Where to Stay in Munich
By far the most popular area to stay in Munich is the streets around the main train station (Hauptbahnhof), particularly those to the south and south-east. This place also has the highest concentration of hotels. Two key benefits: the best public transport access in the whole city and walking disance to the old town (Althstadt), which starts at Karlsplatz, one block from the train station.
There are also many good hotels in the old town itself, although they are generally targeting the higher end of the market. If you look for comfort and have the budget, this is the perfect place (good deals can still be found when booking well in advance).
