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

I like the area around Bellevue...it's easy to reach from the airport (just take the to Stadelhofen),you are central but close to the lake (walking distance) and to "old Zurich", the tram station at Bellevue brings you almost everywhere in the city...the atmosphere is very nice, service is excellent, food is good, rooms are not too small, great roof terrace...

Since I had to stay in a hotel at Christmas, I decided to splurge a little and find a nice one. Not over-the-top, but better than a 'bargain' (hard to find in Zurich anyway). This one was absolutely perfect. Not only was the room itself just what I had in mind -- the staff did so many small things that... More

Stayed in Hotel Ambassador for 2 nights earlier, loved the location and the charming little hotel. It's very friendly and cosy, had everything taken care of. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Great location! 1 min walk from nearest tram station, 3 mins walk from train station directly from airport.
