What better way to spend my first night back in Munich, Germany than a night at Mövenpick Airport Hotel? Having stayed here once before in 2016, I came back for a second visit because I enjoyed it so much.
As I learned at dinner, Mövenpick Hotels is part of the same ownership as the renowned ice-cream line and chocolate bar line of the same name. Located a little out of the way of the airport in Hallbergmoos, my best friend Raphael and I took a taxi to the airport (which cost 17 Euros). You can also access the hotel by the train plus a bus from the airport, but due to my large suitcase and our desire to have a quick and easy trip to the airport, we opted for a taxi.
The staff at Mövenpick is wonderful, very friendly, professional, and often humorous. They made me feel like a princess during my overnight stay and I have only good things to say about this hotel. The rooms are spacious, with a large and comfortable queen sized bed (or you can choose from two twins, as part of your options) and cheerful bright pink and white decor. The lively feel of the hotel offers a nice change from the stress of flying and the impersonal nature of airports.
Raphael and I ventured down to dinner at around 9 pm, during which we were served by a professional and kind waitress named Susanna S., who graciously allowed me to change my order of pumpkin soup after it had arrived to tomato soup, which turned out to be the best tomato soup I have ever had yet. The kitchen even gave me two huge bars of Mövenpick chocolate as a parting gift, and owing to it being my birthday, they offered us two flutes of rose champagne as a present. Raphael had a steak hamburger with wedge-shaped fries and vanilla ice cream with a generous helping of syrup. I should note: Guests are offered a bread basket with two types of dip as a free appetizer to start.
We slept very soundly in our room, which is spacious enough to host an armchair, large window overlooking the gardens, desk, and large tv on top of a dresser. The bathroom is also large, with a vanity detached from the washroom and plenty of mirrors. There are plush white robes and slippers should you want them, and lots of channels on the TV to watch, so I was able to catch some of the tennis matches going on at Indian Wells.
The next morning, after a breakfast down in the eating area — a very pleasant place as it is surrounded by glass windows and a high vaulted glass ceiling looking out to a lawn and wooden pagoda outside — we filled up on the continental breakfast buffet and their amazing cheese-filled omelets, which is complimentary to your stay. I took a quick refresher in the sauna, which was in use by three other guests at the time, but they were all very friendly as well.
By the time we checked out at noon, I was wishing we could extend our stay much longer! Mövenpick did everything they could to ensure I had a clean, comfortable, relaxing visit and made me feel like I was part of a warm, welcoming community of professional hospitality employees. I would most certainly stay at Mövenpick again, even though it is slightly out of the way from the airport!
Another thing to note: Mövenpick offers DB passes, so you can buy a full day pass for all zones at the hotel before taking the bus a quick ways to the S-bahn. There is a convenience store right across the street in case you forget something the hotel does not provide, but rest assured that you stay will most likely need nothing else.
