    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.

    ... quando sentamos, respiramos e ouvimos nossas musicas prediletas na beira do Thames com nossas pernas balançando sobre o rio, ela me diz que sentiu muita saudade. No meio do teatro vendo Fantasma da Opera ouço seu soluco emocionado e tenho vontade de abraçá-la porque sei exatamente o que ela está sentindo, em quem está pensando. Os dias com ela sao sempre cheios de e emoção. Eu sentei muita saudade (mais ainda). Queria leva-la comigo para minha jornada, porque meu riso é tao feliz contigo!!!

    ... was another 2 hours to our hotel, because of the fab London traffic lol. We arrived at the hotel the tour finished at (we are staying 1 night only as it was too expensive, but a nice area) and said our goodbyes to everyone and checked into our room. We got an upgrade I think, cos our room was huge...even had a 3 seater sofa, queen bed and a extra single bed. Bit more of an upgrade from some of the hotels on tour lol. Only downside was they had no aircon, and as ...

    ... br> We said our goodbyes to Hannah and Meg about 5.30 and they headed off on the next part of their Gap Year adventure and we headed for Heathrow. Well what a debacle awaited us. As we pulled up at the departures building Annie received a text to say our flight was cancelled. We proceeded to the counter where Greg also received his text and a Qantas rep advised us that " due to mechanical failure of the plane" we were being ...

    ... gave advice to Dickens, and sidled up to Sean Connery. Sam stood a bit taller than the most realistic figure, Bruce Willis in Die Hard, and was irresistibly attracted to Patrick Stewart, a fellow sci-fi geek. My dream brush with fame was Beyonce…right when the "Single Ladies" video started playing. I expected the wax figures to complete the tour, but there was a "ride" in which we got to see the history of London in about 10 minutes. It was ...

    ... first at Moo, a cute Argentinian place. I got weird red face after a couple of bloody Mary's. Apparently I'm allergic to Argentinian bloody Mary's. Ha! After Moo, we continued our journey down brick lane until we decided to stop at a place called All Star. It was very unassuming from the outside so you can imagine our surprise when we discovered a huge bowling alley complete with karaoke rooms. After a couple drinks, we decided the ...
