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.
How to Get There
I always stay at the Charles since I first discovered it, as a frequent traveller to Munich. Luxurious and comfy rooms, great location, outstanding staff and very nice restaurant and bar. In my opinion much better than the grander more traditional hotels in Munich where I have previously stayed
I had excellent stayed at the hotel. The hotel service is exceptional.
The staffs are great and well trained to service you without hesitant.
The rooms we had was on higher floor which take the beautiful of the opposite park.
The hotel is easy access within walking distance to KarlsPlatz and MarienPlatz
I would definitely be back when I am in Munich.
After considerable research, we chose The Charles Hotel for our 4-night stay in Munich. We were traveling with another couple. All four of us have had management careers in global Fortune 500 companies, and our standards for a hotel and service are quite high. With that said,The Charles Hotel exceeded our expectations, especially in terms of service. The rooms are quite large for European standards and are beautifully and newly decorated with floor-to-ceiling views. We stayed in a Standard Room and were quite satisfied. The lobby is beautiful and the restaurant is intimate and gorgeous with extremely friendly service. The concierge staff (Anne and Antonia) are to be highly recognized since their outstanding service went far and beyond the normal standards to make our stay comfortable despite the loss of our luggage for our 4 nights. The location of the hotel is excellent, just a couple easy walking blocks away from the train station, hop on/hop off bus and major shopping (Galleria). The hotel is across the street from a small park with a fun, Bavarian Biergarten. Without a doubt, we would stay again at The Charles Hotel and cannot recommend it more highly.
Amazing hotel property. I think this is the place to stay in Munich. Breakfast is exceptional. Dinner was a delight. The bar and the music was a delight. The hotel has a beautiful view from the rooms overlooking the park. Location was great. Out of the noise of other locations but easily to get around. Also, great walking around the hotel.
Our luggage was misplaced in route to Munich from Florence, Italy. Both Anne Hollaender and Antonia Schmidt went out of their way to resolve the situation with the airline and did everything possible to assist. Both individuals as well as the entire Hotel staff provided superior service during our stay and prevented a stressful situation from ruining our vacation experience in Munich. Both Anne and Antonia, in particular, deserve special recognition for the exceptional customer service they provided. We were most impressed by The Charles Hotel and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
