LE MERIDIEN MUNICH HOTEL REVIEW
Back in November, I stayed at Le Meridien Munich for one night for a quick weekend break. Le Meridien’s location is very central and convenient. Coming out from the central station you can literally see Le Meridien across the street to your right and it’s about a minute walk to get to. The hotel is also very close to the Marienplatz which is where you’ll find Munich’s main attractions.
With it’s central station location the exterior may not look like anything too special but soon as you step through the colourful doors and into entrance, you know you’re in the right place! From the first glance you know that this hotel is extremely clean and well decorated. My mom and I arrived late morning but were pleased to be able to check in early. We also got upgraded to an executive room on arrival which was a lovely start to our stay.
There’s also a lobby bar which serves coffee in the morning, a complimentary voucher was offered in the executive room.
We stayed in room 602 which is an executive room with a double bed. The room was very spacious and I liked the simplistic interior – chic, modern and bright. As soon are you enter the room there is an absolutely massive mirror on your right. We had a garden facing room but there was construction work going on so the view wasn’t great. There was an “apologies in advance” note on the bed though and we didn’t get bothered by any noise either so the construction was no problem.
Considering the size of the room, the bathroom was rather small but this didn’t bother us since we barely spent time in the room. Shampoo, conditioner and moisturiser were by Malin + Goetz which smelled great as always.
Our room had everything that we needed: international plug converter, bathrobes and slippers, a desk with phone, TV , dark-out curtains and hair dryer. We did however have a problem with the heating not working properly so the room was quite cold during the night, which to me is a big deal as it was a winter visit and I am extra sensitive to the cold. So consequently, even though the bed was very comfortable, I would have loved warmer duvets. There was also nothing at all in the mini fridge. Apart from that, room wise, everything was good and I genuinely really liked the room. Le Medirien Munich also has an indoor pool and a gym which guests can use.
The breakfast buffet at Le Meridien Munich was very good, fresh and offered an excellent selection. Whilst being international, the buffet included traditional bavarian dishes such as Leberkäse, White sausages and Pretzels. I particularly enjoyed the white sausages which were the highlight of the whole breakfast. If you’re not feeling too adventurous then there’s also the standard continental breakfast options. The buffet costs €28.00/pp when booking a room without breakfast included and is open from 6:30-10:30AM.
Le Meridien is so far my favourite Starwood hotel that I’ve stayed in. It’s central, clean, modern and has everything you’d need for a comfortable stay. I’d definitely stay there again if I’m in Munich and would recommend Le Meridien as a great hotel option, regardless of whether it’s for business or for pleasure. Prices start at around £120 per night for a weekend stay.
