I stayed at the Perth Ambassador for three nights while in the city for work. I arrived on a Sunday afternoon so the traffic wasn't too bad and the hotel was easy to find. During the week it wasn't as easy as the traffic is heavy (as is norm on a main inner city road) and I also had to run the gauntlet of buses that use the left hand lane. There is onsite parking, at an extra cost to the guest. Because the car park is open to the public it can be quite full during the day.
As noted by other reviewers the welcome at reception isn't particularly warm. This could be a cultural issue, most of the staff seem to be recent arrivals with limited English skills.
My room on the 5th floor was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean but hasn't been updated in a while. The plug holes are rusting out from age. Each day the bed is made and towels changed but whiskers from my first shave were still there when I checked out. There is a movie channel on the tv. It costs, I was told $19- $30 PER MOVIE! You can buy a dvd for less. The tv has the Perth digital stations and a few foxtel channels so I didn't need the movies.
The restaurant has fantastic service. The dinner menu is good, the food comes quickly and desserts are awesome. The hot breakfast is extensive, but the food is cold. The bainmarie needs to be turned up a bit.
Overall a good stay and I would stay again.
