Tested Travel really liked Hotel Bristol.
Tested Travel chose Hotel Bristol because it is centrally located in Zermatt ( on Schluhmattstrasse 3). In addition to its excellent location -- near the train, shopping, and gondolas -- the staff were helpful and the breakfast was delicious.
Our family of four stayed very comfortably in the spacious, modern quadruple room. With views of the Matterhorn, Hotel Bristol could not be beaten!
The hotel is a short walk (10 minutes) from the train station and a short walk (10 minutes) to the gondola station that can get you started on your trek to the Matterhorn! The hotel is located next to the Matter Vispa river which runs through the center of town. An excellent walking path along the river makes for a nice trek.
The hotel breakfast was ample and delicious. Tested Travel also ate dinner at Hotel Bristol. The fixed price menu provided a tasty and convenient option after a day of hiking.
Also good to note that the hotel has a large storage room for luggage. While we did not ski while visiting Zermatt, we did see lots of ski gear well stored in the large storage area. Don't fear, there is room for your gear!
