The Ambassador in St Petersburg was a pleasant surprise. The room was lovely with a large bathroom and we even had our own sitting room. Breakfast was served upstairs and the offering was extensive enough to cater for all tastes. We spent some time in the bar on the ground floor and watching sport on the TV which was entertaining. We came to St Petersburg on a 3 day excursion from Helsinki. I would be happy to stay at the Hotel Ambassador again.
The Ambassador Hotel is well situated and walkable distance from city centre The rooms were clean - well kept and the staff was smiling and friendly Always helpful and the information give great! The breakfasts were awesome and the view amazing from there! Some might think it slightly overpriced - but i slept comfortable and enjoyed great internet as well If i have a choice - i will go back!
Hotel is quite old. Rooms are very old and also hotel. It looks like forgotten Hotel. Breakfast is poor. Personal is also not smiley. Specially in main gate security even they do not answer you when you say hi. They are thinking that they are working in prison. Anyway WiFi connection is nice. Cleaning progress is good. But nothing special.
This hotel is now my favourite hotel in St Petersburg. It is not a very expensive hotel compared to what you are receiving, The staff in the hotel are super nice, helpful and smiling. The breakfast is great ( so is the view from the breakfast restaurant ) Beds where comfy and rooms nice and clean.
my first time experience. and not the last, i believe rooms are nothing particular, but good location very good breakfast - excellent - selection, service and the restaurant itself swimming pool helped me to recover after a busy day, thanks!
This hotel is centrally located in St Petersburg. The reception staf was quite efficient, but lacking smile. Rooms are basic level, but batroom dark and airconditioning non existing. Luckily you can open the window - if you happen to find the key from the drawer. We had a buffet dinner at the top floor restaurant; hardly have seen so depressed presentation of food. Starters were mediocre level Russian salads, charcuteries and fis, but the main courses were below any standards; poor meat stew, basic pasta bolognese and well over cooked fish. The breakfast in the same restaurant was in both morning basic fairly good level.
Build approx. 10 years ago, this is a very modern and nice hotel. Minus for the carpets in the rooms and NOT being able to adjust the temperature. Really modern interior, good breakfast / lunch buffet restaurant (9th floor - with a VIEW), Helpful staff everywhere, making our stay really pleasant. High quality wifi, nice lobby bar and a souvenir shop in the lobby. Recommendable!
I stayed here as part of a tour group and the hotel is ideal for that. Breakfast buffet is outstanding in selection and variety including fresh fruit and excellent bread and pastries - the fresh omelette is a real treat. The rooms and bedding were of a very good standard and having water coolers on each floor was very practical. Concierge was most helpful in arranging tickets for us and bar staff were excellent. Seeing senior managers walking around very positive! I liked practical things - like having a cash machine and souvenir shop in the lobby. A hotel more for groups however than a single traveller as it's a good 10/15 minute walk to the Nevsky Prospect but some good restaurants nearby.
Location is fine for visiting the main sites - 10 minutes walk to the underground, twenty to the river Neva. The hotel presents well, is clean and functional, but breakfast is not well managed, leading to shortages of crockery and dishes at busy times. Worst for us was the high charges for use of the pool after 11.00am, which meant we did not use it later in the day, when we really wanted to. Challenging the guest relations manager, we were told it was to avoid it becoming a 'frog pond'! On the plus side the reception and concierge staff were excellent.
In my travels I rarely write reviews. Once I return home and go about the normal routine of life, I rarely give thought to writing a review. It is only when a hotel stands out as something special that I make the time to write a review. Ambassador Hotel is one of those hotels. I have stayed at the Ambassador during four different visits to Saint Petersburg. Each visit was over a week with the last visit being December 29th through January 6th of this year. There are many things I like about the Ambassador but I will just mention the main reasons I stay here. First and foremost are the people who work here. Just as in any business, it is the people who truly make a business successful and the Ambassador Hotel has a great staff. From Victoria and Alexsey (sp?) at the reception desk who are both very professional and pleasant to the waiters, bartenders and frankly everyone else at the hotel, the staff stands out and makes a stay at the Ambassador an enjoyable one. I also stay because of the rooms. The rooms are well furnished, comfortable, very clean, and of decent size. I have always stayed in a standard room which has been more than adequate for myself as I travel alone. I am sure the higher end rooms are just as nice, if not nicer. The hotel's location is also convenient. It is within walking distance to most of the tourist attractions. Or if you do not feel like walking much, there is a metro station just a couple of blocks away. The metro fare is 45 rubles and the turnstiles take credit cards which is very convenient.
