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

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The room was small and bathroom outdated!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.

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.
