"Reasonable Hotel in an Expensive City"
Overall was very happy with our stay, they let us check at 10am, which was really nice given we had just taken an over night train. Hotel was very reasonably priced for the area, and included a decent breakfast. Room and bathroom were clean. Both bathroom and room were small, but compared to other european hotels I'd say were average. Hotel staff was […] friendly spoke good english, and were also helpful. Overall would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I am frequent guest at this hotel , but I am really feeling like a family member visiting , not a guest,,all of the staff are very kind helpful and knowledgeable , service is exceptional , location is super , walking distance to all attractions and transportation,,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, near the main train station"
I have stayed at this hotel a few years ago, and in the menatime it was refurbished and now it feels new and very pleasant. The location of the hotel is very good, within a waking distance from the main train station, and still very quiet, with a tram stop very near, with the breakfast nice and the staff friendly.The main problem of my room, which was […] located on the last floor, was the shape of the ceiling, which in turn was right below the pointed roof. Because of it, there were areas in the room and in the bathroom, which were barely (or not at all) accesible, and I was on continuous alert of banging my head in these places.

"wonderful hotel comfortable clean rooms"
We enjoyed our overnight in Zurich before heading to the Engadine Valley. Hotel was convenient to train, museum, and a nice walk to Lake Zurich.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but clean and modern"
My room was very small but pristine. everything was there that I needed and the location was perfect, short walk from the train station and Old Town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms are small and basic-plain, it's ok for a short stay, as for Switzerland this price range is on the lower end. 15 min walk to the center or take the tramway a couple of stops.Free WIFI is a plusGenuine Expedia guest review
"FAMILY VACATION IN ZURICH"
NEAT AND CLEAN, WITH HELPFUL STAFF. NICE BREAKFAST. VERY CLOSE TO TOWN WITH ALOT OF RESTAURANTS AND SHOPS, AS WELL AS THE TRAIN STATION. THE RATES ARE MORE REASONABLE THAN MOST OF THE HOTELS IN ZURICH.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Vey comfortable. Nice breakfast."
A nice experience, although they forgot to clean the room one day. Bathroom is completely new - which is very nice. Better be called shower-room as there is no bath - but its fine since it is brand new.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great value in an expensive city"
If you're looking for opulence, there are plenty of hotels in Zurich that will give you that — with a price tag to match. But if you're looking for a clean, quiet stay with not a lot of frills and a great location, it's hard to beat the Bristol. A very short walk away from the "Old Town" and from the famed train station, from which you can get to just […] about anywhere in Europe. A great value in a city where things tend to be on the pricey side. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Location of hotel was great. 5 minute walk to train station and less than 5 minute walk to Old Town. Only negative was bed wasn't very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel as home base when in Zurich"
Historic hotel that was easy to find as we'll as use for home site. We were close to everything we wanted to do and see in Zurich. Would stay again. Only improvement suggested is front desk upon sign-in was not friendly and never bothered to smile.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for every one."
though everything is good here, the breakfast needs improvement. Not much variety here especially for vegetariansGenuine Expedia guest review
"good minimum frills hotel. fine for businessman p"
slightly small rooms but compensates with convenient location. very decent cost-valueGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good choice, just not eco-friendly."
Functional, clean and well-located. Free internet, decent breakfast and friendly staff. My only (small) problem was that they changed the towels daily although they had a card in the bathroom indicating they are eco-friendly and would only change the towels if we put them on the floor. Also, the pillow was bad and gave me a stiff neck.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is "no-frills" but this is not to be interpreted in a negative way. The receptionist was polite and multi-lingual. My room was clean.with small but perfectly adequate bathroom with a nice shower and heated towels (no freebie shampoos or lotions). Included breakfast was certainly adequate but definitely "no frills." Easy walk to/from Central […] Station and trolleys. Right next to the "old quarter." This hotel should be inexpensive compared to the others you might be considering. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything fine but basic. Would have expected a bit more for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing hotel and staff....."
There are two people that made this trip/vacation to Zurich amazing and they are Beatrice and Selina they are the best service desk staff my family and I ever met, we were greeted with a big smile and help us with every questions that we had about the city... They even check the platform number for us before we left the hotel. This hotel will be in […] my family's a must visit everytime we go to Zurich. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for family on a (non-Swiss) budget"
We had a super stay at the Bristol Hotel and would definitely stay here again. Convenient location - easily walkable from the train station and for sight-seeing in the city center, even with our young toddler, the location was great. Affordable price (by Swiss standards) that included a very filling breakfast. And most importantly, the rooms are spotless. […] Yes, the room is simplistic but it's efficiently designed and seriously was one of the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in. We are frequent travelers and would definitely come back.

"Convenient hotel location"
Location is very handy to the bahnhof and the sites of Zurich. All staff members we interacted with were very helpful.....even letting us eat breakfast early because of an early flight. Overall, good value choice in an expensive city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in the heart of Zurich."
The Bristol Hotel is an excellent hotel for anyone looking to stay in Zurich. The hotel was very clean, the staff were gracious and helpful, and you got a good deal for the price especially with the included breakfast. The location could not be more perfect - just a few blocks walking and you are in the heart of the city. We would definitely come back […] and recommend it to others.

Hotel was convenient (5 min walk) to train station. Staff is friendly and helpful. Room was modern and clean. Great value for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Affordable Simplicity in Zurich"
I found that this hotel matched the description exactly. I booked here because out of all the hotels that offered Wifi and breakfast in Zurich it was the cheapest with decent reviews. It is a family owned hotel, with a staffed 24 hr reception desk. It is within 10 -15 minutes walking distance of the train station, and is in a quiet area of town. The […] rooms are clean, simple, and have been recently updated with modern furnishings. There is no air con, but a fan is provided. Even though my room was facing the street with the windows open to let in cool air, I didn't have problems with street noise. The reception staff were friendly and recommended a great restaurant for dinner. The wifi in the hotel is free and breakfast was included in the price. The breakfast was simple with no frills, but definitely offered the basic selection in a clean and spacious place to sit. I was very pleased and would definitely stay here again if I was called to business in Zurich. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to rail station, shops, restaurants"
Convenient access to the rail station. Very clean. Staff provided breakfast rolls and coffee as we were unable to partake of the included breakfast. This was our second time to stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good hotel to walk from to see the "old-city""
The rooms are a little small to move around in, but the good condition of the hotel and it's proximity to the old city of Zurich (with all it's beauty and atractions) make this hotel a good choice for the traveller. Also, the free, all-included breakfast buffet is excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My Hotel Bristol experience"
The hotel staff were friendly. and helpful. I had taken a very early train from Geneva and arrived in Zurich much earlier than check-in time but they immediately gave me a room. I appreciated this gesture since it gave me some time to freshen up, relax and get myself organized before exploring the city sights. The location is great too. It is about […] a 10 minute walk to the train station and the bus terminal where one can sign up for the tours. It is also walking distance to the shopping areas and the restaurants. I booked the hotel at the last minnute but got a really good price. It came with a free continental breakfast which was not bad. Overall, I would definitely recommend the hotel to a friend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location was excellent. Tram directly across the street took us to the center of town within 5 minutes. The lobby was not at all inviting. The room was extremely small. The staff was pleasant. However, at checkout they asked for payment of a city tax. My reservaon stated that taxes were included but I was told it did not apply to the city tax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This hotel needs Air conditioning"
The location is perfect. The room is clean, breakfast is great and the staff is nice and helpful. The only problem is no air conditioning in the building. I assume air conditioning is a default feature of a hotel so that really surprised us. Fortunately it is May not August.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good service, bad room"
Rooms are tiny compared even to European rooms and very, very noisy.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great staff, very cordial. Breakfast was ok but not great. Excellent location. Lacked some amenities like a room safe and air conditioning. Very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The people working the front desk were always so very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was only 5 or so minutes from the Hauptbanhof (train station). There was easy access to the trams and near the Limmat River. Hotel comfortable and adequate amenities with plentiful breakfast choices included in room price. Reception and staff very friendly and helpful. The room was sparse but comfortable for a short stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location near train station"
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room clean. Free internet worked well. Close to train station and old town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay at Bristol Hotel"
Being from the U.S. and only spending 2 full days in Zurich, this hotel was perfect for me. I took the train from the airport into the City and easily found my way to the hotel from the train station on foot without using any GPS. Contrary to other reviews, it was very easy to find. Just be smart. Beds are small, the sheets are a little sketchy but […] other than that everything was perfect. Really clean room and bathroom, warm shower, fast free internet, and a desk & closet in my room. I couldn't adjust the temperature in my room, so that was kinda a bummer, but it didn't really bother me. Plenty of outlets in the room, a nice tv with some great Soccer/Futbol matches on it. I also enjoyed the breakfast they offered. Plenty to choose from, and a clean environment to eat in. I'd highly recommend this hotel to others staying in the area, especially if it were small groups of people traveling. The price was comparable to any US hotel a night, so it wasn't breaking the bank considering I was staying in the most expensive city to live in, in the whole world. Aside from the hotel, Zurich was absolutely incredible, most beautiful city I've ever been to. The city is like cleaner and way better version of San Francisco haha. You can get anywhere you want on foot or by Tram and food and free wifi isn't hard to come (you just have to suck it up and get starbucks somewhere haha). Be prepared for cold weather pending what season you're traveling there though. Also the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and all spoke very well English. All in all, between my stay at the hotel and Zurich itself, I hope to be back in the city and I would happily stay at the same hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel Zurich"
Brst hotel. Room and staff very nace Good location to city center and main stationGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed for a one night layover in Zurich and picked the hotel for it's location. It was central to the train station and old town Zurich. Easy walking distance. The room was nothing fancy but served it's purpose. We were traveling as a couple with 2 teen children, thus hard to find a large room. I would recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location of this hotel near the train station is wonderful. the neighborhood offers easy access to dining and shopping. The hotel is clean, but the rooms are small and a 2-person bed is two singles pushed together.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It stayed at the Bristol at the beginning of my trip and a month later at the end. Conveniently located close to the train station, clean, well priced, generous breakfast buffet. Simple and functional double room. Well heated in the minus 15 degree centigrade weather this February. Friendly, helpful staff at the reception.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent for the money and a short stay"
Stayed one night to recuperate from the flight from US and do some Zurich sightseeing. The hotel is very conveniently located near train station and old town/shopping district. The hotel itself may need some facelift but the room was clean and the service was great. A very good value for the money given overall exorbitant Zurich hotel prices.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Zurich Hotel location"
Great hotel location in Zurich---10 minute walk from main train station. Surrounded by great restaurants. Fair value---still expensive (it's Zurich). No bar or restaurant in hotel. You don't need one though as ones are nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean hotel with convenience location"
The Zurich Bristol is recently renovated, clean, and very conveniently located near the Hauptbahnhof (main train station). The rooms are clean, neat, and generally comfortable. The bathroom is clean and had LOTS of water pressure (although a very small shower, like most European hotels.) We were on the 1st floor, so there was quite a bit of street noise, […] but they had electric hurricane style shutters on the window that kept most of the noise out when closed. The breakfast wasn't great, but was adequate. Hotel staff was friendly and attentive as needed. My only real complaint was that the mattresses were pretty low quality (felt springs jabbing me at times). I would definitely stay again for the price/cleanliness/location package.

It is very close to the train station --5 -10 minutes walking. The hotel room is quite small but it is ok for two adults with 2 small bed. Hotel provides free internet. Room is clean. breakfast is included and nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very conveniently located near the Zurich main station, it is about a 6 ~ 7 minute walk from platform number 16. It is a little tricky to locate, but is very close to Hotel Arlette. The hotel is very small but the rooms are decent sized and clean. Don't expect it to be a Marriott, but it has most things you need. No fridge or coffee maker in the room, […] but you do have a hair dryer and a nice shower (no bathtub). You can buy tea/coffee from the lobby for 3 chf and there are a whole bunch of restaurants and shops within a few minutes walking distance. The breakfast buffet (included in the stay) is fabulous. It is served from 6:30 to 10 am. Has bread, cereals, boiled eggs, various cheeses and jams, cold cuts, tea/coffee/milk, a variety of yoghurts, etc. The pillows in the room are too soft. The beds are comfortable. The staff is very friendly and speak fluent English. You can get a free safe to use (in the lobby) if you ask for it. The TV has many channels (30 to 40 are in English). If you have a lot of luggage, it can be an uncomfortable walk from the Main station to the hotel. Fare from the Main station to Zurich Airport is about 6 chf and takes 10 minutes (each way). Not worth using the hotel bus for around 23 chf per person (but the rate goes down with increasing number of people in the travel group). I would use this hotel again but the key points are clean, compact, decent, great value, fabulous breakfast, convenient location, friendly staff, no frills. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just what I was looking for"
My room was available early which made the whole day go better. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is convenient to the main train station and an easy walk to the old section of the city. Breakfast was good enoughGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Zurich is espensive"
Minimalist room, but beds were comfortable. Breakfast buffet was extremely limited. Good location. Hotel was pricey, but as we soon discovered, all of Zurich and Switzerland is extremely pricy. We had three, my husband, me and our daughter, and finding rooms for three is difficult, but the hotel room had adequate space.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice, simple hotel in good location"
We stayed at the Bristol at the end of our Switzerland journey. It was clean, simple and convenient to getting to/from the train station. It was the least decorative and smallest of the places we stayed. There was not much going on right around the hotel (especially on a Sunday), so it was quiet. The service was nice. It was a fine, no-frills place […] to stay in Zurich. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
