We booked the Central Plaza as part of a package due to the location of the hotel. The hotel is located directly opposite the main train station in Zurich on the other side of the bridge which is ideal when you arrive in the city after a long flight. We were checked in early which was a godsend and the... More

To kick-off our honey moon, my wife and I flew in to Zurich and stayed a couple nights at the Central Plaza. The staff was welcoming, the facilities modernized and clean but what sets this place apart from so many others in the expensive city is its location. We had a great room overlooking old-town and the river and were... More

The hotel is at the absolute center of Zurich and you can walk to numerous restaurants and attractions. They have a nice breakfast to start the day and a great bar for closing out the evening. The room is comfortable and updated, but expensive. No complaints

Picking to stay here at the last minute with a friend, it is a fabulously located hotel. The room we got at last minute had brilliant views over downtown zurich and the limmat. The room as comfortable for two and we very much appreciated the in room Nespresso machine!

We spent two nights here after a week cruising the Rhine. The location was great but the lack of air conditioning, meant that we had to keep the windows open and hence the noise from the trams and traffic. The bed was comfortable but the room was quite narrow and not what we expected. It was also very expensive, but... More

Location outstanding Great lobby Restaurants on site but expensive, However Zurich itself is expensive so very comparable to the area. Rooms were ok but especially bathrooms need some serious updating. The blowdryer was what seemed like from the 70's. Other than that if you want a central location walking distance from everything it as a good hotel.

Beautiful old hotel located a 5 minute walk from the station. Over looking the water and easily accessible to many attractions including old town. They upgraded us to a junior suite which is a comfortable size. One of the perks is the hardwood floor, much nicer than carpet. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.. Can be a little noisy... More

In the very center, just 15 minutes from airport. A very stylish hotel, but a little bit expensive. Room and bed were very comfortable. The only problem was some control panel for lights and radio installed in headboard - I turned lights on/off while trying to get asleep. Coffee machine in the room was exactly what's needed in the morning.
