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
Our room was ridiculously beautiful. The design was unreal. The staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful.
Loved my breakfast on the balcony.
We also arrived during a private event and were treated with kindness and patience. The font desk attendant was also a waiter during the event. She was grace under fire.
The daytime front desk attendant (Frankie’s mom) was incredibly kind, friendly and patient. She always had time for us.
The location is fantastic also. Walking distance to everything.
We loved our stay.
we stayed in the hotel for two nights, the rooms nice and specious.
there is a bar in the hotel that was actually closed one of the nights due to "private party" so we were not allowed in. the is no lobby so i had to seat in the room all the time i was in the hotel. the one night i was in the bar we felt unwelcome and i actually preferred to stay in the room. I am happy it was for only two nights.
There was no hot water in our room at night, and we had been looking forward to showers after a long flight into Munich that day. When we sought help for the situation, no one was at the front desk, and no one answered the phone when we called the number in the information brochure. It was only 9:30pm, but there was no one at all to help us.
The lack of hot water may have been a relatively small issue in the grand scheme of things, but we were surprised by the complete absence of staff or service, given the premium price of the hotel. There would have been no one to turn to had we had an overflowing toilet, a problem getting into our room with the electronic key, or any other sort of urgent situation.
We had to wait until the morning to see if there was hot water, and fortunately, there was. When we mentioned the situation upon check-out later that day, the receptionist told us we were lucky we had hot water that morning, as it's often in the morning that they don't have hot water. She did not seem surprised that they had a problem generally with the hot water supply.
The hotel refused to give us any refund, offering only a room upgrade on our next visit. But we will certainly not be staying at this hotel again: for the sort of price one pays for Flushing Meadows, one would expect a steady supply of hot water and some level of service. Instead, we were met with a complete lack of assistance and an apathy about the comfort of the hotel's guests.
