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.

We spent four nights here in a suite looking over the Limmat River. Old town is just across the street along with a Coop. The bahnhofstrasse is just a few blocks away. The hotel is nicely appointed. My sons loved the hotel breakfast every morning. The hotel has an amazing restaurant outdoors as well as downstairs. We had an amazing...

Stayed here from 3/23 to 3/27/2017. Wonderful location in downtown Zurich. Very close walk to pretty much everywhere. Train station is a quick walk also. We actually just sat outside and enjoyed a drink while watching the multitude of high end cars drive by. The piano bar was also fun. Would stay again.

Stayed at the Central Plaza in February 2017. The hotel is conveniently located near the main railway station (a curse in many cities but a blessing in clean, safe Zurich), the old town and shopping district (if you have the sort of money required to shop along the Bahnhofstrasse). The rooms are clean, comfortable and more spacious than one might...
