Central Plaza is a nice hotel, if you are looking to be near the center of town. Walking distance to the stately train station, Old Towne, and adjacent to the Limmat river. It is slightly dated, but the rooms are comfortable, clean and services are meeting the essentials.

Hi, The hotel Location is great, the rooms are ok, however the noise from road and trams, are a headache. Everything is in within walking proximity. Must visit the town of Luzern, it is really beautiful.

I had a pleasant stay at the hotel for one night. Although in the city center the room was quite and also convenient. Just the variety of the breakfast offers was a bit limited compared to other hotels of this level in Europe. Nevertheless i would come back.

The hotel location is perfect for a trip to Zurich! It is next to the main train station which is 10 mins away from the airport. The hotel also has a river view and walking distance to the shopping district and old town bars and restaurants !! Staff are friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable

I booked this hotel as part of our 20th wedding anniversary trip from Australia to Switzerland - what a great surprise we had from the staff on our arrival.. we were upgraded to a beautiful corner suite with fantastic views of central Zurich and they decorated the room with love-hearts and rose petals.
