Ambassador Hotel
Ranked #106 of 453 Hotels in Mumbai (Bombay)
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The ambassador hotel has always been a symbol right through my childhood... especially for the revolving restaurant it boasts of.... the revolving restaurant is at the topmost floor and it revolves and completes one revolution in an hour.... it has the most breathtaking view... the restaurant Flavours is good....the locality of this hotel is as good as Marine Plaza of which i have reviewed before... its in the heart of the city and it is easy to get around... the only drawback is the travel to the airport which is very irritating as it easily takes 2 hours in peak traffic and sometimes 3.... if u are having late night flights its not a problem u will be there in 45min....if u dont want to experience the view from the revolving restaurant u can just go across the road and enjoy it.... Colaba which hosts many restaurants is just minutes away... and u can enjoy ur stay... the rooms aregood... the service is good... all in all an awesome restaurant....

Room Tip: ask for the sea side view....

The is a very nice hotel in a great location. It's a 3 minute walk from a main rail station (Churchgate) along a main road so it's felt safe day or night. It looks quite luxurious both on the outside and inside. The room was great and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and presentable. I cannot fault the hotel really. Also, with the unique revolving restaurant tower, it's very easy to spot from far away so it's easy to find your way back home when walking. The taxi drivers also know it well so you should make it back easily even if you have trouble communicating with the taxi driver otherwise. On the negative side, I would say that I wasn't told in advance that the revolving restaurant was closed for renovation which would have been nice to know. Since I was travelling alone, it wasn't a huge deal to me but had I wanted to have a romantic dinner with my wife, I would have been much more annoyed. The 2nd negative was that the hot water didn't away cooperate which I do agree with other reviews on this point, however, it only happened once during my stay. I noticed comments about damp made by other reviewers, however, there was none that I could see or smell while I was there but maybe I was lucky. Great hotel in general. I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The higher the better. Ask for a room on the back of the hotel so the noise from the road is minimi...

The hotel is in a great location, and is very convenient to get around Mumbai. As others have said, there seems to be a problem with damp, but not so you can see. We split our stay, three nights and then another three after a two night stay at a hill station . The first three nights our room was one of those that were supposed to be renovated, ( no carpet). But interior was old. The second room was just lovely, wooden floor, and modern bathroom and cleaner!
Overall a good hotel, they staff were pleasant and helpful.

The first thing you notice about this hotel is the smell...a combination of dampness and air freshener. The exterior of the buidling leaves a lot to be desired although it seems like they are renovating it.
The rooms are OK although the carpet in my room was stained and the hot water was sometimes hot and sometimes not. The food was very average, luckily there is a very nice Italian restaurant across the road.
I will look elsewhere when I next go to Mumbai.

I stayed for 5 days in this hotel and over all experience was good. Just come out of Hotel and you can feel pleasure of Marine Drive, evening you can go for dinner and shopping at Colaba where you can find long list of popular restaurants. Staff is good and hotel is very neat and clean, rooms are good and spacious. All in all good hotel to stay in Heart of Mumbai.

Visited Mumbai 18-20 Aug 2012, with wife and 2.5 years old daughter. Wanted to explore South Mumbai, hence preferred hotel there, especially considering daughters nap timings. Read reviews about this hotel, some good, some OK, thought of trying it out.

Booked tickets online and got a 20% discount (No Refund), and I personally found the deal a real good bargain considering the location, hospitality and sevice offered.

Check-In was smooth. Had buffet in one of their restaurants, food and variety was good. In one of the reviews, the reviewer mentioned about poor crockery etc.fortunately didnt come across anything like that. Maybe they are following these review comments and improvising!

The breakfast had good variety, but there is a scope for improvement there, especially for South Indian menu, it didnt taste that great.

The service offered was quick and excellent. Had carried daughter specific food, which was cooked well as per wife's instructions through out our stay.

Rooms were cozy and comfortable. Unfortunately the revolving restaurant on roof top is non-operational. Wished could capture Queens Necklace from up there. Hope its up and running during our next visit there.

Overall a very good experience.
