... everyone gets a turn at sitting in the front, which in actual fact isn't always that crash hot, but you can imagine the confusion every morning, mostly by the older people. Dean, the chappie in charge, has to stand there at the door holding up his little diagram of where we all sit for the day. I think he's happy to do it as it means he's getting plenty of practice incase he ever gives up touring and opens a kindergarten... Me ...
... We stayed in a really nice central hostel, with the best kitchen yet, plus it had a washing machine - luxury! Only downside was the youngsters coming back at all hours of the night from their pub crawls, but the ear plugs helped. Prague came through WWII relatively unscathed and is a smorgasbord of amazing architecture from Gothic to Art Nouveau plus a few Soviet monoliths. The city is a visual feast of sights with the ...
... in others. I have a very new perspective on how the world works and how people live. It's important knowledge to have. Especially when the rest of the world believes Americans are egocentric, ignorant, and spoiled. It's kind of true, but it's up to us to experience other areas of the world so we can really appreciate what we have at home. If I ever go to a less developed nation; Africa or Asia? I think then, my eyes will open even more. ^^That was a long tangent of ...

The main attraction was the Giant Antique Ferrris Wheel which gives you a very slow ride, but has great views over the city. The kids also wanted to go one one of the whizzy rides.

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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
