Booked this for a one-night stay in November. I was in town for one of the Baloise Sessions held at the Messe, which is maybe a three minute walk from the hotel - the city center is maybe 15-20 minutes walk away, but there are trams. My room was ready before official check-in time. The room was rather tiny, consisting... More

We have been staying here for 4 nights to see the Christmas markets in Basel. Breakfast very good, plenty of choices each morning - continental breakfast and fresh fruit salad. We also ate here on our first night - would definitely recommend vegetarian rosti which was very nice. We were upgraded to a luxury room which is very spacious. Beds... More

This is very convenient, right on a tram stop into the city, and a short journey from the airport. It's very clean and the restaurant serves good food. Breakfast is straightforward but plentiful and wholesome. If things go wrong, the staff and boss are keen to make amends. On the negative side, rooms are shabby and tiny, and we found... More

Except for the location, I wouldn't recommend this hotel. My room was tiny, the furniture outdated, wi-fi connection not always available in the room, and, most of all, there was just one, hidden, electrical socket. Breakfast is included and the overall price sounds quite "normal" for Switzerland, but I found my stay too expensive for what offered. The staff is... More

A typical germanic hotel with plenty of atmosphere in its decoration. Everywhere was clean, but the furniture was battered. The food in the restaurant was good value and it was well patronised. The staff worked hard. Just the place for a one night stay in the expensive city of Basel

We stayed in the Basil City Apartments connected with this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, but kitchen equipment was very limited. There were two of us but only one coffee pod for the machine. We asked for non feather pillows due to one of us having an allergy. This was not done and the hotel is about 300... More

Looking for an accommodation for a business trip for one night and found the Rheinfelder Hof. Hotel was as expected. Small room but with shower, toilet and washing bassin. The basin was quite unusually integrated in the room, never saw that solution. Everything was clean. It is also a good option for a private, low budget weekend trip to Basel... More

Enjoyed sharing a delicious pizza for lunch as well as drinks with my husband while staying in Basel. The service was quick and the staff very friendly and helpful. As it was a very hot day we chose to sit next to an open window as the restaurant wasn't air conditioned. Recommend having a meal here.

Rooms are slightly outdated and could do with a refurb. I had a double-room with a single bedroom attached to it. The sink is in the room, the wetroom separate. Not frill - working shower, clean sheets and towel so covers the basics. Breakfast was included in my rate - it didn't excite me much and I was missing fresh... More

We stayed in a so-called budget room which was comfortable, clean and noisy. The beds were fine, but the pillow too soft. The shower was small but effective and there was hot water, when needed. It was spotless throughout our stay. The staff were helpful and v accommodating and there were sparkling water and fresh apples in reception. As the... More
