Bristol Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room I had in the corner was of a good size, and the bed was decent, but the artwork inside was hideous and laughable. I really like that breakfast was included because this meant that I didn't have to search Zurich for a low cost breakfast (eating out in the city is expensive).

The hotel has a great location near the city centre. The room is basic and accommodates the needs for a short eurotrip stay.

The hotel was perfectly fine and average and the proximity to everything is great. Biggest problem is no air conditioning and it was blistering hot during our visit. Had a fan in the room but it did little to help. Fair warning.

Staff was friendly, helpful and professional. Only complaint is that the hotel wasn't air conditioned however, I must admit that it was not a huge problem even in July.

This hotel is centrally located and a prefect place to stay for an affordable price during your time in Zurich. It is an independent hotel and provides the necessary amenities for a pleasant stay.

Close to main train station. About a 5 minute walk to the train station.Staff were very friendly an helpful. Good for an over night stay between transit.

Always enjoy staying at the Hotel Bristol. Few steps from the HB and City Center. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is simple and nice. Great value if you need a place in expensive Zurich

The Bristol is a small, but nice hotel near downtown Zurich. Best part of this hotel is the location, very close to the historic city and nightlife.

Overall, a nice hotel in the center of the old part of Zuhrich. Very close to all the sights, river, and the lake. Really nice place to stay for a short term stay like a weekend.

Good location near lots of reftaurants.easy to find parking and a short walk to train station.

I stayed only for a night. It's the worst hotel I've been too. Room has no AC. The receptionist was ill-mannered. No customer service at all!

Excellent location, clean rooms, well informed English speaking staff,

Easy access from train station and to mid-town area of Zurich. Small room with low ceilings (I'm 6'2"). Good breakfast buffet, which was helpful since the price of food in Switzerland is quite high.

Very basic amenities, but perfect to stay a few days.

Needed a hotel near the train station as I had an early flight I needed to get to. It is indeed convenient. Also relatively close to all of the touristy areas of Zurich. The hotel itself is basic, but with most amenities one would need. Good breakfast, free wifi, small business center and extremely helpful staff. The bedroom was small, sparse, but adequate. Overall, this hotel would be a good single night choice if you need to be near the train station.

good deal, good location. Just short walk from the train station.

I have seen some quirky reviews of the Hotel Bristol, and just want to say that this place is great! Zurich is a pricey place to stay, but Hotel Bristol offers reasonably priced rooms minutes from the train station. It is exceptionally clean, a super bathroom, comfortable beds, a friendly staff, and an excellent breakfast. I found nothing to complain about. If you want luxury, have fun spending triple the amount, but why not save it for the cost of a Zurich restaurant?

Probably my worst hotel experience!! Comfort is zero! Couldn't sleep at all because of the bed.

I stayed in this hotel for one night, and had to get to the airport early in the morning. It is located a 5 min walk away from the Zurich train station, in a quiet street that is also a short walk away from the center of town. Amenities are in perfect shape and very clean. Staff was very kind and helpful. Because of my early departure, they offered to prepare a take away breakfast bag for me, which I much appreciated. I warmly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is a nice, clean, friendly property located close to the train station, with reasonable rates. If you need numerous amenities,look elsewhere, but if you can appreciate good value, then this is a good place for you.
