I am a big fan of the "luxury hotels of the world" group of hotels (LHW) and always make an effort to stay at one of these hotels during my travels. The Charles hotel is by far the best value for money I've had staying at any of these hotels. It is very well priced but still offers all the extras and luxuries that you would expect from the LHW group.
The hotel is located minutes from the train station but is in a secluded area surrounded by a beautiful park which meant you get the convenience without the trashy surroundings generally evident near a central station. It is also of walking distance to old town and the shopping district.
The service is excellent (as you would expect from the LHW group), professional and friendly but not overbearing. For a relatively large hotel, they are still able to provide a intimate service where the staff remembers your breakfast preferences and address you by name.
The rooms are large by any standards (not just European), with marble bathrooms and a very comfortable bed. The breakfast is absolutely delicious and plentiful. I highly recommend their freshly cooked pancakes and waffles (on request), I had these everyday and never got sick of them!
I highly recommend this hotel when visiting Munich and will definitely stay here again for my next visit.
