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
Spent a lazy late afternoon at the Weinwirtschaft! Although the menu is rather small (regular changes), it is composed of very creative & yummy dishes! Had the Basil Soup, Tuna Carpaccio, Salmon Tartare - georgous!!! Try the Lugana - or another one from the wine list. This place specialized in wine ... but of course Bavarian Beer is always an option.
I found the staff really nice and helpful. That made much of the experience nice. Room was a "comfort" room but it was pretty tiny. Still fit two people with some creativity. Rooms were very clean. It was odd for us to not stay in a European hotel without a tea kettle. It's such a helpful item to have for those who are on a budget and want to bring their own coffee or prepare cereal using a mug and spoon. Breakfast buffet was kinda pricey and have had better for less or the same amount of money in Munich. Only had it once for that reason. You can get around fairly easily walking to the underground a few blocks away. There's also a natural market within a couple of blocks and several restaurants.
Very closed from U bahn station,good location for busines, animated area around , very clean,polite hostes,interesting room,good breakfast, italian restaurant inside.
Negative aspect: there isn't keetle and coffe/tea facilities.
We stayed at Acrona the first week of October for the final nights of Oktoberfest. We found the hotel easily and it was just a short walk from the nearby Rotkreuplatz metro station. Our check-in was easy, and the staff were friendly and spoke English. The hotel is located nearby some shops, restaurants, a small beer garden, and a casino.
We were impressed with the size of the hotel room. The bathroom was bigger than some hotel rooms I've stayed in! It was nicely decorated and very clean. The mattress, pillows and bedding were comfortable and good quality. The room was quiet and had good curtains that darkened the room.
The hotel offers a free washer and dryer (soap provided), which is great for people like us who were backpacking. However, this was also the one area we had issues and nearly hurt the review score. We were late getting in and tried to do laundry before an early flight to the next country. We didnt find out that the dryer was broken until after we had already ran the wash cycle. We had to use the towel warmer and radiator in our room to dry our laundry.
I would definitely want to stay in this hotel again if I ever return to Munich. It was very comfortable and clean. Just get your dryer fixed (or at least put up a sign)!
Our stay at this hotel was excellent. The rooms are small but surprisingly quiet and cozy, given that the hotel is on a busy main road. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food in the restaurant is wonderful! We had the salmon and side dishes, which we loved. Others had the beef filet and fried gnocchi- so delicious they ordered another side of gnocchi. Breakfast and lunch were also absolutely delicious. The baked goods are so yummy. The hotel is located near the subway so you can get to the sights but we would have preferred something closer to Marienplatz because we had so little time in Munich.
