    Nice and clean. Staff are helpful but can't meet all your needs. It is in a good location and was reasonably priced.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ambassadors Hotel London

    Great location, poor facilities and service


    The location is excellent: quiet but still near various tube stations. On the other hand, the rooms are small and somewhat dirty. The service is plain poor: the cleaning lady left my door unlocked a couple of times, the congierges seemed a bit bored of their lives, the keycards failed to work...

    Health hazzard


    Totally disgusting hotel. The room was cramped, dirty and had bedbugs and fleas. It's a health hazard and I am going to report it to local authorities.

    Good Value


    Close to Earl's Court tube, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum. Room was adequate, but got a good rate at 63 GBP which includes continental breakfast & daily paper.



    Disaster from start to finish. The heating and hot water were not working so we were moved to another hotel "nearby" which was miles from where we needed to be, dirty, small and unpleasant.

    The staff at the Ambassadors were unhelpful, unapologetic and rude. They had a complete unappreciation for the inconvenience they were causing and when we complained about the "new" hotel they completely ignored every point we made and washed their hands of us.

    This place is a disgrace to the whole hotel industry in England.

    Avoid at all costs.

    You get what you pay for!!


    Overall, this hotel wasn't too bad, given the low rates. However, I would hardly rank this as a 3-star hotel. The single bedroom is literally a tiny little box and the shower barely gives you space to move, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who suffers from claustrophobia!! Breakfast offered a decent continental selection. The location is probably this hotels best feature. It is within walking distance of the Earls Court and Gloucester Road stations.

    No hot water and no heating


    the heating wasn't working there was no hot water and the staff said it wasn't their fault. every time the wind blew hard the window blew open. No compensation or even aplogies offered. In it's favour it was at least clean and in easy walking distance of the underground station.



    Moldy ceilings, loose windows, graffiti, unbearable heating, dirty carpets, bad service at the juice bar, and they like to overbook rooms to ensure they get their money.

    What the hell was this?


    Room was dirty. Toilet was the ugliest ever seen, no toilet seat.

    Service was terrible at first. After many complaints we got a new room, freshly refurbished. That was o.k. Breakfast was a catastrophy. No bread, dirty dishes, no service a.s.o. Hotel is not to be recommended.

    At least not a single star worth.

    Service was great, hotel is dated


    Area is great close to tubes. Staff was very helpful with directions, suggestions, confirmations, cab service, tour bookings.

    Hotel has a great English breakfast.

    Rooms are small and dated but clean.

    The cafe was clean, service and food were great.

    I must still be suffering from jet lag because I am sitting here at a loss on what to write or maybe it's a loss about writing something clever or interesting-in that case I shouldn't be too concerned as you read this blog because of me, not my cleverness. :) At this point I feel like quoting Peter Pan when I say "Oh the cleverness of me!".

    ... hour at the hotel at 6.30pm ha ha Funny where our priorities are. We also had dinner in the hotel restaurant. We were craving vegetables, so we had Chinese stir fry. Yum!!

    So that was our day. Big one huh. And the internet had been playing up, so I didn't get to send the blog when I wanted to. We are now in York again, so I will do the blog for today's adventure next.

    A Bus tour of London and a visit to Windsor Castle

    We drove around London seeing the sights. We passed by Harrod's department store. The tour guide told us of the lion cub they sold a man in the 1970s (see YouTube video). Her quote: "That takes the biscuit!" We passed by The Ritz (3 months advance reservation for tea) and Trafalgar Square (the center of London). The tour guide explained that London was founded in 43 A.D. by the Romans. The city was one square mile. In 1066, Edward the Confessor ("a holy ...

    ... I had my own show back in Australia. They did. I have it on video. Athena was my camera woman.

    They had to wait for Graham to leave before they could go home.
    I asked how will you know when he's ready for home. Well, he will walk past with his two dogs. And sure enough, in the middle of our laughter, Graham trots past our table in his trackies, two dogs under leash.
    'Night Graham', we all chorused.
    He said ' goodnight'.

    Well, I tell ...

When I eventually had to get them out, I told them that I would remember them next time. So, Dom Adam and warned. P.s - thanks for helping me stack the chairs!
