When I was researching my trip to Munich I felt that The Charles Hotel was the best place to stay when in Munich. Having stayed there I am not so certain. The hotel is beautiful. The location is quite central - we were able to walk around the old town and taking a subway was very easy - the central...

We had reserved a classic room for 4 nights for our 5 year wedding anniversary. While we were not given an upgrade for a park view room, the room had a french balcony with view overlooking other side (into offices). Nevertheless the hotel had placed a welcome gift to us which was thoughtful. The room is set up nicely and...

Can't say enough about this wonderful hotel. Beautiful spacious rooms with all amenities you could want. Absolutely quiet with most comfortable bed and pillows. Can't think of a want that wasn't met except I prefer in-room coffee which wasn't available. But was just down the elevator, along with complementary pastries. Gym was top notch. Equipment and amenities were over-the-top. All...

Very nice hotel. Lovely rooms, comfortable bed, well-designed bathroom. We had a "super deluxe" room overlooking the Botanical Gardens. The view from our room was picturesque and the sitting area by the balcony was very comfortable. By and large, the staff are super friendly and accommodating. Only complaint: upon arrival, one of the front desk ladies (brown hair) was extremely...

Definitely a beautiful hotel, rooms are great, wonderful shower and comfortable bed. Breakfast is very expensive 41euro and average. Now if you want to have a drink in the library after 11pm because of the need of silence for a business confidential discussion we had to hear : this space is closed we don t serve here.

First class service, hot towels upon arrival, comfy robes and heated floors. Our room overlooked the park and was beautiful. The staff was attentive to our every need. I would definitely plan to stay here again.

Spent five days at The CHARLES on a business trip. The room was very comfortable and quiet even though it faced a busy intersection. The restaurant, Sophia's, is excellent, especially for breakfast. We spent several late evenings in the bar with a group of 10 to 12 people. Thomas, the bartender is fantastic. I highly recommend it .
