Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I stay at the Ambassador every time I visit from the US, and have never been disappointed. Whatever the hotel lacks in outside glamour it compensates in efficiency and convenience. It is very clean and neat. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are quiet. Location is great - 3 min walk from a metro/subway station and 20 min walk from Nevsky prospect. This year, breakfast was somewhat a disappointment; but this may be due to the COVID related issues. Lunch was good though. My only grudge is the fact that there are no studio rooms with a spectacular view on the dome of the St. Isaak's Cathedral, so one has to make a choice between the room space and the view. Otherwise - a great place to stay in SPb.

RUDE!
I’ve booked room with breakfast and since I had very limited time I go to breakfast and make myself coffee, I smell it and only want us to drink it - the boy comes and get coffee out of my hands, telling I didn’t pay for beeakfast😳 really?! So I go down to Front desk and they verify I paid for it, but I already have no time left😳 VERY RUDE! The rooms don’t get locked from inside and anybody from hotel stuff can get in while you sleep. UNSAFE and RUDE STUFF! Won’t ever stay there again, even through hotel looked good on photos😔
