The Amba is an excellent hotel. By booking in advance on line at the right time we got a really good price. It is right opposite the station for main line trains, U bahn and S bahn. The hotel facilities are basic but very clean and adequate. It had the feel of a student hostel without the noise and untidiness!The... More

The Hotel Amba was our lowest point in Munich. The pros: close to the train station and close to Augustiner (very big pros), good (overpriced) breakfast. The cons: not exactly clean, not a great value, overpriced breakfast, non-functioning internet, far from the center of town (you must take the S-bahn). If it seems to be your cheapest option and you... More

This hotel is great for anyone wanting to visit Munich and for those travelling from English speaking countries like us from the UK its perfect. Staff are only too happy to help and their ability to speak English (along with most of the other people in Munich) combined with very good knowledge about Munich really help you make the most...

It was just as we needed after a long flight. Clean, and had a good breakfast. The room was small, and so are most of the elevators, but that's the way it is over there. Christine, and Harry (Front desk) were very nice to us. We'd go again. Our dates of travel are wrong. But they don't give you much... More

Stayed here for one night after flying into Munich on the evening of the 30th January. My son and I stayed here as we were looking for accommodation near train station as we were travelling to Budapest the following morning. A somewhat dated foyer but clean snd functional. Staff friendly and chatty on checkin. Given the key for our very... More

VERY VERY close to the train station and next to the main road, which is convenient for travel BUT could hear announcements at the train station throughout the night and the sound of cars honking, etc. Staff probably needs a refresher course in customer service. Room was not ready when we arrived and so we decided to wait and looked... More

Booked on sale and therefore was great value. The entire hotel could use a facelift and the staff need a bit of a refresher course in customer service (nothing was explained at check in -in fact the general attitude was that we were massively putting everyone out by checking in at all-, eg the fact that breakfast was not included...

Hotel Amba is located directly across from Munich's main train terminal and an easy walk to most places of interest. It is an excellent location, but our first view was their outdoor sign and entry and we guessed correctly that Amba could use refurbishment. The lobby is reasonably comfortable but needs to be refreshed. The rooms are small but not... More

This was our third visit to this hotel, stayed for 3 nights and the only downside this time was the noise from the rear of the hotel when construction work in the road outside started promptly at 7am, not the fault of the hotel. once again the breakfast was of its usual high standard with plenty of choice. the location...
