Bayerischer Hof

Promenadepl. 2–6, Munich, Bavaria, 80333, Germany

There's the Michelin-starred Atelier, the swanky suites, the rooftop Blue Spa and Lounge with panoramic city views, fitness studio, pool, private cinema, and to top it all, suites in Palais Montgelas, the adjoining early-19th-century palace. Yes, it would be easy to pigeonhole the Bayerische Hof as just another expensive luxury hotel. But this hotel, opened in 1841, is an almost unique combination of luxury, history, and accessibility. Münchners, for example, are encouraged to visit the traditional Bavarian restaurant, while it is also a top jazz venue. Even King Ludwig I of Bavaria paid regular visits to take a "royal bath," when his own residence lacked hot running water. When meeting someone at "the bar," or "restaurant," specify which one: there are seven bars (including a night club) and five restaurants.
