Average.

The Cleanliness of the rooms and toilets need to be improved. They charge an amount of £ 5.00 per room for storing luggage on the day of check-out.This is not good as no hotel in any corner of the world charges for storage for few hours. This is ridiculous.

DON'T STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!

My wife and I spent the last weekend in London and we were at the Ambassadors Hotel from 13.07 to 15.07.2012. I made the reservation through the HotelClube website. Every time we go to Europe we try to get some time to visit London, because we love this city. So, this was not our first time in England, but it was our first time at Ambassadors Hotel and probably it was the last one. And we have some reasons for that: 1) the breakfast was not included and the price is expensive. 2) it is necessary to pay for an Internet Access. 3) it is necessary to pay if we need to leave the luggages at the hotel after the check-out. This is the first time I encountered this kind of absurd situation. 4) our room was very small and the bed was uncomfortable. We have been stayed in many hotels in which the prices were cheaper and we had free Internet Access and we had never to pay for leaving our luggages after the check-out. And there was another problem: at Saturday night the elevator was out of service. So we had to go up to the third floor through the stairs. Sunday morning when we leave the bedroom we discovered that the elevator was still out of service. Can you imagine this situation for elderly people? As you can see, we are very unsatisfied with Ambassadors Hotel and we hope we will not stay in this hotel in the future, even if we have to pay for a more expensive hotel. My relatives and friends are asking us about our weekend in London and all we have to say them is: our stay in London could be excellent if was not for the Abassadors Hotel.

For the price and expecting much

For the price and expecting much less, I was very impressed. Turns out no singles have a bath, which I prefer above all given my poor balance, but reception offered me a double with a bath for no extra price though I offered to pay the difference. There were many anecdotes, but nothing serious against the hotel. The room I received in the end was very clean, good sized by London standards for the price, firm bed (a joy), bathroom well appointed with a deep bath, soft towels, and the expected amenities, sometimes lacking in hotels of the same level in that area. I will return.

Room was in basement with no central

Room was in basement with no central heating although 2 portable electrical heaters were provided. Large bathroom, some complimentary toiletries not replaced. Mould in bathroom. Had to request hairdryer although listed on web page for each room. Humming sound from boiler noticeable. TV had no buttons with which to change channels. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Location close to underground, shops, pubs and restaurants.

Despite the size of the rooms, a little bijou, everything needed was there and I thought the pricing was good for the location. Wouldn't hesitate to use it again.
