A friendly face with a genuine smile is so welcoming, and the angelo has got this spot on. After an exceptionally early easyJet flight from London (England) to Munich (Germany), followed by a train and a walk, it was definitely needed. I can hand on heart say that I’m still not a fan of early mornings.
Service with a Smile
Unlike me, the staff are definitely morning people, and day or night people actually. They were the real highlight of my two night stay in this contemporary hotel in Munich. Their bi-lingual talents merely complimented the already fantastic customer service I received within the first five minutes of my stay. Check-in was swift, their knowledge of nearby attractions and transport was excellent, and they were more than happy to assist with any of my questions.
My bedding was clean and white (the way I think it should be). Red and yellow drapes add a cheery splash of colour to the room. I particularly liked the many pictures in the hallways, especially the black and white montage in the Jazz Bar near the reception area.
The Foodie Star
Breakfast for the healthy inclined was great; fruit, yoghurt, muesli and more. For the traditional English lover there was an array of cooked goodies; sausages, eggs, beans and bacon. Pancakes and syrup, a tower of breads and pastries of every kind you can imagine, cold meats and cheeses – I don’t think there was any one breakfast item missing. Do you know the best thing? It is a buffet meaning greedy munchers like me, can sample it all – waistband permitting of course. The hot and cold drink selections were just as varied and delicious. I definitely rated the green tea (it’s healthy so it cancels out the naughty food, right?).
The Extra Mile
This hotel is a good thirty minute walk from the centre of Munich. It’s an easy, straight and pretty route. I found it completely safe day or night. However, if you have a lot of bags/you’re lazy/find walking hard, I’d recommend you take advantage of the great transport in the city. The train stops at München-Leuchtenbergring station, which is a five minute walk from the hotel. There is also a nearby tram stop. The hotel is next to a main road so there are plenty of taxis. Although I was concerned when I first saw the busy road, I didn’t actually hear any traffic noise from my bedroom.
I would definitely recommend hiring a bike for your stay – it brings the journey to the city centre down to about ten/fifteen minutes, following flat dedicated bike lanes. There’s so much to look at as you cycle along the streets. The only downside is there are no bike locking facilities at the hotel. I used the stands at the rear of the hotel, near Fitness First.
Although not massively centrally located, angelo Hotel Munich Leuchtenbergring is modern, clean and friendly. The staff and the breakfast are definitely worth your time.
Big thanks to VI Hotels at angelo Hotel Munich Leuchtenbergring for hosting my stay.
