“Good Value”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Decent rates and cozy rooms. Very clean. Staff was friendly. Nice bar and good breakfast. Location is convenient, you can walk to the main shopping street (Bahnhof Strasse) and Old Town. The train station is right around the corner. I would definitely go back.

I stayed there only for two nights (22 Oct - 24 Oct), but I liked it very much and didn't want to leave it! I had a nice spacious light room with a good view to the city. Especially I liked the cosy bed with soft pillows and the bathroom where you can lie and watch the city in the evening:))) (Don't forget to turn off the light in the bathroom so that people in the street can't see you! In general I enjoyed the time that I spent there!))) By the way the hotel is situated in 3 minutes walk from the railway station that is very convenient!

Good Hotel with perfect location but rooms are very small. Hotel is located next to Train Station and 20 mins walk to Lake but old town starts from hotel. Would love to stay here again

i dont think i have enough to write 200 words as per trip advisor requirment for this place and messages could be conveyed in 10 words if applicable but yes anyway i hope this is my 200th word

Room Tip: Try to get room towards city view

Not the cheapest but what is in Zurich,,, located across the Limmat River from the HB railway station walking distance to everywhere, especially the Bahnhofstrasse. Reception very good worth a mention,,,Rooms bit poky not unusual for old European central Hotels, clean, good bed, excellent wifi, sound proofed, excellent water pressure & the rubber duck a nice touch. Laundry Service for suit etc prompt !! Breakfast nothing to write home about, minibar prices forget,,,, across the road COOP for all your needs (water, bottle of red etc) plenty retaurants in area with good breakfasts by the river. One mention is the Kings Cave under the hotel,,,,,, most excellent cuisine the prime swiss steak exceptional & the venison & wild berry starter a delight,,, recommended most highly.

I have been staying at the Central Plaza regularly for seven years. Warm, welcoming, helpful, convenient for the station and the trams. The Piano Bar is worth the stay on its own. The restaurant is good but very expensive but there are loads of nearby restaurants. Bedrooms small but clean and the beds are comfortable.

This hotel is well located, walking distance from the train station and right in old town so you can walk to many bars and restaurants. The room are small and a bit spartan; but if you aren't going to spend a lot of time in the room then this is a great spot.

Room Tip: When they say "kIng" bed, they really mean something that is more like a queen.

The Central Plaza Hotel is conveniently located across the lake/river from Zurich HB (Main Train Station), and next to the historic part of down town Zurich. The rooms are very comfortable, reasonably priced considering location and there is an abundance of restaurants to choose from that are within walking distance. Major tourist attractions are just a short stroll away, the famous Bahnhof Strasse, Zurich's premier shopping district, Museums, Art Galleries, etc. The area is clean and safe. Hotel staff is very friendly and the continental breakfast will satisfy just about anyone. I personally recommend Central Plaza Hotel to all travelers.

Room Tip: Lake-side rooms provide for great views.
