IT’S MY LIFELONG EXPERIENCE: Homosexuals guarantee good service. In the air and on land. Leave them an almost dead part of town and some month later it becomes an entertaining, lively (and suddenly expensive) quarter. The hotel „Olympic“ is not run by gays – but is situated right in the center of the predominantly gay „Glockenbachviertel“ of Munich. A small hotel in a reformed apartmant-house, not belonging to any chain, run by a charming lady, full of art, with a fabulous breakfast (says my daughter who just stayed there), with a lot of green around (für nice and safe strolls), only a 5 minute walk from townhall (just have a look at my map) and two subway stations around the corner. You will find very few mass-fabricated but a lot of nostalgic furniture (the „Olympic“ has just some dozen rooms), and the rates are reasonable: 95 – 180 Euro for a single (most of the time 120 Euro), 160 – 250 Euro for a double (usually 160 Euro), and 15 Euro for a safe place for a car.
