This is our 6th night at this hotel and the third night that the throbbing disco beat from the 8th floor weddings are preventing us from sleep. If I didn't know better I would swear I was at a gay bar on Bourbon Street in the '70's! On the plus side, the hotel is well located, the Georgian restaurant next... More

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.
