I just spent 12 nights at the Hotel St. Gotthard and had a great stay. The rooms are nicely sized with a good desk area to work (I was there on business). The included breakfast was very nice, good selection of meats, cheeses, breads, hot dishes, etc. The staff in the breakfast room was very kind and wanted to make sure you felt well served, even thought the breakfast is done buffet style. Food is expensive in Switzerland, so the breakfast is a very nice inclusion. The hotel was very clean and the front desk staff was helpful in the few interactions I had with them.
Probably my only comment would be about the housekeepers. They were outstanding in terms of cleaning, but they start promptly at 8:00 a.m. even on weekends, so if you are wanting some extra sleep, be sure to put the do not disturb sign on the door. Not really a complaint as I love a clean room!
All in all it was a great stay and I would absolutely consider staying here again on my next trip to Basel.
