“Elegance near Marienplatz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This modern and elegant hotel is easily reached off the Marienplatz, and is tasteful, understated and incredibly comfortable. The restaurant Emiko serves a spectacular breakfast with creative touches and their japanese dishes at dinner are also excellent. The bed was very comfortable; the floor decorated with kilims and the soaps from a high quality vendor. Internet coverage was excellent and included in the rate. For an uplifting stay in the center of the Altstadt, I strongly recommend this beautiful hotel. The hotel is easy to reach using the S8 train from the airport and walking one block from the Marienplatz station. Try the fresh juices across the street in the Viktualienmarkt.

Room Tip: My room looked over the Viktualienmarkt and was still quiet.

"Louis" belongs to the investor/owner group that also owns the "Cortiina" hotel and "Brenner's" restaurant in Munich.

It is well thought with intelligent features, a stylish design serving the needs of the user and a friendly staff that makes arrival and departure a pleasant experience.

The rooms are spacious (at least mine, in the 5th level was), clean, furnished with a sense for modern, yet cosy & comfy design.

And - the "Louis" hotel its located in the heart of Munich, across the street from the traditional, wonderful "Viktualienmarkt" - a perfect location. And perfect destination to make your Munich trip a lovely experience!

I had a good experience at Louis Hotel.
The hotel is in a great location, close to all the most popular destinations for tourists.
The hotel has a very elegant decor. My room was elegant and clean, but small. The bathroom was clean and elegant.
I've been for a week with my wife and we are very satisfied.

Very conveniently and centrally located, just around the corner from Marienplatz station, but not immediately obvious from pavement level. Friendly welcome and a quiet, stylish and comfortable room at the rear of the hotel, quiet that is when the church bells stopped! Actually, the sound of many different church bells nearby made for a very atmospheric few days. Breakfast was an out-of-the-box experience: an exquisite mix of western and oriental delights, attractively presented and an adventure for the taste buds. During the evening, the restaurant serves Japanese food - not to be missed. More traditional Bavarian fare is plentiful at the Viktualienmarkt opposite the hotel, a lovely spot to wander in the sunshine. The hotel is surrounded by many different and enticing stores so no problem finding gifts and it would take a long time to explore all the cultural attractions within a short U-Bahn ride. Would not hesitate to return if the exchange rate continues in the UK's favour.

we stayed at Louis last week for 3 nights. Combined business and pleasure trip. The hotel is new with very warm and nice decor. The service was excellent! Spotlessly clean! The deluxe room was very big and great for a very comfortable stay. We had a great sleep and we found the bed very comfortable. We were there early and early check in at 9 was arranged. Great lobby area with fire place and bar. The location was excellent and very convenient to explore Munich. The metro at the corner and across the street taxi spot. I would definitely recommend Louis and we would stay again. The breakfast was expensive so we decided to eat there the first morning and see if its worthy. Great quality cheeses, bread and croissant, however I did not see any hot eggs etc and although I love Japanese food, I did not like at all the Japanese part of the breakfast. I would say that it was poor in taste. The rest of the days we had breakfast out at places near the hotel. Anyway Louis hotel is a great hotel, with very polite staff ready to help with anything you need. My husband will be traveling for business there 2-3 times a year and we are planning to stay there again.

Room Tip: The courtyard deluxe was perfect for a family of 3. Desk is convenient when you travel for business.

Ideal location - right in the center of Munich, close to Viktualienmarkt and Marienplatz. Quiet and comfortable rooms are well designed and well kitted out.The breakfast could seems a little bit expensive for those who didn't try it )) It's a great mix of Asian and European cuisine and healthy food.
Japanese restaurant is one of the best in Munich. Lobby bar is cosy and relaxing.
So - I'm regular guest from the very opening.

We booked based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. One entrance is just across the street from the market, the other entrance is within 1 block of Marienplatz which makes the hotel ideal for accessing public transportation.

The staff at the hotel was consistently friendly and helpful. We only ate one continental breakfast because buffet was too pricey and there were many options within steps of the hotel.

The room is quite large with an unusual arrangement. The room for the toilet is separate and right at the front door. The open window from the tub/shower was not an issue because of the shutter. The tub is quite deep which would make it difficult to use for someone with any mobility issues. Although the hotel is in a very busy area, there was no noise to disrupt sleeping. The windows opened so that we could enjoy the pleasant weather.

The only real negative for us was the very firm mattress and flat pillows. The linens were quite nice, but we had difficulty getting comfortable in the bed. I guess we are too accustomed to pillow-top mattresses in most US hotels.
