“Just what we wanted”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Hotel Amber was an excellent choice for myself and 6 girl friends for our 3 night stay in Krakow. The hotel was very comfortable, clean and staff very friendly and helpful. The location was only 3 minute walk to the main market square and also to where the best restaurants, bars and night clubs were. We got reception to organise our bus and tour of Auschwitz which was very reasonably priced at approx €30.
Room service, breakfast buffet and hotel restaurant were good.
As there was 7 of us, we had a triple room and two twins - one of the twin rooms was next to the triple room and had adjoining door which we got the key to unlock and just left open the whole time which was very handy. Overall was very pleased with the hotel and would recommend to anyone travelling to Krakow.

Hello,
Thank you very much for sharing your opinion about our hotel.
We are very grateful for such kind words,which are motivated to improving the quality of hotel's services
We are very pleased to read your high ratings of cleanliness in rooms and comfortable studio arrangement, adapted especially for your group.
Also thank you for noticed a perfect location, in the heart of Krakow's Old Town.
Your satisfaction for organizing trips to Auschwitz is very important for us.
We care about high quality organized tours (also to Salt Mine, Zakopane etc.), for reasonable money. Yes, I agree to with you, that in Krakow is a lot of good restaurants, famous in Kraków and even in Europe. Nightlife certainly will not allow anyone to be bored :)

Hope you come back to our hotel soon.

Greetings from the magical Krakow!
Regards,
Paulina Żółkowska-Samorek

Cannot fault this hotel at all. Superb value for money, a very warm welome including a complimentary liquer and mineral water in the room, The bathroom was truly spotless. The dining was small, contemporary, and exceptionally clean for a hotel of this size. The hotel's greatest asset however is it's staff. Nothing was too much trouble and every request was carried out with a sunny disposition!!

This very reasonably priced hotel was in an interesting neighborhood only a couple of blocks from the core of the inner city, and a 5 to 10 minute walk from the center of the market. It was extremely convenient for seeing the sights.

Our room was more than large enough, and very clean and well furnished. The staff at the front desk spoke excellent English and were very ready to help with any questions. The breakfast was ample and attractive. We were very happy with this choice, and would definitely want to stay here again on any return visit to Krakow.

We recently spent a snowy weekend in Kracow but had a very warm welcome at the Amber Hotel - not least with friendly staff and a small carafe of Polish cherry vodka and bottles of water in the room - and the bed was so comfortable! The location was perfect for us and our room had a small balcony at the front of the hotel which would have been lovely to sit on had it been warmer. We found Kracow a delightful city and would advise anyone to buy a 2 or 3 day city pass for the buses, trams and most of the museums. It only costs a few pounds, but we jumped off and on trams and found all museums easily. Auschwitz, Birkenhau and the new Schindler Factory museum were all harrowing, but so interesting.
We loved the Amber Hotel and hoped to return later this year.

Me, my boyfriend and 2 uncles stayed here for a long weekend very recently and we couldn't have hoped for a better hotel!

It was great value for money as the standard was superb - 5 minutes walking from the square and short distances to everything else you need and want while visiting Krakow!
Straight away when we arrived we had a lovely lady greet us who was so friendly and welcoming, and the staff continued to be this way throughout our stay.

The breakfast was great, which is a downfall in some hotels - but not here!

It's a quiet hotel, which is what we wanted. So nice to come back and relax after a long day sight seeing. The beds and pillows were out of this world, and the rooms were cleaned daily.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Poland!
Thank you for a lovely stay Hotel Amber!
