“Overpriced, don't expect to sleep in late”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Front desk receptionists were very good, friendly, and provided excellent customer service.
Room was clean.
Halls and room all smelled a bit of synthetic perfume. Best hotels use no perfume.
The elevator was broken. They said it's old and can't find parts and it needs to be rebooted (turn on and off) regularly to work!
Worst part -- room had only a think curtain so as soon as the sun rises you can get awoken by light and there's no way around it.
Lastly, way over priced. 200 Swiss Francs is simply too much for a small room and 1 "full" size bed.
Breakfast was good.
Overall experience was average.

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend a friend's wedding. The positives: friendly staff, large room, balcony with view of Lake Leman and Mont Blanc, centrally located between the Nyon train station and the city center, wonderful buffet breakfast (included in the rate). The Negatives: rather dated decor, two twins beds pushed together (although this is quite common in Europe). Overall, this is a nice hotel, well worth the rates, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the balcony and the view of Lake Leman.

The staff at the Ambassador were all very friendly. The room was cleaned extrememly well each day and the buffet breakfast was superb. No complaints at all.

The room we had (322) was at the top of the hotel looking out over the lake.

When we first came in the Hotel a man at the reception welcomed us lovely. We didn't ask for a special room just a "usual" room for the two of us. All the a Service-People were that kind and uncomlicated.
In about 5 minutes we were already in our Room.

I have to admit I'm not the biggest traveler in the word but it was as far the biggest room of my whole expirience...
Our room has been decorated in the mediteran way.. It was verry very lovely.
We were in a room directly at the street but I dind't hear a thing during the night, but maybe that's because I slept that well.

The highlights for me were the minibar, the tv channels (ca. 15 channels per language Deu/Fra/Ital/Engli/Por/..) the breakfast buffet and well the "town"( Your just a few footsteps away from the Shopping-Mail).

This was a stunning Weekend in a stunning hotel with a stunning town.
Have fun guys

Many of the rear facing rooms have balconies with outstanding views over Lac Leman and the mountains on the south shore. Room 101 has a giant patio big enough for a good size cocktail party. The carpets are well worn and the furniture is old but clean. Wireless internet is available inclusive in the steep 200 CHF room charge. There is also a PC in the back room to use. The place is quiet for a good night's sleep. Breakfast is basic European but adequate. The restaurant was closed during my visit. There are plently of restaurants nearby. The Location is only 200m from Nyon station.

What would otherwise be a charming hotel which we have used many times before, I must categorically fault it for its failure to honour a confirmed reservation in writing, and for management being singularly rude in failing to make good on its error by assisting in finding alternate accommodation. A very black mark indeed.
