Time to jump back to my time spent in Munich and to present you the two exceptional design hotels that I’ve got the chance to discover. I always say that the place you are staying in when you are travelling sets the whole disposition of your entire trip and by the look at the photos I hope you can say that even constant rain in Munich couldn’t ruin it.
So let’s begin with Cortiina Hotel. Where do I even start? I guess with the location cause it’s the one I always check first. Cortiina is situated right in the heart of Munich surrounded by the obvious attractions as Marienplatz and the spectacular 19th-century net-gothic Rathaus just in two minutes walking distance.
And now to my favourite part – design. The whole hotel radiates harmony and it can be seen in every little detail. A great use of natural materials such as stone pine, bronze, linen, and bog oak are put together with warm and rich earthy tones to create a harmonious arrangement and a one of a kind ambiance. Once I made it to my room after an exhausting flight from Paris I suddenly felt like I’m home. The rooms have a distinct style that can’t be mistaken with anything else. But the thing that truly caught my attention was the fully equipped kitchenette right in the middle of my room. How cool is that? And as much as I was tempted to use my cooking skills at 10pm when I arrived, I called the room service instead which very quickly had me sorted with a delicious dinner.
And now on my second stay – the Louis Hotel. After you see the resemblance with Cortiina it’s not hard to guess that Louis Hotel was opened by the same hotelier. And it bears the same chic appeal: floors and tables of oiled local wood, doors with woven rattan detailing, handmade desks, and Italian fabric fittings. So, once again a great attention to details. It is refined with nothing overdone which can easily lead you to its Japanese influence. Speaking of which, if you are looking for an outstanding dining experience in Munich, the Emiko restaurant at Louis hotel is your place to check. My mouth’s watering just remembering the taste. But make sure to book a table ahead as from what I’ve heard it’s quite popular in Munich so it might get busy.
All in all, I had a wonderful stay both at the Cortiina and Louis Hotel and if you as me are a keen appreciator of rare vintages or you are always looking for absolutely unique and exceptional places to stay in, I’ve got these two design hotels to offer you a truly unforgettable stay in the heart of Munich.
