  • Family with children

    The location was very convienient. The train station is right across the street and the subway (both the restaurant and the public transportation!) is just a few doors down.

    If you don't like street noise, you may want to ask for a room at the back.

    the location is very cool.

    The first day I stayed I saw something terrible and I thought It might be the defect of the toilet bowl then I tried to overlook but on the second day after you cleaned the room that thing disappeared. It means you havent clean the properly.

    1. The location is really ideal, close to the central station of Munich. 2. The room is relatively comfortable and clean.3. The reception is warm-hearted and helpful. 4. Very good breakfast.

    The room is small.

    The only good thing about this "hotel" (which is, in fact, rather a youth hostel) is the location: it's close to the train station (S Ostendstraße) and quiet.

    Do NOT stay here if you are a non-smoker. Apparently they use all rooms both ways, so your room will smell like smoke and so will your clothes when you leave. Also, there are ashtrays all over the corridors. The rooms are ugly and the furniture cheap. There is only one hair-dryer for the whole hotel at the reception, so if you need one make sure to bring your own. If you pay more than 50 Euro per room and night you will feel bad about it.

    The hotel was perfectly located for our trip to OBERAMMAGAU to see the Passion Play and its location, directly opposite to the railway station could not have been more convenient

  • Older travelers

    It is comfortable in an unosyentatious way offering plenty of space and enough shelving and wardrobe space. The breakfast is good. The location-close to the main railway station is excellent.

    Although we were on the fourth floor (room 414) we did hear some loud voices outside late at night which woke us up.

    Excellent location;close to Hauptbahnhof and near city centre,that´s great if you come by plane and want to visit Munich.We got a very quiet triple room,not facing the street, the beds were very comfortable and the room was clean. The staff was friendly and breakfast was good too ( pity they didn´t have more varieties of bread and some croissants ) and that would be perfect.

    They should have more tv channels,since the majority of them were in German. We didn´t like the smell of the towels,we think it´s due to the product they use to wash them, it was a smell of fish.

    The reception desk staff is professional and friendly. The breakfast service and selection is excellent. The variety and choice was exceptional for a three star hotel. The entire hotel is very clean and relatively quiet. Previous reviews had mentioned no free internet service but this has been changed as has the addition of hot eggs at breakfast. It is nice to feel that hotels are looking at these reviews. I still would follow the advice of other guests and ask for a room off the front of the hotel, especially in the summer when the window needs to be open to allow fresh air in.

    My room was on the 4th floor, but on the front. The noise from the street and the train station went on all night. It was difficult-- actually impossible to get a good night's sleep. Also the room layout for a single feels cramped. The bathroom toilet/shower stall design does not leave any room. If you are at all overweight you will not fit on the toilet space as the shower stall is in your way.

    The staff at Hotel Amba is really amazing! All staff members are friendly, helpful and make you feel at home. The hotel is also in a great location. It is right next to Central Station, which allows you get it anywhere very easily. I was traveling with my teen children and they loved the central, safe location. I definitely recommend it.

    Localization, near the Main Train-station. Breakfast was also ok.

    The room was facing the main street – too noisy, you can ear the tramway and the cars. The windows could be of better quality in terms of soundproof. No free Internet – today a 3 stars hotel without free Wi-Fi seems out of age.

    The location was perfect for us, right near the train station. The beds were comfortable and the seating areas downstairs are convenient and give guests a pleasant place to relax. Breakfast was super, really top notch. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I also liked that the lovely Augustiner beer garden was a five-minute walk away.

    In warm weather, the windows must be open, and we didn't sleep very well due to the noise coming from the bars nearby. We even had earplugs, and it was tough. Also, and this is more of a maintenance issue, the shower drain was very slow, and the shower head needed treatment for the calcium deposits as the spray came out at strange varying angles. It's such a nice place and these problems are easy to fix if taken care of now.

    Hotel is a good base to stay at prior to a flight from the airport as it is close to the S train. Good breakfast and wonderful and helpful staff.

    location to the hauptbahnhof. Lobby was also great

    carpets could do with a better cleaning in the rooms or replaced.
