“Back again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Our second trip to Munich and our second stay in this hotel, I am glad to say that if you want a good budget hotel near the centre of the city with a very good breakfast the Hotel Amba is the place to stay,
If we went back to Munich for a break we would stay here again .

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel are the quieter ones.

A great spot across the road from the main station... Awesome breakfast and a great place for a quick overnight stay if you need to leave from the main station! The staff was especially friendly and helpful - we cannot thank them enough for all their assistance when we had a problem with our train booking! Thank- you

Hotel Amba is a centrally located 3 star hotel next to Munich central station. We stayed here on a recent 2 day visit to Munich and were able to see a lot of city attractions because of the main metro station being within 200 metres. The main train station is right opposite the hotel which is a plus if you are moving around other European cities.
the breakfast was good and the hotel provided valuable information on the city's attractions. But the cons are the hotel rooms don't have air conditioning and are noisy because of the central location next to the station. We were travelling with a infant and thus were unable to even open windows because of the safety factor. Stay here when you need central and affordable location...

This was a good place to stay. The staff was helpful. There was a little elevator, if you needed it. Also, the breakfast was outstanding. Watch out for the espresso machine, though, as it might burn you if you do it wrong. The beds were comfortable and the place was generally clean. It is near the train station though, which has it's upsides and downsides. Upsides, easy to get everywhere quickly - downside, if you open the windows for air (no AC), you are going to get some loud folks about all night. Generally, quite a nice place though.

Pros:
- Great location. It's close the major train station meaning fast access everywhere, including the airport, and it's also only a ten minute walk from the city centre.
- The staff were very friendly and spoke perfect English
- Decent breakfast buffet.
- Good room service.
- Very good price, definitely got our money's worth

Cons:
- NO Air Conditioning!!! The hotel can of course do nothing about the weather, but it's normal in this area of Germany to have very humid, hot days and nights during the summer. This weather mixed with no AC is frustrating combination - you either open the window to get a tiny reduction in heat/humidity but pay the price in terms of very loud traffic outside, or you close the window and try to sleep in sauna-like conditions.

Summary: For the price, if this place had AC I would give it a 5/5 rating, but without AC 3/5.

Room Tip: You'll need to open the window, so try to get a room away from the road and buy some earplugs.
