Where We Stayed: Munich

Wunderlocke

This was another hotel with rooms that were more like apartments. In this one, there was a large, modern bathroom with a walk-in shower (no tub),a small living/dining/kitchen area, two steps up to one bed, and another bed in the loft.

With the exception of the bathroom, it felt like we were living in a tiny house, and I had conflicting feelings about that. On one hand I was really impressed by the ingenuity of the design: two of the steps were also drawers! The kitchen was small but still had a washer/dryer, stovetop, dishwasher, microwave, and utensils—even a cheese grater! On the other hand, it felt claustrophobic at times. Why have a cheese grater when there is basically no room to use it? Two steps (in the right of the pic) have drawers, but the remaining ones don’t give much head room to sit down.

Also, as you take the stairs to the loft, you reach the point where you have to hunch over so that your head doesn’t hit the ceiling. And you must remain that way while in the loft.

The kids adapted, but there were a couple of bumped heads in the beginning. Definitely consider the loft experience of whoever would be sleeping up there.

The other bed is two steps up from the dining table. It sits on the floor, which was a little odd and not always comfortable. DH and I decided that no 40-somethings were consulted on that decision!

Because of the beds and the limited head room by the table, we tended to sit on the room’s couch a lot, which is fine, but maybe a bit limiting. There were chairs and couches in the elevator lobbies that seemed to get more use than I have seen in other hotels. We joked that maybe the guests wanted to sit somewhere other than the in-room couch!

There was AC in this room that worked quite well. We also made use of the dishwasher and washer/dryer successfully with the help of Google Translate. The fridge came in especially handy.

There is an outdoor pool that looked pleasant, but we never got around to using it.

The neighborhood was not what you think of when you imagine a European city. That’s because it was a sort of industrial office area. There were two big office complexes near us, so this isn’t the place for you if you want to soak up a neighborhood vibe. We did have what we needed, though: within a few minutes’ walk we could reach 2 supermarkets. There were also a couple of restaurants. For public transit, we were about 5 minutes from an U-bahn station and 10 from an S-bahn.
