If considered just as a hotel, the Grand Ambassador is excellent: comfortable rooms, attentive service, surprisingly diverse breakfast buffet, free wifi, convenient airport transfer and more. It is within easy reach of many key areas of the city though not located absolutely centrally, and in our case it was excellently located for the World Symposium on Choral Music at the... More
