This hotel is close to the station, exit from the Mcdonalds exit and turn left, it is 5-6 buildings on the opposite side. The underground station too is close and the old city is about 15 mins walk. The sightseeing buses stop 5 mins walk away. We stayed in a quad room so space was a bit tight but manageable. It was clean and comfortable overall. It can get a bit noisy as you need to keep the windows open on a warm summer night. All rooms don't have a locker, but the reception offers individual lockers if required. We had a comfortable stay overall.

We stayed in a room for 4 with another couple. It was pretty cramped with the 4 beds but it was clean and we made it work. You had to walk through the bathroom (sink area) to get into the room. That was a bit odd. The shower and toilet were in a separate room off of that. The shower was smaller than average. The elevator is old and small but at least there is one! It's close to the main train station which is convenient but loud if you're on the side that faces it. The staff were very friendly--you leave your only room key with the front desk every time you leave the hotel (no key card and you only get one key per room). Our stay could have been better but it also could've been a lot worse.

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.
