Nice boutique hotel close to the Opera and the Bellevue square, delicious breakfast? We just found it a bit confusing to have to use the public parking in theneighbourhood (thehotel does not have theirown) but itwas in the end close enough and very very easy.

Friendly staff, gorgeous view of the city from the roof top, nice restaurant. Good price in a pricey city. It is also a short walk to the train station, which makes it convenient. We also liked the fact that we could watch BBC or CNN in English. Woo Hoo!

My boyfriend and I took a short trip to Zurich and stayed here. The hotel is very convenient because it is literally down the road from the train station. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from old town and the shopping district. Overall I would say this hotel is in a great location.

We stayed a few nights in the hotel prior to departing on a cruise. Our requirements were a nice, above average, small hotel close to Lake Zurich and walking distance from the city center. This hotel exceeded our expectations. Service was excellent and the room was perfect for what we needed. Smaller in size but well designed for an older...

The Ambassador l' Opera is an absolutely lovely hotel - nice clean rooms, well stocked bathroom supplies (even washcloths!), very comfortable bed/pillows, great location, free wifi in the room, wonderful cocktail hour on the roof with an incredible view of the city and the greatest staff who were always pleased to offer any type of assistance needed.

This is an excellent hotel in a great location. Situated just behind the Opera House, it is very convenient to dining, shopping, and a nearby train station that connects to the Main station (Zurich SSB) in just a few minutes at the very next stop. This was very convenient to hopping the train to other cities for day trips. The...

This is a lovely hotel set in the heart of Zurich just by the Opera. We stayed for two nights as a couple and were made very welcome by their staff. Slight hiccup on the first night as I messed around with the electric bed just before bedtime and it must have had a loose wire as they couldn't fix...
