I am surprised this is a 4 star hotel, it looks fine on the surface, but I found several things not satisfactory: The room very hot, and the a/c didn't work. The bath could not be used as the plug leaked all the water out. Shower head you had to hold, not too great.. The wifi was patchy, could have...

Just stayed here for 1 night while being on business trip in the area. Ok hotel for this but not more. Room is decent size but a little bit aged. Cleanliness is average at max. But again for 1 night it's ok especially considering the price our company gets.

Ok for 1 night, late check-in from Lyon Airport, quick sleep, decent wifi, good shower, and an adequate breakfast... nothing great, but nothing to complain either... wasn't surprised that there were many people at the bar in the night, since there is nothing much around here at all.

Ambassadeur hotel is what I would call a standard business hotel - everything was quite ok, no disappointments but no highlights either. Very quick and convenient check-in and check-out, room quality was along expectations for the hotel with 4 stars and overall service was friendly. On the plus side, location is convenient if you are for example renting a car...

Taxis would not transfer us from the airport and there was no shuttle bus for the weekend. The hotel restaurant and bar were closed. Corridors were unlit. The cleaner was still in the room when we arrived. The hotel is next to land full of rubble.

“Maybe if rated as 3 stars and we would have payed 80-90 Euros we would feel differntly, but the price and rating of 4 stars were misleading.”
