“Great Location, Rooms, and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We spent 4 nights here as a family which includes our infant (7 months) and toddler (2 years).

I originally booked 2 hotels with suites to accommodate our family. The other hotel was more expensive though very close to the Maximilian. Let me begin by saying that the Maximilian is wonderful in their communication. All emails I sent were responded to very quickly (I believe they would have responded within the hour had it not been for the time difference and that it was the middle of the night in Germany when I sent them).

I needed 2 cribs which they not only offered for free but guaranteed (the other hotel wanted to charge me 25 euro/night per crib!). The cribs were very nice and included crib sheets (the ones we brought from the States would not have fit the longer cribs in Europe) and a small bear in each crib. They were set up when we arrived which has almost never happened to me when I request a crib in the States.

We had a room with a balcony that faced the garden that was recommended by the staff during our email correspondence; they recommended this to be sensitive to our kids needing more quiet. The suite was quite roomy by European standards. Yes, the elevator is small but it is not much smaller than the one in my apartment building when I lived in Europe for 5 years. This is simply the size of the elevators. It did mean we could only get 1 stroller in at a time but, again, that's the norm.

The bathroom was a decent size and, again, typical from my experience in Europe. The kitchen was fully stocked with the following:
Flatware
Silverware
Cooking knives
Cooking utensils
Pots and pans
Glasses of several different sizes and styles
Stove
Microwave/Oven combo
Oven
Drying wrack
Sink
Hotpot (which was great for us for making bottles for the baby)
Toaster
Nespresso machine (with pods that were refilled daily)
Tea bags
Coffee amenities (sugar, cream, etc.)
Mugs
Garbage Bags

The bedroom had a 3-section wardrobe. Each section was big enough for us to fit our large Samsonite bag in. There was also a safe in there.

The bathroom comes with Molton Brown toiletries which are very nice and a higher end brand in London.

The hotel itself is very conveniently located, as other reviewers have stated. Just minutes from the city center, a grocery store, restaurants, Hofbrauhaus, etc. By the way, the bakery on the cobblestone road across from Hofbrauhaus next to the Japanese restaurant and souvenir shops is much better than the one many are recommending here (that you get to by turning right out of the hotel).

The service is also wonderful. The only negative is that the housekeeper came one day when our boys were napping and they would not come back later because we had "refused service." However, after telling them the boys' nap schedule they made sure to clean our room around that time every other day we were there. The hotel staff was also very helpful when our baby needed a doctor they arranged that and asked us almost every time we passed by the front desk after that how he was doing (and one time told me the staff had just been talking about our boy over supper due to their concern).

The breakfast was pricey but not outrageous for a hotel breakfast. The food was good and, like most European food vs. American food, was about freshness and quality versus the absurd, gross quantities we consume in the States (guilty!).

All in all, this was a great hotel, spacious, comfy, conveniently located and with great service.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the courtyard/garden for a quieter experience.

We spent two nights at Maximilian Munich and it was a wonderful experience. We stayed in one of the apartments which was large and comfortable. We had a balcony which overlooked the rose garden. The staff there were exceptional. Its location is perfect and everything is accessible via foot. We had a car but didnt use it for the 2 days we were there. The restaurant was fabulous, the food delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Munich.

Stayed there with my Son in early August for 4 days ... the reviews on this hotel are accurate and to the point ... as I have to be in Munich again in mid October, did not hesitate to book for a second stay. Clean cosy hotel, rooms with adequate space (by European standards) and a few minutes walk to the center... area is very safe till late at night....

If you are renting a car, there is a multistory garage opposite the hotel, which adds to the convenience.

This hotel is literally 5 min walk for Marienplatz but it is an oasis of calm, charm and peace. The rooms are spacious, decorated tastefully with modern fittings and include a small kitchen space. The room has a small balcony overlooking the garden which has a very peaceful and wonderful fountain bubbling away. The service is excellent and this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at and I have stayed at a lot. It is not the cheapest hotel but it is worth paying for what you get.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a balcony

Went for weekend stay to see the wonderful city of Munich. The Maximillan was a wonderful suite hotel that made us feel right at home. It was a short walk to many of the must sees....Haufbrauhaus, Glockenspiel, etc. The staff were able to answer any questions we had, and were more than helpful in assisting us with transportation, must sees, etc. Their ability to speak English fluently aided us in our comfort. Would definitely stay again if we visit Munich....

Located centrally in beautiful Munich this is a great place to make home, fr a few nights or a few weeks. The apartments are modern with everything you need, and walking distance to the key sights of Munich.

You can stock up and self cater, wander around the corner to eat at one of the many great restaurants and beer halls, or dine in at the Maximilian restaurant.

The central garden is tranquil, and we loved waking up listening to the trickling water feture and the birds. No street noise at all if you book an apartment overlooking the courtyard (some in the outer apartments, but still pretty quiet).

Helpful staff, the bet location, modern and well appointed - we will be back.

Room Tip: Business or holiday is great. Courtyard facing is quiet. Long term and return stays saw us upgraded...

Stayed here in August 2013 with my infant daughter and husband.

Location is excellent - around the corner from the Mandarin Oriental and just a few blocks walk to the center of town, shops, restaurants, etc.

We had a 2 room garden suite with kitchenette. The refridgerator came stocked as a minibar but the staff removed the items within so we could use it to keep our own items cold. The bed was very comfortable and outfitted with fluffy pillows (none of those flat jobs that seem to be the norm at many hotels). The little fire escape terrace was a nice to have as well and overlooked the interior courtyard.

The hotel set up a travel crib along that was quite clean and served us well. We were able to "park" our stroller in an adjacent hallway since it would not fit in the elevator and I didn't want to have to drag it up up 2 flights of stairs.

There are pay per use washers and dryers in the hotel lobby which is a wonderful amenity albeit the coin operated system has its pitfalls (we essentially had to run down to the lobby at the exact moment or be shut out of the machine)

On the downside, our room only had a small shower which made bathing a baby a little bit difficult. And lastly as mentioned by previous reviewers, there were no non-news English channels which would have been very nice to have during our jet lagged evenings.

Overall a great stay and would highly recommend them.
