The best thing about this hotel is the location, walking distance to center and can jog along the water. We also appreciated the modern, clean look of the lobby and rooms. Great to work from the lobby. We were disappointed with the level of service we received. We are business travelers and have gotten better service in Basel. The staff... More

We were in Switzerland for four days with no set agenda. We were booking hotels as were arrived in our destinations. I booked Hotel D through Trip Advisor as we were pulling into the city. I booked this hotel based on the price and location. We got a great deal on the price, maybe because we booked so last minute,... More

The staff at Hotel D were very welcoming, and the hotel itself was clean and modern. The shower was a treat -- very luxurious fixtures, great water pressure and lovely finishes. Not a far walk from the old town or shopping areas, yet very affordable and peaceful. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for 2 nights after finishing a river cruise. The location to the city was terrific however what made the hotel stand out was the staff t the front desk. From the moment we checked in and regardless of who was on the desk they could not have been more helpful or pleasant. For us the only drawback... More

We took advantage of an online deal for a cheap upgrade to an executive room and it was well worth it. The room was very large, immaculately clean and had a fab floor to ceiling window. The best bit was the bathroom which had an amazing ceiling shower. One word of warning, this isn't a room for the shy. The... More

I was in Basel for pleasure with my wife. I've found hotel D on Internet. It is a wonderful hotel in the city downtown. The breakfast was not included but the room was what I've thought seeing the several pictures on Internet. To be tried absolutely.

Around one week before our departure we received an email from the Hotel D in Basel welcoming us for our forthcoming visit.

Clean rooms, good bathroom. Apart from a big misunderstanding in what we were going to get and pay for, I am generally satisfied. Locationwise - very central, didn't try the breakfast which was chargeable as an extra. Got 90CHF refunded in the end, so can't complain, but if I was the manager of this place I'd look at improving staff's... More
