Due to its small size, felt more like an upmarket guest house than a hotel. Good rooms, completely modernised inside, very helpful staff and certainly very clean. Breakfast was a bit of a scrum as we hit the peak hour, but had a good range of options including breads and small scoops of cottage cheese and egg mayonnaise. Slightly strange choice of very dark leather furniture in our room made it feel more gloomy than it was. About 200m from the action, so very handy for everything. Good, not super-brilliant, value for money.

Stayed here last week and it was brilliant. All the staff were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Organised our trips with no hassle. We needed to use the lifts for salt mine visit and they sorted everything for us. The rooms were great, clean and the beds were so comfortable. Little extras around the hotel. Fresh fruit and biscuits free to help yourself and a decanter with local polish vodka in room. Would definitely recommend this hotel and want to say thank you to all the staff for being so friendly and helpful.

Stayed in the Amber Hotel last week when I visited Krakow. Lovely hotel and great first impressions. The reception staff were helpful, giving us a map of how to get to the market square and also some other places of interest. Our room was lovely and had vodka on arrival from the hotel! Breakfast was great in the morning and also booked our taxi for going to the airport. If I ever come back to Krakow (which I will be) I would stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Try to avoid Main road facing rooms as they are little bit noisy despite double glazed windows. Rest...

Really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations for restaurants and the trips we booked through the hotel were very organised. If there was one slight criticism it was the bar, nobody seemed to use it possibly because it was just set out as the breakfast area

I spent 3 nights in this lovely boutique hotel Iast week. I was booked on a whimish "Shirley Valentine" moment, so despite initial bravado as a solo female traveller, I was slightly uneasy. Well following my stay, I think I need to go back urgently.... still baffled by how the hotel applied the whitest white bed linen and the cleanest bathroom in my history. I need cleaning lessons!
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay fantastic location, lovely breakfast and staff who spoke better English than most of my home town Barnsley.
