My family and I were traveling through Zurich for one night, and I discovered Central Plaza Hotel. Great location and easily accessible. We were even upgraded to a suite upon our arrival ~ what a total bonus! The room was spacious and had an amazing tub which was a welcome treat after a long car ride. The staff was always...

Older style hotel with an amazing position right in the centre of town. Our room was small and a bit old fashioned but it had everything we needed. The bathroom had a big bath with shower over. We walked to restaurants, shops etc. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. As long as you don't plan on spending time...

We had a great stay last week in this hotel. Location is very convenient, short walking distance to the main station and many restaurants nearby. Room was a bit on the small side, we had an upper level floor with river view and balcony, so the view made up for the small size of the room. Despite many buses and...

The location is just great, near eveything in central Zurich which is quite convinient mainly in a town like this. Sleeping quality is also good with average bed. Besides that the hotel is a bit old, needing some renovations in rooms and in the common areas. If you miss the 90's you'll love to be here! Even the bar looks...

We stayed at the hotel the last week of March, 2017 for five nights. We took extensive train trips around Switzerland every day and the hotel location is just across the river from the station. Since we always started early we picked up breakfast (fruit, yogurt, pastries, coffee, hot chocolate, etc.) at one of the many food spots in the...

This hotel is in central location as many here have written, near to the main railway station and there are many trams and buses going from the corner. It is also on the edge of the old town so many restaurants and main sights in stone's throw away. The hotel itself is quite expensive (as hotels are in Switzerland), also...

The perfect place as a hub for seeing Zurich. Trams and busses right outside the door. 3 minute walk to Zürich HB (the main train station). Wonderful staff, rooms, and restaurant. But don't forget, Zürich isn't cheap.

“Get a room on the back side - much quiter at night. Summer months request a fan for your room.”
