Price Range: Affordable 4*star – good for those who want to be luxurious
Neighbourhood: Away from the crowdy main Munich area – however close to a local beer house
Hotel Atmosphere: Clean but the buffet breakfast is a let down – no real German influences or delicious pastries – The Louis Hotel – sister hotel seems better and more enticing

Stop: MUNICH: The best area to stay in Munich
Some decisions in life are easy.
When planning a trip, the two hardest choices always plague me, being:
1. Where to eat
2. Where to live
Fortunately for me, my stay in Munich was not difficult when it came to deciding on how to make the most of my three day stay in a city that offers, history, good food and excellent shopping.
Although from recent trips, Marientplatz was my initial place to base myself, I was happy to find a little hotel named Cortiina for my second visit to the city of pretzels and refreshing beer.
Being an advocate for, living and breathing all things German during my stay in Munich, I was slightly disappointed with the food during breakfast, with a lack of German food. But with fresh fruit and bread on offer, I forgot my stomach pains for pretzel and sausages in the morning and readily indulged in the crispy croissants that all my fellow guests devoured.
Cortiina Hotel beckons all travelers with a flair for new innovation to spend at least one night in their clean and comfortable rooms. Whilst there was no view from my room, the spacious bedroom area feels like a high end hotel yet with the innovative décor opening into the bathroom, offer guests a slight Japanese feel with the paper and wooden walls.
For those wanting to experience a little more innovation and luxury, the sister hotel, The Louis Hotel is a perfect choice. With the V market directly below the hotel, a rooftop bar and terrace to kick back and relax on those sweating heat waves typical for the city, it’s a great hotel to run away to. Shoppers can feel slightly at ease in knowing the busiest and most expensive street where all the big names like Gucci and bally are found, is only a short 2 minute walk away.
