“Great location, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We went as a family. After asking for a deluxe room for 4, the hotel politely told us they were giving us two rooms instead. We had luggage that didn't follow. They were most helpful. Comfortable, cozy and very clean rooms. Excellent location.

Hotel is located 10 minute walk from the main Zurich station and about 5 minutes to the old town / river. About 15 minutes to the bus station.
We had a fair sized room which looked down onto a side street. No aircon but we was glad a fan was in the room as it was hot during our stay.
Room itself was clean and comfortable.
Breakfast had a good variety of the normal continental style so no complaints there.
Free internet in reception and a hand drinks machine was also there.(Free tea/coffee).
Hotel will book day trips for you and there is leaflets in reception.
Would choose to stay here again as we had a pleasant trip.

I was pleasently suprised by Hotel Bristol. Good location, clean, quiet rooms (at least those to the back) and decent breakfast. I had a single room and found a good deal (ca. 110 Eur per night). The rates advertised on the homepage (up to 160 Eur) seem a bit pricey. The room was reasonably sized for a single room, bathroom was newer and cleaner than expected.

As others have noted the location is good, close to the train station, Niederdorf with all its Restaurant and also close to ETH and University of Zürich. There is free internet (wifi and via ethernet) which worked well.

I have two complaints, the bed was terribly soft and gave me some back pain. The temperature of the shower changed rapidly and to temperatures high enough to irritate skin for half an hour. A coworker who stayed at Hotel Bristol had the same problem.

from location to the metro to luggage handling and storage, room amenities and food provisions-breakfast and flowing drinks at the lobby, the hotel did not fail to meet what were needed for a comfortable stay while touring Zurich and nearby areas of Germany. The hotel staff was kind enough to even explain to us where to find the items we needed for purchase, as well as the kind of cuisine offered in which particular place. will definitely make this my lodging place the next time my family goes to Zurich en route to Lucerne.

This hotel is at an unbeatable location. 5 min walk to the train station. There are tons of restaurants nearby. The configuration of the quad room was excellent and more spacious than I thought. Be aware of the summer heat on the top floor. It can get quite warm as there is no AC. Breakfast is pretty decent with a good selection of deli meat, boiled egg, cereral and etc. I would stay at this place on my next visit to Zurich. Customer service is pretty good and it has a small area for coffee and tea in the lobby.

You cannot imagine how easy it is to get to this hotel! Once you get out of Zurich's main train station, hop onto tram no.4 and it will bring you to the doorstep of Hotel Bristol.
Once we arrived, we were greeted by the megawatt smile from Selina (the front desk reception). She was extremely warm and helpful throughout our stay.
The room was small but clean. The beds are comfortable and we liked the toiletries provided We really enjoyed the convenience of this place.
Our only wish is that the breakfast spread could be wider.
