Fabulous 8.6 From 322 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Lovely hotel in great location
A quick walk from the train station and located in the beautiful old part of Zurich, this hotel was just right for our two-night stay. It is centrally located, near the university, restaurants, and many major sites, and has its own very lively bar/restaurant scene in the evening. Our room and bathroom were smallish (like those in many European hotels) but perfectly adequate, and came with a fridge. Nice modern decor. I'd recommend skipping the rooms with a lake view because the view is impeded by a number of bus/tram tracks and a very busy boulevard.

We booked a Superior room and were upgraded to a suite.The room was spacious,well-appointed and comfortable.The bed was exceptionally comfortable.The hotel bar was wonderful..Very well laid out with a classy atmosphere.Seemed to be a popular meeting place for the locals as well as hotel guests,probably because of the hotel's location just across the street from the main train station.

Loud, but Convenient
The location of the hotel couldn't have been better. We spent one night in Zurich in order to catch an early train the following morning. Since the hotel was right across the river from the main train station, it was just a short walk with our luggage. The room was nice, but, my goodness, Zurich is a city doesn't sleep. There were people and traffic moving about all night long.

Great location to stay near Old Town
The Central Plaza location was very good; in addition to convenience it is a large hotel with a big (and lit at night) hotel sign at the top, which is easily seen from a distance, very useful in a city where one can expect to do a lot of walking. It is not easy to park in front of if you are driving and parking is tricky, but cabs etc., are very easily procures through the helpful front desk. As elsewhere, the front desk staff speaks very good English and is quite flexible and eager to help with maps, directions or anything else you might require, which is good, as there is no official Concierge. Breakfast was ok, looked nicer than it tasted, and to us was quite overpriced (that's saying something for an overpriced city). We cancelled ours and ate better at local cafes after the first day. Cannot speak to their restaurants otherwise. The "business center" seems to be only a counter with one computer and printer but worked well for us when we only needed to print out Boarding passes. There may well be other places to use, as the hotel has a lot of different levels, but this is right in the front main lobby across from the check-in counter. We had two different kinds of rooms and the basic one left a bit to be desired. The deluxe was much better. Bathrooms are updated but both kinds of rooms have sliding doors to the bathrooms which may add space but seem cheap and certainly don't give much privacy. Beds and pillows were nice. Munchies from minibar few, coffee machine.

Fair 4.0
Very Unhappy
First of all, the hotel is not air conditioned, it has an air filtration system which just moves around the air. The temperature in Zurich is in the 90's so it was very uncomfortable. The first floor is the only floor with central air; after 2 days and many complaints they moved us to that floor. The maid service is not up to par, leaving dirty dishes in our room on more than one occasion. The small refrigerator in the rooms is not actually a fridge as appears, it is a mini bar which will not keep anything cool, not even the wine that they put in stayed cool. We purchased small food items for breakfast that were dairy products, had to toss them due to being warm. When you are paying the price for a four star hotel, you expect four star comfort and cleanliness. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone nor would I ever stay in it again.
