How to get to the hotel
Sofitel Munich Bayerpost is right next door to the main Munich train station, which makes getting to/from the airport and other areas within Munich so easy. You can of course catch a taxi or a shuttle from the airport however the train is a much cheaper and (in my opinion) easier option.
Arrival and check in
We arrived into the hotel late afternoon/early evening and were welcomed as soon as we stepped foot in the front door, we were offered assistance with our bags and guided to the reception area for check in. The check in process was quick and easy, the staff member explained where breakfast was and what time as well as explaining where the Spa was and what services the hotel offered.
We stayed in the Luxury Room with a very large and cozy armchair, and the exclusive Sofitel MyBed™. You can also enjoy 2 bottles of Evian water daily, Bose Sound System, 48″ flat-screen TV which can be paired with your phone so you can watch Netflix on TV or even check out your photos from the day on the big screen.
I wish now that we had booked one of the two “SO fit suites” equipped with professional home fitness equipment including a Technogym treadmill or cardio bike, free weights and a gym ball.
The natural stone spa bathroom features a large bath (with just enough room to fit both of us!) and a rainfall shower and underfloor heating. Hermès products can be enjoyed in the bathroom.
Food and Drink options
The morning breakfast buffet was served at the Schwarz & Weiz restaurant, offering plently of hot and cold selections to get your day started off right. They boast the best Croissants in whole Munich, finest Munich “Weißwurst”, freshly sliced Vulcano Bacon and delicious French cheese.
The room service menu is from their exclusive Brasserie menu and the Sofitel De-Light range, giving you plenty to choose from.
We enjoyed dinner in the DÉLiCE La Brasserie (French cuisine) restaurant on the hotel grounds on our last night. The food and service were both incredible however we did find that the serving seizes (given the price) were fairly minimal. The deer was cooked to perfection and the wine flowed freely.
What I would have loved to see:
Being in Munich, we were keen as a bean to try some German sausage however we were a little disappointed to find that the hotel didn’t offer any German style dishes either in Room Service or have even by having a German restaurant.
Located on the ground floor is the pool, spa and gym. The gym was a little small for us and lacking in what we are used to (we both train in a body building gym at home and rarely find a hotel that can meet our needs), however it is perfect for travellers who want to do a bit of cardio and light weight training.
We did however enjoy the heated spiral shaped pool which is surprisingly large and wraps around for a little privacy and a large area that bubbles up (sort of like a spa bath). We also tried out the sauna and steam rooms which are fairly large and have plenty of seating/laying room for everyone. The sauna was warm but not really hot, it was like walking out on a 40-degree day in Australia.
Around the hotel
As mentioned above the hotel is right next to the main train station which we thought was awesome as we were able to easily get to and from the airport and we took a few days trips using the national train services leaving from this train station.
The hotel is also a short walk from a lot of the tourist attractions in Munich such as Karlsplatz, Marienplatz, Hofbräuhaus München and Munich Residenz, just to name a few.
We really did enjoy our stay at Sofitel Munich Bayerpost, our room was very comfortable and felt very homey and it was lovely to have a bath after weeks of travelling and only being able to shower.
The staff at the hotel were super friendly and all the facilities at the hotel were well maintained.
