The best thing about this hotel is that it is close to the train station. Of course, that also means that it is pretty noisy. We could hear both street and train announcement noise from our room. This was probably the tiniest hotel room I have every stayed in. The carpet was so old, worn and dirty looking that I... More

Good things: Great if you need or want to be located by the main train station where you can get on the main S Bahn or the U Bahn underground. Only 7-8 minutes walk to Karlsplatz. Room clean and was as you would expect for this level of hotel. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that - there is... More

Probably the most minimally equipped hotel I've been in in Europe. No microwave, no kettle, tiny shower, acoustics are horrible in the passageways (sounds like every noise is in the room with you), wifi in the room is nearly non-existent and just about the time you get it, it kicks you off. As far as the bed and mattress goes,... More

I have recently stayed for two nights at the Amba hotel, and the reason I have picked it up was the close location to the main train station. I must say that it proved a bad choice for me. The room I have booked was a single-bed and had a old and dusty smell that met me from the entrance... More

Stayed 4 nights in the hotel in quadruple room. The room (412) is clean and comfortable but not much view. This was not an issue to us as we requested a quiet room not facing the train station. From Munich main train station it is only about 5 minutes walk. There is a sign to Arnulfstrasse so it is very... More

This is a good hotel in a convenient location for travellers and anyone touring the sites of Munich. It's clean, comfortable and the staff is helpful. Just ask for a room facing the back, away from the stairwell. Spend the 9 Euro on the breakfast because it's excellent and well worth it.

I stayed there for 11 nights during July 2014. For the price I guess you can't complain too much. Pro: Excellent location for travel. You look out over the station. Just hop across the street and you are in the Hauptbahnhoff, of half a street to catch a tram. 5 minute's walk to Karlsplatz. Clean. Sheets and towels changed every... More

5 friends had a very good stay. The Hotel has a very good breakfast. The location opposite of the railwaystaion, makes this hotel a very good choice for sightseeing a very short walk to the old town and shopping center makes it a good choice for shopping as well. Small rooms, but very friendly and helpfull people at the Hotel.
