The Charles is well located and is a clean, up to date place to stay. What stands out the most is the front desk and concierge staff - always smiling, always helpful. It made our stay extra pleasant. They also have a great breakfast buffet and a most relaxing bar - sometimes there is live music!

I cannot say enough about this Hotel! I would race back to Munich just to have another amazing experience. The Charles is not only beautiful, but has one of the most amazing staff and services of any hotel we have had the pleasure of visiting, The rooms were large and the beds were so very comfortable. Sophia’s Restaurant and Bar were so outstanding that we had dinner there three nights in a row!
