“Good location, Nice budget hotel”
Reviewed 4 June 2011

I stayed one night at a single room.
The room is small and little old. Especially a bathroom is small.
However, the hotel is located just next of the main station of Munich. it is very convenient for you business and sightseeing. Nice breakfast and wireless LAN are also available. Staffs are kind and friendly. So, this hotel is a valued budget hotel.

I had never been to Munich before so I had no idea what the Amba would be like. However, I was impressed. Fantastically located outside the train station (Hauptbahnhof) the hotel was perfectly situated for our trip.
It was a reasonably sized room (maybe a touch too small) with comfy beds and lots of luggage space, also having a very nice bathroom. There were a few minor errors (e.g. small hole in curtain) but nothing substantial. The room was cleaned efficiently and with friendly service.
Breakfast was fantastic with nice food and good service again. The service on the main desk was also very satisfactory, with a friendly atmosphere and staff.
This was a very good hotel and I will definitely consder staying here in future!

This hotel is really good value for money. I booked with Expedia and it cost £63 per night, which included a good breakfast.

- LOCATION - This hotel is situated right opposite the entrance/exit to the main train station, which also houses the S-Bahn and U-Bahn. If you arrive at the main station, follow the signs for Arnulfstrasse, and this will bring you out more or less opposite the hotel. Its about a 15-20 minute stroll to the Marienplatz. Or two stops away on the S Bahn which takes about 4 minutes.

- PUBLIC TRANSPORT - Arriving at the airport, we purchased the City Tourist Card for 51.50 euros (this is called the Partner card and includes up to 5 people on one ticket). The card gives you 3 days unlimited travel on the trains, buses, U bahns and trams. It really is value for money if you plan on using public transport, which in Munich is typically German , i.e fast, efficient and clean. Whats more, it also gives you discounts on numerous museums in the city.
A word of note - when we arrived at the main station by S Bahn, it was fairly late (9.30pm). We did note some rather unsavoury people hanging around the station area. I would not recommend using the U Bahn/S Bahn at night if you are on your own. However, at all other times of the day, we felt very safe. Just be careful and use your common sense if travelling at night time.

HOTEL ROOMS - We had a standard room. It is small, and I found it odd walking from the corridor straight into the bathroom (the toilet and shower are seperate though). However, the room was clean and kept tidy by the maids. Overall, it did exactly what it served to do. And the room overlooked the side/rear so it was very quiet. No need for earplugs!

BREAKFAST - Plentiful and delicious! It was typical continental breakfast which was lovely. The breakfast room was delightfully airy and roomy. My only slight critisism would be that there was not enough fruit but I think this was because we took our breakfast late in the morning, so the fruit had been eaten by then!

RESTAURANTS - We ate at Vi Vadi which is located at Marsstrasse (turn right out of the hotel, then right again and walk past Aldi supermarket. Then right at the next intersection and you will be on Marsstrasse. This is a delightful italien restaurant and it was very cheap.
We also tried Augustina Restaurant on Neustrasse near to Karlplazt. This is a fantastic bavarian restaurant. Next door is their beerhall where you can have snacks and great beer.
There is also a good bavarian restaurant a few doors down from the hotel, but I cannot recall the name. However, this was also a fabulous restaurant and very reasonably priced.

Overall, I was very impressed with this hotel. Munich is a wonderful city and I had a fantastic break.

Stayed for an entire week at Hotel Amba and had absolutely no problems. Nice multilingual desk staff. Very clean. Fantastic location-Just 50 yards from the Main Train Station (Hauptbanhof). Room was your typical European hotel room which is smaller than the average American hotel room. Is within walking distance of a large number of restaurants and attractions. The internet is through Swisscom and costs 10 euros/24 hrs or 6 euros for 1 hour. However it was very fast and reliable, no problems. No AC but it was not an issue since it was spring. Will definitely stay here again when I travel to Munich.

We enjoyed our 3 nights stay at Hotel Amba. The location was perfect, directly in front of the main train station in Munich (Hauptbahnhof). The staffs were all friendly and helpful and all spoke English. The breakfast was excellent with good variety of hams and cheeses, fresh breads and juices, fresh fruits and any kind of coffee you may want. The breakfast room was bright and clean with sufficient space for everyone. Our room was ok for the 3 of us. The water pressure and temperature was very good. There was also an available garage in the hotel. Overall, we will stay here again.

We were booked into the Amba as part of a package. The hotel was kept very clean. For this standard of hotel the room was good, comfortably furnished with a large bathroom all of which, again, was kept exceptionally clean throughout our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts (the only meal provided) were really excellent, well beyond what we had expected with a first class selection and the food constantly being replaced, as it was used.

The location was a short walk to the main shopping area and the departure point for the City trips and the airport bus. It is opposite the Main Railway station which provided good access to the rest of Germany but was not undly noisy.

The only criticism which we had of the hotel was that they did not have any air conditioning it was therefore necessary to open the windows for ventilation. This lead to some noise at night as did the central staircase which was near our room.

We will deffinitely stay there again when in Munich.

Nice hotel, welcoming staff, modern bathroom, but spoilt by guests arriving or returning late at night and making one hell of a noise on the first floor, which the staff in reception must have heard but did nothing. Then noise again from 6.15 am. I will not bwe going back!
