Munich, capital of Bavaria, is a high-tech hub and home to the world-famous Oktoberfest. It also has all the qualities German cities are famous for – it’s clean, safe, organized and filled with museums, theaters, opera houses and elegant restaurants – yet it’s also known for a distinct bohemian vibe not found elsewhere in Germany. As a European center for art, music, architecture and science, there’s certainly more to enjoy here than just the beer – though trust us, it’s as good as they say.
The Flushing Meadows Hotel & Bar is just as hip as the city it calls home. With a trendy bar attached to the hotel, you’ll be able to mingle with the locals and learn about the city’s vibrant culture without even having to step foot outside. The rooftop terrace also means that you’ll be able to enjoy panoramic views, giving you an even better idea of where you’re at. When you do finally make it outside, you’ll be in an incredible area; the hotel’s neighborhood of Glockenbachviertel is popular among locals but still within walking distance of the main tourist areas – talk about a perfect address.
The Flushing Meadows studio is a chic, cozy room with 215 square feet and a plush queen-sized bed. The décor is effortlessly cool, with ultra-contemporary furnishings and an understated, yet playful, color palette.
Amenities- Flat-screen TV- Wi-Fi- Air conditioning- Electronic safe- Organic bath amenities
Located in the trendy neighborhood of Glockenbachviertel, the hotel is surrounded by lovely restaurants, hip cafés and vibrant nightlife. You’ll be just a few minutes away from the beautiful Gärtnerplatz and a mere fifteen minute walk from the city center. Top attractions include St. Peter’s Church, New Town Hall, Nyphenburg Palace and the English Garden, to name a few.
How to Get There
Design hotel in an old building with fully renovated interiors. They 12 rooms and each one is decorated differently. The breakfast is limited but much better than your typical English breakfast from chain hotels. The bar is quite trendy, good music, open all day and with interesting house cocktails.
My husband and I stayed 3 nights here and was very happy with our hotel choice. The location is in a hip part of town close to many restaurants and bars yet still walkable to Munich's Altstadt/Old City. We stayed in room 305, designed by Munich local DJ Hell (if you see the room with black skeletons, that's the one we stayed in!). The room faced away from the street so it was really quiet. We loved the firm bed, the large bathtub and ample closet space. We didn't figure out how the lighting worked until the last day so the room was quite dim for most of the stay.
The room and hallway was so quiet, we were convinced no one else was staying at the hotel but we saw plenty of people enjoying breakfast in the morning.
Overall, we loved our stay here and recommend it for anyone looking for a Ace Hotel look & feel in Munich.
I recently stayed here for a business trip and really enjoyed my stay here. Great design, atmosphere, food & drinks and located close to everything. I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend others to as well if they’re in Munich 👌🏼
My wife and I spent four night here on a recent trip to Munich, as we loved the reviews we had read about the hotel. The location is on the fringe of the city in a semi-industrial are, which has become the cool spot for coffee, haircuts and bearded men. The city is a 20 minute walk away, so worked very well.
The style of the rooms are amazing with each room on the 3rd floor themed and designed by a local artist. Our room had an industrial feel and suited us perfectly, with open spaces, subway tiles and exposed concrete ceilings. The bed was reasonably comfortable and the TV was large and the bathroom, stunning. There was only one staff-member in the hotel that we saw, but they were super friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar was also very nice, although quite tight and not that well stocked
While there was a lot to like about the hotel, there were a couple of things they could improve. Firstly, the rooms facing the street are quite noisy and the glazing is quite thin. The hotel is also quite close to the local fire-station, so you get quite a few sirens throughout the night. The cleaning of the room was also very inconsistent and seemed to deteriorate the longer we stayed. There is also no room service.
Overall a very nice hotel with a couple of bugs to resolve.
I was there with my family in December. Was our 5th time and normally we prefer to come to this place in our often Munich trip. Now we will have to find another hotel.
A lot of things changed there. The structure and rooms are always nice but professionalism and service went deeply down. A lot of "small" thing happened ( an orange juice "fresh pressed" proposed in the breakfast menu but then coming an industrial one without any advise from waiter, in addition of waiting for half an hour for a very poor breakfast, the same breakfast that cost 20% more if you don´t book in advance- why???) but things that you can not accept when the price you pay is so high and the hotel has 4 stars. But the pick was at the check out: because i reserved with a card but I paid with another one and because they pre authorised (for the TOTAL amount of the stay) the reservation card, after paying all my stay I asked when they would have released the other card and they replied: in 10 days.....I couldn´t believe. I couldn´t understand why they shall block the entire amount after I paid everything and moreover i need that credit on my card....for them was all normal. And only after 30 min discussion and 2 phone calls at the manager who was not present, they finally called the service cmpany to ask to relase the pre authorisation. Sorry, I travel a lot in my life and I never had such problems. Adieu Flashing Meadows
