We have just come back from staying in the Central plaza hotel Zurich. We stayed for a long weekend and we had very good time and the Central Plaza was a very good base to explore from. It is comfortable and relaxed, room was clean and light, good drink making facilities. Rest areas are nice and relaxing. Drinks and snacks... More

Central Plaza was just the right choice. We stayed one night in Zurich, and travelled on to St. Moritz to catch the Glacier Express. Because we had to stay away from Zurich but return back to Zurich after 6 nights,(we also went to Zermatt) it was so nice of them to hold our big luggages for the family. We were... More

Great location just across the bridge from the train station. Good base to explore the city. The room was a title compact but clean. Unfortunately the city is renovating the tram line just outside the hotel which generated a lot of noise. The hotel had left a letter in my room and provided ear plugs

The Central Plaza Hotel is perfectly located for travelers to Zurich. Just a couple blocks from the train station and a convenient walk to the bus station for guided day tours. Tram stop is located right outside the hotel for convenient travel around the city. The food and service are very good. The rooms are spacious with free hi-speed internet... More

Reasonably priced for Zurich standards and especially seen the free upgrade; unfortunately the junior suite had to single beds. I could imagine that younger couples prefer a king- or queensize bed. Mattress quality is very good. Very nice bathroom. Coffee machine with large choice of coffee and tea types. We will be back.

Arrived by train in March after skiing Zermatt; stayed a few nights and then went on our way home. The location was perfect and close to the train station and everything else. Our first morning was a bit rough as our hotel neighbors had 2 kids who wanted to ride their scooters up and down the hallway outside our door.... More

4 night stay in 2 spacious rooms (for Europe). Very clean and comfortable. Notable: Nespresso machines in our rooms, well-stocked snacks in mini-bar, very fast free wifi, well insulated windows preventing outside noise (bus station below). View on plaza is lovely from 5th floor. All food was very good and came quickly, service very courteous. Our days were hot, and... More

Plus points are that it is located as central as you can get right by the Zurich HB and countless tram spots so getting around is easy. It is a nice little hotel with a really good restaurant attached. Downsides are that some of the staff seem to have a memory of a sieve. After staying for a number of... More

This hotel is in a premier waterfront location. The front desk is friendly and the clean rooms are a credit to the housekeeping staff. On a downside, parking is a hassle if you have a car. Restaurant quality close to the hotel is outstanding. The view of the historic part of Zurich while walking is stunning.
