Clipping at Berlin’s heels, the Bavarian capital of Munich is about much more than Oktoberfest
these days (although that’s still pretty important, too). With its chic
boutiques and cool new restaurants, this is a beautiful and historic city that’s having a
Opened in 2014, arcona LIVING MÜNCHEN takes
inspiration from the building’s former guise as a cinema, sprinkling
some movie magic throughout its contemporary rooms, via statement
artwork and theater-style red curtains. There’s no popcorn on the menu in the restaurant though, where Bavarian classics line
your stomach, before an evening sampling the local beers.
It’s lights, camera, action (so to speak) in the 94
guestrooms, thanks to the statement artwork inspired
by the building’s cinematic roots. Behind the iconic red curtains,
you’ll find city views worthy of the big screen.
you’d expect – or perhaps hope – of the home of Oktoberfest, the
facilities here include a beer garden. There’s also a contemporary
restaurant mixing Mediterranean classics with Bavarian delicacies from
its open-front kitchen. The cozy lounge is a great place to try out the
extensive wine list, too.
Munich’s upscale Neuhausen district, the hotel is perfectly placed for
visiting the Nymphenburg Palace and the Pinakothek der Moderne art
museum. In Munich, you’re never too far from a brewery, and nearby,
you’ll find the Spaten Brewery.
How to Get There
We stayed here 3 nights and were very satisfied. Although I would better go for some place in more central location, but the tube station is very close to Arcona and it is only 3 stations to Hauptbahnhof (6-7 euro with uber). The wine restaurant on the ground floor was also a nice touch, especially on the rainy night when we did not go out for dinner. The food was excellent, as well as the service and the choice of wines. As per the cons, the breakfast is quite expensive - 19 euro per person. We tried it once but were not impressed. I recommend you to go to Zoe's Kitchen nearby. They have good breakfast options very reasonably priced.
I stayed two nights for business. the smell in the room was terrible, no facility, small rooms. I had to windows for hours in january cold.
only positive thing is restaurant. I may say you have many bettr alternatives in Munich.
nIce rooms and good sleep, beds are great , shower and set up of rooms are good . No tea and coffee in rooms but hairdryer and shower toiletries available .
Breakfast was nice and usual continental and hot buffet of scrambled eggs , sausages and bacon .
Lovely fresh honey and fantastic orange rooibos tea. Nice atmosphere .
Reception staff very helpful.
Take train from the airport to the Nymphenburger Str.
Easy enough no problems .
Turn Right out of the station and a 10 minute walk .
Can't help feeling a little disappointed with our stay here. Initially quite impressed. Was greeted by a very nice gentleman who gave us a map of the area and directed us to our room but I have to say he was probably the only member of staff that actually acknowledged us. I was even shouted at for helping myself to a glass of water from a jug in the foyer, being told it was for a meeting. It was still stood there 11 hours later when we returned!
On Thursday evening, after climbing into bed after a long day sightseeing, unfortunately the fire alarm went off. Grabbing coats and boots headed down the stairs to be greeted by a gentleman saying ' Are you smoking in your room!' Not, get yourselves out safely. On getting downstairs found the bar to be in full swing, oblivious to the fact an alarm was going off in the building, and we was ushered into The Living Room, wish surprised me that we were left in the building but beat going out into the snow.
Turned out to be a false alarm but nethertheless felt it could've been dealt with better.
The bar was another little gripe as was closed for private parties two nights of our three night stay.
All in all though a nice, clean hotel. Complementary toiletries and water. Beautiful bar/ restaurant for breakfast. Just unfortunate we didn't have the chance to enjoy a last drink there in the evenings
Stayed for 1 night in Arcona Living Munchen. At first, I thought the room will be small because they had a small lobby, but voila! The room was clean and very spacious in minimalist design along with the kitchenette. Bathroom also quite large with bathtube and shower cubicle.
Breakfast was delicious and they also had fresh honeycomb.
