“Enjoy Munich in Style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

Perfect location for exploring Munich. In the heart of old-town Munich, the Marienplatz U-Bahn/S-Bahn station is literally just around the corner with connections to anywhere in the greater Munich area. What really sets the Louis apart from other hotels in the area is its "design hotel" ambition. Our markt-view room was unique & stylish, yet comfortable, with recessed closet space and plenty of great looking/smelling natural wood furnishings. The staff were friendly, approachable, and very accommodating! A highly recommended experience.

A word for those arriving by auto: valet parking is an option--one might find it easier to leave the car at the Rindermarkt entrance while unloading/loading baggage than at the front entrance on Viktualienmarkt, as the Viktualienmarkt is technically a pedestrian zone that is patrolled rather vigilantly by the Polizei.

I come to Munich at least 2-3 times a year for work and usually stay at the Cortina (Louis's sister hotel). My co-worker let me in on the secret that the Louis is nicer than the Cortina, bigger, and has an equally lovely staff. Also the decor is comfortablly modern without being stark. The plank floors make it.
Prices are mid and to be expected for a spot just steps to Marionplatz and a mere stumble from the beer garden.
They have a nice breakfast, a decent bar, and if you come home at 3am after too many Jager shots they will in fact open the locked doors with a smile and chuckle.

Room Tip: Seem to be all good

I stayed at the Louis Hotel a number of times this past summer. The staff is incredible: friendly, helpfu. The Louis Hotel has some of the best service I have seen in a long time---and what is refreshing it is from a young staff that seems really excited about being in the hotel business. The hotel breakfasts are sublime. I could have eaten them morning, noon, and night. The restaurant windows overlook the Munich's food market, so every morning you can see people setting up their food stalls which is charming.

The rooms are nice with a great storage/wardrobe system which is incredibly efficient in its use of space while providing a lot of closet space. There is a little gym that overlooks local rooftops and you can head out into Munich's streets for a nice job.

Stayed for a quick overnighter. Place is in a great, great location in the centre of the city close by to markets and shops – ideal location for a weekender in Munich. Not sure where you would park if you had a car, but that was not a problem for me and taxis. Hotel is very stylish and contemporary. Young, trendy looking staff were very friendly and efficient. Lobby area is small with a bar and seating area overlooked by two modern fireplaces. Cosy. Restaurant alongside is Japanese/Euro contemporary. Didn’t have dinner there but the menu looked very interesting. Breakfast was good, but nothing special. Room was large and modern, with bath/shower, separate WC. Room also had a safe and free wifi for guests. High end toiletries provided (Ren) which added to the whole sophisticated feel of the place. All in all a very nice experience and yes, spotlessly clean. Hotel is part of the Design Hotels Group which specialises in upmarket boutique style places. Whilst not quite boutique, the Louis is small enough to feel like one coupled with some character. Will come back for a long weekend and stay here. What more can I say.

This hotel is in a great location, next to the Marienplatz and Viktualienmarkt. We requested a room that overlooked the Viktualienmarkt upon booking, and that is what we got. However, you cannot hear much noise from the street and market - when the windows are closed, it is very quiet. The room was very clean and nicely furnished.

Breakfast is good, but expensive. It is a buffet of Japanese-style bites, fruits, pastries, sausages and cheese, and then you can order eggs prepared as you like.

My only complaint is that it is nearly impossible to hear someone knocking on the door, and our maid walked in on us several times before realizing the room was not vacant. Also, laundry services were very expensive.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the Viktualienmarkt

Dear LBranden,

thank you for your feedback.

It’s true both, our doors as well as our windows are extremely good isolated. The doors are very heavy and thick due to their high fire protection. The windows are on a very high noise protection level, that’s why the rooms to the market are very quiet too.

We would be happy to welcome you again at the LOUIS HOTEL soon.
