A Rocco Forte property, named after Sir Rocco’s father, The Charles Hotel is in the centre of Munich, with an ideal position alongside the Botanical Garden, yet minutes from the city’s main cultural and shopping areas.
Designed by Olga Polizzi, the hotel is filled with original works of art, sculpture and photography. Lovers of history, culture and art will also appreciate the hotel’s proximity to Munich’s Old Town, the historic square of Königsplatz, and several excellent museums and galleries, including the Neue Pinakothek.
Although grand and luxurious, the hotel reflects its Bavarian location in a number of ways, including room décor. The 160 rooms (including 23 suites) are exceptionally spacious for a city hotel. Classic Kings have living areas and French balconies, and are as large as the Deluxe King category, with the latter having the advantage of Botanical Garden views. For top-floor views, but still the same size and facilities, opt for a Superior Deluxe.
The Davvero restaurant at The Charles Hotel Munich serves a Mediterranean menu with a focus on Italian cuisine. The elegant dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows, but if that isn’t enough, there is a large, leafy terrace overlooking the Botanical Garden.
The Charles Spa has an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room and five treatment rooms, as well as a gym.
