    Very good”

    I asked in my preference a queen bed and it was 3 singles bed they changes it for 2 double bed and told me that is your reservation site the problem because it was mentionned for my preference " if it is available " usually if Ichoose for queen or king bed this is what I have it is not a preference choice. How come it is a preference and not guarantee when we reserve with your website?

    In the years come hotel with prices which are not in order for the equipment”

    A hotel with a good location . Very old rooms , mold growth , very loud , street noise and an air conditioning system that is so loud that one thinks an airplane lands in the room . Still too expensive for the price.

    Could be better but not too bad. ”

    The room had what we needed: clean bed and a mini kitchen (fridge, microwave, and small stove with 2 pots). Room had small balcony facing the street. Shower was small and sink was starting to clog. Kid friendly! Pool is basic, and outdoor showers were not working properly. The entire hotel could use a basic remodel and some areas can be freshly painted.

    Amazing !!”

    We were a bit hesitate on booking here because of reviews that We have read but We bit the bullet and gave them a go.. I am so glad we did!! The staff are amazing , the room we were in was beautiful and the pool was delightful !! I think we were in the diamond head tower as our building looked newer than the other one .. the location was amazing as well only a short walk to Waikiki beach and TheBus stops are so close!! We loved it.. thank you again Ambassador Hotel Waikiki 💜💙

    Would not recommend this to my friends. Photos on line very deceiving from what you actually get. Very run down appears no money spent on maintenance. Air Conditioning unit was rusting out on balcony. Not value for money. More like a 2 star hotel.

    Nice Hotel! Close to Waikiki Beach. Great value”

    Everything was as per the description on Agoda website; however, I only realized there is an additional resort fee of 20$ per person per stay to be paid. Overall, still a great value! Gropon offers a better deal than Agoda though....

    Great price and great location”

    All around great for what you pay for. Facilities and rooms are old and dated, but that's to be expected for the price you pay especially in Waikiki. The elevators are really janky and feel like they'll break down at any moment, which was my only gripe.

    Very old hotel”

    The hotel is very tired and in need to a real makeover. The rooms are nothing like the pictures. The staff were helpful and friendly and the pool area was really nice. There is no bar or restaurant but a good coffee shop next door. I had a room with a kitchenette but everything was old and I didn’t feel like using the facilities. Having said that I had a great holiday and the accommodation didn’t spoil it.

    Location--Location--Location”

    The location is great....a 20 minute walk to Waikiki Beach...a 30 minute walk to Walmart. Handy for number 19 or 20 bus from airport (make sure you have a map as bus stops in Saratoga Street near Ambassador Hotel. Many...many upmarket shops lining the street as you walk from hotel to beach. Something I did not like was a US$20.00 (plus tax) COMPULSORY charge for "resort facilities". This is extra on top of what you pay Agoda...if you refuse to pay they refuse to give you a room. It is easy for sight-seeing on the local busses. You just need to do your home work before you go. SHOPS IN HONOLULU ARE EXPENSIVE BY AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS.

    Worst place I’ve stayed in a long time”

    I requested 1 large bed during booking. The room had 3 single beds. When I talked to the front desk, the person said it was a request not a demand. Huge clump of hair in the shower. I’m bald. There is hand writing on the wall. The place looks like it hasn’t been maintained in 50 years

    It's one of the horrible hotels I've every stayed (I am traveling a lot) ”

    room and corridor - just like a motel, dark and not comfortable, not very clean the bed had even comforter /sheet at all the sound from upper room like thunders...can't sleep at all shower booth - small and dirty shower - water dropped all night - sounds so big receptionist - very polite but not much helpful unfortunately, he said he wasn't responsible for hotel amenities, only for the reception while he was the only contact for us to talk to It was like horror motel experience for one night - kids were scared. Won't come again even paid. High - have kichen, towels and soap etc ok, bed cleanness ok Recommendation - need to clearly explain this is not like the normal hotel we may expect at Wikiki, there's no bed comforter, the room could be really noisy (much more than we usually expect) with upper store room guest walking in the room. Receptionist was very polite but not very helpful hope he could be more responsible (instead of saying I don't know, I am not responsible etc)

    The location is excellent and the pool area very satisfactory. Decor particularly in bathroom rather dated and tired. Reception staff were efficient. Beds comfortable and room spacious. No furniture on lanai meant dragging bedroom chairs outside if you wanted to enjoy using this balcony.
