I'm picky but very happy!

I'm well traveled individual and VERY picky abt the place I stay.

I loved this hotel. 5 Starts for everything.
Amazing location by the river, stunning and stylish rooftop bar, beautiful and delicious breakfast and room was cozy and staff were gracious.

Most hotel golly designed for men and aminity for re women are hardly there for women guests. But this place did have items for women . Nice!

Some awesome restaurants near by, great riverbank to have night walk or jog, enough scooters available to easily rent by app.

It was perfect!

The room is small but well equipped with all quality bedding. Disappointed not to have electric kettle for a tea drinker as not everyone love coffee after all.

A Gem in the Opera District

We were greeted with champagne and helped by a delightful young woman who made our first experience in Zurich warm and welcoming. Rooms are unique, creative and comfortable and have many amenities. Ceilings are lofty and there are large windows with great views of the city. The beds were the best we experienced during our European vacation. Breakfast was also a highlight. Freshly baked breads, juices and nourishing smoothies. We especially looked forward to this part of our stay. The concierge services were amazing and helped us get the most out of our visit to Zurich … from suggesting several dining options to day excursions. Also, the Ambassador's location is very close to one of the train stops making it convenient to venture outside of the city. We visited the Felsenegg … a must see. The city is clean and safe and has much to offer. Thank you Ambassador for a memorable trip.

Great staff, great location, great small hotel

Arrived noon after an overnight flight from Boston. The staff quickly made up the room and allowed us to check in two/three hours early. Very much appreciated. The room with adjustable king bed was large, quiet, comfortable, and impeccably clean. The staff went out of its way to direct us to the city sights and recommended some excellent restaurants. The location was terrific, making the city conveniently walkable and very close to the S16 to/from the airport. Highly recommend the Ambassador

My Perfect Hotel!

If you want to enjoy your stay in Zurich you should definitely stay at this hotel! I am a regular customer of the Ambassador, and each trip to Zurich is made exceptional thanks to the staff of the hotel, their individual approach and a topnotch atmosphere. An unbeatable location, close to all amenities and sights!
I would like to recommend staying at the Mozart room with its breathtaking views over the Opera and the Square. It is very spacious yet cozy and stylish.
Everything is fantastic, keep up the good work and see you again soon!
Kind regards,
Vladimir Voznyuk

Our week in Zurich could not have been better. The hotel is perfect and the staff exceptional. After the journey the complementory welcome drink was a surprise and then it was suggested we take it up to the roof terrace and enjoy the view. What an amazing start to the holiday. It just carried on the whole week. Many thanks.
