The location of the hotel is the main advantage. Walkable distance to train station and on the main road side. Both breakfast and dinner was great. They provide Indian food also. There was no provision complimentary tea/coffee/water in the room. No sound proofing, can hear sounds next rooms.

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

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

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
