My second stay at the Ambassador and just as good as first time. Great location, outstanding service and very nicely appointed rooms. Best luxury option in Zurich, good price/ quality ratio and an overall great hotel.

A perfect stay for a few days. Small, friendly, well maintained, excellent service. The wine tasting on the hotel roof terrace was refreshing and, in the lack of the better word" soothing experience. Mainly because of the magnificent view of the whole of Zurich and especially because of very hospitable and charming Resident Manager. Not to mention the very nice... More

I stayed here for 5 nights recently. The hotel is in a great location, just across the road from the Lake. We had the most enjoyable stay. The hotel was a great size, not too big and impersonal, and the decor was beautiful. What really set it apart though were the staff. Nothing was a problem, or too much trouble... More

The best part of this hotel is the location. You can step out the front door and you can begin your walk around old & new downtown Zurich. The rooms are clean but smaller than U.S. hotel rooms, however, the room has everything you need including free wi-fi. The staff was extremely friendly, courteous, and professional. We did not eat...

Because we came to Zurich to go to the operé this hotel (what's in a name) is the perfect location ; just behind the opera house. Nice entrance salon , nice well-equipped rooms and a perfect breakfest

enjoyed a one night stay room was comfortable and had plenty of space, nice location within easy distance of anywhere by train, tram or taxi. Staff very helpful and eager to please. Not sure if breakfast is worth the money and if you come by car it is expensive to park overnight in the opera car park .

Ten minutes by cab from the main railway station, or minutes from the Stadelhofen Station, the Ambassador is perfectly placed. On the edge of the lake, and close to the old town, the food and bars below the university are within a few minutes walk, and more elegant shopping is a few minutes further across the bridge. Hotel offers free... More

This is a small boutique hotel, and its a part of the SLH chain. The location is perfect, food is good and the service is excellent. My room was the cheapest on offer as I was staying alone and for only a few hours from late dinner till an early morning meeting. The room was a bit dated, and very... More
