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

Located in a central location near lake Zurich, the hotel was very convenient for strolling by the lake and exploring the city. The staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. The room was very elegantly decorated and extremely comfortable and perfect for a short stay. The sunshine through the window in the morning and the balcony overlooking the opera house... More

Excellent location and customer service. We had great room on the second floor - spacious with sitting area and great bathroom. All good amenities. Delicious fish restaurant downstairs worthy of visit. Good small breakfast. We like small portions. Not for people who are used to large spread and big portions. If you are late for their breakfast(10:30), don't despair -... More
