Reviewed 29 January 2014

Our first trip to Zermatt in January 2014 which won't be our last as we must go back and a big part of the must will be that we stay at the Hotel Bristol.
What a delightful find was this hotel. Staff were super efficient, very friendly and always eager to help with any request. We felt so at home and relaxed being welcomed so fulsomely.
The location is fantastic, right on the bus stop to the ski lifts and only a brief 1 minute walk to the Main Street.
Our room was great, plenty of space by European standards and the bathroom was excellent.
Breakfast was included in our tariff and it was first class.
We loved Zermatt, such a beautiful place and are determined to return. When we do, we will definitely be staying at the hotel Bristol.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled as a couple

Francis (the owner) was so wonderful. He knows everything about Zermatt and skiing. Great views of the Matterhorn on a clear day and there's very good complimentary breakfast with lots of choices of great food. At 6:00 Francis and his wife Josephine host an apero with prosecco and delicious passed hors d'oeuvres. We had a terrific stay and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

We booked this 3-day, 2-night long weekend months ago, and have been blessed with perfect fresh snow, and bright blue sky, the view from the bedroom was incredible, straight on the Matterhorn, what else to ask for?
We asked to be moved to another room when we arrived as it did smell of cigarette smoke. We got upgraded with one of the top floor rooms, very spacious, very clean, with nice balcony and of course full view on the Matterhorn, from the bed. The staff was very friendly, everyone one of them. Breakfast was one of the best I ever had (I am on a gluten free diet and they had so much choice of gluten free bread, cakes, cereal). The spa area is small but perfect for what you need after a long day out skiing in the cold.
It is very quiet even though it's right next to a busy bar. We will definitely go back there next time we are in Zermatt.

Room Tip: The room we had under the roof was fabulous, quiet with perfect view, number 503 if you can chose.

Hotel Brisol has great customer service and wonderful location. The staff helped us at every turn. We asked for a room with a view of the Matterhorn and we had an awesome view. There is a kids room which our children loved and the breakfast was top notch. Wonderful town and great experience at the Hotel Bristol!

Room Tip: Room 308 has a wonderful view of the Matterhorn.

This well -priced hotel, in very expensive Switzerland, was all we could ask for. Room was immaculate, bed comfortable and bathroom small but adequate. We paid extra for a "room with a view" of the Matterhorn, but unfortunately the clouds covered it until the day we left! Breakfast was very good with lots of choices.

Room Tip: Look at the weather report before paying extra for a view room.

Excellent location in the middle of town. The room was clean and nicely furnished with unobstructed views of the Matterhorn. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing, including a wide selection of cheeses from all over Switzerland, breads including some gluten free, fruit, cereal, eggs, pancakes, yogurt, and more than I can recall right now. I'll be back

This hotel is right in-between train station & cable car station, about 10 minutes each way. The bridge nearby is a good place to take some pictures with Matterhorn as background. The room size is OK, but bathroom is really small. Breakfast is quite good.
