Apartment hotels – a good alternative to a traditional hotel

KempinskiMaximilian Munich

Sightseeing, a trip to the Oktoberfest or a business appointment at the trade fair grounds – there are many reasons why people visit Munich. The city does its utmost to meet the needs of its many different guests. From a youth hostel bed to a cozy room in a small city center bed-and-breakfast to a luxury suite in a five-star hotel, Munich serves up an rich choice of rooms, with 60,000 guest beds in almost 400 hotels in all categories. In 2016, overnight stays in the city were more than 14 million including both German and foreign guests. 

The renowned Munich luxury hotels, the Bayerischer Hof, Vier Jahreszeiten and Mandarin Oriental, contribute to this official room count. They provide pure luxury in a central location, which many famous guests have already learned to appreciate. These “top dogs” among luxury hotels have had new competition since 2007 from The Charles Hotel run by the Rocco Forte Group.

An apartment hotel is a good alternative to a traditional hotel, especially if you need accommodation for a longer period and don’t want to spend a fortune. You can move into a fully equipped apartment with a kitchen, Internet access and separate office immediately without the need to bring a truckload of furniture.

Munich has a big
choice of these serviced apartments in nearly every district, including the luxury Residence Inn in east Munich, Citadines in Arnulfpark and Derag Livinghotels, of which there are now four in the city. The price is usually significantly lower if you stay for a minimum of four weeks.
