I was there for lunch, and also for an afternoon juice. Both times the service was excellent, as was the food. Fruit juices are fresh and the frozen cappuccino is excellent. They have private rooms for business lunches or dinners, as well as a nice garden with lots of space and privacy.

This hotel is a 2 minute drive from Hargeisa airport. There is little to see or do around the property. It is a 3 floor hotel and we were in room 111 for one night. There is adequate security all around the property with at least 7 guards with AK47s. We had one queen bed with mosquito netting above it....

Beyond the fact that this is a beautiful property, I want to point out that the staff is simply world class. First, I was coming from Djibouti and had issues with my Somaliland visa. I phoned up the evening before travel, and Guled went above and beyond to help ensure my visa was ready the next morning. Simply unheard of....

I've stayed at the Ambassador Hotel on several occasions now and it's a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Security it good, the food is good and the facilities are the best in the area. The team ensure you are looked after & catered for and the coffee shop, with the cake menu...

Ambassador Hotel Hargeisa is the best hotel in Hargeisa employed with friendly staff, customer oriented & attempt their all efforts to make your stay comfortable. I really like their villas, very much comfortable & ensure your privacy. Very clean & tidy.

Most Ambassador guests are aid or development workers attracted by its proximity to the airport, (five minutes) location (on a hill, cooler than town) and safety (several security agencies guard the place 24 hours). But its attractions as a quality hotel are illustrated by the number of Somalilanders using its lovely garden restauant and comfortable coffee lounge. The garden menu...

Stayed here expecting luxury and I wasn't disappointed. It was just like Captain Philips. The crew were very accommodating and I even managed to keep my fillings. I love this game! I am crazy. Lushhhhh.

This review relates to the restaurant only. Food is served either indoors or outdoors. The menu is pretty diverse and include several fish dishes. Unlike many other restaurants I've visited in Somaliland, the food in this establishment is freshly prepared (not heated up moments before serving), is of good standards and includes both local and international dishes. The level of...

Excellent business hotel with very high standards for Somaliland. Service is excellent, staff have great English. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Nice view. Close to airport. Excellent restaurant, best steak in town. Wifi works well. Breakfast could use some more variety although very fresh. The gym is also quite acceptable. Considering where you are, this is the safest and best...
