  • The place was clean overall, but the bathrooms had a lingering off-putting scent. Closing…

    Some of the staff were happy to help! The room hygiene was not good

  • 6.0.Good

    Convenient location and comfortable bed. Staff courtesy and restaurant menu are below the standard the hotel can be. Every guest seems to be taken for granted to be a transit passenger sent by an airline - annoying when one is not and bad deal to those who are.

    I made the reservation for my wife who was travelling alone. When she reported at the check- in the staff at the reception told her there was no reservation for her even though she showed them her reservation itinerary . After long argument they offered her a room fresh with paint which is situated in the part of the hotel that is under construction.

    Respectful Guest@Trash Pin citywide

    Ambassador Hotel was outstanding, it’s real luxurious hotel 🏨 with very friendly& cheerful 😀 staff. Once you step to the room, you feel your self as respectful person in the middle of trash bin 🗑 city of Addis. It’s highly recommended for business men, maybe it’s the only real 4 stars ⭐️ hotel@ Addis Ababa
