I recently visited the ambassador was pleasantly surprised as I hadn't been there in awhile. The building is as beautiful as I remember but inside has changed completely with the launch of their new cook house. It was very spacious and comfortable. The food was great, the staff were very friendly and it was great to see a few of... More

A lovely place. Very historic and up to date. Well maintained. I will admit that getting to our room was confusing as we had to go up two different elevators and down two different hallways. Room though was spacious however with a great view of the city. A couple words of caution though. There is one way in and one... More

Used the hotel to sleep, nothing more so I dont feel I can complete a comprehensive review, but the room was incredibly spacious (as was our bathroom). Staff were friendly enough, it only took 15 minutes to walk into the city centre. Only issue being smokers huddling around the front door which then permeated aroundthe lobby and stairwell, but apart... More

We had a balcony with an amazing view! It was also the largest room I've had in Europe or even the US, and that may have been a mistake but I didn't say anything. The full breakfast provided was great and had everything. The front desk was helpful and very nice. If I went back I wouldn't mind staying again.

Just came back from a weekend in this nice old stile hotel. Will recommend this hotel to a friend. Not far from the city just on the hill about 10 minutes walk. Only save some strength for you way back up on the hill. The hotel is fine in and out, old stile doesn't mean old rack at all. Service... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend. The exterior of the hotel is well kept. As you enter you are greeted by a newly renovated bar/lounge are that is out of place with the old décor of the rest of the hotel. The bar itself was the only thing that saved this stay. the food was superb, excellent and completely satisfying... More

We stayed here two night. The hotel is in good position, high up on a hill overlooking the city but at the same time not far away from the city centre. Our room was incredibly spacious and clean. The staff very friendly.
