    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.

    ... one was a wall which was engraved with all of the names of the wars and battles that the Australians had fought in. Right at that time were lucky enough to see the Royal Mounted Guards ride right past us. They looked very disciplined and serious. No smiles on those guys. I wouldn't want to mess with them. We went through the arch on our way to Buckingham Palace. I noticed that there were heaps of people around and we pretty ...

    So today ended up being a great day- went to work only to be told that Bossman wanted to work alone and therefore I should work from home- this is Kiwi speak for a holiday!

    So first things first, I updated my Spotify playlists and then organised to meet Aleks for yum cha in Brixton. This actually worked out perfectly since on Sunday Aleks is off to Italy for a month.

    Then after ...

    ... recited this story to my friend Maki during the week, to which he said 'the classic Nick Keating day.’ He’s not far wrong. For the record, Lancashire were bowled out for 266 by stumps on day one, despite the bloke at second slip dropping three catches before hanging onto the next two.

    I worked four of the days this week, so that kept me busy. I couldn’t have had a nicer week, as I got sent to pretty much all the amazing schools in ...

    ... kids didn't want to part with their allowance at this shop and we left without any purchases.

    Got back to Covent Garden at 10:00 and had take-away from "The Shake Shack" noted for its frozen custard, fries and burgers. Add frozen custard to the all time best frozen treats; like a super rich soft ice cream. Saturday night life in London was just getting started and the kids got to walk by some lively pubs and street corners on our late night walk home!

    The weather has been so kind to us. After a good night's sleep at Brickyard cottage we ventured into London with Tilly. We traveled from Wimbledon to Waterloo station on the District line. From the station we turned left and made our way to the London eye. For some reason the traditional 30 minute wait was down to 15 minutes. This was truly a great way to introduce London to both the boys. We were able to point out most of the significant landmarks. Eventually ...
