Check it Out! “Ambassador Hotel Waikiki” Explicit Review

I had no plan for sightseeing or relaxing at the hotel because I was staying for business purpose, so I did not ask for the quality of facilities and rooms concerning the hotel to the "Ambassador Hotel Waikiki" which I stayed this time. This was a good candidate because it is inexpensive and has minimal room equipments. This hotel is easy to access from the boulevard, and I planned to rent a car, so there is a parking lot for the guests and if there is something I need, I can go to a big shopping center in about 10 minutes by car.

Hotel exterior, entrance and reception

The hotel is clearly visible from the main street and is easily accessible by car or on foot.

The entrance is spacious and there are three different entrances.

The front desk can be seen immediately from the entrance, and if you check in at the front desk and look back, you can see the elevator and it is not a complicated lobby at all.

The elevator can not be used unless you have a card key, so security is good.

The corridor to the rooms is outside.

What is the City View Room like?

At first glance, the hotel seemed more like an apartment, but the rooms had all the necessities so it was enough for just sleeping. The key is a card key so I felt safe as well.

There is a TV, a small table and 3 chairs.


There is a toilet and a shower room just to the left. The room is divided into a toilet and a shower room by a wall and a curtain. There is no bathtub and only a shower. The shower was a fixed type, but I did not think that the water pressure was weak.

Only bath towels and hand towels were prepared. Guests need to bring the necessary bath amenities on their own.

Closet and safe

In the closet there was a fridge, a microwave, a pot, an iron and an ironing board. I do not think they there would be a hanging coats and so on.

View from the room

The room has a terrace. Because the hotel is located closer to the sea, you may be able to see the sea from in between the buildings.

The other side is the mountain side and there are other hotels and buildings nearby. The terrace itself is large enough to go out and enjoy the nice wind.

Outdoor pool

The pool faces the boulevard and is sunny. There is also a bench by the poolside and you can relax there. You can only swim during the day, but it lights up beautifully at night. You can go easily from the room to the pool with your swimwear.

Facilities in the hotel

There is a fitness gym.

There is a business center.

There is a self-service laundry room and an ice machine.

Environment around the hotel

There is a coffee shop at the entrance of the hotel. From there, you can walk to the beach. It closes at 12 o’clock, but there is also a convenience store, and there is a park if you pass the traffic lights. It is easy going to the beach.


It is approximately 20 minutes by car from the airport. It’s easy to rent a car at the airport. The area around the hotel seems to have a lot of a one-way street, but it is not a complicated road. It is a 10 minute drive to Ala Moana Shopping Center, and parking lots are free at Ala Moana Beach and Ala Moana Shopping Center, so I think it’s a good place to drive a rental car.

Staff and customer base

I only met the hotel staffs at the front desk, but I did not have any particular problems with them.They answered to my needs right away.

I saw many tourists, couples, college students and business travelers staying. It seemed like most of the people staying were not planning on staying for a long time.


I had a nice stay at this hotel. This hotel is for people who want to reduce the cost of accommodation or who are coming for work and don’t have to bother with the room. It is nice to be able to reduce the cost of accommodation. However, you can get up early for a refreshing workout at the fitness gym or swimming pool, explore the surroundings with bicycles, or work at the business center if you have the time. There is also free Wi-Fi in the hotel, which was very useful. You can stop by the nearby convenience store when you return to the hotel, and you can feel free to buy some things, so it is a hotel I recommend for those who are looking for a convenient but cheap hotel.
