Rated 5 out of 5 by DSchneid7 Great Stay
The hotel is great. The staff was wonderful. The convenience to local transportation is amazing. Well located for access to major parts of the city. The only downside is the somewhat seedy sections nearby, but this is due to location near main trainstation. Once you walk a few blocks, all is ok. Had one great meal in the restaurant and a good time at the bar. Prices were better than expected. Reception staff was amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BusinessTraveler Front Desk Team + ambient music
Had a tremendous experience as a Starwood Platinum based on the attentiveness of Moritz and the rest of the front desk staff. Upgraded my wife and I from a Deluxe room to a corner suite, coincidentally to the same room as our first date several years ago. Second best part of the stay was the music played in the lobby and the elevators: Sly & the Family Stone "If You Want Me To Stay" and Radiohead. Ambience matters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Menzie Great Product, Concierge/Porters disappointing
Returning to this Meridien for several years, this was the first time I really was disappointed by the porters & Concierge service. Upon arrival no effort was made to assist with luggage. Same on departure (conveniently looking away). How about considering a service to assist clients catching a train to take luggage across to track? Concierge gave incorrect advise, recommending a taxi, whilst the tram would have been there with 2 stops. Taxi stuck in traffic due to building site. Sincerely hope that this non-attentive and somewhat arrogant attitude was a once off - The hotel made up for the above inconvenience by assisting perfectly and efficiently with some left behind property which was quickly found, dispatched and arrived at other hotel shortly - thanks to Carina Wimmer, Guest Services Agent. Otherwise a great location, if one needs to catch the train or needs to be close to the "Innenstadt", as well connected with the U-BAHN.

Rated 4 out of 5 by betsyw Great Contemporary Atmosphere . . . but
We enjoyed the contrast from the vintage hotel we'd stayed in the night before. Contemporary furnishings and art had just the right amount of edge. However, paying for internet access? Dislike! And there was mold around the base of the shower where it met the tile and glass sides. Informed the desk when we checked out, it would have been nice to have been offered a couple hundred points to compensate, but no.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TravelerUS2014 Average
Overall it was an average stay. The bed was comfortable and room was fine but I was on the 8th floor and could still hear a great deal of street noise - very noisy. Also - please replace the hairdryer - it is one of those that you have to hold down the button to keep the air flow and gets tiring for women. Location is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michael10 Always the same great level of service
The staff at Le Meridien really goes the extra mile. Although the hotel is located across from the main train station, there is no major noise level. Once in the Hotel, you feel you are in a different world. Reception staff is very friendly and professional at the same time. A great plus, on Weekends breakfast is open until 1 pm!

Rated 3 out of 5 by VickyC Hotel standard not as expected for a high tier Starwood Group
Hotel was a standard one - room was spacious, however TV options were limited for a non-German speaker and water leaked out of shower cubicles so the bathroom floor will always be wet. I don't rate front desk staff and concierge at all, however dining staff were good and so was breakfast selection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PVa50 TV and air condition
Unfortunately the TV set and channels that were available in the room did not meet my expectations. Only limited variety of TV channels were available. Also, the TV set was hard to use, since the remote controller did bot work properly.
Air condition was only fair in the rooms we had and we needed to keep the balcony door open to cool the room witch, in turn, increased the noise level in the room.

Nice stay, very clean hotel, complementary water every day on room, . Breakfast: nice but a bit limited and crowded, but on weekend til 13:00 ! We survice whole day based on breakfast. There should be more breakfast palces in inner garden. The hotel was recently renovated, but I still expect excellent conf´ditionm there are still some remarks of life, but not disturbing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZurichBrian Very nice stay at Le Meridien Munich
I had a very nice business stay at Le Meridien Munich.
Staff were fantastic and the lobby, restaurant and room were all just top notch.
the location is just opposite the central station so a perfect spot.
My only one criticism is the poor quality of the gym. Its cramped and some of the machines are not working properly. Its something I'm sure they will work on and bring back up to standard.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FQTHON Could be a good Hotel but technic from the last century
Stayed a few times there. Decent location. Nice rooms and most times friendly and supportive staff. But - the technical environment is from the last century. No Wifi access in the rooms. So if you travel with modern devices better choose a different Hotel. Another downside: the breakfast room is always too crowded and the time to wait for an omelete can easily make it to 30 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Veronica65 Great location and nice atmosphere
While the outside looks a bit plain, this is a great location and the interior is very nice. Definitely a hotel catered to business clients, but it was great for tourist as well. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Hannah at the front desk even noticed it was my birthday.
The bar has great drinks and snacks, while a bit expensive, it was delicious.
Highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris999 The Hotel needs a bit more improvement
Our rece stay at the Meridien Munich was very niece, the staff was more the meeting my expectations and warm and welcoming.
The room however needs improvement, the bed is too hard, where in the bathroom the floor is too cold. The carpet could need improvement.
Staying on the 5th floor the corridor smelled bad like a the carpet was unclean or a defictive vacuum cleaner was used. This smell was there is same intensity for both days. The sauna area is too small. The swimming pool is large execllent. The sauna was not working therefore everyone tried to use the steam bath which is too small overall concepted. 6or about 4 people due to space and respect useable. It is also too cold in the relaxing room and the showers are too small and not enough.
The restaurant is very good allthough the staff could be more 5star representing, too much of a standard Munich life behavior.
The parking facility is very good. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jpbjam Le Meridian stay was good with helpful staff
We stayed at Le Meridian Munich on a recent short stay in Munich and were happy with our experience. George, the Concierge, was most helpful with all of our needs. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant too. It was of excellent quality and the staff were very friendly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelersTwo Great hotel in great location
We were happy to spot our hotel as we exited out of the train station. A welcome site after a long overseas flight and train ride. We were upgrade to a beautiful room; however, there was a charge for in-room Wi-Fi which we found surprising. The hotel was very quite and the beds were so comfortable. The only negative was that the wake-up call we requested came 30 minutes late.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Irving6631 Fantastic experience
I really enjoyed my stay at Le Meridien. The entire staff could not have been any nicer and accommodating. The hotel room was spacious, and having a shower was wonderful! I did not opt for the in-room Wi-Fi because I thought it was too expensive, but the lobby had free Wi-Fi so I couldn't complain.
I would definitely return to Le Meridien and I highly recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FRBL Nice hotel in good location
This hotel is located directly across from the main train station and is in a very good central location. I only stayed here one night - booked a Standard city-view room and as a Gold member received a room with a Garden view. The room was spacious and clean, the service was excellent. I would certainly come back here and I would recommend this hotel to others. Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by conall Good hotel, alot of noise from the street at night
The meridien lacks an executive lounge floor and as a starwood platinum member this is a miss. There is alot of noise from outside in the middle of the night and therefore would recommend an "inside room"
Also, as a frequent business traveller, a steam iron would be an improvement rather than the standard.
Fitnes center is very basic and the pool was out of operation

Rated 4 out of 5 by Filips4 Hotel Good for Area
The hotel provides good quality for the area it is in. Convenient to Bahnhof and city center. Room had some issues - tiles in front of shower loose causing room carpet to stay wet. Also, Check-in and out for Gold members handled with everyone else checking in - staff even showed preference on chek-out to "business company" members causing delayed to our check-out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharlieKC Favorite hotel in Munich
I have stayed in numerous hotels in Munich for both work and pleasure. I always come back to this one. It is directly across from the Munich Hauptbahnhof. It is just a short walk to Karlsplatz and the Old Town. The hotel is always impeccable. They bend over backwards to be accommodating in every respect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gilbe Great Hotel & Great Brand!!!
Amazing hotel with a big plus of the open garden to meet with your clients and friends.
Only area to improve that the Jean-Georges Vongerichten services & facilites was not proposed.
However nice and comfortable room which reflects the Le Meridien brand.
Will not hesitate to come back on my next business trip.
All the best to the Le MERIDIEN Munich team

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sidu130401 Comfortable, friendly & helpfull staff.
Good hotel close to the central station. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Only real compliant is that being a regular SPG member doesnt seem to count for much. In this day and age free internet should be a bare minimum for SPG members regradless of status. I lost my Gold recently. Not even a bowl of fruit of a glass of red wine on arrival.

Rated 4 out of 5 by traveller123 Nice Hotel
Very nice and convenient hotel with friendly staff. Generally very high standards.
I just had one issue during the last visit. When I went to use the spa, the area was under construction and could not be used. It would have been good to do the reconstruction of the sauna in the summer and not during the start of Christmas shopping period.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MunichVis Beautiful hotel with great breakfast buffet
Very nice, large, comfortable room
Breakfast Buffet was incredible
Concierge helpful with restaurant reservations and other needs.
Whirlpool in the spa was broken
Maid service was strange. They removed a blanket from the bed and the robe.
The location is surrounded by casinos and strip clubs; but we experienced no problems.

The drain in the shower was clogged and flooded the bathroom. Had to change rooms which was a nuisance that was not needed. Staff responded well to problem and worked it out quickly
Breakfast and lunches were not as good as in past years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by STGcanary Great hotel - shame you have to pay for TV!
Had a lovely stay in Munich to visit the Christmas Markets.
Le Meridien is in a great location, room was perfect, staff very helpful. Overall very relaxing and welcoming.
One niggle is that to watch TV channels or listen to music there is a charge...! When you pay 5* prices, I think that standard TV and music should be included....

Rated 4 out of 5 by AntoC My Recent Stay at LeMeridien
I do not normally fill out reviews however I am a big fan of the Starwood organization and I wanted to share with you my comments.
Having stayed in numerous Starwood resorts and Le Meridiens as well I feel there were a few items that need improvement and do not live up to the Brand Standards.
Here are some comments:
1. The furniture in the bar area is dated and the carpeting should be removed and a hard surface wood or stone.
2. Elevator lobby wall light fixtures are too low. Typically light fixtures are at a minimum of 6'-8" in public areas.
3. Carpet in rooms if not changed to stone or wood should be better maintained. Carpet is stained and not meeting starwood standards.
4. Technology in rooms is extremely lacking. Low voltage connections for USB ports at the work station is that should be upgraded.
5. Outlet (Receptacle) for shaving in the bath room should be dual voltage due to the large international presence.
Overall it is a great hotel and I only wrote a review since I care about Starwood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Baldeagle10 SPG Recognition
As a SPG Gold member I was not offered a room upgrade. Additionally, I tried calling the service extension and for 20 to 25 minutes (literally) no one answered the phone, eventually I had to physically go downstairs to ask for porter service. When I mentioned the issue, he reaction was nonchalant and no apology offered either.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bond Needs improvement
Overall this hotel is good but compared with other hotel chains in the same category there are a few things which might need to be thought about, especially free wi-fi and free parking for hotel guests. In addition the furniture in the rooms especially in the bathroom is a bit old and the carpets should be renewed as well.
