    Economy room was pretty small.

    Very good

    If you want a hotel by the train station, the location is great- just across the street from one of the train station exits. The buffet breakfast was very good. This was my first trip to Europe; I had heard that the hotel rooms are small and often not air-conditioned, which was true, but it was perfectly suitable for a one night stay. The staff was very pleasant.

    Exceptional

    The hotel is conveniently situated close to the station and shops. The ooms are clean and confortable the staff are helpful. I think the breakfast room is very nice bright and cheerful and the choice of food is very good, The staff there were also very efficient.I have stayed here before a few times and would definitley stay again whenever I visit Munich.I have stayed in two other hotels nearby but prefer hotel Amba. I would recommend it to anyone who is coming for a short trip or overnight in munich..

    Fabulous

    We have appriciated its wonderful location. The hotel is just opposite the main railway station and near to the old city. Underground station is also just near the Hotel. It is very convinient to get to the Hotel from the aiprot by S-bahn.You need not take a taxi. The breakfast is ecxellent. It is at the level of 4-5 stars hotel. It was important for us that we had three normal (full size) beds, not two beds and a sofa.

    The triple room which we stayed at was stated by the Hotel as a superior one. It was not actually superior but was just a normal room. Its best point was that it was really quite (the windows do not look the street).

    Fabulous

    Excellent location with respect to public transportation (Hauptbahnhof) and Oktoberfest fairgrounds

    Loud traffic noise wants you keep your windows shut

    Fabulous

    Convenience for public transport (main line rail, u-bahn, trams, bus to airport etc). Very spacious triple bedroom with enormous bathroom. Friendly and efficient staff. Excellent breakfast buffet.

    Absence of air conditioning. Noise from weekend revellers at nearby sports bar. (High temperatures required bedroom windows to be open).

    Very good

    Know this: the Hotel Amba is very conveniently located just a short walk from the Haupt Bahnhof, the main railway station in Munich. That said, it tended to make our room noisy. Some would object to the neighborhood it is in as well though we enjoyed the varied little food shops nearby. The best part of our stay though, was the extremely good breakfast offered free. The buffet menu was varied with sliced cold meats such as ham, salami, turkey and roast beef. There were a variety of cheeses available. The bread! Delicious seeded whole grain rolls, buns, hard crusted white breads. No sweet breads offered. There were 3 and five minute eggs. Several varieties of juices, wonderful coffee in a pot or from a great machine. Did I mention fresh fruits, too? A good pate each day? Stay here for the convenient location, the friendly staff, the sparkling clean bathrooms, a spartan but clean room and a great breakfast.

    The only negative I can relate is that some would be bothered by the noise at night. Oh, the door keys are hard to work. Spartan rooms.

    Fabulous

    Good location, neat and clean rooms, kind stuff. Breakfast is served from 6.15 every day, that is very good for early check-out.

    Paid internet. Bathroom was soo small. But as it was very clean that is important to me, it is not such a big minus.

    Superb

    Excellent services provided from the hotel counter. Very helpful and friendly attitudes answering travelling questions not necessary related to their responsibilities. Hotel lobby and breakfast room are nicely decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast is good with lots of varieties.

    Bath tub is very high and may not be as convenient especially for elderly.
