Munich’s Market HotelThe almost three-year-old Louis Hotel has cornered the market on location. It’s right on the edge of the lively and picturesque Viktualienmarkt, where residents have been buying their apples and local cheeses and sausages for more than two centuries. And when it comes to a sense of German Gemütlichkeit, the hotel has that sorted as well. Interiors feel like a modern alpine villa, with oiled wooden floors, a big fireplace in the lobby and big, fluffy duvets in the 72 chic bedrooms. Viktualienmarkt 6; 011 49 89411 190 8200; www.louis-hotel.com. Rooms start at 195 euros.

Inhabiting a 100-year-old building refurbished by local architects Hild and K and Albert Weinzierl, the Louis Hotel riffs on the Baroque style professed by its namesake, King Ludwig II of Bavaria, while remaining unapologetically modern. Stucco windows, walnut bed frames, and French balconies lend the rooms old-school class, but the interiors are surprisingly chic. The fine Italian and German fabrics and polished oak and pine floors are matched to European design touches such as handmade furnishings, designer carpets, and pull-out closets influenced by suitcase designs. In the bathrooms you’ll find Paris-Métro tiles. The hotel also offers a gym and sauna, a solid Japanese restaurant, and a rooftop terrace with splendid views of the city’s landmarks, including historic St. Peter's Church.
