Comfortable room with a lot of indirect lighting. Not the best for reading. Wi Fi was very good and easy to connect to. Basic bath with step in tub shower combo. Desk had a straight chair that was a bit uncomfortable. Bed was firm, pillows not so much.

5 mins by tram from the centre of Bern but at the foot of the picturesque Gurten, the Ambassador is a well priced, clean and comfortable stay. Rooms are plain butbwell appointed, with a view over Bern or the hillside complete with bell cladden cows. Your tram ticket which gives unlimited movement within the city is included in your room...

The breakfast buffet has a decent selection of charcuterie cuts, cheeses, breads and fruits. Great value hotel in Bern that's only a short 7min metro ride from city center. My... More

The Ambassador Hotel and Spa was clean and modern. The staff is very helpful. The bathrooms may be a little quirky - some with the sink and shower exposed to the sleeping area - and all with the toilet facilities enclosed behind a curved glass wall. The location is great, with a tram stop just across the street. The city... More
