This was our second visit to the Charles. We found the staff equally as helpful and charming, absolutely going out of their way to do whatever might be needed, wanted, or suggested, on this visit. The location, decor, food and hospitality are all wonderful. The piano bar in the evening was delightful. The breakfast buffet has everything you need. The...

Beautiful room, 15 minute walk to Marienplatz, 5 minute walk to many art museums. Great service, amazing food in restaurant (pricey but worth the cost), nice pool, spa and fitness center. Hotel is right next to park, a little quiet at night, would not necessarily recommend walking alone late at night to hotel. Probably not an issue during spring and...

Beautiful hotel, magnificent pictures, splendid rooms. Disappointing breakfast when you do not choose the buffet. I ordered business breakfast option at the room, it said pastry and to my surprise that meant one single croissant, no toast no nothing else! The surprise was even bigger when I discovered that my daughter and my son they were luckier and with the...

I had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the Alter Botanischer Garten with the Juustizpalast beyond. The room was spacious with a luxurious bathroom. Room service is prompt and provides an exceptional choice of selections. Buffett breakfast was served in a lovely space by highly efficient and friendly staff. The gym though not large provides a good range of...

The Charles Gym is a well equipped Gym. Friendly hotel as per my previous experiences. Fantastic breakfast selection. Clean hotel and rooms. The location is great, and its my preferred hotel in Munich.

It was our last stop on the way back home after long trip and we loved it! It was very relaxing to stay at the Charles hotel with GREAT breakfast (!), very nice Spa (excellent massage service), quiet room and easy in-and-out location. Our stay was very soothing! Thank you!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Charles for 3 nights. Firstly, the hotel is elegant in style and decor. The rooms are spacious and looks over the park. I had a very comfortable room and the only creature comfort it lacked was a Tea/Coffee maker, otherwise it was perfect. Breakfast on the very airy restaurant was a great...

Was exactly what I was looking for. Was there for a conference which was on the outskirts of town. The hotel is in same block as a U-Bahn station which went straight to conference center. Very convenient. Wonderful breakfast and expert service. Was able to relax at bar in the evening and do additional work there. Laid back space.

This is one of my favorite hotels in the world, and I'm glad I made the decision to spend the last night of my trip here! It is a very nicely done hotel, and relatively close walk to the main train station in Munich. One of my favorite details is the heated bathroom floor, which is really nice when it...

For the last night of our trip we decided to splurge on The Charles - it was absolutely worth it. We were upgraded to a suite as it was my wife, myself and our son. The suite was gorgeous as it opened onto a park and street with nearly no traffic. In the heart of Munich the hotel was a...
