Why stay near the Welt? It is easy enough to get there on U-Bahn. Stay in the centre of town and enjoy everything Munich has to offer.

Hotel New Orly was good. Off main streets - quiet place. Good continental breakfast. About 10km away. Took Uber from hotel to Welt on ED Day.

If the Ms. or SO is joining, take wash clothes - they aren't "standard" in European hotels.

Get google translate, download German for offline use. Let your cell phone camera translate signs for you without data. We are going to Denmark, Norway, and Iceland next month, and that stuff works, and is cool. (I wish they were all on the Euro, rather than dealing with multiple currencies.)

In Zurich we stayed in the Four Points by Sheraton Sihlcity Zurich. It's a nice "business hotel" in a shopping mall and has it's own private parking with nice wide spaces. It is located outside of the city center but it is directly on the Tram line with easy access to downtown.

If you are buying a car worth over 70k stay at the Vier Jahreszeiten Hotel and take a taxi to the welt. World class hotel close to all the best in Munich.

Why all the suggestions for hotels some distance from the Welt?

Especially for someone on there 4th ED.

OP - when are you taking delivery?

We are staying here: https://www.leonardo-hotels.com/leon...l-hotel-munich on June 27 and 28, taking delivery on June 28, before driving out on a 2 week tour. We plan to take the courtesy BMW shuttle from the airport, walking to BMW Welt from the hotel, and taking the train into Munich to enjoy some nightlife (if we don't suffer from jet lag).

Oh, BTW, 2018 M550 in low 70s!
