With its unique location in the heart of Zurich,Small Luxury Ambassador has charmed guests for many years. The old town, the world-famous Bahnhofstrasse, the renowned Opera House, and the train station Stadelhofen with direct Airport link within 16 minutes are all just a few steps away. The privately owned boutique hotel in Zurich's Seefeld district is part of the former Uto Castle, which was built in 1898 in the neo-baroque style, and its unique roof terrace "THE VIEW" offers guests an exclusive retreat with breathtaking views of the Alps and Lake Zurich. The 45 comfortable and very individual hotel rooms, with complimentary WiFi and many other high-quality amenities, make for a memorable and eventful stay in Zurich. The electronically adjustable beds in all the rooms round off the hotel's offering and guarantee guests optimum relaxation coupled with a luxurious and restful night's sleep. The Restaurant Opera is a true haven of culinary delights.

Dear andrew9876 Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. Your kind words are very much appreciated! It is great to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Small Luxury Hotel Ambassador and you liked our ambience and facilities. Concerning your comment about the size of the bar area.

However, if you feel like there is not enough room, you are more than welcome in our restaurant, the Restaurant Opera, to sit and enjoy a drink. We are looking forward to welcome you back in Zürich soon. Kind regards, Michael Böhler, General Manager

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

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

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

Dear bruce14 Thank you very much for your review. The Small Luxury Hotel Ambassador Zurich is indeed just a few minutes walk away from public transport opporunities. We really appreciate your kind words, which will certainly be shared with the team. Our hotel is a charming historic building which can also be seen in our rooms. Nevertheless, we keep updating and renovating in order to offer our guests a high standard of living. Apart from curtains, every room is equipped with window blinds. The reception is always there if you need any assistance with blacking out your room. It is great you enjoyed your stay and our breakfast buffet, in which we put a lot of effort. We already look forward to welcome you again in beautiful Zurich. Kind regards, Michael Böhler, General Manager

I did not take the train, but it's about 16 minutes. You'll want to go to the Stadelohofen train station, as its the closest station to the hotel.

Is this a quiet hotel? I don't want to be around any bars or night clubs. Thank you
Hi Jacqueline, it is a quiet hotel. While the lake/waterfront is only a few minutes away and there are a small number of local restaurants, the hotel's surroundings and immediate environment are low key with no visible 'rowdy' bars or nightclubs.
