“Appearances can be deceiving...new rooms and amazing breakfast!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The hotel is situated right at the main station in Munich and doesn't look that special from the outside and also the lobby looks more like a hostel than a hotel.
BUT even though our room was pretty small, it looked new and was clean! Still we didn't expect too much when we went to breakfast but were greatly surprised ! They had literally everything you can which for ! Sparkingling wine , pancakes, all kinds of bread, muesli, Bavarian "Weißwurst" and a coffee machine where you could make your own cappuccino or latte macciatto !
Staff was really nice as well ! When the pencakes were empty, the lady made us new fresh pancakes even though breakfast time was almost over !
Parking costs 10 € and they have their own car park in the back of the hotel.

If you are looking for convenience in Munich, then you should probably consider staying at the Hotel Amba in downtown Munich. The hotel is clean, the staff is wonderful, friendly, and very accommodating. The main train station in Munich is directly across the street from the hotel, so everything is very convenient and easily reachable with the train station being so close. The fact that you can take the regional train from the Munich airport to the main train station is a definite plus. Traveling with a group of students, the convenience of the hotel made it easy for the teachers and the students. A great treat for our group was the delicious buffet breakfast that was served each morning. Our students loved and never complained once (imagine that with a group of teenagers) about the hotel, the train and the breakfasts. Check out the Hotel Amba if you are heading to Munich. We think that you will enjoy it as much as we did.

We watched a hotel made video before making a reservation. We do not feel that the video accurately represented the hotel (putting it in a much better light).

That being said, it wasn't a terrible four night stay. The beds were not very comfortable and the room small. The bathroom was big and very clean, but the tub/shower was a little hard to climb into/out of, be careful.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the daily breakfast very good with a variety of foods. Good location to access transportation of all types.

Before going to Munich early June this year I had looked up possible places to stay at. I was looking for accommodation near to the main station and a number of hotels came up on the different sites.

I decided to go with Hotel Amba and got a fast reply confirming my enquiry for accommodation. I was traveling with my wife, we took the train from Nuremberg and arrived at Munich HBF around noon time.

It was good to find that the Hotel Amba was a short walk from the station and not a problem to reach with the heavy luggage we had.

Our check in was fast with an efficient and friendly reception staff who were always willing to guide us and answer all our questions.

The room allotted was on the 6th floor, we found it to be quite spacious and very clean having all the amenities normally expected in a hotel room. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom quite large. The room also had a large window which looked out into the road below.

The highlight of the Hotel Amba was the breakfast, even though it was at an extra cost of Euro 9.00 per person it was well worth the money spent and quite lavish in all respects considering the general star value of the hotel.

It is easy to get to the old town which is a pleasant walk of about half an hour. You will also find all the major hyper stores of Germany including Aldi, Rossman etc very close to the Hotel and this makes it all the more convenient for travelers.

Overall our stay at the Hotel Amba was a pleasant experience and we would definitely stay there again when visiting Munich next.

There was some sort of holiday in Germany at the time we stayed, so hotel prices had sky-rocketed! The price we booked hotel Amba was way more than what they would have charged on other dates. But, we were grateful to just have a clean bed to rest our heads in Munich!

Hotel Amba was ideally located within close walking distance to the place where all the bus tours stop and end. Located right next to the train station, you could not go wrong with the location of Hotel Amba.

We found that the sheets and pillow cases were clean. And the bathroom was also clean. Sadly, the room itself did not look clean. It was dust-free but quite old. The carpet felt dirty. Maybe, the place needs a little renovation to be of better service, or be more presentable to guests.

The breakfast buffet also needed a little more variety. The breakfast room was nice bright and sunny. But, you would be better off picking up something across the street in the Train Station, for better value.

I have been through hundreds of rail stations, Munich's is one of my favorites.
Hotel is about a 2-3 minute walk. Very close to the station's large bike rental.
Front desk. Dry accommodating. All staff speak English well, and can give great directions. You can store your bags free, nice free restroom in lobby.
We were allowed early check in after an overnight train arrival. Rooms and bathrooms large. Showers only. No AC, but they will loan you a fan if it's hot.
Lift somewhat tiny. No ice, but they send you to restaurant next door for some (they claimed to be all out). Got great directions to a laundromat (waschsalon ) about 3 blocks away. Some rooms face the station if you like train watching. There was a noisy beer garden in the alley below that disrupted sleep, but hotel can't help that. Great access on foot to restaurants, trams, u Bahn, S Bahn about 1 block away. Last trip we stayed at the Maratim hotel which had a bit more luxury, but was farther from station.

This is a good.basic hotel with very helpful staff and great access.

We skipped the breakfast, about 9 euro each, but took advantage of a full grocery store about 1.5 blocks west.

Would stay here again.
