“Home away for Indians in Switzerland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

Awesome place for Indians to stay in Switzerland. I traveled from Paris to Geneva and from Geneva to Engleberg and finally got a hotel to stay where I can say i felt excellent. Good staff, clean rooms, excellent location and that too a budget hotel. The best thing of the hotel was the Indian food. All the days I stayed there I had the best food, the best Indian food one can have in France and Switzerland. All those traveling there should give a thought to this hotel. You will surely gonna like it.

We chose this hotel because it was one of the cheap ones in Switzerland. We only want a clean, simple hotel as this was our stopover to Italy. Stepping into the lobby we weren't that impressed but we didn't expect much as we know how expensive Switzerland can be. But arriving to our room were blown away. Didn't expect the hotel room to be that impressive for the price we've paid. It was clean, comfortable and modern. A fantastic view of the mountains from our bedroom window. Amazing! Location was also great. We parked at the hotel parking and walked everywhere. I don't know why someone commented on fantastic Indian food though because we've had better. We've had dinner at the restaurant and seeing that the owner was Indian we had high hopes for fantastic indian dinner, but we were a bit disappointed. Another con is that there weren't much parking space. But overall a great hotel!

Yes thats true, If you are Indian, then you would be surely loving Indian Food. If you are loving Indian Food then you MUST stay at Hotel Central as this serves one of the best Indian Food in Switzerland. This is a small nice 3* boutique property in Engelberg, very near to station and is surrounded by other properties in Engelberg. Its a family run hotel with small lobby and about 1-2staff at reception. Its not 24 hour operated as its closes by 10 pm. In winter it transforms into beautiful place and becomes must stay if you are in Engelberg. Double room is good to stay for 2 adults and 1 child only. However Single room is too small to stay. Breakfast is sumptuous. Lunches and dinners are nice to have. Overall, a good hotel to stay with good food and absolutely within your budget.

Room Tip: Take rooms whc has balcony but its often sold out well in advance

We Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in the early winter season. The view from the room was absolutely mesmerizing. Rooms were decent ,had nice storage space and wardrobe. The bathrooms were also neat with a separate shower area.

The Hotel had nice restaurant which served Indian food and also had a cute bar too. The best part was the breakfast which included the Indian delicacies. There was Free WIFI provided. Staff was friendly and welcoming. The hotel is situated right next to Engelberg station and also to the Mount Titlis Flyer. Take a stroll down the lane of hotel to see the breathtaking view of the snow capped mountains. The hotel also provided Universal Charger by giving a deposit of 20 Euros and refunded the same while i gave back on check out.

Room Tip: Suggest to take the 3rd Floor and above rooms to Enjoy the Alps.

Stayed at Central for only 1 night during our recent visit to Engelberg. We were nearly 18 of us and had a ball of time there. It is a very nice property located very close to Engelberg Station. Its not a fancy property but a good one with big rooms. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The Bartender was really good too.
The view from our balcony in the morning was mesmerizing... How much we wished we stayed for one more night there.
In short Good food, good music,lovely place :) Would definitely recommend this place.
