The Review

Right across from the Zurich opera house and within walking distance of almost anything you’d want to do while you’re in the city, the Ambassador is ideally situated no matter what your travel plans.

The view from the hotels roof terrace is spectacular – make sure  you take Friday’s welcome drinks while you enjoy the panoramic view of the city, the verdant hills and the deep blue of the lake.
At the Ambassador you’re really in the heart of Zurich, no matter your taste in activities. Take in a performance at the opera house, walk to the famous galleries and museums or indulge yourself at
the exclusive boutiques on Bahnhofstrasse. The tram stops just around the corner and direct trains to the airport are only 20 minutes. Go for a stroll along the lake shore or get the concierge to
arrange a delicious picnic lunch to enjoy in the nearby parks.

After a long day relax in the generous classically-designed rooms or the relaxing, intimate hotel restaurant-cum-bar over a drink. Choose your pillow from the pillow menu for a perfect night’s
sleep. If you happen to wake up at night and require a midnight snack the indulgent complimentary Swiss chocolates are to die for. If you ask the maid nicely she’ll even sort you out with an extra chocolate under your pillow when you turn in for the night.

For those of us who like to sleep in on the weekend, don’t worry about missing breakfast. A clever agreement with the hotel across the road means that you indulge yourself with the delicious breakfast buffet until lunchtime.
