Our third time to stay here AND by far the best. Superb location, very helpful staff, lovely room on 4th floor ( 428 from memory), with great bathroom(no tub!). Room was very large, high ceilings, quiet, bright, elegant and refurbished not long ago. We ate 2 superb breakfasts in the hotel restaurant( GREAT staff there!), and one excellent meal our second evening in the lobby of the hotel, great to relax and people watch! Valet parking for 40 euros a night. For me this is the ONLY place to stay in Munich!
A perfect combination of old school charm and modern understated luxury. Recently renovated, this hotel really deserves its badges. Great rooms, outstanding facilities, excellent location and world class service. Would definitely go back.
Yesterday I asked for a 4PM checkout today as I am a Platinum member of Amex. The clerk at the reception desk it approved it!!! This morning I came to ask for more keys and was advised that I need to clear my room at 2pm. I asked for a manager- she came out and advised that I can keep the room until 2 PM but I need yo pay 100 Euro for that! I think this is a shame. Not to mention that I stayed here last week and spent the night with a non working shower. Never again!
Hotel Kempinski in Munich Germany is absolutely perfect. The beautiful accommodations are spotless, top to bottom. The morning breakfast is delicious and offers the best in early dining. The location is fabulous with all the high end stores, parks and monuments nearby. A shoutout to the doormen, especially Carlo, who is attentive and helped us navigate our way around Munich. Also the concierge was kind and patient. If you're ever in Munich make sure to stay at this hotel. It's more than worth every penny you spend.
The best reason to like this place is its location about 8 minutes walk from the main city square and its department stores. Breakfast buffet here is outstanding; you could stay here a week and not get through all the breads. Dinner here was also quite good with excellent desserts. Our two connecting rooms were good with plenty of closets and nice bathrooms although I find these Toto toilets really annoying as they keep turning on and making noises even if you are not near them. The indoor pool here is good, but there is no swimsuit spinner; they removed it for covid and haven't brought it back. There is a steam room as well. The problem here is that they close all this down at 9, including the gym which is really small for a 5-star hotel. I was told that they recently enlarged the gym, which makes you wonder how awful it was before. They need to enlarge this, especially since if more than 2-3 people are there, it's cramped. There is a large machine there which is not intuitive to use even though there is a video playing on the wall that describes it, and it takes up half the room. They need to look past enlarging that space and just find a better place to put the gym. If I were here on a business trip, I'd not want to be stuck at this hotel without a a real gym and no facilities after 9pm. But if location were key and you were here for one night, you don't need to look further than this place. Otherwise, the Bayerischer Hof or the Charles hotels would be worth a good look.…
The real experience would have been 4.9 but 5 is a nice round up. At first we were given a room that faced the inner courtyard. The room was ok but the view sucked as the inner courtyard is basically gravel. It was probably quiet but that was about it. Although the room was supposed to be non-smoking, there was a very bad cigarette smell coming from the bedroom closet. We told the management and they immediately upgraded us to a room on the fourth floor, facing Maximillianstrasse. This room was fantastic, the only quibble that I might have with the room was that the toilet was separate from the main bathroom area. This is a combination of tradition and practicality. This is not uncommon in the European hotels and homes, and since the hotel is used quite often by business folks, it makes sense to have a separate toilet so that your business guests can use the toilet without them seeing your toiletries. Now to the good parts. The hotel’s location is great. It is close to all the shops and to the old town. And since we were lucky with the weather (except for half a day of rain, it was sunny), we walked everywhere, including the art museums and Deutsches Museum (strongly recommended). The staff is great. They arranged for pick up from the airport (for a fee) and the concierge helped us with getting around town and seeing the sights. Thank you Hannah! The breakfast buffet was exceptional. Even though I am an American, the idea of cold cuts and Bavarian sausages for breakfast appeal to me. They also had fresh baked bread and croissants, yogurt, hard- and soft-boiled eggs, and cereal. You could also order omelettes, waffles, and pancakes. My only complaint was that I am a tea drinker and the hot water they brought was never quite hot enough. Their coffee on the other hand is great. As for the hotel restaurant, unfortunately it was closed for the summer holidays, and we couldn’t try their Michelin starred cuisine. Perhaps next time. This is a big hotel and the clientele is international with many families. This may not suit those who like quieter, smaller, boutique hotels, but the hotel worked for us perfectly. Strongly recommended.…
This is not a five star luxury hotel. It’s an embarrassment that this is in the fine hotels collection. Be wary of the higher priced suites as well, they are very dated and have low height ceilings. They charged us extra for a room they did not have and refused to credit us the difference. A terrible experience and rude management.
Location is perfect for shopping and expiring the city. They also have a cigar room available - hard to find this days. But the overall interior is old and outdated, the bathrooms are too small and surely do not match up with the price of the hotel - there are other places in Munich with a better price / quality ratio.
Finding a go to hotel in a major city can be difficult as standards are high. We took the simple view that location was the most important thing for us. As we were going to an opera at the National Theatre virtually next door, choosing the Vier Jahreszeiten was a no brainer. The reputation of the hotel precedes itself of course - it oozes quality in every setting without ever being stuffy. Our room was lovely and well appointed. There is a hop on hop off bus stop close by so you can sit back and enjoy the joys of this wonderful city in a leisurely way. All in all a lovely place to stay.
Location is awesome. However interior is outdated and AC is poorly functioning. I had a standard room on second floor and we have struggled with AC during our whole 3 day stay. It was noisy but useless
