I need to stay a few days in hotel in Basel; I chose this one because of low price with breakfast and free parking. I was definitely positively surprised, because hotel offered more than I've expected. Except free parking, there was free WiFi and Mobility Ticket for free public transport. Hotel is not in Basel, but there is tramway no.... More

Don't be turned off by the fact that this actually isn't in Basel. For all intents and purposes it is. Birsfelden has a charm of its own. There are several nice restaurants on the street. My room was pristine with a lovely view. I walked from the train station and it took about a half hour. Trams are free in... More

Doubted between poor and average as i spent a though night trying to sleep on a mattress that was only slightly more comfortable than the lino flooring and a pillow as fluffy as a handkerchief, but then again, some people like a solid slab to sleep on. Good things to say about the Alfa too: conveniently located at a tram... More

I chose the hotel because it was relatively inexpensive and had free parking. In terms of making a choice, here are a few things to add/reinforce to the other reviews. First, the rooms are a bit cramped. The desk was not as functional because it was difficult to get the chair in and out because of the beds. The review... More

This hotel is a 2.2 mile walk from the Basel SBB train station, and about equally far from the center of Basel town. It is actually in a town called Birsfelden. It has a tram stop right outside that can cut your walk comfortably. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast plain and simple. We found the rooms... More

Due to the Basel Tattoo, my recent visit to Basel wound up with me staying outside Basel in Birsfelden. I had not realised that in fact Birsfelden and Basel are basically merged, and that Birsfelden is just a few stops from the Basel railway station. But not being in Basel by name, means that hotels in Birsfelden charge a great... More

We stopped off on the way back from Italy so as to visit at least one of the fantastic museums in Basel and were very happy with our choice. The rooms are a little old fashioned but perfectly acceptable and the hotel restaurant is excellent and great value. It was full both nights we stayed here and was so good,... More

Minotel Alfa is really a good place to relax. I stayed here for just three days for business and had a great time. Everything related to food, services or accommodation is perfect here and we had no issues. I would highly recommend it.
