Hotel D delivers what you would expect from a nice boutique hotel. It is supposed to be exactly what it is. There are, however, some annoying things that, in the overall evaluation, still place it as a nice hotel. A few things bothered me a lot, but then again, this is my personal evaluation. One of them is the automatic... More

One of the best aspects of this hotel is its location. It’s within walking distance of the river (with its cruise ship docks), buses and trams pass its front door, and it’s an easy walk to the market square and the Old Town. The Reception staff were young, friendly and eager to help. One young man at the desk looked... More

We had one night in Basal before taking a river cruise to Amsterdam. Our stay at the Hotel D was quite pleasant though short. We arrived from the airport by taxi(no shuttle) on a hot day in June. The lobby of the hotel was small and pretty hot on an unusually hot day. The room, however, was very clean and... More

I travel to Basel for business several times per year. This was my first stay at the hotel and it was a pleasant experience. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and modern. I liked all the connection options -USB port, etc. I would not hesitate to stay at the hotel again.

I used to live in Basel, and was returning to meet up with friends. Usually I stay with friends, but had family with me so didn't want to overwhelm them. Swiss hotels are notoriously overpriced, so I was glad to find Hotel D which was reasonable and in a fantastic convenient central location, the Rhein is literally across the street.... More

This hotel is a nice, new, modern, boutique hotel. It's clean, offers free Wifi, and is just around the corner to the inner-city and the Rhine. My room was on the street side and at night it was quiet. In the morning, the trams start up and you begin to hear some noise, but I slept with my window open... More

Very friendly staff and very comfortable hotel. It is located near the river and Marktplatz. Easy to get to by tram. Hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but there are many cozy places to eat at the old town nearby.

The location of the hotel is at the edge of Alt Stadt. Easy walking distance to many things. Even though we had a mobility ticket we only used it a couple of times.

The hotel was very easy to reach from Basel main train station by bus. The staff on duty was also very helpful on getting many information for us. Had a problem of getting a rental car since it was a long weekend, which he also assisted by providing potential contacts. Comfortable & beautiful room, and unique modern design. Thumbs up!
