If ever a Munich hotel felt like your most stylish friend’s apartment, it’s Cortiina. All of its rooms, and particularly the suites, are impeccably laid out, with parquet flooring, smooth pine furnishings and an array of beautiful fabrics from the soft-toned bed throws to the cosy armchairs. The on-site Grapes Wine Bar is a knockout restaurant in its own right, serving the likes of grilled octopus with salsiccia and salmon with a wild herb salad, as well as smaller bites to enjoy alongside one of the bar’s expertly chosen wines. Grapes also hosts the hotel breakfast, which includes excellent coffee and fresh dishes made using local ingredients. If all that weren’t enough, Cortiina is bang in the middle of the Altstadt, with Marienplatz and the Viktualienmarkt within easy walking distance.
Time Out tip: Like something you had for breakfast? You may be able to take home some of the same – Cortiina gets much of its produce from the Viktualienmarkt.
