We stayed in this hotel during Oktoberfest. This is directly across from the train station and is loud, but amazingly, when you close the window it shuts out 99% of the noise. The tempurature was nice when we were there so we did not need to keep the window open, this is something to consider during the summer. But for Oktoberfest it was great, it was a short walk to the festival grounds. In addition the hotel was centrally located to most of Munich's sights. We were able to walk to most attractions within about 15 - 20 minutes. The breakfast buffet was amazing, but not free, in fact it was pretty expensive ($20+ Euro each), but due to the location of the hotel, you don't have to eat there.
