The Royal Bavarian by the hip hotel group 25hours is located right next to Munich's main train station, just a few steps away from the old town. The creative chain has been shaking up the hotel scene with great success for almost 20 years now and The Royal Bavarian is the tenth hotel to attract attention with its creative, urban interior.

In the renovated old building of the former "Imperial Post and Telegraph Office", where the hotel is located, I can hardly find the entrance at first. But in the end, the Neni restaurant on the ground floor shows me the way, which - just like at 25hours Bikini Berlin and 25hours Vienna - serves Israeli-inspired cuisine to more than just hotel guests.

The restaurant, initiated by Israeli Haya Molcho, is also the culinary heart of the 25hours Hotel The Royal Bavarian. From breakfast to lunch and dinner, extremely tasty oriental cuisine is served here from early in the morning until late at night in a colorful mix of Bavarian coziness and industrial chic.

Adjacent is an orangery with lush green plants and stylized palm trees, which invites you to work and linger. Behind a wall of colored glass, a kiosk beckons with special little things, unusual books and magazines - curated by the Munich bookshop Lost Weekend.

Past an elephant fountain, a tongue-in-cheek reference to the legendary Hotel Adlon in Berlin, a large steel staircase leads up to the reception and the Boilerman Bar on the first floor. There, "sophisticated highballs" are served in cozy club chairs and a library tempts you to linger.

The Royal Bavarian is peppered with ironic allusions to the royal legacy and the self-image of the Bavarians, which are taken to extremes with carpets, wallpaper and heavy curtains, especially in the reception area. My personal highlight is an armchair made of swans stretching their necks out of white plush.

Right next to it, a historic horse-drawn sleigh serves as a co-working space. There is something to discover everywhere. Even in the 165 rooms in a total of five categories. They have names such as "Servants' Chamber", "Lord's Room" or "Nobleman's Chamber" and are each furnished very differently.

What they all have in common are beds with great mattresses, air conditioning, sustainable cosmetics, TV, minibar and Bluetooth speakers. But there are also many different nice details that are not only well thought out, but often also amusing. For example, my bed is supported by a pile of books at one corner of the foot end and a beer mug in the bathroom holds my toothbrush and toothpaste.

From the charmingly simple ambience of a "servants' chamber" with Swiss stone pine wall paneling and a closet made of airy rabbit lattice to the truly royal "Peacock Suite" with 70 square meters and a view over the hustle and bustle of Munich's city center, everyone will find their favorite room at The Royal Bavarian.

The crowning glory for all guests is the wellness area with a Swiss stone pine sauna and a relaxation zone with balcony on the 4th floor of The Royal Bavarian. Made for all those who want to recharge their batteries after a long day at work or hours of sightseeing before plunging back into the hustle and bustle of the Neni and bar.
