Over the past two years since I last visited, The Ambulance has gone down hill beyond recognition. Established originally to high standard by founder, Jim Lumsden and taken even higher by subsequent manager Michael Zeller, The Ambiance was a legendary...

Excellent staff nice and clean hotel. Location is very central as it is 2 minutes walk to main streets and seaside. Well equipped. We had three rooms. One of the room had problem with AC and the staff happily upgraded one room to studio room. It was excellent customer services.

Could not be a more convenient location. The staff makes everything easy. I've been staying here for years and still love it. Perfect for Boyztown, Pattaya, and Jomtien fun. Full service restaurant and bar open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks. Massage service available in your room or theirs. The penthouse rooms have a lovely private balcony on the top...

Staff pretend to be good they will not go pass any opportunity to cheat you. They will force you to pay extra by making some excuses (sorry didn't inform you before etc.) while checking out. Be aware of this. But who wants to be vigilant 24/7 from being cheated on a dream holiday.

We left after the second day as they had severe problems with the water system no water for washing, using the toilet and showering. With outside temperatures reaching 33oc it was essential you had a morning wash and normal bodily functions.

You are a masochist? You love to be treated as a worthless lowlife? Then The Ambiance is the perfect place for you. There was no warm water, but a few baby cockroaches.
