It is right in front of Lake Geneva, walking distance to all your shopping and dining. Front desk staff are very accommodating, the wait staff at the restaurant, less so. Rooms are small but comfortable. Internet is free. There is no gym, so if that's a dealbreaker for you, don't stay here. There is of course, a huge lake just... More

I have been in Geneva with some friends and we choose the Ambassador as it was extremely central in town. The Hotel is nice, it is a good four star hotel. The rooms are not the newest one, but all clean and tidy. The staff is friendly and helpful, internet is free of charge, the breakfast buffet is ok. I... More

The location of this Hotel is what you really pay for and I can assure you they know how to charge. The rooms are not of a 4 star standard and certain items such as one cup coffee machine and no iron or board in the room would not be the standard in any four star hotel. Breakfast is very... More

The staff and service at the hotel is fantastic. I initially booked a normal room but they bumped us up to a lake view upon our arrival with no extra charge - was very impressed. The room was extremely clean, and the views over Lake Geneva were very nice. The staff gave us a Geneva travel card as well when... More

I stayed at the Ambassador Hotel during last week business trip. Location is directly on the Lake Leman and close to shopping areas. At the sam time its about 350m from the Cornivan Main train station of Geneva. The hotel is not a luxury hotel, but has full services with clean and very comfortable bedding. Across the street from Starbucks... More

The rooms were tiny (I stayed in 2 different rooms), walls are thin, equipment is old. Apart from the superb location, definitely not worth the price tag. The staff was super friendly as well, but the rooms really need an upgrade.
