This hotel is beautiful. The grounds are well kept, the rooms are beautiful, it has a/c, free internet and room service. The dinner area is lovely and the food is great. The staff is very friendly and they make you feel at home away from home. It also has a pool. The location is great close to everything especially if...

If you are just looking for a place to lay your head for a few hours, maybe I would recommend this hotel. Otherwise, please do not even think about staying here. The pictures make the hotel somewhat look appealing but it is old and needs much work. The rooms are dingy and dark but I gave it one star because...

I have been visiting Trinidad & Tobago just about every year around the Carnival season with a gang of Norwegian men. I have tried several different hotels and of course, we also try to find a place where the price is reasonable and not a "rip-off" just because it's Carnival. Two years ago I stayed at The Ambassador for Carnival...

I visited Trinidad to attend the wedding of a dear friend. As I was not familiar with the Island I put my husband in charge of finding me an accomodation close to the wedding venue. So I ended up at Ambassador's Hotel. The place looks nice from the outside, but when you look closer e.g. bathrooms you notice the place...

All the reviews are absolutely accurate. As Port of Spain was virtually fully booked we stayed here during Carnival for 4 nights at an outrageous cost of $350 per night. (Daylight robbery). No room service the whole time. We were given one towel each and occasionally managed to swap it for a clean one from a trolley in the corridor....

Stayed at this hotel three years ago and returned in 2015 no upgrades were done. Old furniture rooms smelt old leaking ac unit that dripped water whole day. Breakfast choices were limited and the balcony had moss All in all a terrible experience will not be patronizing this hotel again...

Like Murissa, I visited during Carnival. When we checked in, many of the room doors were open.....you could see that they were not clean, feces in the toilets, etc.The rooms were outdated, filthy and crowded with furniture. In addition, the water in the shower had a foul brownish-yellow color and the bed sheets were stained. The bats flying up and...

I stayed at this hotel with my family for a number of days in a number of rooms. This must have been wonderful in its hay days but this place has certainly seen its better days. It is unbelievable how terribly this hotel has been kept up. It's one thing to be outdated (which it is) It's another thing to...
