I don't think that I have ever written a review on sites such as this but I feel like the hotel and staff here deserve some praise having stayed there last weekend. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our luggage did not arrive and so we were somewhat relieved to see a card in the bathroom asking if "we... More

Close to the main station and on several tram and bus routes, this hotel can't be beaten for location. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the decor attractive. The breakfast room is particularly characterful, and the breakfast itself very good. Our room was very comfortable, the only minor criticism being that the bathroom was a bit on the small... More

To reach this hotel turn right as you come out of the station, cross the tram lines and it is on the left just a little way along the road. We missed it as we came out and ended up hauling our suitcases right around the block. Our train arrived at 10.30 so it was too early to check in... More

We arrived Basel on a very hot Thursday afternoon and wheeled our simple luggage across a network of tracks to the St. Gotthard, where we had stayed several years ago. When we were last there the management was in the process of acquiring a couple of new buildings. The lobby and various hallways are all decked with splashy prints on... More

we needed a hotel close to DB Bahn . Hotel St Gotthard was ideal,we were able to do sightseeing and close enough to restaurants .there is plenty of things to do in Basel and it is an ideal place to visit or as we did use as a starter for onward travel to the black forest.

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...
