“Excellent airport hotel - remarkable service”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

We (family of 4 with 2 young kids) stayed at the Kempinski for 1 night on our recent trip to Europe. Coming from a 12 hour flight from Asia it was important to us to be able to "crash down" before continuing the next day to Italy.
The hotel can be easily reached by foot from the Terminal without being too much exposed to the weather (it is all covered). You just need to look our for the signs which can be a bit difficult to spot.
We had booked an Executive Suite and it was a pleasure that upon arrival everything (including the couch being converted into bed + extra bed) was ready. Additionally some nice amenities (especially for the kids were ready available).
Room was a bit odd shaped (L-shape) but this is the only thing to maybe complain about.
Sleep quality was perfect (if we would not have been jet lacked).
Big breakfast buffet for all of us fully included and definitely recommended: the bread roles were the best we had in Germany - [forget about Asia, they do not know how to make them]).
Would definitely stay again if passing through Munich Airport.

Getting to the Munich airport a day early due to fog and rainy driving conditions was one of the best decisions I made heading back home from Bavaria at the end of November. Could have taken the train directly to airport but got a ride and parking was available directly under the hotel. The hotel is located between both terminals and next to a large underground shopping area with fast food and a grocery store and easy access to both terminals. Spent the afternoon swimming and hot tubing in the spa area, had a fabulous meal and then some drinks at the bar then went upstairs and slept soundly with no sound of airplanes at all. Received a ride in the morning to my departing terminal and headed back to Texas all rested. This is certainly a business persons hotel but I felt very comfortable as a single traveling female tourist. Will stay here whenever I leave Munich.

It was clean, comfortable and the check-in and out service was efficient and helpful. Impressive entrance/hobby and extremely quiet given its proximity to the airport. Breakfast was good, with attentive staff.

You really only have two choices when staying at Munich airport: Novotel and the Kempinski. The Kempinski wins in every way. You can walk to the terminal, the food is awesome, the gym is worth using, they have a pool, the building is amazing. I would choose it every time. Available is not the best so I end up in the Novotel about 25% of the time.

On my way back to London from winter vacation. Very friendly welcome at arrival. Room was OK, not the newest. Hotel Lobby is very impressive. Good atmosphere at the bar. Very good breakfast. Service was a bit stretched but tried and was friendly. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: I had a inner court room. Next time i would ask for a room facing the outside.

This was my 1st time to stay at famous Kempinski. I with my family had to catch early flight, arriving previous evening. As it was shortly before Christmas airport's courtyard was arranged as market with skating ring and other attractions.
From such atmosphere we get into cavernous, huge inner courtyard of hotel. Design was something of techno sci-fi. With some effort we found tiny reception area and were greeted by hotel clerk. As I required king size bed when reserving hotel, clerk explained that my room has 2 separate beds, but generously proposed upgrade (for EUR 30 only). I rejected this nice offer out of my thrift.
Then with hand he pointed out direction to lift to our room- weakly lighted spot about 40 m away. Walking there we found out that our way was blocked by guests of restaurant having nice and populous party. After finding some circumvention around party we got into our room, expecting further development of techno sci-fi design there. Alas, instead we found traditional, 2nd half of XX century furniture.
Knowing that hotel compensates not high enough room rate with excessive wi-fi charges, we kept our devices at bay. But big was our surprise, finding 1 bottle of water and couple of complimentary Nespresso capsules.
And even bigger surprise was one big bed- made from 2 separate but well joined beds.

Kempinski Hotels is always a guarantee of quality service and good style . Although this hotel is not new , it is elegant , comfortable, clean . The staff is very attentive and friendly. This is the only hotel located inside of Munich Airport, between Terminals 1 and 2. It is very convenient for transit passengers , because you will spend time on arrival to check in the room for 10-15 minutes. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel provides free wi-fi internet access throughout. It features a large inside pool with two types of saunas (free), a solarium and massage (extra charge) . In-room safe , air conditioning , bathrobes, slippers , fine cosmetics and shampoos. Breakfast at the hotel is not included and is available for a fee. Rooms are soundproofed and have a wonderful proximity of the airport does not bother you . Of disadvantages: the hotel has two buildings that are connected only through the reception hall. Guest one of the blocks to cross hall in a robe that uncomfortable.

Room Tip: Book a room in a building, which is located above the reception. You will be more convenient to use...
