A charming boutique hotel in an enviable setting opposite Zürich Opera House

Choose between a selection of delightful rooms, some with a balcony, or a spacious Executive Double Room. Each one has a different feel, decorated in soothing colours and are havens of comfort. Each room comes with a handy mobile phone to help you keep in touch with the world. Wake each morning to fresh coffee from your own Nespresso machine and take a short stroll along the lakeside before a hearty Swiss breakfast in Ambassador Zurich’s fabulous restaurant.

Head to the old part of Zürich to Augustinergasse, one of the city’s most beautiful old, narrow streets with colourful, painted oriel windows. Then visit St Peter's, with the largest clock face in Europe, Fraumünster with the Chagall windows and on to Bahnhofstrasse, the world-famous shopping precinct. Return to Ambassador Zurich Hotel to relax on the beautiful roof terrace, THE VIEW, with far-reaching views over the lake and Alps. Enjoy a glass of champagne in the lobby lounge before going to the opera or a night out on the town.


Enjoy your stay!

Short yet enjoyable stay.

We found out that this hotel was just recently renovated, so we got to enjoy the place in its newer form. Check-in was a breeze and staff were accommodating.

Elegant and modern hotel in perfect location

This hotel has the uptmost attention to detail. Ranging from the decor, to the room layouts, to including the mini fridge in your stay. Your stay at the Ambassador will be extremley memoreable. Additionally, the proximity to the train and the lake make the location unbeatable.

We had a wonderful stay at the Small Luxury Ambassador Hotel in Zurich, Switzerland. All the hotel staff were great. Manwella at the front desk is a definite asset for the hotel. She not only likes her job but loves the people she meets, she has a way about her that makes one feel like she really cares Read more[SPLIT]Read lessabout them. She recommended an excellent restaurant only a 7 minute walk from the hotel. Our hotel room was large with a balcony and a view of the lake as well as the Opera House. Breakfast was good and the hotel was the perfect location, for walking along the lake, in Old Town, Bahnhofstrasse, as well as close to trams and the train which we took to Zurich airport. So convenient, look forward to returning. The Ambassador will be our definite choice for all future visits to Zurich.

Great hospitality, great location, excellent restaurant and wonderful staff. Certainly, my tours with the hotel’s private driving service and especially Antonio who is a wonderful companion and really knows the area as well as most of Europe. The trip to Mount Pilatus was a noteworthy experience and Read more[SPLIT]Read lessprovided some great opportunities with stunning photography. The Rhine Falls and Stein-am-Rhein we’re also wonderful . But the city is so manageable for a tourist, so friendly and so spectacularly historic that every day was a pleasure.

Excellent service at perfect location

We are returning guests, appreciating the hotel for its excellent location (central, very fast connection to the airport via S-train, next to Zürich lake and the opera house) and very friendly and professional staff. This time we attended the Zürich Operaball with a group of friends in some shared hotel Read more[SPLIT]Read lessrooms - and all of us were granted a much needed and appreciated late checkout until 13:00 upon request, great service! Furthermore, we enjoyed a pre-arranged gala dinner in the restaurant of the hotel, both, food and wine selection were excellent. Only drawback were the comparatively small size of the suite and the mediocre toiletries (large dispensers instead of top notch articles) in the small-ish bathroom - we would really have expected better at this price and standard, thus 4 stars. All in all, however, we have had a great stay and will come back for our next visit to Zürich.

Swiss hospitality at perfect location

We (and friend and I) were welcomed very cordially by professional staff and the check-in experience was flawless and as individual as needed. Being a local in Zurich myself I used the hotel rather as a temporary bedroom if anything; the spacious beds (in superior plus rooms) are very comfortable, the Read more[SPLIT]Read lessrooms are tidy and I did not lack anything - Swiss hospitality at its best! Solely the Swiss pricing was a slight drawback. All in all we had a good stay at a perfect location, we can recommend the venue.

Wonderful little hotel

It's was the 3rd time we stayed at this lovely hotel. It's relatively small and the staff really makes you feel at home.
