Hotel Bristol at Zermatt

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel, its about 7-8mins walk from the Zermatt train station. The property is located along the Vispa river offering picturesque views of the St. Mauritius church and the Matterhorn peak from the guest rooms.

Check in was smooth and we got room no.502 located on the 5th floor, which is the top of the hotel. The hotel has an elevator so it was no problem for us. Our Double room with Matterhorn view was spacious with a nice walk-in wardrobe area offering loads of storage space. In-room wifi was good and stable.

Matterhorn facing rooms all have balconies furnished with sun umbrellas, tables and chairs for guests who wish to hang out with a cuppa while taking in the scenery.

Bathroom was clean and spacious too.

Breakfast is served at the breakfast room located at the Ground floor (7-10am daily). A rather extensive buffet spread completed with a DIY eggs & pancake station.

Very sweet watermelons!

I made my own pancakes! Quite easy to do with the ready batter and they tasted pretty good too. Some of their breakfast rolls were yummy as well.

The lobby with reception counter and nice cozy lounging area and a bar. Maps and brochures can be found at the entrance. Complimentary internet corner is located at the basement. This hotel is pets friendly too.

There are other amenities located at the basement which we didn't explore, a wellness center and bowling alley are listed on the hotel's website. This hotel also adopts a 11pm lock up policy. Guests can access the main door using their room cards.

Zermatt is a really small town and one could literally walk to everywhere on foot. Two major supermarkets, COOP & Migros, can be found in the town center. There is also a double storey McDonald's that opens till 11pm daily.
