“great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Our stay started when when, with many bags, we left the train station in downtown Zurich looking for a cab. The driver announced that the hotel was just 200 meters away! We walked over the bridge and saw a magnificent facade over looking the river. The hotel has a beautiful lobby with an upscale feel. Reception was excellent and all around we were very happy.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor. Our room was affected by street noise on the Saturday evening

Across the river from the central station (maybe a 5 minute walk) and in the heart of downtown Zürich, Central Plaza Hotel is a great choice. Our room was modern, large and clean. It was quiet at night despite the traffic. The windows must be well sound-proofed. The staff was friendly and efficient. There is a positively reviewed main restaurant (did not try) and a cafe and bar area. We had a drink in the bar and it had a good ambiance. The breakfast costs about 16 CHF which seems average for this city. We were pleased with the easy access to the train to get to the airport (20 minutes). We would definitely stay here again.

Centrally located across the street from the train station. Rooms are comfortable, staff helpful and curtious.For business it is within walking distance from the financial center and for walking around the old city it is just across the street. However, the price did not include breakfast, making it a little pricey.

For those wanting to explore Central Zürich there's no better option than the central plaza hotel For the price. The rooms are standard European size modern and include a flat screen television, Minibar and comfortable bedding. There is a very nice breakfast served every morning, Although overpriced if you pay additionally for it. Try and get a room rate through hotels.com or trip advisor which includes breakfast. The hotel is also very clean and non-smoking.

The staff are friendly and attentive and speak English, Which has also been my opinion of most people and Shops in Zurich. The trump card of this hotel is its location by the river and only a three minute walk to the main train station. The tram stop for Central is only one minute outside the hotel front door. From there The efficient tram system will get you anywhere in the city, Specifically tramlines six and seven. Further adding to the convenience of this location is a supermarket 100 yards across the bridge from the hotel's front door.

Overall a nice hotel in a great location and convenient to all forms of transit.

Close to station, lots of bars and restaurants close by. Lovely hotel, everywhere clean, comfortable beds and spacious enough room. Bar expensive but then everything is in Zurich. Coop over the road if you need any supplies. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Very well located. Close to major shopping area, restaurants and to the main train station which was very convenient. It's on the river and very close to the lake and the old town. Hotel has nice common areas, a decent restaurant bar (a bit expensive for its type but then everything in Zurich is expensive) and seems to have been remodeled recently. Rooms are less nice than the rest of the hotel. They are tiny and furnishings are modern but pretty basic. Very limited tv options. Just a few local channels plus bbc, cnn, etc. Overall it is a decent place to stay in a very good location.
