Overview

A contemporary Munich stay in a four-star cinema-turned-hotel, including breakfast and an optional dinner

The Lowdown

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
major moment.
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.

Rooms

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.

Dining

As
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.

Location

Located in
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.

Nice Hotel

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)!

Great Hotel/Wonderful Staff
Reviewed 2 months ago

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.

Best staff in any hotel we have ever stayed at.

(This hotel is only 3 stops on the underground to the centre of Munich using the U1 or U7 line.) Hi, we stayed 4 nights 9th Sept to 13th Sept 2918 room 417. From the moment we arrived at reception to the day of leaving, we found the staff First class. Nothing was a problem to them in making your stay enjoyable and would return to this hotel without question in the future. The restaurant was warm and comfortable and the food tastie and well cooked. I had to write this due to the pleasure we felt in staying with a hotel that has the X factor. Sorry it sounds corny, but this place works well for its guests. As we know some hotel promote this but don’t deliver. Thanks to all staff. Regards Tony & Connie

Arcona Living is a funky decorated hotel, super friendly staff who all speak good English and a short underground ride from the centre. The rooms have everything you want, even down to a shoe horn!! Breakfast was excellent, lots of choices and very tasty and served until 2pm. Location, it’s an hour walk, literally a straight line to the city centre, 40 min walk to the Olympic stadium. 8 mins on tube from centre. Locally some nice restaurants, bakery and organic supermarket. I would definitely stay here again, thank you Arcona Living for making our stay so lovely.
