          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Basic,comfortable hotel.Room nice and clean.Good continental breakfast,good coffee at breakfast.Free computer use in reception area. Lucerne is expensive so this hotel is relatively good value (over £200 sterling difference for the stay compared with a local 4 star hotel).

            Room tended to be rather hot (although there was a fan on the dressing table).Not told about swimming pool on arrival (available at sister hotel next door).No tea/coffee facilities in room which would be nice.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            Central location. Room was quite big for a family of 3. Friendly stuff speaking good english.

            Rooms facing the street are too noisy. You can even hear people talking on the streat at night. Isolation is very poor.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            I loved the big room for 3. Everything was fine and the personnel was friendly.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Very conviniently located near train station , lake and market. My phone in room was not working when I checked in, but hotel staff changed it after some follow-up. A rather blunt note for not making room floor wet could have been bit politely written. There was spider on my bed when I removed the cover.

            Breakfast could have been much better.

          • Single
            10.0

            The Ambassador had a great location, right near the famous Lion Monument and easy walking distance from the old town.

          • Couple
            7.0

            The location is perfect. Really close to shops and the lake.

            The room is incredibly hot. With no airconditioning and only a small desk fan.. the 'free WiFi throughout the hotel' is unavailable on the 6th floor, very disappointing. The laundry service is run through the reception, and the staff are very unmotivated to take your washing, which costs around 5 Franks a shirt. During breakfast we were hounded by staff asking for our room number and you feel very unwelcome.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            Location is nice and but hotel staffs are too mechanical.

          • Couple
            6.2

            Free internet and close to most shops.

            We had a double bed which consisted of two single beds joint together. The beds kept separating from each other.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Easy access to shopping street which is just the next block.

          • Couple
            8.8

            The continental breakfast was fresh and delicious. We enjoyed our balcony that overlooked the beautiful courtyard.

            The shower head is not stable, which allows water to spray outside of the stall. No air conditioner, but you can open windows. Balcony in our room was shared with the next room, which made privacy a concern, especially with open windows.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            We had a great time at the Ambassador in Luzern - location fantastic and the staff were very helpful and friendly!!!! Will defininetly visit again and recommend to other travellers!!!

          • Single
            6.6

            It is very well situated in the middle of the city.

            It's a bit noisy when you have a room facing the streetside and you want to open a window.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Pretty much everything

            The constant key exchange on the third floor

          • Group of friends
            4.6

            I didn't like anything about this hotel. It was sold as a three star and it defiantly wasn't. The rooms were clean but very outdated. There's no AC and the weather was great making the room very hot. The fan provided didn't do much. To access the reception area you havebto go up to the second floor. I was very disappointed with my stay.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            In commercial noisy area with no place to even temporarily stop a car near hotel to unload luggage. Hotel lobby on 2nd floor via elevator. Cumbersome at best. Parking in public garage 3 blocks away. Room nice size but very sparse. Felt much more like a overpriced 2 star than a 3.
