Stayed five nights in this hotel with a group. The room with balcony was spacious and well appointed. The decor was attractive and well maintained and the limestone bathroom was beautiful. There were tables and chairs near the lobby and outside which meant that others in the group could hook up with the others and have a drink without making formal arrangements. The hotel was a 20 minute walk to the old city or it is easy to catch the light rail 5 minutes away by buying a ticket on the stop;7 sheckles for as far as you want to go on a single trip. It can take you right up to the market whichis highly recommended.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We were on an organised trip and stayed for 7 nights.
Initial impression was not good as my room was not ready and I had had a long day and it was nearly 6pm. After I was sent to my room I haste wrong key and so tired and weary I went and hAd this rectified. After a rest and a hot shower which was very nice I went down for dinner. Very nice.
On returning to my room and on closed inspection the en- suite was dusty and then I noter some black ants.".........and that on he fourth floor.
Any way despite this had a great nights sleep and breakfast was good.
The above sort of coloured my first impressions but as the days went by none of the problems recurred another ants just went away.
All in all a great stay with helpful and friendly staff and high standards of food.

The Ambassador is in a quiet area of Jerusalem not far from the old city and near to a tram stop. The hotel is quite modern and all areas clean and good quality. Rooms are quite large and comfortable but did not have the most efficient air conditioning, some have balconies with views of city, The hotel has a mix of Holy Land tour groups and business people. Food for groups is buffet style and offers plenty of choice at breakfast and dinner. There is a pleasant terrace area for relaxing in the evening.
The Hotel is well run and efficient and provides a good base for touring around Jerusalem.

I have stayed in 3 different hotels in Jerusalem. The Ambassador is my favorite. The rooms are quite large. Very clean. Lots of choices for breakfast. Helpful, friendly staff. Location is in a residential area, but not too far from Old City. Great place.

We stayed here for 3 nights. We soon realised that the focus of this hotel is on tour groups. Because of this the small public areas could be crowded and noisy. Breakfast was fair, service poor. Many people helping themselves to hot water etc rather than wait. Again busy due to volume of people at set times. We ate in the small restaurant in the evening which was a better experience. Food was good with generous portions. Our room was very basic and fairly clean. Bed not comfortable as needed new mattress. We found the hotel a bit too far out fir us although the tram was a short walk and easy to use. The hotel needs updating. We would not return to this hotel.

I had the pleasure of spending 5 nights at this lovely hotel in East Jerusalem. The hotel is ideally located close to the Old City and offers spacious rooms at reasonable prices. However, the best feature of this hotel by far is the friendly and incredibly helpful staff particularly the reservations manager, Juma Hamdan, Josephine and Ranjana.
