Anyone Stayed At The Ambassador?

Recommended Posts

Mate, have you ever been in a hotel?

yes i have. mate.

from five star luxury in the worlds capitals to vermin infested shitholes in india and china and nepal where the only hotel in town was a shithole.

thats why when you called the ambassador a shithole i suspected you had no idea what you were talking about and you were just having a rant.

i can certainly recommend you many genuine shitholes , should you ever decide to visit say , kashmir or ladakh and want to see what a real shithole has to offer.

i am most comfortable in a clean room in a mid range hotel in the middle of a town , where i can get a reasonable meal in my room 24 hrs a day and with facilities to wash my clothes and have a swim. i dont mind if the dresser is scratched , or if the wardrobe door squeaks , it means someone else has made themselves at home in the place , and that makes me relax and feel easy.

i find five star luxury intimidating and i dont relax. the service can be a bit too intrusive. bowing and scraping makes me cringe. its all to fussy and false.

but i would take that anytime over a real shithole.

but the ambassador is certainly not a shithole.

The place is a tired shithole. I am disappointed that you, a resident, even condsidered staying there, you shoud have known better.

its a perfectly adequate mid range hotel , bang slap in the middle of sukhumvit.

its just what most out of bangkok thai residents would want.

its not the ritz , granted , but its a regular sort of hotel that doesn't try and intimidate its guests with grandeur.

its a decent gaff with no airs or graces. just what a hotel should be.

Mate, have you ever been in a hotel?

Obviously not to your high standard :D

I've stayed, eaten, drank in and visited some of the finest hotels and although nice it does'nt mean anything.

After my problem was sorted I enjoyed the Ambassador, For the cost it was good value.

There we are - a man who has been to good hotels and it was worth nothing.

Then, no wonder you have good words about that shithole. At any price, even for free it's not a hotel I would look at sideways.

Enjoy and look through the bare thread towels and tell that guy who pulled your wife that his place of employment is as good as any other.

I would remember your words "I've stayed, eaten, drank in and visited some of the finest hotels and although nice it does'nt mean anything." when I land to the Marriott on the river next week.

Would I miss the Amabassador? Would I ######.

Marriott, Mandarin etc etc :o How long do you stay there for?

I stay in a hotel for 1 night every time I go to the embassy or on a night out, I'm not going to waste 4-5k a night to have other guests who think they're more important look down their noses at us, its BS.

I could stay there if I wanted but I don't, its pointless for the time i'm going to spend there.

On holiday..well thats different.

The other thing you seem to be forgetting is that not all people have a wide choice of wear to stay, especially if they don't have the budget or know the city.

The best hotel in Bkk is Uncle Rey's guesthouse , at the side road next to the NEP.

After staying there all hotels are nice................ :o

Marriott, Mandarin

:D

i think i would prefer my kashmiri shithole to one of those plasticky look alike macdonalds type hotel chains.

no character.

at least the ambassador has got some character that lifts it above the boring blandness of those awful chain hotels. its like receiving an anaesthetic as soon as you enter one of those places.

i was right

you no nothing about hotels.

Have I stayed there? Certainly not and never will.

Then, how can I talk about it?

A gf's friend from her village had a shop in that cluster of shops next door that got flooded or burned down 3 years ago, can' remember. There is a construction site now.

She was staying at the Ambassador with another 2 shop owners, 30m from their work. Went there, what a sad place the "hotel" was.

Have they renovated in last 3 years? No? Than it's a dump as it was then.

They have a tower too, don't know what it is like but the core is on the ground, can't be that much different, at least their service and biz practices.

I would say something about 5* hotels but it can't be on the same page where the Ambassador is being talked about.

A sex tourist cheap hotel, that's what it was probably built to do serve for , like the Nana hotel.

Come from Khao Sarn road dormitories, it may look like a palace.

So its basically your own opinion then although a bit narrow minded.

Just to fill you in on sex tourist hotels, my mates from Iraq come here every 2 months for 3 weeks so as they can shag their <deleted> off, Where do they stay?

Marriott, Plaza Athenee, Landmark etc :o

Does that mean that YOU stay in sex tourist hotels?

Ps I've stayed in the Marriott Resort BKK and the Siam intercontinental before it was flattened and they are all guilty.

Good point Dave.

Think to mut, I think you think too mut already but here's a thought:

With all your ranting about sex tourists, you've perhaps overlooked a key point with distinguishes The Ambassador from The two Marriott hotels and the Landmark. :o

The Ambassador wanted to charge our friend Dave a joiner fee of 500 baht, whereas you could march half a dozen of NEP's finest into the reception of any of the luxury hotels in this thread and the reception won't bat an eyelid. Very friendly to your average sex tourist, ler?

If you are going to play the comparison game, try a different angle because the sex tourist line is flawed. Didn't think too mut there eh?

Comparisons aren't the point anyway. Noone could deny that the Marriott is better than the Ambassador. I'm sure the General Manager of the Ambassador agrees with you. But that doesn't make The Ambassador a s***hole.

very good location, spacious and clean rooms, nice pool, staff was very friendly, with exception the hostess, who made the account for the mini bar, she was unpolite. nevertheless next time we would return to this hotel. no problems, perfect

The hotel is nice and clean. Just 5-10mins walk to BTS station(Asok). Pool is stuck away behind hotel - only mid day sun. Abt 15 mins to airport using motorway (w/ no traffic jam). Staffs are helpful and a 24hrs cafeteria.

Gym is basic.

Booking was straight forward and they were able to arrange for us transfer from Pattaya to Manhattan Hotel and late check out to suit.....

Beats me why anybody pays the high rates of these hotels. Never tried the Ambassador, probably never will judging by the comments.

Try the Federal Hotel further up Soi 11 (27 Sukhumvit Road, Soi 11, 10110 Bangkok) on the left. I always stay there when in Bangkok. A very nice "family run" hotel with small swimming pool and guest friendly. About 900 baht air-con room. and make sure you ask for the best ones. Tel: 2530175-6 2525143, 2534768-9 6510422-6 fax: 662 2535332 email: federalhotel@hotmail.com

Just my opinion.............

Over the last 30 years I've stayed at many hotels in Bangkok; everything from the old Thai Song Greet to the Sheraton Grand.

I now stay at the Ambassador. The location is great. The public areas just fine. The buffet breakfast is excellent. There are a number of nice restaurants around. The Sky Train is just a few steps away. Granted, the rooms are a little run down and the amenities slim.

But, for the money it is just fine.

The idea that it is a "sex tourist" hotel is just plain ignorant.
