It's not a 5 star hotel, however the welcome is much better because it's... More

Ambassador hotel is the perfect location because of distance from airport with the basic required amenities needed for travelers,although too basic to say the least. I was only here for one night on transit to a different destination.

Other than that, its well below average hotel who charge more than a 100 USD for a standard room@!
