I visited this hotel where I stayed a total of six nights. The hotel was surprisingly excellent and the staff were freindly and excellent. My room was very comfortable as I was on the second floor room (2#5). The prompt staff assistant with anything small or major was astonishing which pleased me very much ... Although there are a lot... More

This hotel has a great location: opposite the Central Station, only a few minutes away from Bahnhofstrasse, even closer to the Altstatt. It has good facilities and friendly staff. The breakfast is good (on the weekends with prosecco), wifi reliable in the rooms and public areas, service is good. We were in a superior double room with good amenities.

We picked this hotel primarily due to its location and we weren't disappointed. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean and spacious. Our room over looked the bridge and river, but there was no street noise at all. As far as location, the hotel is right across the river from the train station which made it easy... More

On the bad side of things...The room was very small, paint peeling from the bath tub, and a pathetic fitness area which I can only guess is provided to meet the minimum standards of being Classified as a 4 star hotel. Very high price for what you get, however, I try to consider that Zurich is a high market. Really... More

The Central Plaza Hotel is a nice hotel just across the bridge from the main train station in Zurich. The location is a plus and a minus. The plus is that you can easily walk to many sites in Zurich and are very close to the train station. The minus is that there is a bit of background street noise... More

Very nice hotel in a very good location. The rooms are not so modern but they are quite comfortable. They have a nice bar, a good outside cafe and a restaurant, which is also quite good. The service is also very good. One important point is that they have free apples on every floor and they are the best I... More

Pros. First of all, the location - it just cannot be better! Breakfast - a good buffet. All other points - like all 4-star hotels (in Switzerland; but there is no sense to compare with other countries). Overall - a very good choice to stay in Zurich, especially in the season of not-so-good weather, when a walking to tram/train/bus should... More

From the check-in to the check-out everything was going absolutely smooth. The staff was highly motivated and their breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this hotel to anybody who likes to stay in the heart of Zurich

Stayed here one night before flying out next morning - probably the best location in Zurich if 1) arriving from airport via train and 2) you want to be in the old center. Literally across the river from train station - which by the way, you want to take from the airport to center - for some reason, the taxi... More
