We should change dirty towels. The room was very small and the bed location was not good (in the smallest high of the room as it was on the last floor). While coming to the hotel we asked a girl at the reception to help us in one little problem and to make a call to the Zurich airport car rental and she answered that we should do that ourselves.

Hotel very well located and very organized. The room was very small. We had problem to access the internet in the room because each equipment needed different password. One of the ladies at the reception was very rude to us when we tried to understand what was going on. Breakfast is good. TV in the room and elevators were working. Many mosquitos when we openned the bathroom window to air the environment.

The location of the hotel was perfect. Very close to restaurants and shopping. However, it was difficult to sleep in the night. There was traffic outside our windows the whole night. There was no air condition so we kept the windows open (it was nearly +30 outside). It is probably better when the windows are closed.

The Bristol Hotel is a clean, quiet and centrally located hotel: an excellent value for a family stay in Zurich. The room was quiet, clean and spacious, and easily accommodated a family of four. The breakfast was excellent with tasty, healthy and varied choices. The location of the hotel is perfect. The hotel is an easy walk from the train station and a great base for exploring the city. Highly recommended.

Our family of 4 stayed in a quadruple room. This was modern, spacious, very clean and had a lovely ensuite bathroom. The breakfast was also rated very highly by us all. The hotel is very conveniently situated-it was only a short walk to the main railway station, and also into the main city. Would recommend this hotel.

We had a Superior Room which was excellent in every respect for a 3 night stay. All staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. While our room was not at the front, with our windows open for ventilation (no aircon) traffic noise was quite obvious in the morning and evening peak hours. While the connection fee charged was reasonable, a hotel of this class in a city such as Zurich should today be providing free wifi connections in guest rooms and the foyer lounge. Zurich is an expensive city and in these terms we believe the Bristol provided real value for money

Our group stayed for two nights and had a very pleasant time. The service was excellent and the room was clean. The room was a little hot so we opened the window. Unfortunately this allowed in the bugs. No screens on the windows. A VERY SMALL COMPLAINT to a very nice hotel and staff. The breakfast set out each day was very well maintained and kept very, very clean. Job well done by the person doing the breakfast.

This was my first visit to Zurich and Switzerland and I was very impressed - I will return someday and stay longer. Hotel Bristol was perfect for my stay. It was very convenient to the Main Rail Station and to the city center.The room was very clean and provided everything I needed. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the early opening time (0630) was perfect for my schedule. The staff was very friendly and most helpful.

This is a simple hotel offering budget stay for Swiss standards (the Swiss Franc is way too expensive and Switzerland is also a very expensive country). Although it was a little expensive for what it offers, compared to the other hotels in Zurich it had the best avaiable relation between price and quality at the time. The excellent surprise though was that the night receptionist spoke many languages including Portuguese. He was very solicitous, helping us with the directions in order to find the car rental company's office so we could return our rented car during Zurich's night.

The hotel is very nice and the staff was excellent and helpful. The location is very convenient to transportation with the train station and Zurich Central Tram/Bus stations close by. My room was quiet, clean and roomy. Additionally, they offered a service to wash a bag (theirs) of clothing for 15 chf. A real bargain in Switzerland. There is also Internet access available in the room via an ethernet cable at no charge.

Good location near the train station and major museum. It would be helpful to include directions on how to reach the hotel by foot from the train station, particularly since one needs to exit the train station on the side by the museum rather than by the main entrance towards the city center. Hotel Bristol is located on a quiet street and has a good breakfast with a variety of foods. Rooms are spacious but plainly furnished.

I just stay in Zurich for couple of days but I have to say that the location of the hotel is really good, you have the old town, pubs, restaurants, shops and everything close to you. The staff at the hotel is very kind and available. The room was very clean and nice. The bathroom was also very clean and with good shower. I liked the hotel a lot! So I reccomend you to choose Hotel Bristol if you are planning to visit Zurich.

The hotel was simple but really nice, the bedroom very clean and tidy, the breakfast area clean and the breakfast good. High competence and kindness of employees, able to speak fluent english. The prize is high for my standard but not for Zurich where, I think, is not easy to find the same quality/price ratio
