A place to Avoid

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 1, 2012

The Sofitel Munich was touted as a great place to stay in Munich so I booked it in advance.  I wouldn't give it better than a D+.  The Spartan rooms were card controlled so your power gets turned off (or not turned on at all) if you don't have the card plugged into the wall.  It's an inconvenient system that works for the hotel but it is painful to use for the guest.  Cold hardwood floors, the room was small, the (handicap-like) shower was a joke and the bed was uncomfortable.  I ordered room service twice and the food was not edible either time, they are cooking with some disgusting oils.  If this is a French hotel they have lost all touch with what is palatable.  The Sofitel burger at 18 € (that's a $ 23.40 burger) sucked and it was 21 € for a steak sandwich which should have been wonderful not terrible.  Even the 25 € veal wiener schnitzel was so bad that it was thrown away after one bite by my family.

The bedding and towels at the Sofitel were full of hairs and the "free" Internet access required a repeated log-in over and over again . . torture to use it without paying the hotel for their "premium" access.

Sofitel Munich prices seemed like a good deal at 178 € per night if paid in advance but I had 3 rooms and had to leave early due to a real emergency.  They kept 2 nights X 3 rooms X 178€ = 1,068 € of mine and then asked me if I had a good stay.  Were they kidding me?  They rented out those rooms again the same day, ripped me off, and they could care less about my emergency.  The Sofitel has brought the definition of customer service to a new low, "screw the customer" is the Sofitel way.  I would avoid the hotel at all cost.

Unique Quality: Lobby looks good for taking pictures

Dorint Sofitel Bayerpost is located next to Munich`s main train station. It is an about 5 minutes walk from famous Karlsplatz (Stachus). Although it is a business hotel I immediately liked it, it is an old building but inside you find great modern design. Rooms are a bit small, I couldn`t imagine to stay there with a person I do not know very well. From the bedroom goes a window to the bathroom (there is a jalousie :)), in the uprade rooms there is a bath tube and an extra shower and a toilet- everything is seperated by glass sliding doors. The cheaper rooms are equipped only with the shower.
Staff is very attentive and friendly. There is a nice spa lounge with a small gym (one threadmill, several crosstrainers, some bikes...), a sauna (which was closed) and a very nice dark swimming pool (it feels like swimming in a cave) with jacuzzi and waterfall. From the swimming pool you can even observe the reception desk through a little window.
The cheapest rates start from 120 EUR (room only)- which is not that much for the comfort of this hotel. Breakfast costs around 20 EUR and is really good.

Directions: next to the main train station
