Historical Traveller Reviews of Ambassadors Hotel
We cancelled our reservation after seeing the roomfrom A TripAdvisor Member
My wife's first impression was not quite great due to a fact that what greeted us at the front door we girls smoking and blocking the door, whom my wife thought are hookers!
During the negotation with the front-desk personnel, who was a tad haugthy, he told us that we have no choice but to take his price because, he thought, we have no where else to stay, especially at that time. He also told us that the room he will give us that early morning may or may not be the same room that we will get for the entire stay. Regardless, he told us, we will have to check-out later that day and will have to check back in to "officially" start our stay based on our booked dates. What a hussle! Nonetheless, my wife and I decided to see the room first since it was getting very late. He gave us a room key and was very surprised to learn that it was one of their few basement rooms. We have never been to a hotel with basement rooms before! After briefly seeing the state of that room, my wife vehemently told me that we leave at once. So, we decided to wake-up my wife's friend who lives in London to stay there for the night. Afterwards, we arranged a stay in another friend's house for the rest of our brief stay in London.
We called hotels the next morning to cancel our reservation and file our reasons for cancelling. Yet, hotels deemed it necessary, as policy, to still charge us with a 1 night stay. Since we abosulutely did not want to be there, we had to sacrifice and lose money to hotels for a hotel that is so terrible, we walked out of there as soon as we got a taste of the impolite staff and the crappy basement hotel room that they have!

Having read the previous reviews, I feel obligated to reportfrom A TripAdvisor Member
All budget rooms in London are small. If you can manage small quarters, you could not go wrong if you could get the rate we got: 4 nights for 209 GBP. The price was that low because the 4th night was free. What's to complain about? Though obviously some people have had bad experiences, I think the hotel more than deserves my feed-back. I could not have been more satisfied!
Rotten Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Dried urine all over toilet seat
Only cold tap working in sink
Pubic hair in my bed (gross)
Chipboard furniture, very scabby
No curtains, just venetian blinds
Horrible condensation problem
One office chair in triple room
3 beds squashed together
and yes.........I was bitten by something too!!!
Breakfast was fine, staff pleasant, couldn't wait to get out of there.
s not so bad!from LHathaway
The breakfast was adequate - mostly cereals and toast but as it was included in our room rate I did not mind. If I had paid the £5 extra however I'd have expected better. The rooms were a little worn and scruffy and our blinds did not work.
If you want somewhere cheap to crash after a hard day enjoying all London has to offer then I would have no hesitation in recommending the Ambassadors. I'd definitely stay there again. If you are looking for luxury then you might need to pay a bit more and go elsewhere!
Not good!from A TripAdvisor Member
Stay out of the basement rooms!from A TripAdvisor Member
Our new room did not have a phone, so we had to place calls at a pay phone in the lobby and go to the reception desk to report any problems.
We feel fortunate that we were unharmed and that the thief did not get our passports or wallets, but we will definitely not stay in this hotel again.
Did these people stay at the same place I did?!from Stef_NYC
More Bed Bugsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
One of worsed hotels Iv ever stayed atfrom JeffreyMelbourne
Mould on the bathroom roof
Bare light globe in bathroom
Two empty light fittings in bedroom
No sink plug
No bath plug
Hair on shower fitting
Cracked unstable shower head
Bathroom floor not clean
Very heavy, constant dripping coming from the bath tap (we had to put a towel under the tap to allow us to sleep)
Bedroom floor not vacumed (very dirty)
The single beds were very very uncomfortable and very small
We had two plastic glasses in the bathroom on arrival, when one split (after two days) I asked for a replacement and was told I could not have one, but I could take a coffee cup from the breakfast room if I liked,
I have emailed the hotel and the owners with my complaints and have not to date recieved reply.
Top Local Tips for London
Travel cards If you are traveling with a family, don't waste a second in getting the Train / Coach family travel passes. For travel within London, the Oyster seemed to beat all other travel cards. And Children under 11 travel free on the tube when accompanied by an adult. When traveling inter-city, National Express Family card pays you back pretty quickly. On the trains, the Family card does the same.

Ambassadors Hotel Stay away from the Ambassadors hotel in Collingham St. There are much better hotels in London.
