The location cannot be beat in central Geneva and the view of the lake is gorgeous. A couple of the hotel front desk staff happen to be the rudest we have ever encountered in this type of business. Unfortunately, their behavior put a real damper on our stay. I would also skip the breakfast buffet which is very expensive and... More

This is my second and most probably a very last stay in this hotel. Attracted by the price and location, I tried to manage my expectations but this time it was too much for me. I was pleased to get a large room on the 5th floor, but it appeared to be a very bad idea! There is no AC... More

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
