The Experience

Munich’s motto was once ‘cosmopolitan city with a heart’. Today, that heart beats strongest around The Charles Hotel, close to the Alte Pinakothek and the Lenbachaus. Our facilities are as impressive as this theatrical city itself. Relax in the largest standard rooms of any Munich hotel. Take a dip in the city’s longest indoor pool. Admire the biggest collection of artworks by Franz Von Lenbach. The smaller details are just as impressive. Subtle Bavarian designs among contemporary interiors. Delicate flavours in our terraced restaurant. A personal touch in each elegant room.


Munich presents a captivating mix of Gothic grandeur and modern city living. At The Charles Hotel, you’ll be right at its centre. Set on the edge of the famous museum quarter, we’re close to historic attractions such as Königsplatz and a short stroll from the designer stores around Maximilianstrasse. Mingle with the locals in one of the hundreds of traditional beer gardens. Dine on Bavarian cuisine in the Maxvorstadt artists’ district. Visit the bohemian Schwabing quarter, Nymphenburg Palace and Leopoldstrasse University. With unrivalled inside knowledge, our Munich Concierge can shape this fascinating city around you.


Most of our 136 Munich rooms enjoy views of the city or of the old botanical garden. Designed by olga polizzi, each has a wealth of individual character and charm. The cool and contemporary decoration perfectly reflects the city’s Bavarian history.


Contemporary design. Distinctly Bavarian detailing. Together with all the little touches that make you feel at home. Our 24 Munich suites are comfortable and elegant, and when you stay in a classic suite or above, you’ll enjoy additional services too.


Dinner and drinks overlooking the leafy gardens. An aperitif in Bavaria’s coolest bar. The perfect venue for every palate.

Sample an inspired range of original Italian dishes at Davvero, all made with the finest local ingredients. Black truffles. Mediterranean lamb. Figs with saffron. All served in our light-filled restaurant or on our terrace with its views of the Lenbachaus and Old Botanical Garden. Seasonal alfresco specials include summer drinks under the shady trees or, in autumn, our rustic Oktoberfest delicacies. In winter, enjoy roasted chestnuts and homemade mulled wine.

Traditional English Afternoon Tea is served every day beneath the artworks by Franz von Lenbach. As the sun goes down, enjoy an extensive range of expertly-made cocktails, fine cognacs, whiskies and wines. Regular live music adds to the lively atmosphere.
