I know it's all about opinions but boy some people are picky. The hotel doesn't deserve the recent poor reviews.
The Kempinski is a grand hotel type of establishment in an historic building and the decor reflects that. It absolutely does not need a refurb as suggested. To tart up a hotel of that type and smother it's origins would be vandalism. If you were determined to find signs of wear, had nothing better to do and looked hard enough I'm sure you'd find something. Otherwise, the hotel is fine.
The location is spectacularly good being pretty much central for everything. We went during Oktoberfest and were able to walk or cycle to all venues.
We stayed in an executive room which was typical city hotel size and the decor was acceptable without being elaborate. The TV wasn't flatscreen which I suppose would bother some people. It hardly mattered as most stations were German or Arabic.
The staff were excellent and gave 5 star standard of service even though it was a busy week. They were friendly, helpful and informal.
Like many grand hotels, the Kempinski had an interesting mix of visitors.
We felt has if we were at a different hotel to the reviews. We enjoyed it anyway.
