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 Traveller000 Excellent location
Great for access to the old town (walking distance) and elsewhere (across from main train station with direct connections to airport by S-bahn).
Hotel itself was good, rooms reasonably spacious, very quiet, excellent TV (although the controls were annoying - you had to enter the main screen each time it was powered on), excellent bathroom (although a rain shower would have been appreciated), and an amazing bedhead with mood lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cucu1965 Great hotel, great staff
We had a very nice experience at the Meridien Munich, starting with the outstanding welcome of the staff, friendly and efficient. We got an upgrade to a suite on the newly renovated floor. As the wifi wasn't working yet the hotel provided a cable adapter for our computer.
Excellent breakfast as well.
Only minor problem, the bed wasn't particularly comfortable - supposedly king but made out of two jointed singles ... not a big deal anyway.
We'll be back, thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Argy39 Good central Hotel
I stayed here twice on a business trip in the course of a week and found the staff to be excellent on both occasions. Upgraded to an Executive Suite both times in recognition of my Platinum membership.
Concierge were great as well in recommending resturaunts, beer gardens etc The breakfast offering was fairly standard for this level of hotel.
The only gripe I had was the room service pizza that I ordered. They got the topping mixed up but the worst of it was that it was delivered in a box and the base was stuck to the cardboard making it impossible to actually eat the base.
Not sure if I was just unlucky with my choice of room service or not as I did not get it on my first visit.
However, this was really a minor thing and would definitely stay here again and would also recommend it to friends.
Overall an excellent hotel in a good location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dovi Very good
The hotel is very close to the underground train station. Very convenient when its freezing outside. The service in the hotel was impeccable, from the reception staff to the bar and restaurant.
We were upgraded to a beautiful suite number 345 on arrival, it took a little time but was worth the wait. It was very large and clean, with an espresso machine, bar (with fees) internet access at 19 Euro per day. Its free at the lobby and bar.
The reception staff was receptive and polite. Special mention to Suscha at reception which took care of us.
The bar is very nice with a good choice of food and wines. Chi Lap Hoi was very attentive, prompt and polite.
The swimming poor was a little cold, the spa was great after a long day at work.
The restaurant was brilliant, with great staff and particularly extensive breakfast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by George69 Very helpful staff
The Meridien was more than we anticipated. The facility was located near both train and bus transportation. The staff was knowledgeable, helpful and attentive to our needs. They made suggestions and helped book a day trip and train tickets. We were very pleased with the size of the room tnd especially the comfort of the bed. Both the wife and I slept better than we do at home. I recommend this hotel. for comfort, location and quality of staff.

Staff attitude fully meets my expectation at a hotel of this standard, warm, helpful and appealing. I have been very satisfied with the the room I had at the back side of the hotel, which showed the staff's effort to accommodate my request for a quieter room despite I didn't opt to pay for an upgrade.
Suggest to add a water kettle in the room to make great the experience. I would not prefer to bother your staff just for a cup of hot water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texaslady2014 TV programs for English speaking guests
We had a great stay. However, one thing disappointed us: the only English language TV channels were news channels. Now they seemed to have entertainment channels in every other language but English. And then they charged 12-15 € for all of their movies, even old ones like Airplane, only animated movies were 8 €. Come on people, at least get one English language entertainment channel we can watch to relax at night in your comfortable beds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SPGpointking Pleased again
Second visit to this hotel on our recent trip to Oktoberfest. One of my favorite hotels amongst the many in the Starward line. We really looked forward to staying at this hotel again and we were not disappointed. Staff is exceptional,meeting our every need and expectation. Always courteous and friendly with no request being too much trouble. Could not imagine a better physical location in Munich. Look forward to staying here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DutchInDC Unexpectedly surprised
This hotel has everything you want and need. Upon arrival the staff was friendly and efficient. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. And you can't beat the location, right in the middle of Munich where shopping, dining and entertainment is at your doorstep. With the main railway station across the road, this transportation hub can get you all over Munich and Bavaria in no time. Great place to call home while in Munich!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cinelandia A bad day all better.
After arriving late on the train and giving up on pushing on to our destination, we decided to stay in Munich. A short trot from the train station was the Le Meridien. The receptionist set us up with a fantastic room making a bad day all better.
Our only compliant was that the pool closed early on a Saturday night. As it is part of the 'spa" it operated under separate management hours. They should rethink that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SFJoe Two days in Dec 2012 before we flew out of Munich
We have used this hotel before and have had positive experience with both room and the facilities. As a Platinum member my only negative remark was that our room was next to the elevator which I could hear at a low level. But very minimal sound. The indoor pool and sauna were closed which we would have used. I would stay there again because it is a walk acros the street from the main train station and thus a big advantage.

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 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 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 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.

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 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 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 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.
