The Ambo hotel consists of several triplex units with high steeply-pitched roofs -- like something you might see in Germany -- set among a very well maintained garden landscape.
The design really stands out as perhaps some of the finest examples of architecture in town. Unfortunately, the same care and workmanship isn't applied in the rooms' interiors; the room we aw had a badly stained toilet and three firm beds that took up nearly the entire floorspace. The more expensive sea-view rooms are slightly larger and contain an air-con and minibar. The staff speak very little English and there is no WiFi or breakfast included with the room. The Shwe Hin Tha, located next door, is a much better value. Only consider this one if everything else in town is full.
