Great hotel. Very big room, free 'wired' internet. Breakfast was great. Overall a really great experience & hotel. Only potential negative is it's a 20-25 minute walk to the old town or the new town (5th ave/madison ave) shopping district. However, the hotel is a few minute walk to the tram which will take you to either location in 10 minutes. Tram system is excellent in Zurich.

Would highly recommend the hotel.

Hotel will provide kosher breakfast at no additional charge - which was nice.

I chose Hotel Engimatt because of the reviews on trip advisor. Upon arriving at the hotel, my dad and I checked in and found that the air conditioner wasn't working. The room was quite stuffy as it is summer. We rang up about it and they told us to adjust the control, still didn't work. We were told that no one could come to fix it until the next day. They did not allow us to change rooms as the hotel was booked out. The following day we checked multiple times throughout the day about the air conditioning. Coming back to the hotel at 3pm we were told at the desk that the person who was meant to check it still hadn't checked his email so nothing had been done. A few minutes later they phoned to say he had and it was working fine. They offered to bring us a fan instead. I was confused, if the maintenance person hadn't responded, how could he had possibly checked it and said that it worked perfectly? Also if it was working so well, why would you need a fan? That having been said, the hotel breakfast was good and one of the people at the counter was helpful with booking a doctor appointment with a doctor nearby. I just wish the hotel would be more helpful with your problems and not brush you off, because at over $300 a night, it isn't the cheapest option available.

I stayed here on business for one night. The hotel was spotless, the room was large and bright and very quiet. The breakfast was well stocked. Yes the hotel is not in the centre of Zurich, but this is what appealed to us. It is in a leafy residential area. To get into Zurich it is a 20 minute walk or a Tram which you can get more or less outside the hotel.

I'd definitely use this hotel again for business and pleasure and reccommend to you!

The hotel Engimatt is oddly located in a residential area about 20 minutes walk away from the old quarter of Zurich. It is located on a quiet street, surrounded by residences, but behind it runs the Sihl river and the SihlCity shopping complex with restaurants and shops - the saving grace of the location.

The hotel is cosy and pleasant, airy clean rooms and Internet included in the hotel price. Spartan comes to mind when describing the hotel furnishings, considering the room price. Staff are friendly though, and it is very quiet in the day or night.

It is a low-rise hotel, and has a small garden within the premises. Breakfast is good and the dining area roomy and bright.

The tram runs nearby but the city center is a 20-minute stroll away through quiet residential streets. There are hotels nearer the city center for sightseeing, the hotel Engimatt is best suited to those with their own transport or who have business nearby.

We stayed one night in this otherwise quite nice hotel, not far from the city center. We were , however, astounded and disgusted to find that the bathroom had a glass door, and to make it worse the bathroom was positioned exactly opposite our beds. For either of us to use the toilet, the other had to go out on the balcony!! We found this "design feature" repulsive. When we wrote to complain we received a very prompt and polite letter back, regretting any inconvenience caused, saying that this was now quite common in parts of Europe, and that " we certainly understand that such a design is not welcomed by all cultures" - the mind boggles what cultures would welcome this!

We do care about this issue and know that glass doors (although with restricted view) are not ideal for Jewish guests. A special film will be put on the doors this Friday to make sure that all cultures will feel comfortable in this 2 rooms.

It's very clean and comfortable.
I had a double deluxe room and the room is big with nespresso machine.
lots of TV channels in many different languages
breakfast is good. lots of different options.

Locationwise, it's not IN the centre but it's right next to sihl city the shopping centre with lots of different tramline (no 5 and 13) going past and you can also take S4 to the Zurich HB. you have a few "fast food"/"canteen" at sihl city but also have a very nice restaurant called "bederhof" nearby on wafflenplatzstrasse (hope i spelt it right)

Pricewise, it is not cheap! (but it applies to everything in zurich)

One of the guy at the reception looks a bit grumpy though and doesn't look very friendly though. but that doesnt really bother me too much.

Good quality hotel in Zurich both for business and pleasure. It is a few tram stops from the downtown city area but the price makes it worth staying here (and buying a 24 hour Tram ticket).

Clean and nice friendly staff. Although I used it for business, I will bring my family in too. The hotel is close to many takeway and resturants just a short walk away.

Recommended for people who are just out of the back-packer category.
