I checked out the brand new Andaz Munich Schwabinger Tor this week and was very impressed.
Hyatt’s eighth hotel in Germany is a beautiful stone edifice located in the heart of Munich. The lobby and other common areas are modern and classy.
I was assigned a deluxe room (more on that in a later post), which was huge as far as non-suites go. At over 700 square feet, there was plenty of room to move around. Designed in an open floor-plan style, it included a large bathroom with a huge soaking tub, three closets, a large couch, a desk, and a dining table. Even the smallest rooms at this property are above-average in size.
The wellness area of the hotel includes a beautiful indoor pool, two saunas, and a steam room. I’d say the hotel is still figuring out this part of the property. The tile floor was so hot in the 95ºC sauna that I burned my feet. Furthermore, the fire sprinklers went off in the steam bath, rendering it inoperable. I’m sure the hotel will figure that out, but in the meantime, wear slippers or sandals as you walk inside the sauna.
The breakfast spread in The Lonely Broccoli restaurant was lovely…a classic German buffet breakfast. The restaurant styles itself as “Munich’s first Modern Meat House” and I look forward to dining there next time (hopefully when I am not alone…I hate eating alone in a restaurant).
I’ll publish a full review shortly. In short, though, I give this hotel my stamp of approval and look forward to returning for more than one night.
