        • Family with children
          9.6

          I stayed at the ema House with my wife and two daughters - 5 and 2. The hotel was great. We had a spacious suite - about 45 square meters - with a large living room and a large bedroom. The living room had a very nice view of the Limmat. We were supposed to stay for three nights but got stuck due to the Icelandic volcanic eruption and ended up staying for a week. The staff was wonderful, courteous and helfpful. The hotel is very close to the city centre. The numbers 11 and 14 tram stops are literally right across the street and it is two stops to the main railway station and another stop to Bahnhofstrasse which is the main shopping thoroughfare.

          Nothing really. The only thing that might be an issue for some people is the lack of a cooked breakfast. The continental style breakfast consists of bread, croissants, selections of cold cuts and cheeses, juice, coffee and hot chocolate. However this is served in the room which had a dining table for four with shiny crockery and cutlery. The quantity was huge and we had a lot left over everyday. The room service was excellent.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Our stay was pleasant, and the breakfasts delivered to our room each morning were excellent and plentiful, with enough extra rolls, cheese etc. to pack a snack for the day's travels. Though the setting seemed a bit industrial at first — with busy streets, tram tracks and long bleak steps down to the waterfront level — we soon warmed to its convenient location. We bought 24 hr. Tram passes from the front desk and could tour the city with ease. Walking back from lunch at "Lucy's Stomach Supplies", a wonderful organic restaurant a few blocks southwest of the train station, we happened onto a beautiful park that meandered along the hillside straight back to ema. Nearby White Elephant Thai restaurant was great!

          Though ingenious Swiss design provides many efficient, well-executed conveniences (especially in the bathroom) the general appearance lacks warmth. We figured it was intended to appeal to financial professionals in Zurich on business, as the suites are designed to look and feel like bank vaults. The "L"-shaped door handles and odd hexagonal knob on a brushed metal plate centered on the dark dray door resemble a combination safe. And the mechanical metal blinds mounted outside the windows that can be lowered and closed completely reinforce the feeling of being in a vault. The front desk staff was more curt than courteous. They acted disinterested, occasionally condescending, and did not make us feel welcomed.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          This hotel exceeded my expectations. The room was large, and well appointed. Note that we received an upgrade, totally unexpected. The staff were very helpful in checking us in and spoke English. The breakfast service next morning was a pleasant surprise in terms of the delivery to the room and the variety and quantity of food available. The hotel is within walking distance of the main train station in Zurich and there is a tram stop (11 or 14) just across the street from the hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here again. It was a very enjoyable stay at the end of my holiday

        • Family with children

          Room is clean. Besides, there electric micro ovem for simple cooking. It is very good for family to stay at this hotel.

        • Single
          10.0

          This was my 2nd stay at ema House and they were very welcoming on my return. The rooms are large, free tea/coffee, free mineral water, a minbar, ironing board, video. The internet is charged for but reasonably so. It's only two tram stops from the main station and you can be at the airport in 25 minutes with 1 change of tram for chf3.20. The breakfast is really good and you don't need to add any extras.

        • Single
          10.0

          The location is really convenient to the Zurich main train station (10 minutes walk). The lady at reception was very friendly. I was lucky to be upgraded to a very, very large and comfortable suite. Tea/coffee facilities, iPod dock, dressing robe and slippers, and an iron & ironing board, were all supplied in the room. There was a large clean bathroom, with a separate bath and shower. The room had large windows looking to very green trees. Breakfast is included and is delivered to your room as a standard service, was is very nice and makes it easier to prepare for your day. The standard break is very filling and includes cereals, some fresh diced fruit, slices of meats/cheese, bread/pastries, juice and tea/coffee.

          I was staying as a single traveller, but even though I was given a very, very large and comfortable suite with a double bed, I was only given one small towel, one pillow, and a doona that seemed too small for the bed. But overall a very comfortable place to stay.

        • Single
          8.8

          A clean, well-run, spacious hotel with a friendly staff. A big cold breakfast is served in the room each morning. Nice bathrooms and amenities. It's right by a tram stop. It's good value for money, considering the cost of hotels in Zurich.

          The hotel charges for internet use -- and it's expensive. If you're in Zurich for business like I was, this is annoying and unhelpful. Also, be aware: I was upgraded to a big suite, which was lovely. However, when you're upgraded, the kitchenette is locked up, so that you can't use it unless you pay extra. This struck me as stingy.

        • Single
          5.4

          This is not really a hotel but a serviced apartment. The only thing good is the space - you get loads of it. The decor is a bit dated and the beds are really uncomfortable. It's pricy for what you get but Zurich is an expensive place to visit by any account. The breakfast is brought to your room which is a nice touch.

          The price, the uncomfortable bed, the location (although quite close to centre there is not much of note around the hotel like shops and restaurants).

          location & spacious room

          There wasn't an any mention about the fact that we won't be able to use a kitchen unit, unless we pay an extra.

          9.6

          Great location, close to main station. The room is very clean and the hotel staff was very helpful and friendly.

          Not many restaurants in the area. The door of the room we stayed in was a bit hard to open, was jammed sometimes.

        • Couple
          9.6

          Breakfast was plentiful, varied and delivered to your room. Great shower and very helpful staff. Comfy bed. Very close to tram stop.

          Lack of staff in the evening

        • Single
          8.8

          Very friendly and helpful staff and pretty good value as everything in Zurich is so expensive. I was given a huge room which was very quiet and airconditioned.

          The location is a little out of the centre, limiting your restaurant options, but the tram stop is just outside and will get you to the town centre in 10 minutes.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          Feel this could be very unique category of the hotel with all suite rooms at the reasonable price. It is located near from Bekenhof tram station(2nd from Central station). The room is extremely well furnished with very modern atmosphere.

          No hotel staff is available after 2100.
