the rooms are large and clean and offer all amenities you need. the noise level from outside though was too high due to traffic and construction work (like almost everywhere in China). To get to the main attractions of Shanghai, just take the taxi to Jing´An Temple and take the metro.

Due to my previous hotel closing for renovations I had to move and my office booked me into the Ambassador Hotel. To begin with the positives, this hotel has many floors, I was situated on the 21st floor which offered a very good view. The room, although an odd rectangular shape, had plenty of windows. The breakfast both mornings was... More

We started using the Ambassador Hotel last year because it is near one of our key Shanghai based clients and because through them we could get a good Corporate rate. An already pretty low priced option for Shanghai became super affordable because of that. At my first visit I wasn't expecting much, but I have to say I was pleasantly... More

Had a couple of nights here in November prior to cruising. Nice comfortable hotel. Easy to find. There is a building site next door but we couldn't hear it at all. No doubt in a year you'll have a different view from the one we had. Breakfast was a bit odd - lots of western style offerings (bacon, eggs etc.)... More

This hotel had a very nice interior and decor and was lovely and clean. The breakfast was also very nice and had a large variety of foods and the rooms were great. The only problem i had with this hotel was that the wifi was only available in the lobby and not in the rooms. It is also quite far... More

Stayed for for the last night of our 2 week trip in China, all accomodation had been pre booked for us with non smoking rooms. After check in and going up to our room we discovered it was a smoking room which smelt very stongly of smoke, not to our taste at all. We called reception and informed them of... More

I stayed here for 5 nights. The room is clean, but the bed is a bit harder than what I am used to. Buffet breakfast has both Western and Chinese food, but the food remained the same for the days I was there. The hotel is close to major shopping areas. The only complaint I have is the lack of...

The hotel is fairly new and clean. Rooms are nice and not too small. Staff is friendly and efficient but English is very limited. Even the location is rather central it is sorts off the beaten tracks and not easy to find. Subway station line 2 Jiangsu Road or Jing'an Temple 10 to 15 minute walk but you need to... More

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. The rooms are clean & comfortable, normally what anyone would expect from a 3 star. The amenities were also reasonable. Strangely the hotel did not have wi-fi throughout. It was restricted only to the ground floor. The staff was friendly & efficient. Same goes for the housekeeping. They have a fairly good breakfast...

We stayed at the Ambassador for three nights at the end of a cruise. Firstly we had a problem with our hotel voucher which was issued to us in the UK and had the wrong dates. The hotel was not very helpful and the couple who were with us spent £76 in telephone calls back to the UK in order... More
