I have been staying at this hotel for almost 18 years. This is perhaps one of the nicest cleanest hotel in the heart of the city with quality of friendliness and assistance which the hotel staff offers to their guests. The hotel is only 5 minutes conveniently close to Stadelhoff train station which has direct trains from Zurich airport. The breakfast is superb and the hotel is close to the lake and Bellvue Platz, the center of many trams which take you easily every where in around the city. The old zurich town is 5 minutes away for evening strolls and large number of restaurants and clubs. Mr. Zehnder. the proprietor of the hotel is always available for any assistance needed. I strongly recommend this hotel to any one who visits this great city for ambiance, and quality of restful stay.

Room Tip: contact the hotel directly to get their special rates

It's an older style hotel, right beside the Opera House, a touch further from the lakeside and a few minutes from Zurich Stadelhofen suburban railway station. We found the staff attentive and accommodating from check in to out and the rooms quiet and comfortable, although the curtains don't keep out much light. Try the restaurant out and try their version of Zurcher Geschnetzeltes ... something of a Zurich specialty. The wait staff are energetic and interested, the Hotel Manager may well be about and for an added extra, Maurizio might be on duty: ci siamo divertiti signore.

Room Tip: Book through their website; you're more likely to get their deals than the booking sites

I loved the night I spent here. I was upgraded to a larger room and even though it was on the first floor it was very quiet. The staff was friendly and the hotel was only a 15 minute walk from downtown. There are lots of restaurants nearby and since I didn't want the French food on offer in the hotel restaurant, I went to the vegetarian cafe across the street (called Tidbits or something). This was ideal as it was self service so I didn't have to sit conspicuously for hours on my own waiting for my dinner. I went back for coffee the next morning and it was very empty and quiet. There is a very pleasant park along the river which is also peaceful. The hotel called me a cab and it arrived a bit early and it only took about 15 minutes to the get to the airport. In short, it was a seamless stay.

Thank you for your nice comment about our Hotel Ambassador. It is a pleasure to hear that you loved your stay in our hotel and that you appreciated the upgrade to a larger room. Due to our sound proofed windows it is quiet in all the rooms of our Hotel. Our Restaurant Opera has a French chef but we serve next to French food also a variety of local dishes, for example the “Sliced Veal Zurich Style”, and the cuisine is also well known for its excellent fish dishes. We are looking forward to welcome you once back with us.
