Lovely room, breakfast and options, location ideal for Hillhead subway. Friendly helpful staff. Able to park. Wifi sound. Quiet enough despite being near main roads. Plenty of dining options at night too. Would stay again. So sorry Rangers didn't make it!! Great to meet fans on the subway! @h2cm

Central location to access central Glasgow with excellent links by bus or subway and two taxi ranks nearby. Byres Rd has a number of vibrant bars and restaurants within walking distance. The purpose of our visit was to visit family for a few days and again The Ambassador was a great location for access to them. We actually stayed in one of the adjacent Embassy apartments which was equipped with a fridge, cooker and a toaster which were a welcome surprise as we were able to chill drinks and food and make toast but you could cook a full meal if desired. There was plenty of room to hang clothes and store personal effects.The room was clean and serviced daily. The addition of a safe in the room would be beneficial. Sam was duty manager for the duration of our stay and was very friendly and particularly helpful regarding access to parking arrangements. He was also persistent in chasing the water board to fix a blocked drain outside the hotel. Overall great value!

What a find! Absolutely beautiful! My family and I stayed here 2 nights while seeing Scotland and it was by far one of the biggest rooms. They offer free parking, and if you are lucky like us you will get a spot right in front. It's located right across the street from the Botanical Garden and is perfectly located close to all the hot spots.I would defiantly stay here again.

This is a good hotel run on minimum resources. We stayed in a large apartment room with a high ceiling, kitchen area as well as a sofa and bathroom. The man at reception also served breakfast and seemed to be stretched in terms of things to do. The breakfast in the morning was sufficient and tasty. The coffee came from a machine.
