“Lovely hotel in a central location”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

We spent a long weekend here in The Amber Hotel, Krakow and we were very pleased with the quality of the rooms, the cleanliness and the helpfulness of the reception staff. The latter provide free maps, show where places of interest are, book taxis and arrange trips to Auschwitz and the salt mines.
The breakfast was an extensive buffet of sweet and savoury food and packed lunches were provided for us when we had our day trip out.
Krakow is a lively and buzzing city with loads of bars and restaurants. The main square is huge and the cloth market within was a shopper's delight.
Will definitely return.

Just back from 7 nights in the marvellous city of Krakow. The stay was made even better by the quality of this Hotel and the friendlyness and efficiency of the staff. We were made to feel very much at home. The breakfast was excellent and varied from day to day with a choice of at least 3 hot items and a large varity of cold items from the buffet which was topped up at regular intervals rather than waiting for items to be finished.The Hotel was spotless and the beds very comfortable. Ther was also a small gym with 3 brand new items of equipment. I wish there were Hotels like this in all cities.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back were larger and I think quieter than the front rooms

Just returned from 4 nights at this lovely hotel. It is only 5 mins walk from the main square so very convenient. The rooms are small but beautifuly appointed, breakfast is usual European fare but very nice. The staff here are some of the nicest I have ever come accross, they are so helpful and friendly, they will organise everything for you from taxi transfers to trips to Auschwitz etc. Special mention for Marta who is so nice. If you intend going to Krakow to get as much beer down your neck as possible please look elsewhere, this hotel does not need your custom

Room Tip: rear facing maybe better

The hotel is located 2 minutes walk from the old town and about 10 minutes walk from the main train and bus station. All receptionist speak English and they are very helpful. The room and the bathroom was big and very clean . Breakfast is good but could be more variety for a 4*. Only one negative thing, we got 2 single blankets for some reason. ..

Stayed at the Amber Design Hotel for my 21st birthday on the weekend of the 8th Feb. The staff were so nice and welcoming, couldn't have asked for more! Forgot to take an adapter, lady at reception let me borrow one for the weekend. They even left a lovely birthday poem on my bed for when I returned to the hotel after our day trip. Food is good, hotel is very clean and modern, great location. Would definitely recommend this hotel and Krakow itself!!

I discovered hotel Amber Design just by coincidence.I stayed in this hotel with friends and we all are absolutely delighted.perfect location -close to The Old Town and Planty.absolutely competent, very kind, helpful and patient people at the reception desk.one on my friend had to stay whole day in the hotel because of healths' problems-the receptionists visited her a few times in the room, we didn't have to pay extra costs even though our stay has just finished.absolutely amazing in present time.very clean rooms and hotel and wonderful, light aroma of something in the air what caused that you want to know what's that.
I highly recommend this hotel and it will me my pleasure to stay in this hotel during my next visit in Krakow.thank you for making my stay in Krakow so relax.

Great location thats a 2 min stroll into the square but far enough away for a quiet night sleep. Very helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms and nice continental breakfast thrown in. Great place to stay for a weekend break and great value for money.
