Mandarin Oriental Munich
Address: Neuturmstrasse 1
Neighborhood: Old Town
Centrally located, yet hidden from the bustle of Maximilanstrasse on a quiet side street, Munich's Mandarin Oriental offers a haven of tranquil luxury in the middle of a happening city. The hotel prides itself on unparalleled levels of service and comfort. Its 73 rooms and suites are notably spacious and exude an understated elegance with subtle East meets West décor, cherry-wood furniture, and a color palette featuring creams, tans, and hints of gold. Amenities include flat-screen TVs and non-mist mirrors in the marble bathrooms, original paintings, fresh fruit baskets, and plush, custom-designed linens. Some suites tout winter gardens, stunning city views, and beautiful antique pieces. Before you leave, be sure to take a dip in the rooftop pool and sample the Mediterranean-influenced international cuisine at Mark's, the hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant.
