Ambasciatori Palace
Ranked #160 of 252 Hotels in Jesolo
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Just come back from 7 days at the Ambasciatori and was a bit worried having read the reviews. However I needn't have been. The hotel is, as mentioned by other reviewers a bit past its heyday but it is spotlessly clean and the staff and very friendly and helpful and it's location is excellent. We asked for a high floor to try to minimise the noise from the street/bin emptying that takes place every morning and were given the top floor at the front (street facing) side of the hotel. The rooms this side (ending 15,16,17,18,19,20) are very small and it is well worth paying the extra 10 euros per night for a room at the back with seaview as they are much bigger. If you can get rooms ending 06 or 07 as they are the biggest of them all.

The rooms are basic but comfrotable with a free safe which meant my mind was at rest and that our valuables were protected. The shower in our original room (519) was excellent but the shower in the big room (206) wasnt up to much but hey you cant have it all!

Now on to the food. I didnt expect much as people had been quite negative about it in the reviews but i have to say it was excellent: hot, fresh, plentiful and varied, so unless everyone else on Trip Advisor eats at The Ivy every night you should be happy with the standard. However because people read trip Advisor they think they need to get to the buffet early or it will all be gone, and it now seems to have become a self fulfilling prophecy and everyone arrives on the dot and takes their starters, mains and desserts at the same time. Really if everybody was sensible and not greedy nobody would need to rush. I would say be sensible, there is enough for everyone, but dont turn up more than a quarter of an hour late!

The beach is beautiful golden sand and spotlessly clean, as is the water. The snack hut nearest to the hotel is reasonably priced (4 euros for delicious hamburger, 3 euros for a lovely cheese and ham toastie) and the pizza takeaway round the corner is 4.50 euros for a margarita which did us for lunch.

There are plently of shops/bars/restaurants/entertainment in the high street and a plaza with concerts most nights (singers/bands etc) so you should never be bored in Jesolo.

Venice was overcrowded as it was peak season, so we didnt get to see much and its too hot (for us anyway as partner is awaiting an operation on his legs)) to want to spend a day walking round and queuing up for things, so ashamed to say we only spent 2 hours there before we had had enough and went home.The bus to the port took 45 mins instead of 30 which meant we missed the connection for the boat and had to wait another 30 mins, then the boat took 35 mins to get to venice. We then had tickets for the Vaporetto which took s round the Grand canal and under the Rialton bridge and then we headed home. For us then it was the wrong time to go in many ways and we may go back in low season and stay for a couple of days to give ourselves enough time to do it justice.,

All in all then a great holiday so don pay too much attention to the reviews of this hotel, it was basic but comfortable and the staff and food and location made it a great holiday.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Pay extra for sea views as they are twice as big as the other rooms, and if you can get rooms ending...

Fabio the manager of the Ambasciatori Palace, welcomed us on the steps of the hotel, which was a nice gesture

The Thomson hotel meeting at 6:30 pm, so headed down for this, Lara the hotel rep was taking the meeting, such a lovely girl, from Woking, she went through the usual gav, excursions, places to visit, history of the town, and she has only been in the resort for 2 months

Excursions can be done with Thomson or on own to Venice for the day, you catch the bus from Lido Jesolo and head to Punta Sabbionni, return fare €4.50; from the port of Punta Sabbionni you would catch the ferry to take you to Venice, and your best to buy a 12 hour pass for €18, which allows you to use all the ferry that go around Venice, had alovely day round venice, one day not enough to go round venice

Dinner was always at 07:30 at night time, and was always a mad rush; if down early there plenty of chioce to choose from, starting with the salad bar: Lettuce, Cucumber, Celery, Radish, Red Onions, White Onions, Spring Onions, Pickled Onions, and so on. Hot food as a starter, consisted of pasta, or soup; your pasta dishes through out your stay would change night by night, one night spaghetti with tomato sauce, with peas and pork, and I can tell this was very tasty, a very creamy lasagne dish, macaroni serve win a creamy sauce with peas, onions, and egg .

The main courses, so much to choose from, a number of grilled meats; chicken, pork, beef, veal, turkey, and all cooked right in front of you. Other meat dishes were cooked in the kitchen; Beef rolls with ham peas and onions, served in a creamy sauce, Veal stew, served in a white wine sauce, Beef stew, served in a red wine, with tomatoes sauce, Beef stroganoff, Beef chops served with a spicy tomato sauce, Pork chops, and Chicken breasts

A variety of vegetables to go with your main course: Peas with onions, Carrots, Carrots in a cheese sauce, Cauliflower, with or with out cheese, Broccoli, and potatoes in a number of forms: chips, cream potatoes, roast, roast potatoes with tomatoe sauce

After you have finished your starters and main course, you now have to make room for your deserts: chocolate cake, apple sponge, cream cakes, marzipan sponge cake, along with the cake you could have some fruit or ice cream

Now the waiter for my table was called Azziario, now he speaks English very fluently, so good, thought he was from England, but when found out, he wasn’t, he was praised for speaking such good English, he was in his early 20’s, and very good looking

There was another waiter, an older one, who has been there for a number of years, and every time I see him, he reminds me of Manuel from faulty tower, as he is always heard saying….”I SPEAK VERY GOOD ENGLISH

The 3 girls on the reception desk where very helpful, and all spoke good English, and all 3 have been with the hotel for more than 3 years, You could ask them, where the best place to eat for lunch, and most time they would recommend the English put called the black Cat, which was just round the corner form the hotel

The hotel has a number of bike which you can use free of charge, but it is best to get your bike early in the morning, as come round 10am, there all out, and there plenty of places to cycle to, as most of Jesolo and surrounding areas are covered by cycle paths, and even cycling on the roads is save,

The main road in Jesolo, is blocked of to traffic from 8pm, but as a cyclist you can still cycle on this road, but it becomes a night mare to cycle on, as you have to content with the predestines, going and coming, you can have 10 cyclist riding back to back of each other, and as a pedestrian you have to be very careful when stepping on to the road, most time the cyclist rings his bell, to move the pedestrian,

One thing I would like to praise about the receptionist, was when going home, Thu night before dinner went to reception to pay my bill, now I had a guess as how much my tab should be, should be around €8, and this was for 2 bottles of coke, but when the girl pull out my room tab, there were two additional tabs

Now I questioned these, telling her there not mine, and looke like each tab came might have come to around €20, so €40 in total, each tab consisted of 4 beers, 2 wines, 3 mixers, now I don’t know what had happened. Has there been a dishonest holiday maker, who thought, I just place my tab on this room number, now I always thought you had to show you key to the waiter, to allow you to have room tab

Now good on the receptionist, she dint charge me for these drinks, but took it up with the waiter, who seem to be getting a ticking of, now has he been dishonest himself, or made a mistake in writing down the room number, I will never know

Room Tip: Fabio seem to be willing to change a room, if your not happy with what you have, so if you want a ch...

Just returned from this hotel. Was apprehensive after reading some reviews. It was excellent, lovely food, great selection at dinner and always very hot. The staff were kind and friendly and wouldn't have got better service in a five star hotel. Mentioned our air con was not that cold and the manager immediately came to the room and then sent an engineer the next morning. He offered to change our room also, but we declined as we only had a few more days to go and I expect it wasn't working at its best as it was so terribly hot in jesolo. The hotel was spotlessly clean and comfortable. No complaints, loved it and would return. Also so many people we met had been there year after year. Thank you again to all the staff at the hotel for being so efficient and making us so welcome.

We chose this hotel as a base for exploring Venice and the surrounding area. On arrival we waited to be allocated our room and stood behind a couple who had stayed here before, they did not want the room they were allocated so the girl at reception crossed out their name and swapped their room for ours, which we found a little irritating.
Our room (the one we ended up with) was average, slightly old fashioned, yet clean. There were a lot of ants on the balcony which quite often marched through the room. The food in the Hotel was ok, the breakfast selection was actually pretty good. The evening meals however were like a school canteen with a mismatch of food where latecomers were left with plenty of food that no-one else wanted. Anything that looked good was gone in 60 seconds.
I went with my wife in mid May, just before the season gets into swing, it is pretty easy to get a 24hr travel ticket from and tabaccaio shop with which you can catch any bus (approx 35mins) and boat to get to Venice and the Islands. We were told that we would experience hours of queuing but maybe due to the time of year didn't queue any where. From the bus station (about 15-20 mins walk away) you can get a bus to Treviso which is a really nice town.

Room Tip: Get off the coach first and complain if you have been allocated a room you didnt want. It worked for...

We stayed in this hotel from the 15-22nd June 2012 and what a week it was. There was a heat wave 106F.... air con was brilliant in the room. Room was small but always clean, fresh towels everyday. There was a variety of food to choose from so that was excellent. Staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel is facing the beach so try and get a room on the top floor, room 507 has been recommended from other holiday makers. This was my first trip to Italy so did not realise there would be no kettle in the room, so I would take a travel kettle to Italy next time. Mattresses rather hard, which was a problem for my friend but not me. If you stay here book a trip to Venice, that was an unforgettable trip. The trip cost me 51 euros with Thomsons, if you make your own way there it will only cost 14 euros return.... but you do get a guided tour with Thomsons. There is a supermarket where you can buy 12 litres of water for 1 euro 20. Turn right on leaving hotel, then left, straight down over 2 streets until you come to main road where bus stops are, turn left and it is on the right hand side. Excellent wine for 1 euro. We paid 20 euros for a bottle of Preseco in the hotel, it is only 5 euros from this supermarket. Free bike hire and free sunbeds to use on this private beach. Remember to bring a towel for pool and beach as this is not supplied by hotel. I had a massage on the beach and in the hotel grounds which were excellent. But these masseuse do tend to keep returning asking you to have another one. Our room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the road... but what a sun trap on the balcony late afternoon and evening. This hotel is dated but it is clean, but I will be returning. Good hotel and location. 3 stars.

Room Tip: Book a room over looking the sea for outstanding views. Top floor (room 507) above the tree tops. 5t...

Just returned from a week at this hotel and could not fault it. The staff were excellent, The rooms were kept spotlessly clean and although the rooms were a little on the small size everything needed was there. (air conditioning, safe in the room and a fridge was all included in the price) The location was perfect right on the beach. The only thing that was a bit negative is that im disabled and i found the steps a little hard going but for a fit person they would be no problem. The food was excellent and plenty to choose from. Even the fussiest of people could find plenty to eat.

I would recomend this hotel and we will most probably be visiting again next year.
