Hotel looks very simple and boring outside, but interiors are nice. Lobby area is lovely and I think it is the only part that has been renovated recently. Rooms are fine, althouhg not my style, but definitely need an urgent renovation. Carpets, furniture, bedding, all extremely old. TV is ancient. Bathrooms are great with huge bathtubs. Then again toiletteries are not good enough for a 5 star property. Breakfast was awesome. I have mixed feelings about the staff. Some were great, then again some, especially during check in and check out were not at at all helpful. Location is good, just a short walking distance drom Marienplatz. Overall we were happy with the hotel but cant really say that this hotel deserves to be a leading hotels of the world member.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful. My family and I were given a lot of attentions and were kindly treated during our stay. The facilities are very good, you can use a computer in the lobby for free, including the printer; the wellness area is also good, a quiet place to relax in the whirlpool after a shopping day, for example. The location is excellent. All in all, it's worth the price.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms overlooking the Palace of Justice are very nice

This hotel is a simple yellow box from the outside. Once you enter it is well furnished and the rooms and bathrooms are large, ellegant and well supplied. It is close to the train station and close to the center of Munich, both less than five minutes walking.
The restaurant has nice food but it is very expensive. You can order food to the room but also at high prices.
It has a small bar where drinks are served until late hours.
When we stayed there most other guests were foreigners. A large number of guests from the Middle East and from Latin America

I had wanted to stay at this hotel for a long time, and finally got a room rate I could justify (175 Euros). I was not disappointed. This is the nicest hotel I have stayed in this year, and the best since the Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg last year.

Notably, this hotel is a member of the “Leading Small Hotels of the World,” the third of these I have stayed at in the past two years. I know nothing about this association, but I have been impressed at each of these hotels, so I have started to believe this is a designation that warrants consideration when choosing a hotel.

The exterior of the hotel is deceiving – it is non-descript and unattractive, but the interior is great. I’ll let the photos do the talking, but in short, my room was clean, large, beautifully and elegantly decored, quiet, with high ceilings, comfortable bed, ample closet space, and a very nice bathroom. The room was well equipped with umbrella, safe, bathrobes, and mini-bar. There were some nice touches, such as complimentary bottled water, chocolate, and apples. Service was friendly, quick, and very professional.

Nevertheless, there were some missed opportunities. Food was exorbitantly expensive; I’m not sure I have ever seen hotel food priced so high. The air conditioner in the room didn’t seem to be working, but I could open the windows wide and it was cool outside but got street noise. The TV was curiously old and outdated. No ironing board. In-room coffee facilities would have been good, but there was none.

Despite some of the shortcomings, this is a great hotel and a really good option in the Karlsplatz area.

Hope this helps.

I stayed in the Konigshof for two nights on a trip to Munich mainly for business, using the very good Leading Hotels of the World membership card (which is much recommended as it provides some valuable perks including free breakfasts at the member hotels). The room was fairly clean and well furnished (carpet stained and all a bit in need of redecoration, but basically comfortable to luxurious). The service was extremely professional and diligent. A cramped lounge on the ground floor, a spacious restaurant with a good reputation on the first floor. The hotel is comfortable but has two drawbacks - it is pricey and it is in a dreadful location, surrounded on three sides by Munich's busiest trafffic providing a continuous row that the double glazing did not completely eliminate. There are other hotels which are as comfortable and less noisy in Munich.
