Wow such a beautiful place. My husband I stayed for 3 nights. My brother and his partner also came so we chose adjoining rooms. One had a mini kitchen, coffee machine and fridge. The rooms were beautiful and roomy and everything was perfect. There were two options to go and eat breakfast, both places were superb and we enjoyed them both. The stand out thing for me was the friendly staff and their kindness. They kept our luggage in storage all day, they gave us advice and help when asked and also allowed me to get changed and freshened up later in the day before checking out. 5* from us. We absolutely would stay here again.

We stayed at Amber Design Residence for 4 nights from 1 April to 5 April 2024 in 3 Premier Boutique Apartments. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean, fully equipped with everything you need, including a fridge, a safe, and complimentary toiletries and bath robes and slippers. The staff were friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Amber Design Residence is ideally located inside the Old Town District and only a short 5 minute walk to the main square. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, and definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Kraków.

We had a fantastic stay! The place is conveniently located for exploring "Old Town" in Krakow - and it provides easy access to the trains as well. The staff is super friendly, the rooms are sparkling clean, the place provided everything we needed and it is really quiet as well. This is one of those places you make sure to bookmark for when you return!

Myself and my partner stayed in the Amber Design Residence for Easter Weekend. The staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel itself is well kept and neat and we couldn't of asked for a more accommodating stay. The hotel is centrally located by an alleyway just off Old Town and within walking distance to the city centre. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Krakow, especially if it's your first time like it was with us. Thank you, for making our visit to Krakow so enjoyable!

The counter is 24 hours open and the girl in the morning/afternoon is very very nice! When check in, she shared a lot of information of the city. Also, during the Easter, the hotel prepare some activities! Room was clean. The only downside was the noise from other guests. If people talk when they walk in, one in the room could hear very clearly... At the first night, two groups came very late, people laughing and kids crying, thus I was woken twice at midnight by them. The hotel is in a alley in old Town. Tourists is two alleys away, so it is quite at night. Another remind, you need to put the tag outside for cleaning the room and to get the teabag supply.

Beautifully decorated throughout, on a quiet street, close to the Old Town Square. Keypad entry to both hotel and bedroom. Staff so helpful. Organised a taxi from the airport in advance and again back to the airport on departure at 3:30am (120 Zl each way directly to the driver). The rooms have a shower with shampoo, conditioner, hand soap and moisturiser. Shower cap, toothbrush and tissues are a nice touch. There is an iron and board in the cupboard, a mini fridge and tea and coffee facilities. The TV only has the news in English that I saw but I didn’t flick through all the channels. Breakfast is in a nearby cafe, a few minutes walk away, at check in you are given vouchers for breakfast for the duration of your stay. They are delicious!!!! There is a small outside area which would be nice on a summers evening but we didn’t use it. The hotel does have a sauna in the basement but this is extra, they only need an hr notice if you want to use it. In your room there is a trip QR code which takes you to a list of bookable excursions- I used it for 2 trips, Schindlers factory and Getto, and to the Wieliczka Salt mine. Both were excellently organised. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Great location. In the heart of the city but also a quiet place. The staff was really helpful and kind. They gave us many info on the city. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. If I went again I would probably stay in the same place. I recommend it!

David wrote a review Mar 2024
Guildford, United Kingdom7 contributions4 helpful votes
I chose this hotel as it was rated 4th best in krakow. Was unsure where to stay as I had no prior knowledge of the city or location but my gut feeling served me well. It feels far more like a Serviced Apartment / Residence than a traditional hotel, so if you are expecting the normal Hotel reception and experience, this is not quite like that - but that is a good thing not a negative thing. The location is on the periphery of the Old Town, but only a handful of minutes walk to the main square or pretty Castle. We ate in the main sq for our evening meal and there was plentiful choice. Parking is arranged off-site around the corner in a side street. I was a little worried about leaving our Hire Car there as a group of drunk men were in this area & looked like they were set up for the long haul! Luckily the car was unscathed in the morning and once we had paid our 80 zloty (£16) fee we were on our way. Be warned that driving in krakow is disorganised and utterly confusing. There is no logic to road directions and with so many one way streets and no right / left turns, your sat nav will try to take you around in circles. Tram-only routes make life harder and more challenging as you go. We wasted 20/30 minutes just trying to get to the ring road when leaving the hotel area. The hotel rooms were clean, tidy and well presented. No issues with the hotel on this score. And the price was very reasonable by UK pricing standards. There was a bit of noise outside through the night, bin lorries and more drunk singing revellers but this could happen anywhere. Choose this location to visit Auschwitz as it is 1.5 hours to drive there which is easily done on the fast motorway connecting 70% of the journey. In summary, I would recommended this hotel to anyone. A safe choice that will not disappoint.
