Yes, exactly as you read! My room was supposed to be clean. I confidently took the key from the reception, located not very far (but I had to carry my luggage for approx. 10 minutes from AMBIENT Residence to AMBIENT Pension and then back again...). I preferred to stay here, because I had to meet some guests who stayed in... More

Staying at the Residence instead if the Pension or Hotel might not meet your expectations. I went there with a group of friends and everyone had a different experience. Some of the rooms are larger that others, to the point that some may feel claustrophobic and other way too big. If you're lucky (or book in advance) I think you... More

I'm surprised about the bad reviews. I visited this place with my friends in August 2013 and we were really satisfied. Maybe there are huge differences in room quality but there wasn't single thing we could complain about during our three-night stay, especially considering the price.

Great room, great prices and great hospitality! A smart choice! The residence was very close to the centre, the room very clean and with nice design. It worths every single euro. I definitely recommend.

Likes: Great staff, good location, near the city center. They have vouchers for "Paradisul Acvatic", allowing you to save some money. Dislikes: The fact that in order to check in you have to go to the Ambiance Hotel, even though you´re staying at the Ambiance Residence. There is no reception at the Residence. There is no elevator; no other option... More

DO NOT TRUST THE GOOD REVIEWS. THIS PLACE IS A DUMP!!! Dusty, antiquated furniture, dank, musty, poorly lit hallways, low ceiling claustrophobia-inducing rooms, this place is so bad, we turned right around and walked out. Have to point out that the maid staff was very kind, but otherwise there's no concept of customer service whatsoever. It's not even a bargain.... More

As previously stated by others the Residence Ambient is the unstaffed hotel/building of the 3 ambient hotels. You can not check in at this location or park in front of the building. You have to check in and park at the main location which is about a 5 minute walk. Our room was very clean and spacious with nice bedding.... More

Residence Ambient is the unstaffed hotel/building of the three Ambient hotels, the other being Hotel Ambient and Pension Ambient. Checkin, front desk and dinning room are all in Pension Ambient which is about a block away. Location is about a 15 min walk to the old town. Room is clean and wifi works. Given that the dining room is in... More

We checked in and found out the actual hotel rooms were down the street and around the corner. Thankfully the taxi was good and he waited and then brought us to the right place. Taxis are very affordable there. You won’t get ripped off by them either… Beware there is no elevator and we had to drag heavy bags up... More
