Reviewed 11 August 2014

This hotel deserves all the praise it gets. Quiet side street only 10 minutes from main square. Plenty of good resaurants in walking distance. Staff lovely and very helpful and speak excellent English. Hotel decorated to a very high standard and everything in the room clean and worked as it should. We were very glad to accept their offer of arranging a taxi to meet us at the airport which at the moment is being rebuilt and is chaotic. We also took advantage of trips they organised for us to Auschwitz and the salt mine. The trams are not that difficult to work out and even better when we were told that over-70s travel free. In fact Krakow is not a very expensive town at all.

Room Tip: We had asked for a quiet room and it was but I doubt that any room would be noisy.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for four days. The staff were extremely helpful and spoke good English. The Hotel is centrally placed but quiet. Typical Continental breakfast buffet which was generous and varied including hot food. The room was comfortable and very clean and equipped with coffee/tea making facilities. There was a welcome small carafe of liqueur.

This hotel is a very short walk from the market square and attractions. All facilities worked well and were well maintained. Breakfast was continental and the staff were happy to freshly cook eggs as you wanted them. This is a great base for a short stay city holiday. On the down side there is little in the hotel by way of entertainments and the bar is a glass of wine or beer or a coffee, so very limited.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a balcony but it is over the road. Rear rooms are larger but no outside spac...

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Amber. Great staff, and great location. Spotlessly clean and a really good breakfast. Hot eggs and sausages and loads of cold meat fruit cereals etc...the Hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the main square in Krakow and close to loads of restaurants and bars. It is situated in a quiet street with no noise whatsoever. The helpful desk staff arranged taxis and trips, and were extremely helpful throughout our stay. Nice quiet courtyard garden, with a bar available. Would recommend for a stay in central Krakow. Nice touch was the cherry vodka in the room.

Room Tip: We had room 212. Large room with separate lounge area, possible a family room. We upgraded for this...

Myself, the wife and 3 other couples stayed here last weekend and it was a great choice.
Apart from being very reasonably priced, with breakfast included, it was clean, the rooms were big and very well appointed and offered a great nights sleep.
Big bathroom with excellent shower.
Staff incredibly helpful and we were given two carafes of cherry vodka as a welcome gift.
5 minute walk to Krakow's main square and all the history there.
Please go to Auschwitz-Birkenau to keep the memory and the enormity of what happened there alive for future generations. Also the salt mines are truly awesome.

Room Tip: We had a street facing room and were not bothered by noise so any room front or back would be good.
