Value for money - central location, friendly staff, cafes and supermarket close by and walking distance from the lake.. the room was a bit small but cozy but then in Europe the luxury of big rooms is very limited -- all in all a great stay..

My second stay at the Ambassador and just as good as first time. Great location, outstanding service and very nicely appointed rooms. Best luxury option in Zurich, good price/ quality ratio and an overall great hotel.

A perfect stay for a few days. Small, friendly, well maintained, excellent service. The wine tasting on the hotel roof terrace was refreshing and, in the lack of the better word" soothing experience. Mainly because of the magnificent view of the whole of Zurich and especially because of very hospitable and charming Resident Manager. Not to mention the very nice...

The best part of this hotel is the location. You can step out the front door and you can begin your walk around old & new downtown Zurich. The rooms are clean but smaller than U.S. hotel rooms, however, the room has everything you need including free wi-fi. The staff was extremely friendly, courteous, and professional.

enjoyed a one night stay room was comfortable and had plenty of space, nice location within easy distance of anywhere by train, tram or taxi. Staff very helpful and eager to please. Not sure if breakfast is worth the money and if you come by car it is expensive to park overnight in the opera car park .

Ten minutes by cab from the main railway station, or minutes from the Stadelhofen Station, the Ambassador is perfectly placed.
