Despite being on the scene for over a decade, Hyatt’s Andaz brand continues to wow with its uncomplicated ‘luxury lifestyle’ formula. Case in point, the group’s newest addition: the Andaz Munich Schwabinger Tor, an all-singing property in the heart of the Bavarian capital that does not deviate from Andaz’s tried and tested concept, dutifully checking boxes for extensive amenities, style and unbeatable location.
Against the backdrop of the city’s Schwabing district, the hotel is a distinctly Bavarian-inspired experience. In a collective nod to Munich style, defining features like stone and herringbone oak floors, luminous diamond patterned ceilings, copper accents and leather sofas come together for a mood that is contemporary, easy and noticeably light. Welcomed by a lobby video installation by Yves Petzner, guests have a choice of 277 accommodations marked by panoramic vistas and small touches — like the black steel frames that snake around floors and ceilings, delineating living and sleeping areas — that have a big impact.
Beyond the guestrooms, the hotel does not lack for onsite amenities. A gym and spa, complete with swimming pool and a deck with views as far as the Alps, is an obvious spot in which to shed any pounds gained at Café M, an all-day deli-café, or Bicicletta a coffee bar serving brews with a side of rentable Andaz bicycles. Closing this maze of indulgence is The Lonely Broccoli, a nose-to-tail restaurant serving chef André Schmidt’s charcoal-grilled and slow-roasted marinated meats amongst a central open-plan kitchen, contemporary chandeliers and solid wood booths. Precede dinner here with drinks at M’Uniqo, the city’s highest bar and roof-top terrace where cicchetti is offered alongside an impressive range of rare vermouths and aperitivos.
