“beautiful hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We stayed in the Sofitel Munich in December 2012 so that we could visit the famous Christmas markets. The hotel itself if stunning both outside and in and the room we had was huge with everything you could ask for and more. As has been mentioned before, the bar is very popular and so it can be difficult to get a table but for me there is nothing worse than walking into an empty, soulless hotel bar so the fact that it was quite lively was a plus as far as we were concerned. The location is perfect if you are arriving by train, and indeed the train station itself is very handy for a spot of breakfast, but the immediate surrounding area is a little run down and 5-10 minutes walk from the main shopping and tourist areas. This wasn't a huge problem for us but it does stop me giving the place the full 5 stars, certainly a 5 star hotel but only a 4 star location at best unless you are a business traveller looking to jump on and off the train.

After reading all the great reviews here, I decided to stay @ Sofitel. Though the prices is abit on the high side, I'm glad I made the right choice. A really nice way to end my trip after travelling in Europe for a month. The location was great cos its nxt to the train station. The ppl hanging ard the station r pretty harmless. In fact, there's alot of eateries at the station. There's direct train which goes to the airport. Main attractions are 2 stations away. You can walk if you want but it was abit too much for me cos it was snowing.

The hotel is new & modern. Room size was ok for me cos I was travelling alone. Love the room design n toilet was awesome. It was kinda weird with the window overlooking the entrance of the rooms on the other side though. Internet speed was ok. Great bar at the lobby.

The reception, housekeeping staff, right down to the doorman, were polite n friendly. The concierge was really outstanding. Its inevitable when ppl fall short in terms of service since there's so many ppl working in hotel. One thing for sure, it has nothing to do with racial discrimination as suggested by some. Cos i'm an Asian and i didnt get any of those crappy service.

Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here. In fact, I will stay here again the nxt time I'm in Munich. Hopefully the rates will be abit more friendly on my pockets since I m usually travelling alone. :)

We had a suite, but we wanted to have twoo separeted beds. Wenn we arrived was already arrenged our request. The prise of the breakfast cost not to chip, but was really very copious. The bar is very populair we didn't get place in it.

This is one of the best hotels we ever stayed in. Staff was very helpful from the very first minute. We were surprised at the reception with an unexpected upgrade from standard to Les Fleurs du Mal suite! :-) Quite a surprise! We still don't know the reason, but we were very happy. Hotel's design immediately draws your attention. Sofisticated, tasteful and discerete modern elegance prevail in all common areas. The suit itself is also modern in its design. Built around a toilet with either transparent or dimmed glass. Fully recommendable for romantic stays. Hi tech lighting design and control, with light scenes, Bose sound system and two LCD tv sets.
Common areas are vast, giving you a great dose of full breath. Elevators are fuge, with mirror walls.
Breakfast was great, again with very helpful staff and great choice of meals.
All in all one of the best stay ever!
Danke!
Mike

Let me start by staying that it is a good hotel in Munich. It offers great accommodation with very good service. The only problem is the price that is more expensive than comparable hotels and that's a shame. Other than that I think I would stay here again if I could get a good deal. Overall a nice stay !!

Although the Sofital Munich Bayerpost was right by the train station, it was not loud at all. We didn't hear one train. It was super convenient to walk to the hotel from the train station without having to deal with public transportation. It is also very close to the city center w/o being directly where all the tourists are. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you can find a good rate.

Dear guest,

I am sorry to hearthat your recent stay at Sofitel Munich Bayerpost didn't meet your expectations.

Regarding accessing your room, we are applying strict security measures for the safety of our guests and their own belongings. It is unfortunate that you did not feel our staff handled the situation porperly, which we addressed.

It is true that at the moment one of our restaurants is undergoing major construction work to be reopened by the end of May as DÉLiCE - La Brasserie, offering typical French brasserie dishes. This is naturally accompanied by work that cannot be done silently. In consideration of our guests we therefore advised all the construction firms to not start any noise-intenive work before 9 am.
