The plusses: welcoming reception, practically located, parking by the hotel, adequate choice of food at breakfast, decent half boarding option. The minuses: strong kitchen smell in the whole hotel (catering to other places?), slow wifi, rather small room with very low bed, having to set the table for breakfast.

We stayed at Cristal for four nights. This is a very clean and comfortable hotel, located at the edge of the village around 100 meters from Coop supermarket and 300 meters from the Grimentz and Zinal ski gondolas. Olivier is a wonderful, helpful and sincere host. The room was very clean and pleasant too, with a balcony and stunning views... More

Stayed here one night recently while hiking the Haut Route. This is a well-run, very friendly place. The staff could not have been more courteous and welcoming. The meals were very good and so was the service. Thanks

My wife and I really enjoyed our time in the postcard perfect village of Grimentz in the French speaking Valais region of Switzerland. We experienced Swiss hospitality at it's best with a very clean and comfortable room, good breakfasts and delicious 3 course dinners in our half board package. Additional amenities, summer and winter packages are shown on the hotel's... More

Stayed for two nights on a walking trip. Staff were fantastic. Room was excellent, with a balcony and very clean. Food in the restaurant was amazing - excellent presentation by a talented chef. Excellent location too.

A friend recommended we stay in Grimentz while we were driving through the region. We found Hotel Cristal on TripAdvisor and so happy we stayed there. We were a group of friends, for most it was their first trip to Switzerland, and it was a great experience for everyone! We arrived late and the kitchen stayed open a bit later... More

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.
