With its unique location in the heart of Zurich,Small Luxury Ambassador has charmed guests for many years. The old town, the world-famous Bahnhofstrasse, the renowned Opera House, and the train station Stadelhofen with direct Airport link within 16 minutes are all just a few steps away. The privately owned boutique hotel in Zurich's Seefeld district is part of the former Uto Castle, which was built in 1898 in the neo-baroque style, and its unique roof terrace "THE VIEW" offers guests an exclusive retreat with breathtaking views of the Alps and Lake Zurich. The 45 comfortable and very individual hotel rooms, with complimentary WiFi and many other high-quality amenities, make for a memorable and eventful stay in Zurich. The electronically adjustable beds in all the rooms round off the hotel's offering and guarantee guests optimum relaxation coupled with a luxurious and restful night's sleep. The Restaurant Opera is a true haven of culinary delights.

Recommended great places to see and eat. Very helpful with educating us to the public transportation and especially the train. The hotel was beautiful and our room was very nice. Loved the smaller more personalized feel of this hotel.

I did not take the train, but it's about 16 minutes. You'll want to go to the Stadelohofen train station, as its the closest station to the hotel.
