Hotel Ambassador
Ranked #40 of 67 Hotels in Lucerne
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We stayed for four nights using Lucerne as a base for day trips. The hotel is well located for the railway station and good supermarkets and shops are right next door.
Very informative and helpful staff, excellent breakfasts and overall good value for money in Switzerland.

We had booked Hotel de La Paix hotel but were upgraded to the next door sister hotel, Ambassador which we loved. The hotel is located steps away from the heart of all the action in Lucerne, however our room was very quiet. The only sounds we heard (which we enjoyed) were the sounds of singing birds and church bells. After a day of walking we enjoyed relaxing by the open window which overlooked the courtyard. The room was very clean, spacious and bright and the bed and the bedding were very comfortable. We appreciated the convenience of an in room safe and bar fridge. The breakfast room was modern and the food was very good. When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner who graciously offered to park our car in the adjacent parking lot. After a long day of driving, we graciously accepted his kind gesture. The location of this hotel is in a safe location and is excellent for seeing all the sights and restaurants . Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the courtyard is bright and quiet.

thank you for your good and nice comment. We appreciate your feedback. It was a pleasure to park your car. Lovely rent a car. The Car Parking just next to our Hotel is very convenient (even it cost 25.-- per 24 hours). We hope you had a nice and safe return. Hopefully we can welcome you on another occasion.

With best Regards

We stayed here 2 nights on our recent trip through Switzerland, the location was great and the ladies at the reception always had a welcoming and genuine smile about them. The Breakfast was good with very generous hours and they allowed us to use the coffee machine through the entire day. We were there just before the Easter weekend, and my child had the privilege of being loaded with Easter candy by the staff.
The location is excellent, everything is within walking distance, and if you need to take the bus, the stop was right at the entrance.
The room was very clean, but a tad tiny for the 3 of us (2 adults and a five year old). One star is missing here because, our reservation included an extra bed which was never provided (we had extra bed ordered in all the hotels during our Europe trip and all hotels had it setup when we checked-in) and even though we reminded them, there was no follow up. To be fair, we also did not follow up on it later as the room would have been packed with beds without any space to move at all if the extra bed was added. Other factors more than made up for this.
Overall it was a very pleasant stay and I would stay there again.

thank you for your review and comments. Thank you for mentioning about the reservation procedure. We will look into the process. We sell only triple room for 3 Persons so should be the travel agent. However there must be a lack of communication within our systems and reservation. We love to hear that you have enjoyed your stay and who knows, maybe see you on another occasion. With best regards

We really enjoyed our stay. Staff very friendly & helpful, great location, rooms clean and a good size. Family room was great. And they gave us our welcome drink in our room when restaurant was busy (it was New Year's Eve). Above and beyond.

We stayed here 3 nights and the location was perfect for all Lucerne sights. The rooms were spotless and all the young ladies on reception were awesome in every way. Two of us are gluten and dairy free and they went out of there way to accommodate us which was greatly appreciated. If planning a trip yo a Lucerne well please consider staying here.

Thank you very much for your lovely comment. We are so glad you had enjoyed your stay again in our hotel Ambassdor. Indeed the new rooms have a very good feed-back from our clients. It seems the new matress are so comfortable that some of our clients nearly miss the breakfast which ends at 11 am... We hope you will have a good festive season and will be able to welcome you again in 2014.

The hotel is located 2 bus stops away from the main station or say about 5-10 mins walk. The view from the hotel is not great as it is surrounded by buildings. If you looking out for a good view I would suggest a hotel near the lucerne lake. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was great. Rooms are fairly big with all modern amenities like Refrigerator, TV and heater. Overall a good value for money.
