Zum Jahreswechsel 2013/2014 habe ich vier Tage bei Sanna übernachtet und mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist gemütlich eingerichtet; die kleine Küche und das großzügige Bad haben Fenster. Der Kontakt war unkompliziert und sehr herzlich.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist ideal, um München zu erkunden. Man kann mit dem Bus oder auch zu Fuß (20 min) zum Pasinger S-Bahnhof gelangen und ist von dort schnell im Zentrum. Oder man nimmt die Straßenbahn und hat gleich noch eine kleine Stadtrundfahrt. In den Pasing Arkaden am Bahnhof kann man super einkaufen und seine Zeit verbringen.
Gerne würde ich wieder bei Sanna übernachten, wenn ich mal wieder eine Unterkunft in München benötige.
My small daughter especially loved Sanna's apartment: the loft, the little balcony, the low sky lights in the kitchen & bathroom which open up those rooms to the sky. We stayed a long time, the whole summer, & it was perfect for 2.
Public transportation is great from the 3rd zone there. We rode bus 57 from Benediktesrr. which is a block from Sanna's to Laimer Platz (took 11 min) where there is a great Rewe supermarket & then connected to the U5 or to other buses. If we rode bus 57 for four minutes in the other direction, we could get very close to the Tenglemann supermarket on Weinbergerstr. or ride the 57 for ten min to Pasing Bahnhof where you could catch the Sbahns & some long distance trains.
Once the tram, I think it was the purple #19, is up & running, that will be even better!
If you ride the U5 from Laimer Platz, you are maybe 10 min to Hauptbahnhof which connects you to everything! So it's pretty quick to get to Munich from Sanna's.
The bus stop after Sanna's stop is Westbad---one of the public pools. That was convenient with a 7-yr-old.
The really close beer garden which is next to Sanna's bus stop, Benediketstr., was super-convenient. Sometimes we came home, tired from Munich, & would get a half a roast chicken for 5.50€.
Sanna's apartment building is very well-maintained both in and outside & is very quiet & safe. There's 4 apartments per floor, 3 floors, & the residents, rather mature in age, were very kind and friendly to us. Sanna has a washing machine in the basement, and the apt. has wi-fi and TV in her apt on the top floor of the building.
The gem, we found by accident when we were riding bikes, is the little stream along the bike paths behind the aforementioned Tenglemann... Close to Pasing center-city. It is on the map--I just don't remember what those bike trails & foot trails are called. It's just beyond the Tenglemann when you're coming from Sanna's. The stream is quiet, gentle, & shallow. We waded in it for hours on hot July days as did a number of locals----but not like the crowds that the Isar River draws!! This stream is shaded by trees, relatively remote, & great for families with small children since this stream could never wash the kids away!! It's an inch deep in parts, and mid-calf in other parts. It's slow-moving & a place you can spend the entire afternoon if you bring a picnic. We wore our "aquatic shoes" which we'd brought from L.L.Bean at home. This stream was my favorite thing about Pasing.
Sanna was very communicative during the process of reserving the apartment, and arranging all of the details for our stay. The key handoff was not quite as organized, as she was out of town and had given me an incorrect phone number for the person who was going to let us in. This issue was resolved pretty quickly, and we were soon settled in. The apartment is in a good, safe neighborhood and only a 15 minute walk to the Pasing train station, not bad at all. Pasing is only a few S-bahn stops from the city centre. There are all sorts of shops, grocery stores, bakeries and places to eat in the area right around the train station as well.
The only real issue we had was that it didn't seem like the apartment had been cleaned before we arrived, which was disappointing.
All in all, we had a great stay in Munich and this apartment was a good home base for our trip.
Great place to stay, we had an amazing time in Munich
The flat is in a lovely location - quiet, peaceful and within easy walking distance (5-10 minutes) of all the local amenities, including the S-bahn. It was smart, clean and bright and airy. Sanna was a fantastic host and spent her time introducing me to the flat which contained everything I needed. She was also available when I needed information or help during my stay. I would recommend this flat to anyone wanting a peaceful stay in Munich but with all the local attractions on your doorstep.
