From the moment I walked into the hotel, I knew I'd made the right decision. Staff on the front desk were delightful, whether it was check in, on passing as you were entering/leaving the hotel, or when you're in need for an adapter because you realise yours doesn't fit. The location is brilliant, and felt very safe. Very close to... More

Our room was very small, but typically European. Coffee maker and nice turn down service. We had a view of the back of the opera house, but it was under construction. Bathroom and products were very nice. Front desk staff was always available and had a smile and suggestion. The best part of this hotel was the elegant and delicious... More

I booked this hotel for one night (I had a 16 hour layover in Zurich). I am very happy I did! It was a little expensive for a one night stay but I have never been to Zurich before so I figured I would explore the city a little. The trains, trams, and buses are all in the airport. I... More

Stayed with my wife for long weekend, (4 nights). The room at the 4th floor was good size modern decorated with Opera and partial river view. Two large windows get a lots of day light in the morning get you going. Excellent breakfast in the hotel nice restaurunt with good atmosphere complete a good start for the day tours.

Enjoyable staying in clean and quiet hotel. Staff is friendly and professional, rooms are nice, excellent breakfast. In the middle of city. Comfortable bed. After long thinking what could be better-tea water should be at least 80 degrees (breakfast table).

Stayed two nights when we first arrived in Zurich based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed..Joined the Small Luxury Club so was upgraded which the hotel did not have to do as we did not reserve directly. Very nice and helpful staff. It was extremely warm in Zurich and there was no AC as we were to... More

I have visited Zurich a number of times over the years, and each time (at least in recent years) I have stayed at this hotel's sister property, Hotel Opera. Nice and all as the Hotel Opera is, the Hotel Ambassador seems to my mind to have a slight edge on it. The two hotels are just across the street from... More

There's a group of small hotels in this area, behind the Zurich Opera, and the Ambassador is definitely one of the best of them. It's a good four star, and quite stylish - in a more traditional way. Service is good, the rooms are nice (and smallish), and the breakfast buffet is what I remember the best; Swiss hotel breakfasts... More

We were very pleased with the location, the staff, the furnishings and amenities, the rooms, the beds, the cleanliness, and the restaurant. The General Manager went out of his way to meet and greet everyone in our group of sixteen. At the Friday night hospitality hour on the hotel roof, the manager and staff personally talked to each of us... More
