                                Excellent, highly informative and cooperative staff. Central location within few minutes from the city center. Beautiful interiors with nicely furnished rooms. High standard of cleaniness. Wide selection in the breakfast buffet. The restuarant very tasefully furnished with nice garden view.

                                Overly expensive. No free service what so ever. Very expensive minbar, room service and restaurants. Despite being a five star hotel there was No available free Wifii even in the main lounge.

                                We were very impressed by the friendly and very helpful staff.

                                Felt like we were in an arabian creche. Children running up and down our corridor & clothes hanging on the balcony???? We spend two weeks in Germany and stayed in 9 different hotels and this truly was disapointing, we thought we saved the best for last.

                                Restaurant was expensive with only a small choice, although good quallity. Badly behaved and noisy children in the restaurant. WiFi was costly at 10 Euros/hour

                                30 Euro each for breakfast is very expensive ........ think it may have been worth it as it was excellent. Fine as we travelled as a couple - if my kids had been there would have been unaffordable!

                                Enjoyed it two years ago. Quite place.

                                Rooms smells smoke, requested to change and they did to another room that smelled food/curry, and spots showed on the carpet. Very disapointed.

                                This was our second time staying at The Charles and it was every bit as wonderful as the first time. Great place to stay, great location to take in the Christmas markets and shopping. Staff was attentive and overall a delightful experience and we look forward to our next trip to Munich.

                                The only negative thing I could say was not to bother with the breakfast buffet as in my opinion there is not a breakfast on earth that is worth $90.00 for two people for eggs, rolls and the typical breakfast buffet you would find at any hotel. There are plenty of places to eat a nice breakfast within walking distance for much much less.

                                Attentive, solution-focused Concierge- Service. Excellent shower, bath and bathroom design. Lighting good. Bed and Linen superb. Nice mini- platter of chocolates and fruit every evening. Reliable room-service, professional housekeeping. Breakfast choice good. Fruit very fresh.

                                However, it was not possible to plug own hairstyling device into bathroom electrical socket, as the voltage was for shavers only. No other place with mirror in room, to style hair with own device. Room chilly at night. Thermostat did not respond quickly or adequately. Hotel's own hairdrier too basic ( at 1000 w) and has no nozzle. Restaurant unimaginative. Grilled fish ( 'Steinbutt') portion too small and , overcooked and dry. Caesar Salad a mushy disaster of shredded lettuce drenched in sweetish cocktail-mayonnaise. Chef , pls note: Waldorf Astoria Hotel, ny, for authentic recipe ! Not enough floral displays in hotel. Restaurant draughty at night. Piano-bar music audible in restaurant.Continental breakfast overpriced at Euros 30.00.

                                The speedy response to an unforgivable error. See below

                                I was assured by reception, on my arrival, that I had been allocated a non smoking room. Wrong. When I opened the door to my room (426) I was hit by a wall of cigarette smoke/smell which permeated every corner of the room. Either your reception had given me an incorrect room, or your housekeeping staff are not up to their job, or somebody had been using the room just prior to my arrival as a "smoking den". At 23.30 it was the last thing I needed after a long tiring day. Fortunately your reception responded speedily and courteously . I wonder what would have happened had the hotel been fully booked that night. I look forward to hearing how such a situation could have arisen. A.G. McClellan

                                The floor of toilet room had many dirty spot. I don't know whether it was a problem of tiles itself or problem of cleaning, but it was uncomfortable.
