The hotel was very clean. They had free WIFI which was really good. Their food was reasonable. The location was excellent. It was in the local area. I didn't feel like being a tourist much and could feel the hungarian life!. It's just 10 mins walk to the tram. There are many bars and restaurants you could chill out before heading to bed.
The only thing I didn't like was the staff. There was only one girl who was really nice and also the house keeper. But the others were quite rude actually.

We are pleased to read your review about our hotel. Since your last stay we have installed new plasma-screen televisions in every room and renewed the WIFI connections. Now it is easier to reach faster connection from every room. We are truly sorry to read your unsatisfaction of the manner of the hotel staff. In general we receive very good feedbacks of the helpfulness and friendliness of our staff. It is really unfortunate that you did not have a good experience. Regularly staff meetings are taken place where we discuss the actual problems and train our workers to improve their good manners to our guests. We hope that on your next visit to our hotel we can provide you a more pleasant stay.

I was there with my family in june and Hotel Ambra proved to be what you really need to spend a few days in a nice, quiet, and worthy place.The staff is friendly and helpful, our room was quite big and clean and absolutely silent. The location is strategic, closeby many interesting sites reachable by foot, so I suggest it to anyone.

My mother and I stayed in this hotel from a recommendation in a guidebook.
The location was great, we walked everywhere throughout 4 days of our holiday and had a great time.
The hotel was very clean and they served self-serve tea, coffee and water continually, which was nice. The 'business centre' on the first floor was also really useful with a sitting room and free wifi.
The only slight issue we had was that the rooms and hotel had obviously been re-furbished quite recently, however the towels had not been replaced, so were quite old and tatty.

We were here four nights. We made a resevation for non-smoking-room, because of my health. Still we got a room, what was like an ashtray. We made a complain, but we did not get that right room until next day. So this hotel is not for asthmatics (part of the pillows are fluff pillows)! Also that picture of the room in hotels webpages is misleading; room are not like that -- not renovated. First room was also very noisy, because of the road.

But if you just need a safe place to stay and good location to the metros, Ambra is a fine hotel. Also hotel staff is very polite and breakfast is diverse.

Thank you for your review! We are truly sorry that you had an unconfortable first night. In spite of the size of our facility we have a few non-allergic rooms with non-allergic pillows and sheets, which we are trying to keep to our guests with asthmatic problems. Unfortunately in a high-peak season, when the house is fully booked we have to make some arrangement to provide the best to our guests. Please, consider the effort what we had made to give you the right and more quiet room the following day. We are also pleased to inform you about our new plasma-screen televisions in every room and the renewed WIFI connections. Now it is easier to reach faster connection from every room. We are truly hope that the rest of your stay was satisfied and the good location, the friendliness of our staff and the variety of the breakfast will make you choose our hotel again in the future.

I stayed in the Hotel Ambra a few nights ago - the room was spacious, clean & comfortable; food & drinks exceeded expectations; the personnel at reception were very attentive to any special questions and location of the hotel is fantastic. Last but not least, it is good value for money. I would definitely recommend this hotel property

We spent 10 nights in April at Hotel Ambra and found it an excellent choice. The staff is friendly and very helpful.
Centrally located on the Pest side of the Danube, just 2 blocks from the magnificent Opera House and we could walk to almost every sight.
For visiting the sites on the Buda side, we were close to the Metro and there are numerous bus, tram and trolley lines. We puchased packets of 10 single tickets good on all forms of transport which saved money over the multiple day passes.
Our room was spacious and we had a balcony overlooking an inside courtyard to enjoy early morning coffee after the excellent buffet breakfast, which fortified us for our touring adventures of a marvelous city which is undergoing much updating.
We would definitely choose to stay here on our next visit to Budapest!

Room Tip: Email Hotel Ambra with specific requests.
