We had a wonderful time at the St. Gotthard Basel. Their motto "Come as a guest, leave as a friend" is absolutely true. Everything about the hotel was top notch. All the staff members from the chamber maids, kitchen help and front desk are courteous, helpful and lovely people. We (family of 5) stayed in the beautiful suite/apartment and we... More

We had chosen (family of 4) St Gotthard Hotel in Basel, Switzerland for our 7 night stay in August. We expected that it would be a nice hotel after reading the reviews of other guests and going through the photos, but it really exceeded our expectations! The staff were very helpful and friendly, the room was very spacious (65 sq.mtr)... More

Everything about my stay this time was excellent, I like especially the comfort of the beds, the room layout and especially you're delicious breakfast buffet. I was disappointed this time however that the mini-bar was not stocked and contained half eaten food from the previous guest, I took a picture and showed it to the reception desk man but there...

I have stayed in the St Gotthard 6 or 7 times on business, the staff are always friendly and helpful. The rooms are always spotless. It is close to the station so convenient. On my latest visit I noticed that they now have a small bar, although I didn't use it. There is free wi-fi and use of the mini... More

We always stay at the St. Gotthard when in Basel. It's proximity to the manin SBB train station, to the trams, to downtown, its very friendly staff, and wonderful(!) breakfast buffet make it a perfect hotel for us.

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
