Having checked the "professional pics" of the hotel, quite frankly, I'm confused. It can't be the same place we stayed at. Our room looked NOTHING like these pictures. Entering the hotel you might get the impression that yeah, right, this must be a nice place, but it won't last, trust me. Let me take you on a wonderful journey. When... More

We stayed 3 nights here in April whilst visiting family. Check in was swift and we had two rooms between the party of5. 2 completely different rooms they were too! Room 1 didn't have a bath tub but a small shower cubicle and no views other than some concrete. We took our toddler to our family members room to bathe... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times on business trips. Fairly small rooms but clean with great internet connectivity. Train station is only 100 meters away (Drammen is the last station on the Flytoget line, direct to Oslo airport which is handy) The dining room is spacious and the continental style breakfast is fine. A short walk over the... More

Good and clean room to working stay. Good breakfast international style. Good service at the front desk. Price is in line with the fare of this country. Taxis is on front of the hotel from early morning to late in the evening. Train station is 100m far away.

Really small room, with a tiny old bathroom. Television did not work. Noisy ventilation made it hard to sleep. (air quality on the room was also poor) Poor breakfast, not what you expect at a hotel. (I live in hotels half the year, and this was the least impressive breakfast I've seen in Norway) Only positive is location.

Stayed here overnight due to business. Room was okay, but very small. Since I booked a superior room (don't know if I got one), I still wonder what people do in the "normal" rooms. But the bed was nice and wide. The shower was not to my satisfaction, due to the showerhead (fixed to the wall) I had to stand... More

We were a couple of couples and one single staying for one night in First Hotel Ambassadeur. Coming by car and wanting to leave the car in the garage, it was a bit tricky to find our way. But a good explanation from the reception desk directed us right on the track. The garage was a public one, not only... More

The Room was clean and well presented small single functional box with bed, desk, TV and en-suite. Disappointingly the Non-Smoking Room smells of tobacco smoke despite the sign that tells occupiers they will be fined if they smoke in the room. Apart from this there is a well equipped Gym available at a small additional cost, NOK 100 per week,... More

Here, You can negotiate a deal. It´s a perfectly OK hotel with a not so cool location. It´s therefore cool to negotiate a deal. The buffet is great if you cater a conference. You charge the conference and the meal ticket and make the arrangement with the hotel. Everybody will be happy here. It´s a good hotel for conferences, and... More
