Plane Spotting Munich

Holiday Inn Express Munich Airport
The Holiday Inn Express is reported to have a great restaurant and bar offering good quality food. Free wifi is available from the bar for 2 hours, after which the cost is 6 euros for 24 hours.
 
Location: ** is located on a 1 mile final to Runway 26L at Munich. The airport shuttle bus is free from the airport, but 5 euros each back to the airport. The shuttle runs on the hour from the hotel to the airport. The shuttle to the hotel picks up at 10 past the hour from terminal 1, 15 past from The Mac Forum area and 20 past from Terminal 2.
Spotting: **

Great views of the approaches to the Runway 26 parallels can be had from the hotel. 26R right traffic can be seen in the distance (flight tracker is required for ID) but the 26L approach passes almost directly above the hotel at around 300 feet. 

Room 211 gives excellent views described above, but any high level room facing to the rear of the hotel should be sufficient.

The hotel has no views of the actual airport.

Another report has the following information : the Holiday Inn Express at the end of the runway, it’s so close in fact that you can hear the wake vortices after an aircraft passes over on its final approach to runway 26L ,Runway 26R can be seen in the distance. The Hotel has two floors and odd numbered rooms from X39-X63 are the only rooms that work for a spotter. Rooms 239/241 and 251/253 have interconnecting doors if you are in a larger group

Photos: * See the photos and vdeo below of the great opportunities available from the hotel.
Value: ** Great value at approximately £55 for a twin room at weekends but more expensive during the week. Price does not include breakfast.

NH Munich Hotel
is conveniently situated only 4km from the airport. The hotel does offer a shuttle bus but there is a charge of 5 euros per person. The shuttle bus operates every 30 minutes but you should still contact the hotel to advise them that you require it.   
Location: ** Only a 10 minute shuttle bus ride from the airport offset slightly to the North of the Runway 26L approach on about a 1 mile final.
Spotting: ** Some rooms on the front of the hotel should have views of the final to 26L. Rooms on the back of the hotel should overlook the Runway 26R approach. Room 567 have confirmed views of Runway 26R. Windows on the corridors should also give views of the other runway not visible from your room therefore it may be useful to have flight tracking software, or a scanner.

Novotel Munich Airport
Is the nearest hotel to the famous viewing mound which is only a short walk away from the hotel   
Location: *** A great location if you intend to spot from the viewing mound as the mound is only a short walk away
Spotting: **

Report below credit Roberto Fernando:

I stayed at the Munich Novotel for 3 nights this week and was allocated room 463 on the fourth floor and was opposite the LH maintenance, on the day of arrival they were using 26′s and with the help of planefinder or FR24 I was able to see what I wanted, but the next day they switched over to 08′s which made thing so much easier, only problem was when landing aircraft required were on 08L I had to time it just right to walk to the other side of the hotel to watch them sail by the window.

Room numbers for views of 08R/26L 455, 157, 459,461,463,465,467,469 and 471, and for 08L/26R 407,409,411,413,415,417,419,421 and 423.

The Besucherpark station is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel and I would say 20 minute walk to the mound. From the terminal area the bus 635 takes to to the hotel from bus area, stop number one, this is located near the airport control tower and the ride cost me €1.50 Euros on the first day then I noticed no one was paying the next two days as it was just a 10 minute bus ride, not that I had’nt paied as I had bought a day pass for trains and buses for my days out an about. I sure I have covered everything, oh yes room was very comfortable and clean :)

Photos: * No confirmed reports
Value: ** Good value from £65 for a twin room at weekends but more expensive during the week.
