Experience the many charms of Germany’s Bavarian capital at Ambiance Rivoli Hotel, a four-star pad not far from the city center. Situated just southwest of downtown Munich, the hotel is a mere eight-minute U-Bahn journey from the magnificent Marienplatz, the city’s bustling central square.
When you’re not getting lost along cobblestone streets or taking in the beautiful architecture, this contemporary hotel, with its East Asian-inspired design, makes for a comfortable base. Large breakfast buffets are served each morning, and Restaurant Jolie is on hand for international and Asian fare. Refreshing cocktails are served at the bar, and there’s even a spa available at the hotel’s sister restaurant, where you can properly soothe your weary sightseeing muscles.
Superior rooms boast sleek Asian- and Art Deco-inspired style, as well as parquet floors, marble-and-granite bathrooms and soundproofing.
Right next door to the hotel, the elegant Restaurant Jolie serves a selection of Asian and international fare, accompanied by a range of wines, spirits and cocktails.
Though a little outside the city center, southwest of downtown, Ambiance Rivoli Hotel is just five stops on the U-Bahn from the Marienplatz and Odeonsplatz. Munich combines a prosperous modernity with a strong sense of folk history, which is richly displayed in the Bavarian architecture of the neo-Gothic Rathaus, the old town hall, and the grand Frauenkirche. Make sure to venture north to visit the magnificent Schloss Nymphenburg, a vast baroque palace which sits among sprawling parkland and holds a number of museums.
How to Get There
I went to Munich as I often do and got a room on the street side, as I often have in other hotels in the city.
It is so loud with closed windows that I woke up because of traffic noise really morning. You hear cars and trucks rolling all the time.
In the Morning I asked the reception if they can do something about it (in German) by the time I come back in the evening. At night not only nothing was done but the receptionist wasn’t even informed. The lady in charge in the morning simply did nothing about this essential topic.
In addition there is a bad smell this second evening.
Really too bad as the rooms look nice and the breakfast room have nice big windows towards a garden.
But if you sleep poorly, that’s really bad !
This hotel was booked as part of a British Airways holiday package. It is in the district of Harras, which is to the south west of Munich, with less than a 5 minute walk to the S-Bahn (S7) and U-Bahn (U6) Harras Station, which gives easy access to the centre and all transport links. There are also bus stops for the X30 and 54 which are very slightly nearer and they connect with the Ostbahnhof in the east. The area is fairly quiet in the evening and certainly feels safe.
The reception staff were very efficient and friendly. Although I do try to speak German, they can certainly speak English. There is a small bar ( very reasonable prices ) with a friendly barman. I did not use the restaurant so cannot comment on the meals including their breakfast. There are cafes within 5 -10 minutes walk if breakfast is wanted outside.
The room ( standard double) was on the top floor and though not quite as well appointed as seen in some of the photos on the website, it was very clean, warm, certainly comfortable and very quiet. The bathroom was large with a large shower and seemingly never-ending hot water. There was also a good sized room safe and a refrigerator ( stocked with mini bar drinks ). The TV was large and did even receive HD programming from some of the various German TV stations. There were very few English language channels but I don't come to Germany to watch English programmes ! The rooms were cleaned every day to a very high standard. It was nice to have a relaxed checkout at 12.00 noon and the staff were more than happy to store luggage if ( as in my case ) ones flight is later on in the evening.
I understand that there is a sauna/hamam as part of the hotel but there was no information in the room concerning it.
This is a good hotel stay if you are having a short city break and I would certainly return again if I was in Munich.
This hotel was a surprise for us during our business trip to Munich. Already the lobby was very interesting with the huge wall painting. The rooms are big, the bathroom is also very spacious and nice. The location is right on the subway station, so you can reach any place in Munich quickly and inexpensive.
