THE CHARLES HOTEL
The Charles Hotel, a Rocco Forte Hotel - Munich, Germany
On the edge of the city centre and a five-minute walk from Munich’s main train station, the hotel is an easy amble from the Kunstareal, as well as the designer boutiques that populate Maximilianstrasse. For destinations further afield, extensive underground and tram services depart from nearby stops.
Among the most spacious in the city, bedrooms are plainly but agreeably finished in taupes, moss green and creams. Some rooms offer views of the adjacent Old Botanical Gardens from French balconies while all feature generously sized limestone bathrooms with heated flooring. Suites stand out too, with most categories providing guests with complimentary minibars and airport transfers.
SERVICES AND FACILITES
The Cosy Winter Village on the terrace of The Charles Hotel offers a unique christmassy atmosphere. The beautifully decorated glass huts are the perfect place to enjoy an alpine Christmas menu, or to relax al fresco with a view of the Old Botanical Garden. Nowadays Munich hosts a wide range of different Christmas markets.
SPA & FITNESS
The Charles Hotel offers ample business facilities but more enticing are the spa, with sauna and steam rooms, and generously sized indoor swimming pool – a pleasant space in which to while away a day during inclement autumn or winter visits.
FOOD & DRINKS
Set in an inviting, light-filled room in the restaurant Sophia's puts vegetables and fruits centre stage and promises a refreshingly light alternative to the heavy dishes so synonymous with this region. More traditional, the hotel bar offers deftly made cocktails – with musical from Thursday to Saturday.

This well-regarded and centrally-located hotel offers spacious rooms, an enticing spa and uncommonly generous breakfasts, within easy reach of the designer boutiques that line Maximilianstrasse. We highly recommend staying at the Charles Hotel in the middle of Munich, Germany.
