“Good for a layover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Stayed here for 1 evening before catching a connecting flight the following day. The hotel itself is very nice, I found hotel services (e.g. bar and breakfast) to be a little pricey. The room itself is modern and has a mini bar and a good selection of English TV channels.

I made the most of my time and caught the S8 train from the Airport into Munich town (an all-day ticket cost around €11) If you don’t fancy that there is a lovely beer garden between T1 and T2 (right outside the hotel) where you can get a cheap bite to eat and a nice glass of beer (Airbrau) beer here costs only €2.70 for 500cl

Would use the hotel again, very comfortable bed, room with air conditioning and very helpful English speaking staff.

I have stayed at the hotel numerous times, usually after arriving later in the day from a flight elsewhere in Europe to connect the following day back to the States. Excellent service, good rooms, super convenient location ... short walk to check-in the next day. Enjoy the Lobby Bar. If we arrive early enough in the day, we often buy a Partner Tageskarte from the front desk for about 20 euro which allows up to 5 adults to take the S-Bahn into the city (and then trams, U-Bahn, etc. within the city) for dinner and back. Hotel can be a bit expensive at times, but weekend rates (including breakfast) can be reasonable.

Stayed at the Kempinski for just 1 night before catching an early morning flight back to the US.
Very modern design, impeccably clean, comfortable and spacious rooms, friendly service. Did not eat at any of their restaurants, instead had dinner at the Biergarten just outside by the Airport Center. Only disappointment was the jacuzzi... The temperature was beyond comfortable, meaning after just 5 minutes it got uncomfortably cool. Management already responded to this issue after submitting the questionaire and reassured me that this was not the norm and issue will be adressed. All in all a great stay and would highly recommend to friends and family.

I stayed for the 2nd time in this hotel and it's really wonderful! Twice I went for business since it is at the airport, I don't think people would like to stay for a holiday. Breakfast is the best of everything! Lunch is also very good but pretty much the same like the day before but there is so much choice that there is always something you haven't eaten the day before. Dinners in the restaurant or room service could be better, that was average.
Rooms are nice and clean.
Staff are very friendly and nice.
Meeting rooms are comfortable and refreshments during breaks are nice.
The only negative point I can say are the wake-up calls. Once an hour too early, the other time 10 minutes too late.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a quiet room since at the ground floor or close by the elevator...

Once again we spent a pre departure night at this ultra modern hotel that is within the Munich airport.

When we travel in Europe we often use MUC as our gateway. It is modern, hassle free and unlike Frankfurt, London or Paris, easy to navigate.

Since we are normally flying in from some other country in Europe to catch our home bound flight, taking an afternoon flight from any city puts us in Munich the evening prior to our departure and staying at the Kempinski means that we simply have to walk out of the hotel and into the check-in area of the terminal.

The hotel is of the spartan modern variety but quite comfortable. The lobby is stunning, a huge soaring, all glass atrium with a forest of fully grown palm trees. Indeed the space is so large that Audi, whose headquarters are in nearby Ingolstadt, often displays one or more cars in the space. The grove of palms is home to the lounge and bar.

The leather recliner in the spacious room goes some way toward making up for the institutional bathroom. Staff and food are very good. This hotel is the perfect way to end a European trip.

Room Tip: The hotel is constructed in two halves positioned on either side of the massive atrium /courtyard...

We ended up here when my wife became ill at the airport during a layover. The staff could not have done more to help us: Rebooked our flights, sent water to the room, helped us plan an alternate means of getting to a wedding in Prague and comped me a few drinks at the bar. Every person we encountered was exceptional.
