“Nice rooms with expensive restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2011

This hotel is a simple yellow box from the outside. Once you enter it is well furnished and the rooms and bathrooms are large, ellegant and well supplied. It is close to the train station and close to the center of Munich, both less than five minutes walking.
The restaurant has nice food but it is very expensive. You can order food to the room but also at high prices.
It has a small bar where drinks are served until late hours.
When we stayed there most other guests were foreigners. A large number of guests from the Middle East and from Latin America

I had wanted to stay at this hotel for a long time, and finally got a room rate I could justify (175 Euros). I was not disappointed. This is the nicest hotel I have stayed in this year, and the best since the Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg last year.

Notably, this hotel is a member of the “Leading Small Hotels of the World,” the third of these I have stayed at in the past two years. I know nothing about this association, but I have been impressed at each of these hotels, so I have started to believe this is a designation that warrants consideration when choosing a hotel.

The exterior of the hotel is deceiving – it is non-descript and unattractive, but the interior is great. I’ll let the photos do the talking, but in short, my room was clean, large, beautifully and elegantly decored, quiet, with high ceilings, comfortable bed, ample closet space, and a very nice bathroom. The room was well equipped with umbrella, safe, bathrobes, and mini-bar. There were some nice touches, such as complimentary bottled water, chocolate, and apples. Service was friendly, quick, and very professional.

Nevertheless, there were some missed opportunities. Food was exorbitantly expensive; I’m not sure I have ever seen hotel food priced so high. The air conditioner in the room didn’t seem to be working, but I could open the windows wide and it was cool outside but got street noise. The TV was curiously old and outdated. No ironing board. In-room coffee facilities would have been good, but there was none.

Despite some of the shortcomings, this is a great hotel and a really good option in the Karlsplatz area.

Hope this helps.

I stayed in the Konigshof for two nights on a trip to Munich mainly for business, using the very good Leading Hotels of the World membership card (which is much recommended as it provides some valuable perks including free breakfasts at the member hotels). The room was fairly clean and well furnished (carpet stained and all a bit in need of redecoration, but basically comfortable to luxurious). The service was extremely professional and diligent. A cramped lounge on the ground floor, a spacious restaurant with a good reputation on the first floor. The hotel is comfortable but has two drawbacks - it is pricey and it is in a dreadful location, surrounded on three sides by Munich's busiest trafffic providing a continuous row that the double glazing did not completely eliminate. There are other hotels which are as comfortable and less noisy in Munich.

My wife and I would highly recommend Hotel Koenigshof in Munich. We were greeted with smiles and assistance before we reached the door. The front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating. They even liked my attempt at German conversation. Our room was spotless and inviting. It was very charming and it provided two comfortable Queen Anne chairs to rest our weary butts after days of walking. Not every hotel offers two comfortable seats. We would certainly stay here again. And the location in Karlsplatz was outstanding, providing easy and immediate access to the old town pedestrian center. Sehr Gut!

Whenever I travel, especially if on business, I like to stay in small comfortable, centrally-located, family-owned hotels, places I can look forward to returning to after a hard day's work. My other criteria: a gracious and discreet staff, a peaceful atmosphere, large bathtubs, hard but comfortable mattresses, multiple pillows, good reading light, and special food. I like to start off my day with a full multiple choice breakfast and end it with a relaxing in-house evening meal. The Koenigshof in Munich fit my requirements.
A Leading Small Hotel of the World and one of four hotels in Munich owned by the fourth generation of the Geisel hotelier family, Carl, Michael, and Stephan, the elegant, fresh flower-filled Koenigshof is special except for its surprisingly unappealing post-war facade that luckily you'll forget as soon as you go inside. An old-world home away from home with modern touches like the fitness center and free Wi-Fi, the 5-star Koenigshof is very centrally located on the Karlsplatz, a five-minute walk to the frequent trains (9 Euros as opposed to 60 for a taxi) to the airport, the city's far-reaching subway, and another ten minutes through the downtown pedestrian area filled with shops, museums, and restaurants to the Rathaus, Marienplatz, Glockenspiel, and 800-year-old outdoor market, Viktualienmarkt.
Speaking of restaurants, the Koenigshof''s has one Michelin star, 18/20 points in Gault Millau and a cellar of c. 1,000 etiquettes started by the Geisel brothers' father and now the bailiwick of Stephan Geisel, who also has a wine shop called "All About Wine" off the hotel's lobby. Actually the family's love of wine goes back to Grandmother Maria. Her father, Dr. Schindler, bought a vineyard near Wuerzburg, which the brothers still own. It Riesling "Markelsheimer Probtsberg", produced by top-echelon Paul Fuerst, is a Koenigshof's exclusive. Besides being a wine expert Stephan Geisel is a gourmet who trained as a chef so it's not surprising that Austrian-born Chef de Cuisine since 2004, Martin Fauster, has worked his way up the career ladder in several Michelin-starred kitchens: Alfons Schuhbeck's "Kurshausstuerberl" in Bavaria's Waging am See resort, "Steirereck" in Vienna, "Maisons de Bricourt" in Cancale near St. Malo in Brittany with Olivier Roellinger, and as sous-chef for six years at Munich temple of gourmet dining, "Tantris" with Hans Haas. My recommendations: Fauster's marinated yellow-tailed mackerel with cous cous and curry; his char with radish and sorrel, crayfish with almond vinaigrette, and braised shoulder of beef with goose liver and Perigord truffle.
If you're looking for less exclusive dining, you only have to cross the side street, Schuetzenstrasse, and go to the sushi bar in the Geisels' trendy design anna hotel opened in 2002 and named for the brothers' great-grandmother, the first family member in the hospitality business. One one block further away in the Geisels' Excelsior Hotel, you'll find the cozy, Tyrolean-style wine bar "Vinothek". I had the best venison I've ever tasted sitting at the counter there, where the majority of the customers were eating freshly-sliced prosciutto di San Daniele and comparing wines. At the Excelsior it's also possible to sign up for cooking lessons given in German, English, or Italian.
