Rosewood Munich

Rosewood Munich

Munich hasn’t had an upscale hotel opening in more than a decade, and the Rosewood is already considered the best hotel in Munich. The hotel’s winning combo of repurposed history, inviting public spaces, elegantly appointed large-scale rooms, a sceney jazz bar, and charming spa area with signature Rosewood treatments makes this old-meets-new property one to reckon with.

Comprising of  two historical buildings: a former aristocratic residence called the Palais Neuhaus-Preysing, dating from 1703, and the one-time headquarters of the State Bank of Bavaria, built in 1894.  While the imposing historical facade—featuring sculptures crafted from Bavarian limestone—remains, the inside is reimagined by local architectural firm Hilmer Sattler Architekten Ahlers Albrecht in an airy, contemporary style, while preserving some of the original elements such as the grand staircase and Baroque frescoes in the lobby. 

If the public areas evoke a certain splendour, upstairs the rooms are intended to feel residential, more like apartments than hotel rooms. Ranging from 36-39sqm, they have a defined living space, with a sofa, armchair and dining table, as well as a separate entrance hall with somewhere to lay your hat and stow your boots, along with pegs and a console table.

Add to that the hotel’s supremely central location in Munich’s old town—just a few minutes from the tourist favourite Marienplatz (home of the Rathaus-Glockenspiel, which chimes and charms two to three times a day) and the Englischer Garten – bigger than New York’s Central Park!.
