Le Méridien Munich Hbf: Upscale Accommodations In Munich Central

Review of Le Méridien Munich | Bayerstrasse 41
  • Trip101 Review

European cities are connected by railway lines making travel easy. In the center of Munich is the Munich Hbf train station where thousands of visitors arrive daily. Right across the street is the Le Méridien Munich offering travelers a four star hotel with reasonable rates. Depending on the dates, rooms go for a little as 120 EUR/149 USD. The Le Méridien Munich has 381 rooms and suites to choose from. All offer a clean and modern place to rest after exploring the city.

Your room awaits

Le Meridien room

The room choices start out with superior rooms and have an ample 301–366 sq ft (28–34 sq m). The next leg up the room choice menu is deluxe garden-view room. This quiet room comes with the same amount of space but offers a peaceful view of the garden area. If you want more space, try an executive room with a king bed. A full 377–484 sq ft (35-45 sq m) will give you room to stretch out and pile up the bags of goodies you bought while shopping.

The linens in all rooms are of high quality and you’ll love that the hotel offers two kinds of pillows for a good night’s rest. Robes and slippers are in each room and are useful when heading off to the pool or spa for a swim and soak. Emotion Spa Munich is at your service for spa treatments. Also on-site are a fitness center, sauna, and steam bath. A business center has copy/printing services, currency exchange, and secretarial service when you have work to get done.

Junior suites provide a whopping 484 sq ft (45 sq m) of luxury. The upgraded amenities include free Wi-Fi, garden view, illy coffee machine, and a complimentary minibar. A living room area provides a sofa and an armchair for your morning coffee and newspaper break.

Bathrooms in all rooms are a cut above most hotels and the showers feature two shower heads for a custom wash. The hot water was almost instantly delivered with strong pressure. On cold weather days, you’ll love the heated towel racks and the large fluffy towels. Just be sure and turn on the power to the towel rack about 30 minutes before showering.

The Le Méridien Munich has significant meeting space for large or small events. Choose from nine venues for groups of 10–220. With a location across from the train station, it’s easy for event participants to get to the hotel whether they are coming in by train or airplane.

When hunger strikes

On-site restaurants include Le Potager, serving Mediterranean cuisine with indoor seating. Find breakfast and dinner at Le Potager six days per week. The Hut specializes in Bavarian fare and serves up cheese fondue in a cozy setting October through December. Longitude 11° serves hot breakfasts, and a bar menu throughout the day. Longitude 11° is a good spot for cocktails, beer, and wine located just off the lobby.

There is so much to see and do in the local area and the concierge is available most of the day. Find the concierge desk just beyond reception. Note that the concierge might be away from the desk occasionally but the front desk can help you or they can summon the concierge back to assist. I found Will to be most helpful concierge on my recent stay. Will knew the restaurants and recommended Brasserie Colette Tim Raue for a wonderful French-style meal. The concierge can also book train tickets on the spot. If you are not familiar with the train station’s automated ticket machines, you’ll find this added service from the concierge a big help. The concierge can also help you understand how to get around on the convenient subway, busses, and local trains. If you bought the local train day pass at the airport (airport-city-day-ticket) it’s easy to reach most attractions in Munich. Use the pass for a family of up to five (just 23.90 EUR/29.7 USD) or single ticket (12.80 EUR/15.90 USD) and ride the rails, U-Bahn Underground, buses, and tram until 6 a.m. the next day.

Shopping and sightseeing

Munich plaza

Be sure and take a walk to the Marienplatz where this large public plaza has shops, restaurants, and a magnificent bell tower menagerie. If you are at the plaza when the clock strikes the top of the hour, get your camera ready to record this circular moving scene. From the Le Meridien, you can walk (about 15 minutes) or take the subway to Marienplatz. Also near the hotel is the Viktualienmarkt where an assortment of foods are for sale in shops and stalls. For a convenient grocery and fast food, check out the Munich Hbf Train Station just across the street.

Quality lodging

Le Méridien is known for quality lodging and their Munich Hbf location is one of the best for a stay in Central Munich.
