Mandarin Oriental, Munich reopened earlier in October following the most extensive renovation in the hotel’s history and just in time for its 20th anniversary. In keeping with the restoration of its public areas and the introduction of Matsuhisa Munich in 2015, the hotel has now unveiled all new guestrooms and suites.
Hamburg-based design studio cm-Design led the renovation and the hotel also collaborated with renowned brands such as Ligne Roset, Bavarian-based and family-run carpenter Felix Graf and House of Tai Ping, the esteemed manufacturer of textile floor coverings headquartered in Hong Kong. In addition to new tech in every room and suite, the completely redesigned bathrooms in black and white tones incorporate advanced sustainable technologies to minimize energy and water consumption. Guests can enjoy a variety of newly introduced in-room amenities and services, ranging from personalized butlers to locally produced biodegradable coffee capsules for Nespresso machines, a private bar with daily creations by Matsuhisa Munich and a champagne experience served directly from the custom-made trolley every afternoon.
General manager Dominik G. Reiner noted in a press announcement that the hotel is one of the first in Germany to have replaced all single-use plastic items in the rooms and bathrooms with sustainable alternatives.
