This is truly a hotel that cares about the little details. I'll list a few. We just stayed the weekend in April at this hotel during our 2.5 week trip to Germany. It is walking distance from the train station. The bellman spotted us walking down the sidewalk and sprinted to us to get our bags. He then gave us... More

We chose to stay at the Charles because of an excellent 3 night for 2 offer from Amex's Platinum Card Fine Hotels and Resorts program, and were delighted with our choice. Our family was upgraded to lovely rooms overlooking the garden which were beautifully designed and furnished with considerable attention paid to such small but important details as bedside lighting,...

We stayed at the Charles because we were in Munich for the football. Manchester United were also staying there which was a bonus. We have stayed at the Kempinski and other top hotels in Munich over the years but this is now our favourite. Brilliant staff. Friendly, efficient and always smiling. Beautiful location next to park but also very close... More

This Art Deco style hotel has all the advantages. Next to the central station yet very quiet. Beautiful view of a park. The staffs are young, charming, very helpful and well trained. Walking distance to all the attractions. The spa has a nice big swimming pool. I definitely recommend this hotel.

More than 5 Star due the excellent service, the spacious room and the perfect bathroom. I did not believe all the positive reviews here, but they are true.
