Design lovers are sure to be in their element at the Cocoon Stachus hotel. As one of three Munich hotels of the brand, this particular hotel scores points with its vicinity to the old town and major museums, and its playful décor. The light-flooded rooms are designed with a ’70s woodland-theme including retro colours, rounded edges and forest décor. The cosy rooms are somewhat small but equipped with all standard amenities. Prices for a night’s stay start at €80 (USD$93), and breakfast can be booked at an additional charge of €9.90 (USD$11.50), though given that you’ll be surrounded by dozens of cafés and restaurants, you might find that eating out is a better choice.
