We enjoyed our recent 2 night stay in a standard room at Hotel Ambassador Opera. The service on arrival was very welcoming after our long flight from Canada. The hotel is well located just outside the old town area and immediately adjacent to the Opera House. It is only a relatively short walk to many of the surrounding tourist attractions...

We arrived by train from Basel and took a taxi to the hotel from the main train station. It was a very short drive and well worth the price because it'd be too long a walk from this arrival point, and with luggage probably too inconvenient on public transport. Our room was not ready but we were told it would...

Really enjoyed our stay there. Great location, albeit with nearby construction :( . It helped to be so close to the train station. Cleanliness was acceptable but not stellar. There was a large dead mosquito on the shower wall and the shower fixture required some re-adjusting. But the bed was very comfortable and the best part was the warm, friendly...

This is a small hotel in a very convenient location, being directly behind the opera house. My room was on the fifth, uppermost, floor and was quiet, spotlessly clean and nicely equipped with a comfortable bed, excellent pillows and duvet and the now-typical Nespresso coffee machine. The room size was fine for one person, but might be a bit cramped...

An excellent stay at an excellent hotel. The hotel offers a great location and provides an amazing 5th floor rooftop terrace with views of Zurich from which we celebrated New Year while watching the fireworks on the lake. The restaurant is exceptional for both breakfast and dinner and the staff made our stay special through catering to all our needs!
