My husband and I stayed here during Oktoberfest in Sept 2010. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised. When you walk in, immedietly you are drawn to the funky-hip art work on the wall and the disco ball that spins in the back corner by the small bar/seating area. It is as the name says, "a boutique" hotel. That means it is going to be a bit smaller, a bit pricier, but super hip and trendy.
The elevator was something we were not used to as it was very small. It fits about 2 people and 1-2 suitcases if you are lucky. We are small people and it was tight for us. The elevator was quite slow as well so we ended up taking the stairs the rest of the 4 days we were there. Even on the 5th floor it was no problem at all.
The room when we checked in was super cute and trendy. First thing I noticed was the red decorative lights that were on the night stands and on the entrance wall. They cast a fun red hue which just added to the trendiness of the room.
Our room was on the top floor, had a flat screen tv, a small coffee maker, a very comfortable bed (down comforter), a standing closet, and a bathroom. The bathroom was funky because it was ultra modern, complete with a bathroom door that was made of frosted stripped glass that you could see in and out of. Not much for privacy, but we did not mind.
Although we slept in a bit we were never woken up to housekeeping, which was great considering we were on our honeymoon.
Every day we would check in with the front desk to ask them for advice on food places, Oktoberfest info, train info etc., and they were always so willing to help.
The area where the hotel is at is great! It is just about 10 min away via the train from Marienplatz so you are a little bit away from the craziness of the square but not too far out to not enjoy being close to everything. There are TONS of restaurants and cafes, hair salons, wine shops etc. Cute little area - we liked it.
The only downside was the cost of the hotel. It was a little pricey due to it being Oktoberfest. If you are there for Oktoberfest be prepared to pay the high prices, but don't let it hinder your trip. The Leonardo Savoy is a great hotel and worth a few extra dollars to stay in funky style and enjoy Oktoberfest.
