    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!".

    SUNDAY: We took our time this morning and had the most naughty but yummy breakfast of Lindt balls and cuppas in bed (in our defence we had no other food with no shops near the hotel), before packing up for the one hour drive to Beckton to drop off our luggage...then another hours drive to Gatwick to drop the car back....then the train into London! Once again we had a small dent on the back of the car, we think from someone banging ...

    ... went back to the hotel because it sounded like Ken was wanting to meet up with us, but by the time we got back to him, he was back in bed! We went back out and Got on a double decker, hop on hop off bus heading for Kensington Palace. We wanted to go stop by and say hi to William and Kate, maybe see the kids :-). There's a recording that plays as the bus drives and we learned some cool things ...

    ... with a tour at the Tower. It was not overly busy and we could follow round ok to all the places of interest. Crown Jewels were very interesting and amazing. I loved the travelator in front of all the crowns which meant that no one could stop and cause a jam. Just very interesting looking round the whole area. We went into the White tower in the middle with its displays of armour, horse armour etc as well as the interactive things on the top ...

    ... cabs. We even had to ask the local constabulary for directions to our hotel - just like 'The Bill'! When we headed out after freshening up, the sun was already shining on a simply beautiful day. We have started to get a grip on locations and have done a lot of walking - so much so John had to stop for a pint. We spent a couple of hours at Churchill War Rooms -amazing- and saw many other famous sites. Tomorrow ...
