Hotel Ambassador
Ranked #9 of 13 Hotels in Solothurn
Reviewed 31 August 2012

I came to Solothurn for business and stayed at the ambassador hotel for 2 weeks.
Although the rooms are small they are comfortable. Expect the bathrooms to be small but useable.
This is an old building like most in Solothurn and has no air conditioning. Which made some days a little uncomfortable as the summer temperatures were insult high for Switzerland.
The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Their English is great as my Swiss German does not exist. Happy for me to check in early after long haul from Adelaide and willing to offer advise where to eat and what to see in leisure time.
Ask reception about discount vouchers for boat trip to Biel.
Would stay again if a return visit happens

This is a cosy, family run place almost just opposite the railway station, and in a small town like Solothurn, this is about as central as you can get. The atmosphere is pleasant, the breakfast is wholesome and there is ample free parking at the rear, which was a main selling point. The downside I felt was that for the facilities on offer, the tariff was still relatively on the higher side.

Room Tip: make sure you go for a drink in the top floor bar at the nearby Ramada...amazing views, with no pric...

Finding the hotel from my train arrival was a piece of cake. Walk out of the station and cross the road.

The whole feel of the hotel is cosy. Cost reception, cosy rooms. Staff were friendly and polite.

My room was basic and very livable. I just needed to sleep in this room and it would be too small for a full day of office working.

A highlight for me was the room key control system. See the picture and enjoy. It gives control of the keys and indication of whom is in and out.

There is internet in the hotel which worked OK for web browsing. I was unable to connect to our office IP telephony system which I think was being blocked by the hotel firewall.

The hotel is convenient to supermarkets where I did some Swiss gift buying ie bulk chocolates.

I would stay at this hotel next time I am in Solothurn.

This hotel is comfortable and cosy, clean, the staff is very friendly and the hotel is conveniently located near the station and the altstadt. I only stayed for 1 night, but would have happily stayed here much longer. If I'm ever in Solothurn again, I will definetly stay here again.

Ambassador is a very nice cosy hotel in the heart of Solothurn.
The environment makes you feel at home with an amazing smiling team who'd go out of their way to make you feel even more comfortable.
