An average hotel, with good proximity to the Munich HBF main train station (opposite) and metro (There is a metro exit to the main road). Rooms were clean and small, and toilets were smaller, especially the shower. Overall recommend this hotel if you're a budget conscious traveller or those who wants to stay near the train station with a reasonable...

I stayed for 2 nights on this hotel and noticed my body was itchy and the I had spots in my back. This is the first time it happened to me as my skin is not as sensitive as others. I did not see an actual bug so it could be the detergent that they use to wash the linens....

Budget hotel situated next to Hauptbahnhof Central train station which connects to U-bahn, S-bahn and trams (there's a tram station next to hotel). Within walking distance to Marienplatz and the Old Town. Also eating places are nearby as well underground. Nothing to boast about hotel. Basic amenities such as bed, TV, towels, soap, tissue paper but lack heating in the...

Worth noting that parking is an extra €15 as I don't remember seeing anything on the website. Customer service is average. Don't expect a smile. Our room was really clean and lovely, but unfortunately the walls were so thin that we kept getting woken up by our neighbours. The shower changed temperature every few seconds too. Location was quite central...

Upon arriving at this hotel from Vienna and seeing its shabby and uninviting reception area, our first reaction was to forgo the down payment we made already for our stay and opt for another place. The lady in charge however tried to persuade us to stay as it was only for one night and insisted that we see at least...

Stayed for three nights and found it to be very pleasant. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The hotel has a good standard of cleanliness and was cleaned daily, and it was airy and comfortable. It is very reasonable in price and is superbly located near the central station. The Marienplatz is just a short walk away, so for...

All this hotel has got going for it is location. The rooms are very odd in layout. Tiny, tiny bathroom and even smaller lift. One person and a bag at a time.... And hope it's a small bag. WiFi kept dropping out. If it's a quick transit overlay, do it, else find a different place to stay.

We booked a three person room as we were coming back to Munich as a transit stop. There was three of us the first night and the room was a tad small but it was clean and what we needed. Perfect location as one of our travellers departed for the airport the first morning on the train. The room was...

We like this hotel because its exactly opposite of the Munich Central Station. Its not that big but still enough for the 3 of us. And it was nice that they really are cleaning everyday. Wifi isnt working really great but still manageable.

We were in Munich for one day between flights. We picked Hotel Amba since it was conveniently located right beside the train station. The location is excellent, it was very easy to get there with our bags. While it is convenient to be close to the Hauptbahnhof, the hotel is very noisy, both from the noise of trains coming in...
