Great location right in the city centre is obviously a big bonus with St Gotthard. Service is really good and efficient - my car was taken to the garage so swiftly I hardly got out of the car before it disappeared from my eyes. Building has been renovated with excellent taste, even though the rooms are really modern and comfortable... More

Hotel St. Gotthard is a convenient two-minute stroll from the bahnhof and wonderful views from the top floor. Our room was clean, modern and well appointed with windows that open for fresh air and city sounds.

A colleague checked in earlier in the day with very friendly and helpful staff, but as we were in a rush I waited until after our meetings to come back and do so. This was a bad decision. The service was a complete turnaround from what I had observed earlier. The staff was disinterested and, while not rude, certainly short... More

This was selected as a close to the train station hotel, which it is. I booked it knowing it was rather pricey, almost three times my usual price in Geneva SW. The hotel is on a street corner along the main shopping street in Zurich, close to an underground entrance to the train station and a few blocks from a... More

Perfect location and a great oyster and lobster restaurant with average but expensive rooms and very very poor breakfast! We had been to the restaurant before and the main reason to stay at the hotel is that we were returning to the restaurant.

The is a nice hotel in a very good location. Rooms are spacious if you pay for the larger rooms - not so much space in the standard rooms. Service is to a reasonable standard for Europe and so lags behind what would be normal in the Far East. Not good value for money - but that is normal for... More

Great location, excellent staff. Price is reasonable. We stayed during X mas holiday. location is just perfect, right at Banhoffstasse with lots of shopping and restaurant. Hotel staff let me check in early, around 11 am as the usual 3pm. Can't go wrong with this hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel St. Gotthard, built in 1889, has been owned and managed by the Manz family for over a century. Recently refurbished, modernized and enlarged with great attention to details, it can be considered a true architectural achievement in itself and one of the leading business hotels today in Zurich. The five-floor building provides a free Wireless Internet access for all 143 spacious rooms, including 11 Suites. With its three restaurants and the newly designed Lobby and Front Desk area, the Hotel St. Gotthard meets all the expectations of the demanding traveler. The Hotel lies directly in the heart of the city, located on the world famous Bahnhofstrasse, within 10 minutes walk from sightseeing, the business district and Lake Zurich. Caspar Manz, the founder’s grandson, established the famous Lobster and Oyster Bar in 1935 and since then it has been a culinary institution amongst gastronomic circles. Pleasant piano live music will welcome you for your aperitif at the Lobby Bar and will accompany you through the evening.
