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.

My favourite Munich hotel and well worth a visit
We stayed at the Charles Hotel in Munich during our 50th wedding anniversary trip to Europe. The staff at the hotel were very helpful throughout our stay. The breakfast and dinners at Sophia’s restaurant at the hotel were excellent. The hotel is a short walk from the train station and just two stops to all the great sights and shopping. Overhaul a great experience.
Stayed for 7 nights. Our room was a superior deluxe room and had a great view of the Alte Botanischer Garten and the Frauenkirche, just like the website shows. The room itself and bathroom were great: very clean, and quiet. The room is absolutely 5 star hotel-worthy. Breakfast was included w. AMEX package, and this was excellent. The only downside is that its location requires a 10-15 min walk from hotel to the Altstadt and most shopping/restaurants. It is located in a quiet business/residential area.
