... the hotel... We checked in our hostel and found a very nice, clean and modern private bedroom that (surprise for me) also had a private shower and toilet... With a door this time! It even had a balcony... Bonus points! We headed out to visit the city and as it was getting late for dinner and we were looking for a place to eat when we stumbled across a insanely good piano player on the streets. He was playing complicated classicals, ...

The group arrived over a two day period – December 11 and 12 – and our first activity was a walk with our guide, Günter, for dinner at the Hofbräuhaus, one of Munich’s oldest beer gardens.

... museum is really worth a visit even if you don't know anything about anything related to cars or BMWs. The architecture of the buildings are unmistakable and awesome, but what really caught my eye was the new vehicle customer delivery area. BMW offers a European Delivery program where you can custom order your car and fly here to pick it up fresh of the factory floor. From here you can then take it out on the roads to drive through Europe before they ship it back home ...
... Helga, after one of her hench women had been slack. Helga came back to us and said 'I hate Italians here. They are not used to drinking beer. They come here drink too much too quickly, act like idiots and throw up.' I said 'Im sure Australians can be bad too?' No she said. I love Australians You are so much fun.' My cunning plan had worked. However, it was stating to get embarrassing as the tent was really filling up and the three of us had sector 7G ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mandarin Oriental, Munich
I recently again spent few days in this hotel and having stayed also in other fivestar Munich hotels, I must admit the Mandarin Oriental is the best choice for those looking for luxury, privacy and perfect service.
My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Switzerland and Munich in October, and let me say that ending up in Munich at the Mandarin Oriental was the perfect ending to the perfect honeymoon.
What can I say. Seriously, I travel A LOT and I've never had a room or service to parallel that of Munich's Mandarin Oriental.
Because I am on a tight budget for a project that requires me to travel out of the country at least twice a month, I was little reluctant to stay in this hotel where the absolute cheapest rate is about 300 euros a night, but I have been dying to see what became of the old Hotel Raphael now that the Mandarin has bought it up.
Our family stayed at Mandarin Oriental from Aug 1 to Aug 4 of 2004. We had 2 connecting junior suites - for my wife and I and our 2 children.
Great location to the shopping district of Munich plus other sites. Spacious rooms and a very helpful staff. Enjoyed going into the square next to the hotel for coffee in the morning. Also, be sure to eat at the Hof for a traditional German meal and atmosphere. Lovely hotel.

The Mandarin Oriental, is a small Hotel with perfect and friendly service which give you a feeling like coming home. It is perfect situated, at a small side road of the famous Maximilian street. The rooms are very spacious and well equiped. The bed is a dream. Marks restaurant serve good food, enjoy a great coktail and live music at the hotel bar. From the rooftop pool you have during summer a fantasic view over the roofs of Munich.

Beautiful hotel with elegance. Great to know that even Prince Charles has also stayed at this grand hotel.
This is a fabulous small hotel - but be prepared to pay dearly. However, if you can afford it, it's worth it - mostly. Location is central and within easy walking distance of key sights and restaurants. However, it can be noisy at night due to its proximity to the Hofbrauhaus so be sure to request a room NOT facing it. Our check-in was easy and fast. We had driven in and they valet parked our car. NY price of E19.50/day. The room was adequate in size and exquisitely furnished. Terrific marble bath with shower and tub. Fruit & cheese plate waiting for us when we opened the door. Breakfast is NOT included and was an exorbitant E24.00 per person for the buffet regardless of how much/little you ate. All in all a great place for our last night in Germany after spending a week hiking in the Bavarian Alps.
We have stayed there twice - previously when it was the Rafael and after it became the Mandarin Oriental. Wonderful location right behind the Hofbräuhaus - short walking distance to Marienplatz, Viktualienmarkt, Theatinerstrasse, etc. Gorgeous rooms - probably the best bathrooms in Germany - separate toilets/bidets, separate marbled showers & tubs. Ask for a room with a view towards Frauenkirche, Marienplatz - much better than the opposite direction. Just beautiful when the spires are lit up at night.Check-in can be slightly frosty, but didn't let it bother us. Wonderful bar for meeting friends & elegant breakfast room. Huge fruit basket in room upon arrival, wonderful service, super-comfy beds, great work area. We have stayed in all of the top hotels of Munich & like this the best - no conferences/meetings like at the Bayerischer Hof and nicer rooms than the Vier Jahreszeiten. Worth the splurge and be sure & have dinner at Austernkeller, a few blocks behind the hotel - excellent lobster thermidor in a cozy, yet colorful setting with incredibly gracious service. My favorite hotel in my favorite city!
