Perhaps I shouldn’t but I get very nervous as I approach an old European hotel that I have booked sight unseen over the internet. So it was with some trepidation that I travelled the 50 metres from the Basel Bahnhof to the Hotel St Gotthard. The foyer cheered me up a little as did the very helpful woman on the... More

A wonderful hotel right outside the central train station in Basel. The front desk staff (Matt) is extremely helpful with things to do and places to eat nearby. It was hot when we arrived and when we got to our room the A/C was very nice welcome! Also located next to the COOP grocery store and a fantastic little Swiss... More

This hotel is charming. It's located across from the train station and next to the tram station - easy access to anything. Personnel was extremely helpful and welcoming, at the front desk and breakfast room. Rooms are spotless, comfortable, have everything that you need including air conditioning that was greatly needed during the unusually hot days. Noise from the tram... More

I chose the hotel based on previous reviews and found them to be accurate. The hotel is spotlessly clean, very conveniently located, and everything worked well. The staff were efficient and friendly, and responsive to our needs. Breakfast was good, and made excellent by the care and attention to detail provided by Luca and his team. We had no issues...

This hotel has many traditional charms to it, whilst maintaining a high standard at an affordable Swiss price. The location is extremely convenient, being located next to the central train station [Basel] and a short walk from the city center. Checking into the hotel was very efficient and quick. The room was spacious, modern, clean and what you would expect... More

I have stayed at Gotthard hotel couple of times. However, every time I stayed, I was compelled to come again. Nice to enjoy the hospitality this time as well. Served breakfast in room at odd hours. Made hotel bookings on my behalf upon request. Every member very welcoming and ready to help.

The location is central and extremely convenient. Nevertheless, the area in front of the main station is noisy - particularly because of the tram system which is only quiet for about 5 - 6 hours in each 24. Consequently, the rooms overlooking the back of the hotel are preferable - but more expensive. Most important during this 2015 European heatwave... More

This is a wonderfully characterful hotel with an eclectic mixture of period features, such as the impressive panelled dining room and stained glass right up to ultra modern objets d'art in the lobby and pictures on the walls. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even to the extent of offering us glasses of chilled water after we had checked... More

Welcomed like royalty! We arrived hours before check-in and were checked-in quickly and immediately shown to an upgraded room. We were then on our way to tour the city with the tram passes provided to us which is right around the corner from the hotel. We also were a very short walk from the Basel train station. As excellent breakfast... More
