Perfect location

Stayed here for a week during xmas time. We had a partial city view room with fully equipped kitchen and verandah. Room was clean on arrival. Had 2 double beds, nice sized tv with cable, table and chair seating, large BIW with safe inside and room to hang clothes. Location is excellent. Coffee and snack bar downstairs aswell as convenience store next door. 5 min stroll to main waikiki strip and beach. 2 min to restaurants. abc store across the street. Staff are polite and helpful and housekeeping daily. Shuttle service to all main attractions from hotel lobby. 24hr gym, laundry and ice available.They have a pool on 2nd floor, the only downside is it closes at 7pm which i think could be extended. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Great location

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel for 3 nights. We rode the bikes to the beach for a swim, tried the ham and egg croissant and pineapple cream smoothie from the store outside the entrance for breakfast. The staff are super helpful and friendly. The beds were super comfy too. Overall a great location for the price.

The rooms were nothing like shown on internet

The rooms smelled really bad, we were lucky to get accommodation at the Holliday Inn, cancelled our booking with Ambassodor paid for the night though we did not stay and moved to the holiday inn which was excellent,

Old hotel with old furnishings

Pros: Very little
Cons: Training of all staff about where rooms are situated. Updating room decor and quieter facilities.
Location: Location was ok. Not far to walk to catch a bus to Ala Moana shops. About 10 minute walk to the beach.
As we arrived early (7am) we were told to come back at 3pm, which we did and booked in. Given room no etc we took the lift to our floor only to find out we were in another tower. When we approached the front desk neither staff member knew exactly how to access that tower. Twice we were locked out of our room as the battery in the door apparently went flat (within 3 days). It was great it had a laundry, however when we went to do washing only 1 machine was operating which was booked up for several hours. Room was old, noisy air conditioner and minimal facilities in kitchenette. Construction was going on nearby so there was a lot of noise from that as well.
