This hotel is a beautiful old European hotel. The rooms was very nice, clean, and decorated nicely. The location couldn't be better. There are two entrances, one on a vehicular street, and the other exiting right on to the main shopping street. Just a couple of minutes walk to st. Stephens, the Opera House, the u-bahn, and the trams. If... More

For our second trip to Vienna we chose this hotel for the location and the 5 stars. The building is beautiful and the rooms are spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and helpful although they did let us down by not managing to get us a seat at the Opera. Our fault - we should have... More

The building is impressive, however due to the obsolete furniture and especially the poor services it does not deserve its five stars. We arrived at 14.00 hrs after 6 hours drive, coming from Hintertux, however the room was not yet ready. We left the luggage and went for a walk and lunch, we asked for the luggage at least to...

We didn't know what to expect from this hotel but we were pleasantly surprised. The reason I say this is because it is an older hotel that had mixed reviews online. The rooms were larger than what we are used to when traveling to Europe. They kept it very clean and the location was great! I honestly believe without spending... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Ambassador. We were upgraded to a Jr. Suite so that was a huge plus. Fantastic breakfast. The waiter remembered my ordering of crepes on Day 1 and had them waiting for me when I came down the next day. Fantastic location to the main points of interest within Vienna. Thanks Ambassador...

Upon arrival a this classic old hotel in the center of Vienna my husband and I were upgraded to a Junior Suit at no charge.

Awesome location. Situated between Stefansplatz and the Opera house on Kaertner street. In walking distance to most of the famous sightseeing places. Rooms are adequately spacious with high ceilings and a classical touch. Very clean and comfortable. Found it to be reasonably priced compared to other similar class hotels in the area. Can be noisy outside on weekends as is... More

We had a big, pleasant room, though average furnishings. However the bathroom was enormous, with a heated towel rack and two wash basins, which quite made up for the room. The location is ideal and one can walk to most of the Viennese attractions, it is also on the main shopping street. The breakfast was not included and was very... More
