Bristol Hotel Zurich
Ranked #43 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Reviewed 3 August 2014

The hotel is just a few meters from the closest tram stop. The tram takes 3 minutes to Zürich Hauptbahnhof. The guest rooms appeared to be pretty newly refurbished and were nice and clean. Free WiFi in the guest rooms (which is something to be taken for granted today). The breakfast was like a continental hotel breakfast (not to be compared with Norwegian hotel breakfasts!), but we filled our stomaches and were happy. That is the most important.

The guest rooms were quiet and we did not experience noise from the street.

The price was also nice for Swiss price levels. I am happy to stay at this hotel again another time. Very helpful and friendly staff! Thumbs up!

Stayed one night on our return. The hotel was easy to find and a short walking distance from the train station. Staff very friendly and recommended some good local restaurants. Good choice if you want to be near the station/airport

The hotel is a five minute walk from the train station. We loved the spacious room and fabulous breakfast. The staff were friendly and very helpful in suggesting transportation options to get to the airport.

We have stayed here on three separate occasions over the past several years. We stayed in the least expensive rooms since this was just a night of rest before or after the long flight from USA.

It has always been very clean and in excellent repair. The breakfasts are plentiful and very fresh and the staff friendly and helpful. Most importantly, it is a short walk from the bahnhof which gets us to the short train ride to and from the airport easily. It is also right on the edge of central Zurich - shopping, bars, restaurants and the riverside walks. It's not particulary inexpensive, but what is inexpensive in Zurich? The convenience, comfort and cleanliness make up for a slightly higher price than could be found elsewhere. The only drawback is the lack of A/C (common in Switzerland) and it could be a little uncomfortable on a very warm humid night.

All in all, recommended with no complaints.

We stayed for one night at the Bristol Hotel in Zurich, it is a short 10 minute walk over the bridge from the train station. Good location, only a 10 minute walk and you were in the main centre. The hotel was basic but clean, it is the equivalent to a travel lodge in the UK. However, the bed was one of the most uncomfortable beds I have slept on, such a soft foam mattress!
The breakfast was included, nice minimal cold buffet. Freshly cooked pastries and rolls, basic but filling.
In the afternoon of the day we stayed we were at reception asking a question when a guest came up and asked for his key, she told the guest to help himself from the wall where all the keys were. We thought this was nat very safe and decided to hang onto our room key, even though it had a weight on it.
Staff were nice.

Good stay apart from the bed and key safety.

1. Rude / cold front desk employee . Not quite helpful with directions and what places to see or where to eat. Needs to be re educated with regard to being a front desk personnel. Or better still don't place her on front as it is a major turn off if you're trying to sell your hotel.

Observed her being rude to another guest checking in.



2. Housekeeping supervisor very nice . Took time to converse with us while having breakfast .


3. Breakfast buffet is good.

4. Room is ok but the their bathroom has a bad odour. (5th floor room).

5. No free wifi in the rooms.

6. But pricey especially with menial amenities and rude front desk personnel.
