We were recommended to stay in Grimentz - a beautiful classic mountain village - for our trip, so we were looking for a place to stay. We chose Hotel Cristal because it was not so expensive as another hotels in the area, (attention: it doesn't mean it was chip, nothing is cheap in CH). We liked the good location of... More

The plusses: welcoming reception, practically located, parking by the hotel, adequate choice of food at breakfast, decent half boarding option. The minuses: strong kitchen smell in the whole hotel (catering to other places?), slow wifi, rather small room with very low bed, having to set the table for breakfast.

We stayed at Cristal for four nights. This is a very clean and comfortable hotel, located at the edge of the village around 100 meters from Coop supermarket and 300 meters from the Grimentz and Zinal ski gondolas. Olivier is a wonderful, helpful and sincere host. The room was very clean and pleasant too, with a balcony and stunning views... More

Stayed here one night recently while hiking the Haut Route. This is a well-run, very friendly place. The staff could not have been more courteous and welcoming. The meals were very good and so was the service. Thanks

My wife and I really enjoyed our time in the postcard perfect village of Grimentz in the French speaking Valais region of Switzerland. We experienced Swiss hospitality at it's best with a very clean and comfortable room, good breakfasts and delicious 3 course dinners in our half board package. Additional amenities, summer and winter packages are shown on the hotel's... More

A friend recommended we stay in Grimentz while we were driving through the region. We found Hotel Cristal on TripAdvisor and so happy we stayed there. We were a group of friends, for most it was their first trip to Switzerland, and it was a great experience for everyone! We arrived late and the kitchen stayed open a bit later... More

A modern feel to a chalet style hotel, located a few minutes walk from the town centre but only metres from a bus stop; ideally located. Friendly helpful staff. Good buffet breakfast. Rooms fine with best balcony views at the front and side.

“Avoid a room close to the elevator (especially on 3rd floor I think), try to get one on either sides of the hotel, not in the middle.”
