Together with three other couples, we were at this Kempinski for 3 nights during an abnormally hot time, 90-95 degrees which as I understand it is very unusual for Munich. It is hard to describe how completely uncomfortable our rooms were. We had the AC on full tilt and the additional fan (one couple wasn't given an additional fan as they ran out) ran 24/7. Being from Seattle I understand that you might not be prepared for a heat wave, but it was the lack of ability to get out in front of this and offer some form of recompense or just soothe a weary travelers nerves. (Our nerves may have been uber sensitive as we had just gotten off a very diverted cruise from the horrible flooded Danube) Eventually, after the problem was brought to the attention of the Hotel Manager, she did come over to our group one night and bought a round of drinks for us all. The unbearable heat overshadowed everything, but I would say that our room while spacious with a great deal of wonderful cabinets and drawers was quite tired. The bathroom was large with a wonderful bathtub and I loved the bath amenities. This was a suite, but truly because we kept the window treatment fully closed, we never went out on the balcony and I can't remember if there was a view at all. One of the best things about the hotel was the over the top breakfast buffet which was included in our room rate. It was spectacular with diverse offerings and elegantly presented. The location of this hotel is fantastic, so despite the tired nature of our room and the lack of comfort, I would go back there. I would definitely ask for an updated room/suite and if I were traveling in the summer, I would ask if there are rooms that have better AC features than others. I found the front desk staff very helpful and pleasant, and particularly the concierge staff who organized a private walking tour through Munich with an extraordinarily knowledgeable guide, and recommended great restaurants for our group.
