Airport hotels

Should you stay at a hotel  close to Munich International Airport? If you have an early-morning flight, the location is convenient, because it will save you from having to allow time for a 40- to 40-45 minute S-Bahn, bus, or taxi ride from the city center.

Otherwise, we'd recommend staying near the Hauptbahnhof (Munich's central railroad station) and catching the S-Bahn to the airport on your day of departure. That way, you'll have more to do in the evening, and you might save a few euros in the bargain.

Still, if you want to stay close to the terminals, here are two hotels that are located right on the airport grounds:

Kempinski Hotel Airport
This ultramodern luxury hotel at Munich International Airport is a short walk from the terminals and the München Airport Center shopping mall. See our illustrated review.

Novotel München Airport
The 257-room Novotel, which opened in 2010, is geared to middle-class business and family travelers. All rooms are soundproofed, handicap rooms are available, and Wi-Fi is free.
