Having stayed in other Sofitels around the world, our hopes were high for it's outpost in Munich.Unfortunately we were disappointed.
While the location next door to the main train station and the 15-minute walk to the Marienplatz certainly scored points, these were the best aspects of our stay there..not what you would expect for a hotel group with this reputation.
The rooms were very dark (possibly to hide the dust) and shabby with poor ventilation leaving us no option but to open our room door after showering.The much-touted gym and pool facilities were also a let-down with a limited number of equipment in the gym and a pool that could only be described as resembling an 'underwater cave'..underlit with hidden alcoves and low ceilings in places...nice for lounging after a spa treatment but not for those who'd like to exercise the limbs after a long trip or go for a dip with children.The 5 o'clock limit on children under 12 in the gym/pool area also restricts family usage in the early evening.
On a positive note, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the beds as always in Sofitel were extremely comfortable...all in all, save your money and stay somewhere else as this was certainly not worth the price.
