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

Budget hotel, big rooms, limited but good food. Was in corner big room. Bathrooms can be a put off as is old. Can do with revamping. Roads outside are noisy till late night though. Staff and room service was great. Bar with limited selection.

I stayed at the hotel on 20/03/14. Quiet reasonable and not at all bad, after reviewing all the bad comments on it. Although not very clean, but still okay for USD 60 (including a good breakfast). No security issue, rooms are secure. Although lot of noise from the streets for those residing on 1st and 2nd floor. I stayed on... More

Tree beds and bathtub with waterheater so it is possible to get a decent shower. Housekeeping staff is great. Happy and chatty! But you will NOT get ANY sleep here. I... More

Stayed the night of 4 October 2013 and paid the Kenyan resident rate of KES3,800 for two people in a double room. Staff advised the tourist rate is US$70 per night. The hotel is in a good location right in the centre of Nairobi next to the National Archives. We stayed on the 6th floor but there was still noise... More

Terrible location!! The noise from outside is horrific. Crowded entrance (very scary) Abysmal service!! Very old furniture and fittings. Taking a shower was an an experience for the brave and desperate. Security does not seem assured. Not recommended at all.
