Our stay in Munich was short but sweet. We only had four days to explore the German city famous for Oktoberfest and Christmas markets, not to mention a storied history and a thriving culture.

With such limited time to explore this vibrant city, it was important for us to stay at a convenient hotel. But we didn’t want to sacrifice comfort for convenience. As an extra challenge, we needed to keep our costs in line since we’re traveling on a full-time basis.

Our goal was to find an affordable hotel that offers comfortable rooms as well as convenience to the top things to do in Munich. Luckily for us, we got the opportunity to stay at Citadines Arnulfpark Munich, an apartment-style hotel that satisfied all of our needs.

Located on a nondescript stretch just blocks from an S-Bahn train station, Citadines Arnulfpark Munich surprised us. We weren’t sure what to expect as we approached the corporate looking hotel, but our fears were allayed as soon as we checked in – thanks to a friendly clerk and the promise of 24/7 coffee.

Overall, we were more than satisfied during our two-day stay. Read on for details about what it’s like to stay at Citadines Arnulfpark Munich.

The Room

Loaded with features that we love, the Studio Deluxe room met our needs with fast Wi-Fi, a loaded kitchenette (with the cutest dishwasher ever), a flat-screen TV and, most importantly, a comfortable queen-sized bed.

The set-up was perfect for us since it had plenty of electrical outlets and a workstation, allowing us to do our blog-related business in our pajamas. (Shh – don’t tell anybody.)

Best of all, we slept well in the room – a basic requirement that is harder to find than it should be. The more we travel, the more we appreciate a comfortable bed!


Buffet Breakfast at Citadines Arnulpark Munich

Many nutritionists claim that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Though this claim is debatable, we are pleased to report that Citadines Arnulpark Munich offers a solid breakfast buffet full of options both healthy and splurge-worthy.

We especially enjoyed the breakfast’s cheese and meat selection, not to mention the plentiful packets of Nutella, our guilty European pleasure.

Nearby Food And Drinks

Although central Munich has a variety of restaurants serving both traditional German food and modern cuisine, sometimes we like to eat close to home and off the map. The same goes for drinking.

Coffee is our passion wherever we travel, to the point that finding a good third wave coffee shop is priority one when we arrive in a new city. Being in Munich, beer took precedence over coffee or at least tied in importance.

Beer At Augustinerbräu

This quintessential German beer hall is just a 9-minute walk from Citadines Arnulpark Munich, offering easy access to one of our must-visit stops in Munich. Although the staff treated us like tourists when they saw our camera, we didn’t let their attitude stop us from enjoying liters of beer in a festive beer hall that’s as big as an airport hangar.

Augustinerbräu is located at Landsberger Str. 35, 80339 München, Germany.

Burgers At Hans Im Glück

Just a 10-minute walk from Citadines Arnulpark Munich, Hans Im Glück is a neighborhood restaurant with surprisingly good burgers and fries. Though the restaurant specializes in mojitos and fruity cocktails, we ordered beer. We’ll be sure to order mojitos when we’re in Cuba, just like we chose to drink beer in Germany.

Hans Im Glück is located at Nymphenburger Str. 69, 80335 München, Germany.

Coffee At Mahlefitz Kaffeerösterei Und Café

Clocking in at a 12-minute walk from Citadines Arnulpark Munich, Mahlefitz Kaffeerösterei und Café serves the kind of third wave coffee that we have come to know and love plus a few desserts and free Wi-Fi. The hipster staff looks like they could be from Brooklyn, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Mahlefitz Kaffeerösterei und Café is located at Nymphenburger Str. 51, 80335 München, Germany.

Transportation And Logistics

Since taxis to Munich’s airport are expensive, a better option is to take the train to and from the nearby Hackerbrücke S-Bahn Train Station. The train costs €11.70 and takes 45 minutes.

The Marsstraße tram stops directly in front of the hotel, providing a cost-effective and convenient option for travel within Munich. It’s a quick ride to spots like the Viktualienmarkt and the Marienplatz.

Citadines Arnulpark Munich is located at Arnulfstraße 51, 80636 München, Germany.
