Excellent location, especially for rail and local transport, and very helpful staff. We stayed in 2 different rooms - very different in style and size, both rooms very clean and with good quality furnishings. Comfortable, old style past luxury feel to the hotel. Good wifi reception, but need to be aware of the three day access cycle. Expensive, but then... More

The hotel is just a block from the main train station, and in front of a tram stop. Its an easy walk to the old town. Mohammed was very helpful at the front desk and the room was very comfortable. They have a restaurant that sets up seats out on the street, good food although pricey.

Hotel was fine, however nothing special. Room relatively small and a bit smelly from the bathroom. Cleanlyness however could improve (hair on the bed, hairdryer sticky from hairspray) and friendliness of staff was not outstanding but in this standard you would expect a bit more.

I have to say this is good hotel. It's a no chain hotel so its a leap in the dark for some business travelers.

This old but modern styled hotel has a great history (a lot of famous politicians, actors, business people visited it the past 100 years). The location about 100 m from the main railway station Zürich HB and direct at the Bahnhostrasse is top. You don't need a car. We found everything in walking distance: nice restaurants, all kind of shops,... More

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. The hotel also has 5 state of the art conference rooms with a capacity of up to 100 people for successful meetings and elegant receptions. ... more   less
