“Location is good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

We stayed from 12.12-14.12.13 for 2 nights. The location is very convenient, so near the main train station and we walked from the stn down the main shopping street Bahnhofstrasse, cross over the river to the old town without having to spend any money on local transport. The hotel staff are friendly and the family room for 4 of us is of acceptable standard, warm and comfortable. Will stay in same hotel if visiting Zurich again.

Third time staying at this hotel within a year. Very comfortable, economical, friendly place. Excellent location, 5 minutes walk from the main railway station. All rooms very acceptable and have all that you need. Definitely worth a try as a holiday vacation or for business stopover with B&B only.

Room Tip: All rooms fine

Can't fault the service at this well located hotel. Nothing was a hassle. The buffet breakfast suited the whole family. The quadruple room was small but perfectly adequate, and
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting an unpretentious place to stay.

If you are looking for a 5min easy walk from the train station and great breakfast - this is your hotel. We travelled with three kids a lot of luggage and stayed only overnight. Small room and small bathroom (shower only) for us 5. Central hating was uncomfortably hot and we had to air the room frequently for heat to escape. Free wi-fi. Basic duvets with flat soft uncomfortably cushions. Fine for 1 night. Given what we got I found the price to be high, but then again when you are paying with ZAR.....

The Hotel Bristol is a great choice for a moderately priced hotel in Zurich. The location is an easy five minute walk from the Zurich train station. Also, within a five minute walk is old town Zurich with its many shops and restaurants and cafes. Main city Zurich with its huge upscale shopping district is another easy walk across the river - probably a 10 minute walk at a leisurely pace.

Rooms and facilities are clean and modern, with free wifi, a business center, and free breakfast. If Beatrice is on duty when you check in you have hit the jackpot! She is a friendly wealth of knowledge and help for the first time traveler to Zurich. For us, her assistance in keeping track of the status of our lost luggage (courtesy of United Airlines) was invaluable.

We would definitely stay at this facility again.

The hotel is quite close to the main railway station.
The tariffs are the best in Zürich considering the localization (quite centric) and the quality of the hotel
It is possible to leave the luggage in the hotel while doing tourism and before moving to another town

I have been here a number of times over the years and this latest visit confirms my previous thoughts. They can be busy so always reserve of course. The location is perfect for me since my client is very close as is the main train station, and downtown Zurich. You can easily walk to Bahnhofstrasse and see all the expensive stores while walking to the lake front. It is of course also close to the old part of town. Very handy and less expensive than the Marriott which is farther away. I was given a room near the end of the small hall so did not experience any noise from folks walking by which is handy as I am a light sleeper.
Rooms are typically small (mine was a slightly bigger one than usual at roughly 9x12 with a bathroom after that. Showers here are tiny so takes a bit of time to get used to not hitting the taps or wall while you clean. (We North Americans are far used to large places, Europeans of course would not find this unusual at all) . The feather pillows are nice but I like more substance under my head so asked for a second one. They have no restaurant but with so many close by this is not an issue for me.
TV is a problem for English speaking people as they have a couple of BBC channels and about 4 in total that are English speaking. Bring an ipad or something as they do now offer free WIFI

Room Tip: Try and get rooms at the end of the halls for a little extra quiet.
