    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ambassador Vienna

    A perfect Hotel


    My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 1 wk. We loved it . The room and bath were unusually large, beautifully furnished and the location was perfect. We were able to walk to everything. The staff couldn't have been any more helpful. When I go back to vienna I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

    Mozart's Vienna


    This was not our first trip to Europe but our first trip to Vienna and we loved it. I usually review trip advisor before we decide on a hotel... the Ambassador fits all the criteria: wonderful location - walking distance to most sights; the room was very large, delightfully decorated with a sitting room, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and a large modern bathroom. We did not opt for the breakfast(20 euros each) as there were many cafes close by more reasonably priced. Our day tour to Salzburg would not have been such a delightful experience if one of the hotel staff had not recommended Royal Tours (a small van group tour - maximum eight passengers). I will recommend the Ambassador to my friends and associates who opt for a Vienna experience. This is probably one of the best hotels I have stayed in Europe and hope to return in the near future.

    One of my Favorite Hotels in Europe


    I stay at the Hotel Ambassador every 4-6 months on business. I *love* it! The service is great, the rooms are stylish (plus have wonderful high ceilngs) and the central location is awesome. It has become one of my favorite hotels in Europe.

    My best Hotel Ambassador memory: a few years ago I was waking up on a lazy Sunday morning, as a breeze came through my open window and lay in bed listening to the sounds of a violinist on the Kartnerstrasse playing Mozart.

    Superb Hotel


    The Ambassador is a great hotel in a terrific location. The guest rooms are huge and well furnished. They, and the bathrooms, are immaculate. What's more, the staff at the front desk is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I could not have enjoyed my stay more.

    Great location, great hotel


    Perfect location walking distance from everywhere.

    Clean, spacious room with large bathroom.

    Business center with internet access at no charge.

    Nice breakfast included, gourmet restaraunt for dinner on site.

    Great choice, would stay there again

    A gem in the heart of Vienna


    I had a fantastic stay at the Ambassador during the first week of May for six days. The room was magnificent! It was large with beautiful hardwood floor and a large bathtub for soaking after a full day of excursion. The room was spotless, warm and welcoming. The breakfast buffet provided a large variety of items. During peak hours, however, there was a wait for tables to be cleaned and set. The hotel staff was friendly. The hotel was located about two blocks from St. Stephen's Cathedral, and within 10 minutes walk from most major sites. The only complaint I had was the noise from the street. People were partying until the wee hours of morning; then the noise from people coming to work early in the morning woke me up after a few hours of sleep. The hotel is within a hundred yards of a metro station and centrally located for everything. I definitely would return for my next visit to Vienna.

    Great hotel


    I really liked this boutique hotel. I stayed there in September. I was there for business and needed a room with a bigger desk and they switched me immediately. The front desk was great and very helpful. The rooms were really nice, big and nicely decorate. The staff did a great job cleaning. The restaurant was OK. I only had breakfast there and thought was an OK value for the price. The hotel is right around the corner from the Opera house and walking distance from Ring Strasse and museums. I plan on staying there again next time in Vienna.

    Hotel Ambassador - superb!


    We stayed at the Ambassador Hotel over the Christmas break 2001/2002 and it was superb. Whilst living in the UK, we travelled extensively throughout Europe and the Ambassador was by far one of the best deluxe hotels we stayed in. The rooms are big and gorgeous and the public areas are tasteful and relaxing. The hotel superbly fuses traditional architecture and furnishings with up-to-the minute touches and facilities. A fantastic location also meaning you can explore most of Vienna on foot.

    Quality hotel


    I have not stayed at the Ambassador but checked out a number of hotels for business associates coming to stay here. I felt that the Ambassador Hotel was one of the best - newly done up, with a degree of individualism and bigger rooms than the Intercontinental. Bar at the hotel is great - with great cocktail menu. Associates that stayed there loved there time there with ideal location if you need to stay centrally but not necessarily the quietest if you want to open the window.

    Only hotel you need


    Ambassador Hotel is the only hotel you need to consider. Location and rooms are excellent. The package prices make this hotel a great value, an OK value otherwise. I am an experienced world traveler.

    We arrived in Durnstein after only about 20mins. By comparison the cruise takes an hour to travel the same distance upstream, or only 30mins downstream. Yes, there's quite a fast current in the Danube!

    Had a quick look around the charming backstreets of Durnstein for a little while, found the high flood level for the 2002 and 2013 floods. Wow... a LOT of water must have been flowing down the river for it to rise so ...

    ... night. The church was beautiful, as was the music. The other activity we spent most of our short time in Vienna pursuing was the hunt for architecture. As I've said in previous entries, I have always enjoyed looking at a nice old or new building, but being in Europe has heightened my appreciation for the craftsmanship and design that goes into buildings. It is fascinating the things that influence the styles, and the styles themselves, how a Gothic or Baroque building ...

    ... with great views out across the

    are open for tasting over the weekends, but not on Fridays. We had
    hoped to have lunch up in the hills but everything seems to be only
    open at the weekends so we had a late lunch back at Nussdorf where
    the tram came in. We had a lot of time to kill so after our

    Tales from the Vienna Woods

    Today, we ventured out to the Vienna Woods. After the music festival yesterday, we felt that a day outside the city would be a nice change of pace. We took a subway to the end of the line, then caught a bus to the top of Leopoldsberg Hill. From there we could see the various branches of the Danube, the surrounding countryside, and the whole of Vienna. From the summit, we hiked down through the deciduous Vienna Woods to Kahlenberg, where we enjoyed coffee on a large ...

    So the touch team that Steph joined decided to enter in the annual touch tournament in Vienna at the beginning of May and we decided it would be a good opportunity to do our first European trip since arriving.

    As it was on a long weekend we decided to also take the Friday off work and make it a four day weekend. We arrived very late on the Thursday night after being delayed at Heathrow and our airbnb host was nice enough to wait ...
