I was a bit indecisive when trying to decide which hotel to stay because of cost and location factor. Finally , we decided to stay at the Ambassador. And it was a right choice! Great location, not too near the center but only 10 mins walking away or 3-4 trams stops. Service is great. Christina in the reception is a...

We are from Australia on our 30th Wedding Anniversary tour of Switzerland. Zurich first stop. Hotel Ambassador was very easy to get to from the airport by train. Very friendly greeting upon our late night arrival and an upgrade on our room made the long plane trip not so bad. Due to arriving in the dark we had no real...

I fell in love with this hotel before we even stayed here. Just sending emails to the receptionist was so helpful. Loved our room, windows opened onto a great city view- but when closed the hotel was silent. Loved the welcome champagne and the roof top view. Lovely hotel and an amazing staff. It's ruined us for the rest of...

Nice hotel close to the Lake Zurich and opera. Breakfast buffet was very good and pretty view from the top deck of the hotel. Hotel is old, but updated all facilities, friendly personal and decent rooms.

I had recent three-night stay at Hotel Ambassador a l'Opera. I really enjoyed staying at this property. I'd arrived in the late morning, after travelling Sydney-Hong Kong-Helsinki-Zurich in one go.

This is a hotel with character but very modern room facilities. Large TV, huge bed with electric head and foot raise controls and airconditioning and double glazing. Very good in-house restaurant for dinner and lots of other cafes and restaurants within a few minutes walk. Very friendly and helpful staff from reception to restaurant to room servicing. Immaculately clean. Great...

What a gem this hotel turned out to be. Staff was amazing, especially Christina! Terrific location, fantastic breakfast and a warm, cozy feel that makes you think you aren't in a hotel. The restaurant and breakfast area are stunning, room was large and spacious (we had a triple), and location was right where you want to be, but just secluded...

The room and hotel itself is nice. I particularly liked the hotel's facade. I also enjoyed dining in their restaurant. Food and service was great! The only downside is that they don't have their own gym.
