5 hip hotels in Munich

1) The Flushing Meadows

Hard to find, although it is located on a very busy corner. While this hotel, which is located on the two top floors of an industrial building, may look non-descript, you’ll be blown away when you step inside and see the eleven individual loft studios. The designs are the result of collabs with a musician, a pro surfer, a musician and a DJ, a film director… There are five penthouse studios on the top floor, where you’ll also find the public bar.

2) 25hours Hotel The Royal Bavarian

This hotel, which is located in the magnificent neo-renaissance building of a former post office, is conveniently close to the city’s central station. Munich’s first 25hours designer hotel has 165 rooms in five categories. The interior is an interesting take on Bavaria’s royal past. Good to know: the hotel offers rental bikes for free. And they know good food as you’ll find out when you eat at Neni, the hotel’s restaurant.
