i got ripped off
view, location, and staff performance
the reason i chose the ambassador hotel was due the - sea view. the rate was not cheap, comparatively to hotels in same vicinity. i got a room with a view of another block of flats. if you put your head out the window and look backwards you can see the sea. a total rip off. i don't know if its agoda fault or Ambassador hotel fault, but i felt stung and will think twice before using either agoda or ambassador again. thanks etienne
