      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!". I don't …

      Highlight of the day? Camden town! I could live there :3
      The plan was to check out the concert venue for tomorrow and take some cool pictures. I got no pictures because it was raining... and I ...

      So...after many many many hours of sitting on my behind I made it to London - Hooray! After running roughly 3 hours behind schedule on our flights, our pilot must have turned up the pace to get us into London only 20 minutes later than we were originally scheduled! Customs was hilarious - by the simple fact that it doesn't really exist. We jumped on the tube to Kings Cross and were at the hostel by mid morning. We then ...

      ... a mixture of live actors, special effects and rides. Opening in 1974, it was initially designed as a museum of macabre history, but the Dungeon has evolved to become an actor-led, interactive experience. I found it a great experience and Kate could be heard screaming the place down on more than one occasion.

      After the Dungeon it was a Thames River Cruise with commentary and once again I found it great. The time now was 4.55pm and I quickly left ...

      ... was so congested and busy it would be so easy to get separated and this nearly happened today, but who would drive in this city?This trip was such hell, every other journey on it will surely seem like paradise.The tube, not the car, nor the bicycle, nor even the double decker bus, is the London way.Why fight it?It's like a magical pathway.
      The city is buzzing around us and it's great to be a part of it's pulse.
