuming it past midnight - unusual, but a perfect and memorable choice, considering I was returning from a lengthy train trip from Dresden, and it was a very late hour to go out for a dinner, and I had early morning plans ahead of me. They also provide apples in the reception area of the lobby, and this too was nice.
The next day, I had lunch at Shahana, a wonderful Iraqi restaurant near the hotel. Check-out was super-efficient. While this is not a luxury hotel, it is highly functional and practical. Would return to this very convenient hotel for sure. less
