Having stayed at a EMA property before I had high expectations- and while it still delivers on location and space, certain things (WiFi/smartTV functions) were disappointing considering we pay nearly Chf 1000 for 3 nights. Glad we were not here on business this time - because these issues would have been totally unacceptable. I give 2/5 for tech/tv/WiFi issues and 5/5 for quality of room & location- so gave 4 out of 5. Positives: We stayed in the Executive Suite - which is like a large one bedroom apt with 1.5 baths. Great space. Large en-suite bathroom. Clean (though due to the season, we saw some dead river bugs on the floor by the window every morning.) Location- easy access to the Zurich HB station, not touristy Nice views of the Limmat river and Park Platzspitz. (It’s not the typical Zurich postcard view but that also makes it special) Room has options to use kitchen (for CHF25/day - we didn’t use but they allowed us to use few extra plates, glasses which we appreciated) Stocked with 6 Nespresso pods/day and array of teabags Good breakfast with nice strong coffee Negatives: I wish I didn’t have to mention but they were not resolved so I need to. Terrible WiFi/Smart TV experience. It kept saying “failed to load channels-please check internet connection” - when watching regular tv or Netflix. Forget about watching YouTube - (photo attached) it would go into a black screen loop. We got tired of spending time trying. We notify the management with picture of the screen and issues and Wi-Fi the first night we were there. They were Quick to respond saying some technician will come to resolve as soon as they can however NOTHING was resolved. WiFi dropped often - we brought our own speaker so we can listen to Spotify for music so this was annoying. We had no choice bc the Spotify feature on the [not-so] SmartTV didn’t even not work. No recognition of my husband’s birthday. Is that Swiss hospitality? USB charge ports at desk were not working - the ones in the bedroom worked but that’s not convenient if you want to do things on the desk. Again wrote them first day but never repaired. faux marble (tiles) are bit tacky for a 4star hotel.. Housekeeping Lacks coordination- first morning housekeeping knocked on door at 9:10am when our breakfast was specified for 9:30. one morning we had to ask for nespresso refills because the housekeeping never refilled them the day before. Didn’t get new tea bags after first day for the rest of the stay.. we didn’t bother asking anymore…these things should be restocked at a 4 star hotel without the guests inquiry!

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed in one of the suites in Nordstrasse, which is an amazing location. Short walk to the centre as well as the Niederdörfli where you can find lots of great bars and restaurants with plenty of seating outside. Also very close to the river, where you can go swimming and enjoy some cocktails in the bars alongside it. The accommodation was fantastic... very spacious, clean and modern. Lovely interior design, big and beautiful bathroom, amazing shower and huge bath tub, beautiful bedroom with an on-suite bathroom, super comfy bed as well as big windows so everything is really light. The air con is excellent... it was extremely hot when we visited Zurich but lovely and cool in our suite. There is also a tiny terrace and a well equipped kitchen (hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine...). We were able to park our car in the underground garage for 28 Swiss Franks for 24 hours. The ladies who worked behind reception were super friendly and helpful. We felt welcome and well looked after. I would def stay there again if I went back to Zurich. Also it was only a 15 minute drive to the airport, which we found very convenient as one of us had to catch a flight the next day.

Dear 983denise, Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us. We appreciate that you felt comfortable at the EMA House Hotel Suites and that our service exceeded your expectations. Our air condition is indeed a real asset during the hot summer months. We are alsoe very happy to read that you have took a swim in the Limmat River right next to our hotel. It is very common in Zürich to refresh yourself in the water and get a drink after. We would be happy to have such satisfied guests coming back to the EMA House Hotel Suites.

We stayed in a suite for a week which was not much more expensive than a room. It was spacious and well appointed. The staff (desk and cleaning) were helpful and friendly- and cleaned our room at our convenience, rather than theirs,. The view from our window- city/river/mountains was wonderful. Less than a 10 minute walk from the train station- close to parks and walks along the river. We did not want to pay extra for the kitchen, since we ate all our meals with our family, but when we requested, they supplied us with a few breakfast bowls and spoons.

Naomi L, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your EMA House Hotel Suites experience with us. We are delighted our services did meet your expectations and you enjoyed your family visit in Zürich. Our central but residential location and the view overlooking the Limmat river and the Üetliberg are indeed assets of staying with us. We understand that not every traveler wants to use the kitchen during their stay. For that reason, we provide multiple rate plans with and without kitchen use to our customers. Even if you have booked your Executive Suite without kitchen you are still able to add this option with extra costs. Our intention is to leave the choice to our customers according to their wishes to create a customized and valuable experience. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back to EMA House Hotel Suites during a future stay in Zürich. Jonathan Anthamatten, General Manager

I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of accommodation and the high quality staff at the EMA House. I stayed at the hotel in a junior suite with my two young children and found the accommodation - space, furnishing and set up perfect. I could not recommend the hotel enough to families looking for a great city break.
