Fabulous 8.8 From 183 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent hotel- loved it
Enjoyed my stay. Lovely boutique style hotel. Comfortable ensuite. Plenty safe on street parking in front and apparently its own car park behind. Booked the breakfast at £9 on a fellow review recommendation. It did not disappoint and set me up for full day- and the smell of bacon wafting to my room was brilliant!

Great last minute booking!
Booked 2 nights at the Ambassador at the relative last minute in order to have a place to crash at night nearby to where some of my friends live that I was up for over New Year's to visit. Considering the time of year and how late I left booking this the price I was offered was great! When I arrived there, reception was a little late in tending to me (rang the bell several times and no one showed up ... had to go behind the desk and knock on the 'Staff' door to get someone's attention) but outside of that the gentleman was very friendly and accommodating. My room was very clean and warm, the bed was very comfortable (no lumpy mattress), bathroom was also very clean with a comfortably large shower and the general room service was excellent. Considering I paid roughly £66 for these 2 nights over New Year's of all times ... I will *definitely* be returning here in the future when I need a place to crash near my friends! Highly recommended!

Nice West End hotel
This is a pleasant hotel near to the Botanic Gardens in the West End of Glasgow. Access to Glasgow's excellent Subway system is a 10 minute walk, which gives access to local & national train services. There is an excellent selection of bars & restaurants nearby

Good 6.0
Stayed in room 14on top floor overlooking a roof. No lift so had to carry luggage up 3 flights of stairs. Not recommended for the less able bodied. Shower in bathroom.. left a lot to be desired the glass doors were hanging off. Advised reception of problem, advised would get sorted, so unable to use shower on our first night, maintenance were supposed to have fixed doors whilst we were out the following day but on our return the door were still not secure and only hanging on by top rollers we were told it was ok. I refused to have shower as I felt it was unsafe.hotel was clean and modern. Parking we were advised was available but on arrival we discovered the parking was on main roads outside front of hotel and a very small car park down a very narrow lane at back of hotel. Just about big enough for a car or two and lane filled with wheelie bins. Location stated one mile from city centre.. that was not correct it was a minimum of 4 miles and cost £20 return to and from hotel. Overall it was a nice hotel, breakfast ok but would not book again. very disappointing end to my Scottish adventure

Best hotel in Glasgow west end.
It was a truly great hotel stay, staff was very nice helpful, hotel was immaculate and beautiful. Derek the manager is an asset to this hotel, very professional, was helpful with everything asked. Breakfast was delicious made to order. I will definitely be returning each time I am in Glasgow. I give this hotel 10 stars if I could, definitely conscious efforts to make their guests welcomed and go above and beyond.
