The hotel clearly has a perfect location. To be more specific (and nerdy), it is almost located at the centroid of top 30 attractions in Vienna. In a range of 2 km, you will see most of touristic and cultural spots. We even didnt need to use the public transport during our stay. Rooms are spacious, approximately 40 sq meter,... More

I stayed in this hotel during Christmas season, and my experience was nothing less than amazing. Location of the hotel could not be better, everything is close. St Stephen's cathedral is 2 minutes away,Hotel Sacher is few minutes away... You have a shopping mole across the hotel, so if you like to shop,you don't have to carry your bags for... More

I couldn't believe how fancy this place was. Marble columns in the hallways, chandeliers in every room, a sitting area and tapestries in the bedroom... I very much enjoyed my stay. I was particularly happy with the modern bathroom, to include a full-power hairdryer. I only had two complaints: the hotel allows smoking and even though my room didn't smell... More

Bounded on one side by the main pedestrian-shopping street, Kartner Strasse, and Neue Markt, an upscale street complete with a beautiful fountain, the Ambassador occupies a perfect location. Whatever noise there may be outside, the soundproofing is efficient. Rooms like 411 and 314 are very large with lovely views. The restaurant and bar are just fine. The room service is... More

My girlfriend and I ate in the restaurant on Sunday 16th February and the experience was superb. The gentleman running the restaurant spoke very good English (a good job as my German is not the best) and was charming and helpful throughout. From the amuse bouche of beef Carpaccio through the starters (veal cheeks and smoked fish) and main courses... More

The best location ever! In the center of Vienna, in front of the Alberta museum. They have luxury rooms, special art and antique decoration, historical building, good service and complete breakfast. Amazing!

Stayed as a family of 4 over Christmas from 23rd to 26th Dec. Excellent location in the centre of Vienna made it very easy to walk to all the major sights.

An efficient and discreet hotel in the heart of Vienna. There are neither the sort of opulent public rooms, nor the overbearing service that one would normally associate with a 5-star property, which probably explains the large number of "4-star" reviews here. The front desk, for example, is tucked away by the side of a hallway leading to the sole... More

We have spent one night only in the Ambassador on a very short trip to Vienna. The location was chosen by map and it was no mistake. The hotel is perfectly placed right in the downtown on main shopping street from one side and quiet little square from the other. You just walk out and are “there”. It was great... More
