Since 1929 the Geyer family has run the GAIA HOTEL. "Come as a guest, leave as a friend" is the hotel's motto. Friendship begins at reception. Guests are welcomed and bidden farewell as friends of the house. The memorable atmosphere is created from a careful balance of art and tradition.

Since 1929, the Geyer family has run the former Hotel St. Gotthard Basel, which is called GAIA HOTEL since 1. October 2015. GAIA means “mother earth” and personifies the entire ecosystem of Planet Earth. The hotel offers exclusively regional, organic and biodynamic products. This is our direct contribution for well-being, happiness and the hopeful future of generations to come. 

Basel‘s historic city center is just a 10 minute walk away. The 4-star boutique hotel offers its guests more than just contemporary comfort. The property combines modern technology within the setting of a hospitable family-business. The Motto “Come as a guest, leave as a friend” is our life style.

We choose ORGANIC

Regardless of diet, organic foods and products are a smart priority. Opting for organic is an effective choice for personal and planetary welfare. We made this choice and are buying organic products - bursting with more nutrition, taste, and sustainable ingredients. This is our direct contribution for immediate well-being, happiness and the hopeful future of generations to come.


More than almost any other Swiss city, Basel is renowned for its cultural highlights. More than 40 museums offer something for everyone; some, such as the Kunstmuseum Basel and the Fondation Beyeler, are even world famous. You can also encounter art by simply strolling through the city, with works by Serra, Borofski, Rodin and many others on display. The numerous galleries, vibrant theatre scene, and sheer variety of events held throughout the entire year also make Basel what it is today – a captivating city for connoisseurs of culture.

The meticulous and individual furnishings, cheerful and earthy colors of yellow and red-brown, supported by decorative lighting, render the comfortable rooms warm and homely.
