A 20-minute drive from the center of Munich and 15 from the airport, this modern 255-room hotel makes a handy Bavarian base. It predominantly caters to business travelers, but it’s chicer than your average conference crash pad, with a soaring glass atrium, a Cinq Mondes spa and a bright and breezy bar that serves German wine and Bavarian snacks. And if such traditional touches as cowbells, dirndls, wooden benches and cowhide chairs don’t evoke a sense of place, the hotel’s beer garden and glühwein huts put the spotlight on its Bavarian address.
Bed and Bath
Natural materials (dark wood floors, slate bathroom tiles, sandstone showers) complement an earthy brown color scheme in the guestrooms, and the cunning use of space incorporates an abundance of storage, large countertops in the bathrooms and built-in tile benches in the showers. Etched glass windows separate the bedrooms from the bathrooms. There are clever tech amenities including heated bathroom mirrors, room lights controlled from the headboard and reading lights that extend from lamps. In place of minibars, (reasonably priced) vending machines are set into recesses in the corridors. Each Presidential Suite has a sauna with a window looking out onto its balcony, and they all connect to a private meeting room with a separate entrance, toilet and kitchen counter.
A small French bistro is set up on one side of Stephan’s, the bar named for the local brewery. Sip drinks by the fire in the wintertime or head to the patio in the summer months, when the space is transformed into a traditional beer garden. For creative fine dining, reserve a table at Redox. Overlooking the biergarten, this intimate restaurant seats just 30 people, and the menu indicates where the local produce was produced. Viktualien, named for the historic market in Munich, offers a substantial hot and cold buffet breakfast. Dolce’s spa has three saunas, a pool with auto-massage beds and four treatment rooms, and the therapists use organic products and techniques from the Parisian Cinq Mondes Spa.
In the Area
Munich is a 20-minute drive away; the Bavarian capital has a small town, medieval feel. Watch a soccer game at Allianz Arena, the stadium built for the 2006 World Cup; head to Ingolstadt Village for outlet shopping at name brand stores; take a tour of the world’s oldest brewery, Weihenstephan, where people from around the world come to learn brew mastery; check out the Deutsches Museum’s historical hangars and aircraft at Flugwerft Schleissheim airfield; and stroll the beautiful gardens of the Oberschleissheim Palace.
How to Get There
We stayed here recently for 3 days. The pluses are many. The room was clean, spacious, and it had a comfortable bed. The toilet was separated from the wash area and I like that. For my taste, however, I could not adjust the temperature to what I would have liked. As a result, it was about 10 degrees too hot. I realize this is my American AC loving standard, but I like AC when it's 90 outside. I'd also suggest getting the breakfast included. It was varied and excellent. In the bar and restaurant, expect typical hotel prices. As for location, if you intend to tour around Munich, you will need to take a train or have some other transport. In the area itself there are a few restaurants and a super market across the street. I would stay here again.
The hotel is nice, the lobby and bar area are inviting. Breakfast is good. The bed is comfortable. Wifi had a good upload/dload speed.
The rooms however need improvement. The a/c was heating my room even though I turned it down to the lowest temperature level. I had to keep the window open which let all the noise from the motorway in. The cars could be heard with closed windows too (I was on the second floor). The lights in the bathroom made cracking noises all the time, whether turned on or off. There was a terrible smell in my room after it had been cleaned the first day.
Checkin and checkout took some time as there was a conference going on and it was busy. This being a conference hotel, I would expect a higher number of receptionists to be available when such events are being held.
We’ve stayed in many 4 star hotels in Germany but this one must be one of the best ones. Value for price is unbeatable, we all loved it and are looking forward to staying here again. Breakfast buffet was awesome, hotel has a great spa and one of the best hotel gyms and is located in a quiet part of the city but still close to highway.
I was staying in Infinity hotel couple of days within the conference. Everything worked extremely well and room was very comfy and clean. Very good conference resort for medium sized events and good service as well.
Was there for a conference. Good hotel and facilities, very nice SPA area and Facilities (Gym, Pool). The only think keeping it from a rating of 5 in my opinion is the remote location, which they cannot really change...
