              Extremely convenient for The Opera House and also close to the Lake. The restaurant was atmospheric. Lunch was excellent.

              Coffee making machine defeated us

              The excellent location and really good fish restaurant )))

              The location is excellent. great view from our room and enjoyed the balcony. staff helpful.

              Too bad the breakfast is so pricey, but good cafe's nearby. parking is not too far and you can unload the luggage at hotel before parking the car. internet a bit slow, but free!

              Comfortably appointed and ideal as a base for conducting business

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Good sized room, compact but good bathroom (my wife liked the fact that there was a good hair dryer). A good selection of restaurants in the neighbourhood. Hotel situated in a pleasant location close to the lake, but not on the lake so you don't pay a premium. The Ambassador is better value than its sister hotel, the Opera Hotel, on the other side of the road, which has a better lobby area.

              Breakfast is expensive - you can get a good breakfast at a self-service restaurant (Tidbits?) 100m from the hotel.

              The employees in all service areas of the hotel were friendly and exceptionally professional. The room was immaculate, close to the promenade of Lake Zürich, and safe for solo travellers. A nice added touch in the room - the Nespresso machine was appreciated and refilled daily! This hotel is a luxury class hotel surrounded by excellent restaurants, close to the metro that goes direct to the main train station and airport, and, within walking distance to all tourist sites. I would also recommend this hotel to business travellers given the quality of the facilities, convenience, and, attentiveness of hotel staff.

              The price of the buffet breakfast was rather pricey even for Zürich standards!

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The location & accommodation.

              The fact that breakfast is not included in the rates.

              Great hotel, the reception staff were particularly helpful. The inhouse restaurant was outstanding, we enjoyed a beautiful meal (the 20% off for guests helped as not cheap). Excellent location with the lake within one block and only two blocks to the railway station. It was a quick 20 min train direct to the airport.

              Good equipment and very clean. The location is near the lake and bus station, so it's easy to find and go out.

              The location. The staff at the front desk espicially since they let us in our room early after a long flight.

              Location lakeside is superb. The staff were superb, as generally was the whole hotel. Only minor matter is the observation that the en suite bathroom is very small with a shower over the bath.

              It was very nearby the Bellevue station, and the staff were very friendly and nice.

              This is a general comment about laundry in Switzerland and not about the hotel itself -- laundry is charged per article which then amounted to over $200 to do a very small load of laundry.
