Recently refurbished it is a nice and friendly hotel. Efficient and friendly staff. The rooms are nicely done up and well maintained. The hotel is located a few meters from the Engelberg Railway Station. Many Indians groups can be seen having lunch / dinner in their dining area.

The hotel has a bar, restaurant and free wifi.

We didnt stay in the hotel but we had our lunch there. After having so much fun with the snow at Mt Titlis, we were really hungry. Our tour leader had booked our lunch at this halal Indian restaurant which was located at Hotel Central in Engelberg. The food was delicious and there were many other tourists from India who came there also feeling hungry after the energy sapping frolicking in the snow. We didnt know about the cost and the food selection because it was all included in our tour package. Everyone seemed to eat more maybe because we were hungry but mainly because the food was great. The rice and the curry chicken had to be replenished to satisfy our hunger. We left the restaurant feeling really satisfied and with our stomach full. Then off we went with our tour bus to Beaune, France which was hundreds of km away.

Our tour group (from USA) stayed at Hotel Central for 2 weeks while touring Switzerland. I believe this Hotel is owned by people from India, as every evening hundreds of India people came for dinner.

The front desk staff was wonderful and very helpful. Everything we asked, they were more than willing to assist us.

We were served American food in a separate dining area from the food served to the people from India. The food was very good. It appeared that they prepared and served food to anyone coming to their Hotel for dinner, not just India food.

In the event you do not have an adapter for converting voltage, the front desk will lend you one to use during your stay.

The rooms are somewhat small, but very clean and recently remodeled.

Much of the hotel is under renovations. The only thing that was not present for right now is a lobby to sit and talk. Much of the building is blocked off and renovations were continuous during our stay. I believe that the 2nd floor was completely blocked off and under renovations. Because of the renovations, some of the areas were very dusty. But, I understand that this is a must anytime a hotel is updated.

The views of the Alps from our room was amazing. I could have stood at the window and looked out all day! We did not have a balcony, but that didn't matter, as the balconies were very small anyway. Our corner room seemed to offer the most space.

Room Tip: It seemed that the corner rooms were the most spacious. The one room that I did see that had a balc...

This hotel is very close to Engelberg station and Mt Titlis Rotair starting point, has nice view facing comfortable rooms, great food and very cordial staff. Good value for money. Indians will feel very homely here. WiFi is there but connections need improvement,

Hotel location is very good. Train station is at walking distance. Scenic beauty from hotel is awesome. Indian food offered is tasty and sufficient. Free wi fi internet is not accessible from room but easily accessible at lobby. Rooms are clean and spacious. Overall very good place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms with view to mountains are great.

Hotel Central is a very nice, friendly and welcoming hotel! Highly recommended for a nice weekend in Engelberg! We even got an all night concert - great fun! The room was newly renovated and of excellent standard.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We loved the hotel location and views from the rooms were superb. Indian food is really very good. One can easily go to Mount titlis by bus or walking. There is a bus from nearest bus station to titlis.I would love to visit this place again and again.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are good and one can view beautiful mountains from the room.
