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.

We recently spent 6 nights at the Hotel Cristal in Grimentz. We found the entire staff to be very friendly whether the conversation was in French or in English. The location in great, especially since you can ski almost to the hotel at the end of the day from either Grimentz or Zinal. The ski room was adequate but a... More

The Hotel is located close to the lifts and a good departing point for the day. Our room was small but well furnished and comfy. In the small bathroom we missed a place for the towels. Breakfast was ok though not lavish and the slection limited. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient.

Stayed at Hotel Cristal for 5 nights with my teenage son and met some friends there. Great place to stay, super friendly hotel, great location, excellent food. Loic the manager and his staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The ski area is varied, off piste extensive, conditions good during our stay and overall a great holiday....

We have spent a weekend at the Cristal hotel. The staff is very welcoming, attentive and helpful. We had a superior room with balcony on the 3rd floor. The room wasn't very large but it was perfectly fine. 2 comments on our room location though: we were close to the elevator engine so it was sometimes noisy late and early... More

We visited Hotel Cristal in Grimentz for a week in January as a group of 4. The hotel was clean and tidy, and very welcoming throughout our stay. The reception and communal areas have a great warm feeling to it and really makes you feel at home. The rooms are modern, and are always cleaned daily by the cleaner making... More

We stayed 2 nights with 2 kids (7 and 8 years) during Christmas holidays. The hotel is located a few minutes from the center of the authentic village of Grimentz. Love this village full of wooden "Chalets". The hotel is also located only a few minutes from the gondola. Very friendly and helpful hotel staff. Clean room with balcony and... More

This is a nice place. It is about 200m walk to gondola with a steep climb up a lot of steps - This is not great but when you get up high the skiing is ace (I am a decent intermediate). Sure there are a a few T bars but the scenery and complete lack of crowds makes up for... More
