Great price, super friendly staff in an idea location. The rooms are a bit oldish but well renovated and you have all what you need! Parking is available and actually cheap for Zurich prices, just tricky to get in. Good breakfast and the sleep quality was very good. There are also smoking rooms. Would recommend

This hotel is in a great location, just opposite the central rail station, which is why I picked it. The room wasn't the cheapest for a single, but I did get a double instead. You can see the hotel is ageing, but the standard of cleanliness and improvements make these pieces look more classy vintage than shabby. I would defiantly...

Perfect location, I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I go again|! Hardly a 3 minute walk from the central train station and overlooking the river. Many bars and restaurants across the street in the Old Town and very close to excellent shopping. There's a grocery store 50m away which is convenient as everything is really expensive in Switzerland. The rooms...

Nice Hotel. The Room was small but very clean, comfortable and had all you need for a short stay. Very good location next to the Main station and Zurich Old Town Restaurants/Bars. I went for the Breakfast option, also very good. Would stay again

Location alone makes this worth staying at, across the street from the main train station, which means, a short train ride from the airport to the main train station (6 euro versus a 50 euro taxi ride). Its also right in the heart of where all the great Zurich attraction are located, so location wise, you can't go wrong here....

We booked the Central Plaza as part of a package due to the location of the hotel. The hotel is located directly opposite the main train station in Zurich on the other side of the bridge which is ideal when you arrive in the city after a long flight. We were checked in early which was a godsend and the...

To kick-off our honey moon, my wife and I flew in to Zurich and stayed a couple nights at the Central Plaza. The staff was welcoming, the facilities modernized and clean but what sets this place apart from so many others in the expensive city is its location. We had a great room overlooking old-town and the river and were...

The hotel is at the absolute center of Zurich and you can walk to numerous restaurants and attractions. They have a nice breakfast to start the day and a great bar for closing out the evening. The room is comfortable and updated, but expensive. No complaints
