“Perfect location and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed here only for a night but they gave me a warm welcome with lots of smiles. They also provided me with a service with humour so that it's fun to talk with them. The room is clean and comfortable to stay. I had a great night in Zurich. I strongly recommend this hotel if you want to have a great time in Switzerland.

Zurich is ridiculously expensive. This hotel represents a good value in a city that makes you crazy with their prices. Right across from the train station and an easy walk around town. Can be a bit loud if your room overlooks the alley because of the outdoor seating. Bed was comfy and bathroom was nice. TV was only ok but the Wifi was decent. It is located on the best street in Zurich.

Room Tip: ask for one not overlooking the alley due to the restaurant below

Dear GinaH,

thank you for your positive review and the time you have taken to give us this feedback. As you observed Zürich is an expensive town but on our web site you can always find our best price guarantee. Our Wi-fi is free of charge as in the rooms as also in public areas. Our rooms have isolated windows to avoid the noise from the street.

Looking forward to welcoming you again, we remain

A nice, friendly, central hotel. Very close to Zurich central train station and to the main shopping street. It is also close to the bank of Zurich lake. The rooms are comfortable and well decorated. A perfect choice for your stay in Zurich.

The perfect choice when in Zurich. 1 minute away from the main train station. In the Banhof Strasse. Very nice renovated rooms. Nicely equipped. Bathrooms and showers are spotless. Rooms are not large, but really comfortable and nice. The outdoor cafe serves good food and is in a strategic location on the Banhof Strasse. Highly recommend

We organised a Dining Etiquette Training at the Hotel St.Gotthard for our group of international MBA students at the St.Gallen MBA. The Director Mr Santschi personally led the training and with insight, authority and humour introduced us to Swiss Dining etiquette - whilst at the same time we sampled his culinary delights and enjoyed the immaculate service of his team. Fantastic event, great location, outstanding service.

I don't have anything negative to say. In terms of positives, it has a beautiful independent charm, very nice staff and in terms of location, it's as good as it gets in downtown Zurich. The food is good and European ( as opposed to a North American thing) and for options beyond the hotel, it is limitless.

The St. Gotthard hotel is located at the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich and wonderful for shopping, sightseeing and business. The hospitality people are very friendly, helpfully and attentive. The rooms are modern and quiet. The public traffic is also to recommend and in front of the hotel. You can use the tram to the Zurich lake or you can make a fifteen minute walk. All around you can find all natinal and international shops.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms with a nice view over the Bahnhofstrasse.
