Novotel Munich City Arnulfpark

Before my flight back to Kuala Lumpur on Oman Air I decided to spend one more night in Munich so I would have the day of my departure in the city for some shopping, since Oman Air flights from MUC depart in the late evening.

Given that I arrived in the evening and had to fly out to Riga on airBaltic early the next morning I settled with – as I thought – a more budget friendly solution and made a reservation for the ibis Hallbergmoos, which is advertised as an airport hotel.
