On a quiet street near the Oktoberfest area of Munich, Hotel Eder is a clean, comfortable, and convenient place to stay for a family of up to 4 (plus a baby). Rates are fairly affordable (they change based on season) and include a Bavarian-style buffet breakfast with good variety. A few minutes’ walk will get you to shops, restaurants, and the main train station. The only tradeoffs: like with many European hotels, the rooms are fairly compact, so don’t expect too much room to spread out–and there is no air conditioning, so summer guests may not be comfortable in the heat. Free wireless Internet access comes with each room.

Second stay at the Hotel Eder and we weren't disappointed, First re booking, Munich is a somewhat expensive and the Eder is very competitive in it's pricing which shouldn't put you off. As last year we wanted a hotel near the main train station, the Eder is about 5-10 minutes walk away in a side street, unfortunately it's slightly longer at the moment as the access to the station is being reconstructed. The city centre is again 10-15 minutes with the bonus the Eder has good access to the S & U bahn and tram system. Check in was quick, the excellent Vadim on reception gave us a friendly welcome, really nice in remembering us from last year. Our room, 27 was a large double, certainly much better than the twin we had last year, the room equipped with plenty of storage, flat screen TV with English channels, safe and a shower en-suite. The room was probably more functional than outstanding but was ideal for our one night stay. Staying on a B & B basis, breakfast was taken in the restaurant on the ground floor consisting of standard continental fayre. Check out was straight forward and they kindly stored out luggage before our evening flight. The Hotel Eder is what I'd call a honest hotel, reasonably priced, you get what you pay for. There are some downsides, for example there's no lift and the street it's situated on isn't the most attractive, there was also some commercial noise (bin collection) in the morning. That said if you are after a good base to explore Munich after catching the train from the airport, the Eder ticks the boxes, recommended!
Rooms are somewhat small but location makes up for this. Staff friendly and helpful. Ask for room on first floor as there is no lift. Breakfast good and ample. Only a few minutes walk from the central train station.
