At the end of July, I was to attend a business conference in Munich.  The conference hotel was fully booked so I had to find some place quickly.  Turning to New York Times for suggestions, I booked a room at the Louis Hotel.  As the rate was about the same as the conference hotel, it was within my budget.  Its notable features: its central location (Viktualienmarkt, just off Marienplatz), the hotel’s Japanese restaurant (Emiko), and the room interior.  Below is a mini tour of my room.  I will likely stay there again on my next visit.

Claustrophobic hallway with room numbers printed on the lights, but copper panel on each door (what for ?). 

My room is a “market deluxe” grade room with windows facing the market.   Note the untreated wooden floor (I did not miss the standard wall-to-wall carpet but was worried about splinters on my feet).  I guess the theme here is to use as much natural materials as possible.

Bose ipod docking station, Jacob Jensen telephone.

Check out the surprisingly well-stocked drinks cabinet in the room.An internal window allows direct view of the shower from the bedroom.

Yellow rubber duck was provided by the hotel. The same type of rattan screen is also found on the back of the chair and sofa.

An interesting thing in the room is this little tower.  The upholstered finish matches the other pieces of furniture.

A minibar, a DVD player and a TV is completely hidden from view inside the tower.   No wires poking out, nothing.

Louis Hotel is apparently a member of Design Hotels – a marketing group, the web site of which I highly recommend a visit, if you are looking for an interesting hotel.  Incidentally, I blogged about one of their member hotels in Playa del Carmen last year – I did not stay there, nor did I know about the group then – check out my post on Hotel Deseo.
