I visited Munich for the second time in as many weeks and this time having seen the rather amazing Kempinski Airport Hotel on my last trip I decided to stay,  it’s built into a hanger type glass building right in the airport complex The Hotel is located right between the two terminals.

Arrived on the Ukraine International Airways flight from Kiev to Munich Airport the only airport with a brewery, the beer is great and cheaper than most in town, also its landside and well frequented by local people.

The Kempinski Hotel is a short walk from the terminals without any necessity to go outside at all and, is easily reached by road, train or taxi. The hotel is on two sides of the hanger type building lots of glass very attractive with large bookcases type shelves filled with geraniums, the reception and some rooms are on one side, there are rooms apposite the reception and the guest services. The Charles Lindberg Restaurant, the Night Flight Bar a very comfortable place to meet your clients or friends is on this side as well.

The reception is light and airy. I found the staff very welcoming in particular In some cases a slight hitch means that you get to know the hotel and what is has to offer much better, in my case my reservation wasn’t found, however I was attended to by Martina and Laura on the reception, they were pleasant, extremely helpful, they found me a very nice room saying the any problems could be sorted tomorrow which would be Monday and for the slight inconvenience my room was upgraded.

This slight problem led me to meet Lisa of guest relations and again extremely helpful and professional. I found out that Kempinski take any errors very seriously.  A beautiful bowl of fruit placed in my room very welcome it was too.

My room was extremely comfortable and looked over the gardens towards the airport; the rooms are sound proofed so being at the airport is not a discomfort in any way. Decorations is wood toned easy to relax in with very comfortable double beds , there would be room for another bed for a child in the room. The room is around 30meters square so plenty of room, there are good connections for your laptop, mobile phone charging and a high speed internet connection, the room had a Nespresso machine. I found the 24 hour service from the concierge front desk was great, my internet connection didn’t work , someone came from the front desk at 1130 at night and fixes the connection for me, turns out the system needed rebooting, again service polite helpful and courteous.

The bathroom had all that you would expect of a 5 star property and one really nice touch they placed a hand towel on the bathroom counter and arranged my toiletries carefully on it, that was first and will show in my photos.

The Charles Lindbergh restaurant is comfortable restaurant, with good ambience and seating on settees and the usual tables and chairs.  Service is attentive and courteous.

I stayed for three nights. I found that the Charles Lindberg Restaurant for breakfast with cereals, fresh juices, cold cuts, salads, hot dishes, eggs to order, selection of freshly baked breads,  altogether really good selection a great way to start any day.

I had the opportunity to meet with Martina Grosswald the marketing communications manager. Martina called me to see if all was ok from my slight inconvenience at check-in, we had the opportunity to have lunch together in the Charles Lindbergh Restaurant. I was keen to learn more about this uniquely built and attractive hotel.

I try the food there on one evening excellent, with a lighter menu, with enough to satisfy your hunger and, a tasty selection of sandwiches

The Kempinski Hotel Munich Airport is a great airport hotel with good professional staff anxious to help and management is very visible so staffs are on their toes

I found all the comforts that a seasoned traveler, an occasional traveler or a holiday traveler, or anyone between flights, there is something for everyone here

I will most surely stay at Kempinski again in the future
