“Great Value and Central Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

Love this hotel! I first discovered this hotel in 1978 and have been enjoying Geneva from its central location on many trips since. The Ambassador Staff is excellent, providing good personal services. It is located in the heart of Geneva and provides very good accomodations at a very reasonable price. The rooms are cozy, clean and nicely appointed. Ask for a room overlooking the river or the quaint square with a fountain.

A hidden gem in an expensive city. Excellent location, on the lake, close to shopping and the financial district.

Spent 5 nights in the hotel at the end of July. Room was spacious with bathroom including bath and shower, tv and tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast was ok and about the same price as Starbucks. Location is great just by bridge and about 10 mins walk to old town. All in all a nice hotel and good stay

I booked a deluxe room which has a wonderful view on the river. The bed was completely comfortable, and the bathroom was nice.

The location is excellent in the city center of Geneva.

Excellent service and well informed and very friendly staff.

The staff was very friendly and speaking English, the Internet is free in the lobby.

Breakfast was amazingly delicious and rich.

I recommend any couples or family to stay at it.

I have been going to the Ambassador on a regular basis for the last two years. if you don't mind the decoration of the rooms (where did they find the interior designer !!!) everything else is great. First the staff is very efficient, pleasant and ready to help. The rooms are clean and with all the amenities you expect in a hotel of this category. I only wish they would have free internet service which is only available in the lobby or the first floor. The breakfast is nothing special, however the chef at the restaurant and the food is excellent. I can only recommend it. It is a small hotel very well located; the rooms are also quite as there is very little traffic on this side of Quai des Bergues.

Overall a very nice hotel that I will continue to visit, but please, don't hire the same interior designer on the next refurbishing.

Room Tip: first floor rooms across Starbucks means free internet

Stayed in this hotel for 2 days in March 2011. Hotel staff are extremely helpful and provided us with maps of places that we should visit. They recommended some restaurants that were really excellent. The room was clean and had everything we needed but was very dimly lit which bothered us. The room furniture is very distasteful. Breakfast was ok; not superior though. The best thing about this hotel is it's location; walking distance to shopping, sights, etc. And it's right on the lake. Also, Starbucks is right across the street. I would stay there again!
