Very good hotel. Position is fantastic on the Viktualienmarkt, spacious rooms with excellent fit out and a Germany meets Japan aesthetic, good restaurant but pricey, quiet. Friendly service at reception but need to lift their game on basic Munich tourist knowledge ( eg where is ....?). Not outstanding value but you get what you pay for.

My colleagues and I have been staying here for over 5 years and given how much we travel and experience hotels - to find one that you actually enjoy coming back to is rare. The Louis is a beautifully designed hotel of you get one of the larger rooms and not so beautifully designed if you get one of the small ones. (The smaller ones are just OK for one night.) The location is superb - just on the city centres food market and just a stroll around there will make you long for a bratwurst and beer, or two, or three. It's a handy walk to the opera and the mainly pedestrian centre and a large number of great bars and restaurants. The Jaopanese restaurant in the hotel is superb and the bar team do a great vodka martini. (Stirred, not shaken - as it should be.) The staff are friendly most of the time, but can be a bit officious. The staff at breakfast are specially chosen for their ability to forget. (They can sometimes forget almost every order - but they're very nice about it.)
But don't let that put you off - in a town full of tradition and straight-laced establishments - this one has sex appeal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the market. And with a bath and shower.

I highly recommend the Louis Hotel in Munich. Just steps from the Market in the Marienplatz. Wonderful food and beer just accross the street, the main train station the Haptbanhoff is a 15 minute walk but there is a stop in Marienplatz. You can take the train from the Airport the S8 I believe. Just stay here you'll love it.

The location between the Victualingmarkt and Marienplatz and 1 block to the subway was really perfect. It is also walking distance to a lot of great restaurants. The hotel is new, nicely decorated and although the rooms are not huge, the space is maximized and you have everything you need. We stayed there 6 nights and I would not hesitate to stay there again. I thought the desk staff was extremely helpful. They all spoke excellent English and went out of their way to help us. You need to put a flag out to get your room serviced in a timely fashion. Otherwise it could be late afternoon before they come.

We only ate at the Japanese restaurant for breakfast. The service was very very slow. The wait staff was very nice but you shouldn't be in a hurry. It was also expensive. The buffet was OK. It had some unusual Asian and vegan options. You can order eggs but you need to be very specific in what you ask for. I had one good omelet and two days later I got basically hard fried eggs in the shape of an omelet with no cheese in sight. Don't even try the restaurant if they are very busy. They served us in the lobby and it was 30 minutes before we got coffee. They totally forgot about us. Cheaper options are a cafe in the market which has several nice continental breakfast options with muesli and great croissants. There is also a Starbucks on the corner and a bakery in the market. The cafe was half the price of the breakfast in the hotel.

Overall, the hotel is a great find for its location, amenities, service and value. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Higher floors especially on weekends since the restaurant in the courtyard is fairly busy and noisy...

As mentioned in many previous reviews the location could not be better situated in Munich. We had a wonderful view overlooking the market and a very large room tastefully decorated and uncommonly large by European standards. The entire Hotel was very upbeat and stylish and reflected in the design of the furnishings of the room which yet again were extremely comfortable and accommodating for travel. I can not begin to express more thanks to the staff who went out of their way to help us with any questions or problems we had during our stay. Even to helping us understand our delivered rental car on our day of departure as the delivery driver spoke no English. Unbelievable help from a very friendly and willing staff. Our stay could not have been more ideal!

Room Tip: Definitely choose a higher floor overlooking the Viktualienmarket.

As others have noted, the location across from the Viktualienmarkt in the center of old Munich is near-perfect. A short walk from the Marienplatz and many other attractions, it's in an area filled with great shops and restaurants.

The hotel was clearly designed by architects with a high level of aesthetic sensibility. Design and finishes are exceptionally well thought out--it's not your typical modern hotel, but one with a unique style of its own.

The staff were always helpful and the high level of service matches high level of design. And don't miss the Japanese restaurant--dinner there was a highlight of the stay.

We stayed for two nights right after Oktoberfest and couldn't have more pleased with our selection. It is wonderfully situated overlooking the Viktualienmarket, a one minute walk to Marienplatz yet quiet and off the beaten track. The hotel is very stylish with spacious rooms very tastefully decorated. A very large bath with full shower/tub added to the roomy feel. We had a great view of the market and we were surprised that the room was so quiet. We enjoyed a great meal in the Japanese restaurant on site and judging from the number of patrons on a weeknight it must be one the THE places to dine in Munich. We had a great stay!
