“Excellent location and good value”
Reviewed 10 December 2011

Fantastic location close to Stephensplatz but within walking distance of all the sights in central Vienna. Rooms spacious and of a good standard. Didn't eat in the restaurant as there are lots of cafes nearby for breakfast / lunch and restaurants for dinner. Staff friendly and helpful. Strongly recommend for a city break.

Only criticism is that coffee/ tea not available in room. We asked for and got a kettle!

My mother, husband and I stayed for five nights at the Ambassador Hotel and could not have been happier with our choice. The hotel's location is simply SUPERB allowing you easy access - even on foot - to all the important spots whether for sightseeing, shopping, eating or simply taking nice relaxing walks. The rooms are clean and spacious, especially by European standards, and equipped with all needed amenities. Beds are really comfortable and the bath, though small, is more than adequate. We booked the room on a pre-paid basis and as such were able to get an excellent rate, but minus the breakfast and therefore cannot comment on the quality of the breakfast. Did not use any of the restaurants but tried the bar once. I have to say that for a five star hotel, the service was surprising. Ordering beer and wine, we did not get any nuts or chips to accompany - very strange especially when you compare it to other five star hotels. The following night, we went to the Marriott's bar, and the service was quite different. Also, the bar closes relatively early and you find yourself looking for a place to unwind after a day of exploring the lovely city especially if you do not want to turn in early. Moreover, the lobby is so tiny that having more than two people sitting there makes you feel cramped. The hotel has two entrances, which is a plus and right across from one of them is a taxi stand. Tip: Go to Henry's (which shares a couple of stories with Billa) for breakfast and brunch - they offer excellent food at reasonable prices.

Very nice accommodation in the heart of Vienna. I stayed at the Hotel Ambassador 2 days during the weekend.
All the major attractions are at walking distance and underground is very close (<2 minute walk).
A classical style hotel with classical furniture.
Rooms are spacious and clean. Large bathroom with all comforts.
I didn't try the restaurant so I cannot comment about it.

Stayed 4 nights at Ambassador. Couldn't ask for a better location - right in the middle of the shopping street. Room is large and clean. Furnitures are a bit dated. Fast free wifi which is great. There is construction going on at the hotel and on the second day we were woken at 730 am. But we were out most day so the noise did not really bother us. We had 3 meals at Nautilus Fischestaurant in Naschtmarkt approximately 20 walks from the hotel. Must try the fish soup and grilled octopus.
