Needed a one night hotel in Nyon overlooking the lake of Geneva. Very nicely appointed room and perfect bathroom. I love the style and the view from our room overlooking the lake and Nyon Chateau was just beautiful. Great to be so close to center of the town.

ive stayed at the ambassador in Nyon a few times now. I very much like the authentic, non-chain feel to the property. Full of character! The staff are very welcoming and helpful, inclusive breakfast is a little limited, but will meet most people's needs. The great plus is the location, just 5 minutes walk to the train station and 5...

A recent business trip landed me at the Hotel Ambassador for a 4 night stay. My room was large and comfortable, with a comfortable king bed, two sitting chairs and a work desk. The bath was well appointed and very clean and included a hairdryer not mentioned in their website. A door opened unto a second floor balcony with a... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The room we had on the second level had french doors opening to a huge balcony with a great view of the local castle and Lake Geneva. Staff was friendly. Hotel is centrally located near train station and everything Nyon has to offer.

We came upon this hotel late in the evening when looking for an overnight stop before our flight back from Geneva the following morning. We needed something affordable and almost passed this one by because it looked rather too expensive! Nyon is a sensible and delightful stopping point just outside Geneva situated right beside the lake and missed by tourists... More

I've stayed at 4 different Hotels in Nyon and only just discovered the Hotel Ambassador this trip. From the street it looks quite ordinary, but inside it is a very charming place to stay. It is the only hotel in Nyon to have an outside garden area. . In summer, avoid the third floor as the rooms can feel a... More

I recently visited Nyon on business and was fortunate enough to stay in this Hotel. The staff were patient (my very poor French), friendly and helpful. The hotel is looking a little worn in places, but my room (101) was large, clean and comfortable - with access to a private terrace overloking the Lake. Superb. The buffet breakfast was delicious...

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Ambassador. We had a room on the lake side with a small patio exposed to the sun where we could enjoy the gorgeous lake and mountain view. The room itself is cute, simple and clean with all of the standard amenities one can expect from a 3-star hotel and a good service. Some of... More

Front desk receptionists were very good, friendly, and provided excellent customer service. Room was clean. Halls and room all smelled a bit of synthetic perfume. Best hotels use no perfume. The elevator was broken. They said it's old and can't find parts and it needs to be rebooted (turn on and off) regularly to work! Worst part -- room had... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend a friend's wedding. The positives: friendly staff, large room, balcony with view of Lake Leman and Mont Blanc, centrally located between the Nyon train station and the city center, wonderful buffet breakfast (included in the rate). The Negatives: rather dated decor, two twins beds pushed together (although this is quite common in Europe).... More
