Definitely the worst hotel I've stayed at. Upon my arrival following nearly 24 hours on planes from Australia, I expected to be greeted with at least a "hi, how can we help you?" but was instead met with blank stares by the staff who seemed to not understand why I was there with my suitcase. I said I was here to check in and they were unsmiling and perfunctory. I asked about the wi fi (which according to the website is free - and even every hostel I have stayed at has had free wi fi) and was told it would be 5 pounds a day. Turns out I could not even access the wi fi from my room and had to stand in the cold stairwell to get a signal.The room was tiny, which I could deal with because I was staying alone. However, there was mould all over the bathroom walls and huge amounts of dust behind the heater, which was pretty disgusting.Later in my trip I stayed at the Ibis hotel in York - a far, far better experience. That hotel is a 2 star in comparison to Ambassador's alleged 3 star, but it was so clean, refurbished, and the staff were helpful and friendly. I also stayed in Sophie's Hostel in Prague which was also superior to this hotel.I would not stay here again nor would I recommend it to anyone else.
I booked this hotel through booking.com and checked in at 1 am, it was a quick check-in,I find it a decent hotel to stay room n amenitiies were good, comfortable bed and spacious toilet, hotel staff is helpful and quick in response, This hotel is located in centeal london pretty close to tube stations such as earls court and gloucester road , major tourist desitnations are easily accessible from this location n are only a few miles away. There are many restaurents, spas, bars close to this hotel within 2-4 minutes walk.What I did not like about this hotel is the Breakfast there were only couple of dishes n if your a vegan or want a halal meat food you would find nothing but only cerials or fruits in their breakfast.
I booked a trip through an agency, and the trip with the better hotels was booked, so I took the one with more basic hotels. I was fine with that--I basically just need a place that's safe to hold my stuff, has a comfortable bed, and where I can get clean. So in that sense, Ambassadors did the job. But the facilities were pretty run down. It almost felt like a hostel (without the shared bathroom). The lift was broken, and I was on the top floor, so that pretty much stunk. You had to pay extra for Internet, and it did not work well at all. The breakfast was fair--to be honest, I skipped it because it wasn't worth the extra trip down and up the stairs. The one good thing was they give you this cell phone to use while you are there, so you can use it while you were out and about and not worry about using up your data or getting charged overage fees. The location was okay--it's about a half mile from the tube.Of the three hotels I stayed in on this trip, this was by far the worst. I would not recommend it.
This is definitely a budget hotel. You check it out online and it all looks very nice. But when you get there it is a different story.The lobby looks like it does in the pictures. So does the dining area. But there it stops. There is an elevator in the lobby for people who have trouble with stairs, but it's not very big.If you want a tiny room you can hardly turn around in, then this is the place for you. Everyone I talked to staying there were amazed at how tiny the rooms were in this hotel. The bathroom is so small there is no way my husband could use it. You almost hit your head sitting down to use the toilet, things are crammed together so tightly. The roomiest area in the bathroom is the shower and it's nothing to brag about.My friend and I shared a room with two twin beds. There was just enough room between the beds to get up and walk down the hall to the door or bathroom. My bed needed a new mattress. It was permanently mashed down on the room side from someone sitting on the edge of it. I had to put towels under that side to keep from rolling out of bed every night. The cover for the heater fell apart while we were there and it still wasn't fixed by the time we left. The room was probably about eight feet wide. If it was ten feet, it was pushing it.These rooms are perfect for someone who doesn't plan on doing anything except sleeping in them. But if you plan on spending any time in your room, you have to sit on the bed to do anything.The rooms were clean and well kept. I don't know if it's an English thing or this hotel, but they had no washcloths for people to use in the bathroom.The dining area was clean and well kept also. The Greeter who checked you in for breakfast was very nice and fun to visit with in the morning. They served the typical English breakfast, buffet style. The people at the front desk were very good and knew their jobs. They misplaced one of my bags before we could check-in, but they finally figured out what they had done with it. At least one of them is multilingual speaking French, Japanese and I can't tell you how many different languages. You can request to keep your extra cash in their safe, but that's all they allow. They won't store your jewelry or anything.It seemed to be a popular place because people were constantly checking in. The room prices probably has a lot to do with that. But you get what you pay for.It is conveniently located to the Earl's Court Tube. It's only a five minute walk away.And the hotel is located in a quiet area with houses.pubs and grocery stores. One thing it has going for it is the neighborhood is very quiet.Overall, it's a nice place, but the rooms are just too small for my taste.I don't know if all London hotels are like this one. I hope not. I would like to go back and visit and my husband is excited at the prospect of checking out London too.
Where to start, we paid upfront and then read the reviews thinking ' it can't be that bad'. It was worse -,the external door frame was all chipped away, the furniture was like old style MFI and all the tops and sides were peeling off. The wardrobe was an open box with a few hangers. No safe to be seen. The bed was old type metal frame 4 bare legs didn't look comfortable at all. There were 2 holes in the wall and I moved the curtains and they were dirty and stained on the window facing side. Was dusty in places and look unkept overall, bathroom had spots of mould around the bath. We didn't stay and just walked out, my wife was offered another ' better , room - if better rooms were available why would they not be used first ?? As I say we left within 10 minutes - pictures are available if you think I'm being over negative.
