About our hotel
The Ambassador hotel in Zurich's Seefeld district is part of the former Uto Castle, built in 1898 in neo-Baroque style. It is located directly opposite the opera house and not far from the busy Sächseläutenplatz - and thus at the pulse of the action. Our hotel offers a refined, informal ambience and lived sustainability in line with the motto "Cause we care".
