Very dirty rooms toilets dinning room floors

This hotel is good but left to rot left uncared for. Lamp sheds are very very dirty never been cleaned in decades of years. Do serious cleaning on this hotel please. The bathrooms are just full of dirty. You should charge $20-------$30/night B&B for current condition of hotel I feel cheated maybe a refund as your photos were deceiving

Hotel Ambassadeur — bring good earplugs

Two issues: noise and the elevator. First, the hotel adjacent to a busy bus terminal, which was noisy virtually the whole night. The one person in our party of nine who slept well routinely sleeps with earplugs. Second, the elevator got stuck between floors and we had to be rescued. To be fair, we had been warned at the front desk not to ride with more than four. However, the plaque inside the elevator gave a weight limit that should have accommodated eight of us. We should have listened to the advice from the front desk. Unless you are a very sound sleeper or comfortable with effective earplugs, exercise caution.


Sufficiente per una sosta di lavoro

Arredamento vetusto. Rumorosità (per mancanza di vetri doppi), dovuta alla posizione centrale dell'hotel, da condizionare con infissi adeguati Servizio igienico con rubinetteria inefficiente, lavabo semi-otturato, mancanza di asciugamani (presenza solo asciugatoio grande#, in dotazione solo piccola saponetta, mancanza #in bagno) di presa elettrica per rasoio elettrico e phone. Valido il collegamento internet. Impianto aria condizionata efficiente. Prezzo economico. Gentilezza del personale

Pros: Discreto ed economico il ristorante

Cons: il bagno

Hotel Ambassadeur, Nairobi - be careful

My experience with this hotel wasn't that great. Especially, they didn't find my pre-payment I did over Hotels.com and didn't seem to make much effort to clarify the issue. Also, the street noise and traffic pollution penetrated the rooms easily. some windows/balcony doors could not be properly closed.
