“Wonderful stay in charming hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

My partner and I recently spent 5 nights in this charming hotel. The staff were very friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the welcome decanter of cherry vodka! We also enjoyed the buffet style breakfasts and the sauna room. The hotel is ideally located close to the old town and the main square and there are many good, cheap restaurants close by. We will definitely be coming back - perhaps for the Christmas markets.

Stayed for 2 nights, very comfortable and clean room. The staff were very helpful and friendly, breakfast was plentiful. The hotel is a just out of the centre of town, an easy 5minute walk into the main square and the receptionist showed us all the points of interest on a map on checkin. Even let us leave our luggage after checkout so we could wander around Krakow without lugging everything around. Fully recommend this hotel, great value for money.

Just a quick review.... very clean, cracking location, huge comfy bed, free decanter of cherry vodka in each room, very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was absolutely fine but not all that memorable. The fitness suite was also more akin to a sauna. These 2 minor niggles largely relate to the practical 'problem' that the hotel has but 17 rooms. Would return. Great city by the by! Had a rare old time.

Room Tip: Better to face the front street.

My wife & I stayed at the Hotel Amber for 3 nights from 24th May & thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We had booked a superior room but due to building work we were put in a standard room. However the hotel gave us robes, slippers, toiletries etc to compensate for this & reduced the room rate. This did not spoil our stay at all, as the room was spotlessly clean and the bed/pillows gave me an excellent nights sleep. It was also a nice touch to have a decanter of cherry vodka in the room. The hotel is less than 10 minutes walk from the main market square, so is close to the old town, which has many attractions. We had no problem walking to the old jewish quarter. The breakfast is very good with a wide selection of dishes (mainly cold). I must also say that all of the staff were excellent, friendly & supplied us with a lot of useful information. A great hotel to stay in & I would thoroughly recommend it. Also the building work was not an inconvenience. We would definitely stay there again as there is still so much to see in Krakow.

Superb location, close to the main square. Rooms ending in 01 and 06 face a courtyard and are exceptionally quiet. Free internet was especially appreciated as was the off-street parking. Buffet breakfast was more substantial than expected with both hot and cold dishes. Front desk staff was very accommodating before and during our stay. Recommend without hesitation!
