My room was very comfortable. Unfortunately, some of the passengers in our group were under the dance club and were disturbed late into the night. A nice perk is the nearby convenience store two doors to the left as you leave the hotel - affordable water and snacks. There is a post office not too far from the hotel, but... More

My room at this hotel was not as large as others on my tour, but it was large enough. It was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. The lighting was good, but I am not sure the A/C was turned on as I tried adjusting the temperature and didn't see any change. There were two shops just off the lobby, one... More

The hotel has average rooms but clean. The facilities are very good. Location is great. In walking distance to all the sights. Fresh food markets around the corner and plenty of food shops around the hotel. The downfall is that the restaurant on the 9th floor turns into a dance club at night. We are on the 7th floor and...

This is my second stay at the Ambassador hotel; I had to spend a few days here for business purposes and upon the urging of my spouse extended the stay and took her with me. Russian hotels are rather on the expensive side, and my rating takes this fact into account. I deliberately chose to return to the ambassador, although... More

I stayed at the Ambassador Hotel for 8 nights as part of a music tour, and I was not disappointed. Location: off Sadovaya street, opposite the Yusupof Gardens, within walking distance of St Isaac's cathedral, Nevsky Prospekt and two metro stations. (Warning: it can be tricky navigating the metro with a suitcase as there are often steps leading in and... More

Beautifully designed relatively small hotel walking distance from the center of the city - Nevskiy prospect (will take about 20 minutes to walk along Sadovaya street or Griboedov's canal). My room was not too big, but nicely done. Other rooms, they showed me were bigger, but did not want to move in the middle of my 1 week stay. Staff... More

The Ambassador is well situated with good access to shops (including a 24hr convenience store 2 doors down to buy drinking water), some of the big sights plus the metro station for when the walk is a bit far. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well equipped, although on the small side for the price (pretty standard for Russia). The... More

Was visiting this beautiful city for 3 days and it was business,so what I needed from the hotel I got! So, starting from the very beginning...check your room first! A perfect location of the hotel doesn't mean that you will get at least a good view! I was lucky!) Came late and fall asleep,but not for a long time! Was... More

The hotel is quite simple but the staff make it awful, some services must be improved like for example the English skill of the staff or the basic point of Taichung then how to smile and to show some willing to help, 80% of the staff is rude and impolite showing you how annoying you are for any request you...
