We chose the Cocoon because it was one of Munich's affordable "design hotels", and opted for a junior suite on the 6th floor.
Concerning the "design" designation: the first impression is indeed stylish, the lobby has a friendly retro style and the room has a cool couch with a tray, rotating mirror/TV element opposite the bed and a nice retro 'sphere chair'. But on the second look, there were quite a few elements in the room that ruined the design feeling: the old-fashioned dark-brown carpeting of the room (granted, I find carpets in hotel rooms a bit dated and unhygienic in general), no decorations whatsoever in the room which made it l look a bit barren, a bath tab in the room that looked very old and really didn't fit in...
Apart from the design, the room was very spacious. The bed itself was comfortable, unfortunately it had two mattresses with a huge gap (maybe 5+ cm) between them which I found not very couples-friendly and actually quite annoying. Our room had a balcony, which was very convenient - but it would have been even nicer if there had been any kind of furniture there, because if you wanted to sit down for a rest in the sun you could do so only by sitting on the floor.
We had room 61, which is oriented towards a quite busy street, making it noisy when you try to sleep with an open window (when closed, though, the noise is well kept out).
There is no mini-bar in the room - we really missed that, because we had no chance to shop for drinks or snacks in a supermarket which require cooling (thus, if we wanted e.g. a cold beer, we always had to get it from the bar).
The bathroom and shower are nice, though the drainage is not very efficient - and since there is no door, you either have to take care not to use too much water or risk causing a flooding of the room.
The hotel is not really central (requiring about a 10-15 minutes walk before you reach the beginning of the old town), but not too far off either. The reception staff was always very friendly an accommodating. We didn't try the breakfast, so I can't say anything about its quality.
All in all, the hotel was OK - nothing more, but also nothing less...
