Old fashion charm in Cork
The hotel has that 1950s charm. The lobby takes you back in time. The bar in the restaurant is well stocked and breakfast is superb. It is a little hike to the main part of Cork city center and parking on hotel grounds is limited. Highly recommend.

Good6.0
The hotel was amazing however the walls werw so thin you could hear everything in the room next to us and the hallway. Kept us up late at night. Laura, the receptionist was absolutely phenomenal!! Her knowledge of the area, sights, and options was beyond standard. She made our stay absolutely 5 star!

Beautiful hotel, helpful staff, comfortable room and the restaurant was great! The food was delicious and we loved the atmosphere in there. The hotel is obviously a little older so has some creaks and character, but it didn't lack for anything we needed and we greatly enjoyed our stay.

Ambassador Hotel in Cork
This is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the view is spectacular. Parking is limited, but was mostly available when needed. The restaurant has great food, but it is pretty pricey. Better prices are available in town. The location is very convenient to the city center, but if walking you should be prepared for a pretty strenuous walk uphill to the hotel.
