Munich is a center of attraction for both holidaymakers and business travelers all year round and has something to offer for every taste and budget. During the famous Oktoberfest, which attracts over a million visitors every year, prices are particularly high and early booking is essential. If you want to stay cheap, you should look for accommodation in the outskirts of the metropolis.
The following hotels in Munich are divided into three categories:
Luxurious (more than € 200)
Moderate ( € 100 to € 200)
Inexpensive (up to € 100)
These are minimum prices for a double room per night, with VAT and breakfast, unless otherwise stated.
The privately owned Bayerischer Hof has been run by the same family for over 100 years and is especially popular with wealthy international guests. Ernst von Siemens is said to have rented a luxurious suite here for most of his life.
The grand hotel is a legendary institution among Munich hotels and is characterized by classic corridors and foyers and offers guests a swimming pool on the terrace on the top floor, designer shops, a theater and a jazz night club. The magnificent rooms are decorated differently. Some look very romantic and English and bear the handwriting of designer Laura Ashley, others are in southern European country house style or are reminiscent of French castles of the 19th century.
The German high society regularly meets here for important events and award ceremonies.
