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.

Stayed here for three nights in December. Location is excellent, short walk into the city, but far enough away to be very quiet, the central part of Zurich is fairly compact and easily walkable. Used the Zurich Stadelhofen train station, an easy 5 minute walk with luggage, both

Perfectly located near the Opera House, lake, and a few minutes walk to the Stadelhofen train station where you can catch the S16 train for a 20 minute ride to the airport. This boutique hotel is very clean with a wonderful, warm ambiance. Then there’s the staff who can’t do

Thank you Michael for being an excellent host. I very much enjoyed my stay in the Mozart room with a ravishing view over the Opera and the Bellevue Square! Love the natural and local soap the hotel is offering. Looking forward to my next stay in Zurich.

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.

Is this a quiet hotel? I don't want to be around any bars or night clubs. Thank you
Hi Jacqueline, it is a quiet hotel. While the lake/waterfront is only a few minutes away and there are a small number of local restaurants, the hotel's surroundings and immediate environment are low key with no visible 'rowdy' bars or nightclubs.
