Considerig prices in Zurich, the hotel was ok.

Pros: We'd wish that prices were a bit more reasonable, considering that this hotel is average.
Location: Accessibility to sights, shopping, the Duomo, and the train station is good and easy.
This hotel was ok, claen, generally satisfactory, but small. Hotel and other prices in Zurich are expensive............Switzerland, after all, is the most expensive country in Europe. Again, the hotel was ok. The staff and attentive and helpful. Breakfast was good and comprehensive, with an array of choices.

Fantastic location and brilliant staff

I stayed at the Bristol on my last visit to Zurich and I'm attending a conference in August 2014 so I'll be staying there again.  It is perfectly located, reasonably priced, and meticulously run.  Few hotels I have stayed in have ever matched it for service or for competence of staff.

Nice little hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
It was a nice hotel close to the Unviersity area. It's not fancy, but it was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was good. The room was small but it had everything I needed - power and internet. If you want fantastic in Zurich you will have to pay a lot more, but this was a good value and nice place to stay.

good value and location

The location was great - we walked 3 blocks from the train station on arrival (it's an easy $5 trip from the airport by train to central Zurich). Everything is nearby. The hotel and room were spotlessly clean - typical for this country. The room resembled a college dorm - spartan furnishings, but good enough for our purposes. The lobby had a computer for internet use, which was useful. The breakfast included in the rate was okay. The bathroom was clean and modern. Only there was no hook to hang an article of clothing. Our trouble with the staff was that we needed to sleep a little upon arrival in the daytime after all night travel and jet lag and they seemed to be disturbed about this. They knocked on the door and the desk called us on the phone for no reason. I didn't know permission was needed to use the room in the daytime.

Hotel Bristol

This is a solid hotel with friendly, helpful staff, a great location, and very clean rooms. Be aware, though, that it's a no frills, 3 star place with thin walls (I think it should be rated 2 star). Those who want an elegant Zurich hotel should look elsewhere.

This hotel has an option of a family room. The four of us slept great in one room. There was plenty of room. Good breakfast option and the location was within walking distance of the train station and all Zurich sights. I highly recommend this hotel.
