Truth time: I stalked this property for two months before booking our stay. I saw that the Moxy would open in October of 2019, and kept an eye on the website to check prices. It turned out to be cheaper than the hotel I'd originally booked, and since I could earn nights by staying here, I canceled the other reservation and confirmed a room here. Here are a few tips for those traveling in, which I hope you find helpful. - If you're coming from the airport, get a train ticket and hop on the S-8 S Bahn train from Flughafen Munchen to Ostbahnhof (Munich East train station). You can take the S1 train, as well, it'll just take you longer - Once you exit the train at Ostbahnhof, go down the stairs and head in the direction of the Friedenstraße exit. You'll see signs along the walls to guide you - Go up the stairs at the Friedenstraße exit. Once on the street, you'll see a car dealership in front of you (it was a Mazda dealership in December of 2019) - Cross the street towards the dealership, and turn left - Cross the street again at that corner (onto Haager Straße), and turn right - Walk down Haager Straße. You'll pass a few car dealerships, a taxi company, a restaurant (Palette in December 2019) and a Whole Foods-type grocery store. - Go past the first hotel entrance you see on the left - it's the Residence Inn, and it's the only signage you'll see at that point - Round the corner, pass the staircase and enter the ground-level entrance for Moxy. Take the elevator up to the lobby level to check in I'm not gonna lie - it felt like a long walk when we arrived. It was after 8 pm, it was dark, we were hauling a hundred bags and we were tired. My husband was sure we'd taken a wrong turn, and we did end up going through the Residence Inn lobby before seeing the entrance to the Moxy across the way. But once you get the hang of it, you'll see it's not so far from the train station, which is an easy walk. Check in was quick and easy, which was nice, as I'd mentioned we were jetlagged at that point. Our room was on the 4th floor, and we liked the feel of it and the building itself. It's definitely more of a "younger" hotel, not as tight as a traditional Marriott property. The walls were concrete, which made it much more quiet and peaceful. The toiletries were in bright pink bottles, the hair dryer was also bright pink, there was no closet or wardrobe to speak of, and there was no phone in the room. We did go down to the bar once during our stay, on our first night, actually. We'd planned on grabbing a few snacks, and maybe some beers to take back to the room. Instead, we ended up staying at the bar, chatting with Thomas, for almost 3 hours. We started with nachos (who goes to Munich and orders nachos, for crying out loud?), and soon added the meat lover's flatbread and the sausage and sauerkraut. We needed food to soak up the many beers and "welcome drinks" we had while sitting there. We were there for five nights, and we were very co
First of all, the hotel was nice. Friendly staff on the front desk and the room was modern and spacious with a large bathroom and kitchenette. Breakfast was great considering the current Covid situation. The hotel put in place pretty good sanitation and distancing measures alongside the breakfast buffet. My one issue was with housekeeping. I was informed on check-in that the room would only be cleaned every 3 or 4 days due to the pandemic, which was understandable enough. However, the room wasn't cleaned at all or emptied of trash until the last night of my seven night stay, and that's only because I asked for fresh towels at the desk. To make things more ridiculous, on the day I was due to check out (before 12pm) the cleaning staff interrupted us three times between 8am and 10 wanting to clean the room. When I mentioned we would be checking out later they seemed almost frustrated, and there was no apology. It wouldn't put me off staying here again, but better co-ordination is needed.
