10. Hotel Bavaria

Hotel_Bavaria_MunichInside a guest room / bathroom at the Hotel Bavaria.

A discreetly modern, three-star hotel that seems to please everyone. The Bavaria has small but clean rooms, helpful staff and lovely buffet breakfasts – everything you really need. One little gripe is how they jack up the prices so much during Oktoberfest, but I guess that’s to be expected considering the hotel is just across the road from the Theresienwiese, the festival grounds.
Class: Three star
From €81

9. Hotel Uhland

Hotel-UhlandThe Hotel Uhland is in beautiful heritage building just across the the Oktoberfest field.

Another mid-ranger close to the Oktoberfest field, but the Uhland comes from the old school. Guest rooms behind Uhland’s splendiferous neo-Renaissance façade are large by Munich standards, and staff are well-informed and helpful to English-speaking guests. Some rooms feature waterbeds (all aboard!) and if you can guess the age of the building when you make your reservation, they reward you with a free drink at the bar. Psst…It was built in 1889.
Class: Three star
From €69

8. Hotel Torbrau

Hotel-TorbrauHotel Thorbrau at twilight.

The Thorbrau is deceptively old (its foundations go back to the 15th century) as its rooms radiate modern comfort. You can choose between either a quiet courtyard room or a berth looking out over the Isartor, one of Munich’s three remaining old city gates. A charming hotel, but some guests may find the compulsory walk up the stairs to the first floor elevators a turn off.
Class: Four star
From €139

7. Hotel Kriemhild Nymphenburg

Hotel-Kriemhild-Munchen-NymphenburgA loft room at the Hotel Kriemhild.

This kind of hotel is ideal for both older travellers and families with young children. Quiet and unassuming, the Kriemhild is in the leafy west Munich suburb of Nympbenburg, close to the same-named palace and the lovely Hirschgarten park. Guest rooms are clean and simple and the larger units have a corner sofa that can be converted into an extra bed. My favourite touch, though, is the Gunterstube, the small bar authentically outfitted with vintage Bavarian memorabilia.
Class: Three star
From €61

6. Platzl Hotel

Platzl-HotelThe Platzl Hotel's lovely Bavarian dining area.

While top-end hotel chains can be lavish, but they tend to be a bit divorced from the flavour of the locality. Not so at the Platzl, which sits smack dab in the middle of Munich’s heart. Although the décor in the rooms is a tad outdated the well-stocked bar and Turkish spa more than make up for that. But above all I think it’s the Platzl’s top value for money and enviable location that have earned it a position on this list.
Class: Four star superior
From €132

5. Rocco Forte The Charles Hotel

Rocco-Forte-The-Charles-HotelThe Charles is one of Munich'smost sought-after addresses.

Luxurious in every way, the Charles is Munich’s newest five-star superior hotel. Guest rooms are wonderfully appointed and come with original Munich artwork and porcelain finishings from the city’s Porzellan Manufaktur. With an indoor pool, spa centre, bar and sweeping views of the Old Botanic Garden over which it lords, the Charles simply speaks for itself.
Class: Five star superior
From €238

4. Hotel München Palace

Hotel-Munchen-PalaceOne of the suites at the Hotel München Palace.

Surprisingly affordable for the luxury it offers, the Palace goes very much for "classic" luxury. It sits across the Isar River in the district of Bogenhausen, home to some of Munich’s best theatres and concert halls. The showpiece suite is the "Music Room" which comes with a king-sized bed, open fireplace and even its own piano.
Class: Five star
From €171

3. Cortiina Hotel

cortiina-hotel-munichThe Cortiina's designer rooms are something to behold.

It’s the fascinatingly individual design that sets the Cortiina so high up on this list. Some say it a re-imagined Alpine retreat, with oaken finishings, warm colours and feng shui design. The whole thing has a rather soothing effect, not bad considering its just a 5min walk from Marienplatz.
Class: Four star
From €149

2. Laimer Hof am Schloss Nymphenburg

Laimer-Hof-am-Schloss-NymphenburgThe wonderful Laimer Hof in Munich's leafy west.

This is a family-run, cosy-as-they-come number located in Munich’s leafy western suburbs. What it lacks in five-star features it makes up for in simple elegance. The Laimer Hof is walking distance to Munich’s lavish Nymphenburg Palace and botanic gardens. Beer gardens, restaurants and a subway station are also close by. With rooms starting from just €45 the night the Laimer Hof is also eminently affordable.
Class: Two star
From €45

1. Mandarin Oriental Munich

Mandarin-Oriental-MunichTop place: A room a the Mandarin Oriental Munich.

Anyone who’s had the pleasure of staying at the "Mandy O" won’t be surprised to find it at the top of this list. The Mardarin Oriental ticks all the right boxes: Facilities – A Michelin-starred restaurant and rooftop pool for starters.
Location - Around the corner from the Hofbräuhaus in Munich’s city centre. Service - The staff go above and beyond expectations. The Mandarin Oriental is truly the cream of Munich’s crop of luxury hotels.
Class: Five star superior
From €525
