Why choose the Ambassador Hotel in Waikiki – which is just at the beginning of the busy strip – close to the Hilton Waikoloa Village? Well, for one, it has room rates under $100 even in the busiest times, although it does charge a $22 resort fee. Price and location did convince me – but did it work out otherwise?

The hotel is somewhat old-fashioned – take a look at this sign.

Plus the lobby area could have straight out of the 60s.

While check-in was very friendly, those weren’t exactly good signs for a good stay.

My room was not remodeled, but it was in good condition. It was pretty big and well kept. It came with a kitchenette and a separate bathroom (which looked a bit odd as it had the main closet in it).

The internet came in at an amazing 20 Mbit and was fast and stable throughout our stay.

From the 15th floor, the views over Waikiki were gorgeous day and night.

The only big negative was the air conditioning, which was just an old-school window unit, which was very loud. There is no way you can switch it on and be in the room without getting a headache, let alone sleep. Now Hawaii is rather cool at night but the apartment’s big windows heat it up a lot during the day.

The hotel has a pool but it wasn’t something we wanted to really make use of, as the beach is just two blocks away and stunningly beautiful.

The hotel has a lot of laundry services downstairs, which – to my surprise- were in heavy demand.

All in all, this is a good no-frills option if you get the room for under $100. It’s better in winter (due to the lack of usable AC) or if you know you won’t usually feel too hot at night.
