Hotel Review: Hilton Munich City, Germany

Juliet Rose at the Hilton Munich City

The Munich City Hotel on the Rosenheimerstraße near the Gasteig cultural center is just a little over 30 years old yet it isn’t at all showing its age, thanks to a recent top-to-bottom $50 million renovation that left no area of the property untouched.

I hadn’t been at a Hilton in the city since I was 11 and we stayed en familie at the Hilton am Tucherpark during that visit, so it was high time that I caught up on what Hilton had to offer in my favorite city in the world, the Weltstadt mit Herz.  To do that, I visited the hotel twice in a three-month period.

Arriving on a flight at Flughafen München, I took the S-8 S-Bahn, which is short for Stadtschnellbahn or urban rapid rail, directly from the airport to a stop outside the hotel, Rosenheimerplatz, in under 35 minutes.  I’m quite certain I’ve never stayed at a more convenient location in terms of mass transit.

I took the rolling steps up to the hotel entrance and stopped for a moment to admire a mobile coffee bar from the hotel’s art deco café, Juliet Rose, before entering.  The entranceway and lobby were both striking: guests and staff bustled about, chatting, having coffee, and I immediately knew I had made the right choice for a hotel in Munich.  Checking in was effortless and I was soon off to my Executive Room on the top floor of the building, down the hall from the Executive Lounge.

THE ROOMS

The hotel has 483 rooms on five floors.  My elegantly appointed Executive Room on the fifth floor featured a modern light earth-tone décor with a chaise lounge alongside the windows (in typical German fashion, they opened to allow fresh air in).  The room was generously sized and offered an easily adjustable thermometer. I did find a few minor housekeeping misses with respect to the preparation of the room but those were quickly dealt with.

On my second stay, I was in an Executive Suite that featured a separate living room with a similarly elegant décor.

Room amenities included a 49” flatscreen television, a coffee maker, and an iron and ironing board. The living room in the Executive Suite featured a large sofa, several chairs, and a marble coffee table on which I found some lovely welcome amenities.
