3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

stayed one night at the Central Plaza hotel. Very convenient if you arrive by train- 10 minute walk from the station. Very close to the city centre, only 10-15 minutes walk. Efficient and friendly reception, nice bar and restaurant ( I did not eat there). Rooms is ok, clean but...needs upgrading. The interior is old fashioned. Again, it is clean... More

The hotel is true to its name - Central. The location of this hotel is so convenient that it is a bout 5 minutes walk to the train station, 2 minutes away from Old town, by the river with various trams station and 5 minutes to Coop. With the price we paid, the room was quite small. But it was... More

Firstly, this hotel is no way cheap, more expensive than many located in the near vicinity but has a distinctly nicer feel and all things above it indeed is a superb location. At the start of the shopping street, about 2 mins from Old Town, by the river and the trams at the main door- one cannot ask anything more... More

Just finished 3 nights at the Central Plaza Hotel. Had a junior suite on the first floor. Even though the room was at the front of the hotel facing a very busy intersection, the room was very quiet and easy to sleep in. Only issue we had during the stay was the intermittent power supply to the coffee machine. It... More

We stayed in the Central Plaza Hotel in Zurich, in August 2014, and we had the worst experience in a Hotel that we ever had. A few days before our arrival we requested an upgrade to a better room than the one we had originally booked. The hotel informed us that there would be an extra charge of 20 Swiss... More

Only 2 minutes walking distance from the train station, and a short walk to all tourist attractions in Zurich. Old building but renovated to modern standards. Staff is friendly, efficient and helpful. Only drawback is the small room and hard bed. There also seems to be no aircon, as they advise you to keep the windows shut during hot days.

I have stayed at this hotel many times, usually when I have business in Zurich and also, including most recently with my family while on vacation. The rooms are comfortable and the little breakfast area and dining area work well either for meetings or for informal dining. The hotel staff are invariably friendly and they are usually helpful. However, over... More

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your stay here and your valuable comment. You are right, we are not very flexibel regarding our room service menu. This is a management decision, that not all meals which are served in the restaurant are available in room service. Due to lacking demand, we do not have a room service department with... More

Very central and good location in Zürich. I got a wonderful room under the roof with magnificent views. Staff friendly and helpful, I enjoyed three nights, although it is somewhat expensive. Can be recommended!

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.
