Exceptional 10.0
Love to stay again
They gave us a 3rd floor corner room so we could see the river from all windows. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Both room service and breakfast buffet food was excellent. Front desk staff friendly and helpful.

Good Times in Central Zurich
The Central Plaza Hotel is the perfect place to stay while in Zurich. My wife and I recently stayed there for 8 nights. We had stayed there 5 or 6 other times over the years. It has always been wonderful. Great accomodations, 3 nice restaurants, excellent and friendly staff, a block and a half from the main train station, and within easy walking distance of the Bahnhofstrasse, Lake Zurich and many other key points of interest.

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.

Very Good 8.0
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.
