The area around the train station is not the most picturesque section of Munich by any stretch, but it’s here that you can find centrally located, value-packed hotels like this one. The family-run Creatif Hotel Elephant is one of the better options for travelers who are on a budget but still want a bit of spark in their accommodations. The rooms here are not large but they were recently redone and have a bright, simple, contemporary look and top-quality beds. The refurbed bathrooms are small, too, but completely adequate. If you’re looking for a clean, comfortable, no-frills place that’s a cut above the average, this is a good choice.
