This is a four star hotel but it is a member of the "Small Luxury Hotels of the World". It is a rather small and historic building well located in Zurich. Check-in was easy and friendly and an upgrade was awarded to me. The room was large and very well appointed, clean, bathrobe and slippers and nespresso as well as...

We spent only one night in this hotel. This boutique hotel is excellent and is just few steps away from the city center. We have booked Ambassador Double room and this was perfect.

On a spontaneous trip to Zurich with my two kids 8 and 6 years old, I chose the hotel after a rather quick search. Right from the first call to make my bookings to our entire 3 night stay the hotel was a very pleasant experience indeed. The title 'small luxury hotel' is very befitting. The room was very complete...

Make sure you join the Small Luxury Hotels loyalty club before you arrive. I speak from hindsight. I'm currently at another member hotel and I have discovered that I've missed out on benefits (like a free room upgrade) because I didn't know about this club. Apparently if I had joined before I got to the Ambassador I would have had...

I've had a chance to stay in this hotel many times when on my business trip in Zurich and I've always choose it because of a really convenient location in the city center next to Zurich Opera.

This is a small hotel in a perfect location about a block from the lake. Beautiful promenade along the lake. Rooms are quite nice, staff is friendly. Like many small hotels, the desk person acts as the concierge. Only average service in that regard. Nice restaurant and bar area, and great sidewalk tables for people-watching in Zurich (also for Lamborghini-watching...

This hotel is just across the street from the opera house and therefore quite easy to find even if there are language barriers.
