I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. Room was gorgeous and spacious. Beautiful bathroom with separate shower and tub, nice toiletries, and lots of nice touches throughout the room. Truly a five star room. The service was OK; hotel was quiet, and staff leaves you alone, leaving it up to you to ask for help. Very nice location,... More

My wife and four children stayed at the Charles Hotel for 4 nights. We had a suite with a connecting room. Plenty of space for all of us. It was expensive but worth it. I felt we got everything you should from a 5 star hotel. The concierge, Heidi, was incredible. She seemed to know everyone in the city! The... More

We stayed at the beginning of our trip and we needed a hotel for a few nights 2 weeks later before departing and we did NOT want to come back. It's a 5 star hotel without a doubt but I felt for the high price in Munich there were service issues. The location is ok - not that close to... More

Great location in Munich. Close enough to the main tourist areas for a short walk, but far enough away to cut down on traffic and noise. Probably one of the best hotel bathrooms I've had and the front desk was helpful throughout the stay. The only issue we had was the 1st room they assigned to us reeked of smoke,... More

This hotel suffered by comparison as we came to it from another 5 star hotel that was quite outstanding. By comparison, the Charles Hotel seemed a little tired and in need of some refurbishment. However, the hotel facilities were reasonably good, the breakfast buffet was excellent and the one dinner that we had in the dining room was good even... More

Lovely location..comfy rooms...service beyond compare, this is one of the most delightful hotels I have ever stayed in. The bummer was that the day after our arrival, the pool area and sauna were shut down for renovations- I did manage to go down just to experience briefly the night of our arrival and I KNOW I would have enjoyed it...

Combining elegance and grandeur with modern luxury, the Charles Hotel embodies what all luxury hotels aim for. From the six star service from the bellboys, concierge, and restaurant staff, to the large and luxurious rooms finished with high-end linens and amenities, to the great location, a mere five minutes stroll from the train station, the Charles Hotel has it all....

We stayed at this hotel over Easter. The service was simply impeccable. Large rooms with extremely comfortable beds and special attention to children. The breakfast is simply one of the best I ever had. The location is very good: not far from the train station, Marien Platz and the Museums. Englischer Garten is a bit further away.

We spent two nights here at the end of an 11 day tour of Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. We stayed in great hotels all along the way, but The Charles exceeded all of them! First, the room/bathroom were the largest we had encountered in Europe! The service was impeccable-and not pretentious service, but truly helpful, friendly service! The hotel was... More

The best hotel I have stayed in! Everything was perfect - staff, facilities, rooms, beds, bathroom. Nice location only steps away from the main train station but perfectly situated next to a park. Very quiet! Beautiful spa and pool! An amazing restaurant!
