About Cristal

The Cristal enjoys a prime location in the city centre just five minutes’ walk from Munich’s main train station. An on-site restaurant and bar compliments this modern four-star hotel’s highly convenient setting.

Smart, functional guest rooms with light wood furnishings feature work desks, mini-fridges and flat-screen TVs. Some accommodations provide chairs; suites boast separate lounge areas and coffee machines.

Amenities include meeting rooms, laundry services and a guest safe. Parking and Internet access are offered at a fee.

A generous breakfast buffet is served in the chic ‘1912’ restaurant & bar between 6.00-10.30am. Lunch and dinner options are also available.

The Cristal hotel is a ten-minute walk from both Karlsplatz square and Theresienwiese, home of the famed Oktoberfest folk/beer-drinking festival.  The revered Hofbräuhaus drinking hall is just over a mile away.

Positive Reviews

Attentive staff members provide excellent service

The vast majority of visitors who've stayed here have been won over by the hotel's highly dedicated and supremely efficient team of employees. Reception personnel, with their impressive language skills and swift check-in procedures, earned the highest plaudits.

Central location is extremely convenient

Opposite the train station, next to the metro and right by a tram stop; it's easy to see why so many guests have declared this hotel's highly central location to be such an unmitigated highlight. Being a mere a ten-minute walk from the old town and the Oktoberfest site was also deemed a huge plus.

Comfortable guest rooms are very neat and tidy

Numerous guests have said the accommodations here exceeded their expectations, both in terms of presentation and overall standards of cleanliness.

Negative Reviews

You have to pay to use the hotel's Wi-Fi

It is fair to say very few travellers have been impressed by this hotel's policy of charging patrons for the privilege of logging-on to its Wi-Fi. Those who paid were dismayed to discover they still experienced signal issues.

Late night street noise can be an issue

The accommodations at the front of this property directly overlook the busy road which the hotel sits on. A great many guests who've stayed in these rooms have complained about being disturbed by ongoing noise late at night.

Neighbourhood is a little rough around the edges

A significant number of visitors have noted the area around the hotel, with its strip clubs and somewhat shady-looking bars, can feel a little edgy once the sun goes down. Some guests thought it an unsuitable place for families or couples to stay.
