“A great choice in Basel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I have stayed in many Basel hotels in the last couple of years, and The St Gotthard is absolutely up there with the best, and it has a certain charm which some of the others do not. The Tripadvisor reviews here are accurate.

Location is tops - you are a stones throw from Bahnhof SBB, perfect also if arriving by air, the number 50 bus will take you directly here, and you do not need a ticket, your printed hotel reservation is sufficient until you are given your free travel pass at checkin.

All of the staff i met at St Gotthard were great, friendly and professional.

Breakfast room was a delight, very characterful, food very nice and well presented.

The guest room was a nice size and provided everything you will need, the complimentary mini bar a very nice touch! Cleanliness in the room 100%

To conclude, a lovely hotel with great customer service, I will return for sure. Highly recommended.

Only stayed for one night, which was a shame as the place is wonderful. We were given a room with 2 bathrooms, a huge living and sleeping area. There were many TV channels in English. Nice Free mini-bar. Breakfast was really good, everything you could want (which is great as eating out in Basel will cost you). We were only in Basel to attend a concert, a birthday present from my wife (a Helene Fischer concert!), but we will be back as the City was lovely. The old part of town had fantastic buildings dating back up to 700 years. Just watch out when crossing the roads, the trams can be deadly. A very good hotel. They have parrots in the lobby too, great fun. Travelled to Basel by train from Frankfurt, Basel Station is spotless, in fact a nice place to shop.

Great hotel!! Stayed there for two weeks on business and it was just great! Helpfull staff, excellent location, comfortable room and great breakfast service!! Right at the Central Train Station and the Airport Bus Stop. You can go anywhere you want to from the Hotel's door and there are many great places around for lunch and dinner!

The Hotel St. Gotthard in Basel is in a great location, just down the street from the Central train station and close to the junction of several tram stops. The front desk staff was very helpful and very friendly. You can certainly tell this is a family run hotel rather than a chain. Rooms were very nice and clean and included a free minibar and wifi. Hotel lobby is roomy and a nice place to meet and chat with traveling companions. The free breakfast is a full breakfast with very good food. The dining room is worthy of pictures on its own, and the gentlemen who works breakfast is highly entertaining a a real delight himself. If you are going to Basel and want a very comfortable stay in a nice hotel, this is the place.

Room Tip: Since the hotel is near the train station with a number of tram lines running outside, ask for a &qu...

Great location and extremely helpful staff. Only down side was noise from the trams.....which is generally hard to avoid in Basel. Location is close to central station. Like many hotels in Basel you are provided with a free travel pass for public transport which includes to and from airport.

Room Tip: Request a room to the rear of the hotel to limit the disturbance from the trams..

Right across from central train station and very nice rooms. Small boutique hotel with very nice buffet breakfast and free access to city tramway. Helpful staff
We chose this hotel based on tripadvisor and were not disappointed
