Positive Reviews

Great location

The Ambassador places you within walking distance of many of the city’s best-known attractions, so you’ll barely have to bother with taxis to discover the area A recommendation that often crops up is to visit Sennaya Square You’ll find that it’s less than ten minutes from the hotel.

Delicious breakfast

Guests have plenty to say about the breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant, with most describing the cuisine on offer as exceptional It seems that the food is not only tasty and plentiful, but is also served in a room that boasts a panoramic view of the city What a fantastic way to start your morning.

Quality experience

Comments about this being the best hotel a guest has ever stayed in are common The opulent lobby and wide choice of amenities are appreciated while little touches like the fact that the Wi-Fi works also go down well.

Negative Reviews

Staff not as friendly as they could be

While not all guests agree on this, a fair few remark that the staff here aren't as welcoming as they perhaps could be It seems that the staff don’t have exceptional English language skills, so the problem could be due in part to communication difficulties.

Standard breakfast charge

While admittedly delicious, it seems that you’ll pay a flat fee for breakfast here This is fine if you feel like tucking into a veritable feast each morning, but if you just want tea and toast, you’ll probably feel fairly hard done by.

Loud music

Some guests comment how the ninth floor restaurant sometimes plays loud music until late It seems that the restaurant is used for wedding celebrations, so while this may or not be an issue while you stay, you might be better off asking for a room away from the restaurant.
