The Mandarin Oriental in Munich offers the same enticing mix of oriental luxury and local charm that can be found in any hotel under the Mandarin Oriental banner. Set in the heart of this beautiful city, the hotel is nestled in a quiet street by only minutes from many of Munich’s famous attractions. Providing guests with luxurious comfort, the hotel offers fantastic service, beautiful décor and oriental touches.

When we entered the hotel we were immediately greeted by immaculately turned-out staff. Their service with a smile was the perfect start to our visit to the hotel. We checked in whilst standing in the hotel’s extravagant lobby. Immaculately presented and elegantly designed, our first impression of the hotel was one of fascination and awe.

During our stay we were in the deluxe junior suite. Individually designed, our suite was incredibly spacious and beautifully in-keeping with the hotel’s traditional but stylish décor. In fact, the rooms and suites in the Mandarin Oriental are some of the largest in Munich.

The suite had an open-plan layout, with space for guests as well as ample space for the bedroom area. With French doors opening out onto a terrace, we had a perfect view of Hofbräuhaus. Combining traditional oriental style with modern German touches, the suite commanded attention from guests with beautiful artwork and impressive furnishings.

“The hotel’s fully-equipped fitness centres provides all the fitness facilities you could possibly need on your visit.”

Our suite was fully stocked with many essentials, as well as a few extra comforts. A Nespresso machine and a large desk were welcome additions to the room, making it a real home from home. The bathroom was also very impressive, with Molton Brown toiletries and heated floors and towel rails. The suite also came complete with a Bang & Olufsen television and audio system, as well as fast and high-quality internet services.

Outside of our room, we took advantage of some of the facilities offered at the Mandarin Oriental, Munich. The hotel’s fully-equipped fitness centres provides all the fitness facilities you could possibly need on your visit. Accompanying the fitness centre is a relaxing Turkish steam bath and Finnish sauna, the height of luxury.

However, the hotel’s masterpiece is probably its rooftop swimming pool. Complete with 360° views, the pool lets you explore this beautiful city from the comfort of the hotel. Heated and of a good size, the pool is the perfect way to relax during the summer months.

The hotel also offers the use of Mercedes Benz bicycles. Available without a charge, these bicycles provide the perfect mode of transport for exploring Munich, and even come with three suggested bicycle tours of the city.

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Munich, offers a variety of dining experiences. On the rooftop of the hotel, you can enjoy traditional Bavarian dishes or light lunches at the China Moon Roof terrace. The Mandarin Bar, adjacent to the hotel lobby, also provides a variety of food along with a large selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

For a slightly bigger meal you can visit BistroMO, which serves a range of meals in a relaxing atmosphere. The hotel also offers Michelin-starred French cuisine with an Asian influence at Restaurant Mark’s. Wherever we chose to dine, the service was always impeccable and friendly; the perfect way to start your day or end your evening.

Our stay at the Mandarin Orientel was wonderful. The service was consistently above expectations and the facilities available to us never failed to delight. We would be glad to stay here again.
