I stayed twice at this hotel. The room was spacious and clean, the breakfast was great.
It is conveniently located close to Sihl City shopping center and just 15 min from the central train station. The staff are friendly and the surroundings are very nice and quiet. Overall a very good business hotel.

Stayed here with my family during my first visit in Switzerland. Hotel Engimatt is only a few tram stops away from the main shopping district. Its is also a five minute walk away from a mall with a Coop branch (supermarket of sorts). There are around two tram stops to choose from as well in short walking distance. It is located in a very quiet area and thats what we love.

Concierge was very helpful with our questions. Breakfast was good though there was one of the staff that we had a slight problem with, but thats alright no harm done. Though I warn that the front desk is found after a flight of stairs so you have to bring your luggage up unless you ask if you can use the service elevator to get them up there. The free wifi was fast; good for those who still has work to be done. Very good for children who are in dire need of internet. Triple bedroom was very comfy and spacious.

I recommend to try this hotel. We are very happy during our stay here.

We stayed there for 1 night on 21st, April.
The design and decoration create a good atmosphere there.
Although It's not in the city centre, it's still convenient to get there. We took the tram #13 from the Zurich HB station to the hotel. It only took us few minutes to walk there.
The area is quiet( & safer maybe). The room is clean and light.
They provide Nespresso coffee machine and hairdryer.
The breakfast is normal but enough for travelers.
Pillows are a little too soft for us and the mattress is soft, too.
There is a big shopping centre nearby. But there is no other convenient store or little shop nearby. If you need some groceries especially in the evening or on holidays, buy them in the city centre first.

Room Tip: We stayed in the superior double room with view, balcony and breakfast. It's great!

I stayed there from the 27th to the 31st of March. The hotel is a little far from the airport ( 65 Euros by taxi ) but once you are at the hotel there is tram 13 two minutes away which takes you to the main train station in less than 7 to 8 minutes . To get to the airport you can take the passenger commuter train which is again 1 stop away. All very easy. Found the single rooms a bit small but very neat and clean. The staff was very polite . I loved the stay there.
If you are checking out early then the staff there cannot even give you the tram/train ticket to the .airport and you have to buy it at the stop from the vending machine . Else all train and tram tickets are sold at the hotel and added to your bill. Just convenient

Travelled from Australia to Zurich and stayed at the Engimatt Hotel. Found the reception staff to be excellent with their knowledge of local attractions and services. The buffet breakfast was to die for, so much yummy Swiss food and very exclusive surroundings, including the delightful outdoor area. Restaurant staff were efficient, quiet and very willing to help. The room are spacious, well appointed and extremely comfortable and warm. Free WiFi in the rooms, along with coffee maker, iron and widescreen TV. Balcony provided fresh air. There is an arrangement with Asia Spa for gym membership, this place is worth visiting! Short walk to shops, tram, railway and about 30 min walk to Zurich City - very pleasant on a fine day.

Room Tip: All rooms are well appointed, very quiet.

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.
