Air-conditioning didn’t seem to work in the room when we arrived but we gave it the benefit of the doubt as it had not been on, so we left it on a while. It didn’t improve, made a lot of noise, but didn’t make anything cooler. The next day I spoke to reception about it not working and they sent a hotel porter up to investigate. He moved the dial and told me it was working; I disagreed with his assessment and he left. 10 mins later we had a telephone call from reception. When I explained that it was definitely not working he offered us another room. The second room had air-con that was a lot quieter and a bit cooler. The Ambasciatori, if you read the rest of the reviews, seems to have spent at least the last two years having maintenance done. It is still not finished, despite a note in the hotel rooms saying all renovations had been finished, and the builders, assorted ladders and power tools and dust everywhere did not back up this claim. The general decor of the room was dark blue, wardrobe, doors, carpet etc. The carpet was matted and bobbly and you wouldn’t want to walk on it barefoot. The safe in the room needed a PhD to work out how to use it. When booking the hotel wi-fi was an important factor. Disappointingly, It did not work in the hotel rooms. The only place you could get it was in the breakfast room which was off-limits other than at breakfast time and in a small area just outside the breakfast room that had a few chairs, but were covered in dust from the aforementioned builders. The location was fantastic; only a two minute walk to The Doumo. The man on reception during our stay was very friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about Milan. Breakfast was a good selection of cold meats and pastries and the coffee was excellent. However, this is most certainly not a four star hotel and I would not stay there again.
