Hotel Ambassador is a mix between a hostel and a hotel really. There are shared bathrooms (which were always clean and accessible), simple decor, kitchen and lounge facilities and friendly staff. There were perks including free and fast wifi, good location, maps and advice from the staff and free to leave luggage for the day. There is no elevator and all the rooms are upstairs. We stayed one night and found this place perfect for our needs.


It was peaceful, quiet and so so clean! Yet still in a hip part of town. Perfect location too. I'd recommend my 20 year old brother to stay here and I'd also recommend my grandma to stay here. Staff was so friendly and always willing to help!

Good value for a very central location, close to everything. Granville Street is a party street, but the noise didn't bother me (I had a room facing the back, not the street itself) but most of the club are a couple of blocks away. The room and the shared bathrooms are clean, not hospital clean, but clean enough to me. There is a locker in the room, in which you can fit a small laptop. The Internet is pretty slow in the room though.
