The Ambassador is a good business hotel choice. The Internet worked, although wireless involves someone coming to your room and installing a wireless router. The connection was fast and reliable once it was set up.
Rooms were clean. You have to request an iron and ironing board.
The breakfast buffet is good and the coffee was the best I've had in this city so far.
The staff is slow and there are rules that can't be broken. That translates into don't ask someone to do a job that belongs to someone else. A front desk person quote your internet rate? No way, go to the business center.
It's still a better choice than many of the other hotels and you can walk to Nevsky and the tourist areas, if you have good feet and good walking shoes.
