My hotel of choice in Munich was the Mandarin. The Charles is better than the Mandarin. The rooms are large and comfortable--with great bathrooms and work areas. The restaurant and bar are good (and plenty of good drinking and food options nearby). The location is very convenient. Highly recommended.

We booked through Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts. The location was a very short walk from the main Munich train station (5 minute walk at most). The location couldn't be better. We were within walking distance of Marianplatz, many beer gardens, and shopping. The lobby isn't spectacular but the service at the front desk was. Our room was beautifully appointed... More

Our family stayed at this property for a week, while visiting Munich. The location is fine, but the park across the street gets a little sketchy at night. The rooms are HUGE and we booked this because of the extra did-bits they do for the kids, but there were no real perks for the kids, besides the welcome stuff, robes... More

The staff at the Charles were very helpful. The room was ready as soon as we arrived. We needed an additional roll away bed in the room even though we were early checking in. The rooms were nice, clean and the food in the restaurant was great. Nice nice staff.

We can't say enough great things about this hotel. We were there for two weeks, and were expecting that the room, restaurant, and facilities would be excellent - and they were. What we didn't expect was that the service would be so personal, consistent, and exceptional. To name a few: Nick at the Bar, Benny at the restaurant, Max at... More

This hotel is located one block away from Hauptbahnhof in a very quiet area right by a park in which there is a slightly hidden biergarten. This is an excellent hotel with spacious rooms (love the bathroom!), nice staff and lovely breakfast. Will definitely come back!

This is a beautiful, luxurious hotel in a great location in Munich. It is only a few minutes from the train station, and right near a park - about a 10-15 minute walk to the Marienplatz. The rooms are wonderful and spacious with generous sized bathrooms. Service is top notch. I would stay here again.

I picked this hotel based on positive reviews on all channels. The service was great, so was breakfast. The hotel gives you feeling of boutique property. The materials use are great. I loved in particular the spacious bathrooms.

Booked a one night stay on motorcycle trip. Due to mechanical problems needed to change reservation day. Hotel was very inflexible and charged us for a no show even though hotel was clearly not busy. Stayed at other 5 star hotels without any problem. Would not recommend this property.
