This hotel has a great position, you couldn't be better positioned in fact, right next to the Central train station, staff was very gentle and helpful, room was comfortable but you won't be thrilled. Overall it was a great stay in Zurich. I will definitely be back if I'm in Zurich.

Good clean hotel wth very good friendly service. Breakfast good and waiting staff excellent. Rooms on small side if bulky luggage and step in shower awkward for those less mobile. Happy to stay there again. Shower problem could be rectified with well positioned hand rail. All in all a good hotel near all transport requirements, i.e. train, tram, etc.

We were on a tour from London to Paris and Zurich and on to Lake Garda. This hotel was selected because it was central and just across the road from the rail station as that was our mode of transport. We thought the hotel was really nice although Zurich is too expensive to stay more than one night.

During my first search for prices i thought there was a special event in the city at that time but finally i realized that the medium prices are between 270 to 300 euros or Swiss francs... More

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.
