Central Plaza Hotel
Ranked #51 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Reviewed 3 February 2012

This hotel is walking distance from the main train station (ideal for airport) and close to shops and pleasant walks around the lake. It is staffed by professional helpful employees. There is a small piano bar off the lobby that is popular and the restaurant must be good because its booked out way in advance, it certainly looks very nice. The shock came when I saw the Superior Room I had paid for which must have been all of 10'x10' with a tiny little wardrobe, tiny desk, tiny chair and tiny window to peek out of! Perfect if you are about 8years old. I wonder if the cheaper room was much smaller. Seems hard to imagine somehow. Having said that the room was clean and for one night it was perfectly OK.

Booked at standard room here. My closet at home is larger than this. Upon entering room opened window because room was too hot. Directly across the street was office building the people in building were kind enough to wave. Just wonderful!!! Room had 1 towel for both my husband and I, were we supposed to share? Paid 50CHF extra per night for a larger room. View was nice and thankfully no office building across the way. Had to visit front desk 3x so far thr first night because the key to the room did not work. Towels are frayed and ragged. Can't wait for what ever else goes wrong. 4 stars not even on a good day. 2.5 would be a strech and only because of central location. For this price in room coffee would be nice but not here. Would leave if I did not prepay stay on Hotels.com. Beware!!!!

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

This hotel is wonderful - good location, great staff and facilities. We arrived from South Africa at 06h00 and on arrival at the hotel just after 07h30 they had a room ready for us. Not only could we check in extremely early they had upgraded us to a suite. The room was clean, well-equipped and beautiful. Thank you Central Plaza for being so accommodating.

We made use of the their fitness centre which is small but has enough equipment for a work out. Hotel has a restaurant however we did not eat here but did have coffee in their bar which is very convenient and has wi-fi. There is also a lift in the hotel.

We found the location very convenient to the train station, trams and for walking around town and has a Star bucks across the road.

I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again should I ever find myself in Zurich.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during Christmas. We got a Junior Suite and it was very comfortable. It is 15-20 minutes away from Zurich Airport. (Take ZHB to get to the hotel).

The location is truly central. The tram stop is just outside the hotel so we were able to go anywhere easily (Having Zurich Card helps!). But most of the sites are close enough to walk.

Check-in was very efficient and easy. Our room had a great view. We could see the river and the churches. It was a very large room. Round bed was interesting. Austin Powers inspired maybe? I thought it was very comfortable. The bathroom sink area was small but ok.

During check-out there is an additional 5CHF, some kind of city tax.

We really liked this hotel and if we come back to Zurich we would definitely pick Central Plaza again.
