Hotel is central, reception staff very friendly and helpful, excellent choice of breakfast dishes and restaurant staff also helpful and friendly. Room kept spotlessly clean. Trains and trams on the doorstep, old town a short walk away.

I come to Basel regularly and do not stay in any other hotel any more, unless this one is fully booked. It is very conveniently located near airport bus, tram stops, railway station, shops and walking distance to the old town. Service is excellent, starting from speedy check-in and check-out and continuing to breakfast and room service. Highly recommended.

Very pleasant stay - convenient location (next to the railway station, walking distance to the old city); great variety of food for breakfast, if compared with other Swiss hotels (we stayed at 3 hotels in different cities during one week trip), high speed and stable WiFi connection. We would definitely choose this hotel again when come Basel next time.

As a business traveler I stayed here when other Basel hotels were already booked and I was quite surprised and happy with everything, every time I stayed. The room was modern and simple but efficient. The most memorable was a great breakfast. Oh did I love it. Fabulous it remains in my memory

I have recently returned from a business trip to Basel and stayed at the Hotel St. Gotthard for 2 nights. If you're looking for a warm friendly welcome then look no further. The family owners are very active with the guests which gives you a homely feeling making this hotel stand out from the typical chains that can be found... More

Room quite normal, as the breakfast. The location is very convenient (in the train station square), but the price is badly high. The real problem is the staff: they are there to let you have a pleasant stay, but they act as they should affirm themselves against the customer. Very bad.

Hotel is conveniently located right by the train station - bus to the airport and trams to other parts of the town right outside the hotel. Tourists is... More

The photos do no justice to this beautifully decorated hotel. Every object, from the sheets to the lamps to the art on the walls, has been selected with an unerring eye. The same attention goes into the buffet breakfast, a generous early morning feast which is one of the best in all of Europe! The central location of this family-run... More

We were very happy staying at this hotel. The room was very clean with welcoming choices of decorations, and colorings. The bathroom was clean, and the over hanging shower head with right level of pressure melted away the tiredness from traveling. The staffs were friendly, and very informative! The location was perfect for getting around the town, and there are... More

The slogan of the hotel is "Come as a guest, leave as a friend" and this is truly what happened. Its clear that the team of this hotel loves working here, and have done so for a long time. You are recognised and welcomed everywhere you go. The family who runs the hotel (and their lovely dog) are actively involved... More
