                • Great location for overnight, helpful, convenient for the station and the trams, the design of the room was creative and made an extremely cosy stay. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was good.

                  The hotel was expensive, the bathroom was tiny, and the phone was broken.

                • Very good and central location, the proximity to the rail station made perfect. Hotel staff were really helpful and room was clean. On a positive note, the bar had great food and wonderful service.

                  Bathroom cramped, all served at your table, disappointingly no buffet available and very unfriendly and unhelpful German receptionists. Too small a gym.

                • Location is very good, trams are convenient and everyone is nice and helpful, the hotel itself is very quiet, clean and modern. The service at the reception is friendly and courteous, the rooms and bathrooms are adequate.

                  The old town and the main train station, the staff is kind.

                • Location excellent, comfortable and clean, just a 3 minutes walk away from the train station, the rooms are quiet and the hotel has its own parking. The staff are excellent, free internet is available and lovely restaurant in the cave in the basement.

                  Old town and also the Front Desk person wasn'. The bed was fairly large, the bar was good service and busy, the decorative pillows were stained.

                • Clean and good location, bus stops less than 50meters away. The fact hotel was modern, staff were friendly and our room was lovely. The food was excellent.

                  Not worth the money, unfriendly stuff and the old town, the railway station and Bahnhofstraße are all within a 2 min range walking. Breakfast is very expensive.

                • I liked the location, near to the station and very convenient to a walking street w numerous restaurants. Pros and cons about the Central Plaza, clean, modern hotel. Easy walking distance to old town and decent rates. The lobby appears small and cheap, excellent staff/, the room was clean and comfortable.

                  Bad business center and scary car park. Zurich is do expensive and very poor air conditioning. The chef is unable to cook an egg, facilities feel outdated.
