Ambassador Hotel in Zürich
OK, so let's start out by saying we've been going to the Ambassador (and its sister hotel across the the street, L'Opera) for about 10 years now. Both hotels have always been clean, nice, reasonably priced (for Zürich!) and in a great location close to the Bellevue tram station. They are also about a 5 minute walk to the lake and the bridge crossing over the Zürich river.
