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

The staff at the Ambassador were all very friendly. The room was cleaned extrememly well each day and the buffet breakfast was superb. No complaints at all. The room we had (322) was at the top of the hotel looking out over the lake.

When we first came in the Hotel a man at the reception welcomed us lovely. We didn't ask for a special room just a "usual" room for the two of us. All the a Service-People were that kind and uncomlicated. In about 5 minutes we were already in our Room. I have to admit I'm not the biggest traveler in... More

Many of the rear facing rooms have balconies with outstanding views over Lac Leman and the mountains on the south shore. Room 101 has a giant patio big enough for a good size cocktail party. The carpets are well worn and the furniture is old but clean. Wireless internet is available inclusive in the steep 200 CHF room charge. There... More

What would otherwise be a charming hotel which we have used many times before, I must categorically fault it for its failure to honour a confirmed reservation in writing, and for management being singularly rude in failing to make good on its error by assisting in finding alternate accommodation. A very black mark indeed.
