This hotel was fabulous. We stayed for a few nights while we explored Zurich by foot and took a train out to Lake Lucerne for a day. We loved its location near eateries, Starbucks, movie theater, local attractions, and very near the main train station. We were able to walk and pull our luggage along the short distance upon arrival... More

I chose this hotel because, according to the Tripadvisor reviews which I trust, it was located in a great spot for the train and bus stations. In this respect, it definitely did not disappoint. I was able to walk everywhere in Zurich from this hotel because it facilitated bus tours and train rides. However, I found the rooms to be... More

The Central Plaza Hotel conveniently located within walking distance to Zurich's Main Train Station, and only 20 minutes from Zurich Airport/Flughafen, is by far the best hotel. Rooms are nice, service is excellent and priced just right. I have been staying at this hotel annually for the past 5 years, and look forward to returning again. Famed Bahnhofstrasse is within...

as the name says it is perfectly located in central Zurich. Easy access to everything. We arrived very early after 2 long flights from Australia and we were able to check into our rooms early. Check in staff very helpful and the bar is great for relaxing at the end of the day.
