Scandic Ambassadeur Drammen4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stayed at the Scandic Ambassadeur Drammen (Jan 2018 - Room No. 1288) and here is my review: 1. The aspect of CLEANLINESS is sort of TOTALLY FORGOTTEN at this hotel. The carpet looks newly laid, but is dusty and does not seem to be properly vacuum cleaned, both inside the room and in the corridor. (Photo attached) 2. I found an empty soft drink plastic bottle next the sofa in my room, which was a left over from some previous customer. (Photo attached). This was surprising since I had seen a similar picture from another reviewer and had expected that Scandic would have learned some lessons from that. 3. Cobweb inside the room that's not been cleaned and not noticed (photo attached) 4. A lot of dust at places like electrical switch points, heater etc (photo attached) 5. A lot of dust on the hair dryer in the bathroom (photo attached) 6. Too many stains on the wash-basin and on the shower glass separation in the bathroom. No proper care taken to clean it (photo attached) 7. The cutlery (knife and fork) at the restaurant also lack cleanliness (photo attached). With a lot of stains. 8. Last but very important, the heating and sound insulation in the room was totally a disaster. Though the heater was on max, it was very cold inside the room. Regarding sound, the room is a corner one facing the train station and just below the room was a bus terminal. Everything down in the street could be heard loudly as if all windows were kept wide open. OVERALL A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE
I was booked for two nights on a business trip. I asked for an above average room in the first place. The general impression is that the hotel is renovated but the room and corridor layout is unchanged. On the way to the room there were many sheets/towels trolleys blocking the already small way. The first suggested room was small and very smelly so I backed out to the reception and asked for another suggestion. The second room offered was in the annex. This was slightly better youth hostel still: Cold, old and with draft from the window. Back to the reception again; they offered an upgrade to a suite with reduced coasts. This room was one king size bed and two dormitory bunk beds. Very cheap furniture, only towels for one person and no extras offered in the suite. In all three rooms (ink the suite) where NO coffee/tea-making facilities. Regarding the breakfast: This is good and a nice offer. The drawback here is that it is only opening at 0630. This was too late for me (and several other people). I was waiting with about 15 other persons at the first morning at 0625. They are opening the breakfast area at 0630 sharp!! The other morning I couldn’t make it at all. One minor think is that they have a big advertisement in the elevator regarding a smoothie the hotel has won a price with, and that you shall try it at the breakfast buffet. This smoothie was NOT served at all! This hotel is not cheap either. There is no attitude for quality improvement visible from my point of view.
Had late arrival and a early bird check out. As we checked in we was told we had been upgraded from our booked master suite to a larger suite. Spacious room with two separate sleeping compartments for us and our kids (sofa bed). The bathroom was almost claustrophobic, very tiny. The room had two TV`s, hairdryer and a tea maker. Nice view facing this side of the city. A bit of a hunting game finding the room, several signs showed the same rooms. Found it on our 3. attempt. The room was on the 4th floor, we had to use the stairs between 3rd and 4th floor, the elvator on this side of the hotel didn`t go longer up. Okay, had so little luggage to carry. It was close walking distance to the main city centre (you just cross the bridge) and to the train station, busses and more. Had our car parked in the garage, fee NOK 170 (for 24 hrs). The breakfast was great, it had it all. Even good choices for guests with allergies. Didn't get to see much more, we almost just checked in - headed out for a quick meal, got in bed, up early in the morning, had some breakfast before checking out and leave for our next location. The hotel itself was nice, appeared to have been "recently" renovated. Recommended hotel for short visit. I will stay there again.
I stayed 4 nights this hotel, my room was very small, with single bed, the only thing that i like this hotel is location, its near Drammen Train station, otherthen that i will not recomended you to stay there!
Scandic Ambassadeur Drammen has a good location, right next to the railway and centrally located in the city. The hotel has a beautiful lobby and reception at the front desk was friendly. The room was small but there is what you need, the bed is big and good so you get a good night's sleep. The bathroom has what you need, and the cleaning generally seems to be OK, but how can you forget a bottle in the middle of the floor. The only appeal from my side regarding the room is that I think there is a bad lighting, and they should upgrade the TV, 11 channels are available and 4 of them doesn’t work. The breakfast was excellent, here is all you could wish and an excellent coffee, so you get a good start to the day. The hotel is absolutely recommendable
Very convenient location, 2 minutes walking distance from the train station. Rooms are small like any hotel in Scandinavian hotels. The breakfast is amazing. After a nice breakfast you can easily skip the lunch. The staff are very friendly. Very interesting restaurants on the other side of the bridge. And the good thing is that the price of the rooms is really reasonable.
I visited Drammen for Business. The hotel staff was friendly and the breakfast was nice. The room was a bit small, but just fine for one night. The location right next to the train station is convenient, restaurants are a short walk away.
Very good located hotel just close to the railway station and in the centre of the city. The rooms are small but in good shape. At ground floor there is a nice bar and the breakfast was really good. Quick check-in and out.
The location was very central, just a few minutts walk from the train stadion. Comfortable bed, great breakfast with something for everybody. I will choose this hotel for sure the next time I visit Drammen.
not much choice in hotels here and this hotel is not the worst i've ever visited but not the best either. when you are disabled make sure you are not on the fourth floor because the elevator does not go that far. however i would like to point out that this was by far the best breakfast experience i've ever had. there was a choice for everyone: vegan, vegetarian, yoghurt lover, bread eaters or the american/english way w/ sausages, potatoes etcetera.
