Will be back...
Lovely stay at the Ambassador, unlike most hotels in Geneva this one has a little more modern and better-kept feel about it. the Location from the Train station and the "center" is perfect. The night porter on arrival was very helpful, with information and processing my checking-in quickly after a long journey.

Great location, right on the river/lake. Transport in easy reach. Staff very helpful. It’s a shame there’s no restaurant at the moment.

8/10 Very good

The hotel is very well situated and the staff is very good. The room does not include breakfast. The main issue I had is that the room was hot due to the weather and very weak air conditioning.

4/10 Fair

Location is excellent. Staff attentive (possibly outnumbered the guests) No bar. No restaurant. I question the 4 star rating on that basis Breakfast at 24CHF? Starbucks is better.
