“Good accommodation just away from the Centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Good quality hotel just 15 minutes by tram from the City Centre. The room was clean and well appointed with coffee maker, iron, widescreen TV and free wifi.

Location is in a residential street close to the Sihl City shopping and leisure area.

Breakfast was included in the price and provided a good selection of hot and cold food.

Would have no hesitation revisiting.

I've stayed here several times on business. My observations are as follows: the rooms are ok - not large but they are clean. The beds are more comfortable than many Swiss hotels, most of which have very hard mattresses in my experience. Nice to have a balcony and some way of getting fresh air in the rooms. There are several English tv channels...many hotels just have news channels in English which isn't great after a day in the office when you just want to relax.

Nice to have a large bottle of mineral water free and the chocolate in the pillow. Talking of pillows, as another reviewer has said, they are woefully thin. Even taking the additional one out of the closet, they're not enough. The duvet is also very thin though I've never felt cold. Room service is ok....not much of a choice though. The people have always been friendly and helpful.

I'm not a fan of the opaque sliding bathroom doors. Ok if you're there in your own but not if you're with a partner...nobody wants to be seen doing the usual bathroom things, even through fuzzy glass! Toiletries are a bit basic....shower/shower gel in a dispenser in the shower. Hair dryer works ok and there's an iron and a weird table top ironing board which is useless for ironing more than a handkerchief.....took me ages to press a dress.

I've never eaten breakfast there - I prefer another 15 mins in bed. Check in and out processes work well.

Location good for Sihlcity shopping center but not close to the lake....a good 25 or more minute walk. About 30 minutes to the airport via train from nearby Binz station, via the zurich main station.

All in all, it's ok but expensive - as all Swiss hotels are - for the space and facilities.

Our party of four booked two rooms for two nights. After checking in the lady invited us in for the end of a buffet breakfast. We had fruit and coffee and were presented with a bill for $104.00! Having no choice but to sign the tab we felt sure the management would rectify the bill. We did not eat again the rest of our stay. We explained to the desk clerk that we did not eat there but that one morning and she was very uncooperative and said we must pay the bill! So my advice to travelers is find a nice hotel that treats it's guests fairly! The advertisement of a free breakfast is false. We stayed two nights and got no free breakfast!

Engimatt, Manager at Hotel Engimatt, responded to this review, January 31, 2014
Thank you for your comment you left here and on other portals. As already mentioned our rates do include the breakfast during the stay but as in every hotel worldwide not on the arrival day. Since you have decided to serve yourself from our breakfast buffet this has been charged accordingly. We do not check what our guest take from the buffet. But Coffee and croissants are served à la carte in the bar/lobby area during breakfast time.

The hotel had nice, spaceous, clean rooms with good beds and an own Nespresso machine. Breakfast buffet was nice. Located in a quiet neigborhood very close to a train station. I will stay there again on my next business trip to Zurich.

I stayed 4 days at Engimatt. The hotel was very lovely and friendly. Everything was marvelously neat and clean, the staff were very friendly and kind, and all in all I enjoyed everything. My only problem there was the bed and pillow which were to soft for me.

I stayed here for one night on business and was severely unimpressed; I recommend to avoid at all costs.

Pros:
It was clean.

Cons:
Very uncomfortable bed
Terrible pillows
Rubbish, scratchy towels
Not many toiletries, didn't even have proper shampoo in the room
CHF 270 per night for the above

Room Tip: Assuming all the rooms have the same uncomfortable beds and rubbish pillows, I recommend you stay so...
