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
I was there for 2 Nights in a Studio Room. It feels bigger than expected for this Size (Standard Hotelroom Size) and what i loved it's really made with love to detail. The lighting is super cozy and warm the bathroom super modern. You have coffee in your room with nice espresso cups, a Boom for bluetooth music, the bed was super comfy. Its all those tiny things that makes this feel like home. AND the location is SUPER PERFECT. Direct access to the underground loads of nice cafes and restaurants in 2-5min walking distance. It's not the touristic part of munich but where the locals hang around. Super Nice.
The was smaller than expected but super nice as well as the staff that is more cool and hip fresh than conservative hotel like what i really liked!
I stayed here for business and I have to say it might not really be an ideal place for business but all the services were on point. It’s a little weird when you first walk in as it appears to be an old factory of some sort but the rooms have really well and high quality finishes. I stayed in room 307 which was designed by the handy man of the hotel and I have to say the shower in this room is absolutely amazing... it has a rain shower like I’ve never seen before. The water drops from about 2-3m above you! The breakfast in the morning is very good and there is parking offered on site. The location is very good as well as it is only about a 15min walk to downtown. All around definitely a good place for a stay as a couple on a leisurely trip!
I am so sorry to write that, but staying there was not great!!! This design Hotel is more like a Hostel . The service super trippy and the worst, the maid challenging. If she showed up cleaning the room, it still looked undone.
The design in this place looks more like it's from the flea market, the bathroom is ok but missing robe..And the worst of it the Hotel closed the entrance door at 3.30 am and NO ONE told me that!!!! AND NO ONE TOLD ME HOW TO GET BACK INTO THE HOTEL !!!! There was no door bell, no front desk and no sign how you get back into your hotel after they close it!!!! NO I will never ever stay there again !!!
Once you arrive into this exquisite boutique hotel, in my opinion, a 5-star experience, you will be invited into a dark entry way, with black curtains, thinking you are auditioning for a play or for the big screens and overwhelmed by the personalities that have walked before you--to the exclusive elevators, solid with a copper twist to your right, watch your back and shoulders, if you hit it, you will be bruised. You arrive at the 4th floor to the gorgeous reception, filled with orchids, exotic, white and another soft color. When you check-in, you will be presented with an electronic key, you will be escorted to your room, however, I recommend you learn quickly how to operate the room temperature because, the room can get cold in an industrial building with very high ceilings. I really loved the shampoo, cypress, the fragrance is lovely, the body wash is unique, too! Quickly rest so you can walk to the city center, Marienplatz, look for Hofbraeuhaus, short walk, 15 minutes max. You can enjoy like Bavarian music and good food with lots of laughter and fun. I recommend catching a taxi from the Four Seasons, taxi stand to your hotel, not far at all. You may need an alarm clock for your stay, however, the telephone in your room has a clock. This boutique hotel has a famous bar on the top floor, it is usually packed, so, get there early. Have fun!
The Flushing Meadows is a design jewel. Plus a highlight in hospitality service. Perfect in style, Cleanness, offers, service ! The staff is amazing. More than attentive and caring. You feel like at home. This is now my first choice in Munich !
