The hotel staff goes out of their way to provide excellent service. In any nice hotel, it is the little things that count like the staff smiling and calling you by name. Rooms are a bit small but elegant and clean. There is a wonderful patio and the property is only a couple minutes from the lake. Also, the Stadelhofen... More

On a Vermont Bicycle Tour extension, 11 of us stayed at this hotel. Upon arrival we were met and greeted by the general manager. He introduced our city guide and invited us to a wine tasting at 1700 on the roof top. We anticipated a sales pitch for the small, luxury chain, but instead we were just treated grandly at... More

This is a nice classic hotel. Rooms seem a bit small, but very classy. The way a five star should be. I only stayed for a short night, but all was fine. The staff at reception is very friendly. The hotel is located a 5 minute walk from the lake. If you can spare 300+ euros for a single room,... More

This is my third stay in Zurich and before staying at the Ambassador I tried two other hotels ( Eden au Lac, not impressed and Schweizerhof, good but very pricey).
