ENGIMATT City-Gardenhotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a 4 star hotel, neatly tucked away in a quiet residential outskirt of the City. It is within 5 mins walking distance of the local railway station and tram line. It's also about 20 mins walk from the City Centre, if you are a good walker. I liked that because it's quieter and gets you away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms were excellent with all mod cons and spotlessly clean. The staff were also very friendly and accommodating. The orangery dining area is particularly nice for breakfast and also has an outside dining area. Breakfast was very good. I was not tempted to eat dinner there as it was a very traditional Swiss menu, which I'm not a big fan of, however there are many excellent restaurants nearby. My only complaint was concerning the room temperature. One would expect a 4 star hotel to have air conditioning. Despite it being a hot couple of days in May, there was only some sort of fresh air system working, so the room temperature remained at 24-25 deg - which is too hot for sleeping. Opening the windows only let noise in. That does need addressing - especially in the height of Summer !

Close to Sihl City, 20 mins walk from City although regular tram service 2 mins away. Great hotel with many rooms recently refurbished. Rooms are large clean and comfy. Good range of international TV, ironing board, hairdryer and coffee maker. Great buffet breakfast too.

We travelled as 2+1 baby visiting friends nearby. The hotel was a great location - very accessible for the airport and city centre. It is just round the corner from a lovely shopping centre which also has great restaurants (reasonable for Zurich!) and a cinema. Reception staff were not overboard on the welcoming when we arrived but were nice and professional and gave us an upgrade of our room without making a big deal about it. They were efficient and friendly which is just what you want. The room was lovely with a great balcony with a christmas tree just outside! The chocolates left on our pillow were pure heaven! Breakfast was relaxing and tasty. Great coffee. Bathroom was a nice size, room was big and spacious - plenty of room for the travel cot they happily installed for us. One of the best first nights sleep in a hotel I have had in ages as I usually don't sleep the first night too well. Great fit for us - would stay again!

The hotel is in a good location, very pleasant and very very clean. But on top of all the personnel there is very professional, they are very nice, they answer every question with great detail, direct you to wherever you wish to go, and do not give up until they are sure everything is completely understood. This was a very special and rare experience.

Quiet, clean and polite. Comfortable surroundings and friendly staff, and all at a very competitive price. This is a small hotel but that's what makes it so endearing contrasted to those facsimiled mega-hotels. With the Engimatt you know you are somewhere else. I shall return.

The exterior is uninviting and doesn't improve inside... Desperately in need of a full remodel. There rooms are tiny and old fashioned. Only one towel which was as thin as a dishcloth. I'm here because it is close to my office but if I come back I will be staying somewhere else even if it adds time onto the journey

Our long weekend break couldn't have been more enjoyable, thanks to the smooth running and courteous, kind and professional staff at the Engimatt. All the staff without exception were extremely helpful, kind and polite. As orthodox Jews out religious requirements were accommodated with no fuss and a genuine desire to ensure that our stay at the hotel was as enjoyable as possible. The kosher breakfasts and coffees were delicious and more than enough. The well appointed room was spacious, spotless with a bathroom to match. There was nothing that we could find fault with. We do hope that we'll be able to come back soon.

The hotel is close to my office so I book it more or less every time I travel to Zurich. It's conveniently located near Sihl river, large shopping center and is 20min walk from downtown. I usually request rooms on 1st and 2nd floor, because bathtubs on 3rd are cramped (slanted roof is eating vertical space). Breakfast is nice - smoked salmon, variety of cheeses, baked goods, muesli, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, juices, great hot chocolate... Front desk stuff is helpful, with some caveats - they didn't bother helping with hotel WiFi issues.

My visit was disappointing. It started with a long wait at reception before I could check in, and I was underwhelmed by the room I had - small bathroom, minute desk and little space to move around. On the positive side, the restaurant, which I only saw for breakfast is spacey, with the opportunity to enjoy outside seating.

This hotel has many positives however when we arrived we went down the corridor to our room (3rd floor) and I have never seen anything like it. There were holes in the ceiling with wires hanging down and planks of wood (waiting to be put around doors). I went down stairs to complain and ask if it was even safe. She said they were renovating. We should have been told this before coming in my opinion. If you stay here ask to stay on the 2nd floor. The renovations had been completed here and it looked lovely. Also we couldn't turn our air con down and quite a big stain on the carpet. The rest of the hotel was really nice though, it had a lovely breakfast which you could eat outside and also a tennis court.
