Got up super early at like 5.30 so we could be downstairs for the tour lady but missed the tour to tigers and floating market anyway and tour lady wasn't even there! People who worked in the hostel were rubbish, we asked when the tour lady started work (as the day before they'd said she started at 6) but he just said maybe she's on holiday. Bumped into Alastair who had just got back from another night out. He was ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ambassador Hotel Bangkok

    Good value for money


    I had stayed at the Ambassador a few times previously and felt that the advantages far outweighed the disadvantages which I had found when staying there. There are two wings in this hotel, the newest being the Tower wing which I had not experienced before. My wife and I booked a room there for three nights in early September 2005. We arrived at around 10-00 pm and the check-in procedure was completed quickly and efficiently and with smiles all round. We were then taken to our room on the 22nd floor and were pleased and surprised at what we found. The room was large with a comfortable king size bed and the rest of the bedroom furniture was covered in silk and although simple, was also of good quality. The room, like everywhere else in the hotel was spotless. A well stocked mini bar, Coffee and tea making facilities and two hair driers were provided and everything that should have worked did so. We decided to have a nightcap in the English pub on the ground floor before turning in and listened to the resident band playing a mixture of easy listening music.

    Not Very Good


    I consider myself a relaxed person/customer, but of all the hotels i have been in around the world, this is the one hotel that made me angry and a frustrated, A large hotel with 750 rooms and just 3 receptionist, and that just sums up the kind of problems that very easily happen, ( Maybe that's why the receptionist are always rude and unhelpful ).



    This hotel has a nice lobby. The elevator takes longer than climbing the stairs. The hotel reeks of musty smoke. We had a room in the longer part (not the tower) and they refused to move us anywhere else. The room APPEARED clean, smelled horrible. We could have a hairdryer, but only for one hour. It took them 30 minutes to get it to us. I don't think I'd stay here again.

    Great hotel for first landing!


    I was really impressed with what we got for the amazing price we paid for the Ambassador Hotel. I'd recommend this as a great place to stay when you first arrive and are getting over your jet lag. You don't need to go out if you don't want to as there are good bars and restaurants inside. If you do venture out although the hotel is not very central it is so near the Skytrain which can get you to the best parts of Bangkok in minutes.

    I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely go back.

    Great location, needs some help


    We arrived at midnight and expected to be given a king room like we reserved. Not exactly- they gave me and my husband two twin beds! We called and asked to change rooms and there was nothing else available. The next day they did give us a new room, but in general both rooms were dingy (both in the Tower wing). The bathrooms had mildew issues, the electrical scared us both and we resigned ourselves to the fact that we're just spoiled Americans.

    Very Disappointing


    Very disappointing, our expectations were high having read the other reviews, we will definitely not stay here again! Firstly, when we arrived, check-in was inefficient and we had to queue for ages, we were told that they didn't have a room for us yet, it would be about one and a half hours. So we went out to get some lunch. On our return, the first room we were given (Superior Tower) was dingy, the mottled artex type finish to the ceiling was filthy and looked as if it hadn't seen paint since the hotel was built, the carpet had also seen better days, there were numerous dirty marks all over the walls and the bathroom was grubby, with little chrome left on any of the taps/fittings.

    Excellent Service


    I've stayed at the Ambassador Hotel for a number of times in my many trips to Bangkok. It is one of the best, most convenient hotels I can think of to stay during anybody's visit to Bangkok. The rooms are large and comfortable. The service was excellent! I am delighted at the wide variety of restaurants in the hotel. Only steps from Bangkok's Skytrain, I am able to reach most of Bangkok without the hastle of the imfamous traffic congestion. Plus, there is plenty to do just around the hotel! Highly recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Bangkok.

    My morning call


    I woke up with bird song!! I can't believe there is Big bird garden right in the middle of hotel...Cool!!!

    With variety and tasteful breakfast, I was very sure everyone will enjoy. The service was helpful and friendly enough to offer me what I had asked for. The hotel location is just next to Nana skytrain station. The rate of this hotel is uncomparably cheap comparing to the hotel surronding it, room is acceptable for the low rate. Whatelse traveler can ask for?

    Very good choice


    The Ambassador is a very good choice for a 3-4 star level hotel at the heart of the Sukhumvit area. The hotel has two wings, the tower wing is newer and recommended. You can walk into a travel agency on soi 11/1 or soi 13 and book a room for the same day for 40$, this is a very good value for your money. The chain hotels are probably better but much more expensive, and this hotel is definitely good enough for anything but a honeymoon... Rooms are spacious and the staff is what you would expect in Asia. I'm sure it will be my choice again next time I'm in that area of the city.
