There is not enough space to describe the many disappointments this Hotel offered us! Starting with a car parked all day in their drop-off zone - sanctioned by the Hotel, the hour it took to check-in, our surprise delayed 'early entry' when we NEEDED to dress for a wedding, the expensive off-site parking, the dismal room, no iron or board,...

This hotel is in a really convenient location close to many attractions and the bus stops for the airport and elsewhere. The worn paintwork in many parts of this hotel is not encouraging but room 212 had all my essentials, namely a comfortable bed, a quiet, adequate sized room, well functioning bathroom, good hanging space (in a worn-looking wardrobe and...

Yeah, what can you say about this place, I wasn't aware hotels like this still existed. Headed to Adelaide with mates for the cricket, the price and location are bang on, but this is definitely a case of you get what you pay for. 2 of the 3 rooms we had barely had natural light, and the bathroom in our...

Although pleased at the central location and price per night during the festival, the room was grungy: cobwebs, unclean surfaces and filthy carpets - and the staff were cranky! Breakfast was an ordeal as we were a little late and the barman bordered on rude and bored. An Aboriginal woman at the bar: sober and well dressed asked for a... More

The Ambassador Hotel is the filthiest and most unhygienic place I have ever had the displeasure of staying at. There was blood on the mattress that was covered up with a doubled up sheet, the shower was blocked and the water was overflowing into the room, cracks and holes in the walls, I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy....

Went here for neice's engagement party, was surprised, down the stairs was a private venue area, plenty of room, lots of seating, and a bar also separate toilets, so you didn't have to venture out of the area, and no drop in's from strangers, lovely set up, little booths and big lounge type seating, was a great night with finger...

The moment we entered in our room, if felt like crying.Its was so old , shabby and dirty that we wanted to get out immediately but luckily we were there for only 1 night. I think poor cleaning staff did their part well but really cleaning this place would be beyond human imagination as I don't think it can be... More

i have stayed here a couple times while on business in Adelaide for conferences, the staff were amazing, happy and passionate people, very friendly and very helpful. The hotel has its quirky but cool lift which makes it easy to access the other floors and the restaurant is amazing! the prices are brilliant compared to other hotels in the area... More
