If you are like me, as I read reviews on trip advisor I am always trying to discern if the poor reviews are written by people like me or the kind of people who are perpetually dissatisfied. The Ambassador Hotel is a lovely hotel in Zurich, well priced, excellent breakfast, great location and the staff is friendly and helpful. The... More

Amazing hotel, room, view, staff! This quaint and cozy hotel was absolutely amazing. We only had one night in Zurich and wished we had more. Our room was small, yet extremely cozy and did not feel cramped in the least. The location could not be better and the staff was more then helpful. Cannot wait to stay here again!

This is a lovely old style old charm hotel very close to the promenade and quite central. There are lots of nice extras you would expect in a member of the Small Luxery Hotels. It is quite a small hotel but the staff are lovely. Big plus is the internet speed is really fast, something essential for business travellers

Hotel Ambassador is a great hotel. The personal is one of the best I have ever met. Rooms are great, some cozy, some large. It is near the Lake Zurich and has a very near subway line passing through all parts of Zurich.

Zurich has mechanical yet real things like this business hotel. Stay here if you need comfort a veg restaurant and takeaway and a train station next door. Thats precisely why i stay here twice a year. Meet the tea friendly hotel staff and catch up on what to do on your free day. Good tiny rooms yet charming

A very enjoyable few days. Close proximity to shops and lake; a clean, comfortable and charming room, with a Swiss flag fluttering on my balcony, no less, The staff were very polite. Would stay there next trip.
