3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was small and bathroom outdated! Nice with coffee-brewer! Breakfast outdoors was also a treat, but like most things in this city: expensive! Some of the waiters could be more attentive! Easy access to airport with tram(line 10) who takes 35 minutes and stops directly outside the hotel. Train-station is just across the bridge. Very centrally located.

I'm not picky when it comes to writing reviews about hotels but I just had to make a comment on a few things regarding this hotel. My girlfriend and I were doing a trip around Europe for 4 weeks. We booked this hotel months in advanced as it was very central to the city (close to the main part of... More

Only stayed one night as we wanted to be in Zurich so we were close to Zurich airport to catch our flight home the next day. We were traveling with my daughter and family - twin one year old boys. The hotel was very accommodating regarding cots for the boys etc. I thought it was quite expensive however we wanted... More

Stayed for a week on business and it was ok. Nothing fantastic but it had everything I needed. The main advantage is definitely it's location, which is just across the river from the main train station. It's also along the main tram routes. That's where the noise could be an issue for light sleepers but you can ask for a... More

I loved the Central Plaza in Zurich. Its beautiful, clean and modern. For 300$ US dollars I got a kingsize bed with the cleanest, fluffiest pillows and blanket. I had an amazing river view in my spacious comfortable room. The location was perfect. Near train, Old Town, shopping and river.It was across street from the COOP, an amazing low cost... More

The great location unfortunately does not make up for the other shortcomings of this hotel. To name a few: The air conditioning was ineffective and made a rattling noise which made it impossible to sleep. We requested a twin room but instead we were put in a single with a double bed separated in two. As a result, the light... More

Stayed overnight, did not eat breakfast so can not comment on the food. The room was comfortable, the bar area was good, with appropriate live lounge music. The location is excellent, a short walk from the station, and the tram station is right outside, even as a foreigner I figured the trams out for my day in Zurich. Recommend for... More
