... the BMW due to my familiarity with the vehicle and that (at $8 per gallon) I didn't really feel a big SUV was the most fuel efficient option, she said in her heavy accent, "We only have Land Rover or economy car," in a sort of take-it-or-leave-it tone. I had no intention of driving a Land Rover around on my trip through narrow, winding mountain roads, so I opted for the 'economy' option…whatever that was. She handed me the keys to a Fiat 500 and I was off to ...

After lunch at Drugstore, we continued to walk around and found the English Garden (and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Munich
Great Location and Big Comfortable Rooms
We spent our Christmas 2003 holiday in Munich, 7-nights. We found a nightly rate of 95 Euro on Le Meridien web site. Once we found our way out of the Haupbahnhof, we simply had to cross Bayerstrasse to reach the Le Meridien. The doorman and front desk staff gave us a warm welcome. Check-in was a breeze, even though it was only 10 am on Christmas Eve. The huge window with the tiny standing-room-only balcony of our large room on the fifth floor overlooked Goethestrasse. The chic-modern European décor sports a high-tech plasma flat screen TV with internet access. The storage and lighting were excellent. The king-sized bed is made with good quality linen, extra pillows and double feather comforters. The sleek bathroom has both tub and shower and my favorite feature, a towel warmer. All of the sights of historic Munich are a short stroll away. The location is so convenient to streetcars and trains. The breakfast buffet at 20 Euro per person looked great, but is too rich for our budget travel mindset. Only thing negative is that there is no in-room coffee pot, leaving the only options for morning coffee at the hotel to either splurge for the big breakfast or room service for 4 Euro per cup! There is plenty of to-go over at the Haupbahnhof. Next time, we'll try to get a rate that includes the breakfast.
Great Location and beautiful hotel
Great location - across the road from Hauptbanhoff which is the main train station and from where you can get any transport link to all over the city. The hotel is luxurious and the bedrooms are lovely. Clean and with all possible amenities. The gym and pool is lovely and a nice change from wandering around the city. Great hotel, great location and no complaints. Le Meridien is a great chain and always reliable.
Can't wait to go back
I stayed here for a weekend in early October for the beer festival. It is a stunning hotel and possibly the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I liked the fact that they have individual duvet covers. Great flat screen tv, reading lights and decor. The breakfast was amazing, although costs 19 if you do not have it included in your deal (we didn't and still paid $219 USD per night). You can get better deals than we did, but well worth a visit. Location couldn't be better as it was 10 mins walk to Oktoberfest & train station is accross the street.
Across from the train station and a 5 minute walk to the pedestrian plaza in the center of Munich, Le Meridian was one of the highlights of our trip. The hotel was luxurious and the help attentive and friendly.
Our room was decorated with leopard patterned carpet, golden walls, recessed lighting, flat screen t.v., dsl, with a very comfortable king bed with two individual comforters. The bath was elegant, top of the line fixtures, separate tub and shower, granite counter top, beautifully appointed.
Great Value !
Great value if you can get a deal including breakfast otherwise it might be a bit expensive if you are a family. The rooms are great and with the Plasma tv screens it adds to the ambience. The rooms were kept clean, the service was excellent and the food was very good. We booked through American Airline Vacations...
Loved everything about this hotel
My mother and I stayed in Le Meridien Munich for 3 nights in April, 2003. Tho hotel is very modern and chic. The staff were friendly and helpful. No problem leaving our bags in the office for the day before our plane left. Also we arrived at about noon on the first day and we had no problem checking into our hotel room immediately. The dinner buffet was worth the price just to see the way the food was displayed.
As well as visually appealling the food was excellent. Breakfast was included on the weekend and you had a choice of a cold breakfast in the bar or a full buffet breakfast in the dining room. The pool and area was spotlessly clean with full lockers and shower area. The hotel is across the street from the main railway station. It is very conveniently located for those coming from the airport. There is an airport bus to the railway station for 9 euros each way and the hotel is then literally across the street which even with luggage is very easy. The location could not be better and I personally say nothing wrong with the area.
Can't agree with other oppinions. Hotel is nice, and service is not bad at all. Very friendly staff. Cool plasama TVs in room. Location not too bad either, only 5 min from "Stachus". Stayed there two times, and always got nice rates through the internet.
Not a comfortable hotel...
Stayed at the Le Meridien Munich 4 nights in July and was not pleased.
The hotel is modern and clean, but the soundproofing is non existant.
Noisy throughout the day and night, even in a courtyard room. Also the lovely spa was populated by kids at play, as they have no minimum age requirement. Beware that any billing disputes will be settled in the hotel's favor. The neighborhood is the worst, but access to the Hbf is a plus. 3 stars in my opinion. You can do better in Munich.
Nice rooms, great breakfast and good value for money
If you manage to book a weekend break deal at this hotel it is great value for money. The hotel is in a central location and is in walking distance of the main shopping area of Munich including the Marienplatz. The most impressive part of the weekend break deal is the free luxury buffet breakfast - food includes everything you could imagine for breakfast from the basic cornflakes, fruit and yoghurt to smoked salmon, waffles and local food such as the Munich Weisswurste. Enjoy.
Nice hotel, but too expensive!
This is a brand new hotel, so the rooms are in great shape! The bathrooms are a bit small, and I expected more for the price, and since it is considered a 5 star hotel. The service was average, and sometimes not very good. We had problems with the in-room internet, and the technician they sent was totally incapable of fixing it. We had some other isssues while staying there, and everthing was balmed on it being a new hotel. For the price that I paid, I expected more. I have stayed at other hotels in the city, and have gotten a lot more "hotel" for the money. The only really good things about it are the location and the "looks".
