AMBASSADOR - BUDGET HOTEL IN CENTRAL LONDON

I have stayed in this hotel for 4 days at the beginning of November, it is a 3 stars budget hotel located in Kensington.Regarding the rooms, my experience was not good, because I booked a single room and I got one of the smallest room I have ever seen in a hotel, the size of the bathroom was OK, considering the size of the room, with a shower stall, enough light to get shave (is not always usual) and hair dryer, but the room was extremely small, there was a tea facility, TV (as most of the hotels now it is a PC monitor) and a very small table with a lamp, in case you need to work at the room and dark courtains to protect you from the daylightBreakfast was basic, sausages and beans (part of a typical English breakfast) , no ham, one type of cheese, scrambled eggs and 2 – 3 different type of bread (including fresh baked croissants), 2 machines for coffee, chocolate, tea, etc, some yogurts, cornflake and some apples. One thing to take into account, is that there was a warning at the elevator, explaining that in Saturdays and Sundays, use to be long queues between 08:30 – 09:30, I arrived on Saturday, so on Sunday I came down for breakfast about 07:30, but it seems to be that most of the guests had the same idea, so I have to wait about 20 minutes to be seated, the rest of the days of my stay, there was no queue, but I think the space of the restaurant for breakfast is small considering the capacity of the hotel. Upon arrival, the hotel demands a 50 GBP deposit, that they return you back when checking out, as a rule I use to pay this deposit in cash, because for some hotels takes time to refund this amount to your credit card, also you can get an adapter for free (5 GBP deposit).Internet is for free and it worked well during my stay. There is no safe for guests, nor at the rooms neither at the reception, so you have to leave your values at the room, I did have not problems with this, so I think the hotel can be considered safe, but you have to take into account that you must leave your valuable things at the room. The hotel location is one of the best things, it is centrally located, in a nice neighborhood with many hotels and restaurants (the hotel does not have a restaurant), there are also a couple of supermarkets nearby, if you need to buy something, 5 minutes walking from the hotel you have the Earl Court subway station (an intersection of District and Piccadilly lines), who allow you to reach the historical and typical city centre very fast. To travel by London I would really recommend to buy the Oyster Card, you can charge it repeatedly and you can keep it for next trips to London to be used again for you or a friend or relative. There are several Italian restaurants nearby the hotel, I ate twice in Ask Italian (it seems to be a chain), good italian food and nice service, also I also ate at Garfunkel, this is a place to try the classical “fish and chips”.The hotel staff was nice and ready to help, specially efficient and nice, was the young lady (a brunette one), working at the reception the day of my arrival. The hotel’s price was very reasonable for these dates I visited London, considering the location in the city centre and the neighborhood, where the hotel is located, if I would know in advance I would not get the small room I got this time, I would return to this hotel, considering the price and the location.

Don't stay here

Hotel staff are very pleasent. We used Earl's Court tube station which is about a four minute walk away.Rooms very small and bathroom can hardly move in. Shower tiny.Breakfast is very limited hot food not good. Cereal and toast and croissants are ok. The orange juice is awful. Apple juice passable.Would not recommend..

Poor state and shabby

Location = excellent Cleanliness = so so - if you get a room without sewer flies all over then your fineDecorative state = abismal - stains all over the carpets inside the room and the stairs and corridors - all over could do with a lick (or 2) of paint to say the least.Comfort = double bed frame with 2 single mattresses = erm i will let you reading this decide what you think that would be like 😉Food = so so - breakfast is from 8-10, we went down at 8:30ish, no tomatoes left, no mushrooms left and the fresh orange was orange squash. Beans were cold. If you have cereals, fruit or toast then your ok.Yes its just for sleeping in but if you can sleep with bugs all over and on 2 single mattresses then fill your boots, otherwise avoid like the plague,in our opinion

What a Dump

My wife and I stayed here for four nights recently and I have to say that I was pretty disappointed. The location of the hotel is good, about a 5 minute walk to the Gloucester Road subway stop, that is the highlight of staying here. The hotel is old and in need of an update. The lobby is nothing to speak of, and it doubles as the breakfast room for the included breakfast in the mornings. Buffet was "OK". The rooms are tiny, I could barely squeeze into the bathroom to shut the door to use the rest of the room. I have seen larger bathrooms on a cruise ship. The "Queen" room had two single beds that seemed like two roll away cots. There was almost no room to have a suitcase out and no real place to stow one. No in room safe, a 12" TV and worn carpet completed the room. I've stayed in worse places, but this certainly is in the bottom three. Take a pass on this one.
