This was my second business trip to Krakow, and Hotel Amber served its purpose very well in 2012, so it was only natural that I would stay again having been very satisfied on the first trip.
It may not look that exciting from the outside, but once inside the accommodation etc was absolutely fine. It's an easy walk to the market square and Wavel Castle, and generally for getting around the city. The only problem I have had on both occasions is that is has been snowing & icy!!
I have recommended the hotel to colleagues for their weekend trip

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room on the third floor, away from the lift.

We stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The facilities were perfect, the breakfast just right and the staff could not have been more pleaseant and helpful - especially on the first night when their restuarant recommendation turned out to be perfect. Will definitely recommend to others and look forward to coming back soon!

Having returned from a 4 night stay in Krakow last Friday, I can't speak highly enough of the staff at Hotel Amber who were very welcoming and helpful, booking taxis, trips and offering advice when asked. Service was complimented by little touches like displaying the weather forecast & highlighting local events on the notice board and via their daily newsletter, offering use of umbrellas and luggage scales. Our room was really nice, large and spotless. Hotel was excellent value and in a great location and from which we could walk to the market square in less than 5 minutes but Wawel Castle, the Jewish quarter and the shopping area were all also within comfortable walking distance.

I chose the Hotel Amber after reading positive reviews on TripAdvisor and I was not disappointed. The staff were great and really friendly. The hotel is in a great location and is within walking distance of the Main Square. The room was clean and the bathroom was spotless. There was complimentary tea and coffee in the room for the first night and you can have it replenished for a small amount.

There is lots to choose from at breakfast and the Hotel is within walking distance of a number of restaurants. I eat twice at Mamma Mia (http://www.mammamia.net.pl/en/) which is just down the next street. It was very reasonably priced and the staff were really nice.

There is currently some building work going on next door to the hotel but this was not a problem as I was out for the majority of the time during the day.

The only small thing I noticed in the room was a slight dent/dip in one part of the floor which I suspect the Hotel are waiting to have repaired and was certainly not a problem.

I had great fun practicing some Polish and cannot wait to re-visit!

Great value, location and staff. Made our stay really great. Its the little extras that helped like the daily newsletter, weather forecast and sauna. They booked all our trips and had everything we needed.

A very good place to stay for a reasonable price. Well placed with only a short walk (less than 10 minutes) into town. The staff were all charming and helpful. My mother is elderly so they placed us on the first floor near the lift. We also had a large bathroom laid out for those with disabilities, even though we had not asked for this. The hotel was very clean and I enjoyed the sauna a couple of times. The hotel is expanding so there were building works next door but this was not a problem. I am sure it will be an even nicer hotel once finished.
