I stayed for just one night at the Central Plaza whilst on a short business trip to Zurich. I arrived at around 6pm, check in was smooth and I was quickly in my room, which was well furnished if a bit on the small side. The room did have adequate tea and coffee making facilities and a complimentary bottle of...

Dear Guest Thank you for your stay in our Hotel and for taking the time to write your nice comment on Tripadvisor. We are glad that you had a nice stay in our hotel.

stayed one night at the Central Plaza hotel. Very convenient if you arrive by train- 10 minute walk from the station. Very close to the city centre, only 10-15 minutes walk. Efficient and friendly reception, nice bar and restaurant ( I did not eat there). Rooms is ok, clean but...needs upgrading. The interior is old fashioned. Again, it is clean...

Firstly, this hotel is no way cheap, more expensive than many located in the near vicinity but has a distinctly nicer feel and all things above it indeed is a superb location. At the start of the shopping street, about 2 mins from Old Town, by the river and the trams at the main door- one cannot ask anything more...

Just finished 3 nights at the Central Plaza Hotel. Had a junior suite on the first floor. Even though the room was at the front of the hotel facing a very busy intersection, the room was very quiet and easy to sleep in. Only issue we had during the stay was the intermittent power supply to the coffee machine. It...

We stayed in the Central Plaza Hotel in Zurich, in August 2014, and we had the worst experience in a Hotel that we ever had.

Only 2 minutes walking distance from the train station, and a short walk to all tourist attractions in Zurich. Old building but renovated to modern standards. Staff is friendly, efficient and helpful. Only drawback is the small room and hard bed. There also seems to be no aircon, as they advise you to keep the windows shut during hot days.

I have stayed at this hotel many times, usually when I have business in Zurich and also, including most recently with my family while on vacation.

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your stay here and your valuable comment. You are right, we are not very flexibel regarding our room service menu.

The room was small and bathroom outdated! Nice with coffee-brewer! Breakfast outdoors was also a treat, but like most things in this city: expensive! Some of the waiters could be more attentive! Easy access to airport with tram(line 10) who takes 35 minutes and stops directly outside the hotel. Train-station is just across the bridge. Very centrally located.
