Aloft hotel, Munich

I recently spent a weekend in Munich on my trip through Germany. While looking for hotels, I found the new, cool Aloft Hotel, which is located right across from the train station (Haubtbahnhof), next to a lovely German restaurant. The area around train stations can usually be a bit shady, but not here in Munich. It’s busy with lots of people coming and going, and close to busses and subways.

ALOFT HOTEL ROOM

I was welcomed to Aloft Hotel by a friendly staff member at the reception. After checking in, I took the elevator to the 5th floor which would be my home for the next two nights.

I pushed the door open and I gasped. This wasn’t a room. It was a suite! A king size bed stood against the far wall, covered in the most soft and inviting bedclothes in simple white. On the other side was a sitting area with a large sofa and a couple of small tables. Next to it was a sac chair, calling my name.

Welcome present from the hotel

On the table under the windows, I found a magazine with Justin Bieber and a welcome present from the hotel; fruits, a muffin, wine gums – and a selfie stick! The hipster-meter just exploded.

My room was a 30 m2 suite with a 40-inch TV, furnished methodically with modern furniture. The room was remarkably larger and more spacious in real life than on the website’s photos so I was positively surprised. With a street view, I thought it would be noisy, but it wasn’t at all. I didn’t hear any noise from the city or neighboring rooms.

Right next to the entrance was the bathroom. A sink, a large table and mirror lined the left wall. It had a walk-in shower and one of those cool bowl sinks that sit on top of the table.

HIP RESTAURANT AND LOBBY

The reception, lounge, café and bar is placed in an open-space room with high ceiling. The staff is there 24/7, which is comforting, and the interior and furniture is inviting and stylish.

Aloft Hotel also has an internet area for guests.

The cafe is a self-service area with a refrigerator, microwave, pretzels, a fresh newspaper and many other things that belong in a German kitchen. In the morning, fruits, oats, bread and beverages are served, and later in the day it’s turned into a cafe.

FINAL THOUGHTS ABOUT ALOFT HOTEL

I really enjoyed staying at Aloft Hotel, Munich. The hotel is a classy choice with a young, hip vibe, perfect for business travelers and young travelers. The location is super convenient, opposite the train station and 1,5 km from Marienplatz. I liked the cool interior and atmosphere, the room was lovely and the bed was sleep-inducing!

I only have one remark and it has to do with the internet connection. There was an issue with the WiFi connection for Mac computers, meaning I (as a Mac user) couldn’t access the Internet for two days. As a blogger who needs to be online more or less 24/7, that’s impossible to work with. I really liked Aloft Hotel so I hope they’ll look into it for future guests.
