Hotel St. Gotthard – The 4 star hotel with 125 years of tradition

The 4-star hotel St. Gotthard welcomes you right in the middle of Zurich with its unique location in the city centre. Experience more than 125 years of history and family tradition combined with elegance and modern comfort. 139 rooms and suites invite you to relax and enjoy yourself. Already since 1889 our guests have found our hotel to be an ideal starting point in the heart of Zurich to discover the city, the magic of Switzerland and Europe as a whole.

In 1889 Caspar Manz took over the « Hotel zum St. Gotthard » in a formerly unimportant district of Zurich. Many considered this purchase unwise, but he was absolutely right. Quickly, the Bahnhofstrasse became a first class address. In 1913 running warm water became available in the first hotel rooms. In 1920, they were equipped with phone lines. Prominent personalities like the Dalai Lama, Prince Charles or Arnold Schwarzenegger have been guests at the St. Gotthard. It is this long and rich history that makes our hotel unique today.

Bars & restaurants – enjoy the exclusive, personal service

Cosy and homelike but also flooded with daylight: Already for breakfast our elegant Lounge Bar attracts with the aromatic scent of coffee and oven-fresh pastry – international atmosphere and a light-flooded meeting point in the middle of the hotel. How about French-inspired cuisine? A good glass of wine with a good conversation? For this you're just right at our legendary Lobster & Oyster Bar – a culinary institution which is writing history in Zurich since 1935.

A drink at the Manzoni Bar or the Piazzetta terrace – where the heart of Zurich beats

Italian style experience and coffee specialities at the highest level you can find in our Manzoni Bar. During summer, we like to open our counter outside. Our Piazzetta open-air terrace is the perfect meeting point for the cappuccino break after a shopping tour, an afterwork drink or your sundowner. Located directly at Zurich's famous Bahnhofstrasse we offer our guests an array of cool cocktails and summer dishes.
