Great base for a long weekend in Zurich!
Reviewed 2 days ago

The Ambassador is a great boutique hotel with exceptionally friendly and welcoming staff - Marlene and Helena on the front desk deserve special mention for making guests feel right at home! The ambince and facilities are very good, though the bar area is a bit small and can get too full at times. The hotel is exceptionally well located near the lake and is most convenient for exploring the city on foot, as well as catching all public transport. It was a real pleasure to stay and we'll be back!

Nice hotel with one small issue keeping it from 5

Nice hotel located perfect for our meetings. And next to some really nice restaurants. The shower in my room did not function which were a bummer. Told the staff in the morning and they would alert maintenance- but did not change things for me. But nevertheless nice hotel - nice breakfast and nice staff.

Very Nice Hotel in Great Location
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Very friendly greeting on arrival by receptionist with a beer/wine/OJ. When I booked I was concerned that the location was a bit far from town but this was definitely not the case. The hotel overlooks the rear of the Zurich Opera House which fronts onto a large open area from which the centre of town extends. Overall Zurich seemed very expensive, however, in comparison to the other hotel prices I believe this hotel was good value, and breakfast was good too. We had two rooms and they were both very clean and tidy and with a good outlook. We had a slight issue on our departure given that the (other) receptionist seemed to have given the Airport Transfer a slightly incorrect time for pickup, however, there was only 15 minutes in it and we arrived at the airport in good time.

great choice in Zurich

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 coming direct from the airport and then leaving for Basel, changing at the main station;
Staff were excellent, the lady at reception served us cappuccinos and sat down and reviewed the map of Zurich and attractions, recommended the free walking tour which was outstanding.
She also got us into our room as soon as possible, flying overnight from North America you always arrive early and this was much appreciated.
Room was a good size, comfortable, with all the amenities – fridge, wifi etc; a bit dated with small bathroom and see through curtains.
The handy phone was a clever idea, basically a free phone to use while in the city, with good links to restaurants and attractions.
Breakfast, included for SLH members, was good; a standard continental breakfast.
I have no hesitation recommending this hotel and will look out for SLH hotels in the future.
