My husband and I stayed at the Central Plaza for one night in transition from the Zurich airport to a train to Italy. The hotel is a very short walk from the Zurich HB, and convenient to historic sites, restaurants and shopping in Old Zurich. Everything is easily walkable, very safe and clean. Our room #203) was a typical size...

I am American so take my review with a grain of salt. The location is the best part of the hotel. I walked everywhere while there. It is close to Starbucks!, tons of restaurants, shopping, the river, the lake, the grocery (coop) and train/buses. Like others have mentioned there is not air conditioning. The room was quite warm in September....

Very nice, clean, comfortable room. Staff is very friendly and efficient. My experience is that Swiss hotels can often stick closely to the rules, but the front desk staff saw that we were tired from our overnight flight and made the room available to us 4 hours before the official check in, which we appreciated very much. Good value for...

Decent hotel in excellent location, right by the main station, with two good restaurants. But avoid in the summer. Only the superior rooms have aircon. The others have "air flow control" and "temperature control" but despite buttons in the wall panel that suggest they turn on the flow and regulate the temperature, they do nothing of the kind. It's very...
