Kempinski Hotel Airport Munchen Munich Reviews
Quality, Service and Convenience at Munich Airport Jul 19, 2014
If you find yourself in need of an overnight stopover in Munich, then the Kempinski hotel is convenient and is right at the airport in between the first two terminals. Exiting the airport, turn right and follow the signs to the hotel. It's rather a stunning looking place in architectural ways if you like glass, sweeping arcs and large open spaces. It is quite modern looking in this regard and to say it is large is an understatement. This has to be one of the largest lobby areas I have ever seen. The hotel was designed by Helmut Jahn, a Chicago architect. It is 4 stories high and features a 1400 m^2 glass atrium and garden. It's not a cheap stay, but you do get what you pay for here, in ambiance, comfort and amenities.
The hotel has a total of 343 rooms and 46 suites. You have a choice between double twin or king sized beds. All the rooms have a desk, mini bar, comfy chair, and cable TV. There is Internet on TV, but you have to pay extra for the wifi though, and it's ridiculously expensive. The hotel has a spa, indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam bath, gym, solarium and massage/beauty room. Basically all the amenities you could ask for in a hotel of this quality. The onsite restaurants include Charles Lindbergh and Safran, and the cuisine is international with a variety of tastes to satisfy most everyone. The Charles Linbergh I found particularly nice for its tasteful, artistic and creative aeronautics motif. I have some photographs to show here rather than try to describe it. A better sense can be gathered in this way.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, though a bit plain and uninspired in decor I would have to say. The bathrooms, on the other hand are really quite nice with a combination of tile and marble that I found appealing. The staff here are very friendly, professional and accommodating. Their enthusiasm to please and make your stay a pleasant one was very welcomed. Even in conversational ways, they seem genuinely engaged with you beyond just being the customer. I did not really encounter anything to complain about here, except perhaps the very expensive wifi. I never quite understand why hotels do this, and suppose because they can. No matter, and one can do without it for the evening. Just based on my one night stay here I can recommend this hotel for quality, service and convenience.
The breakfast in the morning was quite good. The buffet variety here is excellent, and the service for offering coffee and 'special juice' is excellent as well. There are a variety of newspapers in German and English available for morning reading material. It's a cut above the service you usually get in such a buffet style breakfast. As this is an airport hotel, I found this a relaxing and enjoyable start to my morning and with a refreshed attitude to make my journey home. This kind of experience can make all the difference from a difficult time the day before in turning your attitude around and adding a skip to your step for the day ahead.
