Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

The only good points about this hotel are its location in proximity to Olympia - it's still a mile away and it's relatively low price. My room (102) was inordinately noisy with what seemed like a plant room next door. A bottle of cheap red and moving the bed so I was in a node meant I had a reasonable night but it could have been quite intolerable. Watch out for the illegal notices about charging for smoking or hanging clothes on the TV - shades of basil faulty. Would avoid it on future occassions and I suggest you do.

A semi modern hotel ideal for short stays. Don't expect any frills and the rooms are small. However it is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast (continental) is good and it is a five minute walk from Glouster rd tube station connecting you with the whole of London.

Not at all good value for money. They charge you a pound for an hour of internet and it can only be used in one device. The rooms look really cheap for 80 pound hotel room in south kensington. The bathrooms look quite run down as well.

Pretty much as the title says. Clean but basic. Cheap for Kensington during the Easter holidays, 83 for a double room. Service ok. Only one lift to upper floors. Get what you pay for. Close to Gloucester Rd tube. 5 mins walk.

I've stayed in the Ambassadors Hotel a few times. It's a short walk to Gloucester Road tube station (on the Picadilly line) and close to Earl's Court and some good pubs. Okay, it's not five-star but cheap and secure. You're in London folks, you don't want to be hanging around in your hotel.

I was originally booked in at the Jury's on Great Russell Street but they were over booked so they sent us here. When we went up to our original room, it was so tiny and dreary my husband said "absolutely not". I returned to the front desk and asked for their largest room. They upgraded me at a small cost to a triple which just meant there were three single beds shoved in this way and that. At least you could turn around in this bathroom. Lighting poor throughout and no amenities other than a nice bar off the lobby. Good location,(walking distance from Russel street tube station) nice staff but rooms were worn and not clean. There are far better choices, espeically for a 3 star hotel. I would never stay here again under any circumstances.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel are very noisy. If you stay try the back. There was a pool and fitne...

I booked a single room in this hotel while looking for an apartment here in London. The room was very small with poor illumination and the view outside the window was not nice. Internet was not free but quite expensive, and in my room the signal was low. It was hard to stay for more than one week.
