This cosy hotel in a quaint corner building overlooks the famous River Rhône where it joins Lake Leman in the heart of Geneva. Pleasant views compliment the Ambassador’s agreeable location.
Refined guest rooms with bold colour blasts feature flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and minibars. Many rooms afford lake/river views. Suites provide separate lounges and Nespresso machines.
Free Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the hotel. Parking is available for a charge (advanced booking required). Room service is offered.
Swiss and French cuisine is served in a charmingly ornate yet contemporary restaurant. There is also a street-side terrace with river views, and a casual lobby lounge. Numerous cafes, restaurants and bars are located close by.
The Ambassador is a seven-minute walk from Geneva train station and a ten-minute stroll from the revered Old Town.
If you get the option to book a room facing the river then by all means do so. Throwing back the curtains and feasting your eyes on the mighty Rhone and Lake Leman beyond is certainly a fine way to start your day. If you aren't lucky enough to score a room with a view then don't fret - you can always drink in the vistas from the restaurant's pleasant street-side terrace instead.
Very convenient location
The Ambassador's highly prized location in the heart of the city makes it a top choice for sightseeing on foot. Having a tram stop and a ferry/boat trip jetty within five-minutes' strolling time is a massive bonus too as it means you can explore the city without having to drive at all.
Accommodations are a good size.
It has to be said that a number of the guest rooms here are pretty spacious by central Geneva standards. The suites in particular offer a decent amount of square footage.
In-room air-conditioning isn't the best
Be wary when booking a room here in the summer; many guests have noted that the A/C units in guest accommodations provide two choices only: weak or absent.
Beware of the lift
Do yourself a favour and avoid the lift if you can help it - it's so small it is pretty much guaranteed to bring out any latent claustrophobia you may have hidden deep within you.
But that's about it
Take the tiny lift and sketchy air-con out of the equation and you'll see that, on the whole, the Ambassador is actually pretty adept at delivering largely enjoyable holiday experiences.
