“All good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Did 5-nights stay, mix of business and leisure. I chose the hotel based on TripAdvisor comments, but was weary of the negatives I had read - staff attitude, noisy rooms, and breakfast cost. Took care of the latter with a special they were offering for 3-night and longer stays: 10%off, plus free breakfast. One problem gone.
As for the other two (attitude and noise), I didn't need to do anything about them: they were nowhere to be found. The staff was attentive and courteous (front desk, breakfast, ...), and we found the room to be surprisingly quiet considering its front street location. The room was large for a downtown European city hotel, everything worked, on-site parking is available at a competitive price, and the entire package is attractively priced. For the location, I think it'd be hard finding a better quality/price balance.

Cortiina is close to being my favourite hotel. The hotel itself is perfect. Small scale, understated and well designed rooms, and a great location in a surprisingly quiet street in Alstadt. The only think I'd suggest they rethink is 1) the breakfast service and 2) the common areas during night.

1) The breakfast. The buffet is great. The price is also fair considering the quality of the food. The breakfast tables, however, are too close. Also, the omelets made to order (included in the buffet price) could have been better. It also took some time to get coffee. In general, service was good and polite, but slow (the one day we had breakfast at the hotel). Also - we truly enjoyed the fantastic atmosphere and breakfast (half the price!) at the Italian Bar Centrale across the street. In our opinion, that breakfast experience was much better. I'd say they should rethink the breakfast table set-up and work a little bit on the service.

2) The common areas at night. I had high expectations of the common areas at Cortiina. It looked so cosy from the pictures. I really liked the bar area and the sofa in front of the fire. But the rest of the common area had a formal dinner set up. I think they should skip the sit down dinner thing, and make it more of a social area with long communal tables / lounge area. There are so many other restaurants in the neighborhood.It's not really needed at the Cortiina. So, I'm sure it would have been better if they made the common area more into a relaxed place to have a drink and / or a small bite, or to just sit down in front of the fire with a good book.

That said - the hotel is exceptional in all other ways. The staff at the front desk, the rooms, the location, and the hotel exterior - it's really well designed. Truly understated luxury. Nothing like the flashy Mandarin Oriental nearby.

I'm 100% sure I'll be staying at the Cortiina next time in Munich - be it for pleasure or business.

Room Tip: The rooms toward Ledenstrasse can be noise during the weekends. Ask for a rooms facing the courtyard...

We stayed here in May of 2014 for 2 nights for the start of a 2 week trip through central Europe and what a great place to start! A really hip, trendy, design boutique hotel in the perfect spot for staying in Munich: a short walk to Marienplatz, Victualienmarkt, Residenz, St. Peter's Church, The Galleria at Marienplatz, the subway..everything 5 minutes away. The hotel room was a superior room just down the street (20 feet) from the reception. Super cool room on the very top floor with what we decided had to have had the best view of all the rooms: our full wall of windows looked out over the rooftops to the square with Hofbrauhaus and all of it's human traffic day and night. The design of the room (ours at least) is midcentury modern with ultra cool furniture, appliances, and small design features. Large sofa and big comfy bed, flat screen TV, great min bar and kitchenette with microwave and fridge stocked with bavarian beers, wine, and liquors. Bathroom was luxuirous and huge with equally huge tub/shower and heated floors. A/C in the room worked perfectly though it was not really needed.

The service was great..no complaints, staff were pleasant and knowledgable.

Breakfast buffet (though pricey) is the best hotel breakfast I have ever had thus far. Have it at least once during your stay.

We did not eat at the restaurant for lunch or dinner but did go to the bar both evenings. The bar is gorgeous and attracts a very hip, trendy crowd. The cocktail menu is vast and fun, the bartenders some of the most talented I have seen. Even if you do not stay at the hotel the bar is worth stopping in for.

Cortiina is a trendy hotel catering to a design savvy clientele (largely).I would not say it is very family friendly and I saw not a single child but I am sure the hotel would disagree. Overall a great choice for staying in the right spot in Munich.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are really spacious with huge bathrooms. They are almost suites.

Cortiina has always been one of our favorites because the rooms are bright and well designed. our two visits just confirmed once more that they have most things well organised. The hotel is quiet and professional right in the middle of town. Perfect...

Me and my husband stayed here for 4 nights, our first time in Munich. At checkin our room was not immediately ready but the front desk man recommended a fantastic coffee bar/restaurant just across the street which was as great as he said :) we came back and were escorted to our room where our bags had already been delivered. Room was sleek, modern and had an incredible bathroom. He was also extremely helpful in offering sightseeing ideas, directions and any other help we needed. The location of this hotel was perfect, minutes away from Marienplatz, Hofbrauhaus and the Victuals Market yet on a quieter sidestreet. I absolutely loved our stay here.

This was a lovely hotel in a great location near Marienplatz and Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Spacious, clean and tastefully decorated room. Very easy to relax. Only issue for me was the room was fairly hot; however with the windows open it was comfortable.

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location. The room was nice, neat and clean. The bathroom's size was pretty decent. The staff was very friendly. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends. It's close to Marienplatz so you can just take a short walk there.
