“Long overdue praise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Zurich, as other reviewers have noted, is an expensive city. EMA House is very reasonably priced, spacious and welcoming. We have over 6 years stayed there on and off with young twins. The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff helpful and welcoming. This is not a conventional hotel but a place to relax, sleep well and enjoy home conveniences, for example, laundry and drying room. No expensive hotel charges for these or fridge, stove etc. Also great for business travellers and most 'un-Swiss' in its welcome.
Thank you! Sue,Susan & children

Thank you for the flowers!
For every hotel manager it is a privilege to have guests like these very valued patrons, who are regularly returning to their home away from home. The entire EMA house team is looking forward to welcome all of you soon again.

I booked this hotel last minute (the night before our stay) and got a really good deal. We were really impressed with the size of the room and all the amenities provided. They had a great bath tub with a separate shower which was nice. Location was very convenient, just two stops on the tram from the central train station, and easily walkable. Our only complaints were the carpet had stains on it and I think the only English channel on the telly was MTV.

The staff is wonderful ! All emails prior to my arrival were answered promptly and were very informative.
The apartment style unit was perfect for my week in Zurich. Very clean and comfortable with excellent attention to detail.
The location of EMA was an easy walk to Old Town. There was a very short walk to public transportation if you prefer.
I would highly recommend this hotel for short or long stay.  I travel a great deal and would be delighted to stay at the EMA Classic Residential Suites in the future.  My sister stayed at the EMA All Suites and loved it too.  (The sites are only one street apart from each other.)
I was attending my daughters wedding in Zurich. EMA added greatly to our stay in Zurich.
Zurich is a gorgeous walkable waterfront city.....simply stunning! It truly is one of my favorite European cities.
Thank you so much!

We were travelling with our 2 year old, and we were driving. Here is what we liked:
1. Nice big apartment at a reasonable price (for Zurich!)
2. Parking close by.
3. Tram to town right at the door.
4. Quiet neighbourhood. If you want lots of bars and nightlife, book in town.

Negatives:
1. Slow elevators. This was probably a residential building.
2. Wifi problems when we were there.

We are currently staying at EMA House Classic Residential Suites - at EMA House All Suites Hotel. We chose this hotel because they offered 2 bedroom apartments that would accommodate 3 or 4 adults. We have been so impressed with the staff and the apartment. It is a good size with two bedrooms, one and a half baths, sitting area and kitchen area. The apt was very clean and well appointed with full size fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer, microwave and cook top. The location is great for exploring Zurich and beyond. We had an 8 day Swiss pass and used the train system extensively. This location was perfect, only a 10 minute walk to the rail station and about 15 minutes to the old town. The building with our apt was about a five minute walk from the main hotel. I highly recommend the EMA House Classic Residential Suites or the hotel for a stay in Zurich.

Stayed one night with family as needed to catch an early flight. The apartment was very large, clean and well maintained. The service was lovely and they bring your breakfast to your room at your requested time. They have a large range of English movies that you are able to choose from and even a washing machine and dryer that is free, you just have to bring your own detergent. Just a tip check the laundry before going to supermarket to purchase detergent as people leave unused portions in the laundry just as we did. Internet is available for a fee. It was a lovely hotel with great service. Because we were there very briefly it would have been nicer a slightly more convenient to stay within the old town area. There were trams available and the walk from the hotel was only about 15 to 20 mins.

The hotels rooms in the main EMA House property differ from their apartments (located a street away) but the look/feel of their rooms is very similar. The hotel is easy to find from central station (2 stops away) and is right across the Beckenhof tram stop. As a simplified option to the usual full-service hotels, the interior design of the hotel and rooms are austere/sparse but very clean. The separate bedroom was very spacious but comfortable and the main living area included a workstation, mini-bar and dining area to enjoy their nice complimentary in-room breakfast delivery service. WiFi access was a challenge (CHF 15/week) as connection timed-out frequently and was sporadic during most of our stay, unless accessing outside of the room in the stairway. Service at check-in/out was very friendly and all the attendants we spoke with were kind and helpful. The location is outside of the main city center but an easy walk/tram-ride to the main attractions. Overall, a simple and quiet, non-fuss, basic option away from the city noise, yet close enough to the primary tourist spots in Zurich.
