AN EXCELLENT AMBASSADOR FOR VIENNA!
The Ambassador has long been on my list of places to say. When I first saw it a good few years back it was certainly impressive - a Grande Dame who had seen better days but who had a sense of style that wouldn't go away. Since then, the 'noble rot' has long since disappeared and after the completion of a major renovation in 2001 the Ambassador reinvented itself and gained an air of confidence last seen when she was built in 1898...and extraordinarily, the current owners were born only a little further on in 1926.
It is boasts a splendid central location on the main shopping street but on a busy Summer's evening those with rooms directly overlooking Karntnerstrasse might find things a touch noisy with the windows wide open. That being said, the Ambassador's other side faces Neuer Markt, and a room here looking out on the Donnerbrunnen fountain would be lovely. I didn't get to eat in the restaurant but it has an good reputation and an open aspect allowing you to view the chefs at work. Past guests have included Lehár, Schumann, Marlene Dietrich, Nehru, Mark Twain , Roosevelt, Nehru and Josephine Baker - I' m sure they can't wait for you and me to sign in too! A grand stay assured!!
Unique Quality: Another of Vienna's Grande Dames! (with a recent facelift)
5 stars in the very centre
Hotel Ambassador is one of the best hotels in the very centre of Vienna.
In my opinion it does not look very special from OUTside (as you may see on my picture) BUT it looks great from INside with an excellent restaurant and bar .
Take a look at their excellent web-page in German and English !
Unique Quality: Hotel Ambassador is a 5star-hotel directely on Kaerntner Strasse and with a back-entrance at Neuer Markt ( seen on my pic )
Directions: Leave the subway at the Opera or Stephansplatz, this hotel is at about halfway of each of them.
When arriving by car, use the back-entrance, they have their own garage on Neuer Markt.
