Value hotel centrally located, ca 100 m from the lake shore with a great view for rooms in that direction, overlooking the train station and adjacent to the bus station. Simple, functional rooms testament to the high quality furniture originally used - perhaps from the 70/80s, yet very well kept. Bathroom functional, all clean. Reception is on the 1st floor... More

A very nice hotel, though it is located very close to rail station. You will feel a bit shaking when a train passes through.. A strange thing happened when the hotel staff accidentally open my room when I was in..

On the plus side, this hotel is very conveniently and centrally located within one minute's walk of the rail station. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean. However, the railway side rooms are very noisy, albeit the hotel provides earplugs to help address this problem. Our room was located directly above the kitchen, and although it was... More

I recently stayed at Hotel Engel as part of a business trip to Waedenswil. Our normal company hotel was fully booked and so we needed to find an alternative. Hotel Engel offers clean basic rooms in the centre of the town with many rooms overlooking Zurichsee. The main issue with this hotel is that the rooms overlooking the lake are... More

this is a nice friendly little hotel. If you're lucky and get a lake-side room, you will have a beautiful view over Zurich Lake. I wasn't lucky. The room I stayed in was quite large, with most of the storm and everything), it never really cooled. The breakfast room has a nice veiw over the lake, but is a bit... More

Stayed here for 4 nights when the hubby was in Zurich for a business trip and I tagged along. The room we had were on the top floor with lake view which is gorgeous.

I stayed at the Hotel Engel for three nights during my holiday in July 2013. I had booked one of the newly renovated double rooms for single use directly through the hotel, and my reservation was handled expertly. The room was bright and comfortable, but on a warm and muggy summer's day it could do with a fan. The bathroom... More

Located along the shore of Zurigo lake (but railway separates the hotel from the lake), the hotel is provided of wide, comfortable and clean rooms. The absence of a small refrigerator in the room is a lack for this level of hotel. Conversely WiFi free internet is a value. Breakfast is rich and sufficiently diversified, served on a terrace on...

Together with my family we booked four rooms here for almost a week. The hotel is a decent, clean three star but be prepared to pay dearly. At this hotel level, anywhere outside of Switzerland you would spend half of what they charge here. I suspect the prices are this high also because the hotel probably caters to business travellers...
