i came to zurich for a job interview and brought my family along with me. It was their 1st trip to zurich although i've lived there before. It was therefore critical that my family enjoyed their stay as we may be moving to the city and first impressions count! Im really glad we stayed the Ambassador. The location of the... 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...

I stayed here for a night just before Christmas and was very impressed with this beautiful hotel. The location was great, easy to get to from the airport as it is really close to a train station and it's a short pleasant walk into the city centre. The hotel is clean and presented beautifully. However what I liked most about... More

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.

Is a classy, nicely furnished hotel. Located close to the center, but still a few minutes walk from the busy streets. Well-trained staff, pleasant atmosphere. I would recommend it to everybody who appreciates the old-style quality standards.

First time in Zurich and picked this hotel partly because of good reviews. Very easy to get to from the airport thanks to excellent Swiss transport - we bought 72 hour travel cards (cost around £ 32 each) which got us to and from airport, plus free transport around Zurich during our stay (including an excellent 1 and a half...

The hotel was what I expected from four star hotel in Zurich. Well organized, absolutely clean, practically equipped and with professional and very nice staff. No surprises in this. Location is great, both for business and tourist’s visitors. For both flying in and arriving to Zurich by train I recommend S-bahn, goes from the airport through Main Station every 20... More

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.

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!
