Stayed at this hotel three years ago and returned in 2015 no upgrades were done. Old furniture rooms smelt old leaking ac unit that dripped water whole day. Breakfast choices were limited and the balcony had moss All in all a terrible experience will not be patronizing this hotel again...

Like Murissa, I visited during Carnival. When we checked in, many of the room doors were open.....you could see that they were not clean, feces in the toilets, etc.The rooms were outdated, filthy and crowded with furniture. In addition, the water in the shower had a foul brownish-yellow color and the bed sheets were stained. The bats flying up and... More

I stayed at this hotel with my family for a number of days in a number of rooms. This must have been wonderful in its hay days but this place has certainly seen its better days. It is unbelievable how terribly this hotel has been kept up. It's one thing to be outdated (which it is) It's another thing to... More

I will start with the Pros: Excellent location, literally 1 minute away from Long Circular Mall by car, and right at the start of all the j'ouvert action in Port of Spain. It was extremely close to all the carnival activities that my husband and I walked Monday and Tuesday from Woodbrook where our band finished back to the hotel.... More

I spent a few days at the Ambassador Hotel in August 2014 and the experience was horrible, horrible. My wife and I were with a group, and when we arrived we were greeted by big mosquitoes in the lobby, after arriving in the island late in the night and being very tired after flight delays, we had a further wait...
