Our first mistake was setting foot in this old filthy place for our 20th wedding anniversary night. There were so many signs that this joint was utterly dodgey but as it was late in the day and we had failed to book anywhere else, we stupidly STUPIDLY checked in. Muck on the entrance floor, (food and drink and who knows...

Disgusting and filthy first room. Moved to a second room and whilst slightly better, it was still a well and truly below average room. When we made a reasonable complaint about the conditions of the room and wanted a refund for the second night that we did not use, they would not give it to us. Do not go here...

Definitely an old building. Room smelled old and decor was old looking and definitely in need of some care and attention especially the carpet. Room was warm with no effective air con or fan. I wouldn't want to use hotel in hot summer. Was an experience and will not return.

Yes first impressions do count. My traveling partner wanted to walk down the street to see if we could find somewhere else to stay. As it was late, and we had only just arrived in Adelaide all i wanted to do was get to my room and sleep. Well to get to the rooms you had to go up an...

Very basic room, corridors smelled of cigarette smoke from the bar downstairs. Asked for twin beds, got double bed. On arrival had to pay for my 4-night stay in advance, plus $100 bond. They refused to accept AMEX despite having AMEX as an option on the Booking.com website. After the receptionist unable to make any concession, I asked to see...

Presents like a re-decorated doss-house. My room at the back was very noisy from the bar staff emptying bottles into the skip with regular frequency up till just after midnight. Garbage trucks then took over in the early hours. Tea-making area and 'wardrobe' crudely constructed out of badly painted chipboard. Didn't stay for breakfast - couldn't get out of there...

Lovely hotel with a history, with welcoming staff and quaint corridors all over the place! Very comfortable bed and functioning bathroom - I slept very well and enjoyed my continental breakfast by the fireplace in the old dining room.

Where can you get a room with double and single bed for under $100 in Adelaide. Ambassadors was charming and had very helpful staff. Loved the old world charm and proximity to venues and restaurants. Would highly recommend

I stayed in Ambassadors Hotel from 21st to 23rd September (3 nights). The hotel as great location. The room was nice, spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and attentive. In reception Bree was excellent helping with everything. Also Lucas and Brian in the bar. Thank you for your making my stay comfortable and pleasant.

After I booked my room online I checked Google Earth for directions and couldn't find the hotel. Nestled between two skyscrapers the hotel is almost invisible. The reception desk in the foyer had been abandoned mid-renovation so you checked in at the gaming area. I also discovered the ninety five year old lift doesn't reach the third floor and the...
