The hotel is ideally situated in Zurich. We were a short distance from the train station and were able to take the train to Lucerne and Bern quite readily. The staff was extremely friendly and always helpful. One morning I left my back pack in the breakfast area. I was desperate because my passport was in it. A member of the staff saw me leave it, retrieved […] it, and my vacation was saved. When I return to Zurich I will definitely stay at the Bristol again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location high price"
This is a nice hotel the facilities are clean and well maintained, breakfast is included. We family of 4 with middle school aged kids- stayed in a quad room that was a very nice size. The location is great not far from the hub of the old town but far enough to be quiet at night. Considering there is no air conditioning it was nice to have the windows […] open without street noise. For American standards it was over priced for the quality of the rooms but you are in Switzerland so it's to be expected. The staff were fine...not offensive but not outstanding.

Super staff. All of them were very helpful and went out of their way to assist us. No AC thought made it tough in the heat to sleep at night, but 2 fans were present which was helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My room was close to restaurant, noisyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Short (less than 10 minute) walk from RR station, clean room, working elevator, good breakfast, comfortable bed, helpful staff (e.g., lent me a scale to determine weight of suitcase prior to heading for airport); all would have been well except that the bathroom had a slight but unmistakable and unpleasant odor of sewage that suggested lax maintenance […] or leaking pipes. Given that this was not a "bargain price" room, I think it reasonable to expect better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, one block from train station"
Small room, quiet setting, clean but no air conditioning. Close to "old town" and train station.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to main train station in downtown Zurich."
Close to main train station. About 1.5 miles from the lake. Exit towards Landesmuseum.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Did the job"
Stayed just one night before catching train to airport. Chose this hotel because it was inexpensive and reasonably close to the train station. It served its purpose well. I expected it to be fairly bare-boned and it was. However, it's clean and the staff is friendly, so I'd recommend it in this situation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to train station"
We had two rooms for a party of 5. There is no air conditioning however they do provide fans in each room which helped. Breakfast is limited to bread, cereal, meat and cheese with no variation day to day. The hotel is close to the train station for an easy few minute walk. It is also close to many restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bristol Small and Hot"
Just about the only good thing about this place was the location. Very close to the train station. Everything else could improve with very little work by the owner/manager. The rooms are very small and I was cutting my leg on the sharp corners of the bed frame because they were sharp and there was only about 16 cm to maneuver around it on each corner. […] Breakfast was marginal with no variation over the 5 days we stayed. The hotel reception people were cold but not rude. They were certainly not motivated to help.

"Good hotel in Zurich"
It was clean and centrally located. One drawback was that there was no air conitioner, and the room got pretty hot during day tiime.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location & Good Service"
This hotel is a short walk to the train station and to the center of Zurich. No frills. Good servcie and great location. The bonus is that breakfast is included.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We selected the Bristol because it was close to the train station. It was only a short walk to the location of the tour bus we had selected. It was a good choice. We enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Busy hotel, clean, good staff"
Overall a good, basic, no-frills hotel. Our room was small, but clean.The breakfast was minimal. Parking was available overnight at the Continental Hotel about one block away, for a price which was reasonable in Zurich. When we arrived, a large group of American college students was hanging out in the lobby, and we were afraid that we had come all the […] way from Boston just to end up in the one hotel in Zurich full of rowdy American college goofs. The manager was helpful, and got us a room somewhat away from them. He also helped us bring our bags into the building. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Expensive for what it is, no view, no charm, day of arrival staff was not helpful, not welcoming, ok location, extremely problematic with parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
Convenient location to the train station and within walking distance of the old city. Very pleasant hotel staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Small room but functional with tiny bathroom. Did have BBC 1&2 on TV. Asked for a quiet room and were given one next to the lift shaft which was very noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"it is not even a motel"
the room size is very small and not clean, no refrigerator and no air conditioner. oveall. very bad experience. no recommendedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ikea-like but very clean and courteous staff."
Staff helped connect to WiFi because a European mobile phone is used to connect. Excellent breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Simple, clean, quiet, low-cost, and close to train"
This is a simple hotel, but it is clean and quiet, with helpful and friendly staff. It is all one could ask for in a budget hotel. It is an easy walk to the train-station, and a few blocks removed from the noisy tourist section.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One Night Only"
The hotel is OK for 1 night. I think it is more suitable for students. The single room was very tiny and the bed was against the wall. It actually reminded me of a college dorm room. I requested a larger room with a queen size bed away from the wall. The receptionist was very kind and quite eager to make my stay as nice as possible. I went out for a […] walk and upon my return I was moved to a much bigger room with a queen size bed and big windows with lots of light. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel near Main Station"
Friendly staff and superb location in downtown. Especially helpful to make copies and printout for business purpose without charging anything.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very expensive for not very much"
For the price that I paid, I would have expected much more than the smallish rooms, and motel-like feeling. There are no electronic key cards, so it is quite inconvenient to drop off the key when you leave, and then have to ask for it every time you want to access your room. Desk service was mediocre, with me having to wait for a couple minutes for […] a reception when checking in, and slight unfriendliness from one receptionist. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is only good quality"
No parking at all; no garage, street parking only kept me up all night worrying about my car. Website says parking is near- it is the street only, desk acted like there was a banner on expedia about the lack of parking. Room was not made up even when we arrived after 1800. Front desk acted like that could not be possible...like it must have been my […] fault or something! Overall they were not ready for my reservation. Room was small and sparce. Breakfast was canned fruits, nothing that could be pointed out as authentically Swiss. Only redeeming aspect was the location next to the Swiss museum. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great little hotel for those traveling on a budget"
We chose Hotel Bristol because it was hard to find a room with triple occupancy in Zurich without spending $600+ a night. Room was super clean but really simple. For the time we spent in our room it was fine. Breakfast was ok but it was free so I really can't complain. The hot chocolate with the hot milk is sooooo good. The hotel staff was FANTASTIC!! […] They helped us with directions and food recommendations. They couldn't have been any more friendly. Hotel is in a great location. Only a couple of minutes walk to the main train station, great Italian restaurant/pizzeria down the street and a couple of minutes walk to "Old Town". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel, friendly staff that were very helpful and multilingual. Hotel is 2 blocks from the Zurich HB and has many shops, bars and cafes around. Will stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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
"lovely place to stay and relax"
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

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.

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.

"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
