            Getting there.

            The airport is located 10km north of Zurich. The airport is located at the centre of Switzerland's road network with excellent connections to cities, including Zurich, Bern, Basel and St Gallen on the A20. Trains run between Zurich’s main station and the airport every 10 minutes during peak periods (travel time: 10 minutes), and numerous inter-city and regional trains provide connections to all the main towns and cities in Switzerland. Frequent regional bus services depart from the airport bus terminal, which is located close to the main airport complex. The new Glattalbahn tram service (no. 10) provides new direct connections between the airport and the surrounding areas, plus the northern suburbs of Zurich city, including Irchel, Milchbuck, Zurich-Oerlikon and Glattpark. The no. 10 tram service departs from Oerlikon Ost station on its own dedicated line, so it never gets held up, even in peak periods. The hotel provides airport shuttles with your advance booking.

            Getting around.

            The Zurich main station is only 10 minutes away from the hotel with tram or train running in many directions(S-Bahn). City buses run routes from the nearby bus station five minutes from the hotel. In addition, Zürich Stadelhofen is few steps away from the hotel. All guests can park their cars at the on-site parking for CHF 34.00 per day.

              The location is excellent. great view from our room and enjoyed the balcony. staff helpful.

              Too bad the breakfast is so pricey, but good cafe's nearby. parking is not too far and you can unload the luggage at hotel before parking the car. internet a bit slow, but free!

              Good sized room, compact but good bathroom (my wife liked the fact that there was a good hair dryer). A good selection of restaurants in the neighbourhood. Hotel situated in a pleasant location close to the lake, but not on the lake so you don't pay a premium. The Ambassador is better value than its sister hotel, the Opera Hotel, on the other side of the road, which has a better lobby area.

              Breakfast is expensive - you can get a good breakfast at a self-service restaurant (Tidbits?) 100m from the hotel.

              The employees in all service areas of the hotel were friendly and exceptionally professional. The room was immaculate, close to the promenade of Lake Zürich, and safe for solo travellers. A nice added touch in the room - the Nespresso machine was appreciated and refilled daily! This hotel is a luxury class hotel surrounded by excellent restaurants, close to the metro that goes direct to the main train station and airport, and, within walking distance to all tourist sites. I would also recommend this hotel to business travellers given the quality of the facilities, convenience, and, attentiveness of hotel staff.

              The price of the buffet breakfast was rather pricey even for Zürich standards!

              The location & accommodation.

              The fact that breakfast is not included in the rates.

              Great hotel, the reception staff were particularly helpful. The inhouse restaurant was outstanding, we enjoyed a beautiful meal (the 20% off for guests helped as not cheap). Excellent location with the lake within one block and only two blocks to the railway station. It was a quick 20 min train direct to the airport.

              Good equipment and very clean. The location is near the lake and bus station, so it's easy to find and go out.

              The location. The staff at the front desk espicially since they let us in our room early after a long flight.

              Location lakeside is superb. The staff were superb, as generally was the whole hotel. Only minor matter is the observation that the en suite bathroom is very small with a shower over the bath.

              It was very nearby the Bellevue station, and the staff were very friendly and nice.

              This is a general comment about laundry in Switzerland and not about the hotel itself -- laundry is charged per article which then amounted to over $200 to do a very small load of laundry.
