We stayed at the Ambassador with friends & I must say that we all loved it. It is old & has an old world charm it dates back to 1841 & the years haven't been kind to this old place. It has a staircase going to nowhere the furniture is old but loved it seems to be trapped in time... More

First of all i have to say we all really liked this place. However if you want new & shiney then this place is not for you. If you want character, rambling stairs, charm and a old fashioned elevator that you have to slide the door shut manually then check this place out. Stayed on 3rd floor which is the... More

Well we wanted a central location and right on King William Stree this was perfect for a budget place close to all shopping and night life. We only wanted to hit the sack there before travelling to the cunntry so all goo what we expected and as always in adelaide friendly staff and nice people in the bars and venue.

Very old, run down establishment. The corridors were long and cold. The lift 100 years old. The aircon/heater was noisy and produced no heat. The only good thing was the shower. There was plenty of hot water!

I'm in two minds about this hotel - Good things: location is excellent, SO central, two blocks from Rundle mall, and it's a lot cheaper than surrounding hotels. The place has a delightful vintage / heritage feel - if you go in not expecting a shiny new modern hotel then you will hopefully appreciate the grungy vintage aspect to it.... More

We held our daughters 21st at the Amba Bar, what a great venue! The retro furnishings and private bar and bathroom facilites were amazing and just what our daughter wanted. Our decorations were kept to a minimum. Plenty of space and seating. The staff were great and Nigel was only too happy to do what ever to make her night... More

From the moment we walked in we could tell we were in for a horrible stay. Customer service we recieved combined with a horrible stench spelt a recipe for disaster. We took a rickety old "manual" lift upto level two and needed to walk up several flights of stairs to level 3 with all our luggage. The room was nothing... More

Booked for lunch on the balcony. Great position and good wine. Food was slow to be served. Potato skins were great. Vegetarian main course was excellent. Steak was a very bad cut of meat and full of fat and was inedible. I wouldn't recommend it.

From the moment you walk through the door, the stench of stale cigarette smoke and last nights beer permeates throughout the foyer. The tile are old and cracked, the furniture in dire need of restoration. Then you climb into a rickety old elevator, which actually is quite entertaining.... But the smell, oh the smell, it is overwhelming.... The rooms are... More
