Stayed here on a business trip, very central and 5 mins walking from train and bus station. Its a decent place with all amenities available inside the hotel. There is a supermarket, Kebab shop and wine shop just outside the place.

I arrived late to the hotel, but was greeted and checked in by a helpful staff member. The room was nice, clean and comfortable, although it was a little small and the bathroom was also small. It did have a shower instead of a bathtub, but for me that is actually preferred, as I really don't like the hotels where... More

Stayed here while on business. The location is good, 5 minutes from the train station. Breakfast is also good with a large selection. Lobby and restaurant area is fairly impressive. However I have stayed here twice and the rooms are very small and dark. They're quite worn down are in need of modernisation, although they are kept clean. This hotel... More

Only reason I stayed here was because my plane was delayed and it was difficult to find other accomodation in Drammen that night. It is right by the train station. Reception a bit gloomy but the rooms were okay, and breakfast was standard.

This hotel holds a good business standard but is not extraordinary in any way. Well wort the price it is. Great breakfast buffet in good Norwegian tradition in hotels like this. Welcoming staff. Clean room with comfy bed. Free wifi. Payed parking right under the hotel. Short walk to the train station, restaurants etc in Drammen.

The Ambassador hotel in the centre of Drammen is a mid-range hotel that excels in some parts and slightly fails to deliver in others. Getting to the hotel following the gps is not easy as the square and surrounding streets are walking zones. If you come by car and need to get to the garage I recommend asking staff for... More

Nice hotel with large rooms and good facilities. However, our bathroom had an awful smell that did not go away. The staff at the desk could also be a little more friendly and smiling. As a paying guest you should expect a warmer welcome. Location is very good in central Drammen. Breakfast was very good with an excellent variety of... More

The room was ok. Most happy that I was able to open the window and that wifi worked well and pretty fast. The shower cabinet doors was jammed, so I had to use my strength to slide them. Breakfast was ok, but the facility extremely dark and boring.

A large hotel which can accommodate large groups but not very welcoming and a rather gloomy ambiance. Room was clean and spacious ( superior room ) bed was comfy and pillows nice and sof but you could hear noises from above and outside vey clearly.

I was staying here whilst working locally - great location in the centre of Drammen, but the hotel is of average quality. when i arrived on Monday the restuarant and bar had just opened, having being closed for the holiday, which is a bit strange for a hotel. Breakfast is average, althought there is plenty to eat of all the... More
