Well located near the lake and the opera (go if you can!!!). They have a nice restaurant and lobby with tea and cough + tv where you... More

Although we only stayed for one night in this lovely hotel it was a very pleasant experience. The reception staff made us feel very welcome even offering a glass of refreshing lemon water. The room was elegant with a large very comfortable bed with quality linen. The bathroom was outstanding - spotlessly clean, spacious, with a walk-in shower and lots... More

This hotel is centrally located near the old part of town, the Opera house, the Lake, and an easy Tram ride to the Banhoffstrasse for shopping, and the train station.

I have stayed at the Ambassador many times and now at the Opera, it's sister hotel. Both offer a good level of comfort for business visitors, and the location could not be better, right opposite the Opera House, next to the lakeside & a few minutes from Bellevue & Bahnhof Stadlehofen (with direct trains to the airport).

This time there had been a few renovations and we knew to book a larger room- 24sqm. I was happy with the size of this room, although there are also 28sqm rooms available. Our room was... More
