I liked this place quite a bit. I go to Munich on business quite a bit and just found this place - a local recommended it. Nicest hotel I've been to in the city. Might be on par with the Mandarin - but different, and certainly a heck of a lot cheaper. It is a smaller hotel with really nice... More

Dear JManly, thank you for your feedback. The rooms on the top floor are very nice, but also in the ones that are on lower levels have a beautiful view, specially if you take one that looks toward the market place. Best wishes, Doina Kocherhans Communication Manager More

I wanted to live in the Louis Hotel, it's just the perfect hotel, and it was so beautifully designed, so simple and minimalist, yet comfortable and gorgeous. It had everything I wanted (as for coffee, well do step out, the market is at your doorstep and a starbucks around the corner). Did I mention the perfect location too in Munich?... More

I stayed at the Louis for three nights in February 2011 and it was one of the best, most comfortable hotel stays I've had anywhere in the world. The Louis is definitely Munich's top hotel. While there is also a Mandarin Oriental just down the street, that hotel is very stuffy and stiff. The Louis is luxurious, but it is... More

On arriving at the Louis Hotel, which was my eighth hotel in five consecutive weeks of travel, we realised we had arrived somewhere we were really really happy to be.

I stayed here with my wife and two small children for three days. I thought the location, cleanliness of the rooms and the service all to be at the four/five star level. It is pricey, but to be honest I can compare this favorably to the mandarin and the four seasons in terms of quality. I would highly recommend, particularly... More

Since its opening two years ago, Louis Hotel has rapidly become my favorite hotel in town. Conveniently located in Viktualienmarket, close to Marienplatz, its rooms are modern and cozy. The staff is very kind and available to solve any problem. The highlight is Emiko Restaurant with its creative fusion menu.

We loved the Louis! Right on the Viktualienmarkt, trendy-but-comfortable decor and quietly helpful staff. It also has a nice little gym with very modern machines, free fast internet and a welcoming hotel bar, which make it great for work - we've agreed this is our new first preference in Munich. My only slight gripe was slightly slow breakfast service in... More

The Louis Hotel is a fairly new hotel belonging to the "Design Hotels" group. Its location off the Marienplatz and on the Viktualienmarkt (daily market) is superb; all the central Munich restaurants and shops are within short walking distance. The hotel itself is very clean, the rooms are nice and spacious with wooden floors and character furniture. Breakfast was very... More

We arrived to Munich on an early flight so arrived at the hotel around 9:30. Although the room wasn't ready (didn't expect it to be), they took our luggage and called us by 11:00 saying our room was ready. The location is great. Right on the Viktualienmarkt. Book a room facing the market. It's interesting watching all the activity plus... More
