This property was the first pit stop to a 4 night sojourn to Switzerland. What it became was a future destination! If you are reading my review to find a hotel in Basel that is close to the railway, look no further. We traveled by train from Paris to Basel after a long flight and travel day from the US.... More

Although interior design, e.g. color scheme, is not up to date, the rooms are spacious, clean, quiet and stocked with a free mini-bar. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Any time I asked for something or when once i reported a malfunctioning bathtub facet they responded promptly. The breakfast to tip top.

This hotel was close to the central train station which in most cities may be a negative but in quaint Basel it is a positive as you are close to everything. We walked to our business engagements - and took the extensive tram network to restaurants and sights. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent in an... More

We stopped over in Basel, our first city in our first visit to Switzerland, on our way to Lucerne. Hotel St Gotthard was directly opposite the train station (2-3 minutes on foot with luggage) and right next to the tram station. This made it an obvious choice for us when we booked online. However, not so obvious was the level... More

An excellent four stars, very comfortable and very close to the station and the city centre. Employees always present, very kind and helpful. Very clean and comfortable rooms and bathroom, well furnished, well lighted and efficient. Great breakfast included, products quality excellent. Complimentary fast wifi. Swiss rates (very high, this is the only reason for the missing fifth star).

We stayed at the Hotel St. Gotthard in Basel for nearly two weeks a few years ago and were happy to return again for a week's visit this July. Since our last visit, there had been some remodeling to add a juice bar in the lobby, and there were even more lovely art objects on display. Otherwise, everything was just... More

Their slogan above, is obviously just advertising fluff, but their friendliness and warm welcome were certainly well up there with the very best we have ever received. The location is great for train travellers (which we were), though the next door McDonalds is slightly off-putting. Nevertheless, we would happily stay there again with a good sized, clean and very quiet... More

Very easy to reach from train station and right next to the main tram stops. Our room was had eveyrything we needed and was clean, maybe a bit small if staying more than 1 night. Friendly reception. There is also the possibilty to use a nearby gym at a reduced cost.

I just spent 12 nights at the Hotel St. Gotthard and had a great stay. The rooms are nicely sized with a good desk area to work (I was there on business). The included breakfast was very nice, good selection of meats, cheeses, breads, hot dishes, etc. The staff in the breakfast room was very kind and wanted to make... More

Great location right next to Basel SBB bahnhof (Railway station) with easy transport links. Very useful as taxi beyond the railway station and hotels are hard to find. Tram is the best mode of transport to get around the city. A supermarket is located right next to the hotel but was only told on the last day that the minibar... More

The elegantly furnished 95 rooms not only provide for a restful and enjoyable stay to the guests of the Hotel St. Gotthard Basel.
