This hotel is situated in the middle of the charming little town of Engelberg. It has recently undergone a makeover of the bedrooms and they are well fitted, clean and efficiently heated. There are spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, and Mt. Titlis which is easily accessible by a free shuttle bus just a short walk from the hotel. Check... More

The Central Hotel is true to its name in that it is very centrally located in the pretty town of Engelberg. It is just a stone’s throw from the train station and this is where you can pick up the ski bus so it isn’t far to carry the skis each day. It's a lovely family friendly hotel run by... More

Once I made the mistake of wanting to "try something new". It won't happen again. Hotel Central is the equivalent of a splendid 4 star with 3 star prices. The rooms are brand new and the staff is warm, welcoming and international. The restaurant!!!! So authentic India. I must say I'm impressed by every aspect of this hotel. Good for... More

i am currently staying at the comfortable, friendly, accessible hotel. The location is perfect for a weekend skiing being "centrally" located ( as you might imagine) between the railway station and the Titlis lift. You couldn't ask for a warmer welcome , cleanliness and comfort without the annoyance of constantly being asked if everything is ok. It is ok, very... More

My wife and I had pleasure of spending a few evenings at this hotel, part pleasure driven, part business. This has a great location, close to train and slopes. Wonderfull service with a smile, an owner/manager who obviously cares about the guests. The breakfast was fantastic, omelettes, eggs, pastries, cereals, meats and cheeses; have stayed at places twice as expensive... More

"Hotel Central" lives up to its name fully! At the vibrant centre of Engelburg;You are close to shops, restaurants, hotel and right at the bottom of the mountain Titlis. Which gave us a great view to wake up on daily. The staff are genuinely friendly & very helpful. The new Indian restaurant " Spice Bazaar" was quite a delight and... More

Great hotel in the heart of Engelburg. This is 3rd time I've stayed in this hotel. Walking distance from shops, restaurants, train station and Mount Titlis. Dedicated and efficient staff, breathtaking mountain views and flavoursome food is just the beginning. The newly renovated bar ls a fab spot for food and drinks. See you again soon Hotel Central i will... More

We stayed at Hotel Central for 13 days in October. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed our visit very much. The hotel was doing a lot of renovations but then quite a few of other hotels were doing renovations also, preparing for the ski season. The room was very up to date and had a fantastic view from our... More

To be fair, this hotel is undergoing renovation, so things may get better, although the construction noise and the dust are unpleasant at this time. Also, the staff is friendly and the rooms (though small) that have been renovated are clean. Having said that, this is not the future of the Swiss hotel industry. The materials used are cheap, the...

I did travel to swizz many times. I have stayed at many properties, but I like this property. I stayed at the top floor of this hotel. Room was comparatively small but was newly furbished. Please opt for this room. Good view from the window. Food was good but preferred to eat outside. Just a walk to the train station.... More
