“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

The Amba is situated to nearly everything important in Munich. A short walk has you at the train station or underground transit system. A brisk walk will have you at the Marienplatz in a few minutes. The hotel itself is clean and the staff very gracious & helpful. We were appalled at the "lift" (room for 1 or 2 people and little more), which means most of our coming-and-going from the 3rd floor was via stairs. Not an easy route if you're hefting bags. Too, the linens were clean, beds quite comfortable. But the pillow & mattress was quite dirty, which is why I discounted my rating.

They provide a nice breakfast for hotel guests.

Would I stay here again? Probably not.

I stayed at the hotel Amba with my partner and another couple, for the Oktoberfest in the thereinweissen. It is a short walk to the festival about five minutes! Don't bother with a taxi, cost 15euro for a very short distance, just followed the crowds of people dressed in leiderhosen!! The breakfast in the hotel is fabulous and fresh!!! The hotel staff are very friendly! There is free wifi available in the lobby all you need to do is get a password from the reception desk! Such good value for money!
Only issue is there was a hostel right behind the hotel meaning there were crowds at night talking loudly outside, but with the windows closed it was ok. And if your planning on getting wasted at the fest noise won't be a problem when you've passed out!

I stayed at the Hotel Amba for three nights for the Oktoberfest. It is prime location for the Oktoberfest and very close to the center of Munich (Glockenspiel, Haufbrauhaus, etc.)
The staff was extremely helpful no matter the time of day or night and the rooms were clean and well serviced during my stay.
I will definitely stay here again on my next trip!!!!!!!

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Amba for two nights, and were well pleased with our selection. The room was medium-sized with a bed that was queen-sized (perhaps too narrow if you’re large). The bathroom was fair-sized, with reasonable lighting.
Pluses for us: location by the train station – if you exit at one of the two exits on the north side of the station there is a pedestrian crossing over the tram tracks directly in front of the hotel. We exited on the north side, and at the exit halfway down the tracks, and although there were steps down, in the rain we had a rather dry exit from the train. Another plus was the geniality of the desk staff: they offered a map, had partner-day tickets for tram/bus system, had a map of that system, and in general were very pleasant and helpful. We were renting a car on departure, and the desk personnel showed us their garage location where we could load the car and not be in the street. We paid $111/night (including a good breakfast), which we felt fair for this location in a large city.

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...
