This is a traditional European-style establishment within a five-minute walk of central station. Located just across the Limmat from Zurich's main railway, the Hotel Bristol Zurich is a basic small hotel that perfectly services budget travelers wanting to be close to the center of town. A ten-minute walk north of Niederdorf, the Old Town where most of Zurich's nightlife takes place, this hotel has trams, trains and the upscale shopping of Bahnhofstrasse all within close range. Rooms are typically European -- bright, neat and compact with bathrooms kept clean and up-to-date. At last check there were no internet facilities, but staff here is renowned for friendliness and can point guests in whatever direction they need to be pointed whether for an internet fix or the city's best fondue.
