Overview

The Lowdown

Inspired by the Belle Epoque hotels in the Cote d’Azur, Rocco Forte’s Munich five-star ably mixes old and new. Spacious rooms open onto living areas with French balconies, Bavarian limestone balconies and Italian toiletries. The property itself offers a comfortably elegant respite from city sights in the immediate vicinity, so guests can take it all in easily and return to chill out in the ultra-modern indoor pool, sauna and spa area, as well as at the hangout-friendly rooftop terrace and the refined Italian restaurant, Davvero.

In the Area

You’re perfectly situated for exploring Munich’s major attractions, such as the neo-Gothic New Town Hall’s glockenspiel, which springs to life with chimes, bells and figures of Bavarian knights, who spin as they perform a joust and dance. The show takes place at 11 am daily (plus at noon and 5 pm in the summer). Or wander through the Viktualienmarkt, one of Europe’s best gourmet food markets, before you toss back a gigantic mug of frothy bliss under the cross vaults at the Hofbräuhaus, Munich’s legendary beer hall. Also check out nearby sites like the Lenbachhaus (AKA “The Blue Rider”) Museum, recently reopened after a four-year renovation; the Marienplatz city center, and the Residenz Palace design museum at the edge of old town. The historically significant and visually striking Olympic Stadium is just a 10-minute drive away.

two days business trip
Nudzeim R

Very very nice hotel. Rooms are perfect, comfortable and clean. Spa area perfect.
Location is very good, 10 min walk to heart of the city. View from the room is amazing.
Breakfast is very good, but on a second day of my stay the personal were completely lost and unorganized. I was waiting ordered fried eggs for twenty minutes and eventually gave up. On contrary the service day before was bespoken. one more little thing that ruined the perfect feeling was that room service did not change or refill the bathroom amenities on the second day of my stay. Pity because everything else was perfect. The price is on the higher end but overall impression is that I would gladly come again.

Great hotel

The Charles Hotel is located in a park like setting close to all the attractions as well as within walking distance to the train station. The rooms are well appointed and the service is wonderful. All in all this hotel is perfect! I can highly recommend The Charles to anyone without hesitation!

We have stayed at The Charles on multiple occasions and have always had a wonderful experience. The location is convenient and close to the center of town but also very quiet. The rooms are nicely appointed, modern and good sized. The staff is professional and courteous and extremely attentive. The breakfast buffet is outstanding! This is one of our favorite hotels and we travel a lot. We definitely will use it again.
