This hotel is sexy, cheeky, bold, innovative, cosmopolitan, unique, charismatic, a little crazy, and locally connected...


First as always some geography, because we all want an to make sure every exact location of our accommodation. Don’t we? The 25hours Hotel the Royal Bavarian is located within the former Main Post Office and Royal Central Telegraph Station from 1869.

But where exactly is that?

As far as convenience for transport is concerned, 25hours could hardly be better: located at Munich’s main station (Bahnhofplatz). If you think it’s another regular hotel, but you’ll be surprise how the whole ambiance will transport you into a different dimension.

Similar to other hotels that carries the same name, the 25Hours Royal Bavarian Munich is another themed boutique hotel that exhibits a unique style, design and mood yet with the same youthful and quirky hospitality.

It’s unique style is apparent from the moment you enter the entrance. The lobby’s upscale neighborhood spot the Boilerman Bar is clad with dark wood, parquet floors, and stylish armchairs. The property’s character take a nod to industrial design. This means plenty of exposed walls and brickwork in the public areas, and an old-fashioned glass and metal lift in the middle of the central staircase.

Interesting touches also include functioning old-style typewriters in the lobby, fake hunting trophies (including deer replete with antlers) and a talking-point in the form of a chair topped with a herd of soft swans for comfortable sitting.

Each details are well thought of to bring out the modern indie vibe. I just love the floors, wall to curtain patter they use that reminds me of Neo-Rennaissance style.

The bar is also home to a library that boasts an extensive vinyl record collection. It’s cozy in an classy indie way. The faded vintage rugs gave a different feel on the interior- it’s just chic in total!


Spread across four floors, the hotel’s 165 guestrooms are appointed with the brand’s signature amenities and come in five configurations, including Servants’ Quarters, Stately Rooms, Royal Chambers, and two luxurious suites.

The rooms continue the industrial design style, though there are features to take the edge off the rawness of some of the public areas. Beds are large and comfortable, with quirky features such as bed legs appearing to be little more than a pile of books. Pine woods cover walls, while rustic wooden mirrors and industrial-looking metal lamps accentuate the indie feel.

Like most 25Hours Hotel they also got Freitag Bags that a guest can freely use during the stay. Such a perfect touch for a stay…

Another feature is guests can stream music from handheld devices to a Boom speaker and there are several USB sockets for recharging.

There’s a separate toilet and shower, the main washing facilities are a marble surface with stand-alone metal bowl for the sink. The monochromatic bathroom is just a perfect contrast against the well detailed room. It is fully equipped with everything a traveler needs.


The restaurant/breakfast area has something of a canteen feel, though it actually works pretty well – it has a distinctly more formal atmosphere during dinner than breakfast.

The Neni restaurant is a partner of Neni in Vienna, and it is inspired by cooking in Israel, though with wider international influences. Dishes range from Hummus with pitta, frikeh salad and falafel to rib-eye steaks, Korean fried chicken salad and glazed salmon filet with date syrup-mirin-sake and Japanese rice. But take note; during dinner time they have a strict policy for reservation.

The Boilerman Bar is dark and moody, and during evenings it is for socialising – laptops and tablets are forbidden after 5pm. The hotel has a rather uninspiring tiny burger bar a few doors away.
