Hotel Ambassador Nyon

Macaron Quartet: My home away from home. Gorgeous views, over-the-top service, and a great restaurant.

Just to the north of Geneva is the tiny town of Nyon and one of the headquarters of my company. While on my last trip, I was treated to the privaledge of staying four nights at the new Hotel Ambassador. The hotel is perfectly located in the middle of the town, on the top of a hill so that it offers lake and castle views and if you plan dinner right, you don’t have to hike back up a hill at the end of the night. It’s also about a five minute walk from the train station. Lovely.

The staff was accommodating with breakfasts, coffees on the run, and even opened a bottle of wine for us well after the bar was closed. Thank you to the kind team of the Ambassador; I look forward to my return next month.

The rooms were spacious and featured a calming neutral palette all of which were refreshing compared to some of the more dated hotels in the area.

A small desk offered a tiny (mostly empty) fridge and electrical plugs that suited appliances from across the globe. Tiny victory!

There was also a decently sized closet and luggage nook. Lacking was an iron and ironing board that had to be requested from the front desk as the hotel only has one for guests to share!

The bath was sparse, but suitable.

And while the shower didn’t look like much, the water pressure was intense and divine for a really nice wake-up. Also really nice was a full shower and not a half wall of a bath tub to flood the whole bathroom.

Did I mention the view from my balcony was of the lake and a castle?!? My head about exploded with romance when I saw this. Insert full moon here. My only qualm was that I had to go to work and couldn’t drink wine outside all night, taking in the view.

A bientot, Hotel Ambassador!
