Convenient & Affordable Tourist Class Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 30, 2004

The Ambassador Bangkok was probably a "higher class" hotel than it currently is some years ago. Despite its age, it has a grand reception area, and large built-up areas which included convention halls, its own attached shopping malls (although quite vacant) and even its own bird park! Most important of all, it has a very friendly bunch of service staff. All the staff which I had encountered during my stay, whether from reception or housekeeping were helpful and approachable.

That being said, I still must emphasis that due to the age of the hotel, one should stay in the slightly more expensive Tower Wing, as its room are newer. I had heard from fellow travellers that the rooms in the Main Wing were rather rundown. I had stayed with 2 other of my friends in a triple-sharing room of the Tower Wing when I was at Bangkok, and although the room was clean, it was obviously quite old and not very well-litted. Not a problem during the day as one side of the wall was a full height window. But at night, the electrical lightings could have been better.

My room was nevertheless spacious and a more than comfortable place to retire to every night.

My friends and I got the room via the internet and paid US$54 each night for our triple-sharing room in the Tower Wing, inclusive of breakfast for all 3 of us.

The included breakfast was good, consisting of a good spread of American breakfast items like ham and toast, among local delights such as fried noodles and porridge. Bacon strips were however only available during weekends.

Unique Quality: The best features of the hotel are its fantastic location and recognition.

As I had mentioned earlier, it was probably a "higher class" and better known hotel before, and also due to its being around for a while already, almost every local (and most important the taxi drivers) know of its location once you mention "Ambassador Hotel".

Being located in Sukhumvit area and within the famous "Nana Entertainment Area", access to both orthodox and "alternative" entertainments are just as easy. And my favourite part was that the Nana BTS Station was only 5 minutes away and a 7-Eleven just a minute away!

Directions: Near the Nana area, and very near the Nana BTS

Stayed at Ambassador Hotel for 5 nights. This hotel is quite famous with tourists. It is very convenient for those who plan to travel by Bangkok Train System (BTS) as a station is near by, the Nana Station.

Very good spread of American Breakfast. For 1,320 Baht a night, it is value for money. I stayed at the newer Tower Wing.

Also, many Indian restaurants near by.

Unique Quality: It has a pool which was not crowded. And it has a hugh collection of birds. Like a mini bird park within this hotel. Hotel is within a big compound with Plaza, shops, convention centre. etc.

Hotel with great location

Reach the hotel at night. The reception is somewhat useless. Waited for 30 minutes to get our key under "nothing went wrong" situation.
Service is kinda slow. We have to made 4 phone calls to get a tea spoon. And guess what? The tea spoon never reach our room eventually.

Unique Quality: Room big, a bit old, clean. Near to BTS skytrain Nana station, pubs. Good value for money. US$38

Directions: Nana station.

The Ambassador is another hotel in the Nana area of Sukhumvit. Location is great because it's just a short walk to lots of bars and restaurants and also to Nana BTS station. When the new subway opens in July/August 2004 it will also be nearby at the junction of Sukhumvit and Asoke.The rooms are comfortable and a reasonable size - but just starting to show their age a little, at least in the main block - don't know about the slightly more expensive Tower block. Breakfast is taken in the restuarant across the drive from main entrance and has a nice outside courtyard, but the food is only average.

Unique Quality: Good location.
The large open area between the Hotel and Sukhumvit has a large selection of traditional Thai massage and foot massage parlours along one side. I definitely got to like having a foot massage after a days sightseeing.
Last time I was in the area the open area at the front of the hotel was being redeveloped as a condo building so all the massage shops and internet cafes had closed down

Nice hotel

Nice Hotel, in one of the best areas of Bangkok, Sukomvit Road. its one of the Central areas and close to lots of the tourist places. Few minuts from Siam Square and close to most places. You have the upper train (the station that is by the hotel is Nana Station), busses, taxi's and ofcours the took took.
Around 40 US$, depends on the time of the year and the how long you stay (they will low the price if you'll stay for a long time)
