Hotel Ambassador

Rated 8.5 in 5565 reviews. 61 rooms.


„Situated in the finest part of the city, and provided with all modern comforts“ - This was the wording of the advertisement placed by the hotel, under the name of the "Hotel Krantz“, in the Wiener Zeitung, issue number 127, on Saturday 4th June 1898. The description we gave of ourselves then, still fits today.

With its more than 100 year old history, the Ambassador can designate itself as one of the richest buildings in the city in terms of tradition. And not just in respect of its function as a hotel. The Ambassador has been welcoming people over the course of the decades in a wide variety of functions, and under different names. The range of its uses extends from a private house, to its use as an exclusive ballroom for the highest echelons of Vienna society, from a concert hall to the finest of hotels.

The luxurious Hotel Ambassador is located on the Kärntner Straße shopping street in the centre of Vienna, just 200 metres from the Stephansplatz and Karlsplatz Underground Stations. It offers a restaurant and free WiFi.

Opened in 1898, the Ambassador Hotel has hosted famous guests such as Marlene Dietrich and Mark Twain. It is within a short walking distance from major sights such as St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Hofburg Imperial Palace, and the State Opera.

Hotel Ambassador’s spacious and elegant rooms are individually decorated with select antiquities. They include adjustable air conditioning, satellite TV, a minibar, and a safe.

The restaurant serves Austrian cuisine and seasonal dishes. The winter garden overlooks the historic Neuer Markt square. The atrium bar serves cocktails, coffee and snacks. In summer, guests can relax in the open-air café on Kärntner Straße.

The Hofburg Congress and Event Centre is a 10-minute walk away.
