      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.

      A week to explore

      A travel blog entry by dposner on Jan 11, 2015

      ... just feel like I graduated last semester because I finished my major (ID girls will understand this) so part of me is like what the heck am I doing back at the beginning of a semester?! but only one left until graduation in May! Got to push through!

      I will maybe write at the end of this week about my first week of school/internship, hope you all are staying warm. Its like 45 degrees here and Londoners think this is freezing, I laugh at their ignorance of true cold!

But for the time being, I get to look forward to plane-roulette (who am I sitting next to for all that distance?) plane food (is it still cardboardy or have they learnt how to cook 32000ft in the air) and finding out the ending to my book of what actually ends up happening to the 100 year old man who climbed out of his ...

      ... at times when I had all my bags, I wouldn't think about the money and get a cab to my transport/accommodation, because my back really suffers when I drag all this **** around train stations and buses. So I went outside and hopped in a London black cab, told the cabbie Abbey Road, and settled smugly. 20 pounds and 20 minutes later, I was sitting outside my host's building grumbling to myself about how much cheaper it would have been if I'd just gotten the bloody bus. Sometimes, ...

      We've arrived!
      We started our trip in style flying first class (thank you Iceland Air for the free upgrade!)
      We filled out the necessary paperwork and before entering to get our passports stamped, we traded some money. I will preface this entry by saying what everyone knows and says about London but are too much in denial to believe: London is not cheap. We exchanged $1000 and only got about 500 sterlings! Everything still ...

      Since Jay was up in Leeds for meetings today, the kids caught up on sleep and woke up late. They've been burning the candle at both ends so it was a much needed lazy morning. Once we got mobilized we walked to the Jewish Museum in an area nearby called Camden Town. The museum has a "mikveh" (a Jewish ritual bath) dating from the 13th century. It was discovered on a building site in 2001 and identified as from the home of the ...
