Where to stay in Munich: budget accommodation tipsVou na Janela

if you are searching where to stay in munich, in Germany, you must be a little scared about the prices of accommodation in the city, right? Okay, so the Euro is soaring, but accommodation in Munich has always been expensive.

The reason is that Munich has few accommodations compared to the size and importance of the city. Just to give you an idea, Berlin has 1297 establishments registered in the Booking.com, between hotels, hostels and apartments. While Munich has only 529 establishments.

Munich is one of the most visited cities in Germany, stage of the famous Oktoberfest and an attractive place all year round. It’s hard to understand why there are so few hotels.

I must have been to Munich about 4 times, with time I started to find cheaper alternatives for accommodation. Valuable tips that I will share with you.

Where to stay in Munich


Munich is a huge city, which has an excellent metro system that crosses the city from end to end and goes to the airport. This makes it much easier when choosing where to stay in Munich, as you can opt for accommodation further away from the center and pay less.

The best place to stay in Munich is in Altstadt, the historic center of the city, where the Marienplatz, the Neues Rathaus, the Residenz Palace and close to the Englischer Garten are located. But on the other hand, the Altstadt is the most expensive area in Munich.

In this region, the hotel with the best value for money is the Hotel du Train, good, beautiful and not so cheap. The hotel is super cool, the decor of some rooms is reminiscent of an old train, with lots of mahogany and chrome details. It’s a nice experience.

Where to stay in Munich: Mercure Hotel München Altstadt

If you can invest a little more in hosting, I recommend Mercure Hotel München Altstadt, a great hotel, with an excellent location. As a chain hotel, the Mercure standard prevails, so we don’t have any negative surprises. I’ve stayed there and recommend it.

Another great hotel in the Altstadt is the Hotel Concorde, is a four star hotel that is well below other hotels of the same category in Munich. It’s worth looking at him carefully.

Outside the center of Munich, another area that has a good offer of accommodation is the neighborhood where the Hauptbahnhof, the central train station, is located.

In this region there is Metropol Hotel, a great option with easy access to the subway, is located in an area with a good range of restaurants and grocery stores. There is also the beautiful and cozy Bavaria Boutique Hotel that you can trust without fear.

Another very cool neighborhood in Munich is Maxvorstadt, it’s close to the Englischer Garten, so you’ll be able to do a lot on foot.

There you can consider the Hotel Erzgiesserei Europe, which in addition to being well located has excellent value for money. It is also worth looking carefully at the King’s Hotel CityStay and the excellent Ruby Lilly Hotel Munich.

Munich hostel tips


The offer of hostels in Munich is very limited, but we can find great options with a daily rate from 22 euros.

Smart Stay – Hostel Munich City – This hostel is super nice and pleasant, it has an excellent living area, the rooms are very clean and they have a good breakfast. It is close to the Goetheplatz metro station (lines U3 and U6).

Euro Youth Hotel Munich – This is another great hostel in Munich, it is next to the Hauptbahnhof (the central train station) and close to the Altstadt, excellent for those arriving by train. The hostel is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The nearest metro station is Hauptbahnhof (lines U1, U2, U4, U5, U7 and U8).

Smart Stay Hotel Station – It is a mix of hotel and hostel, it is also close to the Hauptbahnhof, with great access and ease of transportation.

THE 4YOU Hostel & Hotel Munich – Maybe this is the cheapest hostel in Munich, it starts at 22 euros and it’s not the kind of cheap place. It is also close to the Hauptbahnhof.


How to make your accommodation in Munich cheaper


  • Do not stick to very central hotels, as long as the accommodation is close to a subway station, you will be well located. Except for the region where Munich’s international airport is located, as it is very far away.
  • Opt for hotels without breakfast, because the German breakfast is not very popular with Brazilians. Having coffee on the street you will spend much less if you were to pay for the hotel’s coffee.
  • If you’re going to Munich during Oktoberfest, it’s best to book your hotel at least 8 months in advance. There are hotels that are already full 1 year in advance.
