A light-filled lobby makes a first good impression, but Oktoberfest revelers value Brack's proximity to the beer-festival grounds, and its location—on a busy, tree-lined thoroughfare just south of the city's center—is handy for city attractions too. Staff are friendly and welcoming.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Some guests have reported that the smell of smoking, even in no-smoking rooms, can be quite strong.
The rooms are furnished in light, friendly veneers, have soundproof windows (a useful feature during Oktoberfest), and have amenities such as hair dryers--although they are all a little dated.
Bathrooms, too, are not quite up to the minute, although they are clean.
A small bright reception run by friendly, competent staff.
You can buy tickets for public transport from reception--handy.
The buffet breakfast, which lasts until noon, will prepare you for the day.
The hotel is walking distance from Oktoberfest, but for other destinations, it is also only a minute or two from Poccistraße U-bahn station.
Try nearby Goldmarie (1-minute walk), a modern, stripped back restaurant with authentic Bavarian specialities. Or there's Restaurant Mittendrin (3-minute walk), a charming modern bistro run by a culinary couple with pedigrees from some of Munich's top hotels.
Paulaner Bräuhaus (10-minute walk), a beer hall run by the brewery, is an authentic option for Bavarian food and drink. Or check out the Bahnwärter Thiel Cultural Center (8-minute walk) is a grungy, hip techno club and music and culture venue.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Brack is a comfortable, affordable choice for Oktoberfest attendees, and not bad for other travellers either, thanks to the keen pricing, long breakfast hours and quiet rooms.
