Oh dear...once you've paid fifteen quid a night to leave your car in their cramped parking garage, the fun can really start. My room was tiny but high celilinged, leaving me with the freakish impression it had been tipped on its side. One of the lights didn't work and the room was decorated in beige woodchip and plastic. There was... More

On a business trip to Drammen booked into First hotel Ambassadeur I find the central location, parking facilities included, very good. These are all important factors when on a business trip. Room are also well on pari for a four star hotel, but the wifi was too slow throughout the evening. Annoying yes, and bad for productivity. Then breakfast -... More

Nice hotel for business, easy to reach with the train from Oslo (airport). This hotel is near the center of Drammen. The breakfast is very good. The single room was not so big, but for a business visit it was ok.

My entry was from the parking garage, and the first impression was like from behind a waste-bin. The impression of the interior was that is had been re-decorated on a tight budget... My room re-inforced that impression, but all was clean, and I found the staff friendly and service-minded. Breakfast wasn't plentiful, but I found it ok. Value for the... More

Stayed here for two nights in January for business. The hotel was great and the rooms were fine, but because the weather outside was horrible and I didn't know my way around a new town I decided to eat in on my first night. I was directed to the deserted bar area where I was offered a slim menu, and... More

I stayed in this hotel for couple of nights during my business trip. What can I say, everything is clean, everything is working but such a details as shower with curtain and shower head fixed in the wall, or absence of glasses in the room ( where I can put my tooth brush? how drink tap water?) can spoil the...

I stayed here on business for one night and was met at reception by an attractive, happy and professional. The first issue came when at 2030 I asked what time the bar closed...after travelling for so many hours I usually like to grab a glass of wine to relax. I was told, the hotel bar closed awhile ago...in their defence,... More
