Hi
I'll go to Munich in October and I dont know in which area stay. I'll be 3 nights so is not a lot of time but Im following the rule of the 3 nights everywhere I'll go.
I dont care if I have to take the train to go to the main area attractions.
Any advice?
Thanks a lot !
Monica

    Be aware that Oktoberfest is on for the first part of the month and no cheap hotels will be available anywhere in Munich during that time. Otherwise
    www.booking.com
    will give some reliable options, many of the lowest prices are close to the main railway station, while not the best part of town it's easy to reach the main sights by public transport and the places we have used have all been OK.
    Have fun!

    As long as you are not staying in Munich during Oktoberfest, I would recommend the Hauptbahnhof area. The hotels tend to be cheaper but still nice and the location is ideal for visiting sites in and around the city.
    If you are staying during Oktoberfest, I'm afraid you will have to pay wherever you go in the city.

    b.t.w. Oktoberfest ends on October 7th this year !

    I agree about the Hauptbahnhof-area having a lot of cheap hotels and excellent access to transportation. Its not a dangerous area like in other cities, just some nightclubs and 6-shops like you find them also in other parts of the centre of Munich.

    We stayed at a very nice hotel close to the main station. It's called the Hotel Jedermann - not inexpensive, but the rooms are OK and they served the biggest breakfast buffet I've ever seen in many years of travel. It was right on a tram line, which made getting around the city very easy. It was about 10 minutes to the centre of town.

    I am going around 17th September also for 3 days and booked a hotel near the train station Le Meridien..hopefully it is nice. But the rates are very high as it is the nearing the start of Oktoberfest. Like any tourist, just explore as long as my legs stays in place.
