This hotel is situated in a quiet street, not too far from all kind of attractions. The rooms are okay, the breakfast middle of the road and the service fine. The restaurant in the glass cupola on top of the building is a nice extra with beautiful views over the city.

A classic, clean, no thrills hotel in Saint Petersburg. Nice spacious, warm rooms with all the appropriate amenities. Big clean bathroom. The breakfast was grand and rich, served on the top floor of the hotel offering a magnificent view of the City. The srvice was typical Russian (average). I stayed in room 336.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. You really don't get what you pay for. The rooms are so old fashioned with scratches in the wooden furniture everywhere. I didn't have breakfast included so cannot comment on it. But the worst thing about this hotel are the 'leisure facilities'. I've never heard of a hotel that boasts about it's pool... More

Hotel room is spacious and suited our purposes, although it would be nice if the heating could be turned down. A notice states that in winter the temperature and air conditioning cannot be reduced below 21C - not an ideal situation if you don't like the heat. The main problem is on the catering side.

We've had a wonderful day at the Ambassador. Our friends married on top of the Helipad. That gave such a wonderful view over Saint Petersburg. The service was good just like the food. If you want to have a beer, take your time because that will take a while.

The rooms are modern and every bit as good as western equivalents with all the facilities a traveller needs. It was also well maintained and everything worked.
