Told me the possible choice of pillow when I checked out. That is after my suffering with the "felft nothing" pillow. The deco seems old, but actually should be new. No taste, no art or modern feeling although the room furnishing should be new. But overall is good due to it's great location and good pricing.
I don't want to give the impression that the Rilano is a luxury property, because it isn't. Price and location wise, it's a fairly standard business hotel with a nice bar and restaurant onsite.
That said, this makes any of the Marriott Courtyards and Hilton Garden Inns in the States look like roadside motor lodges.
The property was recently renovated, and rooms in the 5-story tower were excellent. Clean, spacious and comfortable with tasteful, modern furniture. Bathrooms were also first rate, with excellent water pressure, and plenty of hot water. No tub, but not a big deal in my book.
The on site restaurant was very reasonable for dinner, and the quality of the food was quite good. It's Germany, so you're still out 20-30 Euro for a decent entree, but that's to be expected most places.
All in all, a wonderful experience, and far better than I would have expected for similar money in North America. Highly recommended.
This hotel is a good solid choice if you prefer to stay just outside the downtown core. The price was very reasonable and it is located in Schwabing where there are many great pubs and restaurants to choose from within easy walking distance. The hotel is clean, well equipped and situated not far from the U6 Subway line right in the heart of this vibrant district. I would definitely recommend it.

Everything was nice. Quiet, clean room. Plenty of room for family of four. Satisfying breakfast. Beds are firm. My husband had trouble sleeping both nights. Ibis hotel next door has 24 hour bar & food until 10:30 pm. Some blinds in room were frayed so sun came into room very early. Area around hotel under construction but that did not bother us. Tram to city within 10 min walking. All day group metro pass was a bargain! Overall well worth money. Parking in hotel garage.

The room was very clean, the location is great, and the hotel staff are very friendly / courteous / helpful. The room I stayed in was exactly like the room shown in the photo advertisement. The building and some of the surrounding buildings are undergoing significant renovations, so at the time of my stay (early April 2015) there was a lot of construction work on many of the floors (hammerdrilling, electrical work, tiling, basically full demo of rooms and rebuilding). Unless you plan to be in your room between 7:30am and 5:00pm it shouldn't matter; however, during these times it can be noisy. I wasn't in my room much during the day so it wasn't an issue for me. Other guests there were very quiet. The room/city is very quite in the evening and it was enjoyable to sit on the balcony. The location is very safe and also convenient to travelling anywhere since a Strassenbahn stop and Ubahn station are right there. So many things in walking distance too. Room came with a few complimentary touches like bottles of water and prosecco and coupon for 5Euro to nearby bakery. Cable TV and radio. Overall great room for the price.

A nice enough hotel when you need a basic and typical hotel with a convenient suburb and quiet environment. The rooms are small but well organized and comfortable. The heating and air is central and quiet with a adjustable height shower that is plenty tall for anyone up to 6'3" without bending. Internet was difficult for me with free allotment of data running out quickly but 5 euro per day for internet after that is not so bad. Breakfast was OK and expensive, and I could not have dinner when the burger was 17 Euro. I went out as this was too much. The attached coffee shop is good and a better choice for budget minded people like me.
Chose this location to get away from the seedy area around the Hofbaunhof. History abounds with statues to Ludwig, King of Bavaria. Adjacent to Ludwig Maximilian University, the historical setting of the movie Sofie Scholl --- the Final Days.

I will definitely stay there again
The subway was right next to the hotel so easy to get into the citycentre
Schwabing is Munich's social and nightlife hub. Much of the activity takes place day and night on Leopold Strasse, which has the huge Siegestor. Nightclubs are crammed around Wedekindplatz. The city's most popular beer garden is at the Chinese Tower in the English Garden, while further north is Olympiapark, which was built for the 1972 Olympics.
