Last weekend Hanna and I were in Munich, where we stayed at BOLD Hotel Munich Giesing. Such a stylish place! I wonder who they hired to decorate the rooms, because that person is most welcome to come by my flat in Dubai and work some magic.
On their website, BOLD states that they’re a little bit New York, a little bit Berlin, but still Munich, though I would like to add, that to me BOLD also had a very Scandinavian feel. Think wooden floors, not too much clutter and light, airy spaces. As a matter of fact, our room was so spacious, it felt more like an apartment. We also had our own rooftop terrace, so we could sit outside in the afternoon sun, enjoying each our bottle of cold German craft beer.
What I loved about BOLD Hotel München Giesing
Unless I’m on a resort vacation, which doesn’t happen very often because I’m not really a resort person, I only spend a minimum of time at the hotel. All I ask for is a clean bed, a shower with sufficient water pressure, and high speed wi-fi, but I do get excited about nice details such as wooden floors, blackout curtains and Nespresso machines, all of which was to be found in our room at BOLD Hotel.
I also liked the informal but friendly attitude of all staff members we were in touch with. The lobby doubles as a bar/cafe counter, and in one corner, we even found a foosball table. You could also sit down and relax in the comfy looking lobby chairs and flip through one of the design magazines hanging on the wall.
Who should stay at BOLD Hotel München Giesing?
Many of the other guests staying at the hotel seemed to be on a road trip, and for that kind of stay, BOLD Hotel München Giesing is perfect, as there’s parking space available, and you can go on daytrips outside the city. Though if you don’t have a car, the hotel’s location is a bit off and the neighborhood isn’t the most charming.
The city center and Altstadt is 4km away, which is a bit too long for walking, but you can rent a bicycle from the hotel for 15EUR/day, which makes it easier to get around. Furthermore, Giesing S-Bahn/U-Bahn station is a 10-minutes-walk away, from where you can take the trains to the city center. Expect to spend an average of 30 minutes to get to Altstadt from the hotel, including the walk to the station, waiting for the train to arrive and the train ride itself. It worked fine for us, and I think the hotel is a nice place to stay for a couple of days. Though if you’re primarily looking to explore the central parts of Munich, maybe the sister hotel Bold Munich Center, is a better option for you.
