    Very good

    The people who work at the hotel was great. The location is nice, near to the train station and near to the gornergrat station. The breakfast was very nice.

    The room was old. It needs a reformation (upgrade).

    I made a reservation at the ambassador for one night then med a separate o One night earlier and got a confirmation of booking. When we arrived they had not received our booking and we had no room. It is apparent that Booked.net did not reserve the earlier night. The hotel was gracious enough to help us find a room at the hotel Miraboux. It was a far finer hotel with both service and accommodations. And the food was exceptional.

    Very good

    Place was clean and staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Booked a double room and on arrival was told that we were given an upgrade to an apartment. However, once we got to the room, we found that we had been given two single beds. Given the amount of money we paid, only to be given two single beds ... I was not impressed at all.

    Fabulous pool

    the decor of the rooms was tired and breakfast was very uninsipiring. Also, no cleaning of the room during the week, apparenlty it needs to be requested (!?!)

    The staff, esecially Bea (front desk), Zora (front desk), Dragana(lounge) & Willy (Piano player). These individuals were exceptional, with superb people skills. My room was on the top floor and I had an excellent view of the Matterhorn. The hotel is in close proximity to the downtown area and places of interest. An easy stroll to restaurants and entertainment. Upon my departure, it had snowed heavily that night and the next morning it was still snowing. The train station is close but nevertheless, Bea had arranged for free transportation from the hotel, which was a very nice touch. I have already recommended the hotel to my friends and the travel people who helped me with my booking in Zurich.

    It may need some remodelling but I have nothing adverse to say. I would return to this hotel if I ever visit Zermatt in the future.

    Good

    Great location: easy walk to the station and ski bus, restaurants and bars. Good free wifi coverage.

    For a 4* hotel at over CHF 500 per night, the room was old-fashioned and tired (brown flower tiles in the bathroom, disused kitchenette area). This is a big hotel that markets its spa - but the sauna is no where near big enough for the number of rooms.
