My husband and I just loved this hotel. It was so grand, the views were breathtaking and the rooms lovely. We were on one of the upper levels with a small bird's nest balcony but we felt so privileged to be there and gaze out at the most beautiful views I have ever seen. The staff were always obliging especially... More

My husband and I had been travelling throughout Germany and Italy. We stayed in The Ambasciatori and just loved it! Our middle grade room was great with a view of partial sea and courtyard where you could hear the live Italian music from below at night. The reception area was full of high quality wood inlay and the internet was... More

Beautiful hotel, view, lobby, pool, restaurants. Our room however, was kind of dingy and dark and had no view but the rest of the hotel made up for staying there. If you want a beautiful room with a view, prepare to pay major dollars. Wait staff was excellent espeically Valentino. Taxi from train station to hotel is very pricey but... More

We stayed at the Ambasciatori for a week in December, 2007 before the holidays. This was of course off season so my wife and I were two of the few quests in the hotel. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, as were the public areas. The restaurant was closed during most of our stay. The breakfast was typical. The... More

Upon arrival, we were shown to our room which was very dark and small. The third bed for our son had been pushed against the doors to the balcony, almost blocking the door. We asked to be moved to another room, after showing us 2 other rooms, we accepted the largest, which was actually a suite. This room was nicely... More

Enjoyed a 4 nite stay at the Hotel Ambasciatori in October. The grounds are beautiful, the views spectacular. Service personnel were generally friendly and helpful. Hint: avoid dealing with the front desk except during the day..the evening staff has limited English and administrative skills. The breakfast buffet, esp the omellette station and pastries were excellent. Had one dinner in the... More

My wife and I have just enjoyed an excellent week at the hotel (12th to 19th Oct). All the staff, but particularly in the restaurant were very helpful and courteous. The food was plentiful, varied and prepared to a high standard. Our sea view room was splendid and the views of Vesuvius & Capri always ensure a perfect start to... More

My husband and I had our September wedding in the Cloisters and then the reception at the Ambasciatori in addition to our 10 day stay at the hotel. On the wedding day we had cocktails on arrival at the hotel and then the wedding breakfast on the secluded outside terrace looking out to the bay of naples. The flowers, wine,... More

I would only ever recommend a sea view room at this hotel because of the absolutely stunning views from the hotel's position at the top of the cliff to the east of the main harbour. We were made to feel welcome by the staff from the minute we arrived at the entrance to the hotel. We found all the staff... More

Beautiful location, but very bad rooms, especially standard - no view at all in a kind of shaft with sky showing two, three stories high. Professional reception, but this is all what can be said about this hotel. Go to the next door neighbour - Hotel Riviera, much nicer rooms, great reception, very helpfull and much better food.
