The hotel is quite old, and is expensive compared to the room and amenities you get. They dont even have a toothpaste or a shampoo ready. But the staff are nice. Their breakfast is good but doesnt have variety (we ate the same breakfast for three days) and it is located near a bus stop so there is beeping noise... More

Everything about The Ambassadeur Nairobi is creepy, except the entrance. Gives the feeling that there are ghosts haunting through the whole hotel, with televisions without movie channels, telephones that do not work, toilet seats that feels like knives, baths with Jewish fingernails inside and showers that do not work. Walls that are broken and ovens to fill up complete wholes... More

Stayed three days before and after safari. Good location in central Nairobi and OK rooms but the rest was not a thrilling experience. Had dinner one night and it was very poor, room service went to the wrong room, terrible noise all night and the wifi didn't work at all. Breakfast was OK. I'll stay somewhere else next time in...

I stayed in this hotel for one night only. I had arrived from Kampala by an overnight bus and looked for a hotel near the bus station and there I was. I was given a very nice room overlooking the busy roads of downtown Nairobi. Wifi never worked in the room. Never had chance to experience their breakfast as I... More

I spent a night at the hotel because it was conveniently located where I had been dropped by bus it would give me easy access to airport buses which I intended to use the following day.

I have seen the Ambassadeur described as "tired colonial" which sums it up quite well. The decor is tired and in need of a make over, but the rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. Bathroom was tatty, but again clean. Food was good especially breakfast. Restaurant food was acceptable, but the full menu not always available. Service was good... More
